: Voting and running for COTM :confused:

My question why is it so many people can post in the day and night. But getting people to take a few seconds to vote for cotm we only wind up with 30 or so votes when back in the day it would be double that plus there would be 2 to 4 people running. And even running for cotm why not take pics after a good clean and wash and save them so you would have them to run with. We have had all kinds of winners from mild to wild so dont think a lack of mods is a reason not to run. Any comments feedback is appreciated! :confused: :tongue:

My personal hold back from running for CoTM was because I didnt want my car blasted all over the homepage and banner without RIMs.
I still ran anyway ... but that was my reasoning for it.

As for voting, there is no reason not to vote :)

I so feel guilty now. But I'm with killer. I wanted to wait a little bit longer until I had more mods under my belt. Voting? That's a different story. (: everyone should be able to vote. I know I'm a slacker in that department, though. ):

dont feel guilty jess this is just stuff i have bin seeing over the last year or two. im on other hyundai sites and voting on them crushs what we few we get plus more people use to take the time to vote on here and even run. i just made this thread to see if i could get a few answers as to why nobody runs or votes.
so thank you for tossing up your feed back on this subject! :nosthumbs

very good question! i think even bimonthly might get more people to run and have more like back in the day when 3 to 5 people ran!

Are we going to have one?

weve debated it many times.
its a struggle to get anyone to run anymore.
everyone just says "my cars not good enough" or im getting a ___ soon, then ill run.
but people just say that for years and it never happens.

tell us, how would you get people to run? what do you do when no one runs? give us ideas / opinions etc. :D

COTS. Still a strong believer.......Hey have you seen the way New Tiburon does theres.....Best Picture, Best Engine Bay, Wildiest car, Most Hellaflush (Boo hate trends), etc. Wouldnt be a bad Idea. It would make it more interesting and competitive.

Weekly might be too many, but it would really blow the Hyundai (http://www.pugihyundai.com/)traffic on the site up. lets go with it.

How would you run for COTM?

briando

how are we supposed to vote for COTM is there are no photos of hyundai (http://www.mccarthyolathehyundai.com)models to vote on

Wow, didn't know voting was that exciting. When COTM was still going, it was like pulling teeth to get anyone to run. So it just kinda went away. Killer90 was the last COTM.

On another car forum I am on, we do picture of the month. Just one pic, no comments, no photoshop, and it just shows the ride being as bad *** as possible. Anyone from complete stock to crazy mods runs for that. We usually get about 3 to 4 people to do that every month. We not do that here instead? Then people can vote and be happy, also we would then get a pic for the ElantraXD logo every month.

That's not a bad idea. I think just about everyone who wanted to run took a turn being COTM sometime in the past, then lost interest. At least a photo could be of completely different things, even if it's the same car.

i'm still waitin for pictures or for someone to make a decision on how we can vote for hyundai (http://www.pugihyundai.com/)of the month

I would definitely run if we had a cotm on here

It should not be reserved for XD's and XD2's only. I think we would have more running with MD/UD, hd, velosters, genesises(genesi?), sonata, and many others

Considering its an elantra forum, I think all gen elantras should be able to enter, not all sorts of hyundais.

When COTM was active, it had always been open to 2001+ Elantras. And even older Elantra owners in a few cases (for active members.)

I expressed to the new owners of EXD that COTM was one of the things that was taking too much time for me (especially with not having direct FTP access to make changes to the banner up top.) I suggest if you want to see COTM back that you contact Dwayn (member name Admin) and see if he wants to run it or perhaps ask someone else to run it.

i think it should be open to all generation elantras but def not open to other cars. EOTM is what we should call it :D

Still not finished maybe by the fall. Got to finish my minor details to make it stand out that much more. I replied exd at SOWO this year lol. It was funny seeing all the euro people snapping pics wondering what am I driving

According to the rules of COTM :

1. Only 2001-2011 Elantras are eligible to be a Car of the Month since this website is focused on those particular models (earlier generation Elantras may be given special permission, PM SuperGLS for information). The owner of the car must nominate their car.

I have a 2012 elantra limited . Does this mean I am not eligible to run ?

SuperGLS

Greg, you'd be eligible if the contest was still active. Thing is, the thread hast been edited since before the 2012s went on sale.

Seeing a COTM with a car up on blocks would be epic.

Those wheels are not my cup of tea, but if you like them go for it.
