Hi guys,

As 2015 draws to a close, we thought it was time to offer you all the chance to vote for your DX member of the year :yahoo: We're allowing multiple nominations (three per member) as we realise that different members have different skill sets.
This could mean a member has helped you out improving your photography. A member has provided you with expert knowledge in the custom models forums. Helped you out snagging your holy grail, or they're a good all round knowledge base.



Fell free to nominate whoever you like. Nominations will close on the 31st December & voting will start the week after.
Thanks

:occasion14:

F**k you Photobucket.

I'd like to nominate the following:
- Mizen for starting from scratch and going on to be a member with some excellent contributions in his Le Mans collection thread, and I especially love following his amateur racing career.
- Koen (Stirling_Moss) for continuing to produce jaw-dropping photographs.
- Wes (StratosWRC) for having constant updates and reviews of his latest adds. And of course his collection taste is very similar to mine :nice:

I could think of several but I can do three easy off the top of my head.

Craig for all he does and recently he offered to help me get a model from overseas, Thanks Craig, maybe next time! :nice:

Matt (Autobahn), sold me a grail this year, Elite Scuddy in blue, and I have always enjoyed his camaraderie here, even if he is a Cardinals fan!

Preisman(Jon) for setting up the MOTY threads and sharing tips on photograpy. Plus all three of these gentleman are mods/admins, so well done chaps!

Josh is right, this is a tough call!.. Craig, you've also helped me out  on some things this year and some really good people hear that I love to chat with often as well, but I will give my three nominations to:

Schuifelhoofd (Sven) for first choice based on the fact that he's really been a BIG part of integrating me into the Belgian/Dutch model car scene and has taken the time to actually come by and visit with possibly helping me to create storage racks for my models, not to mention that I often attend model car events with him here in BE  as well as in NL. I also appreciate he and his families friendship and kindness towards me and mine. So, Sven's my first choice.

MairandEddy (Ed) is my second choice and only because Sven has been in my life to more physical extent. Why I nominate Ed is, because he's ALWAYS there!!! Sometimes even beyond model cars Ed will lend and ear to chat and hear as well as share in being a true "Mate"! A side from being an Well rounded good guy towards me and in general, Ed also will take the time to help you with a problem being it 3:00am if he's there or when you just need a friend to hear what you outside of collecting model cars!

AlexSZ(Alex) I nominate Alex as my third choice because he's also one of the members that's always there to lend an ear or give good solid advice when you're in need. Also, I really connected very well with Alex this year as a friend for the fact that we have so much in common model car wise and real car wise too! I'm really glad that he's here on DX!

In the end, all three of these men are top notch fellas and great Members here on DX! I'm really and truly grateful that DX has connected me with such wonderful people in this hobby as well as outside of it! :eusa_clap:

So as I have always closed :occasion14: To them! :eusa_clap:

So many great members here, so many great collections, so many countries, so many kind people. For me, I dip in and out when I can, so to be honest I can't form a fair judgement.

But, because of what I notice when I do dip in...I have to go for mod mairanEddy for his absolutely positive encouragement he shows to everyone. It doesn't matter what you have bought - a £1 diecast at a car boot sale or a new £500 CMC - he enters into the spirit of things with 100% enthusiasm for your collection and this hobby. And that, I would say, is the absolute bedrock of this hobby; a mate that sees the good in what you collect and why you collect it, without judging, sneering or mocking based on diecast brand or price - and that's quite unique, I think.

Without his tremendous encouragement and support for us all and our collections, I think DX would be a much poorer place.

Good skills, boss :)

I would like to personally recommend Darren (Drivinghermad). Like Eddy, Darren always has positive comments to everyone's posts, regardless of how expensive or cheap the model may have been. They are always thoughtful posts too and it an awesome pleasure having him around the site :)

Just found this thread - thanks for tip off on the status update bar Craig.  Two for me:

Uzair - not just because he mentioned me (thanks!), but for the always interesting and very articulate commentary, having good taste, and asking me questions about my own race car I've no idea how to answer :)

Craig - as well as the admin role which i'm sure is a thankless task, he has been very helpful to me over PM - and still go grateful for his assistance in getting a reasonably priced 1994 le mans winner for me.
Aiming to collect all post-war Le Mans winners in scale 1:18. Even the gaps!
