Hacker of the Month, coming soon!

After the bumpy roller coaster ride for things to settle in, finally everything is running smoothly. To initiate incentive for you hard working code hackers we have decided to announce “Hacker of the Month”. Here is how this is going to work.

-You can nominate yourself or another code hacker in the appropriate thread, (coming soon)
-For your nomination to be accepted it must be second by someone other then yourself. Your nomination will not be counted if it is not second.
-5 nominations will be picked
-A vote will then take place where everyone will vote on the Hacker for that month.

The winner receives the pride and joy of knowing your peers like you. You also a get a “Winner” button beside your name, which signifies you have been hacker of the month. You will continue to have this forever. You will also be able to post a banner or button on your website so everyone knows you were “Hacker of the Month”. We are concocting more prizes, which are bigger and better; however, we don’t want to spoil the anticipation yet.

Nomination process for next month's contest will start this Wednesday, 5th of December.
We will be accepting nominees for 10 days, until Saturday the 15th. The staff here will then choose the 5 hackers that proceed to the finals.
The actual voting will take place during 15 days, between the 15th and 31st.
On January 1st, 2002 we will announce the first Hacker of the Month ever!

So hackers, start up your editors and let the hacking begin!

Fellow designers are welcome to contribute graphics for the winners, it would be very appreciated.

Very nice idea of having a nomination for "Hacker of the Month". I am sure that I will not stand a chance to be Hacker of the Month, since I haven't had much spare time to create any hacks, and even less to be arround, however that will change soon I hope

Anyways, can't wait to begin nominating who I think is the Hacker of the Month

1) what are your 'regulations' as far as hackers-turned-vB officials?

2) Is it feasible to nominate or vote for a hacker that hasn't posted a new hack at all, but his old hacks are still among the best ever?

I'll take a hypothetical example: would it be feasible that Ed Sullivan may end up the winner?

Just asking for clarification, because there are a few hackers who need imo to get credit for building this community to begin with, even if they're not actively hacking or participating *now*

Well said, Bira. There have always been great hackers. And there are more good ones showing up all the time. It's a wonderful community.

You can nominate anyone that used to be a hacker and now a developer, or something who used to be a hacker but has sadly stopped doing hacks.
Ok?
