Should we have one? Why/Why not? If so, what do you think would be the best way to determine who gets into it?

Hey Trish, maybe if its voted "yes" for an expert category, we can vote on the stipulations to move up?

oh and to add.. i dont think it should matter which LEVEL you win in SOTM.. if you win 3 silvers or bronze.. then fine, if you win 2 silvers and 1 bronze, fine. or if you win one of each, fine

i dont think it should matter WHICH

that's how votes like this work.
Now Natasha there's a point you made in the other thread I'm not clear on, are you saying we should base the SOTW wins and SOTM and most nommed wins starting now? And not on previous wins?

I don't think it should be started over? I mean regardless of the rules changing now, winner still worked hard on the winning siggies, and I mean, they DID win?

i'd suggest be completely new.. i mean do you have every win since the challenges have been started years ago??

i mean you've only kept log on the int and beg, and not so much the adv, since there is no where else for us to go??

or is the list only started 6 months, a year ago?? because if so, then there are a LOT of wins missing from a lot of people get what im saying? if you wanted to just continue with what we already have

because i have no idea what ive won in the last 2 years

so far the only thing i remember is the win from just dec.. KWIM

Yeah I could see basing SOTW wins all over, however, there is a track of who has won SOTM, Maker's Choice, and most nommed through last year and who all won Gold SOTM from 2008.

yeah thats cooll then if you have the counts from the last 2 previous years, i think counting the last 2 previous years makes sense..

but to start over SOTW totally makes sense as those havent all been counted since.. god knows when, when it comes to last year or vise versa

I would really like the opinions of those who voted no also. It'll help in weighing our decision.

I think this is a great idea & I agree with the 20 wins or 3 SOTM gold medals... I actually was thinking that qualifications for becoming Advanced should be uped to 6-9 wins as well... But its just ideas coming from a tired Mommy...

I'm undecided on this and didn't vote... yet. I think basing only on SOTM wins is the way to go with an expert category though. It should be hard to get into expert.

I don't see how we can not count the past....if there were the case no one would be expert for a long time...20 sotw wins would take 5 months if you won every single sotw. So I think we need to count what has been done in the past. *IF* we add another category.

And I think have most nom'd as one of the possibilites to move up is fine, but I don't think it should be a requirement. Some makers do not make enough siggies each month to ever win that, but it doesn't mean that the siggies they do make aren't expert level.
