    DS is considering running a raffle for some premium prizes.
    This raffle could include things like a GoPro, a Mugen, other premium kendamas ($100+) etc.

    Would you cop a ticket?

    What do you think is a reasonable ticket price?

    Ticket sales going towards improving DS? Paying for this/ future raffles? Or going to some non-profit or something?
    Reason for doing the raffle would help me decide <3

    They’d have to be pretty darn cheap, but I’d snag a few. Like $1 for two tickets or something along those lines.

    If it went to improvements on DS then yeah, I would probably buy a couple for sure.

    Definitely for this reason. I would love to suport the people who make DS possible, and if some (or even all) of the money goes back into DS, this would be an amazing win/win situation even if you don't win, because you have the enjoyment of contributing to a better DownSpike

    id probably go up to 10$ on a ticket maybe buying two, especially if it goes into doing more raffles and improvements to the site

    Sam and admin... this is exactly what I was thinking for the personal collections idea . If the money went twards the costs needed to help fund DS to be able to do these sore of improvements to the site . I'm all about helping DS strengthen and make other things happen within the site .. ;)

    As an honest and not the richest person I will say that I wouldn't give more than 5$ for a ticket. :(

    The raffle $$ would go towards site improvements (news feed, my collection feature, etc).

    But, now that someone mentioned charity we could do something where part goes to DS and part goes to any charity the winner wants? or we pick one?

    I'd be down to buy a couple as long as they weren't $20 or something. I mean I don't think I'll win so I would basically be helping ds, which I'm cool with.

    I’d say sub 10$ would have the largest impct as more people would be able to get in on it, More tickets sold, better improvements. I just tossed charity out there, I don’t want to be the guy that says “ahh charities don’t need our help” cuz DS also needs some help so where the money goes should definitely be up to the admins / whomever pays these bills. Alternatively we could hit up Kendamas cares and see if they have any ideas on where money could go in the event of future raffles. <3 just some thoughts.

    I'd probably up for a ticket. How would we pay, PayPal? Also there a few international members on here, so how would postage be factored in and import taxes?

    I was thinking 5$ per ticket every 20$ you spend you get an extra ticket?
    just an idea. :D
