Since we have many artists and crafty people in our community, I could offer a $10.00 gift card to Michael's as one of the prizes. I'm sure it would be put to good use! :wink:

I totally want a Fearless Leader (tm) t-shirt now...

How do people feel about having contest prizes mailed directly to them from the donator?

Pros:
It cuts out the expense of mailing twice. (Since the expense of mailing from me would... pretty much fall on me, this is probably most important TO me. :P)
It could mean getting prizes faster, though I probably would collect prizes in advance of the contests in the future, so there wouldn't NEED to be a lag.

Cons:
It would mean that a prize donator gets access to the contributor's mailing address, and visa versa. Some people may feel strongly about this, discouraging them from donating or participating
Flaky donators = late or no prize. (Donators would not get their karma until the prize was received.)

Should we allow prize-winners/donators to opt to have their prizes shipped through me, but otherwise do it directly? This is something I hadn't considered yet, though I need to asap!

Also bear in mind that several of us are not in the United States. I haven't heard of Micheal's, do they have an online presence and could such a voucher be used over the internet?

Tangible prizes are nice of course, but I was also thinking, you know how, on EMG forums, artists get little palettes and paintbrushes next to their names. How about prize winners getting a little trophy icon or ribbon next to their name?

I'm always willing to supply a portrait of their character. Will be online only (Unless Ellen can print and send) but exclusive use to them? :)

Oo! I quite like the idea of forum trophies - we can definitely do that.

I'm also thinking that rather than specific prizes, we can have a loot pool - winners can pick 1 or 2 items (depending on the contest) from a list of donated prizes/loot. That way, someone doesn't have to worry about winning something they can't use, or already have one of. I think they will be tiered - something of a value to $5 would be tier 3, a value to $10 would be tier 2, anything higher would be tier 1. Donators would get karma based on what tier their donation was, and the various contests would have variable prizes based on their complexity.

The prize for the fauna contest, for example, will be a piece of tier 1 loot from the pool and $5 torn world credits!

(Possibly, we could even allow folks to turn in a sufficient quantity of karma for items from the loot pool? I have to think about that one some more...)

Okay, I'm going to go forward with the contest pool idea. I'm also going to experiment with the idea of letting people ship them directly and see how it works out. If that has hiccups, I'll have prizes shipped to me first.

If you would like to donate a prize, please post to this thread. Let me know the following:

~Where you are willing to ship. If you want to limit your cost of shipping to US addresses, please state so!
~The value or tier of your prize.
~Any other limitations to the prize.

If you would like to donate a custom portrait, for example, state the medium/complexity you're willing to, any subjects you'd prefer to draw or not to draw (ie no nudity or female subjects only), what kind of final product the winner might receive (just a digital image? Or a print?) and how much this would be worth if you were charging for it. If you feel more comfortable, you may simply state which tier you consider that your prize falls into:

Less than $5: Tier 3
$5-$10: Tier 2
More than $10: Tier 1

You will receive karma for your donation!

Tier 3: 5 points
Tier 2: 10 points
Tier 1: 15 points

This karma is received when the prize is received and confirmed by the recipient.

Should we discuss a karma penalty if a prize is promised and never delivered? I am inclined to subtract an equal number of points....

I have posted the relevant information into the initial post of this thread.

(Oh, and Nicole, I still think a $10 Michael's card is an awesome idea - we have plenty of US residents who would love that!)

I could possibly offer pottery? Make something custom would be slow, but maybe a specific piece that's thematically appropriate would work.
