Hey guys, as you may have noticed the Reviewers Spotlight usually goes up on the first Thursday of the month. With the holidays fast approaching and the number of activities we have planned, we thought it would be a great idea to put the spotlight on hold for a little while and get feedback from the community.
The criteria for who is chosen boiled down to how long a person had been in the community, how well they write reviews, and their overall popularity.
However, there was very little input from the community about who was selected and ultimately came down to the person's availability.
How should contributors be chosen for the spotlight? Popularity? Rank? Activity on the forum?
How long should the spotlight last? One week, two weeks, one month?
How often should the spotlight be held? Once a month? Once every other month?
We're all ears so bring us your suggestions!
Hmmmmmmm I happen to think it would be kind of amazing if the winner of the Contributor of the Month could sit in the hot seat and be grilled mercilessly about who they are, and why they are here! Doesn't that sound like fun??
Possibly the spotlight could be just a couple of weeks to keep it fresh? One contributor chosen by the community and then one member of staff? I can see a time when new members of the community could be spotlighted, welcomed and probed;you know, like the aliens do! That'd draw in all the real interesting people if they know there is probing involved...
I think all of the criteria should be available: rank, milestone, activity, basic interest, new blood, anyone who stands out...and the ones who prefer to hide in the shadows. Let's yank them out and inspect them! (Only if they are willing, mind you.)
