    How come when we try over and over to nominate someone that had been such a great help , they do not get recognized? do you count votes or something else, it only take a glance at their post to see how helpful they always are and have been for a couple years now yet they get passed over for a much deserved award.

    Thank you i am just trying to understand why they are being passed over.

    There are criteria that we use when determining whether to award or not. If someone is nominated for several, for example, we choose the best one. Sometimes other factors will cause a hold or wait on a nomination. Those factors are not for public discussion, however.

    Keep nominating. We do look and research everyone who is nominated.

    Thank you for your reply[​IMG]

    i found this after i made my post so i guess it was not up to us after all when it comes to this particular award. [​IMG]

    1. BYC Educator: This is now a Staff awarded accolade. We have changed this award to reflect only the highest standards. Only those who adhere to the highest standards of knowledge and education will be considered for this award. While nominations will be accepted for this award, the Staff will thoroughly vet each person and only those who meet/exceed the Staff's high criteria will be awarded the Educator Badge. Nominees must, among other points, have a verifiable reputation of providing information more than just "common knowledge," assist members in a positive and courteous manner, be open to feedback without getting defensive, and should maintain their good standing with little disciplinary action for rules violation.
