    I was going to pick different colors to use as each contest winner ribbon that goes under your avatar. But the monthly ones are kept for a year. The smaller contest ribbons are kept for a month. Some won't care what color they are. Some would hate having certain colors under their name for a month to a year.

    So here is the deal. The winner gets to pick the ribbon color. Just use a HTML color chart like these...
    And post up the code in this thread. I will then make the color change for you.

    Rules
    • This is only for contest winners (user group ones like "Founding Members" will stay the same for the whole group.
    • It has to be different from the ones currently in use. So the Gold (#ffd700) is out. I will keep a list in this first post showing what is in use.
    Codes that are in use right now and can't be used are.

    • Founding members #ffd700
    There is a few contest ones in use right now but they can be picked. Once a winner picks a color they want then it will be added to the above list.

    This is a very generous offer, but to be honest I really like my colours, I wouldn't have picked them better myself. :)

    That build contest is really hard because I am not an expert, but fair enough it's a good prize. Even if it was a bake thread... I wouldn't win that one either. :)

    I build thread doesn't have to be just work you do. You can post about work you have done as well. With the new picture gallery feature I'm going to be adding this week, you will be able to post info and pics of your car. This gives you kinda gives you a virtual garage. One that is done it will create a thread for it. So if people post enough about their car over time it can get people interested in what is going on. If the thread takes off then it could be good for that member.

    There will be other contests as well. I will be add more as I come up with ideas for them. A referral contest wouldn't be hard to win at this point. The Top Thread will continue to go on. There could be surprises coming for that contest. Building new exciting threads is good as well as keeping the ones that you have won with going.

    I want to start a picture contest soon. That can get someone a banner and possible a prize as well.

    I just thought of another one. http://gearheadcentral.com/index.php?threads/top-event-monthly.4788/#.Ulv1CxArdbE

    I have another offer for members. For all of the minor contests we have, I will be adding all the winners of them to a special user group. That user group is for all monthly contest winners. You won't get another banner for it so how do you know you were entered into it? You will get a trophy. If you click on your avatar you will see trophy points on your member card. Click on that and you will see all of the ones you have.

    What is so special about this user group? At some point I will start having some contests that are just for people in that user group. That will be a small group so your chances of winning will be high. The prizes could be things like are long over due t shirts and so on.
