Who is worthy of this honor?

To nominate someone, you must give at least a brief reasoning behind why they should be nominated.

More rules and policies are below.

Nominate the best and the brightest!

From the [H]ard|DCer of the Month - FAQ and [H]all of fame:

Q: What is the [H]ard|DCer of the Month?

Every month, the team gets a chance to choose someone they thought contributed greatly to the team, and give them a bit of recognition for it. At the beginning of each month, a nomination thread is held. Here is your chance to nominate whoever you think deserves recognition. Someone can be nominated for any reason. It does not matter if they designed some massive piece of software to help the team in some way, or simply added a few boxen to ramp up their production.

Q: How do things work?

Nominations are held for 10 days starting on the 1st of each month. The nominated people move onto a poll and the Poll will be open for 10 days following the end of the nomination thread. The remaining part of the month is reserved for congratulating the winner and have fun. Same as before, vote for whoever you want, for whatever reaons you want. If there is a tie, a runoff will be held. After the winner is chosen, they are interviewed so the entire team can see what makes them tick.

For the [H]ard|DCer of the Year, there is no nominations thread because the only worthy candidates is the [H]ard|DCer of the Month winners for the current year. The poll to choose a winner is done in 2 steps : The first poll will include all 12 winners for the current year and we select only the best 4 winners which will participate in the next round. If there is a tie in the first 4 ranks, the tie winners will move together. In the second round, the one with the most votes will be declared the winner but if there is a tie, a runoff vote will be held. Each step will last 10 days.

Q: What does the winner get as prize?

Being that there is no cash flow funding the [H]ard|DCer award, there is only so much we can do in the way of prizes The [H]|DCers do not have a physical prize, but thanks to Kyle and the rest of the gang, we still have something to give winners. All winners will receive a custom title showing off their achievement.

Q: Are there any rules for this?

To nominate someone, you must give at least a brief reasoning behind why they should be nominated.


Past winners cannot be nominated until one full year after they last won.

You cannot nominate yourself.

Hard DCer of the Year winners are excluded forever.

Any contestation or question about the nomination thread should be done via PM.

I don't know what to say other than I'm honored to be selected as the [H]ard|DCer of the Month winner for June. Many thanks to all that made this possible.

I've been crunching since 2007 when I discovered this forum. Started with FAH and moved to WCG a couple years later. At one time, themacguy and myself were the main WCG contributors before it became popular with the team. We were supporting a fleet of Dell Inspirons with C2D and Pentium CPUs back then. Good times. Right now, I'm focusing on FAH until WCG is stabilized at Krembil.

I'm running two stock Dell Optiplex boxes 24/7. 990 and 7020 mid towers. Not much production but at least I'm keeping them out of landfills. One GPU would put them to shame!!! Any suggestions for cheap Nvidia GPUs? I'm thinking a 1050ti may work in the 990 with the stock power supply. I don't want to go too crazy. Just something to get familiar with GPU crunching.

Pocatello, I'd like to have my title updated to "[H]ard DCOTM x2" to match the other multiple winners. Much appreciated!

Crunch on everybody ... thanks again!
