Anyone want to do a JK of the month?

I searched and I couldn't find one. The TJ, YJ, XJ, have them...why not us? Afterall, we definitely look the best and perform the best. If anyone wants to help set this up I will help as well.

Sure! Sounds like a great idea. Who decides the winner? I'll throw in a $100 gift certificate for the Don't Fear the Jeeper parts site for the winner. What the heck.

That sounds like a pretty sweet deal!

I think the other model's contests are done monthly. How do they select candidates and a winner?

They have 10 judges. They then have then have them email their name and 3 pictures. I think we should just have them post on JF so everyone can see.

I'm all for it. We should get some TJ guys to be the judges...They'll be the hardest to please.

I don't think that would work. They'd say the contest was forfeited since all the entrants vehicles were underpowered, plastic laden, hummer wannabes.

OK... so what we need here is one person to be responsible for collecting the entries and making the post/poll. If done as a poll, then all the member collectively get to vote.

we also need some ground rules
How many entries per month?
I think after you've won, you can't enter again for a year
how long for voting (1 week?)

Any other thoughts?

I would be happy to make an area on my website for the winners by month, so there's an online record of all the wins.

If you have webspace that would be great. Let me know if you need some help setting it up. I've got a little experience in web design. I mostly use customized CMS software.

I'd definitely be in favor of all registered users voting in a poll. Anytime there are judges they usually end up voting for their friends.

.
my web design is nill... I am all about simple. And it would be very easy to set up a section of my site for the monthly winners.

Anyway... I guess we need someone to volunteer to be the collector/poster.

I would love to volunteer to collect the entries, but I don't think I have time (or a regular enough schedule).

I think that voting should be the last 5-7 days of the month with the winner being announced on the 1st of the following month.

I think one entry per month per person (or per jeep?) is fair per month. With the winning person (or jeep) not being able to enter again at least till the next calendar year (maybe even 12 months).

Would we have runner ups or honorable mentions?

So I think its best to pick 10 judges because it avoids people from creating accounts and voting over and over. Not saying people would do that but you have to think of everything.

Once someone wins they should not be able to compete for a year. Plus they join the judges panel. Assuming we do judges.

We really don't have to set it up on a differnt site. Couldn't we just use JF? Just post a thread and have people include the following information.

Username
3-5 Pictures
Story of your build

We should take entries for 1 week.

If you would rather not post entries on JF we can just send it to someone's email then they can cc the rest of the judges.

That's all I can think of now.
