BUCKSCOOP TURNS THREE OCTOBER 2009 ... Give us your ideas

22 September 2009

Can't believe that another year has flown by. Next month Buckscoop turns 3 and we are going to open the doors for games and celebrations.

We have a few ideas about how to get the festivities on the go but we are also open to suggestions.
So if there are any members out there that have a game or idea to help us celebrate our Birthday pop a comment below and we shall see what we can do :-)

The fun will start on 1st October and run for the whole month.

    how about a scoopathon ala catch of the day, but everything is only $3? Wouldn't need to be big things, could be fun though, plus if you restrict it to members, could get a lot of people signing up!

    mmmm scanticlad women are sure to get a certain % of the membership interested I like the scoopathon ... however, I am not sure what we would make $3 as we don't sell anything :)

    hmmm, how much money do you want to spend lol. You could try and get gift vouchers for somewhere, if they would donate $10 or $5 gift vouchers from different shops and you could then sell those, the money could always go to charity or admin expenses then or buckscoop merchandise teaspoons, tshirts, hats etc lol, could have a lot of fun with it or sell photos of scantily clad women hehehe

    Our regular game of Bingo is always fun - maybe with a three theme. Or a scavenger hunt looking for specific items or words (or I guess a picture) with the number or word '3' or 'three'. Anyway whatever you come up with will I'm sure be as fun as always. 'Happy Birthday' in advance!

    I have ALWAYS wanted to drive around in a car with signs on it....Random I know but stay with me - So why don't we get magnets made up for our cars from VISTA PRINT and get BUCKSCOOP stickers made up too and then people can put them onto their cars and people would want to find out more... You could also give out prizes to people who have the sticker on their car.....I don't know where the the prizes would come from but it would be great advertising. HAHA! Ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh :) Then once we have lured them here we can have 3 games of bingo Well I don't know if you have missed me or not but forgot my password and all my logins!!! but I am back now and ready to slap on BUCKSCOOP magnets on my car :D

    You could do the 3 hottest deal posts each week for October win a prize, would get everybody posting & involved!? :) Maybe everyone will get a bit too competitive and vote cold on everyone elses though! :p

    Easily fixed. Just make it clear you can't cold vote and if you don't like the deal just don't vote at all.

    Yeah, put it in the rules that you can't. I'm actually scared of voting cold! I don't think I've done it yet.

    OOH my son turns three in October too
  • melscott28
    What about a trivia/quiz on Buckscoop Merchants like what financial merchant offers $75 cashback. First one to answer get a point.
  • winniblu
    Then we would need to think HAHA!
  • nod
    The 3 deals is a good idea. When we have run that sort of comp in the past it has always been that cold voting was not allowed - or you could do it but you needed to post a comment as to why

    In the UK on your sister site, they had a competition where everyone designed a greeting card and the winner got a voucher from amazon for about $20. How about something similar?
  • lilpretzel
    Sister site??? What site is that brehaut :confused:
  • melscott28
    What about putting up a Buckscoop.com.au sign some where. Take a pic and the weirdest place one wins.

What do you think?
