Default Jotm..
Please post up here if you all think there is a chance that this can run ok on here now? I know we are still new and not very active as of yet, but would it be worthwell to get this going?

If you don't know what JOTM (Jeep of the Month) is, it will be apart of the forum where users can nominate other users jeeps to be apart of a monthly contest where their jeep is voted the best of the 10 or 15 that get nominated for that month. When the nomiations are done, we start voting. The winner becomes the Jeep of the Month for that month and his/her jeep is displayed on the forums front page (www.jeepmilitia.com), will have a pic shown on the forums and also an image/logo under his or her user name showing that they won the JOTM of that given month.

Please let me know here if you would like to be apart of this or if you think I am wasting my time.

Edit: I see alot of people viewing this thread. I would really like your opinion on this even if its a "not a good idea" post. Just give me some input on it.

Well the only reason I see the per model theme not working is that there aren't many users here as of yet. If you were to look at it now, there seems to be more wrangler/liberity owners here then any other, so it could get repeative if there are only like 10 cherokee owners. If we do all jeeps in the beginning and when we get bigger, we switch to models.

Sounds good to me. Once the forum grows, I agree with the guys above that a per model setup would be best. Give more people the opportunity to win. Also, one thing I liked on some other sites was an almost badging system, where if theyd won any of the vehicle of the month awards, there was some medal or indication of that under their username from then on. Kinda a nice pride or rep system.

Also, I like the suggestion above for themes which will also help until the site has grown. Like July could be dirtiest jeep of the month or best scenery jeep of the month etc.

JOTS Jeep of the season. (winter, fall,summer, spring)
A month to nominate and a month to vote.

Maybe make it a little more coveted?

Extra points if the photos submitted are appropriate for that season... ex... Snow shots for winter. (Bikini girls for Spring or summer!!!)

Sounds good, but IMO keep it to 1 per month, or when it gets big enough then switch to 1 per month.
