If you want to be noticed, do something to get noticed!  :D

It's not a popularity contest, it's a referendum on the most visible supporters of the site.

There are only so many ACTUAL ACTIVE members on the forum...plus the fact that a NotW cannot be named twice. we will get everyone...it may just be that they get NotW down the line. OK so the mods have pretty much almost all been listed. that means that now that the mods have been named, from now on, there are no more mods to name, so only nonmods are going to be named. patience. :D SOMEONE who gets named MUST EVENTUALLY know someone from "some obscure stretch of the forum" who is awesome, and nominate that person. if ALL the major contributors are named now, then what?

no more mods to name

Ftiafpi, Étienne, Skxawng, Braniac etc. Anyway, the mods have got a lot of the nominations (arguably more than we deserve :D).

I agree that the mods deserve the nominations more than we do. But my perspective of NotW has changed. As I understand it, NotW is only a way to get to know the community better and not a way to show recognition to the communities best contributors. So I'm no longer proposing a change to NotW butrather suggesting we add another "otW" to run along side NotW that is meant to show recognition. We could have a new banner and everything.

Is my interpretation of NotW correct?

I shouldn't have used the phrase "popularity contest" because it skewed what I meant by supporters... What I was trying to say is that if a person is not very visible on the forums, the chances they will be picked as a NotW are diminished. Supporting the forum by being active makes you more visible.

And in reality, perhaps NotW is a form of popularity contest, and in a good way. My apologies for muddying the waters here...  :(

Many older members have left and some of the newer members have been getting nods. 

I think several members on this forum has striven pretty heavily to not build elitist cabals of finite subsets of the membership, but there is always someone who thinks we should on the other end of the spectrum.  Also being noticed is not enough, there should be a justification for the award, so that there is merit involved.

Otherwise, it is nothing more than a popularity contest, and IMO irrelevant without making arbitrary accounts for James Cameron and Paul Frommer so that we can say if they logged on, they should have already been awarded honorarily.

it is just a matter of time. again: how many ACTIVE people are even still here? everyone who contributes or whatever WILL see a spot here, and then everyone else will too. I challenge the nexe NotW: avoid bias by doing this: you can see who contributed a LOT to the forum by going to the page where you can see the sheer post count of  and time last posted of people. clearly, the active people with highest post count devote MUCH of their time to this forum/community and therefore deserve to be NotW. ALSO: check out the Projects board. Anyone who is actively devoting their time also should get a mention. so that just about does it for seeing the top contributors of the forum. THE OTHER SIDE: I'm also pretty sure that there are some really interesting individuals who do NOT post but devote MUCH of their time reading threads. this IMO is still considered active, just without participation. again, these types of people are much harder to spot because of their post count being so low. so really, you have to know this person in order to nominate them. but im sure that if you did, they would have interesting things to say. I believe that at the end of the day, the ACTUAL intended prupose of this was/is to learn more about members of the community. It wasnt to instigate a sense of elitism.

That is quite possible.  I locked that thread yesterday because the week was over, but I never checked to see if questions were answered.  I'll reopen the thread for a few more hours so the T/F answers can be revealed...

Kaltxì ayngaru

Leskxawnga säfpìl ta eltu leskxawng  :P

As i said in the Scorpy's RotW topic, we have NotW because lot of people love Na'vi culture, forest, animals, etc...

But...

I think some people love the RDA' Society, the Mechanical Kelutral of Humans
i suggest a RDA's Section like NotW

The RotW 

I think these topics will be more "roleplay" than the NotW's topic, because you must be mad if you love the Human way of life on Earth (in the movie)  :P ;D

I am in! Surely there must be some that loves the RDA and I think RotW would not be too. We must do both otherwise or this would not be paritary.  ;) ;)

we must be like Eywa and not take part.
