You have to better than that to get my vote (not saying my votes really that special).
Can you tell us what he did to keep this board alive? (besides the stuff I read in his replies/threads) Because, like you said, "I know how much he has been working behind the scenes, doing things that nobody notices"... I have someone in mind who has visibly help the board more than him. Stuff that I notice. Stuff that is just as important in keeping this community informed/interesting. Stuff that makes it exciting for me. I don't know what it was like before "05 Feb 2008", so can't say if this board is better and really don't care if it was because I'm looking to a good future here. People come and go, good times, bad times.
If you say to me right now that Frankie B has been the 51% reason this board is here for my enjoyment, and that it wouldn't be here because of him, then I'll vote for him. Because the stuff behind the scenes I don't notice.
I think all people mentioned are worthy, but I have a person in mind that's not him. If I had more evidence otherwise, my mind can change.
PezTech for WW of the yr!
The fact that Pez not only gives (me and you) great info on a lot of bike related stuff, but has also never in a negative/personal way retaliated to another member when attacked (which is a lot). Yes, he has his personal preferences/biases but seems to be open minded enough to make/give good info.
This is a guy who has the mental strength, wisdom and love for cycling I want to represent WW.
I just realized this is in the "Road" section. Maybe the Mods/Admin can move this to "Weight Weenies", or "Cycle Chat" because not everyone here visits the road section.
