Rules (your comment may be deleted if it doesn't follow these):
1. Post the name of your nominated person in the comment's subject. You can nominate someone who has influenced the world in a positive or negative way, in a subtle or overt way, in a purposeful or unintentional way. Remember, the nominated person must be notable on a national or international scale and nonfictional. And no ONTD_P users. ;)
2. In the comment body, include the name of the person you're nominating again and a reason why
Title: Barack Obama
Body: Barack Obama, because he's changing the way America approaches the world
3. Make sure this person has not been nominated yet and submit!
To second/third/forth a nomination, just comment in response. If you like, you can include your personal reason for supporting this nomination. If a thread gets too long it'll be frozen, please use discretion and don't spam the entry -- if it's obvious there have been sufficient nominations then skip it and move on to the next nominee.
I'm not sure what our threshold for successful nomination will be but I'm setting it at five votes for now.
Good luck, thank you for participating, and happy nominating!
