Well yeah, as far as I know the original idea of Spotlight A Freshie was to give those freshies a chance to introduce themselves who haven't won FOTM award yet, because people simply didn't know them that well. So it was kind of an alternative, you know. It didn't turn out quite that way, except for some spotlighted freshies including the unknown me But blahh I don't think there is anyone to blame, because yes Mike is right, the "unknown members" don't ask questions much. For example, have you seen Samir asking a question from someone? No. So he can't be spotlighted either, although I would really like that!!!
I agree, that some people that have been spotlighted are already more known than most members, but... we can't really throw a line between "known" and "unknown". It is what it is, and soon we will run out of members to spotlight anyway! So I believe everyone that asks questions WILL get spotlight... the only question is when!?.
So yeah, I agree that it was supposed to be for "less known members", but it didn't turn out quite this way and there is noone to blame on that.
