    I think it is fine the way it is. If it ain't broke, don't fix it. The mods do an outstanding job here already. There doesn't need to be a contest for MODOTM.

    Like someone would actually look up each member to see how many posts they've posted before they could nominate someone? Come on, guys. These contests are already hard enough. If there are ties in MOTM, both win MOTM so that means you just have to have more ties.

    Billy, I can't think of a way to make it more fair because I find nothing wrong with it now. Like I can't find a way myself to ever win a picture competition. Some win and some lose and isn't that the way it is in any competition? I might win MOTM once a year but you might win POTM several times? It's just the way it is.

    Those who win MOTM, can't enter for the rest of that year to make it more fair to others. It's like GoldenBarb said, we're into month 7 and only 3 Mods have won. Looks plenty fair to me. The winners are picked by the entire membership remember. It's their choice.

    There's a good chance if no Mods were in the comps at all that someone else would still get the votes. I was knocked out in the Finals 4 months in a row by non-Mods. So being a Mod means beans in these comps.

    Well given that we are in month 7 of 12 and the mods have 3 wins out of say a hand full of you and the normal members have 4 out of 1000's i'd say the mods have good odds on winning.. I'd love to know how many mods and how many normal mebers have won MOTM since it was started and if a newbie ever won or got to the final (by newbie i mean been here less than a year)

    Mods won 4 times in 2007. I can't go back into 2006 because the comps didn't start until August of that year. BTW.......in Sept of 2006, I won MOTM after being here one month and I was no Mod then. In fact, the 5 months of that year that we had comps, No Mods won other than William.

    The whole listing is in the Winners Circle .......the stickie in Comps.

    The mods carry alot of weight around here and I think thats fine as long as you all stay in check,so far you have and I think you all do a great job.However,because of the general high regard mods seem to be in they seem to get alot of extra consideration when it comes to motm votes.Billys idea is a good one with one exception.Mods should be excluded from all competitions because of there position.it is already such a prestigious position to be in as it is,the rank should be all the reward that is neccesary.
