Agreed, Matt. I don't think self nominations should be allowed.

Clubprotege does a great job on COTM. If you want to be nominated, you MUST have a photo album. Makes nominations a lot easier than going through random threads finding a picture of a nice Escort.

Voting isn't where it needs to be either. 20-30 votes out of hundreds of active members doesn't cut it.

Yeah, I voted every single time too!

I too like CP's rule about the photo gallery, although they do have a much better photo gallery setup than this site, so it may not be as feasible here.

I agree when somebody said the only people who have any real interest in COTM are the "regulars" around here like myself and maybe 30 others. It's too bad that more members aren't active, but I'm guilty of that on other forums. Like, I have 1 or 2 posts on HowardForums.com about cell phones and I'd never pay enough attention there to vote on anything.

do you guys consider me active?seriosly? :lol: i've been in here a couple times, but never voted, but i don't remember if i voted this last time or not, but if i did, then i know it was for woowoo, he's muh buddy. :D

:lol:


i agree that maybe a thread should be posted in off topic or gen discussion informing when it's time to vote, let the selection go through with the regulars on here and then when it actually comes time to vote post a thread letting people know it is... maybe more votes can be had that way...

We have lots of ideas for themes, that's not the issue.

We have a lot of mediocre cars being nominated for COTM. I really don't care, but some think they shouldn't be winning.

Maybe in February we can start up again with a couple winners.

I still don't want to do self nominations.

I like the idea of having some sort of prize for the winner.

We can win... prizes!?

Though you may be asking for trouble if you are offering prizes with the current nomination system. The urge to get free stuff can cause people to campaign all over the forum to get a nomination. If we can't nominate ourselves then we need a place were we can show off our cars, like a "Please nominate me thread." Next month's "Please nominate me thread" could be started after the nominees for the current month have been chosen and so on. It could even be placed in the photo forum where it would get more views and thus encourage more participation.

if people gotta politic over a small gift pack then the can go else where its not like there getten a full center page photo shoot with Jessica Barton

, im all about advertising that ur cars up for it but dont be a Richard Cranium about it , im not disclosing what it is to anyone , yoda knows and if he accepts , then he can disclose it , but yeah a nominee thread would be good , and Im all about a self nomination thread , our photo section isent the best or Im just stupid cus I cant post pic's at all in it ..

Not to impose on the "Prize" idea... but what came to mind when I read about it was something like a decal. Something that one could place on the winning car, like, "FEOA.NET Car of the Month - Jan. 2009" and so on... Like, then it gives you the braging rights that come along with it. I do not know how much a simple decal would cost to make, but I don't think it could be THAT much...

Anyway, just an idea... continue... :D
