Did you miss me? Don't tell me you didn't!! I even missed myself! XD
Okay, okay! no more jokes... you know I like to talk about MyEC stuff and members and that's why I'm writing this blog.
I guess most of us remember that old section where the EC admin chose the 'Star Members' every month. That section was removed and followed by the one we can see now, the 'Top Members', where members who have set their profile as 'public' and are active in the site (regardless that activity is meaningful or not) are chosen by a 'robot' to be listed as the crème de la crème of the site.
Well, I've never been a 'fan' of these sections, but I know lot of people here are into that and it can be used as a 'motivational' tool for some. The thing is that I never found 'fair' the way people are chosen, because only people who have set their profile as 'public' have always had the chance to be chosen, while there are also lot of very helpful and active members who have been always left behind just for being more cautious about their privacy (and plz, don't take me wrong here! I'm not speaking for myself; here I have other active members in mind which profiles are private. My profile is not public but I've ALWAYS said that I don't feel like being featured anytime, anywhere)
What I wonder myself is: Wouldn't be much better if the ones choosing the best members are the members themselves??? Is not that the most 'logical' thing? Aren't we pro-democracy?? :P
Okay, before going any further, I'm gonna play a lil dictatorship role first! :D
I'm gonna pick myself who I think were the 'STAR MEMBERS' of January and February! --'My Queendom, my Rules' :P
STAR MEMBER OF JANUARY:
Because in January 13 she wrote as a professional journalist an awesome chronicle of the main things that happened the last year in MyEC:
"Blog Challenge: Memory of MyEC 2016"
And there she also encouraged people to do the same.
Also in January 19, she gave us another cool challenge that was followed by many people, where we all could improve our English language skills writing dialogues:
MY-AWESOME-EC STAR MEMBER OF JANUARY!
STAR MEMBER OF FEBRUARY:
Another EC lady (guys, take notes!) Because in the shortest month of the year, she took time to write 8 interesting blogs about very different topics and she also suggested 2 challenges. One of these challenges (February 20) was very popular among the EC members and made the blog section very active:
"Writing Challenge: My Story Behind the Picture"
Because of this and for being always a very active member, suggesting activities, encouraging people to write and discuss and for her humor sense that makes this site more funny, Luci is the undeniable...
MY-AWESOME-EC STAR MEMBER OF FEBRUARY!
*throwing confetti again*
And here is where my dictatorship ends and the 'democrazy' begins! March needs a brand new Star and that Star is among you all!
I suggest you to keep active and also to 'take notes' of who is contributing with interesting blogs, discussions, comments and activities in general... And then come here to vote who is for you the MY-AWESOME-EC STAR MEMBER OF MARCH!
But, for not making this a list of: 'I-m-gonna-vote-for-my-friends-to-be-star-members-no-matter-what-they-did', there is just one rule: You've to vote for any member giving reasons and examples of activities these members did during this month and why you think these activities were meaningful. Take as an example the way I picked Onee-chan and Luci: I didn't choose them because they are friends, but because they really did what I consider a very interesting activity during these months.
When the month ends, we'll see which member has got more votes and... voilá! We'll have a new STAR MEMBER! ^_^
I never liked the competitions and I hope this suggestion is not gonna be taken like that; I just hope this can be a chance to make the month more 'interesting', to motivate people to be active (take in mind that you can be a star member if you want, you just have to be active!) and also a way to notice and appreciate the work and time of all these members who do their best to keep the site alive.
So... That's all folks! You've 20 days left to vote and/or to be active for giving people reasons to vote for you! (logically, I suggest you to vote at the end of the month).
Let's get started!
P.S. Needless to say that I'm out of the polls, so thanks in advance if at any moment there is any lovely friend who wants to vote for me, but I'm 'out of commission'! ;)
