    What I’m looking for is a gallery and voting booth containing the top 5 finishers in each of the 13 build offs. So a 65 bike list where people vote one which if the 65 bikes was the best ever built up to this point.

    One builder could theoretically have a bike in there 13 times. But it’s about what the members believe is the best bike ever. So for example RM has 3 titles under his belt, but how would people rank his builds against each other as well as other winners and or top 5 finishers.

    The builder would be irrevelvant in this vote. Best bike of all time (of all he build offs). I think it would just be cool to see based on people’s preferences and personal tastes which bikes would make the top 10

    Cool concept, but definitely a lot of work for someone.

    There would be more than 65 because of build off 2 and build off 8.

    Strangely, the poll for BO2 seems to be still open. It has ‘Cast Your Vote’ and ‘View Results’ buttons visible at the bottom. I didn’t touch the ‘Cast Your Vote’ one but clicked the ‘View Results’ button to see the results and going by those results, there is a tie for 3rd place and a three-way tie for 5th place giving a total of 7 ‘leaders’.

    BO8 had 2 classes, ‘Traditional’ and ‘Anything Goes’, so 5 leaders from each would be 10.

    But yes, doing it the way you suggest for ‘bikes only’ would simply be a matter of listing the bike photos with a number for each image and members vote for the one they like.

    I think there’s a limit though on how many images can be placed in a single post, so the images would have to be placed over a few posts. And I’m not sure if us mere mortals have the privileges to create a poll with so many entries, or if only moderators can do that?

    It would be good to do but I’ve already found a problem. After going through the ‘finished’ threads for the top five in build off 3, I can’t find any images of the 5th place bike. So the main problem would be finding images if the link to the image happens to be broken.

    As @kingfish254 says, a lot of work.

    The screenshot only shows the members who scored 10 points or more. The list has 105 members on it. So that's 105 people that have placed in the top ten over all the main build offs.

    That's a more interesting stat to me. Pretty cool that over 100 people have been in the top ten throughout all of the build-offs.

    Now I wonder how many people in total have finished in all of the build-offs combined. Kind of like baseball stats, there are endless ways to analyze these poles.:nerd:

    It would be awesome if BO14 puts us over 1000 completed Build Off bikes!!!!
    I think the completion rate has historically been around 55% so that would indicate that there have been close to 1700 build off builds attempted.

    You could have a 2-4 part voting,eg: if there are over 200 bikes in the top 10 for all build offs(mmb and wbo included).
    Place 50 bikes or so in each section.
    People vote for 1 bike only in each section.
    You could then take the top5-10 and place in another voting poll.
    And again people get 1 vote.
    Then you would get the top 10 all time RAT ROD BIKES Builds...

    If we were putting together an 'RRB BO Hall of Fame'...maybe initially populate it with all the #1 finishers of the completed BOs. Then, periodically (weekly, monthly, quarterly?) compile a poll of the next-ups (the highest finisher in each build off not currently in the HoF)...and then vote one of them in. To keep it special, I would think quarterly. That would be 2-4 auto inductees (depending on how many BOs a year, or if whether all BOs feed in to the HoF) and then 4 voted in yearly...6-8 new inductees yearly.

    I think Glen captured the method for Builder rankings...except maybe spread it out some. As Kingfish mentioned, TRM's three firsts is pretty monumental. maybe 1st=20pts, 2nd=12pts, 3rd=8pts...and then 4-10 step down 1 each place from there (10th=1pt). Maybe that's too radical...but some kind of exponential gain for the top 3 or 5 places.

    I think we should do it Celebrity Deathmatch style and throw two builds in the ring together head to head each quarter :D

    But that might give me an unfair advantage since Mills Lane is from Savannah. :cool2::rofl:

    I thought about celebrity death match after I posted...but, I lack the knowledge to pull off the CGI aspects of the bouts :grin:

    That's a good way of doing a Hall of Fame I reckon.

    This would be the list of initial inductees:

    First place getters from Build Offs 1 to 13 (number of wins in [])

    Raised by Robots [1]
    karfer67 [2]
    MonsterMetal [1]
    bighit [1]
    petrohead [1]
    fordsnake [2]
    LukeTheJoker [1]
    The Renaissance Man [3]
    kingfish254 [1]
    bikewhorder [1]

    I've gone ahead and compiled a list of 'top fives' in all the 13 Build Offs in anticipation of doing some kind of poll, so perhaps, if this Hall of Fame thing goes ahead, that list can be used. It was a fair bit of work so would be silly for someone else to have to repeat what I've done.

    Glen.

    Maybe I am a bit slow and bad with math.
    We have had 13 buil-offs with 14 ist places? Did 2 come in first on one of the build-offs:39:(scratching my head emoji)

    BO8 had 2 categories, that's why.

    On a sidebar...
    This section of thread should have it's own forum before this Build Off gets archived too.
    Under Bike Talk? or Competitions?
