Site Recommendation

Miguel brought something up on the bike of the month thread that got me thinking.
There are forums out there that have little award/medal icons they put under the avatars.
What if we did something similar?
Maybe do a trophy icon for bike if the month - gold silver and bronze?

I'm gonna be honest and blunt. I think this is a little over the top. A little silly and juvenile. But that's just me...

I agree with Jon. If somebody didn't win when he really wanted to, maybe that will light a fire in him. Something to strive for.

I too agree with JD.

I don't feel the forum needs something like that. The iTrader is all that is really needed. I've seen the other forms with all that it just ends up looking cluttered and a bit confusing.

Just some other thoughts about this

Adding that to our forum would only breed competition between members. That's not we're about, we all have an amazing machine.


We all know who has a bike to note, be it heavily modified or a perfect example of OEM.


Personally, reading about other members talk about my build/bike means a lot more than some little icon under my screen name.

Thinking of it that way makes sense, to a point.
I agree first, second and third is a bit over the top.


Still think if you win bike of the month, it should be in your signature or something.
What's the point of doing the contest if you can't brag about it for the year?

We all know we have amazing machines, some are much better maintained than others.

Adam - When you win, I'll state it proudly in my signature. Make sure you remind me; I will do it
