I'm sure they are. There should be a better way to judge who is best than a popularity contest where whoever has the most members wins.

Not always, most of it is down to promotion.. So promote away, some boards who have tons of members dont always win because some of the members don't vote. :D

I agree which is why I really don't get too excited about them. No one that votes really looks at the other boards (ok, maybe 5% do). They go and vote for the board they are a member of. Not sour grapes, it's just the way it is.

Re: RDS 2011 BotY Thunder & Lightning Finals


Have you noticed that when the Microsoft Groups communities were running only 8% to 10% of the memberships were active and actually posting?
This seems to be the case with Runboard too. Therefore a large membership means very little.

Nanny, I'm unfamiliar with "stroppy", does it mean "scrappy" (troublemaker or Troll)?

Re: RDS 2011 BotY Thunder & Lightning Finals


Stroppy

Presented by Kel Richards

A NewsRadio listener has asked me for the meaning and origin of the word stroppy. The meaning is simple enough, anyone who is “bad-tempered and easily offended or annoyed” is said to be stroppy.

stroppy began life as a jokey abbreviation of the word “obstreperous”

I had always thought of this as being a good old Aussie word. After all, when Paul Hogan appeared on television all those years ago his mate, played by John Cornell, was called “Strop” – short, I assumed, for stroppy. But I was wrong. It’s not an Aussie word – but a bit of British slang from the 1950s (the earliest citation is from 1951). And stroppy began life as a jokey abbreviation of the word “obstreperous”. Someone who is noisy and refusing to do what is asked of them is said to be obstreperous. Jonathan Green (with his usual encyclopedic knowledge of slang) explains that “obstreperous” was first given the deliberate comic mispronunciation of “obstropolous” – and then “obstropolous” was shortened to stroppy.
