There used to be a feature called BoTD - Blog of the day. Should that or some similar feature be brought back?
Yes. Bring back BoTD.5%1
No. That was misused - with New fake IDs rating BoTD.9%2
No. But similar feature should be back to encourage members.45%10
No. But some prize should be announced for good blogs and encouraged for their effort.27%6
No. But high time Moderator took some initiative and infused some enthusiasm among members.9%2
My idea that Moderator can consider is ........ in comments.5%1

On the place of Blog of the day, member of the day will be better.

Very good suggestion!
And this will be effective too if some members are made into a group (without revealing who they are) and are appointed to choose the member whose blogging was the best on that day. They can choose the next day and announce.
Then everyone will show interest in answering others queries or new members questions and participate in a more involved manner.

Right now, someone who gets some pic of a LHB rake gets so many ratings and his post appears on "Popular blogs" list. But the ones who are helpful and post good posts / replies are never recognised. This is the way to do it and encourage all.

I am conducting this poll with the intent of bringing Moderator's attention to what I see as a lack of enthusiasm among members. Some sort of constant recognition and encouragement would be good and keep the members interested and involved in IRI.
Please vote and give your suggestions too.

My idea is that Moderator can consider member who are best for the day in following activities
1. Most Active Member in respect of login time.
2. Most Contribution Member in terms of Blogs,Poll,Tips,Timeline.
3. Best Video of the day in terms of blog view.
Best Pic of the day in terms of blog view and so on.

    There has recently been a lot of frustration among RFs when their Station Pics, Loco Pics, Train Pics get rejected because the "number is not showing", "shed is not visible", the loco/train is at a distance, Train Board is too small, "better pic available", etc. . To address this issue, effective tomorrow, ALL...
