Arrow Ride of the Month rules & regulations


To be eligible to compete in the ROTM, you must meet the following requirements:

-Must be a member for a month prior to the ROTM. (example: joined July 21st, eligible for September ROTM)
-Must have made at least 4 posts per month over the past two months prior to the ROTM OR at least 10 in the first month of membership for members joined only one month beforehand.
-Must have a post count of at least 15.
-Must have a photo gallery set up with at least one photos. How-to: Adding a Photo Gallery
-Vehicle does not have to be Chevrolet, but must share a GM platform with a Chevrolet vehicle. For instance, a Saturn Aura may compete because it shares the Malibu platform, but a Pontiac Solstice may not because it has no Chevrolet counterpart.
-Chevrolet-powered watercrafts, motorcycles, ATVs, Dune Buggies, and cars of a different make are not allowed to compete.
-Dragsters and other race cars may compete if they have a Chevrolet body.


-If you have won the ROTM, you will not be eligible to compete in the next 2 ROTMs. For instance, if you win April ROTM, you can't compete again until the July ROTM.
-You can win a maximum of 2 ROTM titles within one calendar year. After you have won two ROTMs, you are not eligible again until the next January. If your 2nd win comes in the Dec. ROTM, you are not eligible again until the February ROTM.


-A nominations thread will be opened on the first of every month.
-Any member can nominate an eligible member's vehicle. (you may NOT nominate yourself) -Nominate by saying "I nominate BigJoe123".
-A maximum of two nominations can be made by one member, if voting has not started by the 6th day, members who have made two nominations may make another to get things going.
-Once nominated, the nominee must accept or decline.
-Up to 5, but no less than 3 candidates may compete.
-If 5 candidates are chosen before the 15th, voting begins immediately.
-A picture from the participants gallery will be used in the voting thread.
-Participants may send a PM to EvansBlue with the picture you want in the voting thread if you wish. (picture cannot be any larger than 800x600px). If the PM is not sent, then one will be selected from the competitor's gallery.
-Voting will stay open until the time posted on the last day of the month.
-Once the voting is over, the winner will write up a quick bio of his vehicle including all modifications, vehicle history, etc., and send it via e-mail to me.


In the eventuality that a tie occurs in the voting the tie will be broken based on a vote by the staff. In the eventuality that a member of staff is one of the tied contestants, then there will be a 3-day-long tie-breaker vote held in the ROTM section.


-Anything posted within the ROTM threads that is not strictly related to the ROTM or the rides and their featured modifications therein is not allowed and will be deleted.
-Any flaming, including ridiculing someone's ride, will be deleted.
-Please keep your vote confidential. Its not a big deal to share it, but lets not make a habit of it.
