I was thinking it would be cool if HoF did another contest for the summer to try to get more members.If we could get FU or Nrev to help us advertise, then I think it could be a big hit. Or we could partner up with Taerkitty or something, since he did the crappies contest. I just don't really know what it should be about. The external mod contest did horribly, FU just had a mod contest, and Nrev tried to do a homemade contest. I was leaning toward homemade, just because we're kind of in a homemade arms race with all the new blasters, and the bullpup craze. So, what do you guys think?

(This was coppied from the exact post I sent to Zero.)

I'd love to have a contest here. Maybe a tech development contest, not necessarily homemades or production mods. I've got a few ideas that I haven't done anything with that I think could be good places to start. Maybe like: tube mags, homemade flywheels, homemade clip systems, just have people build stuff that no one's tried before.

I don't know how much or be able to participate, July is non-existent for me because I'm going to rose-hulman in Indiana for the summer enginnering program.

I won't have much free time in July either, my family always rents a cottage at a lake near us. A development contest would be cool, but we would not have a lot of ways to judge it. A clip making contest would be  cool. I would love to see something better than the hopper, that is hardware-store-able. Any more ideas, people?

I think either August or September... Although, I will probably not enter due to the fact I would be blown out of the water.

Crank-powered homemades only! No ones built anything like it, and anything we produced would be the first of it's kind.

So, exotic homemade? I would have to build the prize in early August if we ended it in September, because I have no free time in September. Crank-powered homemade would be cool. Maybe a different pulpusion contest/priming method contest? An outside-the-box contest. I like it.

Well, Pedoonis on NH just announced a contest with pretty nice prizes, so I don't think ours would manage to snag much attention at this time.

*Sigh* KiDD and that stupid filter! XD

I thought maybe a originality contest, the more original and groundbreaking the higher the score...

Tell me if I'm wrong, but after seeing half of Cat's pics deleted (from what I see, tell me if I'm wrong) and him not posting every other day (like he usually does) I think means that he's gone.......

That is basically the trend of the members on our website. I think it's only me and you now, Zero. I like the originality contest. Creative, wacky stuff is always good. We could open it to everything (including darts). What does the silent majority think  (haha, I quoted Nixon).

As I prize, I could off a RBPistol with a 1/8in. ID plunger tube. I have lots of scrap left from my Tbow...

We'll need a second and third place prizes but in order to get members and entries we could change our tag things in our sigs from others sties from, "Come join our Home Of Foam," To, "Want a free RBPistol?  Join our contest now!"

Ya, that'd work Lein. I don't think I could offer too much of a second place prize, and we need some substantial entries for that. I would like at least 6 to hand out the RBPistol. Also, I have little internet access during July, so we need to get this contest set up before July.

If it's a "make the craziest thing to come out of your mind" contest, then I'm good to go, no matter when the date is, I'm almost done with my potential entry.
