So, on our homepage we have a slider that we dedicate to a cool ride owned by one of our readers. We try to change it every week. I figured this could be the beginning of a fun game.

I'll post who our featured reader is here every week. If anyone wants to cast a write-in ballot, feel free to leave it in this thread.

And our first week's winner is Ben_Modified with his crazy 400-horsepower kei truck..

In reply to Jerry:

It's in the series of pictures that auto-scroll near the top of the page.

It should be slider number 5.

I like the idea of readers rides, but I just want the juicy bit quickly - pics and stats. Then have a link to the build section.

This is a good example of why carousels suck. Whatever is in slot 5 may as well not even exist. It's either worth putting on the home page or it's not. (I think it is.)

Agreed. I can move it up in the order if that settles any angst.

I'm just glad we only display five slots. Cough...mlb.com...Cough...

Okay, back to it. The reader's ride of the week slider is the 5th slider image on the home page.
