raffle or auction

i am pretty new here but have been members of various other online boards, few with this many members though, anyway in the past a couple that i belonged to put on raffles or auctions to either raise money for the board or just give stuff to members. i was thinking if anyone would be interested in doing something like putting up a set amount maybe 10 or 20 bucks to a paypal account and we could do something like but a supercharger or something and raffle it off. it has been pretty fun in the past and a great way to get mods you may not be able to afford

First off.....if it involves money & this forum, you should ask persmission from the owner/operator TcBob.

Secondly.... sending money/paypal to an otherwise 'unknown' source is ridiculous. The only person I'd send 'donations' to would be a TacomaWorld account and/or TcBob directly. And again, asking TcBob to volunteer his (already busy) time to help you with this.

Your idea is neat - however - the logistics haven't been planned out and/or you haven't thought about who or how this money will be handled, who or how the raffle will take place, who or how the items will be purchased, who or how the items will be shipped.

It's a lot of work do to something like that.....think about it.

If Bob were to give his OK, I'd volunteer to use my PayPal account to hold the money. I probably wouldn't administer the raffle, but I think that I'm a trusted-enough member to handle the cash.

Again... only w/ Bob's OK. I think something like this has been shot down in the past.

For the OP,

Keep your eye on the forum near Christmas time. Last year we had a HUGE secret santa thing going on and that worked out pretty good.

I enjoyed it and I'd definately do it again. I'd even volunteer to organize it this year if someone wants or needs someone to do it (and I'm serious).

Ok....would anyone be interested in a "Christmas in July" Secret Santa??

Yeah... saw that... and not comparing myself to tcBob... but I feel that I'm established enough to be trusted, if Bob doesn't want to deal w/ it. That's all I'm sayin'.

Every time I see your signature I think of a tiger stalking prey... kind of inching up from behind bushes.

Back on topic...

I'm just saying that I'd volunteer to take care of tracking money in a PayPal account... who has given what amount of money, etc. I'm an accountant and deal with money all the time.

Seriously, if my offer isnt' welcome or needed, that's fine.

That's true about me, every mod, and tcBob, too... and that's why this idea will probably never get off the ground. Except for a few, the vast majority of site users don't know each other. There's simply not enough trust in strangers to allow one to hold the money for many. Mod or not, honest person or not, nothing is going to change the fact that only a couple of people on this site have had personal, face-to-face interaction with anybody else on the site.

Fun idea in theory... but it won't happen.
