PostSubject: A good deed from a gracious winner......   Fri Dec 30, 2011 10:43 pm

Well, as you all know, the Blue Room photo contest for December is over. And my pic came in second place to an amazing photo by blueroom member lostsoul4438. When we all saw his pic, we knew it was going to be, at best, tough to beat him. With your support, we ran a close race and I wish to thank you all. We lost 22-29 with third place getting only 3 total votes.

The prize offered by the blueroom for the photo contest is a lifetime membership to the fjcruiserforums.com site. As it turns out, lostsoul4438 already has a lifetime membership and when presented with the award, he graciously passed it on to me with this comment on the forum:

- "I got to give it up to PA-NC's photo, though. I love his picture and I think the vote could have gone either way."

I was also greeted this afternoon with the following PM from a blueroom admin:

- "Heads up, lostsoul4438 won this month's ride of the month but already has a lifetime membership. He asked that the prize be transferred to you. Enjoy the lifetime membership status!"

I replied with a thank you post and a PM directly to lostsoul4438. I wanted to mention this because a good deed should not go unnoticed. I truly appreciate that kind of generosity.

cheers

awesome gesture , really a great thing to do...but it begs to wonder if the "prize" is a lifetime membership why would someone with a lifrtime membership enter thcontest...maybe there was just some confusion on the blue rooms rules..no biggie

but again David, congrats and that really was a wonderful gesture...and im jealous....LOl...

I thought I would share the awesome response that lostsoul4438 posted in response to my thank you PM:

"No worries, man. It was a fun one, for sure. In the back of my mind, I hoped that your NCFJ peeps would pull together and rally, but the holidays played a role. Your picture is great and reminds me of the year and a half that I spend on the road with the FJ...miss those days. I like the way the road shoots off in the distance, like a ramp.

I like the group support and hated that GA was never able to get something going. I was lucky and ran across many groups while on the road. I hope to ride with you guys at some point. I am excited to know that you guys are up there and running strong. (I dig the NCFJ page, by the way)

I should be back for a quick R&R in May, so maybe I'll ping you guys before rolling in country to see about a quick trail ride in your neck of the woods."

Good deal. Its good to know the admins will let you do that. I have a membership, but I still like to participate in the contests. This way I don't have to feel like forfeiting a prize. (should I ever win)

That is a great thing to hear. Congratulations David! Oh, and what's up with all you guys having sick animated FJ avatars all of a sudden? They look great!

That is just how we electronically roll!

There is a thread in the blue room where the OP is creating these. He has also been kind enough to do some more custom avatars for those with more mods.
