We've tried different ......Of The Month features with varying degrees of success.
I'd like your views on the following:
1. Pump Of The Month.
I'd like to resurect this feature. An example of what I would like to see is someone post Pump Of The Month for February is Tokhiem 39..........then post some info on the pumps like the year it was introduced , different variations like 39EP, 39A, etc, and tell what those variations were. Then ask for everyone to post any 39 they have, restored or not. What I don't want is a guy that says Pump Of the Month is any clockface.......
I'd like your opinion on this. Is it worth pursuing? Who would want to oversee it?
EMAIL me with your thoughts on this!
2. Sign Of The Month.
This was another feature that could have been great. We tried limiting it to pump plates but most companies didn't use enough pump plates to keep it interesting. We tried including all signs from the featured company and I thought it was much better. What I would like to see is for the person overseeing Sign Of The Month to post the featured company, and the rest of us to post signs from that company. I would like to see info on dates used also. The person overseeing this would have to work a little harder than the pump host because he'd have to post info on dates, etc.
I think this could be very interesting. Who would want to oversee it?
EMAIL me with your thoughts on this too!!!
3. Globe Of The Month.
This has been the longest running ......of the month features. I really like hosting this feature, but in recent months I haven't gotten much support. I've tried to cover companies from all over the country, as well as globes from other countries.
Like I said, I really enjoy hosting this feature.....but do you enjoy it? Is there enough interest to continue this feature?
EMAIL me with your thoughts on this!!!
Although it appears there is/was little interest in these features there are alot of guys that read and learn that don't post. Look how many members we have (1733), now look at how many guys actually post. You guys that just read need to jump in and share your knowledge with the rest of us. If you're new to the hobby jump right in with your questions. Those of you that aren't registered should register and join in the fun. This is a great site, but we need more people to get involved!
