    some have xprsd interest. i hav nominated one (in ABSOLUTE confidence). maybe some have nominated themselves or maybe other mvp's here have nominated some. the results (i think) will be declared in jan 2007 and if selected, the nominee will be contacted directly if he gets the award.

    but i sincerly feel those of u who are interested PLEASE try for it. you may nominate urself or u can pm me; i (or any other mvp here) can consider nominating u. a source tells me the nominee needs to be around 1000 posts old...though its not essential !

    would be great if this forum had one or more MAI awardee's too :)
