    Ladies and Gentlemen, there is one piece of business, from 2018, which remains unfinished. It is (past) time for us to select the Audiokarma Member Of The Year, for 2018.

    This member should represent the very best of what AK has grown to become.....it could be a good friend, someone who has helped the membership to a great degree, someone who made you laugh, or just someone who you really feel is an unsung hero. I can't speak for others, but, having been named Member of the Year, in 2005, along side the legendary EchoWars, I have to say that I am touched by this honour. The plaque hangs in my office, where I can see it.

    Roster of past Members of the Year:

    2003 EchoWars
    2004 EchoWars
    2005 EchoWars and luvvinvinyl
    2006 merrylander
    2007 jaymanaa
    2008 markthefixer
    2009 fotno
    2010 Zilch
    2011 Fisherdude
    2012 JohnVF and Rome
    2013 Buglegirl
    2014 Mike Gibson
    2015 4-2-7
    2016 HarmanKardon
    2017 Kent Teffeteller

    You can cast your vote for the member of your choice as AK Member of the Year, by sending an email to luvvinvinyl@audiokarma.org, with MEMBER OF THE YEAR 2018 as the subject. Please include your AK username, the name of the person for whom you are voting, and, if you like, a few words about why you chose as you did. Any member in good standing may vote. I will tally up the votes, and the person receiving the most votes will be declared the winner. Voting will close at 11:59 p.m. EST, Monday, February 25th, 2019.

    Please exclude Admins from the selection process. Any other member, in good standing, including all the Moderation staff, is eligible to win.

    Speaking from personal experience, this is a very important part of Audiokarma, and for those so honoured. Please participate in this process. Email me your vote to luvvinvinyl@audiokarma.org. Thanks.

    NOTE: PLEASE DO NOT NOMINATE ANY OF OUR SEVERAL RECENTLY-DEPARTED MEMBERS. WHILE WE ALL MISS THEM, LET'S HONOUR OUR BEST, WHILE THEY CAN ENJOY IT. THANK YOU.

    p.s. A couple of words of clarification, based on conversation from past elections. This process is your vote. Send in the name of the person you feel most deserves this honour, and it will be counted, along with all the others. The person with the most votes will be declared the winner.

    Second, PLEASE email your vote. luvvinvinyl@audiokarma.org is the address to use, even if you have another one for me.

    Thanks, and remember, VOTE EARLY, but just ONCE.

    I have a few members in mind for this but that's the hard part, the decision.

    When I see what they do around here and how they participate I wonder how they have never became MOTY already. I know they have made the nomination list but they just never got that final push over the line.

    BTW
    When I became MOTY it was a honor I cherished and still do, although I was quite shocked the day Ernie posted it. I was only active on the site a couple of years so it shows anyone can become MOTY if your effecting people in the right way.

    I voted, and feel better about THIS vote than others I've made outside this arena.

    as Forrest Gump might say "....and that's all I have to say about thaa-ut."

    Voted.

    A very difficult choice, as there are a number of fine people here that I wanted to vote for, it's frustrating to have to narrow it down to only one because no matter which way I go I feel like I let someone else that I admire down.

    Cheers,
    James

    To all those who have already voted, thanks for the support. I'm seeing a few names which are new to the list, both as voters, and as nominees.
    If you haven't voted yet, please give some thought, and send me your choice. I'd like to have a record number of votes, this year.
    C'mon, people. Make me work!
