That's only because you know you'd win it already lol j/k Zach. Though I know you would. I agree though TOTM/TOTY never worked on this site or really any site.

I wont delete the thread. Why would I do that? Its not breaking any rules.

You wanted our opinions, I gave you mine, just like the others did, you shouldnt take offense to it.

ATVRiders.com is Huge compared to RF, it will only be a matter of years you will be electing the same people all over again.

Someone starts to complain because its always the lifted guys or the lower guys never get chosen. or 'its not fair I dont have that much money or time to spend on my rig' etc

I have dealt with this crap before, it sucks. I think we are more of a family of truck owners, not a whos is better than whos truck.

Also TOTM for instance go look at my truck from 2007 on rps, not even the same truck, people see it and its OLD pics, never the new.


What I think would be cool is if we could get RF garage running and have people rate the trucks and their profile, then get the arcade back up and running again.

I totally agree zach. I love the rating idea. Would that be hard to set up. The only reason I said delete the thread is because I don't want start an argument. Not upset bro. You know me. LOL I hate e-drama

I don't really like the TOTM/TOTY idea, but I do like the ratings in the garage and the arcade idea.

I like this idea but the results are easily ruined by certain people. There are certain people that others do not like. Well I can go onto there profile and rate there truck '0' or 'bad' however its going to be rated.

I do like that idea but it could get messed up.

Another question on that though, would it be like the voting system on cardomain.com? Like vote for overall and then the different categories?

I don't like the idea.... really more than anything how often does a large numbe of trucks change in a month?? Honestly we know beard would win at some point... but if he's better than everyone one month and there aren't any major changes then technically he should be better than everyone the next month too... the system doesn't make sense and really it causes more problems than it does good...
