Knowledge is the solution
Well, the exclusive condition is what makes New member of the year worth it. It all stems back from the necessity of treating our new members well, and give them incentives them to be more and more regular. Formers candidates *ARE* excluded from new member of the year since they are now regular and have decent chance at being a member of the year. Think of it as the ¨newbie of the year" award in many sport and art events.new member 2007 and member 2007 are the same, with only an unnecessary exclusion condition. in case anyone forgot or anything.
