- #577053Let us not interfere in the selection process of TOW awards. Let us maintain status quo. The TOW Editors are doing a fine job. According to me, you have won the maximum TOW awards, to be proud. I do not think voting will help to select the best TOW. Afterall, who would vote? It is Mohan, Kailash, Partha, Sun and very few other members only. Many members may not go through the threads for the sake of voting. Where is time for it? Sorry, I am not for it.

- #577057The existing system is alright. Let the editors take the decision as usual. In general, I find their decisions fair. They have to take decisions in the overall interest of the website. It has always been a policy in almost all organizations to encourage sprouting talent instead of going on nurturing the fully grown up trees. I have always maintained, in case two different entries are found of comparable quality, then the younger one i.e. the thread raised by the newer member should be rewarded so as to motivate him/her.
Regarding voting, there are generally only a few members who remain online in the Sunday evening. The perception of each voter may be different. The voting will create utter confusion and moreover that is not required also.
I have noticed that novelty of thoughts is being recognised in the TOW contest instead of old stale thoughts of repetitive nature. Such novel ideas come either by a fresher or by those members who keep on refreshing their thoughts by continung studies from other resources.
Let us encourage each other in sharing knowledge.
- #577058Mr. Mohan, there is no doubt that voting will bring more transparency. But do the Members read all the Forum threads to judge the threads? At least, I can't read all the threads. As for example, I could not read the award-winning thread (of this week) of Mr. Kambhampati. I missed it completely. I have read it only today after announcement of the TOW award. So, I have doubt whether voting system can select best threads, or not.

- #577085I am not at all doubting the sincerity of the editors in announcing the awards, but somewhere they are missing good threads which were eligible but missing the bus.
