Nominations are open for this week’s Project of the Week (PotW). 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” badge on the forums, a prize from Bar and Hannah, and free admission to the FIRST Robotics Competition Championship events in Houston and Detroit in April.
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 both the Maslow newsletter and Made on Maslow to appear in a poll of at least three projects. 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.
I am going to try something different this week. Based on a community suggestion, and to celebrate the opening of the community garden website, I will have a special category for projects from the community garden.
What makes a PotW? It can be a project 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.
Final note: like most things here on the forums, the community is what makes PotW successful. Suggestions for improving the PotW and volunteers to help run the PotW thread are always welcome.
