Is it time to elect new Forum Contributors?
The position of Forum Contributor was started years ago, before I joined the forum. Its purpose was to honor those members who went above and beyond to post jigs and projects, create tutorials, and answer members questions on how to do something. I am not aware if there was any sort of time span which was intended for the position to be active before the honor was to be passed on but it was meant to pass on eventually.
It has been a few years since Oliver (Gaffboat) and Stick (Stick486) were elected and they have served the position well. They have certainly done honor to the title. So the question being put to the members is whether it is time for a new election or should we keep the status quo. If replaced, Stick and Oliver would become Retired Contributors which is still obviously an honor. And I doubt that becoming Retired Contributors will mean that they will stop doing what earned them the titles in the first place.
So it's time for discussion on this and if it looks like a poll is needed we'll start one. If it is decided that it is time to share the honor then a period will take place for nominations and then a period for voting. Thanks in advance from the Moderator team.
Someone I consider a master woodworker once told me that a master woodworker is not someone who never makes mistakes. He is someone who is able to cover them up so that no one can tell.
