    Who was it that did all that fancy spreadsheet stuff for the 3,000,000 th post? Was it Aczlan??

    What say we ask someone with those skills if they would be in charge, open a thread for nominations, let the candidates write a paragraph or 2 and let tbn vote by pm to whoever is doing the spreadsheet.

    Maybe come up with our 2 or 3 top choices and then EA can pick the final person as who best fits their need.

    I like the idea, but I would recommend that we have the nominations in one thread, then link to a poll (I setup a proof of concept here: Doodle: Test Voting for TBN ) and at the end of the voting period, the results are released.
    That would be less work to manage than counting PMs.
    Alternatively, Muhammad could create a poll in the thread to do the same thing.

    See that's why we pay you the big bucks Aaron, I knew you would know a good way to do it! Would you be willing to take it on? It would probably mean you couldnt be nominated to be the guniea pig but I will buy you a EA hat(if they make them) or send you a tungularafishcamp hat for your trouble.

    Here are my thoughts on the details/steps:
    1. EA posts the attachment that they have in mind (or, better, a "your choice of these 3 attachments") as the start of a nomination thread (the main reason being that if someone already has a backblade, they may not be as interested on building one as they would be to make a boxblade or a landplane)
    2. Make a "Nomination period" of 2-3 weeks where people can be nominated (or can nominate themselves) to be in the poll by posting in the thread from step 1
    3. Close the nominations and put in a link to the poll with all of the options (perhaps actually close the thread?)
    4. Have a 1-2 week period where people vote on the nominations (the Doodle poll could work, but the voters would have to use their screen name in order to validate their vote)
    5. Whoever runs the poll closes it and posts the results (either to here, or via PM/email to EA)
    6. EA announces the winner
    7. The winner builds from the kit with copious amounts of pictures posted to TBN

    Does this seem fair to all interested?

    Thanks
