Idea proposal for Monday 2-16-09. A forum "Free item Day"
Posted by: pRICE cUBE
Date: February 11, 2009 03:20PM
I have been the recipient of some nice items on this forum. I would like to give away some items I have laying around for spring cleaning. Anyone willing to participate, I will be posting a thread on 2-16, this Monday for free items you want to give away. Just let people know what it is and agree on who pays shipping.

I'm in.

I am sure I can come up with something interesting/semi-useful...

Great idea but the cost of shipping from here might put some of you off. Good luck with it.

The powers that be could do that if they wanted too. Very good idea.

I don't see any problem with that.

Just send a PM to Rhonda or I when the thread is up and one of us will sticky it.

We've had the "Pay it Forward" threads on some Car Forums I participate in.
First to respond gets it (shipping due on bigger items) but the deal is, they now have to post something up in order to keep the process going.

I say skip any expectation of reciprocation. Just make it about "stuff should get used."

I've got enough to pass along for my own thread.

I would say keep it as simple as possible. Along the lines of I have X,Y,Z, PM me if you want it, would be my suggestion. All the shipping details should be worked out via PMs.

Remember, everything should be free, except for actual shipping. We cannot have anything being bought or sold on the Forum, but giving away should be OK.

How about a "best free item" and "worst free item" award? It might be fun and will encourage some really good stuff to come out discourage some really bad stuff from coming out! Maybe a "I can't believe someone took that?!" award too.

Maybe people with bigger, impractical to ship stuff can include their zip code. I might have some stuff good stuff but I know it won't be worth it to ship but I know there are a lot of people near me. I also get kinda lazy about shipping stuff correctly.

I wish somebody was already doing this, sending cool stuff to folks, not even charging for shipping, swearing them to secrecy.
Just a thought, but that would be cool.
