Thanks, Rick. We're excited to recognize our members more officially and all the great contributions they make.

Just to clarify for any confusion, we'll announce a winner each month, around the time of the mid-month newsletter. That winner will be determined by the previous 30-days of "helpfulness" which is mid-month to mi-month.

So there won't be any overlap of winners, but it will be a mid-month announcement.

Only new reviews or will updates count?

When you click "Yes" it credits the overall review for being helpful (not the update alone). So, if the initial review was written in the last month the review will be in the running for "review of the month," otherwise we're looking at first-time reviews written in the past month.

Still, updates certainly make reviews more helpful and are great additions. So we'll think about that aspect too and how to recognize it.

Thanks for bringing it up.

Quick update, after doing some thinking.

To keep things simple we'll honor the most helpful rated review of the last full month. So this month (February), we'll honor the review(s) rated most helpful for January 1-31.

Starting in early March we'll honor the reviews rated the best from February 1-29. And so on.
