Parham is the road to madness. All that pointless arguing. Best to stick to CPOTM

Well I did notice is anagram of '' Ha ! Ramp !! ''

That in itself is cause for concern...

Voting is now over! By a vote of 8-2, AnnaZC, congratulations, you are still in the running for CPOTM! joeydvivre, I'm sorry, but you are eliminated.

Now we are currently following  step number four of the voting rules from the first post. There will be another competition for Head of Nominees, but it will be through a series of questions sent to the remaining list members. The list member with the most questions correct will be the new HON. 

Current list members:

AnnaZC

This month, I might try asking list members multiple choice questions through chat and they will have only a few seconds to respond. Do you guys think there is any drawback to this?

lol :D

If I send questions through chat, I first have to be their friends, then the questions would be something like:

Who was the first world champion?

a) Steinitz

b) Lasker

c) Anand

d) Euwe

The list member would respond with either a, b, c, or d. I guess you can say it's kinda like the chess.com trivia questions. This time, the questions will be more related to chess.

Don't hold us in suspense. What's the correct answer??

You could also ask a much more difficult question, like

Who is the current Chess World Champion?

a, the one ranked at 4th

b, the one ranked at 6th

c, the one ranked at 22nd

d, Uhura
