<span style='color:red'>Member Of The Month</span>

<span style='color:darkred'>Member Of The Month – the title itself is quite self-explanatory. Many of you are familiar with this type of event, for those that aren’t here is the general idea. Member Of The Month (I will refer to it as MOTM for short) is a way of rewarding those who have contributed alot to the game on a whole, that means both forum-wise and in game-wise. Seems simple?

You might now be wondering why I created this thread and why I didn’t just make the event thread right a way. *Well, what made me stop and think was when I was thinking about how the winner or a short-list of possible winners would be selected. Possibilities:

- A group of individuals are selected as a committee of a sort to select a short-list of 3-5 users every month, then they either vote amongst themselves or a public vote is created in which the community votes for one out of the 3-5 individuals.
- The community nominates individuals the individual with the most nominations/votes is the MOTM Winner.

These are only two I came up with, if you’ve any more ideas post - I’m welcoming all ideas and suggestions hence the reason why I created this thread.

The next thing was Prizes for the winners. I am willing to sponsor the winner of each month, as well as get them a userbar or tag. As far as colours go I will ask some of the staff to see if there is some way in which the winner could be awarded with a colour, (considering each week a hot shot winner is given a colour, this event is only on a monthly basis). Lastly, if a individual wins it more than once, I was thinking what can they be given? Suggestions on this would be appreciated.

The main reason I created this was for it to be a solution to the decline in forum activity, which many users expressed their concern about in the Forum Improvement PT. 2 thread (which can be found here) – users just don’t find the forum appealing, everyone wants to be rewarded and praised and so I hope this acts as an incentive for users to be more involved in the community atleast somewhat.

Suggestions and ideas on the whole concept of this event are wanted!</span>

Nice idea. Although i cant play due to some bugs/problems the idea seems quite interesting. Hope everything goes well. Well, just in my opinion, rewards in a way arent really that great in the long run. I guess its just part of the human dna structure.

looks like a certain individual's idea came to the SFO forum..

AND! Nice job thinking of new and diverse ways to attact people to the forum

well its a good idea but not too easy picking 1 member out of amount of people there is coming on this forum from day to day.. and I have come up with an idea that is different than the usual approach.

The first month the Staff choose the MOTM, BUT every month after that, the winners choose who should become the new MOTM. Why them? Because they know what it takes to win and be recognized as a great person.. anyways I support this and hope it prospers in the near future

As soon as I seen the thread title, I knew Blade was behind this...lol. Like I said elsewhere, as far as raising forum morale, it's always going to be a "must" in my book.

@ DM/Guitar/Merc:

Well I'm all for the staff choosing the MOTM each month, yet I don't want to suggest something then pile the work load off on them. It would be nice if it could get some 'official-ness' hopefully a Staff Member sees this and posts, if not I'll go bug a few. *

Also Guitar the only problem I see with allowing previous MOTM's to choose the 'new' ones is that their viewpoint could be a little biased. For example, I would be more enticed to vote for StreetFighterBlade ( ^^ ) than I would be for TMyApp because SFBlade is my irl friend..

Get the idea?

You disagree with monthly? How so..

Also I don't quite follow what you mean when you say; if colours are given out they would be temporary as in you could not guarantee a colour would be given every month? Or, that they could only be given for X amount of months?

And thanks for posting Orlando0 - I really wanted some Staff input on this idea.

Nah, I never said I disagree with monthly.

And when I mean temporary I mean, like you get the color for one month and then it's gone(Once again, like the weekly screenshot contest which gives you a color for 3 weeks.) and has to be re-earned.

I see, so could the colour be temporary whereby it lasts a month? As considering it is only a monthly contest unlike the Hot Shot which is weekly?

Also if I was allowed to offer this as a prize which Staff Member would I contact??

General Poll, or a selected group of individuals (say 7-ish), or the staff (if they are willing to part-take).

It will likely be a selected group, specialists of each section will be chosen.

e.g. People who hold much influence in R.I., the GFX Section, the Tournament Section and so forth.

Does it matter who votes? That can be taken care of once this 'event' takes place.

Tag can be sorted or some sort of userbar (like the one's system/Elena are making)

Custom Forum Titles; well I'll go bug a few staff members see if they'll agree to give a title as a prize.

Default Re: Member Of The Month

It's always good to create positive ideas for the forum like this but my main concerns are below:

(1) Criteria for choosing the MOTM – Exactly what is the criteria? Unlike the SFO Awards that had specific categories, I feel MOTM is vague. With no real categories or standards to judge forum members by, the MOTM would heavily, if not solely, on the judgment of those choosing the winners. (2) The person or persons who will choose the MOTM each month

– It would be essential to make sure the ‘committee’ has a good sense of judgment and are looking hard enough for worthy candidates; whether they are well known members or unknowns.

- If we’ll be using public nominations & voting, those participating would still need to be unbiased and fair in their judgment.

Right now, the idea of a MOTM contest/event sounds all well and good, but I’d like more information on what the exact process for choosing the winners will be.

One last point, on SFA and SFO UG, the idea works (worked) well because it was a “brand new” community. Even though most of the community was the original SFO community, people were starting off on an “equal footing” if you will.

Default Re: Member Of The Month

Firstly, I would like to thank you for posting Titanium. Now to address the concerns you pointed out;

- In regards to your first concern, the criteria for choosing the MOTM - my original plan of action was to brain storm a selection of categories with the selected panel/committee. This would be used as a judging scale of who would make the ‘short-list’ and be used as a measuring unit to measure members for the title. I cannot specify any specific categories as the committee (not yet chosen) haven’t agreed upon anything, yet an idea would be; judging possible candidates on how active they are, what events/tournaments they are organising, how they are having an input in the community ( e.g. SFO Cinema, Camera Club, GFX Section..), also in-game, do they offer to help individuals, are they polite to users... Remember this is but an idea, an example of possible categories. However, a problem which we will have, especially for the first few months is a standard to base winners on, this is something we cannot compile as we might set a standard too high where there are no possible candidates, or too low where we end up with double figured amounts of candidates thus standards will be judged based on past winners, which will only be developed in time. As with everything new, MOTM in this community will have teething problems yet I hope to have them all ironed out within 2-3 months.

- Now to address your second concern, the persons judging (..or the committee) - I’m trying to remain as unbiased as possible when it comes to selecting the committee, yet realise some will decline the position and so selecting a committee will have its flaws. The committee must overall be compiled of active users, both experienced and newer users, various specialist users (those mainly in-game based, those mainly forum based, Graphic-bound users, users involved with the Cinema/C.Club, and so forth). The committee will consist of 11 individuals, a short-list of possible candidates is still being worked on.

I know implementing this in the community will be hard, yet I’m willing to dedicate time and effort to make it work, and with that I hope this at least, somewhat, eases your concerns Titanium.

Default Re: Member Of The Month

Forum titles is what ever I guess. I think it be cooler if these members got "Content Testing" as a prize; meaning the "Members of the Month" would be allowed to test SFO Content on the next major update BEFORE the actual release date.

There are about 3-4 major updates per year, so let's say the Member of The Month of March, April and May would be allowed to test the next major update, then June, July, and August test the other major update.

A ton of other games do it, why not SFO?
