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 on the forums, a cold hard tungsten carbide prize from Bar and Hannah, and the true meaning of Spindle Automation = 1 will be revealed to you by @AIW!
The approximate weekly schedule is: nominations close no earlier than Saturday, voting Sunday & Monday, announcement Tuesday. 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. There is also a Maslow Community Contributor of the Week for great contributions to the Maslow community, which is run by TheRiflesSpiral; nominations which better fit that award will be forwarded to him.
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.
What do you guys think about a nominate button similar to the “like” button?
Either most nominations clicks could win or some how just allow the nominate button to be clicked once and it will send it to @jwolter post each week. I think I would prefer all of the nominations going to another post because its a nice end of the week recap.
I just see a lot of projects that I would nominate at the time but they slip my mind after reading all of the other posts.
*Edit: Or maybe it creates another Post with a link to the original stating "%Post name%: was nominated for POTW by %user%. New nominations would just append to this weeks post
so for the last poll, is it like rock paper scissors, as without the sled you would not have the other two, without the ring the goat pedestal would not look as good, and the sled would still need its very awesome maths…etc etc Maths wins (like dynamite in rock paper scissors lol haha
These were the most active PotW/CG polls yet, vote-wise. Arichards’ very professional looking Color-Core sign took top honors as the Project of the Week. Meanwhile, in the Community Garden, Bar edged out Bar and, er, Bar for the Community Gardener prize.
