Challenges suck

By 00_Maro

Challenges, wow, what a disappointment. I am not a sore loser because it is obviously not a vote on the cars. The same people vote on the same cars of the same couple owners and then leave the same comments. I am not saying I should have beaten all these cars, but the votes should have been a lot closer.

To those of you who gang bang people on challenges, you are truly pathetic. Do you people get off to winning challenges or something? Take some advice, winning challenges does not make you or your car any cooler. Do not ask me to accept a challenge, you and your cronies are the real losers.

Yeap, these people have no brains whatsoever instead of making this a fun thing they ruin it for everybody, so I turned off the challenges to all the **** pound mowrons. and I just make fun of them at every turn, also I call upon all camaro owners to vote againt them on all their challenges so that they can feel an enjoy the same crap that they do to us!
besides have you seen the lame crap that they compete with, I am going to make a separate picture album with photos of my lawn mower and post it with a heading of (reserved for pound only members) I would actually love to see a bunch of member car sites in motortopia have this done in the personal pages, and take it from me if enough people would do this the pound would fall apart!, and you can get very creative with this and have alot of fun aggrevating all these idiots, how about a picture of a water pick, lawn mower, washer machine, broken sink, toy car, and you could actually send them challenges on these items with a few funny comments, such as ( are you man enough to challenge my superchraged sink!

unless you belong to 1 of "the groups" just avoid challenges, this site and the people on this site are such a joy to get to know. even alot of the members of those groups are good people, you just got to get to know them. please dont judge the site nor the people of this site based on this experience. there are so many good reasons to be part of Motortopia!!!

:-) hey so what, I challenges 3 cars and 2 were not as good looking as mine and I lost all 3 times. I guess when you have 2000 friends in your list, it helps. But at least I CHALLENGE, take it easy man, it's all for fun and you should just have fun driving your car, no mater what others think of it, no?

That's kind of harsh. I agree, the "spirit" of the challenges was lost long ago, and I have suffered "big" losses in challenges bloated with comments that are nothing more than a group's insignia. However, we must acknowledge that there are no rules against lobbying for votes from friends and group members. I finally just quit participating in the challenges -- that seemed a better solution than trying to change peoples' minds about how to use the challenges to get real results.

you shouldnt judge EVERY member of the pound, i am the co creater and if you look i dont challenge anybody, i dont attack noobs, and unless you challenge me i dont participate unless its against other people in the pound. its been posted in news bulletins and on the forum to vote for the car u think is deserving instead of just cos you know the person. so not all of us are bad just a few of the many give the whole group a bad name

I could not agree with you more. It was even found on their open forum, then it was moved, of how they felt about the voting.
It is a shame when you have a car that you love, put hard work into, only to have "Crews" all come out to vote in this manner.
But this is how groups do, vote for me, I vote for you. We need your votes my guy is losing. Those were some of the items that are no longer visible.
Best wishes to all who may try, and to those who lose (and should have not)!

look at the top 10 on the challenge winners list and they are part of the Dawg Pound- a group solely created to do group member challenges and then post in their private group to go vote against you so even a family van beats a great car.
alot of their members are on your friends list.

challenges are a total joke here and a waste of time. turn off your challenges, the dawg pound of 129 members ruins a great thing on this site.
look at the member list of the dawg pound and find they are the ones challenging you and winning but a great many because of the way they do business.

and why do they do this, to stack wins in their favor to win what measly lil prizes there are for wins in a month.

same thing at participant voter car shows, all the friends vote for their friends and no real car wins.

sad state on both ends
