Q&A thread about ROTM contests
This forum is ONLY to be used for ROTM WINNERS. All other posts will be moved.
I noticed a lot of you asking questions in last months poll thread. I apologize for not answering them right away since I was gone for a lot of the month. Instead of answering them in that thread, I decided to start this one where you can ask and I will try and answer when I'm around.
Update (4/5/2011): Please choose the ROTM "How to enter" link on the menu for the latest post on how to enter.

Is it only you who chooses? What do you base your calls on? Why not make it an actual nomination by other members instead of the "pick me" process currently in place?

I agree, with TYMBOM, and if that is the case I will nominate him for Ride of the Month for March.

I think the race for February is over. We are now moving on to March.

I think that there should be 3 seperate categories each month for rotm, and you would be allowed one vote in each category per month.
S10/colorado-small midsize trucks
Silverado- full size pickups
It is too biased towards the fullsize trucks right now, and I think a lot of people are really fed up with the whole rotm thing anyway. But it would be nice to give the little guys a chance!!2004 Chevy Colorado

As far as how I go about picking those that meet the criteria, I try to choose a group of trucks that would make for the most interesting race. Obviously if I put one lifted modded truck in with three stockers, the outcome is already made. I also try to make sure that I throw rides that I see as unique or interesting into the mix when I can.
I'm not opposed to the idea of true nominations, this is just how it's always been done, and the way I was taught to run it when I took over the duties. In the end, it's going to come down to me, or someone else, picking anyway. I think that it would be very difficult to keep it to four nominees each month. Also the criteria that the moderator team sets into place, whether its the current points or modified points, would still have to be met.

I agree with you that the full size trucks have the edge for some reason, I personally like the mini's and SUV's a lot and would like to see more of them take the honors. At this point all I can do is try to make sure they get their chance and then it's in the hands of the voters.
You know, for people being so fed up with ROTM, there sure is a whole lot of interest in it. If it really is that bad, then send Steve an email asking for the contest to be overhauled into something else and stop playing and participating in the mean time. I'm sure that if there is enough response, the moderator team will consider other events/games/etc. Bottom line is, it's a game. I put it on each month for you folks to enjoy, not get frustrated or upset with. When it gets to the point of no fun, then its to the point where the game needs to change or end.
