What about members with multiple rides?
I've won FOTM, and was a close second for FOTY, does this mean that the rig I'm currently building can't do the same??

Another thought ....

when there is a tie, instead of just continuing with the votes for a few days, would it work better to start a new poll with just the two tied nominees for a few days or so?! not sure, but that seems to be the way that most tied events work well.

No offense meant... I was just tossing out ideas. The current way is okay but in the future... when we got like a million people on board, will things always remain the same? I hope not, all things that live must grow. Just like our Broncos :))))

Something wicked this way comes....

What about have voting on the 10 nominees the first 3 weeks and take the people from the top 3 and let every one vote on those 3 (or 4 if its close) during the last week? The first 3 weeks would be kind of like a primary.

Then again I could save my vote until last in case of a tie and the person who sends me a sixer gets my vote. Or if its a one vote difference I could tie it up . . . this could be fun . . .

i think that if the FOTM voting thread was also in the Gen Chit Chat..... area that it would recieve more votes due to more people participating in that area of the website. I think it would be worth a try for a month or 2, if it doesnt work, then dont do it again

How can one compete against moderators who are on all the time? This seems a popularity contest more than based upon the rig. I personally believe mods have an unfair advantage. Is this contest for members or management?
Perhaps you could do mod of the quarter? That would honor the mod who's helped the most.

One win period! That is enough of an honor, there a many, many, members, give someone else a chance.

getting my ass kicked again!

Thanks for the great idea's everyone... we do read and discuss them.
Please realize that many of your suggestions are great, but even though we help MOD the site and run this contest... we don't get paid to work here and we all have lives to live. Unfortunatly ideas that require more time than we have available will more than likely (unless they totally RULE) not be initiated, until one of us retires and has nothing more to do than serve the FSB membership. Sorry... but we have to work within the bounds of our realities.

PM comin' your way BLOWN...

Is there any way you can cast a mass notification or post the dates for Nominations and voting? the beginning of the month creeps up on a lot of people and i think i speak for them when i say i want a chance to nominate. if not, thats cool too, but you're getting a big fat bird for it lol

Well here is my 2 cents.

I think we should strip Pepe of his moderator title, tar and feather him and drop him off at the "Blue Oyster Bar" from the Police Academy Movies.

No, honestly, here is what i think. I don't think that the moderators get nominated because they are moderators, i think they get nominated cause they have nice rides, and have put alot of time and cash into them.

In my opinion, we should have a "Tech Helper of the Month" contest too. Steve83, Blaze, Marauder, Nomad, well pretty much everyone has given me solid, good advice. This way the person that is getting nominated for FOTM, isn't nominated for their broad knowledge of Bronco's.

I like the idea of being able to be nominated again in the same year. We should also have a quarterly contest for "Most Improved Bronco". But here is what you run into, alot of different lifestyles here. Some people have the money to dump into their bronc, alot don't. There should be something for the little guy. The big guys with the nice rigs deserve credit, but we should acknowledge the little guy.

Anyhow, just my 2 cents

Hmmm... In light of what Bronco Rob has said, he might be on to something... A recognition section in the general area or something might be in order...


I still think there is room for a two class FOTM, Mild and Wild... but I think this was discussed previously...

Bronco Info: Mods don't have Broncos silly
Keep the pics current. Last month people were posting pics from 2003. One or two for a comparison of how the truck has changed, be it lift, sas, paint, etc... and try to keep it limited to pics of the truck wheeling, getting lifted,engine install,showing and shining. Dog, farm, mountain, workplace, etc...pics are cool, but after all it is Fullsize of the Month.

Is there to make it so only nominees can post in the thread? Do we really need to know who voted for who? It should be pics and rig info. Going through 12 pages of BS for 4 pages of pics gets old.

Blown there is no way to you are going to stop the popularity contest of it, it's just the nature of the beast. It's more of person of the month and the truck many times is secondary. IMO the contest is a good way to profile members rigs, but it breeds drama and contempt, but it's my opinion.

Bronco Info: Broncoless, but I got a 1987 F250 to make up for it
I've read through the rules a couple times and would like to suggest an addition to the FOTM rules sticky. The sticky says the winner must meet the commitment to Bronco Driver magazine, but it doesn't say what that commitment is. I dug around enough to find it, but it would be nice if that info was just added to the sticky.

Thanks for the chance to compete, this is the first time in my life I've ever had anything worth competing with

I just emailed Bronco Driver magazine and he told me what he needed. Which pretty much is a story of your rig. Beginning to what it is now and some pics. The higher the quality the better. I'm hoping to be in the next issue. I gave them my address. Not sure If I'll be getting the subscription or not. I hope they send it.
