yes, the featured ride contest will be held every 2 months. so mao will be featured beginning august 1st through september 31st. the next winner will be determined during aug/sep. we'll keep the nominee limit to 5 unless there is an overwhelmnig amount of nominations. extending the contest time from 1 month to 2 doesn't change the number of people contending for this contest. it just gives everyone more time to nominate, vote, create the winner page, and most importantly admire the winner :D

ponickka, you gotta realize that v6p is not the first priority on everyone's list.....its just an internet forum contest. not everyone has the latest pics of their car lying around waiting to win a contest. when someone wins, they have to wash/wax/etc their car and find a good location for a photoshoot. then they gotta go out and actually do the photoshoot and send the pics to me. imo, i don't think 1 week is enough time for that. someone could be really busy that week w/work or family or school, etc. that doesn't mean they don't appreciate everyone else's efforts. besides, spending all that time, money, and effort members here put into their cars deserves much more than just a month on the front page. this way, everyone wins :)

yea, screw 'em! but what do we do if the runner up does the same thing? and the person after that? lets just give each other some slack and keep in mind v6p is not on the top of everyone's list (including myself). :grouphug: :D

I certianly agree with DaBenz7898 on this aspect.. giving them more time to prepare is certianly a courtesy we should provide.. but let's not forget we can not give slack forever as well.. a soft deadline and a hard deadline is my suggestion...

then wut is this whole purpose of changes?? just to extend the time??? if yes, i can almost gurantee, the laggin incident will happen again and again...then the mods will complain, the user will complain..will go bac to the same..

if they are busy, then shouldn't they just reject the position?? i fully understand that v6p is not top prority, cuz it isn't for me as well, so if u accept the vote, then stick with rules..and if u can't, or busy, simply reject it...isn't that better???

the purpose of the change is to provide everyone involved more time. more time to nominate, more time to vote, more time to get pics together, and more time for me to get the winner thread posted. so yes, the whole point is to make this contest a little less restricted on time.

i like the idea of a soft/hard deadline. once the winner is determined, i'll contact them w/the deadlines. i'll make it clear on the threads what the deadline is long before the actual day. that way the winner has no excuse.....and if they still can't meet the deadlines, then SCREW 'EM......they will be :banned: from future featured ride contests.
