Default My 2 cents.

I think we need to start doin ride of the month, and year. Lol. All the car forums I've been on have it and it seems like a good way to get everybody involved and all that.
And if you guys decide to do that, id be willing to take care of it every month if wanted.

I'll just come straight out and say it, ride of the month poses a few problems. One we are not trying to be like every other g body site. Two, if there aren't enough donks we get labeled, not enough drag cars we get labeled, not enough corner carvers we get labeled. Also I hate to say it, but nobody can be open minded enough to vote all different types of cars into the ride of the month category. I also don't see how it brings everybody together, I think the ever changing pictures we have at the top of each page is better than ride of the month, the site selects them at random and everybody is covered.

well, its not only on Gbody sites.I only know of one other Gbody site anyways lol, somebody wanna tell me the others? its on every type of car forum ive ever been on. And how does it bring everybody together? Its a great way to get people actually posting and communicating with one another, and yeah changing pics at the top is cool. but that adds no means of communications. thats just sumthn to look at rather than sumthn that can start a conversation. and from this post, only a few ppl chimed in. but everyone besides the mods seems like they would enjoy it. With all due respect, just because the mods dont like it, but everybody else does, we dont get it? lol i dont mean that in a rude way, i just think it would be fun, and it has been a great feature on all the other sites.

I never said i didnt like it,It was something to just think about for me. Thw Mods cant set up the car of the month,Only the site Admin. can.Its up to him,he makes the final decision,we just bring the idea up to him. I see nothing wrong with doing a random G body of the month,no voting, Just randomly chosen,that way people dont get butt hurt when there car isnt chosen that particular month..

Exactly, it has to be done on a random selection w/no voting or anybody over seeing it. I agree for the reasons you stated above.

EDIT: IF we do a g body of the month, I think it should be a little more in depth though than other sites. IE: Say mid june, random selection pics 85mino's car. He gets sent a PM and does a write up on his car, no matter how much is done to the car, just share a little info or if there is a story behind it ya know? If the PM isn't returned in say 3 days, then random selection brings up another one and they are PMed. I know it sounds like a pain, but to really get people involved like dlo had mentioned a good background on the car would be nice.

I think the garage can be setup to randomly pick someone. Let me look into it I haven't paid attention to that part of it before.
