Sounds like a plan. Either that, or stop doing it all together.

  Lynda, posts some pics of your new one. Maybe it will be a good one to start with.

I think Holly the guitar would be more fitting. There are pics of her in the pictures section.

I noticed that Ponte's L-05 is dubbed as Jan-Feb GOTM.

So we might be voting for March since it's way past mid-Feb... and there would only be 10 days left of it.

March GOTM - Holly - the guitar!

Yeah.  :+1:

            WELL SHOULD WE ALL JUST START VOTING ON SOME AND POST OUR OWN THREAD EACH MONTH?

Great idea

I noticed that Ponte's L-05 is dubbed as Jan-Feb GOTM.

I Know. You probably hate me folks.  :bgrin:
Two remarks though.
1- January GOTM was elected in late January
2- Like you all know I`ve been trying hard  to see someone else´s guitar as GOTM since the first day of february

how about we have a entry every month..
Every month we make a thread Larrivee FEB.(or march) GOTM

Rules:
- Larrivee guitars only
- Maximum of 5 entries
- TWO PICTURES MAX
- Entries will stop once we reach 5 or the 7th of every month, whichever comes first.
- Poll will begin when the entries conclude and will last for 1 week(or 5 days...)
- Winners must wait one year(or six month) to re-enter. (Let's be fair)

This way... we will have the GOTM by the second week of every month.. at latest...
and we all get to vote for the GOTM!

You could start the process in the middle of the month so you would be able to post it on the first of the month.

Well a multiple guitar photo has not been used before for GOTM but there is nothing against it in the existing rules (such as they are)   If the forum members decide to take the selection out of the hands of the forum admin. then I guess you can do whatever you want anyway.  I did sort of like the way you could go back to the "hall of fame" and review the past pics (before someone comments on it, no it's not because I have one there)   Recognition for your photo talents and your guitar are always welcome an coveted so I understand the frustration with the fact that the GOTM has not been consitent along the way.   If the forum members decide to choose the GOTM rather than letting the Amin. do it then you can make up whatever rules you want I suppose:  even have a Guitar Collection of the Month.
I just like seeing nice guitars photographed with skill no matter what the format.

Just my random thoughts on the matter.  I know the collective wisdom of the forum will come up with a reasonable and workable plan.

Maybe we could have some feedback from the mod's but I assumed they did not have a hand in it and Zach is just to busy to take care of it.
If that is true then maybe Zach could turn it over to the mods and they could take care of it.

I rarely see Zach here anymore.

I´m sorry  :crying:

I think the down side here is that some peoples guitars won't get voted on...how will they feel...like crap I would suppose?  if we leave this up to Zach....or who ever then no one gets hurt...you just might have to wait for them to get around to it.

If you all can figure out a reasonable and fair way to vote on a new GOTM for the next month by the end of each month, I'll try to alert Zach to change the picture each month, and if I'm not here, one of the other mods will. We'll want a link to the winning photo.

How's that?

  It's not a big deal to me. Opinions have swung so far each way that I don't want to mess with it. Maybe someone else does.
              I think your Idea is a good one but the rest need to have their say. If you started a thread it may be better, than it being one I started. A poll may help, but it's up to the forum members if it really matters or not.

I say the mods take each picture submitted, put it on their bulletin board, and throw a dart the first of each month. Every 3 months they torch the board and start again.

I actually have my bookmark to the Forum page, and rarely spend much time on the home page.

                    This is a quote from Steve:

   "When I started to add the Guitar of the Month to the home page I asked the mods if they wanted to help pick the monthly winner but got no response.  So I would pick a few candidates and have my wife choose the monthly winner."

           I think the mods would be a good choice for the ones to pick and post the GOTM.

this would involve removing politicians' faces from my dart board, which I am loathe to do

Choosing the GoTM is easy, the problem is getting Zach to change the picture.  He changed my status here and I no longer have access to the Admin section.

This has happened before, same deal.  We had a guitar of the month and Zach would never change the picture, in fact he was never here.  He made me an Admin and I changed the forum software to make it easy to edit the Home page and started the GoTM back up. 

Now we are back to Zach whom is to busy for this forum I guess...

Alright. Here's what I think we should  do.

1. Members can nominate pictures already in the pictures section.

2. A member can only nominate 1 picture per month.

3. If a member nominated a winning picture for the previous month, he/she must wait another month before submitting further nominations.

4. If a members picture has been GOTM it can not be GOTM again

5. If a member has had a GOTM in the last 6 months, another picture from that member can't be nominated again.

6. Nominations must be of Larrivee made instruments (guitars, mandos, etc)

7. nominations will be in a sticky thread in the Pictures section started by one of the mods each month. By the 20th of the month the mods will pick the top 4 (in their opinion) pictures and a Vote thread will be started (each month) so that members can pick the next GOTM from those 4 nominations. Zach will be asked to make that picture the following month's GOTM.

8. Nominations will be closed each month by a mod after 8 nominations have been received.

Great idea Randy.  I would much rather have members decide who makes it than me picking.  I got off to a bad start with GOTM this year, but I can promise to get the winning pictures up.

I made the recent picture Jan/Feb since it was put up so late in January.  Instead of cutting it short I decided to leave it up longer.  Are we starting the new process for March GOTM, or should I pick one this last time?

I'll try to keep it running so its low impact on the other mods. It shouldn't be much work once we get a routine going.

Lets leave the current GOTM in place and use this process to choose one for March.

I start a thread now in the pictures section where people can nominate a picture.
