FORVM 2006 Member of the Year Nominations
« on: December 23, 2006, 11:50:21 am »
Please nominate your selection for our 2006 Member of the Year, who will be awarded the title Tribunus Plebis (male) or Tribuna Plebis (female).   Nominations will close on 4 January.  (Yes, we are late again this year.)

The Member of the Year is determined by a poll of FORVM members held each December.  To be eligible, the member must have been a member the entire year, be one of the top 50 posters, and either hold one or more of the other titles or serve as a moderator.  Only one Tribunus or Tribuna Plebis will be selected each year.  A member that is elected twice will be designated Tribunus Plebis Perpetuus (male) or Tribuna Plebis Perpetua (female) and will be excluded from future election because it is unnecessary.   When a Tribunus Plebis Perpetuus (male) or Tribuna Plebis Perpetua (female) is selected, the member with the second highest number of votes will be selected as member of the year and awarded the title Tribunus Plebis (male) or Tribuna Plebis (female).

Please only make one nomination or second and only nominate or second the one person you intend to vote for. 

Curtis Clay is has already been awarded the title Tribunus Plebis Perpetuus for his selection as member of the year twice.   He is no longer eligible for nomination since he is a Tribunus Plebis for life!

Hello All,
Jochen has been a member that you can count on for help with an attribution or to stimulate an interesting dialouge.  He always gives freely of his time and frankly I have found him to be a person that can be counted upon.

This community is already great, individuals such as Jochen; make this a much better place.

It is for the reasons listed above and for the many more I have neglected (or forgotten) to list, that I nominate Jochen for Tribunus Plebis.
Regards,
Kelly

I have been thinking of this all year, but among so many worthy contributors, I always come back to tacrolimus , Luigi.  He makes the identifications that most of the rest of us just wonder about and always without fanfare but with exact references.

I had both Jochen and tacrolimus in mind. It is a tough call but I would like to act as a second for tacrolimus.

I would like to nominate PEP ( kevin) for all the hard work he has done in regards to the web site awards as well as the other projects he has gotten involved with. He is a key member of Forum and one of the people who makes it work and makes it a pleasure to be here.

I vote for Tacrolimus! Luigi's attributions sometimes are so astonishing that it proofs the old word: You have it or you have it not! You must have it because you can't learn it!

Best regards

As Luigi is already nominated, I'd like to nominate Pat/slokind for always being friendly and helpul, and for her innumerable educating postings.

I would like to second Pat.  It is indeed a hard choice, because there are a number of helpful and knowledgeable people round here, but I have learned more from Pat than anyone else in the last year, both from posts here and from private messages.  Not always about the coins themselves, but about their artistic and cultural context and background.  I always read Pat's posts.  I feel as though I am getting, free, an education that others have to pay for.

I feel I must say that Pep (Kevin) has put in an absolutely immense amount of work chairing the Awards Committee and without him it would likely have fallen apart.

this is the best message board, with many great people on it. As a relative newcomer, I know I appreciate civility and genuinely helpful, educational replies. Thinking of that, I think Curtis Caly is great. I know he can't win again. So then equally helpful and always interesting - slokind.  Joe

I think Pat is right. I'm always happy to take my RIC from the shelf and look up a coin, or even my Price, but that's not really hard. Luigi's the man who knows the most obscure Greek bronzes that puzzle everyone else.

While I have not been around a great deal lately and only follow some threads (so I do not know who overall contributed most over the past year), I would still like to second (third, fourth...) the nomination of Patricia/slokind. Her vast knowledge of, among other things, the art of the ancient world certainly adds a dimension to many discussions, a dimension lacking before she joined the Forum.

Since Pat already got the honour, I also nominate Jochen. Luigi, Rupert, and Lars are next, in no particular order.

   It is difficult to choose between all of nominees, but by the narrowest of margins I think that Luigi should be honored this time.
