Newbie of the month is a contest we have where we just have members pick their favorite newbie. Sometimes we combine months, if there were lots of newbies. Sometimes we skip months entirely. For a while there, we had newbie of the week because we were getting tons of new members... that's actually what started all this. Established members spent so much time bashing the newbies that we wanted to encourage some positiveness.

If you don't win newbie of the month, it doesn't mean that we don't love you. Often it's just a timing issue. But if you do win, or even if you get some votes, stick around. It's a sign that we think you could do great things on the forum.

You are allowed to vote for yourself. You can also campaign for yourself, but only in the actual thread. It's encouraged, to an extent.
