I agree ... how about a locked thread with a link to an online nomination form which requires your user name to avoid duplication.... so nominations are made anonymously and there is no ‘promotion and slander’ of charities in that thread.
@kath72 I was thinking along those lines too, then I happened across your post.
That makes perfect sense to me, all nominations by a certain date, then voting is from one date to another etc etc as you state about.
As a general note, it always warms my heart when the charity nominations come around. It's great that we can make a difference and it's something we (the community) have a say on.
Well done all
