Does anyone have any suggestions for things you'd like to be able to redeem your points for? We'll have the GD shirts/stickers/pens, gift certificates and contest entries, but is there anything else you can think of? Hosting accounts? Domain names? Cash/PayPal? What about forum-type things like being able to change someone else's avatar/user title for a day, increased PM limits, access to special smilies, etc...? Someone has to have some creative ideas :D We have our own ideas & plans but we can always use more :)

I still haven't found the perfect Nalgene bottle. I've bought the knock-offs: mouth is too wide (good for putting in protein shake mix, but bad for drinking) and then I got a couple at Walmart with this ice pack you can put in it from the freezer (it's like trying to suck on a baby bottle).

Want some? LOL

I like Ray's ideas. Gadgets would be good.

Oooh. Good idea.

1 GottaPoint = $1.00 in GreenZap

Probably still not worth it, lol.

If we were to put, for example, an MP3 player in the store, would you rather have it be for a high amount of points that the first person that can afford (and wants it) can get it, or would you rather have the contest entry method where you can spend a few of your points for a chance at winning it? Or do some each way?

Buy the wide-mouth bottles with the insert to narrow the drinking path. That way you can put full ice cubes in or mix energy / protein drinks and not spill all over yourself.

I'd say do the contest entry method. High points is just asking for it. :D

Yeah, I would say go with the contest method, also. It makes it more interesting, and you don't have to pass up other drawings to save for one thing.

The sipper doesn't fit the bottle I linked, but I think that's obvious. The sipper fits the wide-mouth bottles.

I would say some each way.

You should start with a 1 GB MuVo TX FM.

I agree. Actually I think it'd be ideal to have several of a certain item, so the first several people can get one, like you do with the t-shirts and stickers. Then have contest entries for the "big" (i.e. expensive) things. But it's your money being spent LOL so I understand if you don't want to be buying multiples of various items. ;)

But I like the idea of having a few things that are simply available for the taking, so that not everything involves us using up our points just for a chance at something we didn't wind up winning. Although if the prize is something I really want, I'd probably risk it.

I like the contest idea for big items. I don't post much on forums, though, so I probably won't accumulate a lot of GottaPoints.

That's actually an interesting idea.

Admin? No way.

Mod for a day or week with limited capabilities? Maybe.
