First, it should be noted that enrollment in TMF is a prerequisite for participating in and enjoying the AJ caption contests (the links and participant responses are only available here). As a result, they bring guests here both out of curiosity and a desire to laugh. That is why AJ is an asset not only to the members of the HURL community but to TMF as well. (It should be pointed out that AJ also contributes to a number of other boards where he appears to be respected - esp. in the area of photography.)

Second, links to external boards are a VERY common practice across TMF boards -- almost to the point where I suspect it would be hard to find ANY board without them. In fact, some boards such as HWTSC have hardwired links with hints, tips, "what to do" instructions, etc.

I've been a part of the boards for years, have followed the Feste nominations for years, and never, never, never, never, have the nominations for the Feste award consisted of "go to this link elsewhere." They have all consisted of discussions here on the boards.

If you think that averagjoe should be nominated for, and is deserving of, the award, then please have the courtesy to offer links where "Learning Together" and "To Educate, Amuse & Enrich" are displayed on the boards, rather than AveragJoe's own website.
