    What I dont understand is why we are united as a "community" yet 5 people get to choose who is "top dawg" or "TOTM"

    Almost every Truck enthusiast forum I have ever been on has the "community" submit a nomination via PM and the top three most nominated truck go in a week long poll the last week of the month, with the results of the poll hidden so no one but moderators can see the results.

    Instead of mods choosing their favorites, I say let the forum as a WHOLE pick who they think deserve it. Let the people choose for themselves!

    this of course is my opinion. Whatever thats worth.

    It has been said a number of times.. you can PM the admins for you thoughts on TROTM.... If you have a idea on a true ROTM PM a admin..

    I'm sure all you have to do is open your message box and hit reply with your suggestion...:top:

    We do not choose our 'favorites.' If you believe someone should be TROTM, send us a PM like everyone else does.

    You can't win the lottery if you don't play:top:

    From the first post in this thread:
    We get PM's on a daily basis from members nominating another member for TROTM. This IS a community website, so the community has a right to vote for the TROTM, which they DO!

    Most members that are on XRU on a daily basis, know which members are active and helpful to others. They send us their nomination and why they feel that person should get it.
    Correct!

    With my suggestion, I should say like the other places you can only be TOTM once every 12 months or so. I dont care if you could never be it again.

    And David, your missing the point too. If 100 people send you 100 different names, 5 people choose their favorite and vote on one. Why not if 100 people sent you names and the most common top three names go into a poll and the WHOLE site picks TOTM. The community DOES NOT have a right to VOTE, they have a right to NOMINATE.

    You can only be TROTM once:top:

    Actually the members do about 99% of the suggesting/nominating/picking for us...if it comes down to a tie, then YES, the XRU Staff will always have the final say and be the deciding factor.

    The previous TROTM's were picked by members due to the fact that they felt they deserved it. Look at the TROTM threads, do you see how many times people say "Well deserved"? A lot of the people saying that are people that sent us PM's voting for that person.

    Spyder has been here on XRU almost longer then anyone; since the beginning, so has Chris, so had Gadget, so has Steve, etc... ALL of which were excellent choices by the members of this forum!!! It seems odd that you're the only one so worked up about this.:hmmmm2:

    Again, here are some of our main rules for TROTM:
    These rules have been here since the beginning...And if any of the above rules bother you, because you feel they may effect your chances of getting TROTM, I'm sorry.

    EVERY person who has been TROTM adheres to these rules; which are basically saying---dont be a prick, be nice, show respect, and it doesn't matter how much money you've spent, as long as you are active in our community, you have a chance on winning!

    I dont want TOTM. Ive been banned so im not even eligible. And i could care less about who has the most mods, that has nothing to do with it. I do however want the ability to CHOOSE.

    Im only pointing out that your system is sort of unfair to many deserving members here who have been looked over.

    Funny you mention Steve, Chris, and Gadget...you made my point right there. Thanks. Steve is never a prick right?

    Trust me, their are plenty of deserving members on thel list for TROTM, but we can only do ONE member a month:bird:. This doesn't mean that were not thinking about them or have discussed them, it just means that one person was voted more for the current month then the other.

    Steve aka BSP06XRU (not ntinhri),who just won TROTM in April...and no, he's never a prick. He's an outstanding member of XRU and had over a dozen nominations prior to the month he was elected, along with great feedback from some of the members explaing why they felt he deserved it. The XRU staff agreed, so he got the win:top:

    That's my point right there^^^!!!

    Why are you making this so difficult?:dontknow:

    I have more enemies than friends here.....Vabeach has got in for me, Yardie has been sending me death threats....and david has been sending smoke signals lately that I have been green lit..... So long chances of Top ride of the month. :biggrin: Seriously, I've always wanted to win, and I feel I deserve it. I'm a positive helpful prick! Now why can't we all get along and be friends? I love the site, but when your dog dies, you worked way more hours than you should in direct sunlight on a rooftop with no water.....This is the last kind of bickering you want to see! Yes, I dont have to read it, but come on really, is there any need for this convo to even exist? I'm going cuddle with an orange crush soda, my sittin sic leafs and a cold pillow while I lay buttnaked in a dark room with the a/c down to 60....When I wake up from my nap, I expect everyone here to be hugging and kissing, and laughing and smiling!.....If not Im going to start mailing nasty things to all the pricks here....David, I have the address to your teepee. Brad, you will get the nos cake!!!

    Seriously though guys, lets pass the peace pipe and chillax! I've had a long day! :frown:

    I'm glad the mood has lightened up now. :rock:

    I cleaned up the thread, let's try to keep that BS off the nomination thread...this is supposed to be a happy thread:biggrin:

    If any you members have a serious nomination for TROTM, PM myself or another member of the staff. It also helps if you give a reason why you believe that person should get it...

    YOUR VOICES WILL BE HEARD!!!

    Any if anyone has any questions, feel free to ask:top:

    Yea i know i was just buggin the guy, lol. I noticed that the last on the list was the Ride itself lol. Makes sence, without most of these guys alot of us, it would be a pain\hell to get things, fix things, how to things, ect. and to take the time to help one another one on one at times. Takes a good person.
