Sad Car Of The Month....Please Read

Due to the waning interest in the Car Of The Month contest, we have decided to put it to a vote to the membership whether or not to keep it going.

Each month, we've had less and less nominations for the contest, and that makes it much more difficult to keep it up. Based on the results of this poll, the contest will either be shut down, or we will rekindle it, but we will need the memberships support in monthly nominations.

Please vote and feel free to discuss any suggestions or options you can think of.

I vote no. It's old, worn out and really it serves no real purpose anymore. It was special back in the day...but with the smaller crowds we have (it has been large than a year ago I admit), its pretty much a dead horse.

Why not have a COTM where instead of nominating members, its more like a monthly photo contest. Anyone who wants to participate in COTM must take photos of their car during the period of the contest (month before), then the submissions get put to a vote by the membership a week before the month ends. Seems more fun to me, and we'd get new photos to look at .

i think a way that might help get more voters. is send out a mass email and ask for nominations. there are some people who are on every day that dont know what all goes on here.

Just FTR, Mass PMs and large print threads have been sent out on many occasions with little or no response.

The current contest is not attracting at all. Kimura's idea is cool and what not, but look at LHF..they have the same contest he is talking about it and it barely gets any hits. Plus, with all the photo editiing software out there it takes the fun of it. again...

I think what you are thinking of it the Pic of the Month. where there is a theme each month and the members car must be in the picture. I think what he is talking about is like that just without the theme. I think that is a good idea.
