Website Of The Month


I've been thinking about this for some time and it seems feasible - there are enough people who would be willing to take part in this as this is a web hosting site, yet we have enough people willing to do SIG OF THE WEEK.

Requirements

  • People willing to enter the competition (
5 minimum - we have 128 people hosted who's last post was less than 1 month ago - that's 3.90% of everyone required)
Someone to organise it all (that's me) and someone to fill in for the organiser when he is unavailable
Someone to create the "website of the month [December 2006]" userbar
A small prize, which I will send and contribute the most part towards
Own forum? Not that necessary, it could be done otherwise
How It Would Be Done

On the 10th of every month, the host would create a new topic for people willing to nominate their own site. The potential nominees would post something like this:

I would like to enter the competition, here is my site:

Annex
The Xisto community building project

http://forums.xisto.com/no_longer_exists/


They would send in a number of credits to donate to the competition (no less than 3).

After 7 days, nominations close and the host reviews all the sites, check the donations had actually been given etc.

From the 20th to the 27th, voting would take place. All the nominated sites would be organised in to a poll and in the topic all the site details specified would be placed. The topic will be timed to close exactly on the midnight of the 27th.

Between the 27th and the end of the month, the winner would be awarded his prizes and everyone would prepare themselves for next month!

You like the idea? Any questions?

I like the idea. I suggest we host it like we would the Xisto awards of the year. Members would nominate who they thought had the best site, and then people would donate credits to a pool account(yours) that would be distributed to the top 3 sites.

Thank you for your feedback. Do I have anyone else in favour of the idea? I could start it tomorrow...

I'll begin the competition next month rather than today so as not to interfere too much with Plenoptic's awards; however, I'll announce it today seeing as nominations are over (for Plenoptic's awards). I take it if anything had any major objections, they would've said so.
