Hello everyone,

First, the staff at MHB wishes to thank everyone who participated in the MHB Awards nominations and voting processes. Without your participation, this would not have been possible. We are now very pleased to announce the outcome of the voting, and we extend our heartfelt congratulations to the chosen winners.

This is our first such awards ceremony, and we will be doing this twice a year from now on, at the end of June and the end of December, each year. The awards badges will be "worn" by the winners for a period of one year.

You will notice that we have created a new stats box to display the forum award badges won by each member. These include the arcade trophies and the MHB Awards badges. Each of these award icons will display the categories to which they pertain by hovering your mouse cursor over them.

We have decided to divide the MHB Awards into three major categories. The award badge icon associated with each of these divisions is shown to the right of the division name. The winners are given below for each category.

1.) Math awards

I wish to extend a HUGE thanks to Jameson for all the work he put into making this happen...from all his efforts in the planning stages, to creating the nominations topics and voting polls, and especially for all the coding he accomplished to get the awards badges to display so nicely (trust me, this was quite a difficult and time consuming task!).

He will probably be embarrassed by this post, for he truly believes this is what an administrator is supposed to do, but we all know this is a rare thing, and we are very fortunate indeed to have him as one of our admins. (Rock)
