This is the official nomination thread for "Best Newcomer".
The thread will be left open in perpetuity with an annual cut-off date of each year's Bogies.
It's helpful to include reasons with your nominations, but not necessary.
A Newcomer is defined as anyone who joined within 18 months prior to the cut-off date for nominations for the relevant Bogie (usually the cut-off date will be in August or September). So eg for the 2007 Bogie, the person must have joined after February 2006. The reason for the 18 months is to make sure that someone joining in say late July doesn't miss out on a nomination just because it was too soon for them to be noticed in one year but too late to nominate them in the following year.
You can't get nominated for this Bogie if you've won it in a previous year.
Nominations for Bogies 2007 start on page 3.
I'm going to jointly nominate Jason R and 574M........
