Actually I kind of assumed each persons donations would be a prize so there would be more than one.
I wonder if changing the title of the thread may help, too many people may read the title and ignore it. Maybe someting more like: "Several lasers to be donated to help the forum with donations" maybe more people will view the thread, but then again they might not.Well right now this doesn't seem to be getting much notice. I'm not sure how many people actually realize whats happening.
There should be a few things decided first like $ amount per entry, when does it start and end, what will be given away, who pays for shipping, who is allowed to enter, are you going to require positive rep and 20 posts or some such thing? All the details should be decided before it starts.Is there a link as yet where one can buy a ticket?
I think in this case, people might hold off until there is a prize and no donations in between. Monthly concept will at least have constant flow of donations.Just a thought.
If we did a monthly thing it could look wrong and it might miss a lot of less frequent visitors.
But if we let the prize lot build over several months then it's a special deal and wont look wrong, plus it will draw much more participation over time as everyone catches wind of it, and the bigger prize lot will be much more attractive.
