-When placing a nomination, the nominating member must state the Ranger-Forums.com screen name of the individual being nominated, as well as a picture of that individualís truck.
-The first 7 trucks with name and picture posted in that monthís nominations thread will be entered in the poll for Truck of the Month.
-Nominations will begin on the 15th of every month, and will close once 7 trucks have been nominated, or 5 days pass, whichever is sooner.
-Contributor status is not a requisite for nomination, and moderators are also not excluded from nomination.
If You are Nominated for Truck of the Month:
-Please submit your favorite and most recent picture of your truck along with factory specs and any mods you have done to it to the person in charge of Truck of the Month as soon as possible. Personal information about the owner of the truck may also be included if desired.
-A poll will be set up with each truckís mods and picture, and a brief profile of the member who owns the truck (profile optional).
-Each member will have one vote to vote for which truck they believe should be truck of the month.
-Voting will begin on the 20th of the month and conclude exactly 1 week later, on the 27th.
-Votes will be tallied on the 27th and 28th, and the winner will be announced on the last day of the month.
-In the event of a tie, a 1-day tiebreaker poll between the tied trucks will be taken where each member will have one vote.
-If a truck wins Truck of the Month, he or she is not eligible to be nominated again for at least 1 year. After the one year time period, he or she may be nominated again through the normal nomination process.
