    Would all of you dealers be interested in running a raffle for Sherdog? Since you guys get free advertising on this site and Sherdog is really cool about letting you guys post here, lets try to get something together to give back!

    With the mod/admin's help, we could set up a raffle that could bring in a good influx of money to the 'Dog. I have seen this done on other boards that have 1/8th of the traffic as this one, and we raised quite a bit of money.

    Here is how it would work. An admin would set up an email address and link the paypal account to it. Dealers (and anyone else who wanted to donate goods or services) can put certain things up for raffle. There should be quite a few small things like keychains, beanies, t-shirts, etc...Sherdog could offer something like Plat membership for 3 months, cheap DVDs, etc... And have one or two good things, like a Gi, DVD, Gloves, etc...

    Now the Admins would make a new thread that shows what is up for grabs, the price of the raffle "tickets", instructions on how to buy the "tickets", and when the raffle ends. We did $1 tickets at the other board I was talking about, and had incentives if you bought a certain amount. Ie....buy 5 tickets, get 1 free, etc...

    It would take a little bit of work for the admins to organize it, and I am not sure how to go about running the actual raffle (I didn't handle that part), but I think it could raise quite a bit of money for Sherdog.

    What do you guys think?

    MODs/ADMINs: would you be willing to do something like this?

    Yeah, i was a platinum member until the day my 3 month ran out and someone posted Wanderlei will win the GP and I replied with a simple I agree and got a double yellow for posting a simple reply. Pretty fucked up, weird how it happened the day my Platinum was done and I didn't renew.

    I'd be willing to participate in this idea and donate some items for the raffle. I appreciate being able to advertise on this website for my small start-up company.

    This would be good in time for Christmas. Are you mods/admins willing to do something like this?

    Good idea. It could be ran much like the old prediction contest to win shopping credit for the SD store. The only problem may be that giving stuff away for free at a time when the forum has taken on sponsors to try keep the site going due to increased admin costs due to MMA's increasing popularity may not be the best idea. I guess it depends on how generous our sponsors choose to be.
