So, the purpose of this thread is to rally support for the revival of the MOTM award, or the Member of the Month for any noobs who aren't familiar with it.
Well, I've noticed that for some reason (aka no reason), MOTM gets discontinued every five seconds. Well, here's my two cents: What's the point of even having it. You make a big deal out of it in 2015, a lot of awesome users are awarded it for their work, and then all of a sudden it's randomly discontinued. Well, this has got to stop one way or another.
I value the MOTM because mainspace editors who aren't patrollers or admins get recognition for projects that they've done. Then they're remembered forever, even if they never quite made it to patroller. They can feel like they're appreciated, and that all that hard work they did wasn't just for nothing.
When I edited during the Reign of Oppression, they had discontinued the MOTM badge by late 2013. Even though I was a godawful editor, none of the people who were actually awesome got the award between then and early 2015. I must say that it wasn't fair to them. Well, now that the Exodus exposed that they were just a bunch of whiny muppets, why do continue with random policies like that? They probably had a nervous breakdown and stopped it because they had no time to manage MOTM, which is understandable.
But now, we aren't pressured for time, and we don't have 8000 pages to create for the newest game. We can actually start up MOTM again.
So who's with me?
