Sounds good on the surface, but who would be in charge and how will we police the raffle to ensure it's not rigged? Not saying it would be, but I was part of a raffle on another forum and because it was handled by mods and close members of the mods when another mod won all hell broke loose.
Please read this idea guys I think it's a good one:
The site could just work with a classifieds add. Look at it like this, lets say someone is selling a piraya, for $200. The site says, "look we will put up the topic, members will have the option to pay a $1 per ticket, or 5 for $4, and 75% will go to you for the fish, and 25% will go to us." The site would be able to pull off a raffle a week, shoot, dang near a raffle a day..."The Daily P-fury Raffle" can you see it now. "I got nothing to do today, shoot whats going up for raffle, yeah I'll pitch in a buck" I could see this working, the 75/25 or 50/50 would be a behind the scenes thing with Mods and the member selling, but I think this site could generate more revenue with an idea like this. If something like this was big enough the raffle ticket could probably include shipping, so if you win the raffle, you just pick up your fish, this kind of incentive would have people buying tickets.
