Should we create a Car of the Month Award

When the IOM award died, it was a period where I was not on the site very much, so I don't know all the details.

It seems to me that most of the moderators were old guard members like myself who have either moved on to different cars or just don't visit the site like they used to, there is a new group of members who come often and would like to see their cars featured somehow.

I would be willing to moderate a new Car or the Month, and then Year.

Like most contests like this, it is a popularity contest, but all elections are.

So I suggest we do not resurrect the IOM, we create the new DI.net COTM

You're back! Nice to see you again. I think you have a good idea.

I really liked the IOM/IOY concept and it was great when they had a calendar. I made a calendar page for my IOM win as we were going to have one that year, but didn't. :(

Like I said in the other thread, I spend a great deal of time on this site and feel like it is my online home and you guys are like my 2nd family! I will have my car for a long time so I will be spending much more time here in the future. I would also be willing to do anything I could to improve this site and make it be a great place for intrepid enthusiasts for years to come.

I like the new COTM idea. The IOM was the original thing that had me visiting the site to get new ideas every month before I could either afford or had enough courage to mod my own ride (my how times have changed).

I know, I remember at first I was thinking I might get an OTIS and maybe a spoiler but I figured I'd never be able to do anything else or have the money to do it. Times have changed indeed

I vote for COTM. Maybe have seperate 1G/2G COTM's, then the COTY is narrowed from those?
I dunno, just a thought. By the time I really became more active here, IOM was canceled :p

Charles, I think you have a great idea! I sure would like the honor of car of the month! That would be great honor indeed! This would be a great addition to the site.

I moderate the equivalent at dichat.net. Although it's more about personality rather than cars. ;) We have a lot of fun with it... so if it's decided to make something worthwhile of it here going forward, I'd be glad to help out as well...

This past year i haven't done a single mod... Haven't been motiviated.

I think making it COTM would please a lot of people.

can't make it 1g/2g since then it is too much like iom. Make it COTM. Doesn't have to be a Trep, or even a LH body car, or even a Mopar for that matter.

This site is so much more than the Dodge Intrepid....

I agree, make it like Car and Driver's COTY. There are so many different vehicles that apply, so it would only make sense to keep it broad and general!

you have a great idea Charles, and i like it, and i think it would be great

but lests be honest...

this has been hashed and rehashed and talked about and debated over and over again, with no result
a COTM or IOM OF WTFYWCIOM (can anybody get that acronym?) won't work without support of the admins of the site

it also wont work if it continues the way it was in february

i happen to know the real story behind the IOM snafu in February, and it really did need to be overhauled
the question now is if the forum is ready as a whole to be mature enough to handle IOM or some other form of it again, if people wont bash the guy who is moderating it and try to skew voting one way or another. What do I mean by this? Well, i'll put it this way: its ok for people to say, hey, i'm voting for this guy, and somebody else to say, hey, im voting for him too, but its simply NOT ok for a whole large group of guys to set up a schedule of who they are gonna vote for on what month in order to force votes through

that all said, I am in support of bringing it back again, if people can get their heads out of their asses and be mature.
its getting kinda lonely here in the 2006 IOM winner's group!!!!!!

these are my thoughts, but i encourage everyone to read them

that said, i still think it was better when it was Intrepid of the Month
the site is called DodgeIntrepid.net, not DodgeIntrepid and the other cars of people who dont own Intrepids anymore.net

COTM would still be ok with me though
