I see no need to change a thing. This forum was built on everyone helping one another. Maybe certain brands have won the featured tractor for months before. The only way I see to change that is for more people with other brands becoming active in this vote. I am happy to see my tractors in second and third because they are not the normal winners thus far. But that can change. I refuse to bit*h about the system. If I want something different from the system, then I find a way to change the system. Bit*hing gets you nowhere.
That's my $1.50's worth.

I totally agree with you. A lot of the original winners, including myself were some of the first people on the site. This may have influenced voting at that time. The site has grown but as you pointed out, we are still about helping one another. I have always voted for another member's tractor when mine are up for voting. Yes I love my tractors and hope they win, but I always vote for the best of the rest of the tractors being voted on.

There must be at least one more member out there who can move us to the 100 mark.

Sure would be nice to see that 63 Bolens in Canada pick up a few more votes, eh.

I'm watching it. Every time it gets close, somebody votes for the Patio. The Ford name is all-American. It's painted red,
white, and blue. What more could you want for a 'show your colors' tractor?

Kenny, this happened to me back in April voting I think it was. I had the Case 444 up there and it was against a JD... and every time it got within 2 votes of the JD, the JD got 2 more votes... it was very frustrating. I think there is a chance, but I think there are a lot of JD guys here that like to vote for their brand... (which is ok, just wish there was better shot for some of us others.)

Again I'll say........ONLY ONE John Deere has ever won the monthly contest to date! I have won & I have lost, but you don't hear me say anything about not winning. It's the "people's choice".

I am not complaining, I am sympathizing with Kenny and then also trying to make others that don't normally vote want to vote. I am not saying bad about anyone's brand or tractor choice here. Everyone has a right to make a decision they like, just saying that some more votes would be nice, because you know that even at 100 votes that is still a small perventage of the forum members here.
