Yeah, he's a real slacker, Bryan. You should take his place and let us give you some grief!>
I haven't checked yet, but this poll probably has the same amount of votes as the COTM poll, so far. Maybe it's just a case of promotion--to get more people involved. How about a year's premium membership for Monthly winner(s) and Lifetime Premium for Car of the year winner(s)?Any body else have an opinion on this topic?
I'm going to LI to look you up and take some pics of that GEO Metro you call the speed bump!>I have told as many newbies as possible once they hit 5 postings they can vote and participate. I am not sure what else I can do other than steal a camera and make The Speed Bump sit for photos!
So, you're elected, Holly--got my vote--to continue Scotty's work. Maybe instead of a trophy, frame the pic of the posted car of the month picture that won with "CR-Z forum January COTM Winner" added to the pic, or something like that. Maybe even start a paypal for donations to a fund to help cover costs....Scotty (RIP) used to engrave cheap trophies and send them out. The avatar thing would be cool if we could get it to work. The membership upgrade would also be cool, but that's totally up to Autoguide because that's worth money I think
Curious thing, though, is that we have six more "Yes" votes on this poll than the total of votes for December's COTM, but it's been mostly around 20 total votes and something like three entries per month--ghee-whiz!This happened to my boyfriend, and he had a hell of a time trying to log back on after a hiatus. It seemed that because he didn't change his password, or whatever the email said to do, within a certain time period that it locked him out. It took some work but he has his account back. I don't think most people would go thru that hassle.
I put my car up for COTM, and accidentally win sometimes--but I'm just trying to get more (different) people to post up--needing a variety of CR-Zs in the mix. There's great ones out there, and I'd like to see COTM continue because I'd like to see them promoted, but the only votes that count are not in this poll--they're voting "yes" by posting your pics when the contest gets started for the month.:wink2:Maybe I stead of monthly you should do it quarterly and yearly. I think that way there would be a build up to the event.
