If you would like to participate in the nomination process for future Microbadge of the Month contests, or simply be notified of their creation, please subscribe to New Microbadges Available for Purchase (and other Microbadge Events) Subscription Thread.


Contest fine print:
If a tie exists at the end of the voting period for the top position, we will feature a small poll (to run for a week) to decide the winner.

Also, please remember that eliciting votes for badges, either public or privately, is not allowed. Please do not advertise one specific microbadge or designer; let votes fall where they may, honorably!

Any situation against the rules or not identified will be dealt with by the Microbadge of the Month committee (currently garion, zorro_jv, Schwartzkopf and wildthayne). The committee's word is final, but they're all quite friendly and won't bite your hand off. At least, not unless provoked.

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
