We should start a member of the year type deal. We could have a bunch of diff catergoies like
Most impressive new member
Most active non spamming member
Most funny member
Greatest topic starter
Things along those lines, we could do it for this year and have the same catergoies in the member of the month and at the end of the year on January 2nd or so we reliease the details.
We could create a committe, this committe all would have to be active throughout the year and have enough knowledge and be able to select poeple. Example we can't have some new guy in the forum telling us what happened in the last year. But it could be like a big awards thing, we could really turn it into somthing nice, 1000ad.net did this, and it was actually pretty succesful they had a bunch of different catergoies then the best one you can get it "Most popular person" I won that twice
