Voting is over!
Congratulations to Slhck, the 2011 MVSU! Full contest results are posted on the Super User Blog.
In celebration of Super User's 2nd Anniversary, we are holding a Super User Contest to reward the most active, helpful, and involved members of our community. The grand prize will be awarded to one of you and chosen by all of you. Announcing...
the Most Valuable Super User contest
The MVSU isn't just about reputation earned - it's about how much you've dedicated yourself to the community. Think of the users whose names you see helping the site out every day: editing, flagging, cleaning up, closing bad questions, and of course providing lots of great answers. Statistics are great, but we want you, the users of this site, to choose who you think has had the greatest positive impact on Super User.
There are a few rules, to ensure that users have met certain minimum criteria for what the judges think a Super Duper User ought to be, and to prevent there from being too many submissions to handle. Users must meet these criteria by the end of the competition. You are welcome to nominate a user who does not have all of these things yet, as long as you believe they can in two weeks' time.
At least 5k total rep or 1k rep earned this year.
At least 200 flag weight
Earned the following badges (hover for requirements):
Must be an overall great person to work with, and in good standing
Currently active on the site (must visit and participate at some point during the contest)
Now we understand that you may not be able to view all of the exact statistics, but don't worry — we'll be monitoring each candidate to make sure they meet the criteria and are upstanding internet citizens. This portion of the contest is meant to bring attention to those dedicated users who keep this site running, and may not always get the credit they deserve. They truly are the most Super of Users.
How nominations/voting works
Any registered user may nominate any other user (except for contest judges/♦ mods), providing the candidate meets the above criteria, or likely will by the end of the competition. You may not enter yourself in the competition.
Nominations should be entered as a single answer with the user's name, and a link to their profile. Include their SU image flair so we can get an idea for what they've done. All commentary, endorsements, etc. should go in the comments below the answer. Use this template:
#[Username] [![Username]] : https://superuser.com/users/SUPERUSER_ID : https://superuser.com/users/flair/SUPERUSER_ID.png
The user with the highest vote score (total score,
upvotes - downvotes) at the end of the contest (providing they meet all criteria) will win the Super User Contest Grand Prize. The second and third place Super Users will receive Level 3 prizes. The next 7 runner-ups will receive a Super User t-shirt.
Note that judges/moderators have final say in the contest - any decisions regarding users deemed disqualified are final.
