Out of Curiosity...
« on: February 02, 2014, 07:02:51 PM »
How are Posts of the Month selected? I mean once you have a group of nominated posts to choose from. Like does every moderator/admin get a vote? Do admins get two votes? Can you vote for more than one, or do we sometimes get more than one POM winner because the vote was split too evenly?

We will never tell you HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!
Quote from: Fr Alexander Schmemann
The Gospel is quite clear: both saints and sinners love God. "Religious" people do not love him, and whenever they can, they crucify him.

Of course, OC.net is not reflective of the Church, but is rather a surreal bubble. I have visited a lot of different parishes around the world and have listened to many hours of AFR...

They told me you wouldn't tell me, but I said, NO! I said oc.net is open and honest. How embarrassed I am, how wrong I was! Shame will be visited upon you unto three generations (of mods) if you do not repent.

If you read a post that you deem worthy to be "post of the month", you have to hit the "report for moderation" button on that post, and state that you nominate it as POM.

That's how the process starts.

If you don't nominate it, it won't get recognized.

Then it sits and simmers in the POM pot for a while....along with all the other POM nominations.

Besides...curiosity killed the cat....probably best to avoid speculating what goes on behind the curtain...

Only a leg and the head of the last moderator who even considered telling have been found.

There are several ex-mods around now (Mike, Cyril, Schultz)... I will have to consider carefully who will be the cheapest to pay easiest to convince that our cause for transparency is just.
