challenges and good ole boy groups

By thejudge

I didn't know that groups were for voting challenges I Thought groups were for people of the same taste in cars could get together in forums and talk about their cars and learn info from other members and things like that.
I joined a challenge group to learn their side of the challenges and what i learned was that no one else votes on the challenges. there is about 40 people on here that vote regularly and they control all the challenges.
What happens is when some one joins they are bombarded by challenges from these 40 people with about 5 cars apiece and they accept challenges they think they should win and two days latter they are getting their ass kicked in all challenges
so they quit.
they get gun shy and wont accept any challenges from anyone. they would like to compete but they feel the rules aren't fair. and as long as this is allowed to happen their not fair.
the other problem i see is that when they accept a challenge they only vote on their challenge and no one else's if they do start voting on all the challenges then the challenge group invites them in and recruits them and they emediately begin winning and the group has a new member
thats why i say that people should have to vote on a certain number of challenges before they can accept a challenge this would force people to vote and would lead to a leveler playing field
if someone joins and gets hit with 5 challenges right off the bat then they have to vote on 10 challenge for each one they want to accept then thats 50 votes out there to help overcome the 40 votes from the group
and if you do this i believe a lot oi the people that want to challenge but wont because of the groups will go back to challenging thus adding more votes to help level the playing field till the challenge groups finally leave or break up.
I went to a car show in Ruston La. this summer in all i spent over $300.00 by time i was back home and i didn't mind not winning but there were a lot of great cars there that didn't win because of the good ole boy judging and picking all their friends cars if you ever go to a show like that then you want go back. right now that is what we have her on motortopia is good ole boys voting all their friends and passing over some really great cars.
The show our club puts on has drive through judging and the same judges judge all cars entered into the show in two days i'm president of the club and i don't know any of the judges we have one couple responsible for bringing in the judges from out of town and putting them up in a motel away from the car people
we do not enter our club cars in the show we don't want someone driveing all the way from texas in a hot rod to come to our show just to have a local car win i promise you that won't happen.
We try to be as fair as we can on judging and its an open show just like on here cars trucks bikes hot rods all years and makes in all we give out over 150 trophy's but we have people coming back year after year and some have past show winners that don't even get their cars judged because they just like coming to our show because there's no bickering about the judges or anything they always have a good time
this is what motortopia has to do is get control of the good ole boys and replace them with some sort of fair playing field and get the people back involved in challenges.
I would also like you to add classes to our cars we could put the class for the car when we add a car and if i have a muscle car i could find other muscle cars easier.
i hope i havent overstepped my boundary's here

Hahaha! I find it funny the comments that you make here when only a few month ago you were threatning to harm another member with you 45 and bury his ride, if you didnt win that challenge, whats the deal with that?

I can go into my group fourms and bring up a TON of negative comments that YOU have made about moping up in the challenges now that your in the dawg pound so your claims of not knowing anything about how it works is false.
Heres one of your comment that youve made that,

The challenge group "The dawg pound" was one of many challenge groups formed to battle each other. All of the groups fell through and The dawg pound stood alone so the members started challenging people outside the group and people started to get butt hurt about it. So now if everyone looks at the challenges we all stopped with the challenges so people would see how boring this site would be without us there are about 10 challenges going on compared to the usual 175-200. And if you look at the goups there are alot of challenge groups forming so we can have group against group challenges again you are the last person saying this is unfair because you have been apart of this alot longer than I have!!
