Tribute of the Month and User of the Month - February 2017

FrostyFire February 5, 2017 User blog:FrostyFire

Round II Voting. 

Welcome everyone to the revival of "Tribute of the Month" and "User of the Month"

"Tribute of the Month" (TOTM) was a concept originally created by AnnaJason and Charlie; restarted by Pippy and Tyler; and then restarted again by Nick. This title is dedicated to exceptional tributes of active users, and will be determined by the community. These winning tributes will receive a badge on the top of their page. 

"User of the Month" (UOTM) was a concept originally created by Tyler, and restarted by Nick. This title is dedicated to exceptional users who have helped make our community a better place. Similar to TOTM, this winner will be determined by public vote. These winning users will receive a badge on their profile.

Schedule & Explanation - TOTM

Round I

Nomination Period: February 5th to February 12th (12:00 EST)

During the first round, users have the opportunity to nominate up to three tributes they believe deserve the title "Tribute of the Month." You may nominate one of your own tributes, but if you do, you must nominate two other tributes created by another user. (Note: You don't need to nominate three tributes, unless you nominate one of your own tributes)  

Voting for this round will take place in the comment section, and will commence as soon as this page has been published.  

The number of times a tribute is nominated plays no effect on the outcome, as I will be responsible for choosing ten of the nominated tributes who I believe deserve the title. These ten tributes will proceed to the second round.

Round II

Voting Period: February 14th to February 21st (23:00 EST)

During the second round, users will vote for two of the ten tributes they believe deserve the title. In order for the votes to be valid, they must include an honest explanation. The users are not allowed to vote for their own tributes. 

To prevent a bandwagon effect from occurring, voting for this round will be kept private and performed through Google Sheets, which will be published when voting begins. 

The five tributes with the most votes will proceed to the final round. 

Round III

Voting Period: February 22nd to February 28th (23:00 EST)

During the final round, users are allowed to vote for one of the five remaining tributes. In order for the votes to be valid, they must include an honest explanation 

To prevent a bandwagon effect from occurring, voting for this round will be kept private and performed through Google Sheets, which will be published when voting begins. 

The tribute with the most votes will be titled "Tribute of the Month."

Congratulations to all the users and their tributes that are officially in the running for "Tribute of the Month" and have proceeded to the Second Round!

Link for Voting: Tribute of the Month - Round 2 - February 2017

Full Disclosure: When determining which tributes would proceed to the second round, I specifically focused on the following criteria while making my decision:

  • An interesting and original background
  • A creative or expressive image 
  • A completed page (any unfinished tribute was immediately taken out of the running)
  • A potential storyline during the Hunger Games

Although I can't guarantee it for future "Tribute of the Months," I limited myself to only selecting one tribute from each user, since there was a wide variety of nominations. Honorable mentions include Ryder Locklear (created by SirEatAlotISTK), Kharjo Derkeethus (created by Tehblakdeath), Eleanor Rayle (creted by The Targaryen of District 4), and Macy Rayle (created by Oneders). Ryder and Kharjo almsot proceeded to the second round, but were unfortunately switched with two other tributes at the last moment.
