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.?
40 or 50 pics at once can be a bit annoying I agree, but 40 or 50 per the length of the entire thread doesn't bother me any.
What bothers me are those who don't take the time to resize there 5-Mega pixel pics to a reasonable size.
Maybe some guidelines could be set to limit how much self-promotion the guys can do in the FOTM thread.
The whole point of the thread is self promotion, or at least Bronco promotion.
Setting "guidelines" doesn't work, it would have to be hard fast rules.
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?
Then instead of one FOTM thread we will have 5 or more.
They could link to there Supermoters account, but looking through those can be a pain in the but.
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. .
I kinda agree, but I have asked a question or two about the trucks before.
"Hey how did you do that" or "Do you have any more pics of this"
Sometimes it can ad to the thread I think.
But yea the "I had to vote for this guy because he had the only (list year here) in the contest" post can be a bit annoying.
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)
This I agree with 100%
Hot girls, cute dogs, cool tats, non of this should have anything to do with FOTM.
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.
That has happened several times and your right, It shouldn't be that way. But there is nothing that can be done about it.
