Watcher's Council Nominations

Each week, the members of the Watcher's Council nominate one of their own posts and a second from outside the Council for consideration by other council members in a contest for best post. Historically, the Watcher publishes the results each Friday morning.

We are near to having a permanent replacement for the Watcher in Terry Trippany. We expect he will be taking over that position shortly. Until then, we are shifting the duty among Watcher's Council members with The Glittering Eye picking it up this week. This week's nominations are:
