There are a handful of members who continually contribute positively to threads purely with their generous personal time to make this world a better place. They constantly post useful information and help other make correct decisions. These forum members have behaved in this manner for many posts. Their sole purpose in posting is to make these forums a constant source of reading pleasure. We will call them the Outliers.
I have expended a lot of time reading their posts and have learned a lot, but since they have no self interest, they never bragged about their added value to these forums. If you want to give them the honor they deserve, here is the time to act.
I will keep a count of all the votes of the members here. Each member can vote once. Each member can vote for a maximum of 3 members.
The member with the most votes will receive a $500 Grand Prize, 2nd place member will receive $250 and third place will receive $100.
Expect that this thread will be flagged and deleted by the trolls who do not receive any votes, and will never be recreated by myself, ever.
If you want to help with the votes count, you can copy paste the total votes count posted by the member before you and you can add the names in alphabetic order and update the 3 votes in your next post. I will keep an eye on the total count and update regularly when I have time to. The Prizes will be rewarded on the 1st of July 2017 via Paypal, e-mail transfer, interac, check or whatever each Outlier prefer. A donation amount to a Charity of the Outlier's choice can also be arranged. Of course, by definition, an Outlier cannot vote for himself. Good luck.

"I'll pitch an alternative to you and see what you think, EVolution: you pick 3 charities and we vote to see which one has the greatest resonance with the group. You pick which one you you think merits the donation based on the votes. If anyone else feels so inclined, they may join with their own donation. It puts the focus on the good that you want to do, and thank you for that."
