Car of the month

postby andy » 10/23/13 @ 12:31

I was thinking that this website could do a car of the month to attract even more people to join. I know m.net and mr.net both do it and it is pretty successful. We could even have prizes for the winner. we could make it so that first place gets their car on the website and they get free vip status or a free 3d printed shift knob or whatever. It just seems like a good way to get more people to hear about this forum. Maybe we can contact some sponsors down the line to offer better prizes for the winners.

i gotta talk to teejay and to any sponsors that may want to get involved.

Werd. Maybe do a sexy man calendar ever year with us all posing all sexy like infront of our cars. I'm sure that would bring in a ton of people.

Men, women, cats. All would be acceptable models IMO.

Hmm, I could enter my stock Camry, stock matrix, or miata with race lands......I'm screwed. Lol.


Seriously I think it's a great idea, just nothing I would ever win.

It is up to the independent adjudicators to decide how they want to pick. Sometimes on other forums it was by a major poll of everyone on the forum. Sometimes it was by a random draw so that everyone had a fair chance. If only the really nice cars won then no one would really submit their car and the traffic on this site would go down. I say post up your camry, or matrix , or miata. Bring some diversity to this generic car phorum.

alright, i'm totally down for this, but i'm not sure i want to involve the sponsors.
so the prizes will have to be somewhat limited.

we have some dead space in the top right...
there's a mod that will allow us to put an image up there. perhaps we can put the car of the month up there with a link to the build thread or more pics or some shit.

we can also give out stickers to the cotm winner.

we could probably get a gift card mailed to the user with donation money as well - the amount would really depend on activity etc...

Just throw a pic of their avatar or car in the corner, and call it done.

Would it be nice to get a prize? Sure. But why complicate it. Maybe just send a sticker. Having a pic of the car in the corner would be cool enough IMO.

I think forum recognition (small photo of the winner's car with build thread link displayed somewhere) and a sticker would be fine, especially since this whole deal is still in infancy. That's all I would ever really want, personally.
