Note: The last week before Christmas may be a slow time for nominations as people prepare for the holidays. So if we don’t have the nominations, I may hold off this round one week. So post your projects and make your nominations if you’ve got 'em, but more importantly, spend time with friends, family, and yourself. Merry Christmas, Happy Hanukkah, Joyous Kwanza, and Happy New Year to the Maslow community!

Nominations are open for this week’s Project of the Week (PotW) and Community Gardener (CG) awards. You can nominate simply by replying to this thread. Self-nominations are allowed.

The selected project will be highlighted in the Maslow newsletter. The user will receive a “Project of the Week” or “Community Gardener” badge, tungsten carbide goodness from our friends @MakerMadeCNC, and a colorful infographic detailing how @WilliamsDad “Kicks his own starter”.

The approximate weekly schedule is: nominations open right after the previous week’s poll posts, nominations close no earlier than Saturday, voting Sunday through Wednesday, polls close automatically on Wednesday. After nominations from the community have been made, I’ll post a poll for the community to pick a winner. If we don’t get enough nominations, I will randomly select projects from previous weeks’ nominations, the back issues of the Maslow newsletter, Made on Maslow, and of course the Community Garden website to appear in a poll. Projects that don’t win in a poll can be renominated on subsequent weeks. Any project can only win once, but any person can win multiple times.

What makes a PotW? It can be a project (old or new) made on a Maslow CNC that shows off the Maslow’s capabilities, or demonstrates a new way of using the Maslow, or just plain looks cool.

What makes a Community Gardener? It can be anyone who creates or contributes to a project on the Community Garden website (http://maslowcommunitygarden.org/). By posting to the CG, you make the project available to the community and you create the opportunity for other users to improve on your design. Vote however you like, but I hope to encourage collaborative projects.

Final note: like most things here on the forums, the community is what makes PotW/CG successful. Suggestions for improving the PotW/CG and volunteers to help run the thread are always welcome.

I shouldn’t have doubted our community (or Bar’s resourcefulness at finding projects on Instagram)! We have plenty of projects for a poll. So here they are, two polls in which you can vote for up to two projects each. So scroll down and vote in the final poll of the year!

It’s not even Halloween, but my favorite flying mammals, bats, really scored in this week’s polls. The Simple bat house and Didier’s Nesting Boxes for Bats won the Community Gardener and Project of the Week, respectively.

Hello,
My bats and I are very proud to have won the last two awards of the year 2018 on the Maslow forum! In concrete terms, how is this going? do I receive something by mail? I do not remember if I gave an address to Santa Claus or anyone else … Can you give me any information about that?
Thank you,
Didier, from Tous aux abris!

I’m referencing @MakerMadeCNC since they provide the bits as prizes and thus are the right folks to ask.

I’ll be awarding your badges. I’m a little behind on that.
