Default COTM idea

Just thinking "out loud" here.

The COTM winner have there car in the upper right corner for a month. Like Peter had his car up there for winning the million post guess.
Just to give a little variety.

Again, may be a stupid idea, but just thinkin out loud.

the problem would come where once a month, someone good with graphics would have to cut the winners car out of a picture and into that format, and then a staff member who can edit the template would have to change the page.

Speaking of COTM, we need a volunteer that knows HTML and has server space. Enough space for the archive also.

Hans doesn't have the time to keep up any more. PM applications with your skillz to any Admin.

I actually do like the idea of the COTM at the top of the page.

With the new site ownership, that idea will be up to Peter. I currently have server access, but don't know if I'll retain that. Whoever the new COTM guru is, probably won't have server access either.

So we have to determine if it'* worth the time of those who do. We COULD have the code remotely link to a PB image of a specific filename, which may be easier. But that'll also take alot of bandwidth out of that account.

If you guys were looking for someone to archive it. You could just try making one of those freebie sites for the time being with all of the COTM photos on it in case anyone wants to see them all until something gets done?

Not much right now. Interest in COTM has been zero.

And it'* a big PITA to manage.
