Hi all,

In line with all of the rest of the year voting we wanted to also choose a member of DX that has consistently shown themselves to be an outstanding member of our forum and recognize them for member of the year. It could be anyone that shares their knowledge, kindness, humor, opinions etc. which make your time here a more pleasant experience and gives DX a great community spirit. There's no timeframe for nominations so even new members can be nominated!

This was very hard to select just one great member but my nomination for Member of the Year goes to Craig T.,

Craig is ALWAYS willing to share his knowledge and insight. I can think of quite a few posts where he helped members make a better informed purchasing decision. He's quick to welcome new members and consistently exhibits a great maturity. He also recently stepped up to be a moderator and help DX continue to run smoothly. He's my choice for MOTY.

Let's try to get a good number of members nominated so that Craig doesn't run away with it :nice:  :giggle:

Any admin/staff should get the nomination. They have to put up with a lot of crap. Together they all make this place great to be part of. But, if I had to nominate just one it would be Eddy.

Mairandeddy (Eddy).

He moderates the sh!t out of this place. No matter what he is dealing with (crazy members, new threads, games, and all the dark sides of DX) he always deals with them with the best of spirits. He always seems very calm and upbeat about everything.

Hahaha!  That's very kind of you Jon, I'm glad I give that impression, but the metaphor of a swan gliding gracefully but paddling like hell below the waterline springs to mind!!


Like you said, moderating certainly has its 'ups and downs' and  consequently i'd like to nominate Alex (SoFL) - not just for sharing his extensive knowledge and experience of the hobby in assisting any members that seek advice, but for stepping up to the mark when asked, and moderating to the max ever since!! :twocents:

@ Big Dave and Gwaz....Aw Shucks!!   :occasion14:

   And Dave i second your nomination without hesitation!   :wavetowel2:

Eddy defines what it means to be a DXer. His spirit, kindness, and impartiality towards everyone here has helped to cultivate an authentic sense of community and belonging. I tip my hat to him and also second the nomination.  :occasion14:

really difficult to chose, because the calibre here is so high.

with no offense to the many other excellent members here, I have to go for Eddy, because his enthusiasm for the hobby shines through; whether it's welcoming new members, applauding a purchase, helping newbies around the site, giving advice on how to upload a pic or an image, or adding humour or calm logic to a heated debate that's going off the rails a wee bit...he's the man!  :hope:

I think both Eddy and Craig deserve it. They're both ever present in this forum and always helpful.

If we were to vote for New Member of the Year then Bigdave would definitely be my choice.  :clap:
