Re: Car of the month

Nice idea but how would it be judged?

Or maybe this could change from month to month? Like different criteria?

Month 1: Cleanest car (best shine or something)?
Month 2: Most modded?
Month 3: Best interior?
Month 4: Nicest exhaust (video)?
etc etc.. could be good to have a list beforehand so people know what to enter theirs for!!

Yeah ^^ it just splits up the different polls then!! as some people may not have big sound system but has a nice standard genuine fiat 500 lets say, just seems fair to do a different poll for each month!!

Re: Car of the month

Thats exactly what i want to happen! Like some people like go and no show and others the other way round so its only fair if each person gets a good chance to win!
So what do people think? Yes or no?

Re: Car of the month

being a trainee graphic designer i have been on alot of graphics and art forums and they have something very similar and it works SO well.
every month or week a moderator will post a thread with the rules like what theme / how many images / if photoshop editing is allowed.
then all people who want to take part will post there entries in the replies.
then after a week, entries is closed. and the moderator opens a poll with all the entries in and let the public decide. leave the poll open for a week or so.
then on most graphics forums the winner has there artwork displayed on the forums homepage with a link to there artwork so we could do something similar with the winning image. and a link to there members motors thread. so people can view there car in more detail and give congratulations on winning.
really does keep a forum active having a little bit of friendly competition.

i know none of you wana see a graphics forum but take a look at this:

http://www.delta-visions.net/forums/

as you can see the winners image is posted on the forum homepage as a broadcast.

very good concept.
DO ITTTT

Re: Car of the month

The winner could earn an achievement or something similar which is a clickable link. The link could then redirect whoever clicked it to the details of what the user had won and the pictures of the car?

Re: Car of the month

Wow

All that effort lovingly valeting the vehicle, cleaning it, polishing it, maybe even fitting those new alloys youve just bought, or finally spraying that bodykit up and fitting it

Blood, sweat and tears spent making it look lovely.......FOR A RIBBON ON YOUR PROFILE THAT YOU MIGHT NOT WIN ANYWAY OR MAYBE A LINK!!!

That is what you are up against - people arent going to be interested or put the effort in for something as little as that

The only way this will seriously take off is there is a cash prize and im afraid no one is willing to do that, Ben wont be interested in stumping up x amount every month and theres no way forum members are going to donate to a cash pot and let someone else take it

you might have maybe a month or twos interest due to its newness but then it will die a slow and painful death

Re: Car of the month

Well it seems to work on other forums without any prize at all and just a picture of their car on a title page. I dont see why there would have to be a cash prize if its just for fun? I personally wouldnt spend hours detailing my car just to enter it into the competition but thats upto whoever wants to enter. I just dont see why this wont work tbh but thats your opinion on it and if you dont see it working, then fair enough.

That qoute sums up the problems with it

If you arent going to take it seriously, then why should everyone else?

People will enter any old pieces of crap - dirty cars, crashed cars, anything, they might even just go onto google and copy an image and enter it when it isnt even their car

And what if it won? I dont know about you, but i certainly wouldnt be happy if i had got a really nice pic of my nice clean car and was beaten by someone who couldnt be bothered that could possibly also have been voted up by my friends who ive told in secret to 'sign up and vote for my car'

How horribly wrong! You need to get some motivation if you'll do something YOU ENJOY for money only!

As said, it works well on many other forums, hopefully people here could co-operate. I know I certainly could!

^and the friends signing up thing is easily solved by doing it all in a seperate forum - 30 posts and 3 months needed before you can see it...

But as well as 'newbies' you are taking away a proportion of the forum members who can participate and may wish to participate, perhaps even alienating them from future participation once meeting criteria

Alright then I will put it to you this way

One of you who is serious offer up a cash prize out of your own pocket and see how many people take an interest

Then offer an alteranative offering - a banner in your profile for a month, see how many take an interest in that

Or offer a cash prize then the following month a banner and no cash prize then see what happens

I bet i know which one will get the most interest

Then if somehow its proved that people were interested in the banner then you can tell me people arent interested or motivated by money

Re: Car of the month

I think the idea could be tweaked a bit.

How about picture of the week (car related otherwise some smart gimp will just post their bird in the nip and get the votes lol)

Seeing great pictures of members cars should draw new members in & besides this site needs more galleries, progress threads rather than essay posts about problems
