Kuski of month

From Elma Wiki

The Kuski of month (KOM) was an award that was given out every month, to a deserving player. The winner might have been a merited total-warrior, WR-crusher, webmaster of an acclaimed Elma site, graphics artist or whoever that had driven Elma or done some positive elma-related things in the scene. An interview would be written by the winner and posted on Moposite.

This kuski was chosen by the Elma community in a poll on Mopolauta. Every month there were five candidates to vote on. The candidates were chosen by the Moposite crew; the candidate who got the second-most votes in one month went directly into the next month's poll. Individual organizers of the KOM polls were: Abula, MagnusB, SveinR, dz and Raven, in successive order.

History

The first KOM poll was held in January 2001, and it quickly got popular. The first 14 polls were conducted on the Moposite main page, with no registration needed to vote. It then got moved to Mopolauta, with the first poll there in March 2002. The number of candidates also got changed from 10 to 5. The number of votes on the polls on Mopolauta were a lot fewer than they had been with the old system, and the main reason for this is probably that one person could cheat and vote more than once with the old system.

Initially there was only possible to get the KOM award once, ie. previous winners could not be selected for new polls. This was changed in November 2004, where it was decided that old winners could be eligible to be candidates in new KOM polls after three years.
