I love FOTM but I would like to know more about the winner's truck. I suggest instead of lit put suspension so they can list all of the suspension and sas info. Also I would like to see wheels/tires on the bill. Just my 2 cents. Great site guys!

Unnecissary comments.

Just Reading through a few of the past FOTM and through this recent month. It may only be me but I feel it needs to be addressed. There are some unnecissary comments that are being made by people voting. Such as " I didnt vote for the other people because there rigs werent wheeled enough" or " I voted for so and so because there rig wasnt TTB" I wasnt aware that you had to have a solid axel or beat the piss outa your truck to win. I think that the " negative" comments need to stop. Its on thing to say Hey I voted for you cause its a bad ass rig, or after looking at all the rigs I liked your the most, or not even say who you voted for. I dunno I dont want bitch because when too many people bitch it gets stuff taken away. I think that FOTM is great it gives people a chance to show off there stuff and what capabilities it has. So now that Ive adressed it Is it only me or does anyone else agree?

i agree. The nice clean rigs dont have a chance IMO. The contest isnt whoever did the most work or who has wheeled the most or the person who owns the rig, its Fullsize truck of the month. But, i think the majority of people voting all share the common belief that the truck that gets wheeled hardest and has the most work done to it should get FOTM. I dont agree with it, i actually go for the cleaner rigs like yours 1clean5.8, but thats just me and i know other people prefer other things, i guess thats why we vote.

Its not really that I care to much about who wins or looses. Weather its a clean truck or a beat to shit truck I vote for beat to shit trucks alot just cause I like what they can do and what has been done with them. I also appreciate when a vehicle is clean. Like I said before I may be the only one but I dont think its necissary to post negative comments on why you didnt vote for other people. If you want to tell someone why you voted for them It should really be only directed at them not to the other contestants. Like I stated earlier "I voted for you cause I liked your truck the most." not the "well I voted for you cause you are a solid axel and TTB sucks" or "I voted for you because noone else wheeled enough" so thats my rant.

As long as the "I didn't vote for you . . ." post isn't assholeish, I think it's ok. "TTB sucks" is not a good example of constructive critism.

I'm guilty of saying why I didn't vote for someone. In the last race, I said that I didn't vote for Sgt. Tex because of his camo job. I didn't say "camo sucks", I just stated that it wasn't my thing. He actually agreed and said that he was tired of it himself.

I dunno . . . I think it's ok to say why you didn't vote for someone as long as you try to put it in a constructive way, but I can see how it usually isn't stated/taken in that manner.

BTW, I didn't vote for you Clean because everyone knows red is mo' better than blue

I hope it doesn't come to censorship on comments. As long as it's not being a dickhead, everyone is completely within bounds to say why or why they didn't vote for someone. If a nominee is offended, that's their problem, not the person who posted their opinion.

he is right, i didnt care one bit about the comment, and I am getting tired of camo, way to many people around here have camo since ive done my truck up...its like i started a trend, when i wanted to be different...oh well new scheme coming soon eventually.

and i agree, negative comments like such and such sucks shouldnt be posted, but as hopper said, he didnt vote for me cause he doesnt care for the camo, no biggie.

I personally dont like the people that say that a ttbed rig shouldnt even be in the race, or they wont vote cause not one SAS, etc type thing. Sorry truck came with a TTB, not everyone has the time, money, experience, or tools to pull off a job like that. Wheel what ya got. Hell some people dont even wheel it, it is there daily driver/tow rig. more power to them, not everyone uses it for the same purpose....so yeah i think those kinda comments shouldnt be posted.

I am lost in lala land for the time being.

I think comments that say why someone voted for one but not for another are perfectly ok as long as they aren't just mean like you suck or your truck sucks. Sometimes letting people know why you voted one way or another could help make decisions on changes you might want to make or to know why someone else is doing better. We all vote for different trucks for different reasons and to not allow people to say why they did nor didn't vote for someone is censorship at it's worst. Life is not always cherries and roses, so it is sometimes good to hear the good and the bad about things. Constructive criticism should be allowed and be perfectly fine. That is my 2 cents worth.

I agree with the comments, as long as they are with respect....We would only sensor those that are offensive to one or another..

I've noticed, along with everyone else, that all the FOTM winners and even nominees are all hardcore offroaders. There is nothing ewrong with that, I just would like to see like a "Classic FOTM" or something for people with restored or restomod bronco's. Ones that are clean and straight and not for complete offroad use. Just my opinion

We need more involvement in this. More people need to nominate, and more people need to accept. I think a lot of folks are afraid and don't nominate/accept BECAUSE they aren't built to the hilt or into pushin it hard offroad.

We just need to encourage EVERYONE to participate in this no matter what level they and their truck is at. We are a family (estranged for sure) and we need to participate as one.

Unless you really just don't want to.

I try to remind everyone to vote/nominate. I have three locked threads with links in them that I routeenly bump. I am contemplating placing one in each forum.

I went a little overboard with the one in the political forum.
Got a good hard thwaking for it.

As one of the more mild of the thwackers referred to, I'll repeat what I said there.

The length of the thread can get intimidating; when one guy posts 40 or 50 pictures of himself, I'm not really inclined to go any further. It begins to make a joke out of something you guys want to be serious.

Maybe some guidelines could be set to limit how much self-promotion the guys can do in the FOTM thread - just post the 5 or 10 of the best pics as a teaser to get you to look at them, with a link to their own personal thread that has as many pics as they want?

I've tried soul-searching, but in doing so I've found some really dark places.

I still think the posting should be limited to those who are nominated. All the filler posts of " I gotta give it to this guy" or " why didn't you do this" take away from the purpose of the thread.

It should also be limited to pics of the truck, and what was done to it. No dog pics, no girlfriend pics (we have threads for both).

You're not going to take the human factor out of it. There can be the biggest, baddest built rig in the contest and it will lose to a truck that is half as built, or not built at all because it was up against a member who has been here for ever and has a bunch of E-friends. Which is BS in my opinion because it is not Member of the Month, it is Fullsize of the Month.
