Personally... I think a "solo of the month" COMPETITION would be a GOOD idea. *
I think it'd boost the overall moral of the forum.
However, I think the judge idea would be bad. *I think the forum members should be allowed to vote at their leisure for who they think is best. *Votes can be tabulated by either a moderator, Glen, or a volunteer. *
I don't know what the winner could get, maybe just their name written in big leaders in the "headlines" scrolling banner would be enough recognition.
If the contest is only held once monthly and all active Jemsite members are allowed to vote (once per person of course) then I doubt it'd turn into a battle.
