Well if she doesn't do it then I can. I wouldn't mind have something like that for the board.

If only you could edit a thread and add a poll.

Yeah sure, you can have the honors since you brought it up again.

It wouldn't have ot be a week. It could be a month. We've been through this before. You should start a poll and get everyone elses opinion. I'll do it if you want.

I don't know, with the way the boards been (people being mopey and not a lot happening) a Week just might be a little hard to determine.

But maybe it's just me.

For the record, you ultimately contridicted yourself there.

But enough of this, seriously. Get back on topic or I will close this thread.

Deesse... I am slighty shocked to hear that...

Okay, actually I am really shocked.

Well, people considered ME a negative type but I never consider myself a negative type. But let me ask you something. Is being positive the best thing in the world? Probably, but if you got no negative stuff, you probably won't last long. How does this work?

Well, for once, if someone is being positive and agree to anyone's idea, then that is a complete negative. Their voice will never heard because they are just simply agreeing. "Yep. That's a good idea." If someone who have a negative opinion of the idea, then the positive behavior and the negative behavior balance each other out, and create a better situation, then just having either one negative or positive side from overachieving one another.

Now, consider me a negative type, but by simply doing that, you also become a negative type in MY views. How does this happened? Because we are opposite trying to create a prefect balance. Everyone should think of that. You can't expect life to be completely perfect if it was only just for positive. Negative are there to prevent from a HUGE risk factor that the positive may cause.

And yes, Kaijin did change my custom title because he took one of my action so serious, that he refused to listen an innocent's side of a story. And he act too harsh and took it seriously, it wasn't really his action that make the outcome of someone's personality. What I mean is, he take thing so seriously that even if it was someone's else own choice, he doesn't care and blame it on that person (even through that person knew what he/she was doing).

Plus, everyone take my posts too seriously if I am being honest. And why is that such a bad thing? I am not allow to express my feeling and not allow to speak on my behalfs? I find it hard to believe but that is very negative and a bad choice of action. Like what you said, Deesse.

"There is really nothing you can do to stop thing, unless people stop posting and leave their opinous and options to themselves, a message board is here for people to come and interact with each other have a fun time and being able to let their voice being heard."

Chances are... there are very limited few and are afraid that the staff would overpower or abuse a poster like me.

I am not speaking harshly Deesse... You see, I rather see a prefect balance instead of just having the positive corrupt the board. You need negative if you actually want to protect the board.

And while on that topic... think about it... Let's say a person like me did his hardest to give his opinion and most people think I (or anyone else, I think they are better anyway.) deverse a Member of the Month Award. Now let's say another user came out of nowhere and talk you guys how to be make the board better. Now another month came and that other user got a award while the deversed poster get nothing. Because the staff' view is going to be different from the member's view, you may actually cause everyone to be afraid since you has the upper hand.

I am just trying to make a better situation out of these. You can't be angry at me because I am just saying this. It is because I am actually stating MY feeling, and MY opinion. You can't expect me to agree according to everyone's law but you can expect me to be presuaded at anytime...

If there was to be a member of the month, I believe that it shouldn't be given on how many posts/ how active you are, but on a post that is truly deserves it. Another point is I think everyone would at least try to be civil and not disregard one anothers opinion if they are trying to earn the title.

So yes my little blurb...

Deesse is right, I think. And, since she brought up the XG awards... you're the only one I recall getting angry about that, Beo. No one else. The board wasn't hacked over it, and it didn't produce any spam I can remember.

That is a possibility, but like who is going to get a grudge that intense that they will hack the board, if a person got that angry over a thing like member of the month, then they seriously have some issues, it's just a fun thing and their is always going to be favourites among certain people, you really can't do anything about that.

2.) Flaming/Spamming.

People know not to do that, it's common sense, and they will get in a lot of trouble for making a stupid post like that. Flaming and spamming is always an issue on message boards and your going to get it even if we didn't have member of the month.

and all of the sudden, Kaijin get pissed and viola, he edit the thread and give someone else the Member of the Month award. It could generate enough problem to say who is the actual member of the month.

Kaijin wouldn't even do a thing like that, not any of the staff would do that without discussing it with the other staff members/admins.

Beowulf, I get what your saying but your taking out all the positive things and leaving the negative things. All of them are a possibility, but so is everything else on this board. Every time you post their is a risk that the board will get hacked, people will spam and flame and members have a grumpy days. There is really nothing you can do to stop thing, unless people stop posting and leave their opinous and options to themselves, a message board is here for people to come and interact with each other have a fun time and being able to let their voice being heard.

It's just member of the month, it's not going to kill people. Hey we even had the XG votes before, people didn't get too angry at that, I didn't see hacking or spammy flamy posts.

Thank you for voting me. (Nah, just messing around.)

Well, I do see your point but there are few problems I see:

1.) Hacking. No matter what, hacking is alway the number one problem. Why? Let say we create enough hatred because most members doesn't agree on how people are awarded. Like let say... Zabuza. (Excuse me, but I need to borrow your name for a while.)

Let say that... oh, I got the first award, Sparda got the second award, Cyro got the third award, Hobo got the 4th and Kenshin got the 5th. Somewhere along the line, he get mad because he worked hard to post his story. And suddenly, he hacked the board. Not really a good sign.

2.) Flaming/Spamming. Everyone's worst... problem. If someone get a feeling like they are being ruled out, they may run around, posting like: "I AM HATED! I DIDN'T GET ANY AWARD BECAUSE NO ONE LIKE ME." The truth is... I don't like seeing people react to that way, and not only that, but it get the feeling that we are ruling alot of members out that way.

3.) Staff's anger management. The one I thought it would be interesting to say. Suppose a poster get his award. And that would be me (not an actual award. Give me a fake one.) and all of the sudden, Kaijin get pissed and viola, he edit the thread and give someone else the Member of the Month award. It could generate enough problem to say who is the actual member of the month.

4.) Member of the Month's spamming/posting spree. Okay, now how is this a problem? Simple, this make people feel inferior to other people and all of the sudden, the Member of the Month decide to take control of those interior member and have a similar posting rule to Xeogred... Which is mostly , , . No offense, Xeogred. Some of us just doing our best to make it longer.

I am more concern about how are we going to appoach this. If we do this too serious, everyone will think it would be a race to get the member of the month.

Like Cyro said, we would know who the member of the month really was. I like that sticky idea too, that way everyone will be able to see who the member of the month is

Easy solution to that problem: Have a sticky thread made by the staff with the title saying something like "Member of the month: March- Beowulf". That way people wouldn't think to copy so much. And besides, everyone is going to know who the real winner is anyway. If a newbie registered here and made the banner for himself, would you believe him if you saw that he'd only made 50 or posts? i can pretty much guarantee that unless you're well known at this board you won't be receiving that title.

Nice, Deesse...

One problem. Suppose if someone took that banner and put it in their OWN bio. and not the winner's bio, how the hell are we suppose to tell who is the real Member of the Month?

And no, someone can edit the name as well so... what would happened if we got as least 10 members of the month in the same month? It would be very confusing and attract more idiots to the board.

"Oh look, I know where this picture come from. I should copy the fonts, the color, the exact size and picture and with a little work, I can declare myself as the Member of the Month while there is an other member of the month. So this way, there would be 2 members of the month in the same month! "

While doing that, we are really going to have as least 2 posters fighting over it and they will start spamming and flaming like hell. And guess what? We might be forced to ban the real Member of the Month and the fake Member of the Month for just breaking the rules. And we really don't want that through.

And not only that, but we don't want our deserving member get all heartbroken for all of those hard effort they paid off to do and may want to put this board in a bad reputation for depressed people only.

"Look mommy. I work hard to get 500 posts with 3 essays for each posts I did, and when the next month came, I get nothing in return." Chances are? Probably a mother going to get mad and raze this board. Or more hacking, if possible.

What you are crazy lol. That would be a bad idea giving the Member of the Month admin powers for a month.

Maybe someone can create a Member of the Month banner for the winner to place in there bio, place the date on the banner too though so no-one can just put a banner in

EDIT: Here is what I had in mind for the banner Something like that.

Heh, no problem. One thing I am good at is being a stubborn rebel who make thing have worth a while to listen. RAWR!

Well, I alway have a strong and honest opinion that I let out every now and then. If it is something I disagree, I will kept on fighting until I am pleased. If I agree, then I would still do the same as I disagree. However, I have to listen to people in order to understand their feeling just before I agree/disagree in respect.

Why?

It would be too stupid just have a bunch of yes-man and yes-woman. So this would have to put as least ONE HONEST person in the last line of defense. Since not alot of people does this well, I thought maybe it would easier for me to do it. Heck, not alot of honest people have the courage to speak on their own free will.

And not alot of people listen to me, so they might not live longer. (Just kidding.)

Yeah, the problem I see is it could create spam, but that's basically the only bad thing I see ... other than this being hectic.

But honestly, I don't think that it's a good idea. Unless there's some rules to it, or something. But the good side would be that some would try and post more carefully (thus making nicer posts)
