As for not being on the front page. I am sorry. That I guess falls on me as I am one of the ones with access to that part of stuff. But it is tough to stay on top of that and all the other stuff this forum has going on. Hell that is why the blog has come to a creeping halt. This place takes up some serious time.
Maybe I don't have the full picture of what goes on behind the sense here. VS owns the site and profits from it, but they don't do any of the actual work on the site itself? The homepage is not updated by them? The emails and site promotion is not done by them? Fixing behind the scenes issues is not done by them?

For the sake of clarity, can somebody explain what VS is responsible for?

Other sites mention in the general section when special events are going on. We have a forum wide announcement that stickers are for sale, but nothing about a buildoff? Was the buildoff hyped in those silly monthly CF emails? I can't recall since I just delete them as they only contain links to threads I have already been reading. I would recommend the buildoffs by hyped in those emails a few months before they start so we can bring in more people. Why not put a note in other VS forum emails about it? If there are buildoffs in other forums VS has, I would take a look, but I am not going to go searching for them. The forum banner could be altered to state the buildoff is coming, or it is going on now. The advertisement to the right of the banner could switch back and forth from regular ads to a banner about the buildoff.

Why not list the prizes? It might motivate people to enter their bike whereas just the satisfaction of competing might not. Some people might be motivated by the cash or a new helmet and work harder to finish on time. I can't think of any other contest where the prize isn't mentioned before hand.

Bottom line: The buildoff needs a boost of energy.
This.

Mods, please stop making excuses for your inaction. If you don't like my suggestions, I understand. An extension isn't "fair", but I thought would be nice (so there were acutally bikes to vote on......). I don't care, I FINISHED, i just didn't make the official "final" post, b/c blah blah im too busy.

Mike hit the nail on the head, the buildoff, among many other things, is about the community. Without CF there is no buildoff, and without build offs........


I have a flexible schedule, and since there is no scratch to be had anyways, would volunteer my time to mod and write for the blog, since no one else will.

Make me a mod, please. But if the big wigs don't let their leaders lead, then fugit.

This place is one of the few things I actually give a fux about, and it's jacked up. I'll fix or watch it burn, your choice.

My 2 cents:

-Promote the crap out of the build off - that means front page coverage, banner coverage, ect
-Send an email out to the Dirtbag challenge folks and similar get them on this site.
-I am not sure why the dates are set where they are (winter build as opposed to summer build for in school folks) but possibly consider readjusting this..

These builds tend to bring out the best and brightest from the bottom of the barrel. You learn a lot as a young builder reading through these threads and looking for ideas, tools, and techniques. I would almost say its one of the most valuable sections of this forum, especially considering the build threads are free of garbage posts.

It's sounds hypocritical, I know. It's not about me, though. My point is not that I finished. I was actually not even considering entering into the final vote, b/c I felt like my bike was not up to snuff. Now I feel like I have to, b/c there would be no competition otherwise.

My point is that the biggest event (or at least I thought) every year is the buildoff. And it pisses me off b/c I feel the "inner circle" does not take it seriously anymore.

I am guessing the mods decided to skip the parts buildoff this year? It was mentioned but no subforum was made for it.

As per the rules(whether they were plastered in bright block letters in a sticky or not) you had to make a final build sheet and budget sheet. Same as it's been every year. Alex, I'm not trying to come off like a dick but if you didn't do that you should feel a bit lucky and relieved if the higher ups decide to let that go and include you in the short list of builders who completed their bike.

Mike-for the sake of clarity as far as I can tell VS is responsible for keeping Custom Fighters from shutting down indefinitely as well as being there for the more "executive" decisions that have to be made which includes maintenance and improvements to the site.

Also Mike I think the prizes weren't listed like they were last year because nobody was sure what the prizes would be. Someone DID drop the ball there I think and for that I'm sorry.
