Afrikane has certainly been very generous, as has ASR.
Those 3 definitly take the cake...

After Jude of course.

MOT's should not be eligible, imo.

Jude, of course, should always get yearly kudos, almost without saying.

I think we need to decide a winner and actually reward them.

I will pledge to make the winner a custom headphone stand with his or her input.

What else can we come up with?

Who will volunteer to be the secretary here and keep track of everything, including votes?

It would be nice to have a brass nameplate to affix to the stand signifying Head-Fier of the year status.

How about making a poll instead?

And yeah, how about excluding the MOTs and moderators from this vote, as those are pretty obvious choices. Or we could have a separate poll for MOT of the year.

Patrick82 FTW!

My vote goes to John Grado..

john was the first president of a headphone company to say "hey lets build something speacil for these guys at headfi". he listened to ours opinions,views,read our posts,and made a product not only marketed towards us but sold to only us. plus he did this all while healping headfi along with Todd.

Ya, no kidding. He's also our most dedicated moderator. No offense to anyone else, guys (i.e., fellow mods), but you've got to admit it, Mike does the lion's share around here.

That sounds pretty cool. We should give it a little more time for people to put forward their nominaitons. Then create a new poll thread for the purpose of voting only (i.e., no comments allowed) to ensure that no biases enter into it.

Mostly becuase I'm under the impression that he is legally insane.

And anyone who has all this lying on the floor has got to be insane.

I agree.
I think that since I will be making a stand for the winner I should not be involved in the process anymore than necessary, as to insure no favortism.
Will someone step forward at the appropriate time to start the new voting thread?

I can handle the thread.. But how are you going to vote certain people for certain categories?? Multiple threads?
post #45 of 89
I don't think we have multiple categories? I would generally agree with no MoT's, and certainly not a "best MoT" category. Tyll went above and beyond his normal MoT status though in contributing hugely to the logistics of the national meet. The admin/mod question is also tough. Immtbiker is a strong frontrunner, and is a moderator. Same as Tyll, his contribution in the past year went well past his moderating duties, and thus he should be counted as a regular joe for the national meet planning. I don't see any reason not to include Jude, Mbriant, or any other outstanding contributor to this site in the running. Basically I guess, let's include any nomination and let the people decide. Perhaps we should at least throw in the requirement of a "second" to the nomination so as to cut down on the clutter.

So far our outstanding nominations are:
Afrikane
Patrick82
Immtbiker
Tyll
Jude
Mbriant

With one mention each, as I suggested let's require a second to be included in the voting. I included multiples who were named by the same person but let's cut down on that for the rest of the nomination process. Pick one from here out.

MarkL
imho
Jahn
Edwood
Tyrion
Toonie
sacdlover
mikhail
looser101
John Grado
BHD812

I guess I just became the secretary, oops.

Oops didn't mean to step on your toes Mr Baseball. I responded to you and forgot you were volunteering for the duties.
