Ideas for a contest...
 
So, I have a lot of stuff sitting around... Extra fish, plants, books, substrate.. etc....

Would anyone participate in a contest or a RAOK where the first five people paypal me $10 through paypal and get a random prize?

Possible prizes:
Reverse trio of guppies or endlers, plants, books, or 10-20 pounds of my freshwater plant substrate I invented(when I have it perfected)

I like the idea of it being a contest... Anyone else?

well 1st a RAOK is a random act of kindness which implies free not for a fee....

2nd not sure if to many would fork up $10 to some one with no clear idea what they are getting in return..

this is just my opinion however....

Well it's still a RAOK, since I'm not charging for the items... Just shipping...

Or I could do trivia or something? The problem is the winner would still have to pay shipping though.

I like the element of surprise with the exception of live fish.

I think you'd have to be specific there so only someone who would want a "trio of guppies" rather than a book would be willing to participate.

If its a real ROAK, then shipping would be included... Offering to pay a random person's grocery is a ROAK, asking for people to randomly paypal you money for a random prize is not a ROAK...

Well, we have one participant at least. I might as well come up with one. Where should I post it? This section?
