As I am unable to nominate more than one person, I have chosen to nominate Jochen. He has been a great asset to the discussion board at large and furthermore has been of much help to individual members both publicly in his posts and privately in his PM's.

Alex.

A very difficult question since there are a lot of great people on FORVM, but if I have to make a choice, I'd like to nominate slokind/Patricia. She is always friendly and helpful, no matter how inexperienced people are and her knowledge is just immens. For a young collector like me (and I'm sure for many others as well), the possibility to converse with here is a real honour. Too, I'd like to nominate Curtis - I'm sure I don't have to explain his nomination anymore.

Your right this is difficult because we do have a lot of great members. I would like to nominate Kevin ( PEP) for the incredible work he does for the awards, he is with out a doubt one of the hardest workers on the board, he really makes a difference.

I would find this really difficult.  Both Pat and Curtis are experts in the fields I am interested in (as well as others) and both have been more than helpful - through PM's & other correspondence.  Jochen and Pscipio are always quick of the mark in attribution help, to new and experienced alike (note how I didn't say old :).  There are unsung heros like *Alex, J. Victoria, Lawrence Woolslayer and others who have been slaving away on the Numiswiki project - behind the scenes, so to speak.  There are , of course, many others who I have noticed giving excellent contributions, but the above are the ones, that have caught my eye.

I think I'll pick *Alex, for the reason that alot of effort has probably gone nu-noticed by the "masses"  (Bread & games etc.)  Hopefully someone will pick the others I've named

All the best

I think after Curtis Clay, award winner of the last year, it is Patricia Lawrence who deserves this award most. It is always a pleasure to read her profound comments which add a new dimension to our hobby often going vast beyond the coin on its own.

Best regards

Don't forget Steve Minnoch!  He has more breadth than I have and has helped me repeatedly.  I also agree with all the other nominations.

They are all deserving.  To make it official, I'll second the nomination of slokind.

I know I'll have a difficult time once it's time for the actual vote, though,
there are several members that deserve this honour.

Without him and Steve Minnoch, a lot of the submitted Greek and Roman provincial coins would never be identified.

CAMPAIGN SPEACH............

Vote for me and I promise:

1. Lower taxes
2. Better coins for less money
3. Free Coins from Forum

Since I probably can't follow-up on any of my campaign promises (this is normal for politicians), I guess I'll vote for Pat L.

Just look at your Magistratus Optima Lege misreading the instructions, "one nomination OR one second per person" ::)  Is someone else willing to second Robert a second time to make it official :tongue:
