 This Site

I have been giving it a lot of thought lately, and this site would be much better if we did not rate and compare the car audio systems of our members. I realize that this may have initially seemed like a "cool" idea, but we can all agree that it has disrupted the harmony that once existed on this forum. Due to the immature acts of certain people (whom I will not name), we have even had some well respected members of this forum leave. Also, and I am still investigating this, there may have even been deceitful manipulation of the ranking system! Although I am still open to listening to your comments, I must say that my mind is pretty well made up on this issue.

The Online Car Audio Competition (OCAC) is the first and only online car audio competition in the world. It lets beginners, enthusiasts, installers and car audio professionals to compete 24/7 without the loss of personal time and travel expenses. Members can simply create an install gallery of their car audio system or installers can post galleries for each of their installs. Anyone posting an Install Gallery automatically competes passively. You can compete actively by challenging others to Head2Head challenges to earn more competition points. Best of all, unlike most traditional competitions, there is no annual membership fees or cost to the competitors, and you can shar your install with over 2 million visitors and have the chances to win trophies and prizes.
well your idea is rite in alot of ways, but the whole point of the site is to show off what you have and be able to rate others aswell as have yours rated as well

The online rankings and challanges take one crucial part of the "sound off" out of the mix . . . . . the sound.

 Good Points

I never really realized all of that before. I think you have even me convinced. It sounds like a good thing, maybe just needs a little tweaking.

 Here is an idea

Since we now want to keep the competition, but cut out all of the bickering and cheating among ourselves, what do you guys think about having independent judges involved? I was thinking that maybe we can get some of the folks from one of the other forums judge. What do you think about having the members of sounddomain or caraudio.com judge the installs???

We did lose alot of well respected members to stupid things in the competitions. About the individual judge idea, if you would have seen what members of caraudio.com did a couple days a ago you would scrap the idea.

Wow, I really can't believe I did not think of that before. What do you say guys? He is right isn't he?? In the end isn't that what car stereo should be all about? Sound? Now the competition seems down right silly. I mean doesn't the competition now necessarily just reward people for making the cars look ghetto? This has got to stop. This "competition" is making us all look like idiots.

Overall, it is a nice way to display an install you put many hours into. Unfortunately, from what I have seen lately, the guy who leaves his amp(s) sliding around in the trunk without even a half-assed attempt to hide any wires seems to score better than someone who took the time to clean up the install and put the components where they are best suited for that particular install. I bet if I tossed a FUBR off of an MA Audio "5000 Watt" amp, a couple of caps, and some ghetto neons in the back of my Tahoe, I could take top honors.

Well how do they do it at "real" competetions held in person? Do they actually turn on the stereos? Or do they just look at each others' stereos like we do here?

And I thought you were here to help everyone with this site, but no just here to talk crap. Not even good crap that was a comment from a 12 year old, you can do better:) I guess I got you mad over the Kickerkitty thing, but I really thought you were him. He could be a real ass sometimes, just like you:)

I was going to say that, but after his last comment the smart thing did not fit:)
