Member of the Month Nomination Thread December 2016 The X Avenue Battledome receives the contribution of hundreds of threads and thousands of posts every month, all from an immeasurable number of members that we've affectionately come to know as the "Battledome community". It's something we are ever grateful for, and we hope everyone continues on with their willingness to share! But each month, we'd like to take the opportunity to try and recognize one poster of upstanding quality, to pay tribute to their works, and to forever immortalize them in our section's X. This is the basis for our prize: the X Avenue Battledome's Member of the Month award. And it's up to you, the community, to help decide who wins. For reference, a Battledome Member of the Month is a poster who: 1. Fosters healthy discussion and constructive debate. 2. Posts courteously and consistently, with wisdom and reasoning. 3. Is helpful, friendly and encouraging to other members, especially new ones! 4. Always abides by the rules of the forum as well as the rules of the section. 5. In general, is a good role model for other posters of the X.Shortly around the 20th of each month, a discussion thread will be opened where members may submit their selections for the upcoming award. This nomination period will remain open until midnight on the first day of the following month, after which the nominees will be gathered and sorted into an official shortlist by X staff. Beginning with the October 2016 MOTM nominations, we are implementing an upper limit of six on the number of members you may nominate. If you nominate more than six people, only the first six listed will be considered. Following this, a voting thread will be opened where the next Member of the Month will be decided by the community via a public vote. Voting is to remain open for exactly seven days, and will end with the votes being tallied, and the winner being announced. The prize will be the choice of one of the following for a month's duration: � HTML usertitle (bold, coloured, marquee, image, etc.) � Sparkling username � 175x250 avatar Please note that "veto requests" can be submitted to moderators via private messages. A veto request is where regular members can appeal to have certain nominee/s be disqualified and not be included in the voting list. A veto request should be based on objective examples (and those examples must be linked in the private message) which include, but may not be limited to: A certain nominee has made trolling, baiting, or flaming threads or posts during the month. A certain nominee was banned during the month in question or during the voting period. Remember that the Naruto Battledome moderators will still carefully review the list of nominees too, along with the veto nominations. If you have any further questions, feel free to private message a section moderator, such as Kai, Daenerys Stormborn, Atlantic Storm, or Cordelia. Happy holidays to all!
