I've been a member for two years now and have lurked for many more years, and sometimes I will read a thread that goes above and beyond anything that
anyone else has posted, and IMO sometimes a star and flag doesn't do the thread justice.
Is there any way that these contributors can be further rewarded for their outstanding achievements? and could ATS have an annual ceremony that
acknowledges these members?
Think of it like the Oscars of ATS:
Best Grey Area thread
Best Political news thread
Best Fragile Earth thread
and so forth.
And when I mean rewards, I don't mean toasters or gift cards-I mean some kind of notification that appears on a members avatar that lets the rest of
us know that they have made a significant contribution-like a trophy or a banner. Sometimes I get frustrated when I can only give one flag when a
thread deserves much more, and maybe the mods could deliberate once or twice every year and vote for their favorite entrants, and that itself could
provoke other members (like myself for instance) to provide better threads and increase the quality of their content.
Could it work? can we have an annual ATS awards?
