about all this dropping out deal...
I think that, in addition to the new rule (nomination for 2 months in a row bans you from ROTM for a whole year), we should make a new rule on top of it... like whoever doesn't want to run for ROTM (for whatever reason), has to say so in advance, just so we dont't have this kind of problems. Some people here are dropping out because they get greedy and they don't want to blow their 2 chances and then not be able to get nominated for a whole year. It's like... "yeah, all of you please nominate me, my car is badass, but the minute a better car is nominated I'll drop out".
To me that's BS. Just the fact that people are nominating their cars for ROTM is a prop to them, they should be grateful for that instead of dropping out later because they think they don't stand a chance. Winning is cool and all, but it's more about the fun... right?? Like for example, a lot of people in here have admitted trying to race (or at least keep up) with a mustang or a corvette or whatever. I mean... face it, the focus doesn't stand a chance against them, but you still do it for the hell of it, because it's fun. If it wasn't for the fun, then why waste gas knowing you're gonna loose. It's the same thing.
just my 2 cents.
I have noticed that too since the new rule has started. But if they want to drop out so let it be that way. I don't like it and I'm sure the other people that nominated the person that dropped out doesn't like it either but it is what it is I guess.

But I agree with everything you said and no it's not too late to nominate Alex

I thought that would keep the cars limited to those who want to participate, and it would also limit the selection somewhat. Then, you don't have to worry about dropouts because the owner chooses whether or not they want to run, and the public chooses which ride they prefer.

Anyway, rules, rules, rules... they can take the fun out of things, can't they?
There was never a rule stating that you only had to pick or post up your Focus in the 'Submit' thread in order to be nominated. At least not to my knowledge

^I don't think he even has that car anymore. In fact, I remember that guy was parting his Focus out.

No, I knew there wasn't a rule, but I thought that's the way it was going to be (sorry, I didn't clarify that). Those were just my thoughts on the matter.

I've seen djecua's car before (but I forgot about it). It is a very nice looking sedan. It almost reminds me of a German Touring race car for some reason. Liquid grey always has an advantage for some reason...

no problem man. I think it's time to nominate people who deserve it not just because of what they've done to their cars, but also for participating in the ROTM the way you do.
by the way, I apologize for nominating you without asking you first, I didn't mean to mess with your 2 chances, ROFL. Anyways, you got my vote this month .

And that thing about "submit your ride" would be a good idea to keep this from happening.

Ashley, why don't you think about Alex's idea... "submit your ride"

There is already a 'Submit your Ride' and there has been since last year sometime. Or are you talking about his idea about only nominating people that post in it?

I think I need to put a link to the 'Submit' thread in my sig or maybe ask Tom to put it on the main page to get more people to notice it. What do you think?
