Default Best Thread of 2008 Contest

Since we all love contests here on WF, how about a Best Thread of 2008 contest.

It would be simple. 10 threads RC related threads (no off topic area threads) would be chosen by our mods and those 10 threads would be be voted by all WF members.

The authors of the top three voted threads would get a some kind of award that he/she would keep in his/her awards showcase until next year when we have another contest.

What do you think?

The mods get to choose which threads make it into the top 10?

hmmmmmm...

Is it too late to start sucking up to the mods? Do you think they take bribes? Cheep bribes?

What's with the bias against the off topic threads?

I for one, think that the off topic threads is one of the better features of Wattflyer.

Having spoken with several people at events, trying to drum up new members for the forum, they have said that there's no content here, that's not found on other forums. A few that I have spoken with have been drawn in by participating in some of the off topic threads.

The off topic threads do have value, no matter what some folks here might say.

I think trying to award a thread as the best of 08 is like trying to paint a crack with a push broom. The brush stroke is just too wide.

I do not believe this is something that we would like to attempt. Thanks for the suggestion though.

Is this a way to justify your place on earth?

Now now David, must you condemn all of the State of Florida for the existence of Wilbur?
