so do you guys want to actually have judges or just have a poll? I think a poll would be much easier.


I think I will just take charge and run it. I will set up an email and everyone can email the stuff to me then I will post them.

Sounds good... Just make sure to let us know and push the date out so that people have time to know they need to get ready.

I think we should do it on a nomination vote instead of a personal entry... Then It would work the same way... Mattman would just take the first 10 nominations and then he could let the people know that were nominated and ask for pics and info on their rig... either way would work about the same.... I kind of like the nomination for the first go round the best... Or maybe we could save it for the last of the year.

The way it would work is Mattman would post up the dates that nominations should start... You cant nominate yourself and first ten nominations are in the running for a poll vote for best of the month... I think that is definitly the easiest and most fair way to do it. And I also think it will turn out the best JK's instead of a bunch of stockers throwing in there rigs and getting in the top ten(not that there is anything wrong with being stock, I was there at once too)... I just think the Nominee way would make for a closer vote instead of 2 or three modded guys running against a few stockers and the stockers not really getting any votes ya know? Just my opinion... We could also run a under $2000 spent month for the guys that are still basically stock...

Do it via poll... it's the easiest way. Not only to set up, but to keep it fair. This way you won't have people whining about the judges not being fair.

Each month give people 5 days to enter, limit it to 3 pics and a brief description of the rig. After 10 days, drop all but the top 10, let people vote on those for 10 days, then drop it to 5 and after 5 days of voting pick the winner. Let the winner put up a bunch of pics and a complete write up while basking in his glory until the next batch starts.

If all of this has already been set up forgive me, I'm far to lazy to read through the entire thread.

I like that idea but it might become kind of a pain getting the information from the people who were nominated. I am not throwing your idea away though.

Here is a second idea. People who want to be entered submit pictures and info of their rigs to the email. Then we have a group of a few judges and they vote on the top 10 out of the people who submitted. That would weed out all the stockers and stuff. Then around the 18th or so put a poll up of the top 10 and everyone on the forum votes on the winner.

What do you think?

this is kind of what I am thinking. Except probably not drop it to vote for the top 5. Just have the winner be the winner.

So are we nominating or self entering? I still say nominating is the best way... It could work the same way... Just give 5 days to nominate... Top 10 Jk's with the most votes or first 10 nominated get to run.... That simple.

I say self enter.

I don't want to have to have to go through having to get all the information from the people myself. I would rather just have them do it themselves. That would save a lot of headaches.

Yeah, I like that... With the Judges to weed out the top ten... That would probably be the best way! But I think the nominee thing could be an option for a special month or for like the last JK of the year or something...

I think this is the easiest way for sure. I would also not do the whole email everythign in, because you open yourself up to more complaints and a lot more work!

Let people post in a sticky thread and after a certian date lock it so no one can add pics or nominations. They can only vote or comment.

yeah I like that idea.

so everyone enters up until around the 17th or so and then the judges pick the top 10 and I will put up a poll on the 18th with the top 10. Then a vote to see who wins after that.

Everyone in?

I am not really worried about people complaining or the work. If someone has a complaint they can take it up with me.

I would rather not clutter up the forum with a thread for entries. I will just do that myself with the email I just set up.

Hey you're the man...man

Either way it's a great idea and a way to drum up more interaction with members!

I have not read the thread, but I have looked at the first page and a few comments on this page.

Why don't you do that for the TJ one

Why not do it like TJoTM where everyone submits and then the judges choose the top 10. Votes by the entire forum for the winner.

I already outlined a suitable system. Check the TJoTM rules: http://www.jeepforum.com/forum/f9/tj...ations-890645/
