    Time to vote for the 2017 Jeeves Award

    Sponsored Ad:
    Ladies and gentlemen,

    The time has come to cast your ballot for our peer-voted award for forum team player--the 8th Annual Jeeves Award!

    The criteria are the sort of things you'd expect and that we all enjoy about this forum:
    1) helpful commentary and advice
    2) overall team-oriented behavior
    3) positive outlook and/or humor
    4) don't take admissions results or profiles into account
    5) non-moderator status (moderator breaks ties)

    Of course the criteria are fluid, so feel free to assign weights as you see fit. The award is about stepping outside of yourself to help people you probably don't even know, which improves the quality of the applicant pool in general.

    Here are the results from some of the older threads:

    2016
    2015
    2014
    2013
    2012
    2011
    2010

    Vote by replying to the thread (rather than using the upvote button), and we'll tally when the thread dies out.

    Well, Chateauheart won last year so I guess I better vote for someone new. I'll go with Startz.

    I agree that we should prefer not to give awards to the same person twice in a row.

    Unfortunately Chateauheart has been too helpful and will have to accept the award anyway. I vote for him.

    This isn't to downplay all the other helpful people on the forum, it's just that Chateauheart is simply *that* nice.

    I'm not sure that 3 votes is enough for a quorum. Would other people care to cast ballots?

    There just aren't enough people commenting regularly anymore to get a reasonable number of nominees and voters.

    Long time no see! Perhaps seven years has been a good run. Although I'd defer to tm_member: the forum looks really slow; is it dying, or are the sticky threads doing their job (or both)?
