    Question Two months away from the '2012 Ride of the Year' contest

    Hey folks,

    It's almost that time of the year to take the 12 monthly winners and pit them against each other for the CRO Ride of the Year honors!

    We'd love to hear ideas from the community about what you guys would love to see happen for the ROY contest? Should we keep it open voting, member only, what about prizes?

    Post ideas here!


    You Will Respect My Authoritah!!

    I think it should be member voting, but would we really have the participation? OPEN voting might inspire some new members. But also brings car clubs/other website stacking of votes too. We have awesome choices each month, but it seems few, have ever posted in the forums or participated on the site. We have so many incomplete garages in the members list. Suggestion...Membership is NOT activated til garage is complete with at least 1 photo in album's and a Hello post in introductions. Justa my .02

    While on the topic of trophys. Would anyone else like to see a trophy room in the topics list off the main forum list? Cordobamans post seems to have good participation/interest.

    Cool

    I agree that if you are in the running for RotM or RofY that you should have some posts on Cool Rides Online...

    I was looking at the members list and I was amazed at how many members have not even posted one time...

    I do think it's a good idea also that members should have a photo section also so we can see what there rides look like...

    I like the idea of a Trophy Section as it's own section also, it's good to show off the bling that we win for our Cool Rides...

    I would say to add a 6th section to the General Discussion area and list it as Trophy Room with a heading of "Show us your Trophy's " or some thing like that...

    I like the garage idea as well......I may not post a lot, but I have a crap load of photos in several photo albums. I agree with the Ride of the Month, there should be some things posted. And I like to see photos of people with their winning certificate. box of goodies or trophies from here. Just my .02.

    I agree, Justa6 -otherwise it turns into a different contest altogether with how many friends and relatives can someone gather to vote.

    Good thought. Cordobaman's thread DID take off.
