Hi Peter and all,

This topic is of great intereste to me, so I'm back!  LOL!!!

One thing that I have struggled with in keeping tabs on the POTW is the start and finish times.  I'm not sure how it was a year ago, but it seems that everything became a bit offset.  I am a bit dyslexic, so bear with me on this.

I would find it helpful to end the elections on a specific day, and then start the new election on the day the congratulatory forum for the previous winner is posted.  One example would be to end elections on Friday night.  Post the congratulatory and new election on Monday or late Sunday night.  I think right now they end on a Thursday and the next election starts on Friday and then the congratulatory is posted on Monday.   It would definitely help me with a tighter schedule.  Just a thought...

About consistency throughout the community, it seems that most of the feature forums have slipped a lot this year.  It more than likely had a lot to do with notification failures.  I looked into this and found that a lot of forums that I was signed up to be notified was no longer so.  I had to manually reactivate them.  It took a lot of time, but was worth it.  I guess I better go look again after the recent missing notifications.

I do not want to forget this time in saying that I commend you and your team for all that they do AND for reaching out to the community for help and ideas.  It's like sending out a hug!  LOL!!

I will help however possible!

Joe

Hi Team,

Congrats Joyce & Phil, on the VOTW !!!!

My votes in, and I do vote every week without fail, I might not post as I am very constrained for time. But vote I do faithfully at all the voting forums. :-)

I would like to see the POTW remain the POTW, but I also know it involves a lot of work, as maintaining  forums require from time to time.

It is saddening to see the vote count drop and many members who have had the thrill of winning the POTW participate no more. 

As one who helped John run this forum for a year, I would would like to say this that there is a lot of work that goes in to keeping these forums running, my friends you all have no idea how much effort it takes ...if only you all knew :-) The least we could expect from our members is regular support to make it all worthwhile.  as John would say.. we have 160 potw's  on an average 50% of this plus some new members participation I think 100 votes on an average turnout would be good. But as we see this is not so and it is sad. I would not blame it on the malfunctions of Adland. This trend has been going on for quite a while before the breakdown in the system. Yes maybe a wee %age could.

Past winners were and are very active members, dont tell me they dont know where to go to find the potw forum  and need  the notifications to tell them! I personally have bookmarked all the voting forums among many of my favorites that I keep tabs on. So.........

I would appeal to all our past winners to come together to make this event as memorable an event as it is intended to be, and to bring back the community spirit its supposed to spread.

I think Adland is the best place on the net, and there are awesome members who inspire and help spread love and warmness throughout the community, I hope I get to see a miracle happen and all pull together to keep the POTW alive and running well.

Much luv n hugz

Pauline

Hi POTW team,

My vote was for bi-weekly as this is what makes the most sense
to me, even though I see I'm completely outvoted!   :-)

TO JOYCE AND PHIL - CONGRATULATIONS ON BEING VOTW!

Have a wonderful weekend everyone,

Jen
