    C'mon everyone! I have seen y'all post some pretty sweet pics of your bikes and most of you are not entering! Why???

    ok...i know what the problem is, we've tried to cover this before...i deleted my rant, and i'll try again.

    the BOM contest has to be more representative of the whole community, especially considering that it will be on top of every page of the site.

    for instance, i wasn't aware, and i suspect noone else was either, that the owner of the current BOM (victor duece) has never posted one article on MBc. he came along to "win" a contest, never interested in becoming part of the community. what a fargin' total does this situation represent who we are?

    look, it comes down to how sociable we want BOM to be. obviously, the current setup isn't cutting it. i think the solution is also obvious. any one owner/builder can be on the banner only once in a year. i consider this suggestion to be the most sociable one. after all, it should be a safe assumption that any MBc member who's already won would want everyone else to have a chance, too.

    now, if you really want to level the field a bit more, we could make the measurements of the banner image a requirement, and peeps could crop their own custom shots for submission. almost everyone can come up with at least one creative shot of their bike.

    usernames should be posted with the entries, profile and personality would make this a friendlier process. the level of the quality versus the resouces available would definitely become a factor in voting.

    MBc is quickly heading towards "club-ship" and we should start practicing more camraderie in our activities. BOM as it stands right now isn't very friendly to the large majority of our members. 179 members and 5 entries speaks for itself.

    i'm pretty sure most people feel the same why bother, eh?

    Agreed. You can only win once per year, and I am going to put the username along with their bike in the poll.

    when do thay choose the bikes again?
  12. gone_fishin

    gone_fishin Guest

    now you have 6 entries, bro :)

    here's my thinking...with the new BOM atmosphere, it's kinda like a year-long contest with 12 places to win, maybe a "winner's choice" at the end.

    i think i might have a chance if i stick with it long enough.

    and, it's a great opportunity for all of us to put up one nice pick a month, the whole BOM will turn into a most excellent gallery of the best of everyone's "bike of the month."

    let's flood the contest with the real deal, i'd love to see 'em all...

    ps-no, i ain't voting for myself :p

    i see a ton of bikes that could easily be Bike Of The Month. i know only one wins top honor, but i'm gonna show-off anyway...i ride my bike of the month every day.

    if we start getting enough entries, we may be able to finally define "classes" & eventually we'll find a way to split top-honors among the various winners.
