okay... let me see if I get it all, you can't nominate yourself, someone else has to stand up for you first. Good idea! Now, if you get nominated for a FOTM vote for January, and you don't win...you cannot be renominated until March. And if you win, you can't be renominated until next January in the following year!... hmm
why not... with so many vehicles to pick from....
have it so that you can only be nominated ONCE every three months!!!
and once you win FOTM, that's it your OUT FOR GOOD!!!
Each winner of the FOTM goes against each of the other monthly winners for the FOTY - who in turn wins money or a gift or the COVER OF THE FOTM CALENDER!!!!
yeah... FOTM each get the month they won, with the FOTY getting the cover (Which could be a different picture than the one used for the monthly photo... MEGA bragging rights!!! Even specially done pics for some of the magazines!!!!
ooh and another thing...I seem to see that these votes aren't just for the vehicles,,,we are apparently also voting for the owner/builder too?! I'm not saying that voting for someone because you like them is bad, but is this a popularity vote on the rig or the owner? Or both? Are their unwritten criteria... as in WINK WINK, nudge nudge?
what happens if owner is awesome - bronco is a turd!
or the flip side owner is a turd - bronco is awesome!
how do we vote, or is it we all vote our own way and let the chips fall where they may?
I'm not criticizing... I just want things explained. I know that this is all good natured fun, and that we are all just trying to get along, but being a noobie here - I can't help but feel that I might step on a few toes as I make my way through! And the last thing I want are all of the old timers (you know - I've got a million trillion posts and I been here since just after the war in '45, so shut yer mouth you noobie scum!!) getting cranky over some new guy with new ideas or positions...
case in point... most of the guys who post...they have massive rigs with solid front axles and lift kits and mud whomper tires and talk about climbing mountains!!! I see very little in the way of lowering trucks or streeting trucks. And the few posts I have come across where the guy wants to know about lowering ride heights or something like that....usually gets flamed or laughed at.
anywho... just my .02, cause I ain't worth much more.
