Hey there

We can restart this if the community is still interested. How does everyone feel about this?

The problem seems to be that there was a lack of interest the last time this was held. It's not looking too much better at this time with only three responders here

We'll leave this open for the weekend, hopefully some more people are online and see this and chime in. If there is more of a push for it, we'll see that we at least try it again once.

Yeah, I remember the last let's get it started again thread. That time we talked about getting sponsors to pony up prizes or a TDS T-shirt. I don't really see this going very far again, but one can hope

I think if we can get the attention of all those new people jointing TDS that will be a really good start. Is there any possibility to have something on the main page that will attract attention? Maybe just over the "Most popular discussion". Something like "TDS RIG OF THE MONTH".....

From that thread we need to contact some sponsors and see if they are willing to give away some gift card.

Dayle, I know that when we start talking about money everything get more complicated but do you think that it will be possible to get a TDS T-shirt for the winner of each month? also if we get some sponsor on board with the gift card idea, is there any chance that TDS mach up the amount or half the amount..... Example 50$ gift card from X sponsors will TDS match the 50$ for a total of 100$? or half for a total of 75$ (we don't want to ruin TDS )

Even if it is just for fun it would still be fun. Just doing it for fun does not cost anything, so why not do it?

We can start with the supporter status for winners to get the ball rolling. To get stuff to give away can get complicated but first we should show that its got some interest again.
