Hey guys and gals! I was thinking we should have a DML member of the year. Maybe have a small token for who ever is voted that member. Not sure how we can arrange it but i'm sure it can be arranged. What do you guys think? Ofcourse the member of the year will be voted for by forum family to be fair. Maybe run it until Jan. 5th 2008. I PM'd Greg to get his input. Thoughts?

Check page 3 for the rules. Sorry this is edited but we had some good ideas come up! Peace on ya!

I nominate SGarett for being able to speak his opinion and keeping it good and civilized, not to mention being a very wise musician.

It's a toss up between BillyRay and SGarrett. I leaning more towards Bill just because I find his view on everyday things very hilarious, and he makes me think alot (which could be dangerous).

why not make a poll and nominate three or four people and just allow people to vote?
also, any criteria? playing or posting? though playing would be hard unless it was a video poll
