Nominations For September 2014 DIYer of the Month




We are opening nominations for our Spetember 2014 DIYer of the Month today!

As you can see, we have made some changes in the program.

The DIYer of the Month will receive the following as prizes to receiving this prestigious award:
  • $350 eGift Card
  • Featured in our monthly newsletter
  • A custom badge
  • Username & Picture on our DIYer of the Month page

The best thing about this community is the wisdom, experience, and support shared. Without this camaraderie and mentorship there would be no purpose to DIYChatroom. The DIYer of the Month program gives you the opportunity to say, “Thank You!” to your fellow members of DIYChatroom who have helped you make the most out of your projects!

With that said, who is the first DIYChatroom member that comes to mind whom you respect, appreciate, and whose skills shine in this DIY community? That’s who you should nominate.

Nominations will be accepted until September 8, 2014 after which we will total up the count to determine the top 5 member nominations. Then we’ll open up the official voting poll to all DIY Chatroom members.

To Qualify:

- Nominees must have a minimum of 100 posts in the community.

- Nominees must be willing to provide a profile picture (or a picture of a project) and a unique biography. Failing to provide these in a timely manner will disqualify the nomination so you may want to start working on your stories now, just in case! (It can just be a story about being a DIYer!)

-You may not nominate yourself.

Rules:

- You can only win DIYer of the Month one time per year.

- Each member can only nominate ONE DIYChatroom member per voting cycle.

- You are welcome to nominate any member. However, we, the DIYChatroom Staff, reserve the right to screen all nominees.

- As members of the community, moderators are also eligible for nomination.

Additional Notes:

- Nominations are posted publicly here. This is your DIYer of the Month, for you, by you. Having this process public helps everyone see that the nominations are chosen by the community.

- However, voting is anonymous. Each member gets only ONE vote, but no one can see who voted for whom. You can only see how many votes each nominee receives.

Let the nominations begin!

I nominate OhMike, Mike is always right there when someone needs advice in many operations of DIY. He is very patient when someone doesn't understand the instructions and he has always been spot on with his advice. Not to mention that he is one heck of a good guy with a big heart.

This thread (and its creator) comes to us from Germany and has been going on for about six years with regular attendance and contributions to not only this/his thread but others. The content is exceptional with a rare look inside of what goes on in a project from a foreign country. The originator is also a U.S. Military veteran serving overseas and deserves a serious look-see.

Just to clarify, the changes in the program mean that we no longer need to choose a specific project. I have recorded your nominations as: shumakerscott
http://www.diychatroom.com/members/shumakerscott-17006/

Excellent choice!

I must not be explaining this correctly. The program has changed. We are not nominating a PROJECT. We are nominating a MEMBER.

Isn't nominating a particular thread also nominating the threads creator? What's so difficult about understanding that.

If one wants to nominate an individual that doesn't routinely have an ongoing thread (i.e. Mike) so be it.

No, you explained it right. I'm just a little dense sometimes.

Thanks!

I just wanted to make sure everyone understood they don't have to choose a specific project.

A lot of choices, but I am going with Joecaption. He usually is one of the first to respond to a question, and has been helpful to everyone with the knowledge and information he gives.

By DIYer do you also mean the pros that contribute to the site? I see that OhMike is already nominated so I nominate Bud Cline.

BTW who won in August?
