On the featured tractor. Didn't see the reminder to vote at the top of the web page either. Every body is busy. But as I watched the voting, I keep saying to myself, I better vote before I forget. Guess what, I forgot!!!! How bad is that ,,,
Congratulations to the winner,

Noel

I try to vote each month but I'm sure I've missed some . You would think with all the members there would be at least a thousand votes each month

I always forget....there is no reminder for it on mobile themes. I rarely hit this from the desktop site.

I've never been excited about this feature. If someone else nominated your tractor, it would be more appropriate.

Interesting point LD.

Ray nominated my Struck mini dozer for the April '11 feature and it won that month.  You can nominate a fellow members tractor any month you wish so long as they haven't won in the last year.  However,  if that were a requirement,  we'd all have to post pics of every tractor we currently own.  Then we'd have to update the list everytime we sold or traded a tractor.  The way it is seems much easier.

I have 33 items in the registry.  That means I have another 75-80+ that may not be known to the rest of the members.

Wonder if there is a way the site could be programed to redirect a member to the vote page first until the said person votes then after voting the site loads the page the member usually starts with.

That would be forcing people to vote. I'd just like to see a sticky topic that says "don't forget to check out the gtotm and when you click that link it takes you to the voting page.

If your hiding something really good, I want to see it.

I kinda of agree with this. I thought about throwing a couple tractors in for it but always felt funny about nominating my own stuff...
