rig of the week thread?

I'm relatively new to the site, so sorry if this has already been discussed or if I've totally missed it, but what about starting a "Rig of the Week" thread? Another forum (ih8mud.com) I spend time on has such a thread, and it seems like a good way for members (especially new ones) to introduce themselves to the board. The idea is simple: sign up for a week in advance, then post pictures and a detailed description of your rig, any modifications, and what type of wheeling you're into. Members can then post feedback, ask questions, etc.

Any interest in doing this? Or does it already exist?

Charles, I nominate you to start, given that I haven't gotten my rover yet!

I dont think that has been suggested in the past. I can create a "post your rig" thread or something, which amazingly, we dont already have.

Yeah I get what he's saying. Its like a featured bio of the week. Thinking back about it now, I'm pretty sure there is an easy add-in for that. Let me look for it.

Sounds cool.

Make it like an "employee of the week!" and just email users in advance and mark them down with a specific week that they are willing to show their rig

Better yet, schedule a visit by the D90 source bikini team for the photo shoot 2 weeks prior.

Glad there's some interest.

Chris, maybe you can ask for volunteers and start making a schedule?

If I recall, it would be all automated to pull from the Owners Bios at whatever time cycle I specify.

Scott, if you dont mind, hold off on sending in the info. I'm about to apply a major and long over due upgrade to the site to bring it up to current versions and then once fix the broken bits, I will start taking bio updates and etc.

No problem. Charles set up a mirror dev site for me to test the upgrade on so once its done, I'll make an announcement for people to start sending in updates.
