PART I--**///Official E46 2013 Calendar Voting Thread\\\**

Here is the moment we have all been waiting for!!

First and foremost BIG thanks to everyone who has participated to this point and took the effort to submit their photos. The total number of entries we received for this contest was 72! That is a great turnout and a large sample size. So much so that it would be unrealistic to make a poll with all 72 entrants and expect to see legitimate results.

We that being said, after much thought and collaboration with a few other non-forumites, we decided to pick a total of 24 cars that had a real shot at making the calendar. Our decisions were based off of certain criteria that we charted. With 24 choices and 12 slots available, every 2 cars will be fighting for one month.

Most importantly, if your car was not chosen to be in this poll it is not for any reason other than the fact that we felt certain members had a better chance of enhancing the overall quality of this calendar. Please do not take it personally and like I said before, if it were mathematically possible every single one of you would be included. I still hope that all 72 of you vote, spread the word and still end up purchasing this calendar regardless!


How voting works:
The poll is in multiple pick format where you will be required to choose your top 12 favorites, 1 vote for each month. This will keep the voting balanced and eliminate a shift of votes towards one particular pick. The photos are listed alphabetically per username and directly correspond to the poll. If there is a tie after the polls close, we will then have a run-off between the tied contestants.

I emphasize that YOU MUST MAKE EXACTLY 12 PICKS. No more, no less. Voting will be monitored on a daily basis to ensure we stick to the rules. Polls close at midnight on Sunday November 18th giving everyone ample time to vote.

Rule 1:
*Make exactly 12 picks*

Rule 2:
*If you’re chosen to be in this poll and cannot provide a high enough resolution image upon request, you will be replaced by someone else*

Rule 3:
*If 10 or more members collectively feel another members car should have been selected/added or removed from list of candidates, suggestions may be heard via*

Rule 4:
*If 10 or more members collectively feel a different photo of the same members car should be used instead of the one shown below, considerations will be taken*

Rule 5:
*If for any reason you feel you need to ABSOLUTELY make more than 12 picks i.e. 13, or accidentally made more/less than 12 picks, please PM or e-mail so we can take note/adjust immediately*

Below, I will be posting 1 photo from each candidate. Additionally, with a link to their original post to reference back to in case any of the aforementioned rules apply.

Have fun and let the voting begin!
