So I am getting close to the 3 year mark and also the 3000 post mark right now. I would like to do something to celebrate 3 years on an amazing forum and a nice post number to go along with it. My idea so far...

1. Giveaway type thing where I pick one of my lasers and set up a giveaway. I do not know how I should have people entered though.

Just wondering if anyone has any ideas. I do not mean for this post to come over as egotistical. I dont think that highly of myself, but I want to do something fun for my 3rd LPF Birthday.

Thanks,
Isaac

this is in the poll area without a poll......tsk tsk :na:

you also only have one option so not sure how well that vote will go :crackup:

Anyways, in all seriousness, i suggest just a straight up giveaway. thats what im doing for mt 2500 post (well guess i gave the timing of that away but oh well). Im not asking members for money and its going to be done all on my dime; prize and shipping of BOTH giveaway item :D

BTW it doesnt have to be an expensive item since its the thought that counts but may i suggest the 520nm, 473nm or MS-SSW. those arent too expensive and would be a nice prize for me, oh i mean the winner of the giveaway :p :D :D :D :p :D :D

Lol aren't too expensive. Hahaha you are funny :p The 520 wasn't as bad as the others though. And yes, I know I didn't put up a poll but it seemed like the best section to ask in.

well if i couldnt get a laugh out of you then the joke was a bust. the grand prize for my giveaway is in the $30-40 range depending on which i pick. the second place prize is in the $15-20 range. my giveaway is US only with the option of international winner as long as they are ok with helping on the shipping cost.

if you could do something like that then i think the community would appreciate it. prize doesnt have to be anything special. good luck and let me know what you end up doing!

Oh I chuckled, maybe my amusement didnt translate to my reply. Hate the interwebs sometimes :p

I kind of want to do a contest or something.

A random number drawing would be interesting, too. Lots of possibilities, but it's all up to how you want to do it :beer: speaking for the community as a whole (if I may), thanks so much for the generous ideas!

How about a item for auction then donate the money to LPF. A win for all.

or a requirement to be entered is to donate $1 into the forum as entry, $2 is 2 entry, and up to $10 for 10 entries, you may end up getting $500 donated to the forum and using the who donated list as a way to pick the winner ?

yes ? no?

it can go on for a week or so and once it closes you use a random number gen to find the winner
