Only Racing Jon does a really good job at Search Engine Optimisation so I know that if I type something in it comes up on at no less than the second page so it could just be people looking Bob.

One way is to get out the word, there are alot of people sitting at home looking to expand on their jobs or even get some idea's for a possible new career. I know this is how it came to me in photography then into graphics and web design. I believe that the "Forward Thinkers" could find some service in being part of this even with the rules outlined here for advertising. I know I always look at a members profile and see if they have a website or something like a journal or gallery and will help to push it along in some way or another.

This should be part of todays mentality IMO with the net taking everything over.

There are those who feel they would be doing something wrong by going to another message board as in the standard "clique" of the way people engage, I doubt putting something on the HAMB would help but most likely hurt in some ways, it all depends on how they view hotrodders.com

Mark,

I went back and looked at how many times this thread has been viewed ......220 times. I know some of those views came from the artists, but only 12 votes and 220 views??? It would be great if some of the guys who are looking and not voting chimmed in and told their side of the story. maybe there are a lot looking who have not signed up as members .......I would love to hear from them.

Over at the HAMB forum they get 7 pages of entries on the Friday Art Show .... some of those guys are here in this forum and maybe we need to put the word out to them and hope to get others over here. They don't have a monthly or weekly subject, but I'm sure those artists must have some drawings or photos that will work with what we have going on here.

This months it's the 1950's Rock and Roll era. I'm sure we all have something that would fit into this area. I hope that we can get more people entering this month and all that this forum to start voting. Hope 2011 will be a great year for HotRodders .........

KENMO Congrats 57 Corvette... Great win and some darn cool stuff....

Only Racing I tried that early on and the off topic forum didn't want it there which I can seeas double posting. I don't know how to make this take off, the artists work speaks for themselves. It's very odd to find a talented group that is willing to take time and do something for the sake of others enjoyment without anything lying underneath.

Maybe we can come up with something soon. I've tried money, free stuff and more, but as in any forum it's all about placement.

Hey fast, I'm also concerned about the voting and participants, I am personally responsible for missing quite a few myself, yet this is a large audience, and Jon's search methods and how I label this stuff is easily found on the net. I think the ressurgence of Face Book has taken away from forums as of late. I said I would never have one of those facebook things yet I did it, I find nothing as a business but most of the forums these days are pretty dead since I deal mostly in drag racing. This is one forum I read almost everyday. I do hope the count gets larger and more people play.

I don't do any art but I always follow along and vote when I find the new thread.

Perhaps a link to the next monthly contest thread will help some of us follow along.
Every little bit may help.

Any car, any year as long as it makes you think of American Graffiti. Hope that works for everyone ........
Bob gets the call on this one, look for a new topic for January's Art Contest "Fifties Rock And Roll Era Rides".
