Ok first design anybody? It'only basic (paint, powerpoint)




An embroidered badge could go on almost anything (glued iron on nowadays) caps, jackets, jeans, t shirts.
If we agree on a design, I don't mind finding out how much for embroidered patches and vinyls etc! Done this before with my Wink MA club! Wink Wink

its a cool idea, but like has been said before it could discourage people from signing up for not wanting to be isolated, maybe leave it a few months and see how the forum goes then do it! just my 2 cents Very Happy

sorry, where does the "Dirty Dozen" link come from, and wouldn't that only allow 12 people ?

i think Bad Idea if you group people. just give people a step up once they've been here for a specific amount of time/posts.

else you'll alienate people pretty quickly.

The only other suggestion I can think of is some kind of status for those who have donated to keep the club/forum running, to pay for things like stickers/badges etc.

I am not sure if this is any better or worse than rewarding post counts though, given some may have more spare cash than others, however at least it would be something which people could get in on right after joining so they don't feel alienated.

Your 2 pennies are worth diamonds to me ollieworks! If anything is decided it will take some time to implement from my side!

Possibly yes! Rec what can I say!? 'the dirty dozen was just an idea if we were to go for a limited amount of people! It could just as well be the 'Dirty Thirty' or 'Gritty Sixty'!!

Great idea then we get some funding for all sorts of things including the badges! Then add another badge up for grabs every anniversary or something!

It's only ideas at the mo so keep them coming! Would be nice to have a logo'd embroideried badge for me cap though! mmmmm! Laughing

i hate the whole "original circle of people" mentality. as wicz says, if you're new to the fold you're never ever ever going to get into that original group, and feel like you're always going to be classed as a newcomer.

scrap all ideas to elevate certain members over others. keep mods and members and call it the end. dont provide excuses for people to look down on other people.

i suppose i should vote Razz

nothign wrong with t shirts but it seems to have moved away from the original members thing

why don't one of you make a merchandise thread and get busy with the sowing machine! Razz

Yep your right to get this back on topic. I have started a thread 'SnM accessories' for the further discussion of Logo's and stuff! Throw your ideas on here! Wink

I have to agree with the equality amongst all idea. We don't want people joining to think that we think that we are better than them, just because we started posting before them. There will always be people who just come on now and then, and people that check out the site everyday. We want everyone to feel welcome to join in the threads and come along to the runs however often they are personally able to log in.
