From a few posts on the fb page, it's looking like people are interested in possibly switching it up to a themed based photo contest.

Which would basically open it up to any 2G member, whether you still own your 2G or not. It just has to follow some basic criteria.

What's everyone's thoughts on this?

What rules should we have?

Ideas?

Already know I like the idea (IMG:style_emoticons/default/smile.gif)
I think it should still include your Stratus in the photo somehow. Otherwise it doesn't make sense for the car forum to do it...
Themes should relate to seasons and/or historical events of the month. For example, snow pictures for December and a patriotic photo for July.

I like this too except it should have to include your CAR not just the Stratus (IMG:style_emoticons/default/wink.gif)

Should do a facebook poll, I'm curious how many people on there still have their Stratus.

+1, but I think it should only be current stratus owners.

Sorry, been a bit lazy about this.

So I'll have the contest start today and entries end at the first. Winner will be announced on Feb. 2nd.


Now what should the theme be?

December should be a "winter wonderland" photo theme... which was going to be my suggestion at first. We could still do it I guess, I don't have many other thoughts.
What about a location? Like... parking garage? Snow/Winter in a parking garage?

yeah like Dk89 said.. it should be based off the month and what is going on in that month.. and the leader of this contest should say like a main word for example. "snow* get a picture with your car in snow or a snow based theme.. and if you dont have snow do what you can and just get a good shot. but this sounds like a fun and cool way fo people to get out and get good pictures

My thoughts... I'd like to hear others, some are really not thought-out much.

January: Snow
February: Valentines
March: Midwest Meet (IMG:style_emoticons/default/biggrin.gif)
April: Spring/Flowers
May: "On the Road"
June: Summer Car Meet
July: Patriotic
August: Back to School
September: Fall/Leaves
October: Halloween
November: Parking Garage
December: Christmas Theme

We could do themes that related/show-off various modifications really well too, such as wheels, lowering, interior, engine-shot, retrofits, etc... but that may really reduce the amount of submissions.

I like the ideas, but for your consideration:
March: "Spring Cleaning"

Honorable Mentions for things like Best Caption, unique scene, etc.


Otherwise I like them. Id have to drive an hour to find a legitimate parking garage but I have some ideas involving cardboard and tarps (IMG:style_emoticons/default/biggrin.gif)

As much as I would like multiple facets of the photo theme contest, I doubt we will get enough participation to warrant it. Now if there are tons of people entering, then we can start thinking of doing that.

I'm okay with a "snow" themed photo shoot. Location is up to you. Snow has to be in the photo. Hell it can be in a cup and count, just make it look pretty doing it (IMG:style_emoticons/default/wink.gif)

This actually made me think of a different theme (IMG:style_emoticons/default/laugh.gif) and it's an acceptable one I think.

Hey, don't forget Car Dudes, gotta be fair to all!

Though from what I've seen of Car Dudes, it just won't work. Plumbers' crack and cussing and those who wear socks with sandals just doesn't do it for me. Ugh...

If that's so, then a pic of him washing it while wearing a pair of Dukes should do...

And a toolbelt.

Like the page, submit a photo, and for the description write "[date] [theme] submission" (replacing the date and theme with what they are respectively.)
