Member Awards (A Slight Modification)
 
Dont go bashing this idea before you think about it.

I was thinking after i read the hate that people had for the Member Awards that Harry proposed. Here's my idea:

Made it fun, have like a few awards:
Member Of The Month
Mod Of The Month
Car Of The Month
New Member Of The Month
Top Poster Of The Month

somthing like that... something fun that anyone can win and wont stimulate too much competition. Maybe each months "winner" get a free sticker or t-shirt (when we get them made)

thoughts?.. feel free to add categories.

see those are better than Harry's. Other sites like cardomain have stuff like that and its a pretty kool idea

xsperf 10-12-2005 02:55 PM

Good idea, only a few issues... we probably wouldn't be able to give away tshirts because that'd get pretty expensive to do each month. And also:

Member Of The Month - Cool idea, but how would we choose? And based on what criteria?
Mod Of The Month - There's only 3 mods...
Car Of The Month - Wouldn't that kind of compete with rate-my-car?
New Member Of The Month - There are very few active new members, so we'd probably have a similar situation as with mods, with few choices.
Top Poster Of The Month - Would this be in quality or volume?

yea i should have been more specific, i meant mod as in car mod of the month.

and poster of the month we can discuss. maybe we can nominate people for the monthly award. and i dont think the car of the month will compete with rate-my-car, would be more like a showcase of one car that maybe we as a community nominate/vote on.

Member Of The Month - atleast 5 posts per day- friendly-promotes the site-helpful. ?
Mod Of The Month - what about mods, like new bumper, rims, whatever. who ever has teh best mod wins. lol
Car Of The Month- the #1 person in rate my car gets the car of the month. lol

umm I like it.. but a few things.

yes mod of the month... whatever we feel is the best of the month. could be as simple as a bumper if it makes the car greatly better, doesnt have to be a touch screen with biometrics (harry :lamo) or cost alot. whatever we think is good.

umm using rate-my-car is gonna be hard, the rankings dont change too much. maybe the person who moves up the most in the rankings? (harry is it possible to track this?) or maybe we pick out like 10 random cars and vote on the best one.... :dunno

yea and new member.. maybe not.. just a thought

member of the month can have more criteria than just 5 post per day... could be all encompasing.. like recruited a person, made a DYI, and/or did something that made him/her stand out.

these are just my thoughts feel free to add/subtract from them

Hum, or a bit of a spin, an idea we joked around about a while ago, but would actually be pretty cool...

what about post of the month. Like at the bottom left of each person's post, where there's the Online/Offline bubble, and the Report Button, have another button for nominating that post for post of the month. At the end of the month, whichever post gets the most nominations should have that post showcased somewhere or something. :dunno

Or not. lol

I think thats the best idea of all of these. I'm not that crazy about the awards idea but I really like this qoute thing, you should be able to nominate and then they all go up as like a pole to choose from. I say you should not be able to nominate your own posts, and that you take the top5 nominations or something. But I dont really like the other ideas.

Rooz 10-12-2005 06:34 PM

I like the original idea better :( ...

voca 10-12-2005 07:09 PM

what if we just did car of the month. I know we have the top 100 cars, but I mean, deloriants 328 has been #1 since like creation (which he deserves cause his car is amazing) but car of the month would always be different. and put a small pixel reward icon (star etc.) or something like this:

Rate My Car Rank: 3 out of 121 http://files.unitedbimmer.com/ub.c/voca/q.gif

(yeah its a quicktime icon, whatever, you get the idea.)

and then in their garage also have a full size award icon and a compliment from the admin or admins that chose that car.

like this: before every comment on the car is a seperate but similar looking comment box layed out basically the same but with an award image (whatever it might be) and it's just a comment by komodo or whoever nominated that car for the award complimenting the car with an expanation of why they chose it.

http://files.unitedbimmer.com/ub.c/voca/award.jpg

obviously that award graphic isn't whatd be used but jsut so you get the idea. I'm only brainstorming here.

some of you people might remember werkz did something like this, they submitted every month a different car to the "car of the month" forum or something.

projal147 10-12-2005 07:38 PM

i like the post of the month thing

Spieluhr 10-12-2005 07:48 PM

I like the car of the month idea, because "rate my car" gets little attention, the standings don't change that often.

post of the month is a great idea, it can be anything funny, witty, or really helpful.

and I also like mod of the month, another good one.
