    Yeah, I deleted my post after checking it. Just one post in 2006, the rest in 2009.

    Keystrokes by far!

    There were a few tough choices like BlogBonnieBlog, SlowCooker, etc...

    How have we done this in the past? By actual join date, or when they become active? I can see merits in doing it either way.

    It was by join date and they had to have a minimum of 50 posts.

    Actually, the 50 post requirement was removed last year. Looking through previous years, as I think we ran across the join vs. active question before.

    In previous years, it was strictly by join date, so that's what we'll stick with.

    Tough list. I can't narrow it down to only a couple to nominate. There are a dozen or more names on that list I don't recognize; so evidently I wasn't impressed by their posts - if I even saw them. But there are another dozen, or more, whom I believe have added some real value to ABW. The importance of those contributions would/could be measured by different readers in different ways - depending on where those readers' personal interests lie.

    I'll defer to others to nominate here and then I'll vote in the final poll. I know y'all will choose good members.

    I've always thought of this as the newbie that when we see their name appear it confuses you because you know they've been here longer than just a year. These are the people who don't only come here to learn or promote their programs/sites but also participate as part of the general membership and in the larger conversation.

    pjvesperman and slowcooker are 2 that pop out at me that definitely meet that criteria.

    I'll second slowcooker. Plus, who doesn't love a good pot roast? I own two slowcookers myself! (although here in MinnesOOOta, we call 'em Crock Pots)

    I could have nominated them all (is there a limit?) but here are a few

    BlogBonnieBlog
    BrettSaver
    lintlin
    PDXreader
    pjvesperman
    SlowCooker

    There are others who I think are assets to the community but don't have enough posts like JohnHawkins and SweetiesSwag.

    There's no requirement for the number of posts, so we'll take the two you mentioned and any others nominated. That's just what I chose for the list of members that would probably be good nominees.

    The only requirements to be nominated are that they joined in 2009 and that they're a member in good standing.

    This is a bogus nomination ....

    It should be broken down into a bazillion categories.

    Some are funny, some are beyond intelligent, some are affiliate pros, some are just a great part of the community, learning what they can...

    So many great New ABW members last year to add to my list...

    I don't keep up with who is new or not, but if...

    BlogBonnieBlog
    BrettSaver
    lintlin
    PDXreader

    .. are new, they are definately in the mix.....

    That's one of the challenges every year, and the main reason we provide a list of some potential nominees. So many just get into the mix so quick and fit in so well that it seems like they've been here forever.

    Did I mention yet that this is usually my favorite category every year? It's great to see so many new family members!

    I'm humbled just being nominated. Thank you so much ladidah and loxly.

    ABW is a site I've read for years (and I do mean years) and I'm really interested in continuing to grow my involvement with the community.

    I'll be hanging out at AffiliateSummitWest for a bit on Monday and I plan to do everything in my power to finally meet Loxly in person. If I do that, the show was successful!

    If permitted, I would like to nominate "Wild Ambitions"
