Topic Awesome Member Award. New. Please Read.

Ok, been working on a new program since it's either that or lay in bed and watch game shows. this one, i'm going to need a little help with from anyone interested. here's a little history and the premise.
I was looking for a way to thank Buz. he's probably one of the nicest guys on lush. he reads stories, gives great comments, offers advice and help, he' a genuinely lovely person to work with, and really, i can't say enough good things about him. while i've been sick he's been sending me daily PMs of encouragement, something that really has made a difference in my life, so i thought, he needs to have a 'nicest guy on lush award'. i wanted to call it The Buz. we're not, for reasons that make a lot of sense, but still, in my head, it's gonna be called The Buz. lol
so, here's how it works. it's a little like the mod of the month, only there's no cash prize. sorry, but that's just not doable. there WILL be a unique badge, and i'll be doing a write up of the person chosen and people can add to that if they'd like.
right now, the project name is "the intangibles award". basically, it's not based on one thing, but i'll be picking (and it's more likely going to be weekly, or bi weekly then it is monthly) someone based on a variety of things. what they add to the site, be it inspirational, generous, helpful, funny, thoughtful, etc. i just thought it would be a nice way to give back to a lot of people who make lush what it is - there's a lot of you out there.
just so you know, it's not going to be mods, btw. we have our own thing. that's not what this is all about. hopefully, this will be taken in the spirit that it's meant to be.
now... i need a little help from all of you. first, i need a good badge name. i thought about Spirit, but that's too close to my user name, and this is not all about me, so i tossed that. Tangerine sounds a bit like Intangible, but might be a bit too.... fruity. so please, post or PM suggestions and i'll give credit to whoever comes up with the best name.
secondly, i have a list of people i think deserve it, and it's pretty solid, but eventually, i'll run out of names and while i keep an eye on things, i do miss stuff. also, i'm trying to avoid favoritism. so... if you think someone deserves this, PM me with their user name and a short write up of what they bring to Lush so i can put them on my radar. i don't want someone slipping through the cracks simply because i don't run in the same circle. i don't do chat rooms, for instance, and there are probably some great people who make those a positive experience.
this will probably kick off sometime this week or this coming weekend - i need to get Gav off his lazy ass to create a new badge, after all. i swear to god, the man does nothing around here but eat and fuck. *sighs*
hopefully, this will be fun - i know i'm looking forward to it.
Actually ... often the first ideas can be the best... and as I share your opinion of Buz why not keep it ... as the "BUZ Award"... or just "BUZ" ... with that awesome blue background.
Whatever you do not everyone will agree... but it's a neat thought.
