The theme is not “nonsense” the theme will make it more challenging. Exp. You could have a bone stock SRT making a jump on dirt and a poser shot but I can tell you that I would vote for the guy making the jump because hes got balls doing something like that then just maxing out a credit card online. Its more of the effort put into getting the photo. Another thing is cutting out the photoshop and cropping and limiting it to resizing only not everyone has that technology and some people are still on dial up. It just makes it even across the board. It then make individual come up with his/her own creativity.
What would be better is get rid of the “nominated” issue and just have a thread started before the month starts and have everyone who wants to precipate post a photo in the thread, (you have till this day to submit your photos) those photos taken and put into the poll. The winner of the poll get put on list so he/she can’t enter again for XXX amount of time. There are a lot of people who have great cars that won’t ever get nominated this just makes it even across the board.
The themes can be discussed over the Mods and chosen for the month but these themes will be good to start with:
Drag strip racing
cars road racing
senic outdoor shots
creative VDay getaway
wet or soapy shots
reflection shots(window, water, another car, mirror)
now because someone said they can’t enter because they can do that theme well some people can’t enter because they don’t max out there credit card on parts. If you can’t precpate that month then hopefully you can the next month this puts everyone on the same playing field. If you don’t race then put them in the carshows, sports, senic, city, wet/soapy, reflection shots month. Those that do race it lets you come in to the picture and show us what your car can do. This will make it more interesting and also cut the popularity contest out.
I say get rid of the nominated like you’ve been doing in the past and open it up and let everyone in.
I say give it 3 months if it doesn’t work then go back to the nominated way.
I say start with Senic Outdoor shots, wet/soapy shots, and all Racing themes for this trial period.
