Helping Hand Nominations


The Helping Hand award is intended to award those members who truly care about the community and show that by helping those around them. This might be someone who consistently provides outstanding answers to questions on the forum, helps people boost in a game even when they no longer need any achievements, or other such community focused activities.

This award is specifically NOT intended to recognize those members of our community who write incredible guides and walk-throughs, or in fact any other activity that has its own award. This is for people who just go above and beyond because of love of community.

If you want to nominate someone for the Helping Hand award, please make sure that you meet the following criteria:
  • You have been a member of the site for at least 6 months
  • You have at least 500 posts on the site (250 if you are a subscriber)
  • You have no active infractions
  • You cannot nominate yourself

The person being nominated will need nominations from at least 10 people, and generally for at least 4 different activities (such as helping in 2 different games and providing assistance in two different threads). In addition, they must meet the following criteria:
  • They must have been a member of the site for at least 12 months
  • They must have at least 1,000 posts on the site

Note that each individual nomination will be reviewed by three staff members, and two of the three must agree that the nomination is worthy of the award.


********************


If you would like to nominate someone for the Helping Hand award, please post in this thread with why you feel they are worthy. Please include links to appropriate posts or threads on the site which demonstrate your point when appropriate.

For that matter, I could use one for each of the stickies in this forum.

I have quite a few people in mind it's damn tough to put down just one name, I'm going to see who some other users mention.

These threads were a nice surprise.

That's where I'm at right now. Naming several people at once doesn't seem in the spirit of the award (cheapens it I guess?), and it's hard for me to think of just one person that I really think deserves it right now.

just name one each then. you could do them in alphabetical order, then wait a couple of weeks between each nomination. also, dont forget, that even if they are nominated, it doesn't nescassarily mean they will get the award.

or you could name all the people you think deserve it. im sure that would be fine with Creech, if multiple people deserve it, then multiple people should be nominated.

That's a good point. Also, considering that up until now this award hasn't existed, there will probably be an initial cluster of people getting this award just to get "caught up" for lost time (if that makes any sense ). There are certainly people who have deserved this all along and simply couldn't get it because it didn't exist.

No need to mess about. I nominate:

Creech

I could link you to various threads/topics but really what would be the point as this is a given. Work on recruiting for all of the teams, work on motivating staff, work on introducing new awards/ideas, work on renovating the forums etc etc.

Should obviously be the first winner IMO.

Make sure when you nominate someone, provide some links to threads that show them helping out.

Creech: You mentioned active infractions, yet members can't see their own infractions so are you going to double check the nomination posters and delete their posts if they have active infractions?

I'll look into the others, but whoever made the HH award is best doing this one. I saw your GFX post, so one of the other guys should also see it soon!

On the matter of the rules. I know it's stupid, but so are people. Worth mentioning that you can't vote for yourself...

I agree Creech should be the first one with this, there isn't a more helpful guy around at the moment.

*Clueless* deserves a nomination from me also as she has helped me a lot over the last few weeks.

Just give Creech all the awards. We all know that he wants them all. He can be the Pokemon Master that we've all dreamed to be.

That brings up the question, are staff eligible? And if so, what should be considered going above and beyond, and what should be considered merely fulfilling their role?

Either way, I agree that Creech has gone above and beyond and gladly nominate him
Not even going to post any links, it's just not needed in this case...

You might as well nominate multiple people at once if you feel they're all deserving since it will take 9 more nominations anyway.

Throw me down for Creech and Clueless for obvious reasons and the multitude of reasons listed above.

For Clue I also want to add that period in which she was churning out guides like there was nothing else in the world which allowed the site to catch up on the backlog. I know that may not seem like a helping hand thing, but man oh man that's a whole site contribution we are all indebted to.

For Creech the countless hours of revamping and redoing many outdated aspects has not gone unnoticed and he should be at the front of the line to receive this award.

+1 for Creech for obvious reasons, worked his arse off the past few weeks improving this site!

+1 for Clueless for all her work on the greenbook etc. etc.

+1 for Tyger again for reasons already stated, his guides are always top notch as well.

+1 for Corrupt as well. Reasons being the absurd amount of roadmaps he has created recently, as well as the fact he sent me fallout 3 for pc at no costs during the gamerscore league (Although I've now realised I cant play it as I've no idea what the password is for the email address associated with my XBL account, fml)

I'd also like to nominate Creech and * Clueless * for all the reasons stated by you guys. In addition to what has already been mentioned, * Clueless * also helped us out in the Maximum Clubs for a while last year on top of all her Guide Team and Mod duties.

My post should b updated with everyone's nominations up to this point. Creech and Clueless both have more than enough votes to be eligible for the award.

Road maps have their own award so that doesn't qualify a member.

You can count me in for Creech & Clueless as well. Besides the award, I think they both need a pass to a day spa.

Well, I am going to try to get 3 staff members who are not me to run this, but yes, the staff will be involved and will remove posts that don't meet the guidelines.

Speaking of which, the nominations for Tyger should not be counted if it is a reference to his amazing guides and road maps. I nominate him for his efforts with forming the Collectibles Guide Team and the leadership he is providing that group.

There are times when members help out other members that include off-site things, as well as actions that are too broad. In those cases, we can just list them, yeah? However, if someone does something specifically in a thread/post, we can link it then.

Another one, before I forget, I'd like to nominate Jappe.

Reason is for the amount of time he spent on forza 2 gifting ANYBODY free cars or credits in order to help out with the 'get all cars' achievements. Not sure if he still does it but I did request a 'few' free cars now and then he gave them away no problem. Must have took him a while and a bit of work to give up his own free time to give cars to anyone so thats the reason I nominate him!

Here's the thread:

I'd like to nominate Capn Doug. He's sent me games on more than one occasion, covering shipping my way. And he's helped me out with achievements in more than one instance. In all cases (games sent, achievement help, etc.) he actively sought to help me out, I didn't go out seeking it, and never has he asked anything in return.
