Read this New ROTM Rules.

Ok, everyone, the ROTM Contest is continuing with new rules. There will be no prize associated with the ROTM Contest. The winner will get their submission photo posted on the home page for the remainder of the the month.

Now here are some conditions for your consideration to make it easier on me or whoever else may take charge of the ROTM Contest in the future so pay attention. Only one picture. If you submit multiple pictures I won't choose. I just won't consider them, so only post one picture. Same applies to posting a second picture and asking me to use that instead of the first picture you posted. Do that and your pics won't be counted. And last, post a real picture. No thumbnails, no postage stamp sized pictures, etc. We have to be able to see them.

As always, the 4 trucks selected for the contests are randomly selected from all the pictures submitted. A member is asked to pick 4 numbers between 1 and the number of submissions without being told what it is for. Those numbers are then applied to the submissions and those trucks make the run off. It is that simple. All submissions have equal chances to make it into the contest.

These rules are the same today as they have been before. However, several vendors have stepped up to offer prizes now, so the stakes are higher. Members should try to get the best picture possible, for the theme of that month, of their rig should they be one of the four randomly selected contestants. ONLY ONE PIC SHOULD BE SUBMITTED. If a member posts a pic before the period is up and wants to change it out for another they should edit their original post to replace the old pic with the new one, simple as that.

Also, THERE IS TO BE NO "BUYING" VOTES!! If you try to buy votes you will be disqualified and another randomly selected nomination will take your place.

With some of these ROTM polls, you can have dozens of contestants. To prevent multi-way ties they randomly select 4 for the poll. There is no bias in the selection. Basically they get some random member to pick 4 numbers between 1 and however many submissions there were. the submissions corresponding to the 4 numbers selected are the 4 that go up on the poll.

So, some months you can have some pretty crazy rigs up in the polls, others you can have a bunch of stock setups facing off. Either way, it's a bit of luck of the draw, and a bit of what the membership likes.
