Many people here in the PL and OL section do not exactly have a lot of reps, despite providing a great deal of quality information. To remedy that, following a conversation with Iron619, people can be nominated to receive reps for being an outstanding contributor to this section of the board. They must meet the following criteria:
1. Been a member for at least three months.
2. Have less than 1000 reps.
3. Be nominated, then seconded by at least two additional people.
4. Have a minimum of 500 posts.
5. Nomination must include links to five posts that meet the criteria.
6. At least four of the five links must come from the PL or OL section.
A person's posting history should have a significant bearing on their nomination. If someone has been a disruptive influence, then they should not be nominated until they contribute without getting threads closed, starting flame wars, etc. In other sections of the board there have been threads of this nature, and I have used them to get a couple of people repped, and I was repped for contributing to the workout programs sections. However, it is past the time we started taking care of our own.
At least five links to posts must be provided, no links, no reps. Please post all links and nominations, seconds, etc. in this thread.
One person will be repped following a review of the nominations from the previous week. There has been a change in the rep status of mods. Anyone being repped from this point forward will receive a rep from one mod only.
Edited to add: (idea stolen from Forge) if 75% of their posts are in the misc, forget it. While there may be some exceptions, do not count on it. The goal is to recognize people who put forth effort in this area of the board.
First person to be repped will probably occur a week from Monday.
Note: The limit on one person per week is to actually have the recognition mean something. This, IMO, means more than little green dots, but they are all I can really think of too offer. Also, if someone is nominated during a week but does not get repped, feel free to nominate them again.
We have some very good posters here in all areas: PL'ers, OL'ers, and Strongmen, and those who have continued to make a solid and positive effort to provide quality information in an adult manner should be recognized for it.
Questions can be posted in this thread, or PM'd to me as copycatting this thread from the workout programs section was my idea, so you know who to complain to if you do not like it.
Best of luck,
