If you don't whore pics if your bike no-one will know about it, and nominate you anyway.

    With so few members around since all the shitstorms that came about why make it so hard for those of us who are still here.

    Severe lack of nominations and activity month after month. Week 7 of the new year and someone has missed TLotM.

    Even the TLotY only got 58 votes out of everyone here, yet while it was active it had hundreds of views, people looking at it and couldn't be bothered voting, it happened most months too.

    Sorry to those that were actively nominating and voting, but you are the tiny minority here.
    oi i finished first ,second,and third so rack off ;]

    It's not like no one hasn't tried to generate interest in the competition. Anyone remember this thread from over 3 years ago?

    As a good example, Suzuki over thought things and gave us the rotary damper!

    Once a month is probably overdoing it as well..
    Once every three months would be plenty, after all most of the bikes here doesn't change significantly in a year and it does get boring seeing the same bikes again and again...

    I remember Zip!

    I also remember trying to drum up interest in getting the trader rating back up and running....


    I like Chris' idea of tuning the rule book

    No action on issues like this resulted in my subs being cancelled a while back, not that it matters anymore.
    The TLotM issue wasn't just members losing some interest, the site did nothing to help regain the interest.

    Not Steve's fault....or maybe it was.

    Agree with Chris too, the rules have always been a bit odd.

    I say they move to TL of the year.
    Once a year is enough.
    The TL is a dying Jap bike, sadly. They aren't making any more.
