    Who is worthy of this honor?

    To nominate someone, you must give at least a brief reasoning behind why they should be nominated.

    More rules and policies are below.


    Nominate the best and the brightest!

    From the [H]ard|DCer of the Month - FAQ and [H]all of fame:

    Q: What is the [H]ard|DCer of the Month?

    Q: How do things work?

    Q: What does the winner get as prize?

    Q: Are there any rules for this?

    I would like to nominate MGMCCALLEY - he has been helping the distributed computing cause for years and got me started with the WCG cause a little over a year ago. Just recently he made it to the top 10 for the team in WCG.

    Since WFeather blew it and missed last month, I nominate him to give him another chance this month!

    Someone should go to his house and talk to W.Feather so that he can get his shit talking prepared. It takes him a long time to get ready.

    I'd like to nominate ChelseaOilman for recently adding a Threadripper (second one?) to his BOINC farm and for just killing it on several GPU projects. His consistent efforts are shown in his 4th place overall ranking on the team, as well.

    Did he? I always forget where to look for the past winners. Sorry about that. I just looked at his title here and it doesn't mention any [H]DCOTM wins.

    Thanks. I have finally bookmarked that site.

    So, I'll try this again... I nominate fastgeek for always helping the team with his enormous army when needed. Currently the top producer on the team for the WCG Christmas challenge.

    I am fairly certain he is eligible. If not, I give up..

    Thaks, RFGuy_KCCO. :) Think we switched to the "once per calendar year" policy, didn't we?

    I'll nominate lopoetve for his big push into WCG. :D

    Thanks for the nom. I've got a surprise for the voting thread. I tried raising awareness for the team publicly earlier this year. I'll reveal when the trash-talking starts. Don't want to give it away too early.

    There is no limit to the number of times you can win the monthly award.

    The winner of DCOTM is not eligible again for 12 months from the award. The calendar year has no bearing on eligibility.

    I hope this clarifies the misconceptions in this thread.

    Thank you. I suppose this means fastgeek isn't eligible after all, since he last won in December 2017, which means it has only been 11 months.

    Sorry for all my stupidity and spam in this thread. :confused::banghead:

    Too bad you recently won, otherwise this immense skill at nomming would have earned you a nom!

    But someone who won in December is eligible December of the Following year, right?

    Ah I missed your other reply. I thought that's how it was, but wanted to make sure.

    Okay, cool.

    I have no idea how I misunderstood what you wrote previously. I will just chalk it up to the fact that my state of Michigan recently legalized recreational weed. :D
