Oops! Sorry I jumped the gun. That's the problem with stream of consciousness thinking. Just pull my fingers off the keys.

Marj captured the idea behind this very well. It is meant to be fun , first and foremost. The idea is to acknowledge people for what they contribute to the forum and to dogs in general. No one should be hurt by not being nominated. We do a lot of the things we do, not because we expect to be rewarded , but because it makes us feel good. The idea is to say thank you , you are appreciated and I would like to nominate you for making a difference. Rewards are a part of everyday life. We are rewarded and not rewarded every day. And I think it is important to be rewarded because it keeps us doing what we do, whether this reward is a trophy or the smile on a dog's face. This is why I believe in positive reinforcement based dog training . It inspires the dog to want to do the things you expect of him.
Marj and I still have some things to work out and I want to thank her for all her input into this idea. It wouldn't be possible to do this without someone as motivated as her. Let's keep this fun.

Ditto! Life is too full of seriousness, we NEED more fun and light-heartedness to help balance it out
