Just be very friendly to members, have a full sig or link to a post with all your vehicle information for those interested.. chat once in a blue moon, show up at some events etc. THat usually does it. I still don't know how our beloved bulgie did it, but hey.. :P He's just the exact opposite, that somehow works out to his advantage. ;)

Get to know the people. Post a lot of pictures of your car. Eventually people will nominate you if they like your car as well as you.

I'm not sure if you know this, but members nominate the canidates, then members vote on the ones that are nominated most. If you really want to be IOM, you could nominate yourself next month.

P.S. Many of you may have already seen my mods but I had to remove them from the pics out of fear of being next to get the same as The two GREATS here YB andOTTO. I paid for everything I own but now fear if I may show something DC does not comply to I would be in SH$T net......

Another thing to pay careful attention to is not to make too many run on scentences that confuse people that try to read it because they may get lost while reading your post and then they may not continue or give up etc etc etc etc.

See what i mean? It's like your not taking a breath sometimes. I'm only saying this constructively to help you out.
Every little bit counts. Perhaps try a period at the end of every scentence..and perhaps after every 3 scentences, create a new paragraph.

Makes it easier to read.

Its really just a popularity contest. Some months you get nominated some you dont. I got lucky and got nominated my first month here and many months following. I almost won, but we wont go there...anyways like i said its popularity, im not very popular here, but i have been here for a year, brought some things to the site cough ram air cough, and made meets so that helped me off to a point. Just keep with it, you never know...

was that directed at me? Lol. the thoughts of selling my car are long gone. a few DI.net members slapped the sense back into me.

IOM voting is definately a popularity contest. Thats how it's supposed to be. The IOM award isnt just for the mods you do, its a combination of your car, the information you can provide to others, and what people think of you. A little luck is involved as well.

And sometimes, it comes totally out of left field ;)

The major voting factor for me, is if I have personally met you and seen the car in person. That's how I can tell the pride the owner has in his/her car and the work they did.

Well that's not 100% of my decision on who I vote for, but what I am getting at is you'll have a much better chance if you attend some meets and get to know other members
