    It might be nice to have some awards for posts which help members to save or make money for themselves, such as:

    Tip Of The Month (perhaps something more jazzy like Moneyspinner Of The Month might sound better)
    Deal Of The Month
    Coupon Of The Month

    If someone goes out of their way to research and post in detail about a new and especially lucrative money-making scheme, it might be nice to present them with The JL Award, in memory of the legendary JL who kindly shared so much with the Rpoints community. I think this should be a high accolade, awarded only very rarely for the very best contributions.

    Why not have a member of the year competion ?

    Would New Rpoints consider putting up a small cash prize of say £10

    My vote would go to Kev

    I'll 3rd that, but possibly need a higher prize money as MOTM is £25 so wouldnt one expect MOTY to be considerably more?

    I'll 4th it but agree the MOTM comp does need sorting. The winner needs the money to a) buy in the sales and b) pay the credit card bill that will be coming ere long
