Hi Ladies!

Time for something new! MOTM! MOTM stands for Mom/Member of the Month. Here's how it works:

* Around the end of each month, one of the hosts will put a call out for nominations.
* We will accept nominations for a few days, between 3-5.
* After we have collected nominations, we will post a poll (much like our voting for the themes).
* The poll will be up for about 5 days, depending on when it's posted (and to allow for the slower weekends)
* When the poll ends, the winner is announced The winner will get a special blinkie for their siggy!

Some FAQ
Who should we nominate for MOTM?
Anyone you feel has been ACTIVE, supportive, engaging, and an all-around great board member during the past month.

How do we nominate a member?
You can nominate a fellow member by simply sending a PM/private message to me or Rachel with the screen name/name of the person you wish to nominate.

How many ladies can I nominate?
You can nominate as many ladies as you would like!

One final note: Keep in mind that this is a way for us to collectively recognize those ladies that are just great! This is NOT and should not be a popularity contest (though I don't feel we would have any issues with that here!). We are simply trying to have a fun time, and recognize a member who is a great friend to all! It is meant to be all in good fun, and nothing more.

Have fun with this!

If you have any questions, or if anything is unclear, please feel free to ask either of us, either here or via PM! Let's have some fun ladies!

Start the nominations coming!
Hoping4bby and Xtapolapocet like this.

Yeah this board is so awesome and drama free!! Sometimes I lurk on other boards and they have weird rules that need to be in place because of other people's behavior.
I guess we are still kinda sorta new, but I can't imagine us being rude to extreme late comers because they haven't been with us from the beginning or excluding them or anything (something I guess can be an issue).

It also helps to have great hosts, but I love how every thread gets at least 1 reply and how we all share our experiences and encouragement but still keep the focus on the thread starter in the end.

OK, done with my off topic (though positive) rant, lol.

I'm so glad you are all so happy to be here. You are all just reaffirming the reason why we have such a rock solid DDC!

Now, let's get those nominations rolling in!

Maybe this will give me more motivation to post more and be less of a lurker. I never seem to know what to say.
