In 2012 we launched the Mists of Pandaria Guide Contest. The contest wasn't a success by any stretch of the imagination, in fact we had only one qualifying entry amongst several incomplete ones.
The sole entry, Stede's & Company's MoP Shuffling Spreadsheet, was a home run. We wanted to reward Stede for his work, but felt that a contest result post would be underwhelming, so we came up with something a little different: Member of the Month (MOTM).
Every so often, we'll shine the spotlight on members that have gone the extra mile to help out the community. Stede is a perfect candidate, having authored several gems such as his spreadsheet and Glyph Optimization Thread. Stede actively maintains a blog hosted here on Stormspire.net: Venture, LLT. He is also a notable host of the Call to Auction Podcast.
For his efforts, he has been awarded the jaw-dropping Kresky figurine!
We have a huge lineup of members that just can't be thanked enough, so look for more MOTM posts in the months to come!
