    I did this before when i was drunk and also i understood that we cant say that one is better then other, we all together make this community great, and we are like family.

    We cant say you are better then him and you are worse.

    Without all of BHW community and all members here, we wouldnt be greatest forum in internet history.

    I agree with ferma. We have lots of great, savvy members on BHW
    who contribute in their own way. An award for the best this or the
    best that would only cause animosity and tend to polarize the BHW
    community.

    In December of 2008 when I was still a noob, a poll was created and
    I was voted "Black Hatter of the Year". That justifiably pissed off a lot
    of members who were much more experienced than I was at the time
    and who deserved recognition much more than me.

    Nice thought in theory, but in practice it is not a good idea IMHO.
    It would just turn out to be a popularity contest. Sadly, some fine
    members who contribute a lot on BHW would likely be overlooked
    simply because they may not be as popular as someone else, and
    ultimately, that would be an injustice to them.

    Cheers! - "Wiz"

    I think that determining this would be more difficult than it seems - as far as I know, there are over 200k registered members on BHW with probably 10% of that "active" members... What would we base the criteria for the "award"? Would BHW member status be something to take into consideration (e.g Donors, Noobs, Senior members, etc)?

    If content in member's posts was to be a consideration, then an uber programmer who knows a fair bit about algorithms (I never took the algo papers while studying) could create a program to take in posts, rep, thanks, iTrader, posts per day as input (from each member), then output each "active" member in order (am not sure what criteria would be most important - rep, iTrader, posts per day, etc). I'm sure the super mod on here could run a database query to determine this - but if the quality of posts is to be taken into consideration, then a suitable algorithm would need to be devised...

    As for the awards, there are tons out there that could be given. Here are a few ideas of my own:

    Free Jr VIP for 1 month
    Free Donor for 1 month
    Access to a BH VPS w/ xrumer/SB/GSA/NHS etc for 3 months
    Free advertising for a month
    Free services from the Buy Sell thread (am not sure if this would work though, or how)

    I would say that the ultimate winner could get one or two of the above, and also get some sort of mod position on BHW - since they would have showed that they "have what it takes". Their could be minor placings and prizes as appropriate.

    I am not sure if this would take off, but I enjoyed exercising my brain while thinking of the ideas :).
