Accord of the Month Rules -- READ before you do ANYTHING here!

Welcome to the Accord of the Month section!

Each month we will be accepting nominations for the AOM competition. Halfway through the month, the nominated cars will be put into a poll where members can vote. The car with the most votes wins! Simple as that!

Unfortunately, it's not totally simple... So, here are the rules! Read them. Follow them. Or the car you're nominating WILL be disqualified! We want everyone to have fun, so follow the rules and things will work out fine!


I want to post this so that everyone can see how the AOM system is run. There may be slight changes from time to time, which would only serve to streamline operations. After the first months, we may have learned a few things and want to update the rules.

1) Accord of the Month Requirements
In order to be AOM (Accord of the Month), there are a few requirements. These requirements must ALL be satisfied in order for the nomination process to continue for an individual.
- The current vehicle owner must be a member of CB7Tuner. Only the current vehicle owner may be eligible.
- The current vehicle owner must be in one of the following usergroups: Registered, Moderator, Administrator.
- The AOM must be a 4th Generation Honda Accord.
- There must be no considerable damage or missing body parts on the vehicle at the time of nomination, unless said changes are meant to aesthetically enhance the vehicle's appearance or increase performance. The vehicle must be in full operating condition at the time of nomination.
- An AOM-winning vehicle is ineligible for AOM consideration for a period of six months after it was last awarded AOM.
- The owner of a nominated vehicle MUST be an active member of The owner will recieve a PM from the forum moderator upon nomination. A reply must be received by the end of the nomination period or that car will not be included!

2) The Nominating Process (1st-15th)
- A thread is to be created in the Accord of the Month forum by CB7Tuner Administration for nominations at the beginning of every month.
- A list will be created in the Nomination Thread listing the past 5 AOM vehicles. Vehicles on this list are ineligible for AOM nomination.
- Self nominations are not allowed.
- Members must have at least 50 posts in order to nominate a vehicle for AOM.
- A member may only nominate ONE vehicle per month!
- When nominating a vehicle, please do so in the thread dedicated to nominations ONLY. Any posts in other threads will be deleted.
- When nominating a vehicle, a detailed paragraph explaining why that car is being nominated. If no explanation or picture is provided before the voting stage begins, that nomination will be removed from consideration.
- The nominated vehicle must have a valid Member's Rides thread. The thread must be in accordance with the rules here. A link to the nominated member's MRT MUST be included in the nominated post(Preferably embedded in the nominating picture).
- The member nominating the vehicle may consult with the vehicle owner in compiling the write-up and pictures.
- No discussion is allowed in the nomination or voting poll. In the nomination thread, all posts that are not valid nominations will be deleted. Seconded or duplicate nominations will be deleted.
- No campaigning is allowed anywhere on the board during the nomination stage. (no threads, posts, or signatures will be tolerated.)
- The nomination thread is to be left open until the 15th of the month. After the 15th, the thread is to be locked.

3) The Selection Process
- CB7Tuner Administration will select all valid nominations for use in the AOM voting thread and disregard invalid nominations based upon the requirements set forth above.

4) The Voting Process (11th-25th)
- A poll is to be created by CB7Tuner Administration in the Accord of the Month forum where all members can vote for the AOM.
- The voting thread is to be left open until the 25th of the month.
- The poll is to include pictures and descriptions for each vehicle being voted on.
- In the voting poll, ALL posts not made by CB7tuner Administration will be deleted. The point is to make voting and nomination as objective as possible. If you don't agree with a particular nomination, then don't vote for it.
- No campaigning is allowed anywhere on the board during the voting stage.
- The winner of the voting poll at the end of the month is to be the Accord of the Month for the following month.
- In the event of a disqualification, all votes for the disqualified member are void. Members may not vote again. Disqualifed nominees may be nominated the following month (unless outright cheating is involved, which will usually result in a permanent ban.)

5) The Award Process (25th-end of month)
- Upon the closing of the AOM voting thread, CB7tuner Administration is to create a thread congratulating the current owner of the winning vehicle. This thread will be open for all members to comment.
- The Winner Thread is to contain a picture of the winning vehicle and the write-up submitted in the nomination thread.
- The current owner of the winning vehicle will receive a custom user title signifying his/her award of AOM.
- If there is only one valid nomination, then there will not be a voting stage. The sole nomination will be named AOM.
- If no vehicles are nominated for AOM, the second place contestant from the most recent voting poll will be awarded AOM. In following months, if nominations continue to be absent, or if the second place contestant from the most recent voting poll has already been awarded AOM in the past 12 months, the selection will move on to the next eligible second place contestant in subsequently prior voting polls.


Accord of the Year Voting

Only Accord of the Month Winners of that year are eligible for the corresponding Accord of the Year competition. Each AoM will receive one vote automatically for winning a previous AoM competition. If a ride has won twice in that year, they will receive two votes automatically.

The Voting will start New Years day, and end on January 15th at midnight. This gives ample time for the following January AoM competition.


Failure to follow these rules will result in the removal of the nominated car from the competition. No exceptions. The rules are posted. "I didn't know" is not an acceptable excuse! If something isn't clear, please ask a moderator. Any one of us would be glad to assist!

Furthermore, ANY tampering with the voting system will NOT be tolerated! If a nominee is found to receive votes from a number of brand new members, it will be assumed that someone is creating new identities to vote repeatedly. Such a matter WILL be investigated, and PERMANENT IP bans WILL be issued. This contest is meant to be fun, and we will not tolerate cheating! Keep it clean, please!

Thanks to Joe and for the AoM format! This format has been used and modified with permission.

    May & June 2015 AoM Nominations

    May & June 2015 AoM Nominations

    As the Accord of the Year for 2014, jdm_inspired, is not eligible for AoM nomination in 2015. Previous 2014 AoM Winners are ineligible as well. The other AoM winners from 2013 and beyond ARE allowed to be nominated. However, as they have already won the competition once, it is not recommended that they are nominated again. Let's get some new CBs recognized!

    Check out the Rules & Regulations - invalid nominations WILL be deleted!
    Please observe the format for nomination displayed here.

    Members must have 50 posts in order to nominate someone.
    Duplicate nominations will be deleted.
    Posts made that are not nominations will be deleted.
    Invalid nominations will be deleted.

    There is no need to second a nomination! If a nomination is valid, it will proceed to the voting stage automatically.

    Please only post ONE picture with your nomination. More pictures can be seen in the Member's Rides thread you link to!

    When nominating, please leave out any FUTURE PLANS sections. If it is not on the car, it should not be considered in the decision.

    Due to complications in my personal life, both months will be combined for this cycle. The two nominations with the most votes will be named for May and June respectively.

    Nominations will be Accepted until the 16th, Voting starts the 17th, so be Timely in your Submissions.
