Forum Giveaways
« on: March 24, 2016, 04:05:07 pm »
I used to run some pro audio forums, and we gave away $30K worth of gear to members between 2002-2012.

Manufacturers are quite open to it, as it build good relationships.

If TPF is up for it, I could even arrange the first set of prizes.

TOF could do drawings and/or  song/remix contests.

We say ye, people?

Sounds like an interesting idea, how would people enter? We'd want to let the more active people in the community in on these contests so that inactive people don't crawl out of the woodwork just for some free gear

Hi 9,

Here's what I did for 10 years. I didn't like the idea of people jumping through hoops. So, we just posted that people had to have 25+ posts during the month in the forums to qualify.

But, that was a different time.

These forums aren't here to raise hustle. They're here as a tool for people to make music.

I love that. I'm a purist.

I rez with the spirit that Mat started this community.

A few truths:

There are talented people out there.

Some of them would greatly have their creative endeavours enhanced by some gear.

It's not fair to say that the "world needs more talent" if we're not providing a way for the "talent" to have a few inspiring creative tools.

I could put $10K right now of gear into this community. To foster and excite creative people.

That's what I'm here for.

Let's keep talking.
