Title: 2018 Member of the Year - Ralph Thomann (Shanxi)
Post by: Joe Sermarini on February 06, 2019, 08:12:11 am
I am pleased to announce that we have honored Nicholas Molinari (Molinari), our Tribunus Plebis 2015, as our newest Tribunus Plebis Perpetuus. Thanks Nick for sharing your expertise in 3942 posts since you joined in 2006, thanks for sharing your gallery of 460 coins, thanks for your superb book and website on man-faced bulls, and for the Koinon journal. Our lifetime award is our members' highest expression of appreciation and admiration. Congratulations for your well deserved recognition.

Congratulations to Ralph Thomann (Shanxi) our Tribunus Plebis 2018! Thanks on behalf of Forum Ancient Coins and all our Classical Numismatics Discussion Board members for your outstanding and unique contributions to this community. Your shared knowledge and 1259 posts since you joined in 2014 have made the the discussion board a better place. Thanks also for sharing your gallery of 844 coins. Nearly all of your posts are helping members with authentication and identification. This is perhaps the most important assistance we provide to collectors here on the boards, and your posts have been an important part of that effort. This award is an expression of sincere appreciation and admiration from our members for the help and the education you have provided. Thanks!

On behalf of all our members, I would also like to thank all our nominees. The votes were very close and clearly deciding who to select was a difficult choice. Thank you, all of you, for generously sharing your time and expertise. You all deserve more appreciation and honor than I can express.

Many thanks to all of you. After my last place last year I certainly didn't expect this result. Congratulations to Molinari, who deserved to be promoted to Tribunus Plebis Perpetuus aka "Coin Olympus", and also to all the other nominees. You were all so good, and the result is the probably tightest vote ever. 28,28,26,26 and 26 votes for the first five.  Incredible.
