1. Please post no more than one nomination for the most knowledgeable member in our first year of the CCF (between April 30th, 2014 at 9:22pm EST and April 30, 2015 at 9:21pm EST).
2. You must explain why you are nominating this member.

4. Any member receiving both a nomination and a second will be included in the final ballot for this award on May 25th.
5. Nominations and Seconds for this round conclude at the end of May 18th.
6. Absolutely NO negative talk about another member, nor another member's nomination. The very purpose of this event is to salute our members and their contributions for all they've added to this community. Though only one member will ultimately receive this award, you have the potential to thank and maybe touch members with anyone you choose to nominate or second. Please don't use this opportunity to hurt or deflate someone.
I'd like to nominate Rob Allen. Rob has displayed tremendous knowledge in a lot of areas in comicdom, especially with his thread on underground comics, and always has something cogent and thoughtful to add when he contributes to a thread.
I logged on, planning to go the Cei-U! route, but as that boat has now sailed, I'm going to go with tolworthy. We don't see enough of him around here, but when he pops in, he always drops some serious knowledge, especially with regard to the Fantastic Four, a work he has toiled endlessly to prove is the Great American Novel. I always learn something from tolworthy's contributions, and I hope that will never change.
Cei-U is the obvious and well deserved nominee here, but in the interests of recognizing others, I'd suggest Phil Maurice, whose knowledge of the Golden Age (witness how great his choices for the cover contest always are) is always welcome.

Dizzy D impresses me with his expertise in a realm of comics I still know woefully little about, with my American-centric experiences. I appreciate his insight into all the comics made on the other side of the world.
