Well, this thing has a 6-gear, but I wouldn't call it a RC10. :D

Hey guys. Sorry for the delay in getting the BOTM stuff going on time. I got Covid again, so I've just been resting the last few days. Thankfully it doesn't seem to be as bad as the first time.... so far.

It's probably going to delay the SC10 drawing a little bit, too. Just hang tight and give me a little time to get over this.

That sucks! I got Covid this past summer, and it was the worst. I was really sick for at least 2 weeks or possibly closer to 3. I've tried blocking it out of memory.


As it pertains to the BOTM, I've been working on figuring out the corresponding BOTY trophy icon.

I have some potentially bad news concerning the BOTM and BOTY profile icons. Using graphics I upload for them isn't going to work. I spent many hours trying to figure out a way to do it, and initially thought I reached a solution. The problem is I never tested the BOTM and BOTY graphics together at the same time. When doing so, it causes the whole thing to mess up. :?

With that being the case, the only other option is plan B which is using 'Font Awesome' icons. I've tested it out, and it will achieve what we're trying to accomplish. It's just not nearly as nice looking as the original plan.

Now the question I have is what icons to use? The choices are a trophy, checkered flag, star, and seal. We have to pick two of the four, and which one to use for BOTM, and BOTY respectively.

Here they are in a line for visual representation. The white numbers represent the times a person has won.

I vote the trophy to represent BOTM wins, and the seal for BOTY wins.

My initial thought was the opposite. :lol: But I can get behind that, it really don't make no nevermind no-how.
Hope you're doin' something fun.

I'm with TRX-1-3, I like the Seal (or Star) for the BOTM and the Trophy for BOTY.

Trophies are for the big winners... because you never hear about anyone having a seal-winning car... or a seal-wife...

My pick was the trophy for BOTY, and star for BOTM as well but wanted to see what you guys thought. :) There were some other icons that may have been good like a crown for example but for some reason they won't display. So our choices are a bit limited.

Alright, the BOTM and BOTY award icons have been set up! They also display in your profile now as well. 8)

If I missed any of your wins, let me know.
