Suggestion

We should have an IOTY (Impala Of The Year) competition where we take all of the IOTMs from each month, and have a vote for best of the year! Winner would get a "Car of the Year" user badge and maybe some other stuff idk.

What do you guys think?

This has been talked about before but there are a few problems that need to be looked into.
Mainly when you create a poll the max number of slots currently is 10 but there are 12 months in the year soooooooo...............

Maybe we could set it up so that each person submits their 2 pictures and people 'thank' the post of the car that they want to vote for? I can see how that could get complicated though

Vote more than once and your vote gets cancelled?

I think there would be way too much confusion and it would just cost the mods more work.

I do like the idea of the IOTY but, we should be thankful for what we have. By all means though if mods are willing to come up with something, I fully support the idea

I remember this discussion when creating IOTM. The logistics of creating it are more complex than one would think.

I'd like to take the reigns on this one. People keep saying stuff like "omg no 12 spots", and they're right. But i'd like to consider a bracket style voting system. It would take awhile to do all the rounds, but it can be done. How to divide all of them up? well, it'd have to be done by the number of votes separating 1st to 2nd place. I have the ideas rolling. I might take this over if i figure out a good system to do it.

lol Also been brought up. We have the same dilemma as we have with the stickers. Not enough to make it economically feasible.

How about doing an off-site poll? Post all the pics in the thread, and a link to a surveymonkey or something along those lines.

Just a thought, because you'd be able to do a 12-way poll, eliminating the need for brackets.
