OK, I'll make this simple. Per the rules set by Hemee when TOTM was established:

Quote:
Schedule:
• Nominations will be opened mid-month for the following month's candidates

• Nominations will be closed by the 25th of the month

• Voting will be opened as soon as the nominations have been closed

• Voting will be closed on the last day of the month

• Winner will be announced in the voting thread on or about the 1st of the month, then will be posted in the Winners Thread and featured on the Home Page



No nominations were received by May 25th, therefore there will be no TOTM for May. But we'll certainly give it a go again next month! Oh yea, per the rules Jeff DOES have the right to decline a nomination, so maybe we should ban him next month, just for a month so he can't decline his nomination?!

I understand the wanting to respect Jeff. For starters, he declined the nomination and clearly doesn't want to be recognized despite all he's done here.

Second, I didn't make the rules, but it is my job to follow them. I can't enforce some rules, yet ignore others. The thread for nominations was opened way back on the 16th. It is not MY fault that nobody took the time to nominate anyone. I even bumped the thread two days before it was too late, but still nothing.

You may not like it Tony, but I am not the one to blame. Even if Jeff HAD been nominated before the 26th, he still would have declined, so nothing's changed, except that you're cute when you're angry!

Jeff will forever be respected here, nothing will EVER change that. The entire Ram SRT10 community will forever be indebted to him for all the work he's done.

And again I must stress, TOTM is about the trucks, NOT about the owners. PCB is about the owners, NOT about the trucks..

For what its worth, those rules were mine, and Linda posted them for me. More than once I bent the nominations rules as they are a guidline not absolute. Like the Admins give a **** about this forum anyway

I declined for my own reasons, and I at least provided a replacement to my nomination....


I know, I forgot to provide the name, but I'm not going to go back and look because it's still a done deal. I think the thing that I'm courious about. When your late because your time has been otherwise spoken for, thats OK, but when someone else is late, rules are rules

Sorry to be honest, but I just am




Is your Viper Truck on the Viper Truck Registry?

Jeff, I respect you as well as your honesty. I thank you for your feedback. I've apologized in the past when I didn't get things running on time. I can't take back mistakes made in the future. None of us can. Do you really think I am bending the rules for me, but not for the rest of the forum when I get too busy to start the thread or a poll on time? Would the forum as a whole want me to just abdondon the TOTM for a month if I don't get things up and posted in a timely fashion? I'm a busy person, but I'm doing my best to follow the guidelines Jeff layed down before me.

This is not my forum, it's our forum, I'd love to hear what everyone else has to say about this topic. If everyone agrees to accepting nominations past the deadline, then we'll ammend the rules. It's not a big deal to me, they're not my rules. Seems fair to me that the forum members should be the ones who set the rules. At least the active members should...

But for now, I have to draw the line somewhere. What if I start a poll today, then someone wants to get nominated tomorrow, do I erase the poll and start a new one? A line has to get drawn somewhere.

For this month, I started the nomination thread ON TIME, and even bumped it, and there were still no nominations. Now, three days past the deadline I'm getting nominations. If everyone agrees to changing the rules, we can change them this month, so they can take effect next month. We live in a democratic society, so it seems the majority should rule on any changes to Jeff's original rules for TOTM. I don't feel empowered to be going and changing any rules without the expressed verbal consent and agreement of the rest of the forum members.

If everyone gets upset that there is no TOTM for June, then hopefully we can steer that frustration towards July and get more nominations.

If anyone wants to nominate changes to the TOTM rules, post them up. I'll start a poll and run it for ten days, and the members can decide on the changes. That will give enough time to make the changes and put them in effect before starting next month's TOTM competition. Sound fair? If not, I'm open to new ideas.

Tom
