[Discontinued] Introducing Member of The Week and Member of The Month awards in Techulator.com
Many of you reported we don't have a lot of contests and other reward programs. It is true that we do not publicly announce a lot of contests and reward programs in this site. The primary reason was, we did not want to create an unhealthy competition between our active members. Instead, we were silently rewarding our best authors in different ways.
In last 2 years, we have grown to a popular technology website. I think it is time to start some programs to attract more people and keep our existing members motivated. As part of these efforts, we are introducing Member Of The Week award.
Member Of The Week Award
Every week, we will select one member as the Best Member Of The Week award winner. For the selection of the winners, the week starts on Monday and ends on Sunday. The winner name will be announced on the following Tuesday or Wednesday.
The prize will be
The Member of The Week award program starts today (Monday - 28 May 2012).
Member Of The Month Award
Every month we will select the best member as the 'Member of The Month'. The month starts on the 1st of the month and ends on the last day of the calendar month.
The prize will be
The Member of The Month award program starts on 1 June 2012.
The selection will be primarily based on the total points earned by the member from the content contribution in all sections of this site.
The idea is to reward the member who adds most value to the site. There is no guarantee that the person with the highest points will win the award. Someone with lower points may be selected if his/her contribution is much more valuable in the form of high quality articles and Answers in the Ask Experts section.
No member will be considered for the same award more than 2 times consecutively. For example, if you are the best member for week 1, week 2, week 3, and week 4, you will be selected as winner in week 1 and week 2. You will not be considered on week 3 but will be considered again on week 4.
We reserve the rights to exclude any member from the selection if we find he has been involved in any activities that are not in the best interests of Techulator.com
If you have any suggestions, please let me know.
