    They have said they will get back to it once the site is working better.

    Just trying to help out.

    As much as I miss CotM, I appreciate the focus on fixing the site's fundamental issues first. (Also it gives me time to work on my campaign!)

    They could have the "small council" pick it, and that way they wouldn't have to do any work.

    Hmm, interesting idea SkidAce - I'll peek into this a little more and see what all would need to be done for the Council to actually get this rolling again before I would be able to myself.

    Have there been any nominations recently? I know back when my campaign won it, someone here had nominated it on the forums and that brought the attention of it to Jerry.

    Perhaps a forum topic should be created and stickied for nominations from the community.

    I used to nominate campaigns regularly to Jerry, and many did win. I would recommend making sure the process is included on the campaign page- at least a link to it.
    It would also help if the campaign page was not still empty of systems too, of course.

    Just trying to help out.

    I'll probably be looking for ways to streamline this process when we roll it back out again. My initial thoughts are something like this:

    Consolidate the Fan buttons on the Front Page to just one button (it can show the count and be used to Fan the page), and replace one of those with a Vote button. This would allow someone logged in to place a vote for a campaign each month, granting one vote per month that resets each month. We could then more easily manage voting for this and have it properly integrated into the site at large.

    We would still need to do a form for the CotY voting, but that is perfectly fine by my book.

    Just know that there has been blatant cheating on COTY, and I would expect the same on CoTM. I think the previous suggestion of the council, final word Alex, being a better plan.

    I was not aware of this, thanks for bringing it up.

    I didn't notice the cheating, I guess I dwell in my own little world...

    But I still think the council is a better idea. They can look, review, establish criteria, use judgement and discretion.

    Cheating? Really? I never noticed that either.

    I think its actually kinda sad that anyone would stoop to cheating for it too, especially since all the COTM are always such wonderful examples of just what you can do with OP

    I know, for me and my players, winning COTM was a wonderful feeling. We all felt privileged our little campaign had won such accolades from our fellow gamers. When we got COTY, it surprised all of us, especially me. I know I expected two other COTM to beat us out (and in fact, voted for one of them because I felt it was superior to my own site, though, no, I'm not returning the title or the trophy :) )
