Time for a break!

Whew!
We’re in the home stretch now!

Last year, we had a Most Suffering Monzonaut poll, but rather than repeat that this year, I wanted to focus more on recognising good, quality engagement and involve the rest of the community in that, too.

Engagement from both Monzo and the wider community is the driving force behind what makes this a great place to hang out. To that end, I’ve decided to include a couple of polls for some competitive fun to highlight and honour those who go above and beyond with their engagement to keep things interesting, welcoming, fun, and helpful for all of us.

For an objective shortlist, I’ve selected the folks who are in the top two of our annual leaderboard for:

  • :hot_coral_heart: Received
  • :hot_coral_heart: Given
  • Topics Created
  • Replies Posted

Please vote for the Monzonaut and Community member whose engagement you think has, overall, been the most helpful, most fun, most interesting, and elevated your experience. Votes will be hidden on these polls. :blush:

Remember, this is intended as a bit of fun and isn’t a super serious popularity competition to be won at all costs. And @AlanDoe is not allowed to weaponise the ban hammer as a bribe for votes.


9. Monzonaut of the year


10. Contributor of the year


Phew! That’s it!

I’ve almost certainly forgotten something (I’m not nearly as exhaustive as Peter), so tell me what that is below :point_down:

Happy Holidays and Pleasant Polling! :christmas_tree: :santa:

*Plushies all-around! If Monzo fancy being a little less Grinch now they’re profitable. Or maybe even a forum badge? Monzo? :pleading_face:






Okay. One more. A bonus poll.

I am genuinely finding this the most difficult review poll ever to make decisions on! So many people have knocked it out of the park this year…

Are we all going to abstain from voting in 10 and provide write-in votes for ourselves? No? Just me? I’ll get my coat… :sweat_smile:

I think the most difficult category is clearly number six, best community moment. I’ve already changed my vote there three times. :grimacing:

How did we find the top community members/likes etc?

I admit I haven’t checked out my own stats but I just did and fascinating to see who I reply to the most/like the most/get liked by the most!

You can see your own if you tap into your profile and scroll down

There’s a way somewhere to see it all globally but unsure how exactly
