Default COTM

Lets have this voting public and no car can be COTM twice in the same year. Just a simple poll each month or suggestions from members. Maybe have it in the lounge so no BS counts towards post count. Im open to suggestions.

Judging isn't based solely on trim level. You know there'* more to that. Honestly...


Public voting wouldn't be a bad idea. However, there'* still the matter of choosing candidates each month. Who is going to decide that? There has to be some sort of committee to choose those. I think public voting would take up way too much time and effort each month.

NO commitee NO choosing candidates. Just a free for all where everyone shouts out names and ideas. No repeats and no self choosing.

Here we are again......I asked Merlin to take this program on over a year ago, and having the benefit of watching him manage it behind the scenes, I can truly say that nobody would find fault with it or him if they saw what I see every month.

Don and I watch quietly as Merlin includes the entire group of Moderators to help him make the right decision.

Quote:
Well I would like to give it to xxxxx or xxxxx simply because they aren't SSEs or SSEi'*

Quote:
I'd like to see xxxxx. It'* a great looking bonnie and not all dressed up on the outside (I'm not saying that is bad to havew a dressed up car ) I think we need to make sure that we are giving the COTM to all types of Bonnes.
Quote:
went back to look at the poll we did in Dec... next runner up was xxxxx (SE) but he hasn't posted this month at all.

xxxxx (SLE) has been whoring it up..... but if I pick him, it'll be 3 '93'* in a row....
... some one will calll shenanigans.....

xxxxx (SE)....
xxxxx (SSEi)....
xxxxx (SSE)...
xxxxx (SE).... (can't find any posts that aren't rexed)


Any other suggestions?
These are excerpts from the last 2 months of decision-making for COTM. Satisfied?
