Challenges - Waste of Time or ?

By Soupy

Filtered Content: This photo may not be appropriate for work.

Hello all...
I am concerned about some of the groups on this site making challenges a total waste of time. Their members select cars to challenge and then all of the members of the club are instructed to vote for the club member's car, even if the car that's been challenged is far superior to some of their rust buckets. This is not why this site was setup. I, along with many others, shouldn't have to tolerate this type of behavior.
I would be interested in hearing from everyone else on this subject...

Soupy - I have to agree 100% with you I get messages from members all the time wanting me to vote in a Challenge & I've even been envited to a challenge were the car that was challenging another members car was actually a Die Cast Model Car with a Photo that made it look like a real car!
the Challenges are ment for Members with Real cars & want to be Fair & Balanced, I've had other members be as hateful as can be to me during & after a challenge so I decided not to accept any Challenges!
Good Luck My friend! REV.

I am new here and at first was confused as to purpose of the site. Now that I have looked around and seen what was going on. I absolutely agree with you, especially as a new member with very few friends!

I don't understand the whole deal with challenges, when I first signed up on motortopia I remember a check box about whether or not I would want my car "challenged" I thought to myself that's stupid, that sounds like a bunch of kids saying I think my car is better than yours and I'll get my friends to agree with me.
My thoughts have only been confirmed by all the trouble it causes.I think we are all car guys (and gals) and we should stick together. I enjoy seeing all types of rides and if I don't like your taste in cars someone else out there will. I will comment on albums and garages that I like. I think that's what makes this site great !

As long as people are voting for the groups and not the rides - yep waste of time.

As a car site I find this site great as compaired to my local State car club site, no compairison. As for the challenges, I try not to get involved for the reasons everyone else left here. It can be a bad marking thing.
