Pwolf wrote:How about something that recognizes a member of the community who has contributed to making the community as a whole better (in one way or another)? I'm not really talking about "most helpful" here as there are plenty of people out there who may or may not necessarily have a huge presence in the forum but work towards giving the community more then just what's there. These people create events such as contests within the community, promote thoughtful discussions, create scripts, tools, programs to make what we do just alittle bit easier... Just as an example, the people I would be thinking of would be:
Godix - Keeping us real and giving us something to discuss from to time.
Brad - Online IC even though he's a lazy bastard
Code - ProjectOrg Editor, various discussion threads, and his recent Lip Flapper
Zarxrax - His work on ZarxGUI
Just to name a few.

Lots of people are doing work in the background that they never really get recognition for, and a category like this would still be heavily slanted in the favor of people who are doing stuff that is heavily visible to the community at large.

Pwolf wrote:right, lets just get back on topic.
Pwolf wrote:I agree but that sort of is the point. If someone is doing work in the background, does anyone even know anything is changing or getting better. The perspective of most of the members will still be that nothing has changed. If someone's work is generating a visible contribution to the community, then I think they deserve some recognition over someone who is keeping their work secretive. I guess, at least in the terms of the site admins, it would be nice if there was a bit more transparency. Maybe I'm misinterpreting what your saying though, can you give me an example of someone like this?
