wouldnt your nominating them be voting for them in a sense.... i mean they wouldnt be on the list if you hadnt nominated them so...... seems like getting them on the list should be satisfaction enough, no?

But it's not listed in the rules that you can't second the truck you nominated. And as you know if more then 5 trucks are nominated that the 5 trucks with the most seconds are the ones that make it to the voting thread.

Its not a big deal, but if tom doesn't want people to do that it should be listed in the rules.

Why should it be listed in the rules? Where do you come from or have seen where someone nominates somebody then turn around and second your own nomination. In jobs across america and in schools nominations to elect someone, the person doesn't stand up front, say hey I nominate so and so and then go on to say I also second my nomination.

Thats not how it works....its called a 2nd because the 1st was the nomination.

Glenn says: i nominate person A.

Another person: i second person A.

Its how city councils and meetings and elections have taken place for many years...

Try seconding your own nomination at an official meeting..lol.

At a city council meeting it would go like this:

Member1: i nominate Jack for Treasurer.
President would say : We have a nomination for Jack for Treasurer. Are there any Seconds?
Member 2: i second Jack for treasurer.
President would say: we have a second for Jack for treasurer. All those in favor say Aye.....now all those Oppose say Aye...

And so forth...so member one would look like a retard if he seconded his own nomination..
Also at a real official meeting or election that same guy who nominated Jack would also look stupid if someone else was nominated and he seconded that person.. because when it comes to voting time...who is he going to vote for...? The guy he actually nominated or the other guy whom he seconded...cuz he only gets one vote...and if hes not going to vote for the guy he nominated then thats freaking stupid..might as well be saying.."im going to nominate u but im not going to vote for u"

Bump..i want to bump this to adress a different issue.
TOTM rules state that if a member is nominated he cant be nominated consecutive months and if he wins he wont be elgible for 12 months.

The wording is more towards the member, not the truck...so what if a member like me, low2.3, roadkill, and others who have more than one ranger truck??

For instance...low2.3 has a sweet lowered red 2wd truck and a cool 4x4 white truck. So if one month someone nominates his red truck...then it wins, well then his white truck isnt elgibile??

When nominating youre suppose to post a pic of the members truck and why it should be TOTM....
Its truck of the month not member of the month...and when u win...youre not really winning anything, no prize, just bragging rights.


I just want to address this issue becuz there are many of us who have more than 1 ranger...and i can see this being an issue eventually...

----------

Also..i see that low2.3's red lowrider did in fact win TOTM in June....so according to the current rules his white ranger wont be elgible for 12months!

Those TOTM rule line items do not refer to members. No where in that area of the rule is "member" or any relation to a "person" mentioned. The rule specifies a "candidate" which is referring to a specific truck.

So, using your example, low2.3 is still able to compete using his other ranger.

Ok i was just reading it and wanted to verify it...thanks Tom..

"If a candidate wins, the candidate is not eligible to enter the Truck of the Month contest for another 12 months."

I was assuming "candidate" refers to the person...

I have a question:
Are there any requirements for TOTM? Like certain mods done to a truck?

Or is it just a member thinks another's truck looks really cool, and wants to nominate them?

How many trucks can one nominate? Ex: I nominate a truck then nominate another truck in the same TOTM nomination thread.
