The November Triumph of the Month contest is live. Please read carefully below.

THIS MONTH'S THEME:
Post any pic of your Triumph that you want.
  • The last week of each month, a poll will be added to the thread with all the entries and you will have 7 days (or 5, depending on how quick I am to get the poll up and how well the thread is moving) to cast your vote.
  • You must own the submitted bike.
  • I would strongly suggest submitting pics with no people in it (dogs are fine) or at the least, crop them out of it.
  • Feel free to give a little backstory on your bike. Whether that be the modifications it has, how you came to own it, or just a fun story. Don't be afraid to share your bike's story.
  • If you have won in a previous month, you can no longer enter for the rest of the year. However, if you have a second bike that meets the above criteria, you can enter that.
The winner at the end of the month will win a free 1 Year Premium Membership for the forum and a custom flair under their username. If the winner is already a premium member, their subscription will be extended an additional year.

Winners will be featured on the sites gallery, found here.

Congrats to our October winner, @gauchospy!

Voting is now LIVE. This month, since we have a crazy number of entries (basically unmanageable, if we're being honest...which is my fault), members can vote for TWICE.

Poll closes December 1st.

I’m new here and don’t have a Triumph yet, so feel free to tell me to p!$$ off, but I’d like to offer a few suggestions on the photo contest.

Multiple photos by same poster:
I do regularly participate in another motorcycle forum‘s weekly photo contest. In that thread, we have a rule that submitters of photos for the contest limit their submission to one photo. That way, we vote for the person and their one photo for the weekly theme. In the last two months contest here on T-RAT, I’ve noticed that some members post more than one photo. When they do this, how are we to vote for which photo on voting day? Would it help to add a rule that each person put only one photo in the contest, simplifying things for voters and the mods? (I’m not referring to the obvious mistake double pic posts in posts #10, #13 & #14)

photo roundup:
On the other forum, first thing on Friday, voting day, someone makes a post or multiple posts, depending on number of submissions (that forum has a limit of 10 pics per post), rounding up all of the week’s submitted photos. Just the photos with the member name, none of the fluff that happens in-between (like this post ;)), so voters have them all together to look at for voting.

Just my $.02. Really enjoying this forum as I research Triumph models and their issues. Thanks for a great site. Carry on.

For the record, here’s that thread on that other forum.
@RichRod, did you just volunteer to take this over? In reality, my work load across the, geeze, 800+ sites I manage, has increased substantially the past few months and these contests aren't getting the attention or TLC they deserve. Its getting increasingly more difficult to run these properly. I would much rather see a forum member take it over and tag me in as needed. Letting the community run it just makes more sense to me. If you're interest (or if anyone else is for that matter), shoot me a PM.

-Mike
