If we launched a $100 contest

Discussion in 'Updates And Feedback' started by cpvr, Mar 23, 2011.

  1. If we launched a $100 contest - what should we have? A referral contest - you'd have to refer the most active people - that create topics and also engage in current posts.

    Or a posting contests - where the user who makes the most quality blog posts, and threads - would win $100, but then again, we could have 3 prizes that'll equal $100.

    This is coming soon. I just need to set up my paypal account, and then its on... I will also buy some banners from the artists here as well - that way we can have more supporting banners


    So, what do you guys think? Let's discuss because I know our potential here at VPL! I know our members are very creative and can spread the word about us - real because look at us now we're averaging 100 to 120 daily log ins already.

    We've only been back for 2 months and 2 days now - and we feel we owe it to our wonderful community members - you guys wanted us back!!!

    :cool:
     
    Your banner/button can be located here for an entire month or year, please see our advertising on virtualpetlist thread for more information.

  2. Has it really been only a tad over two months?

    This is astonishing progress; great work VPL.

    $100 really would make quite a contest. The response to it should be interesting.

  3. Eep, I'd say posting contest, because refferal contests NEVER work out, at least for me.
     
  4. I think it'd be difficult. Referral contest sounds like a bad idea that'd end up in VPL full of sock puppet accounts, and then who'd be the judge of "quality" comments/posts?

    I see the latter being a good way for people to get more involved in the community, at least. Referral just sounds like a bad idea.

    Is this going to be a monthly thing or something? :> That'd be cool.
     
  5. Well it all depends on our funds - and what we can come up with - or if we get support from others to help us out on contests. :) Pet sites can run contests here, same with our members. It's not just us that can run them here. :)
     
  6. I say no for referrals. I like the posting idea^^
    100 bucks, I could use that xD
     
  7. Wow I say posting is fine as longg as the exact way of judging is explained. (how much is creating a topic worth compared to posting on the playhouse)
     
  8. I have a new idea - what if we used the $100 to launch a custom skin contest for us - of course, we'd have to find more funds to get a vBulletin skinner to do it - but I'm sure I can work some type of magic with a designer. :p

    What do you guys think?
     
  9. May I ask what you mean by 'custom skin contest'?
     
  10. Well, we'd run a contest - the artists involved will have to create the best creative, and best looking skin for us to use on VPL - for branding purposes, right? I think so, we have a unique logo, and mascot - so why not come up with a custom skin that has both of these included?

    I'm not sure, but I think its a pretty good idea if I do say so myself - why? Gives the artist a great way to get some free promotion - and plus, it could be interesting to see what everyone could come up with, right?
     
  11. I like the layout idea a lot. Creating "quality" posts could kinda lead to spamming in a way, I think.
     
  12. I think its a rather restrictive contest, but its your money.
