    If the MHoC sent a member to intrude on a different part of the forum to make a post advertising the MHoC the post would be removed with the member likely receiving a small punishment. It should follow that when a use from another part of the sites enters the MHoC to promote something that they should be given the same treatment.

    Well have a guess, you're the only person who fits what Jacob is saying. I don't think you had to ask.

    In the absence of any other member coming from a different part of TSR to create a thread promoting something in the MHoC, I think that would be a resounding yes.

    This is a TSR-wide project and the category of award being advertised is directly related to the MHoC. If you don't like that... well, that's tough. Take it up with the CT if you want to complain.

    I disagree. Encouraging forums to mingle is a good thing imo and this is relevant to here. Besides, we're soon going to be looking at ways to advertise the referendum. Lets not set a precedent we'll regret

    I care little for the contest, but this does not seem to be a sufficient explanation; I expect Joep95 received multiple nominations along with other members. I struggle to see how anybody other than CoffeeGeek, Afcwimbledon2, Saracen's Fez and potentially DayneD89 ended up on the list.
    You can’t have a very long memory. I assume I was nominated because for half of 2017 I was prime minister.

    Somebody who has about as many opinions as an inanimate object

    Where are the people who actually did anything last year, posted legislation or were active on the MHoC? Joep95 is the most noteworthy person to not be included in this ridiculous contest, who actually would have deserved a vote due to his consistent activity.
    :hat2:

    Did you nominate them? If you didn't, you can't complain about the fact that they weren't nominated.

    Can I just say that I really have no idea who nominated me. As you all know, I have retired from the MHoC :lol: I didn't even get a chance to nominate for any community awards this year as I simply don't have the time. So, I apologise for those who are well deserving to be nominated and weren't. Really, I do.
    I thought Paracosm was having a joke to be honest.

    I understand why you would say this but I am just saying that this is a terrible set of candidates, which is why I won't be voting. For the record, I do not believe I would have been a worthy winner. I mentioned four nominations that held some form of justifcation; other members I can think of from each party that would have been better (to varying degrees) are JellyMilk for becoming the Labour Party's most prominent member, PetrosAC for his work in the Liberal Party (and Speakership, if that is deemed an acceptable criteria), Vitiate for his importance in the Conservative Party last year, Gladstone1885 for leading the Libertarian Party to their first election and Joep95 for being the most active member this year. All of these members held more relevance at different points last year than 04MR17, Airmed, TeeEf and ns_2.
    I must say that I'm surprised to be up there in that category, but the nominees are determined by the nominations and if people don't nominate the worthy winners you've outlined then expect the nominees to not be the ones you wanted.

    You are right, the MHoC is part of TSR, as the MHoC is part of TSR it should be right for the MHoC to advertise itself around TSR as other TSR features do in the MHoC. But we know the advertising works one way, undermining the whole point you are trying to make.

    As has been said before here and in other places, I nominated members who are not on the poll, Joe nominated members who are not on the poll, and Saunders nominated members who are not on the poll. That implies there needed to be a minimum number of nominations to be included in the poll, or the ST creating the poll cherry-pick their favourites, which is likely.

    To my knowledge, no cherry picking occurrs and if it is it'd be the CT rather than the ST. You can go to AtCT over that if you want it looked at, they'd hear you out.

    It might be good, but that does not change that if this were done the other way around the CT would come down heavily, this isn't even advertising something active, it's just another bunch of pointless awards that I doubt many people actually care about and will be forgotten in a week with the relevant part of the site I assume being made private for another 11 months.

    With respect, you're just going to have to deal with it. It happened, and it will happen again next year, and the year after and so on. This is not a MHoC issue (meaning, it's not something the Speaker could influence even if he wanted to), this is a TSR-wide project and it will be advertised accordingly.

    Don't worry, I'm using to putting up with inconsistency with the CT.

    From speaking to members of the CT my experience is that they are happy for us to advertise the MHoC to the rest of TSR when its done in a way that is relevant and also benefits the forum it's posted in.

    To give an example I had permission to post the next question time outside of this forum, but after two weeks with only one question (and one reply) I decided it wasn't worth it for that.
