I'll second Joe, for creating, financing, and continually enhancing, a great meeting point for ancient collectors.

I nominate Victor , for his outstanding knowledge of Constantine and family coinage.

I'll 2nd this nomination.  This individual appears to know everything about CTG and is constantly very helpful to all members.

Since I've already seconded Steve M, would somebody nominate BenB? By far, the most knowledgable in regards to all things Constantinian...

Two equally deserving members in very different ways:

Patricia / slokind, for the way she gives us coin collectors a context in ancient art and style,

and

Luigi / tacrolimus, who amazes me every time anew when he shakes a (correct!) attribution out of his sleeve for even the most mysterious and / or miserable Greek coins.

I am late getting started on our 2005 award....

Please submit your nomination before 24 December.  Only one nomination or one second per person.  All members nominated and seconded will be included in the poll which will begin on DEC 25th and end January 3rd.

I second Larry, his gallery is a great one too!  I nominate Robert_Brenchley.

Kevin  :)

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:

Kevin  :)
I already used my vote, but Robert has contributed a lot, will somebody second him?
I would if I could.

I already second pep because of his work for the website awards (Comitia Curiata), but would someone nominate Pscipio?
He is always very helpfull on the identification board and has a lot of patience with everybody.
Thanks,
Nico

This is a tough one. I post not very often but read the boards every day.
Everyone nominated so far is a wealth of information. I would like to nominate Howard Cole who also contributes alot to the board.

The Case for Curtis (Why your vote should go to Curtis Clay this year.)

Although Curtis is currently leading in the Forum Member of the Year voting,
I would like to implore all of those who have not yet cast their votes to
please vote for Curtis again this year.

The reason is very simple:  So somebody else can win next year!  =)

When Joe S. set this system up, he decreed that if any member was elected
Tribunus Plebis (Member of the Year) for two years, they would ascend to the
permanent status of (Tribunus Plebis Perpetuus) and no longer be eligible
for annual voting because they were effectively deified as a permanent Forum
boards "God" (or Goddess, should Pat very deservedly follow in Curtis'
footsteps two years hence...)

Therefore, if we elect Curtis again this year, we "get him out of the way"
so that all the rest of the fine Moderators and contributors of the Forum
Board can then have their turns in the spotlight.  =)  So please, cast your
vote now for Curtis, who has selflessly given countless hours of his time
and expertise to members of this forum for several years now, and
permanently ensconce him in the pantheon of coin gods where he certainly
deserves to be!  Vote now!  =)

Susan
