    Battle of the Members 2015 - eleventh edition

    That time of the year again, we've all digested the World Cup (the football fans of CW too a while back), now we go on to vote for a celebration of CW's greatest.

    First off, many thanks to Dan for his sterling work on this in the past two years.

    The list of illustrious previous winners is as follows:

    2005 Neil Pickup
    2006 BoyBrumby
    2007 BoyBrumby
    2008 Samuel_Vimes
    2009 dontcloseyoureyes
    2010 Burgey
    2011 GIMH
    2012 fredfertang
    2013 Jono
    2014 Prince EWS

    I've compiled a list of nominations - to spice it up for this year I wrote a Python script to count posts from some recent tour threads and other threads from the past year.

    Members who have asked to stay out will remain out. Otherwise all posters with 7,500 posts and who passed a cursory and subjective activity check are in.

    That leaves 16 free spots for a straight knockout. As I'm sure this method has missed some noteworthy contributors, please fill them. Each of you can nominate 5 others.

    Good luck to all! #hype
