Lube? (Industrial sized bottles of Astroglide)
I'll keep thinking but chew on that for a while.

On another board, the OWNER of the site might buy a gun or two. Then he asks people to make donations (usually companies donate, not private individuals). But the donations are worth anywhere from $10 to $10,000. In exchange for the donations, the people/companies get free advertisements on the site.
What might be beneficial here is to have a "test" raffle, if that is what you are suggesting. That way you get a feel for how many chances you'll sell. Then for the next raffle, you can buy something a bit more expensive and then the money from the chances will support the buy as well as the site.
For a good grand prize, maybe have a drawing for a Sybian, Electrode type machine, or even a gift certificate of a decent amount to a GOOD sex toy site.
I'll keep thinkin;)

Sex toy companies i could see. not sure about the firearm thing though. on a gun forum. it would probably go over real well but on a sex forum I am not sure the guns thing would go over well.
I would honestly like to see a sex toy company join the forum and maybe even give the members a discount or incentive for a group purchase/ heads up on new toys kind of thing.
The money would have to go to mike. He is the one who is eating the cost of the bandwidth at this time. I will think on the raffle idea. I am not sure what kind of responce we would have over it. Good idea, we just may have to refine it a little bit.
I'll keep thinkin
links to said sex toy sites would be helpfull. only one i have ever found was adamandeve.com to be of any help.
thanks for the idea's. please keep them comeing and if anyone else can chime in here and give me some idea's please do.
how many would wear a shirt with the sexforums logo?

As for the other companies, there are TONS of sex toy shops online. I'm heading out now, but I'll try to list the major ones later on. If I forget, just remind me.
Not sure about the t-shirt thing. It'd be cool to have one, but I definitly couldn't wear it to work or school. Still would like one though.

as far as the DVD goes, you would have to live with what i bought. I am on a budget.
thanks for the help, and please keep the idea's coming. i need your help to help the forums.

As far as people participating, again, maybe try running a "test raffle". It'd be for real, but not offer anything HUGE so there wouldn't really be any risk on the raffle-runner's part.
I think the DVD's and games would be a great idea. In fact I jsut saw that Playboy came out with a video game for Play station or X-box. Don't have either system, but it'd be an appropriate game. SF gear is cool too.
Something else you might do is ask for donations in all the forums or else on the main page. You'd be suprised what people have NEVER opened and won't use or what they would be willing to chip in. No thank you's do not hurt and it might open up some doors for you.
Just trying to help.

Already have this planned. Our first contest should hopefully be launched this month
i can have a few shirts printed up to give away, but do not know how you would feel about that as the forum is yours.
This was another idea. I will look into how this can work with SF$ when I get back in town and can sit down and think something up.
SF$, have you read the thread about sf$, would you be against takeing away the right of new members to have an avatar and sig untill they could purchase one with SF$. i do not know the cost yet, but i am sure the mods could come up with some cost factor if we know how much each post was worth in each forum.
Great idea, I see this a lot on other forums so we can develop a simular concept
is there a sex toy company that we could contact to join the forum and maybe have an input or discount to the members? that would be a cool feature, join the forum and get 10% off your next order or something?
Yes. I have plans to set up a members discount page with links to Sex Toy Stores and other companies and websites that would like to work out deals with us an our members.
just some idea's members have brought to my attention and i thought were good.
let me know what you think.
Feel free to post this for anyone concerned. I promise to have some big changes and upgrades by the end of the month, maybe even a whole new layout / design.

Please let us know what you want!
It will only lead to a better forum, with more members and more fun.
If mike is willing to bust his Butt to give us a forum, we need to let him know the forum that we want. PLEASE give us more of an idea of what YOU would like to take place here!
THIS IS IMPORTANT, BE A PART OF THIS!
