October YJOTM Enter Now!!

Round ten of the year and we have not only metalcloak on board as a sponsor with a $100 gift certificate but another little prize donated by one of our members who wishes to remain anonymous. It's going to be an exciting month for entries, I can feel it! No videos this month because iOS 6 is stupid and the YouTube app will not embed videos anymore.



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.

I know it's a newb question but do we just pm the entries to you. I have wanted to enter for a while but all I have to enter in on is my iPod and it sucks to try to type all of it out. The prize is enough to change my mind though.

Cut off? Well since today is 10/11/12 let's make it on the 21st at 2200 pst. Ten solid days to get them in and for me to get them sorted before the contest.

And depending on how the Giants do in playoffs, there will be either 5, 10 or 13 entries selected for the contest.

Anti used to have a link in his signature to instructions... maybe he still has that handy

You have to host them on some other photo hosting site, and then copy the image tag to your pm.

Ultimately you don't attach the pictures, you just include a link to them.
