    I voted this year....but a suggestion I might have for next year is to not make staff members eligible.

    We let our membership choose who they nominated, Celtic Crippler and Brother John have done a lot to keep thi site going this year and deserve to be in the list, as do the other 3 nominees.

    I understand Rob, I was just offering something I thought could help generate more activity from others. It would be like an instructor running a martial arts school winning student of the month in my eyes. "employees" or "staff" are supposed to contribute. I'm not trying to ruffle feathers.

    That's me....what I lack in pure kenpo skill I make up for with CRAZY! LOL

    It wouldn't hurt my feelings not being eligable because I'm a staff member. Just my 0.02 for next year.

    I had a very tough time choosing. Maybe that's why more people haven't voted. I have had almost everyone on that list talk with me in private and answer my questions and I felt very greatful for all the help I have recieved here.

    So THANK YOU to everyone, and even if you don't "win" know that you still are touching live's and making the kenpo world a little bit better.

    I was staff until just recently, so I feel the same way.

    (I've had some personal difficulties the last few months which has kept me from being here as much.)

    We really had some awesome people nominated this year and it is a hard decision, but hard decisions are usually the best decisions.

    Good for you Bob. I also believe moderators should not be a part of the contest.

    I am also curious to why a "Pleasing personality" contest is even necessary.

    What does it have to contribute to Kenpo and the learning of Kenpo?

    Help me out.
