What is this all about, Alkie? POTWA 2013
« on: April 02, 2013, 09:28:20 am »
For your consideration, the powers that be at the good ol’ Orangwhoopass have decided to create a system to reward all the wonderful contribution to this forum.  This is a Talk Zone and Game Zone award and it is restricted to you the Zoners who spend many a “pooductive” minute offering your viewpoints for all to laugh… errr…. read!  It’s the very least we can do and we mean that sincerely.  So here is how it works:

The Mihoba Award

We already have a contributor column called "From Left Field" (FLF) wherein a TZ'er (Zoner) can submit an article for publication on this site.  But we think that most people would rather just post *hit and run* comments in the TZ or GZ and be done with it.  We think we need to have a "highlight" system where we can place some sort of recognition for outstanding contributions to the TZ, be it hit and run or a tome of some sort.  So, we’ve created the “Mihoba Award” (NOTE: The award is basically a "Post of the Week" award, but due to overwhelming maintenace this has taken on, don't hold us to the weekly award part for now) to be given to each and every post of distinguish merit.  So will it be daily?  No, it will be a weekly recognition (somewhat), hence why it is the POTWA (Post of the Week Award).  What we will do is recognize an outstanding TZ or GZ contribution for said week. There is some technical glich in the space-time continuim that has delayed our ability to append blue stars to your profile, so at best, you'll get recognized on the site by a formal declaration of some sort. Each POTWA will be archived in this forum for viewing and then at the end of the year, we will choose one of these POTWA winners as a strong candidate for the coveted Post of the Year award.  So collect as many “Mihobas” as you can and see how much more welcome you’ll be at parties, how dogs will stop chasing you, how women will swoon in your presence, blah, blah, blah.  You know the drill, we recognize, you get swelled head, we make fun of you, you leave and then we all wonder whatever happened to that guy (see: Breedlove, Brian or Alkie, The).

The Nomination Process and Winner Selection

If you see a post that you think is worthy of recognition, simply use the “report to moderator” function beneath said post and put “POTWA” or "Mihoba" in the subject and we will know what you’re saying.  Each Wednesday (or so), moderators will review the nominees for that week and choose a winner.  Nomination sent in on Wednesday will roll over for the following week’s consideration for the “Mihoba”.  So from now until Tuesday, it’s anyone’s award to take this week.  On Wednesday, all moderators will vote in the secret chambers behind the Whataburger on 34th Street.  The winner will be selected that Thursday and we will announce it on Friday to signify your worthiness to be in our presence.

What is a Post worthy of consideration?

Anything you Zoners deem worthy, from a complete meltdown by a TexasJoshua (although he’s gone, so no sense in recognizing a poser like that) to a one line classic like “pooductive” from Gleek.  From a Limey cricket story to an Alkie misspent youth sad story.  From a stros-ray head spinning analysis to a pravata comprehensive literary gem.  From a JimR WFW to a Noe long-ass winded tome.  You think it’s so bad it’s good, submit it.  You think it so good it has to be recognized, submit it.  The moderators will take anything you say is worthy of review and hold their noses to make the final selection.
