    Not quite. Although the proportions of leather, metal and skin are correct.

    In July of 2010, Atudor entered the contest just as any other nominee. One could not imagine in their wildest CPOTM nightmares, that that simple entry would be accompanied by an unstoppable campaign for votes, pages of deleted comments, the first CPOTM thread-lock, and the first CPOTM coup! To this day, it remains questionable whether or not it was entertainingLaughing

    In August of 2010, LisaV introduced for the first time in the history of CPOTM, a rare and ultimately dangerous weapon: Pictures of women in leather, carrying whips. Some "gentlemen" voted hundreds of times, as if their digits were out of control. It turned out to be a landslide victory for LisaV, with some people still believing that a person named Xenia won that month...

    haha

    I must take issue with your interpretation, though.  I won clearly because of my purity and innocence, not because of stuff like this:

     

    Ha! I certainly voted for you because of your purity and innocence, but I'm not too sure that some of the men voted for Xenia's purity and innocenceWink

    Xenia also won the anti-coup regime vote, spoiling the expected ascension to the crown of the crony Doyle and causing the Tudor dictatorship to actually flee and form a short-lived secessionist regime, which existed mostly due to the proceeds of the corruption that would eventually lead to the execution of its leader.

    To continue my personal view on the month-by-month history of this award...

    In September of 2010, as previously mentioned, Atudor had started a coup. He created his own chess player of the month award with the prize being a membership to Chess.com, which he personally would pay for. Much chaos ensued, and bitter feelings spilled into September's actual CPOTM. Meanwhile, rather quietly, someone named Heinze nominated himself for the award. What followed was a slew of peeps voting for this unknown being, as if compelled by forces beyond themselves. Heinze became, and remains the first unseeded player to win CPOTM.
