Past year we skipped the Microbadge of the Month contest from May to December. We would retrieve those contests in order to have the Microbadge of the Year 2012 contest to be held by summer. So this is the Microbadge of the Month nomination thread for October 2012.

If you want to check the current (Ma rch2013) Microbadge of the Month contest, jump to the Best Microbadge of the Month contest (March 2013) thread

If you want to know when new microbadge contests and events are created, suscribe to the New Microbadges Available for Purchase (and other Microbadge Events) Subscription Thread thread

DISCLAIMER: It's imposible for me to know when exactly one microbadge was approved. I have compiled an aproximated list of badges that where aproved each month, but its possible that some badges are put into the month next or previous to the one they truly belong. We have to cope with that. If you want to check all the badges from may to december 2012, go to Microbadges approved since May. If you find that one of your purchasable badges approved from May to December 2012 is not listed in any month, please geekmail me so i can fix it. But i will no reasign badges from one month to another, we will have to live with 'flexible' month for the remaining microbadge of the month contest for 2012

So here we go:

Best Microbadge Design of the Month
October 2012


Nominations are OPEN!

In order to have a microbadge design of the month poll, and due to the large number of microbadge designs that are approved every month, we have to trim the list to a manageable number. That's where YOU come in, by nominating your favorite microbadges of the month. The microbadges with the most nominations will be in the running for the award.

In a nutshell
Simply reply to this post stating which are, in your opinion, the 10 best microbadges approved during the past month. You can pick any badge listed below in the eligible badge list. Of the 10 microbadges that you nominate, up to a maximum of 2 can be your designs. You are more than welcome to tell everybody why you picked those 10 badges.

The top 5 to 12 microbadges with the most nomination points will advance to the final round and be in the running for the best microbadge design of the month award and the winning badge's designer will get a shiny new mb!

You have until Monday, 2013-04-22, midday GMT, to post your nominations.
(that's 12:00, i.e., in the middle of the day, near lunch time).

Which badges should you nominate?
Well, that's entirely up to you. Base your decision on the badge's image and/or its mouseover, and decide which badges are worthy of being in the running for the badge of the month award!

Please do not nominate any badges simply because you like the microbadge's designer, you like the game the badge depicts or any such reason. Your nominations should be based solely on the badge's inherent qualities, not on anything else.

Which badges can be nominated?
Any badge listed below, which includes the microbadges approved during the past month.
- you may only nominate up to 2 microbadges that you designed yourself;
- the badge must be buyable (i.e., award badges are not eligible);
- the badge must be a new design (i.e., unhidden badges are not eligible).

What happens after the nominations end?
The top 5 to 12 (with 8 being the optimum number) nominated badges (the ones with the most votes) will be featured in a poll to determine the "Microbadge of the month"! The poll will run during the full extent of the month and the winner announced in the subsequent month.

The designer of the winning badge will be awarded a special microbadge and get any tips the contest receives. If the winning badge's designer has already won the contest in the past, a special microbadge could be awarded. Furthermore, the winning badge will be in the running for microbadge of the year award (the runner-up and third place might also be in the contest, complete rules are still pending)!

In the event of any ties for the top place, there will be a smaller poll with just the tied badges. That poll will run for a week. If the top 5 to 12 nominated badges cannot be determined due to too many ties in the nominations, a small poll will be conducted here in order to see which badges advance to the final round.

Anything else?
Not really. Any situations that are not identified will be dealt with by the Microbadge of the Month committee (currently garion, wildthayne, and me). The committee's word is final, but they're all quite friendly and won't bite your hand off. At least, not unless provoked.

Please do not edit your nominations after posting them (you can edit them within a hour or so, but not much later than that, thanks).

In my contry is not unusual to see mother breastfeeding her babies in public, so it was pretty natural to include a breast to depict breastfeeding (and the original image the mb is based on was lovely) - no joking intended at all.

The science of history is a great bulwark against the stream of Time; in a way it checks this irresistible flood, it holds in a tight grasp whatever it can seize floating on the surface and will not allow it to slip away into the depths of oblivion
