Quarter Blender Program (in General)
So. First, I'd just like to say this is just all in good fun.
Anyway, I was voting in Shade's poll, and it got me thinking. If we changed the QB program to be semiannual or annual, then the name would no longer really apply.
I was just wondering what some of you might change the name to, if it were up to you. ;p

Why would we change the name? It does sound nice, Quarter Blender.

I won the popularity contest, of course. And we should switch all current QB titles to that. Just so we're being honest :P
Oh, I wasn't actually suggesting we change the name. I like the name. ^_^
But, technically, it wouldn't be a "Quarter" Blender anymore, since it wouldn't be every 3 months. So I was just wondering what everyone could come up with if we ever did change the name, hehe. It's just a "what if" type post.
I guess when you look at it that way, this could be considered an off topic post.

I came second in the vote my time around and I think it was Barzoo who came second in his.

nice dudemus, the Kool Kids Klub (KKK)

Wouldn't that make it the CKC?
well biblender sounds metrosexual and triblender sounds a little too adventurous in my opinion.

I think the only time the community had a problem with the most "popular" person not being named QB was Sefton.
And that was rectified the next Quarter.
And while some think it is nothing more than a popularity contest let me ask this:
Is not being a QB being popular? And how does one become popular? By being helpful, friendly, and contributing to the community. But.. Is that not what a QB is? I think they go hand in hand.
This chat of it being a popularity contest is so true. And that is what being a QB is.
Of course if your Ranger and everyone hates you, you just have to get QB before they see who you really are :)

"Is not being a QB being popular? And how does one become popular? By being helpful, friendly, and contributing to the community. But.. Is that not what a QB is? I think they go hand in hand."
I agree with you there. I have never had to vote on a QB, but I find them all to be quite helpful and kind. Even though they are quite "popular."

I think we all agree I deserve the QB title.
That's what this post is about, right? I didn't really read.

I'd rather be a Sir instead of a QB.
Knight of the Realm > Quarter Blender, in my opinion.
seriously now, if a program was implemented, i would rather see either it go all the way to the community. people could get kudos or whatever when they post in a helpful manner. over time these could add up and just do something simple like change the color of their name with a certain color being the culmination. there would be no real way of dissing on someone, just not giving them kudos.
likewise, if we had a much more involved dev team or an easy forum where all the admins and chat ops could discuss. have them pick someone who they think excelled in a given time frame.
trying to do both is cumbersome and frustrating when the community butts heads with the admins.
Hasn't been a Knight of the Realm in a brace of days...

I don't really see anyone that has the title, that clearly doesn't deserve it, so call it what you will, but it seems to have served it's intended purpose.
As for my suggestion, I'll reiterate what I said in comments, since it's already called QB, leave it at three months, but if no one deserves it don't give it to anyone.
>I came second in the vote my time around
Yes, yes you did... who was it that came in first that time?

I don't know about you guys, but Semester Blender or Annual Blender just doesn't have the same ring to it.
Keep it buried. It's better this way.

Just get rid of it.
