Ride of the Month General Rules:

1. The Ride of the Month coordinator will put up a thread on the 1st of each month.
Submissions will be accepted until the 15th of this month (4 pm edt). After the 15th, a poll will be setup and results posted after the polls close at the end of the month.
2. You must own the car.
3. No commercial advertising of any kind allowed when submitting photos,
ie. no license plates from commercial vendors or sponsors. Professional photos are ok.
4. Keep it clean. Cars only (No bathing suit models, etc).
5. Any previous member winner cannot compete again.
6. Only SLK/SLC vehicles are eligible for the contest.
7. Only one vehicle at a time (if you own more than one slk) can be submitted.
8. You may submit 1 photo but no more than 3 photos.
Just submit your photo(s) in the thread.
9. Members caught creating new accounts to increase their score will suffer disciplinary action.
10. Entrants should not solicit votes publicly or by private message for themselves or other entrants. In addition, members that belong to car clubs that have an entrant as a member, should not encourage their members to vote for the entrant. This makes the competition a popularity contest rather than a car contest. Those caught doing so will suffer disciplinary action/removal from competition.
11. In case of a tie, the moderators will decide the winner.

Prizes are:

* A site badge for your posting profile/user profile for the winner.
* Your car featured on the home page for the winner.
* A free one (1) year premium membership for the winner (if not currently a subscribing member).
* Free entry to the 2018 Ride of The Year Competition.

It's best to add photos using the attachments method.


This means that they are hosted by the site and we (mods) are better able to help
with sizing and creating the final poll.


Myk's tip:- upload no more than two at a time, then go and upload 3rd before closing window.
I find that if I upload 3 at a time the system sometimes times out and you get something like
a 'ticket or token expired' message.




Mercedes Benz SLK Forum - FAQ: Reading and Posting Messages
How do I attach a file to a post?
To attach a file to your post, you need to be using the main 'New Post' or 'New Thread' page and not 'Quick Reply'. To use the main 'New Post' page, click the 'Post Reply' button in the relevant thread.
On this page, below the message box, you will find a button labelled 'Manage Attachments'. Clicking this button will open a new window for uploading attachments. You can upload an attachment either from your computer or from another URL by using the appropriate box on this page. Alternatively you can click the Attachment Icon to open this page.
To upload a file from your computer, click the 'Browse' button and locate the file. To upload a file from another URL, enter the full URL for the file in the second box on this page. Once you have completed one of the boxes, click 'Upload'.
Once the upload is completed the file name will appear below the input boxes in this window. You can then close the window to return to the new post screen.
What files types can I use? How large can attachments be?
In the attachment window you will find a list of the allowed file types and their maximum sizes. Files that are larger than these sizes will be rejected. There may also be an overall quota limit to the number of attachments you can post to the board.
How do I add an image to a post?
If you have uploaded an image as an attachment, you can click the arrow next to the 'Attachment Icon' and select it from the list. This will be inserted into your post and can be located where you want it displayed.
To include an image that is not uploaded as an attachment and is located on another website, you can do so by copying the full URL to the image, (not the page on which the image is located), and either pressing the 'Insert Image' icon or by typing
after it, ensuring that you do not have any spaces before or after the URL of the image. You can insert pictures from your albums (?) in this way too.
