Thumbs up I Wanna T-shirt

OK
I have been a member now for a short while and learned so much.
Thank-you to all the people who have helped in the learning process.
It is time I made another donation to funding and I will do so later.

Here is the thing; we seem to have lots of members but I have never seen any indication of our status as financial contributors.

I would be prepared to contribute more if I got a little something in return, therefore the subject heading, what are people's thoughts on the subject.
i'm posting in speakers but if moderators think it needs to be moved then please do so.

regards from a novice getting better quickly thanx to every-ones help
Ted

Excellent. Funding is always appreciated.

There is a list somewhere but it is outdated and I don't remember where it is.

Uh-oh, someone's letting their altruism slip.

i would like a DIYaudio T-shirt. I think a surcharge to help support the site is reasonable.

a T-shirt or any other popular item might also entice more people to donate.

My thought was a T-shirt with DIY Audio DOT com, priced in US dollars at a reasonable premium, I'd go 15 USD for the Tee with a premium of 10 dollars for the logo.

Self interest and altruism combined ""Best of both worlds""

Donation follows regardless ( Combined as my partner is also registered as the female influence cannot be ignored SHMBO must be listened to if not obeyed slavishly )

regards

Ted and Cecile

Ladies and Gents, if I may...

This wonderful place here has the pleasure of being a worldwide forum. It has a huge membership base and some of the great minds in the industry contributing their time and knowledge. One of the biggest and best of it's kind in the world.

It is also run by volunteers. We spend what time we can and hope it continues to be everything people want when asking for help, offering assistance or just showing off something they've built. It's been good for me from all three sides of that coin.

IMHO, to take it to the next level would mean a concerted effort to get something like T-shirts off the ground. Not trying to be a bummer here but think about it. Extra funds needed to get things underway means having a donation pledge. This place isn't about the money, we only have begathons when things are getting desperate. It takes a certain amount of money to run the place and so far the owner's input along with member pledges have kept our heads above water.

I think if something like that ever happens, it might be that we find someone we could put on payroll. Someone to look after the business side of things, you know, a real go-getter, a sales tiger to really get things going, sending t-shirts worldwide! Actually, t-shirts bedamned - we're going for a full line of clothing! Ya diyAudio!

Nope, not gonna happen. This place is about people with a common interest(s) hanging out, arguing, sharing stories and tech info.

Mind you T-shirts are a cool idea. Who wants to design it?

I like this T-shirt idea. For the design, why don't we open a "T-shirt design competition" here also? The best design will be used for this T-shirt. For something more durable, maybe not a bare T-shirt, but a collar one.

All things considered, I think the Mods do a great job keeping this forum up -- I am sure it must take a tremendous amount of effort. (I am in awe of the work that must have gone into making a clean pumpkin preamp thread with no OT posts , and the work that must go into keeping unfriendly members in line.)

For that amount of effort alone, plus all the free advice (and most of it is even good advice!) is more than enough to deserve a donation. (IMHO)

T-shirts might be nice, but I certainly wouldn't expect anyone here to take that on unless they volunteered to do it.

Thanks Mods,
JJ

Ok then can I have permission to use our existing logo and print a few of my own??

Just to show how proud I am to belong to such a knowledgable and generous bunch of intelligent and articulate people ( Blatent sucking up and grovelling )

T-shirts aside, I just like belonging to this on-line community.

Cal every-one knows how hard you guys work, don't think nobody appreciates it , I think we all do but I only speak for myself.


Tee-shirts good idea but too difficult to implement,
NO PROBLEM so long as experts continue to listen and give help on all of my dumd questions.
Regards
Ted

This site makes t-shirt selling pretty easy in case it suits:

http://www.cafepress.com/

along with hats and all other kinds of apparel. Basically, you upload your artwork and then choose which items you want to be for sale. You (the seller) can choose whether to make any money on a shirt - or not.
No charge to the seller. CafePress makes a little money on each sale.

Here's the site I set up a few years ago: www.cafepress.com/roam

Bob
