Vote: Player of the MonthFollow

#1 Aug 18 2008 at 6:17 PM Rating: Excellent
The nominations are in for September 2008 Player of the Month. Who will win?

Time to vote. The polls close on Sunday. Best of luck to all the candidates!

Question text
Soracloud :69 (10.5%)
Catwho :203 (30.9%)
VawnLakshmi :54 (8.2%)
Usagichan :177 (26.9%)
NCCoda :81 (12.3%)
Tummie :74 (11.2%)
Total:658



Poster's name: Soracloud
Poster's server: Ramuh
Reason for nomination: Sora wears a Culinarian’s Guild Apron when grilling. I guess, also, he’s kinda helpful and stuff sometimes.
Pertinent links: http://ffxi.allakhazam.com/Im/image/full?id=46010


Player Name: Catwho
Player Server: Seraph
Reason for Nomination: Always posts helpful information in a concise format. Never flames or trolls and stays on-topic.


Poster's name: VawnLakshmi
Poster's server: Lakshami
Reason for nomination: I know that there are a handful of people who don't like Vawn, but I personally think that his posts are always one of two things: 1. Helpful 2. Humorous
Pertinent links:

Name: Usagichan
Server: Unicorn
Reason: One of the best players, funniest people, and best friends anyone could ever ask for. FFXI is an entirely different game when playing with this guy. He has a ridiculously high post count on the forums here, much of which may be silly babble in the out of topic forum, but it is also a testament to how long he has been a member of the community and how much time he's really devoted to allakhazam and FFXI.


Poster's name: NCCoda
Player name: Furionstormrage
Player's server: Cerberus
Reason for nomination: Been around the PLD forum for a while now and has always been a very good source of information. He's a nice guy in general and doesn't jump down the throats of all the tards that come in and post the same question 1283718923 times without reading the stickys. (And if he does it's pretty **** amusing.)
Pertinent links: Sticky and pretty much any thread in the PLD forum.


Poster's name: Tummie (The ImmortalAlchemist of Doom)
Poster's server: Garuda
Reason for nomination: Tummie ftw!
Pertinent links: Contributes to many threads in a rational way.

Tough call between Vawn and Tummie. I ended up going Vawn because of yellow, and because he usually makes me laugh. Next time Tummie gets my vote for sure cause he is incredibly helpful, and knowledgeable.

As a side note, I hope the player of the month thing will be more regular from here on out.

Which is disappointing to hear that knowledge and helpfulness are a step under lulz.

In general I would agree with you that helpfulness should come before entertainment but I usually come to these boards for amusement while at work, so yes, "lulz" did play a role in my decision making process. And while I can think of a lepicdary thread Vawn has posted in the last month, I can not think of one Tummie has.

As I said I think Tummie is great, and deserves Player of the Month (actually I think all the nominees do, except NCCoda, whom I'm not familiar enough with to have an opinion on) So it's good to hear we'll be doing it again next month.

Vote for me and I will sing you any FF song you want. I'll alter the lyrics to stick your name in there someplace.

In fact, I'll take requests right now.

(I can do this because I have the same range as Risa Ohki.)

I voted for Furionstormrage AKA Furby

I got to know him on Cerberus, very good player and even better person. I never heard him bash a anyone, and always willing to help when he has the time.

Just wanted to post and say that I appreciate the nomination and the votes, thank you very much for considering me.

A lot of the posters probably don't know me, I tend to stick to the PLD boards mostly and try my best to keep a good updated guide on equipment and food, so anyone leveling PLD or using it now at any capacity, feel free to ask me some questions or offer advice, and I'll try to help as much as I can.

Tummie, for general presentation and contributions.

As another poster noted, it's a bit disheartening to see joke votes and clique nominations. Sure, I've done my share of crackin' wise, but seeing how quick some are to attempt to dismantle other posters or blast with crude humor, there are times I'd rather just PM a person who's lost if I don't see stuff answered throughout a thread to about the best it can be.

It was a tossup between Catwho and Tummie, but I went with Cat because her Avatar is awesome. Honestly I think that they both deserve it. Vawn shouldn't even be on the list in my opinion. A karma whine turned CJ is hardly anything new or interesting.

Tummies hard work in giving us all the juicy bits of info from version updates gets him my vote. Mainly because it means I have something to read during the inevitable emergency maintenance that follows.

You can be nominated for PotM after you've already won? With 8 bazillion people on this website, somehow that doesn't seem fair...
