I'm not trying to make myself get more votes but if you look back on all the past winners, how many of them actually still post on here once and a while? I know Fino doesn't have his RS anymore and a a few of the others I haven't seen since they won.

I think that a percentage of the voting on the ROTY should be in board participation also.

i agree contributing to the board is a big part, and should be considered a factor.

Noone is ever going to be able to determine how many insightful comments past ROTM winners have made. I know a lot of them haven't stuck around at all, like "Forddesigner", whos last post was actually in the ROTM showcase right after he won and hasn't posted since. I think most of the people who are actually going to vote will take that into consideration...but there isn't going to be any fair way that we could factor in contributions made to the website, because the people who don't post that often are going to get screwed while the people who post a lot are going to walk away with it. I think we should just leave it up to the voter...unless there is a good way of going about this?

Just because a member doesn't have a super high post count doesn't mean they haven't contributed a lot to the forum.

Agreed, quality over quantity

I'm not talking about post whoring and worthless posts. True I would consider someone would posts helpful info and has won ROTM to be a top contender but when is the last time you saw a few of the ones that have won post? It just seems to me like a lot of them just posted to win then they stopped once they did. Maybe they still lurk but I haven't seen let's say Forddesigner or Scarecrow post in a good while and both of them have very nice Focus's.
