Crx of the month

Postby Crxhenson » Sun Dec 30, 2012 5:39 pm

What ever happened to the featured crx of the month post. It stopped in May of 2011. Any reason we aren't doing it anymore? I was just curious.

Reason we don't have the feature is due to the lack of people willing to do the features; the feature team kind of just fell apart. I tried putting a feature together a long time ago for Nar and got a lot of information but it's a lot more work than people realize. In my situation school just got in the way :( but if anyone is interested in trying to put together a feature talk to tonyguns he's the one in charge of it all

If anyone takes it over, maybe they should change it to "CRX of the Quarter". Or something that doesn't occur as frequently as monthly.

I'm also happy to lend a hand any way that I can to get it going again. I think quarterly is reasonable, maybe make it a seasonal theme. Summer crx 2013...etc that could be cool.

I was answering the OP question as to why it is not being done anymore...not your post. This issues has been hashed out more times than there are featured crxes.

Just thinking out loud here...

Is it possible to make up a form that can be filled out by any member, to be submitted for consideration for a feature? Include all details on car (year, engine, upgrades, etc) story behind build, any special features, custom work, race results... that kind of thing. Give a few 'rules' for photos to accompany submission. Like... front, side, rear, 3/4 view,.. interior, engine bay,... close ups of any custom work. Specify size, format etc. This would give the organizer a good head start on info and whether the car meets requirements. Then if needed follow up for more info.

I think this would cut down on the work required to get an article together.

Send me a pm and I can give you some more info and we can chat, I still have access to the feature forum. Actually the last post in the feature forum was from me back in February :lol: We're going to need a good amount of people that can be dedicated to the features if it's ever going to make a comeback. If you can code html that's a big plus, but the main thing is that we need people that are willing to put in the time and not give up on it

Because he didn't want people to simply join just so you could get the special title and color, you have to earn it via actually doing a feature. As you can see nobody actually followed through with that step though :lol:
