The more we talk about it the more people will be aware of it. I do not know how everyone else navigates this forum, but I always go to the "New Posts" tab and look at the stuff from the last day, and if we keep talking about this it will always show up in that area.

I will put in a request to add a news module to the home page. This will allow you to be able to have the winner posted to the home page. Will just need to get a mod or admin to help with posting the content there once it is set up.

Hey there

This would be for March, as February is half over now.

Cool, I did not know how you did it, if you voted during the month and awarded it at the end of the month, or you voted in advance.

I'm in too...but I'm pretty sure it won't last. There seems to be a lot less activity here, ever since the "password change" that happened a while back. I think it will the same few people that participate, and will get boring in short time.

Just being honest here...prove me wrong.

FYI, we have some upgrades to make to the site this week. This is part of getting the home page upgraded and running with content pushed from the news as well as ROTM section. This has tossed a minor delay into us setting up the home page. We should have this all completed before the end of next week.

Some ideas that might help,... just thinking out loud...

Maybe I'm wrong but IIRC, the past ROTM was only outside shots of the truck showing wheels tires lifts, etc...some of us have spend a lot of time and effort on the inside too, some spent time with visual changes under the hood. Is there a way that it can be optional so if the submitter chooses, it can be an outside, under hood, interior... whatever shows the best mods on the truck? I think one outside shot should be mandatory but maybe a max of 2 or 3 more pics to allow under hood or interior are allowed?

Liek actual car shows, maybe group similar type trucks together, there are categories but only one category gets selected per month for voting. Off Road, Street Scene, Over the Road, "General Working Class Hero", or something like that.

So the owner submits his truck for the category(s) (max 2 categories maybe?) he chooses then the Admin decides based on #'s entries that month or the last time the category was voted on, which category to post up for voting.

I don't think anyone wants to keep resubmitting their pics every month. So when submitting the user should note: " please save for future months". So if he doesn't win that month, Admin saves the entry and posts it up the next time they select that category. Maybe a PM goes out to the owners once the category has been chosen for the month saying they have a submission in waiting and that their ride will be used again that month and they are to reply to the PM with "OK". That keeps from having "post and run" new users having their truck entered again when they aren't even coming to the site any more.
