Default Bonneville of the week

I was just checking out Bonneville Attitude and noticed the Feature Car of the week. I like this idea, as I've seen on other forums. You can only get so many ideas from text, while others are visual learners. Maybe , but I think it has potential.

I think that'* a great idea.. but instead of car of the week.. which would take way too much voting per week.. what about car of the month.. and maybe even car of the year? hint hint.. my vote would be Scott Cooks...

Glad you liked it! Remember to thank Mike next time you see him then! That'* sse1990 for those new people!

As for the "voting" part, there isn't any at this time! Mike will pick them & has a couple requests already lined up too!

If we're going to do this, we're going to need a volunteer to organize it, receive nominations for eligible cars, and set up the voting poll. I'll give zeke first dibs. Zeke, PM me and give me a quick rundown on how you'd run this

Or just have something like a Bonneville Spotlight. Cause I think it would be good to put the light on everyone'* Bonneville, even the ones without tons and tons of mods.

I just decided to start it up. There is no voting involed, and if it was car of the month, then it woudl take years to see everybodys car.
I want to allow as many people as possible to get their car up there. The car doesn't even have to be moded, just need nice clean pics.
It'* really to give people a chance to see their car on the main page of a site.

Glad you like the idea.

Nothing personal to this forum but go to Bonneville attitude and I am sure they already have it organized. That way you can get your car posted much sooner. I am sure eventually as has happened before this site will follow the Bonneville attitude format and offer the option. I figure both sites will end up with very similar formats and options. As this site gets larger it will take longer to provide options. Same with Bonneville attitude. So catch Bonneville attitude now and I am sure they will post your pictures well they have the time.

Good ideas generally spread. For example, I was a bit surprised to see my copyright notice appear nearly verbatim on the bottom of BA web pages, but I don't have a problem with it. When (if?) I get some free time, I'll look into programming an automated "Featured Bonneville" function. I imagine that i could somehow incorporate it into the Registry, in the process allowing more photos to be uploaded. Of course, before I do that, I need to reprogram TechInfo to allow more categories. Ah, so much to do, so little time...

That would be my doing actually Jeff! I had to write something & your wording of it was perfect. Since I work for GM, I have to make sure a disclaimer is noted on my site or else the GM powers at be can give me alot of grief that I rather not recieve! LOL

I do agree about the copyright info, but it was funny how there weren't too many new sections added till we started the other forum, then low and behold, new sections started to popup with the same purpose in mind.

I personally don't care but I like that fact the we seem to be the leaders and other'* are the followers, ( not you Jeff since you didn't add the sections) the trick now is to keep coming up with the new ideas to stay the leaders.

This was not meant to offend you Jeff in any way possible, just stating the facts. And thanks once again for the great copyright layout.
