Hey guys, as some of you know, I'm a web developer during the day, and for that matter, most nights as well. <IMG SRC="http://www.swedespeed.com/ubb/wink.gif"><P>I'm just finishing up a project, and wanted to know what you guys think.<P>It's called MotoVote.com ( <A HREF="http://www.motovote.com" TARGET=_blank>http://www.motovote.com</A> ).<P>Please take a look at tell me what you think, and by all means, post pics of your own cars and see how they rate!<p>[This message has been edited by coastal (edited 04-30-2001).]

As active as I was in that discussion, I haven't got a need for it. I'll only be using the rack for boards and bikes, haven't got a kayak.

Very clever, Coastal. The Vancouver air must make you very creative. Why is it that the "winner" occasionally has a less percentage of the votes? I see a picture of a 2001 XC crept in!

Thanks Prepo!<BR>That pic of the XC is of my car <IMG SRC="http://www.swedespeed.com/ubb/biggrin.gif"><P>By clicking on the car you prefer, you're giving that car a vote. The percentages that show up top after you vote tell how many times the car has been voted for. <P>My car, for instance, has won 31.2% of the time. Look at it as my batting average, which isn't too good, come to think of it!<P>I should probably make this more clear on the site, but if the winner has a lower %, that means you chose the less popular car.<P>Post pics of your cars! Let's see who has the most popular Volvos!!!

Oh man. I can't believe how popular the site is. My car has been up there for half an hour, and eight people have voted on it?! (though I see not all have voted *for* it) <IMG SRC="http://www.swedespeed.com/ubb/smile.gif"><P>- Darell

Yeah,<P>Something I've been meaning to explain on the site is that percentages are lower than one might think they should be. Though the calculations are mathematically correct, when the decision is between a V70 and a Ferarri, well, even the Volvo owner will tend to choose the Red One. <IMG SRC="http://www.swedespeed.com/ubb/biggrin.gif"> I might add that at the present time, there's a few too many exotics on there skewing the numbers. Hopefully this will change as more users submit their pics!<P>Thanks for the comments!<BR><P>

I voted for that big, honking exotic white winged thing. (Actually, Bruce...I swear yours isn't up there)<P>Mostly I vote for anthing that appears to be travelling sideways. I love the smell of tire smoke in the morning.<P>- Darell<p>[This message has been edited by darell (edited 05-03-2001).]

Man Coastal -<P>My wife just leaned over my shoulder to point out the rather explicit banner ad on the bottom of that site. <P>Saved me some surf time...thanks!<P>- Darell

Very sorry Darell.<P>We are in the process of licensing this technology to another website, and there appears to have been some crossed wires in the setup, which affected the MotoVote website.<P>Again, my apologies for any problems this might have caused <IMG SRC="http://www.swedespeed.com/ubb/frown.gif"> <IMG SRC="http://www.swedespeed.com/ubb/frown.gif"><BR>

Didn't cause me any grief, but I could forsee problems with others. It isn't often that you seen banner adds THAT explicit.<P>I wasn't sure I wanted my new car consorting with women of ill repute. <IMG SRC="http://www.swedespeed.com/ubb/smile.gif"><P>- Darell
