    ABW best voting and awards
    It looks like it is getting close to the ABW best voting again...It'll be fun to see if Matt and Alan go at it again this year hahaha....=0)

    I was also thinking, if Haiko would want to do this, if the voting etc...is done before aff.summit, maybe we could do an ABW affiliate marketing awards thing (kept 100% seperately from the Aff. Summit Pinacle Awards) if we were to set up a mini ABW member meet and greet.

    Like maybe for cocktails or something after the ABW panel is over with as a way to see old members, meet new ones, and have a couple people win awards in the meantime. It would be fun to have a short or long ABW member gathering to talk about everything on the board, to our sites, to social networking, to everything else we talk about, and to meet new faces.

    If it would happen, and H would give the ok to do an informal or small meet and greet and/or awards, I'd be happy to pitch in to the cost of trophies/awards etc...if people would want them. =0)

    Just a thought.

    I would absolutely love to see an ABW gathering, either at AS or held separately. ABW Awards would be cool, too.

    I think the categories are too broad...

    we need one like

    best affiliate


    ... from Las Vegas...

    ... south of Tropicana

    .... north of Flamingo

    .... and a tad west of Sahara

    I'd almost be a shoe-in

    I agree!

    How about some ABW Awards for:

    The Best ABW Member of 2007'.
    The Best ABW Newbie of 2007'.
    The Best ABW Post of 2007'.
    The Best ABW Poster of 2007'.
    The Best ABW Thread of 2007'.
    The Best ABW Moderator of 2007'.
    The Best ABW Avatar of 2007'.
    The Best ABW Moniker of 2007'.
    The Best ABW Affiliate Manager of 2007'.
    The Best ABW OPM of 2007'.
    The Best ABW Merchant of 2007'.
    The Best ABW Network of 2007'.
    The Best ABW New Parasite Discovery of 2007'.
    The Best ABW New Unethical Affiliate Discovery of 2007'.
    The Best ABW New Unethical Merchant Discovery of 2007'.
    The Best ABW New Unethical Network Discovery of 2007'.
    The Best ABW New Unethical Member Discovery of 2007'.
    The Best ABW New Unethical Buddy Discovery of 2007'.

    And just to be fair, how about some Awards for:

    The Worse ABW Member of 2007'.
    The Worse ABW Newbie of 2007'.
    The Worse ABW Post of 2007'.
    The Worse ABW Poster of 2007'.
    The Worse ABW Thread of 2007'.
    The Worse ABW Moderator of 2007'.
    The Worse ABW Avatar of 2007'.
    The Worse ABW Moniker of 2007'.
    The Worse ABW Affiliate Manager of 2007'.
    The Worse ABW OPM of 2007'.
    The Worse ABW Merchant of 2007'.
    The Worse ABW Network of 2007'.
    The Worse ABW New Parasite Discovery of 2007'.
    The Worse ABW New Unethical Affiliate Discovery of 2007'.
    The Worse ABW New Unethical Merchant Discovery of 2007'.
    The Worse ABW New Unethical Network Discovery of 2007'.
    The Worse ABW New Unethical Member Discovery of 2007'.
    The Worse ABW New Unethical Buddy Discovery of 2007'.

    And to top it all off:

    Since some members of ABW got married this year, and they announced it here on ABW,
    how about a Mr. and Miss. ABW Members of the year Award?

    Wow that's a lot....

    How about making it simpler and smaller and adding criteria like:

    1. Best over all ABW member:
    Posts valuable information freely, promotes the welfare of ABW and represents it in a positive manner, helps other members on a regular basis, recruits new members, etc...

    2. Best AM

    3. Best OPM

    4. ABW Affiliate of the year

    5. Most diverse marketer

    6. Most inspirational

    7. Best Mod.

    8. Ummm let make anything random up for H just because he deserves it for creating this home for all of us. but shhhhh........don't let him know.

    One way to also do it is to have Haiko create a group of people or ask someone or do it himself in creating the guidelines around what the winner should have done over the last year to win this. then maybe have a group of judges or mods that he would select to do the voting so it actually would remain a complete surprise until the awards show.

    Wow I was getting dizzy reading all those category suggestions. I agree - the simpler the better. The Affiliate Dinner on Saturday night could be a great time to announce these awards. It's a bit more casual and kicks off the Summit pretty nicely. Just my two cents :-)

    At every tradeshow/seminar/convention, the network's always been the biggest takeaway from the event.
    So kudos on getting this together.

    The vegas spaces are pretty limited though, so it might be good to secure a 100-200 person space ahead of time, collect payment (unless it's being sponsored)...

    From past experience, the availability of a meeting venue is the biggest bottleneck, 'less some of the Wynn super affs put in a request early....

    That can't be it, that doesn't work. Can't have one person or just a few vote Best Of, has to be open to everybody like the past years.

    Oh wait, I think I read that part wrong. I was reading that as he - just Haiko voting, when I think you meant he was going to do voting, meaning everybody as usual.

    What strikes me as weird is that even a Mod doesn't know what is going on with this. Whazzup Haiko?

    There was not enough time to both nominate and vote (per our usual schedule) before the dinner, so I'll start taking nominations for the various categories after Affiliate Summit.
