. . . we should have The Find of All Time Awards . . .

Since 2014 has started and has its first winner, the FOAT would have to come the day after the end of the December 2014 contest but before any entries were placed in the January 2015 contest. If you want to get real technical, the FOAT contest would have to wait until the end of time, plus 1 second, to make sure we got them all.

Now we could do a FOTD (Find of the Decade), 2010 to 2019, 5 years from now.

And then there is the FOTC, Find of the Century, in 86 years so long as we can find some member's grandchild to run the contest, and the nomination topics until then. The contestants would be the winners of each of the 10 FOTD contests.

And then, we could just leave it the way it is. I hate waiting for anything  . . .  8)


Well then, maybe it's time for the Find of the Week, Find of the Day, ...   ::)

Christian, it would be tough to pick that FOAT winner plus the long wait till the end of time. In the meantime you can take it upon yourself to sens a gift to all the winners ;D

According to my count, it would only take four months till we get around to FOAT, if we tread backwards until we hit FOTY for the first year FOTM was introduced (2010, I believe).
