    If nothing else, I kind of like this top 13 make it into the calendar idea. Seems like a sweet prize to me.

    All bikes are welcome here , I love your bike but with so many bikes to pick from and only 3 votes it was really tough this time around , don't feel bad I am in the bottom with you and I am ok with it , I built my bike for me and I am happy with it no matter how many votes it gets , and the day a type of bike isn't welcome would be a sad day , we all learn from all the different styles and shapes of the bikes on here and I hope it stays that way

    Hmm, I had the blues last year after putting a lot of time and effort into a build I was sure would be a hit, but wasn't. If you built it for everyone elses approval, like I thought I did, you missed the point. Expectations will drive you nuts, don't let them. Your like your bike? I like it a lot, but regardless of how I feel, it's still your bike.

    Carl.

    I don't harbor any such suspicion. The numbers don't seem to reflect that to me. I guess somebody might do it, but I seriously doubt that many do. I also think that voting being affected by disclosure is not necessarily a good thing. How ya gonna enjoy playin' bikes with someone who is or who you think may be second guessing your votes? None the less, if it's all good to you I'm sure you're aware you are free to divulge your choices. :grin: I picked 15, 28, and 63. :thumbsup:

    I have been in a few build-off's and have been able to climb the ladder to the top.
    Being a girl in boys world and winning the Winter build -off was a great accomplishment for me.I don't even think I made the top 10 this time around.
    But that just wants me to build more and improve my skills.
    We have sub builds all year around,the annual is for you all to get in and have fun.It's not like you win anything,this year only a handful of people donated prizes,I don't understand what the fuss is about.
    Enter a comp,build a bike you want,and have fun,it's simple.
    What is upsetting is that there are hundreds of members on this site,and only a handful who participate in the build offs or vote?
    And even less moderators who help keep the site running...:113::41:

    Just build,and have fun.
    Why do feel like I'm in a mens powder room?:giggle:

    Nice choices deorman.I would ride all 3 of them.

    If you all must know,when I vote the first vote always goes to me,myself and I...I deserve to vote for myself. If you don't like your own build then what?
    82. The Weenie Wagon - Funkme
    My other 2 votes went to
    6. Artemus - Falstaff - Why? Loved the whole wagon style look and that he could interchange it into a normal bike with a couple turns of a spanner.

    32. Gasser - horsefarmer - Why? Everytime I look at it,it brings a big smile and reminds me of my childhood.I think of fun & laughter.

    This year it was all about fun.of course you can't vote for all .
    In the past I have voted for quality,style & looks and my fave builders at times.(They know who they are:grin:)

    If your statement "when you look at the voting totals" supporting that absurd suspicion that people vote for themselves, and then 2 others that they think have no chance of winning were true, this current poll would look nothing like that at all! That also assumes a "zero integrity" attitude among the builders that they would not honorably vote for their favorite builds; whatever criteria they may be using.

    I shared the following sentiment with a fellow builder, shortly after all the bru-ha-ha about voting began. Maybe it's worth sharing with the rest of you all:
    " I guess when things turn political it brings out the worst in people. Other guys talking about who's getting votes and who's not is losing sight of the reason for the community. Some of the people are keeping a good perspective fortunately. I'm as competitive as the next guy, more than most, but I see this voting process as more of a way to recognize the talents and creativity than to pick winners and losers."
    Beauty is in the eye of the beholder. Each one of our builds has it's own unique quality of beauty, which each of us holds onto dearly. If we didn't care what our builds turned out like, this whole thing would be in shambles. Let's celebrate the diversity and creativity of the rat rod bicycle and continue to support this very unique on-line community with the same gusto that was present during the builds.

    Then the name should be changed from Build Off to Assemble Off.

    build
    bild/
    verb
    1. 1.
      construct by putting parts or material together over a period of time.
    This is the first definition that came up for the word "build". I believe what you are insinuating is this word:
    cre·ate
    krēˈāt/
    verb
    1. bring (something) into existence.
      synonyms: produce, generate, bring into being, make, fabricate, fashion
    It was a "Build Off". Not a "Create Off".

    Agreed ! how ever some members are getting the wrong point its not about being " first Place " Personally i feel Ford Snake bike has better then mine in regards to having all elements from fabrication to fitment , As so does The renaissance man's bike .
    The point i have here is why are people who have no clue about the build off allowed to vote ? There are members fishing for votes from family and friends via facebook or twitter like they are running for President . They only join the sight to vote for there friend .
    Maybe there should be a so sort of format for a new member to have to wait a period of time before they are allowed to vote ? That is why you have so many members that don't vote because they don't come back any more .
    And the Build off should have either classes and or stock frame as some one else mentioned .

    AGAIN, I don't really think that is what is happening.
