April YJOTM Enter Now!!

You guys know the drill. Lets make this another great turnout.


Rules for entry



Here are the rules:

The rules:
To enter into the Yj of the Month contest, you must adhere to a certain set of guidelines. These are set up to keep the contest within a reasonable format and provide the voters with a certain ease of use. Applicants must have 50 technical post and had been a member since the last calendar month respectively. Entries should follow this formatting:

-Username
-YJ year of production
-Specifications and modifications
-Brief history of your jeep and how it came to be. (optional)
-Three pictures [IMG] tags embedded onto entry

Entries will be narrowed down by a secret panel of judges on here who have deemed themselves knowledgeable in the YJ spectrum. They will most likely be former winners themselves voted by the very guys entering in the first place. Winners of the contest cannot enter again for an entire calendar year but everyone is welcome to enter every month. For the time being, all entries should be sent to me via PM as to not lose track like entries sent in prior months that were eaten by the spam filter in the email account. If your entry is not selected, please review the formatting and double check the rules and try again next month.

If there are any more questions feel free to post in this thread or PM me with any concerns or suggestions. Some of the changes were due in part to the overwhelming amount of time it takes to put this together even with a set of judges to filter through the entries. Good luck to all!

And please add a "YJ" tag to the PM, it helps me sort through them for archival purposes. I don't like missing any entries throughout the month amidst the dozens of other PM's I receive. This is kinda important.

On hosting images and using photo bucket:

I just read a post wherein the author was describing his results painting his Jeep with Rustoleum and then with another product. He was talking about finish and results, but then admitted he had no idea how to post photos into his thread. Kind of made no sense to talk about visuals and not supply any. So, here for everyone who doesn’t know, is a step-by-step guide to hosting and posting your pictures.

Step 1: Get a photo hosting account

Its really very easy and free. I prefer Photobucket as it is unlimited storage, free, and easy to use. Go to Photobucket.com and sign up for a free account: www.photobucket.com and click the “sign up” button. They will ask for some very basic info as seen in the picture below. Fill it out and submit.



Photobucket will send you an email to confirm you are not some random BOT. Open the email and click the confirmation link. It will take you to the login screen:



Once logged in, simply click the UPLOAD button,



Choose the [Select Photos and Videos] button.



This will open up a window allowing you to select the images from your computer. Find the the Picture(s) from your computer you wish to add to your post and click OPEN. You can upload multiple images into Photobucket by holding down the Control button on your keyboard and left clicking all the images you want.



They will automatically upload to Photobucket.



Once uploaded, click VIEW ALBUM.



Find the Image you just uploaded, find the “IMG Code” and Control+C (right click copy) that IMG code.



Step 2: Putting a Picture Into Your Thread

Open your thread, and Control+V (right click paste) it into your post. Finish your post and click [Submit New Thread], [Reply to Thread], OR to double check your work, click [Preview Post] and then submit it.

I'm surprised there hasn't been more people chiming in yet....
Get to it guys! Otherwise I'll have to enter my Junk and I'm no where near confident enough in it for that yet

Cheers

You can always email them to him and he will host them.
