Here are the Nomination Rules:
1. Nominate one of our member's bike for Bike of the Month - include up to 3 flattering pictures of the bike in question.The Nomination MUST MUST MUST MUST be accompanied by the member's User Name, a link to the thread where their bike is best described (Build thread, Show n Shine etc.) and a PHOTO of the bike in question.
2. Someone seconds the nomination (please only second one nomination)
3. Member should accept the nomination
We will accept nominations till we have a good selection. A poll will be set up and voting will take place for the remainder of the month. Whoever ends the voting period with the most votes wins
As a reward, we will use a picture of the winner's bike on the site banner for the following month.
If you have an opinion on whether a bike should have been nominated or not, is qualified or not, or whatever, PM ME - this thread is NOT the place to debate the merits of a nomination.
I've kept this contest open to all for over a year and that's the way it is. If you don't like a nomination, don't Second it, and ultimately don't VOTE for it. So if someone nominates a milk-crate full of pistons and crank bearings, don't get your panties in a knot and start pulling your hair out. Relax, have a drink, and get back to building your bikes.
If the collective membership is dumb enough to vote for said milk-crate full of spare parts as the BOTM, then so be it and I'll make a pretty banner of the parts (which would look cool BTW). I'm a strong believer in democracy and the power of the vote.
