Exclamation What is Crown Of the Week?

What is Crown Of the Week?

Folks,

All of you try to come up with some really interesting topics or post current events and then participate.

I have decided to select two such topics and crown them for the week. Hence the new section. I will manually transfer threads to that forum. So its not open for you to post.

Well what's the big deal?
Well I dont have money to give away because you dont come here to make money. I want to bestow some appreciation to all of you who do a thankless job of keeping this site interesting and relevant.

How will I decide which threads are deserving of this crown?
First I will look at how many stars a thread has received from you
Secondly I will look for the actual content and how much interest there is.
Thirdly I will share my vote with the mods and if they concur I will put the thread up there. And no, it will be my sole decision and not just mods. So if you think I always say yes to whatever mods say then no, its my decision. So even if mods say no, I will override them.

What will it get me or get you?
Nothing except maybe a small token of appreciation in the winners mind that they did not waste time but their thread was interesting to a lot of people.
And mind you, search engines spider our site so fast, that a topic posted today shows up almost within 24 hours on major search engines.

How to identify the thread?
I am going to move it to the Crown of the week forum and also edit the post and put this image in it

Should not include the thread starter's vote. Otherwise we will have a very irritating front page with stars on each thread. Maybe the thread starter should not be allowed to rate his/her own thread.

Every member - including thread starter - can vote exactly once on each thread for the life of the thread. So your point is valid and noted.

Why thread starter can not vote for his/hew own thread? If thread starter votes for his own thread it will have at the max one vote. We should consider threads with atleast 2-3 votes rating that thread....

Also is it necessary to have the thread only getting 5 Starts to be considered in Crown of the week contender? If yes i m sure people will start rating others thread down by rating them terrible....

Re: What is Crown Of the Week?

As winners for the first week ending Sunday 4th of July 2010, I applaud viking and amritvani for their threads.

Viking' thread - Bharat Bandh - Protest Against Fuel Price Hike

viking is an old timer but he comes up with brilliant threads which evoke lots of responses - serious and our usual deraling ones too Thanks to viking for keeping it kicking one post at a time


Amritvani's thread - How to avoid cutting vegetables
A very interesting and odd ball thread amritvani is a new comer yet he has some interesting topics to his credit and some engaging responses. Even if he is an old id in a new avatar (and no I did not check nor will I check IP logs), I am happy to welcome him here.



So folks, by next Sunday I will put up two more threads. So start rating your favorite threads, keep answering to interesting topics and start some of yoru own topics.

Bhau, you are welcome because you have many political views which are not very much like mine, and so it will be a good chance to debate you.

No! I promise my threads, however popular, will never appear in the crown of the week forum. If a mod has really created an interesting topic and you guys vote for it then we can have it there.

I still dont get it? Why the fuck is this needed?
Have you ever received a plaque or a certificate at work from your boss saying you did something special and the company would like to recognize your efforts and dedication? It has no monetary value, but I am sure you display it proudly in your cubicle or office. Well, this is something like that. Its my way of saying - thank you, you are very much appreciated and cherished here.

Did you recently get promoted to a managers post ???

- Appreciate it
- team event
- incentives
blah blah


Good idea though. I first thought that vbulletin has this feature which makes use of the number of views, replies and votes to decide it automatically.

If I was a manger and you were my employees then I would not do this. I would say 'Chal re .. kaam kar'

No, I did not get promotion but I wanted to do what even my manager does not do - show some thanks and appreciation.

Exactly ... I have all my plaques, certificates, cups, plates, saucers, and spoons hanging behind me on the wall. So why cant a recipient keep his crown in his signature? Ranirajaji shares the view. Sutradarji, for all the trouble members have to go through, least you can do is place a tinier version of crown in Vikingbhai and Amrtiji's signature as an honor? Or are you too lazy?

Landyabhai ... never mind us ... we will rort the system but don't you feel sorry for Sunnyji? He will never get his crown. He will have to be happy with crowns Savita Babhi bestows upon him.

Re: What is Crown Of the Week?

This week seemed very dry except for Mallu Rider and dhurandar's thread. Honestly, I wanted to give only two crowns because both threads were really good according to me.

But then came ashdoc from behind and floored with a great thread which was not just a copy paste but his original thoughts. I enjoyed the discussion that ensued. Even viking admitted in the thread that BJP needs to introspect and correct their mistakes. I was impressed with the thread!

And lastly raniraja's thread evoked a lot of interesting responses. Sort of bared the otherwise hidden thinking of all of us.
