Do you know someone who needs to be mentioned? Well you've come to the right place. Join this month's Chess Player of the Month for April 2012! (aka CPOTM) The rules are that you can nominate anyone on chess.com for whatever reason. Whether it would be friendly, humor, or personality, they can be nominated. However, please try to keep is positive about your nominated person.
Each person can nominate up to two members. You HAVE TO SAY why you want to nominate he/she or you will be ignored. If a member that you want to nominate has already been nominated, do not say: "I second the nomination!" or "I etc. the nomination." However, you can say another reason why you think that person should be nominated. I cannot be nominated. You cannot nominate yourself. Those who have won the other CPOTM contests cannot be nominated again again. Also, in order to be a candidate, the candidate must have logged on to chess.com no more than one month before the current month on the thread.
The past winners are:
veggiegirlie, haddad56, deckers1066, Alan_Tudor, LisaV, heinzie, goldendog, ilikeflags,
AndyClifton, blackfirestorm666, batgirl, bigpoison, Kacparov, echecs06, TheGrobe, pdela,
oinquarki, corrijean, ozzie_c_cobblepot, trysts, kohai, chess_kebabs, STAR_egypt, ivandh
so they cannot be nominated again. It follows the same rules as the other Chess Player of the Month forum topics I have posted.
Important notice: voting will be a little different this month. I will explain it as time comes.
To make voting and nominating easier for me, please keep posts or parts of posts related to nominating and voting in red.
I want to make it clear that there is no advertising to vote for one member for it will not be fair for the member(s) not advertised. Advertising includes:
1. posting on forums, blogs, notes, etc. to ask people to vote for a nominated person(s)
2. messaging members to ask people to vote for a nominated person(s), cannot be detected clearly, but will be suspicious
3. as simple as posting the link to this forum and posting a username with the link ("link" playerA!!!)
If you do advertise, you will be blocked until the end of this month AND next month, and the nominated player you have advertised will be removedfrom the list.
I want to make it clear that I do understand that I cannot control one's actions from advertising, but at the same time, they should always take a look at the first post of this thread. From now on I will not be responsible for your actions, so beware. "Spamming" will be taken seriously so if you "spam", you will be blocked after one warning until July 2012. This includes:
1. posting irrelevant pictures
2. posting irrelevant videos
Finally, all of you have to know that this is for fun and it is just a game.The purpose is to meet new members, create new friends, and see the personalities of the people around chess.com. It might be a popularity contest, but in the past, I have seen members nominate new members to chess.com who they thought were amazing friends. Feel free to send me personal messages about any ongoing problems. The winner will receive a trophy for winning this month.
It is now April so get ready to nominate! Any questions?
Okay, so much for my homework theory...
This is exciting! I personally haven't figured out who I'm going to nominate, just NOT ciljettu
By the way, should I be wearing a tux or something?
Don't forgeth the helpful & nice pictures.
I nominate whomever explains this month's voting system in easily graspable terms.
Don't worry, the voting will be much simpler. :P
It's sufficient to just be holding the sceptre.
You can't nominate ProKnight.
We can't expunge Tudor!?
No more than you can Richard Nixon.
"Spamming" will be taken seriously so if you "spam", you will be blocked after one warning until July 2012. ...

I'm getting a real mixed message out of this, pK...
Oh yes, and I nominate:
Hilarious! Rather suddenly, CPOTM seems to have misplaced it's purity
He creates a storm of controversy wherever he goes...what better candidate could there be for the title?
That nomination is a frightening addition to the CPOTM lore.
I count twenty-four past winners; will this be s03e01 of CPOTM?
If he wins, pk, you'd better tell him the contest was fair, and that he received an equal number of votes from men and women. Oh, and be nice to him.
I nominate fracklefrit or fricklefrat
