Default Miataturbo.net MOTM maybe?

Miataturbo.net Miata of the Month

I think it'd be awesome if we had a Miata of the Month here. Every month, the winner should have the best picture of his/her car inserted into the site banner. Ayone else up for it?

You'd just have an official thread every month open for contestants to post pictures and information. Then Philip or a moderator or who-ever gets the job pics the top 5 contestants, and we start a poll towards the end of the month. Obviously, when picking the top 5, you're looking at the car itself, and the quality of the picture (can't use a crappy picture for our site banner, ya know?) and also the modifications done. How does the car look/run overall?

At the very end of the month (midnight of the last day) the poll ends. Next day, we make a new banner, probly via photoshop, and put it up for the rest of the month.

Whatever, just a thought :gay:

basically I'm with Ben, not enough members at this point, and I'll be honest with you I'm too lazy to write the page every month and load the banner

I like the roast idea. How about the engine bay of the month, since this is miataturbo, the rest of the car is only there for me to control the motor.

How about stupid post of the month? I suspect the same members would keep getting the award, so it would be nice and easy

Another board I'm on does it, www.tennesspeed.net.

I was chosen as member of the month for November of last year I think, but my turbo miata wasn't featured, it is just too ugly right now. I had my R package and Trailblazer SS featured instead. It was a cool honor, but it is a much larger forum than this and caters to all types of vehicles.

I'm really not feeling it guys.

If someone wants to maintain the page and handle the whole thing I'll throw a banner up with a static link and you can change the page it links to, but I really don't have the time or desire to fuss with it.

I can host it and give you FTP access to make/update the page.

i was thinking a meter that shows the number of pointless and retarded posts by each member, then at the end of each month the person with the most gets banned for a month... what do u think??

might shut me and magnamx5 up for a while
