I dont think its pathetic to nom. yourself if it gets fanatics
to look at your gallery, and say wow! that car deserves to win and they throw up a vote for you.
whatever works I say...

i think if u want to show your ride off use the showcase forum...iff ppl like your ride enough they will nom you. I believe ROTM is something that should come not from asking to be nom'd and win but from those who like your ride enough to nom you and then vote for you....so here is my nomination:

The whole point is your car should standout enough to get nominated.... I agree self nomination is bullshit.

yeah but everybody knows that's not what happens. I've only been on here since Jan and can already tell that everybody just votes their friends or pst whores. ie: last months winner.

and I still nominate myself. :)

We've had this nominations argument for as long as I can remember. Every time you do it one way, people will argue for the other. At the moment self nominations are allowed. If you want to nominate yourself that's fine, and if you want to wait until someone nominates you that's fine as well. We have the 3-strikes rule so in essence you can't continuously nominate yourself or the same people over and over.

Since Ashley is in charged of this, it's up to her to set the guidelines. If you have a suggestion or feedback, I encourage you to PM her instead of posting it in this thread.

One of the few times I'll agree with you.

Not that his car sucks, but how many times has xbox been nominated? It sucks that the same set of people eventually cycle around and everyone votes for their friends. Gives people who aren't boosted/haven't thrown enormous amounts of cash into their car/etc. no chance.

I know I'm just whining but whatever, I'm done.
