    SLIM... I think that might be something the mods would take into consideration... these guys arent' dictators.. make your opinion heard. they're more than willing to listen. I might even suggest sending a pm to one of them, with a good hearted suggestion.

    these guys want whats best for the site. being quiet and saying nothing, is a far worse crime than stating your opinion for the mods consideration.

    personally, I think I woudl tend to agree with you... maybe have the voting go the last week of the regular season, and if the phins will be in the playoffs... extend the voting until the first round of the playoffs...

    Its the offseason for us, if the dolphins were in the playoffs, we'd hold these off until after the superbowl. but it's meant to coincide with the awards shows like the Oscars, etc, except rather than the staff picking the winners, we allow the members to pick their own winners. To keep the offseason interesting and yes, to keep membership active, we have several events we usually try to do on a yearly basis, and yes... its all volunteer based, nublar puts a lot of work into these. We also have a finheaven march madness, and in past years we've had a finheaven survivor. we don't do these things to capture the excitement of the season, we do these things to keep things going and provide some entertainment when the season is over.

For example, on a Canes board the other day I responded to a lengthy attack on the USC campus and surrounding area by detailing what it's actually like as a student there. Almost immediately the thread was bombarded with posters taunting me by saying they left negative reputation. Well bully for them. I don't even know what that means, other than apparently I wasn't supposed to like it. Meanwhile, if I cared what people thought then around here I wouldn't say I like the Jets and I hated the Marino era. I do like the Jets and I did hate the Marino era.

    I'm a VP member here but almost never post there, or even venture into the forum. That might be a poor decision but it was spurred by my early visits to the place, after I apparently was voted in. One poster after another in there was having a jolly time deriding this forum, and specific members. The popular term for this forum was, "The Zoo," as in...I just visited The Zoo and now I need to get back here and take a needed bath. That type of snobby thing. To be fair, I don't know if that attitude persists but it was enough to turn me off immediately. It reminded me of Las Vegas sportsbooks when a big bettor is approached by an everyday guy, asking for a bit of advice, and the whale acts as if he's been wronged if they approach within 10 feet of him. I always have more fun nearby the $5 parlay crowd and that holds true here.

    I expected to participate in the voting process here for the first time this year but decided against it. The draft forum, for example, was simply too tough to call. Other forums I had no idea. Some categories it appeared were almost written for certain posters to win, while other logical categories were absent.

    Voting at this time of the year probably lends itself to lower numbers. Hold it in the heart of the season and I'm sure the participation would be markedly improved.
    What categories would you add? Genuinely interested. We usually try think of new categories and new suggestions would be welcome.

    How about "Best Poster named 'TheWalrus'"?

    I've been here since 2008 and this is the first year I've even noticed the awards and now that I noticed them there was really only one I felt qualified to vote in.

    I would suggest mods just give most of the awards and do something fun on the main page for the best overall poster like a head to head knock out type tournament.

    Bro I think this is March Madness that Bill was referring to in an earlier post.
