Car of the month

On a couple of other forums there is a "Car of the month" where people enter their cars into a thread using one or 2 of the best pictures and then after a certain amount of time say a week there's a poll that goes up where people can vote for the car they like the most.
and to give everyone a fair chance of winning you can only enter your car every 2-3 months. Maybe have a banner as a prize just for the month that you have won for then it gets given to the person who wins next month
What do people think to this?

Yes! Similarly, on another forum they have a "créme of the crop" section. Where the best cars are shown. Bit like a members motors section but with the best ones.
Thanks JustAndy thanked for this post

Re: Car of the month

Just peoples favourite cars, If people like the ICE then they can vote for the car with the best system and if people like how original the car is, they vote for the most original. Just personal preference on the car they like the most and if they dont like any car thats up that month they dont have to vote

Re: Car of the month

it worked on a forum I was on before but not sure how it was judged....its a good idea though. Because I find myself loooking through loads of 'members motors' trying to find some of the best

Maybe you could judge it on how many likes the 'members motor' has got, for example

Re: Car of the month

Yeah well maybe we could have a certain section each month, like one month have a vote for who people think has the best sound system and next month have the best looking car etc etc there could be loads of categories

Yeah i think it would be a good aspect to get peoples cars noticed for how good they actually are. Not too sure on it actually happening, will have to see what Ben thinks when he sees this and how complicated it would be to incorporate into the forum and where it could go etc

Re: Car of the month

Its been suggested before and got shelved, have a search in this section for the previous thread

It would cause numerous arguements if people didnt agree with the winner, the winner would get end up getting a massive swollen head no doubt, people would moan and wonder why there car wasnt in it, the fact people have certain friendships on here, there is the opportunity to cheat and big up a persons car even if they dont really like it and no one was willing to donate a prize every month

Thing is that judges wouldnt choose the winner, the forum would with a poll. So everyone gets 1 vote and thats it so they cant like vote loads of times for a mates car or anything and people enter their own car in a dedicated thread so its their own fault if their car wasnt in that months poll. I still think it could work

Re: Car of the month

i like the idea, dont make it complecated tho, just have the prize as if you win your catagory, you have your site name in the top left hand corner of the homepage aka 'butcher' and your site name is linked http to your members motor thread for people too see.

although thinking about it i can imagen people clicking on the link and saying 'wtf how did this win the best looking car of the month'

that kind of thing.

idk would be a nice idea tho
