Ok here's another suggestion for a monthly contest thing. How about at the end of each month every member looks through the critiques they have received and PMs one of the admins with the name of the user who gave them the most useful crit. Then the user who most people PMed as the giver of their most useful received crit wins an amount of points for the month. I think no one should be able to win twice in a row though.
This might be a nice way of getting people to crit. more and also encouraging the people who try to make their crits useful. Tell me what you think

I like this idea. It probably won't make me give any crits, but maybe it will?

Umm...

-shrug- I like the idea, that's all.

Yeah, thank me. You're one of the most prolific critters on this site. If I were to pick someone for this award now and today, I'd pick you.

And it's pretty obvious why ....

Also one of the most prolific sources of cool ideas. I think this is one we should definitely do!

This is going to keep me up all night with trying to fill up my crit meter, but hey...worth the shot.
