Challenges

By CrazyPete

Well ive been a member here for quite a while and more and more i see alot of bickering. I personally look at challenges ALOT like a car show. When you do a show everyone goes into classes i.e. street rod, classic, muscle car, import, modern, modern muscle and other. If everyone wants some kind of format why dont we break this down. I understand everyone wants wins but how many times do you click on a challenge to see someone with their classic car going against someones daily driver import or modern domestic? Or someones full customized show vehicle against an old rusted farm truck? Personally i come here to have fun and meet people from all over the world that share the same desire. And the whole idea of challenging someone is awsome and i love the comments aspect. But then it always goes into a flaming session because of one smart a** comment, Maybe im a little crazy but i dont care what you own if you take the time and engery to work on something and feel the need to share it id love to see it. And hear about everything youve done and have gone through. But when you stack up a teenagers $5,000 ride against someones $40,000 show car there's gonna be an issue. Just my 2 cents

The challenges are a good concept. Even when someone throws their $40,000 custom against a daily driver, it gives one a chance to determine if he/she likes the custom's unusual styling or prefers the way the company designed the original.
Unfortunately, too many people have taken the challenges way too serious. As a result, regardless as to which car "wins," anymore you can't tell which car is truely more desireable because of the lobbying that goes on by some members, never mind those who recreate themselves to vote again. Consequently, even those who win, some can't really know if they are truely winners or not.
Some people can be very competitive. I guess for those who need to win at any cost, let them have their hollow victory.
As for me, I too, have lost interest in challenges.

Challenges are (in my opinion) a nightmare for the site. No they will never be fair. People grading someone's ride from photos and information that may or may not be true. Everyday we see new member signup's that are created simply to vote in a challenge. Naturally when someone signs up for a challenge they contact all their friends and people even get mad about that. I do not see any way to make Challenges work out. Just my thoughts on the subject.
