Should frihost sell merchandise to earn more money? Frihost has over 10000 members and I'm sure someone will buy them and Bondings can make more money and maybe increase the specs of the servers like maybe instead of 250mb webspace maybe we can have 30 mb more? I would love to buy a frihost keychain..
The answer will probably be no but I'd also like a FRIHost keyring
moved to suggestions forum as well.
FriHost merchandise would be cool
I suppose you could make your own at a site like www.cafepress.com or something
lol yeah but I was just making a suggestion...Still hoping for a frihost keychain!
Yeah sounds good! I don't know if i would go as far as warin a FriHost T-shirt but a keyring yeah I'de buy one!
I would like such an idea for a t-shirt or a keychain.
But also there must be a good and cool design in order to captivate members
Like the bear thing in phpbb.com.
But anyway, I rarely buy things online and even if i do, i buy only in extremely secure places.
I like a T-Shirt saying I Hacked FriHost or something funny like that, That would increase sales for sure with the funny message.
Heck for the Pothead Community, You can release: FriHost, A Joint Effort with a weed sign JK. But I definately would buy the first T-Shirt.
I would still prefer keychains, not t-shirts...
Yes you can also conduct a contest for the one who comes up the best catch phrase.
Many would eagerly participate in this promotion.
Someone can think up some special gift article like stuff to sell.
It wil be nice.
Or something like Ebay? If people want to sell things they can sell it on Frihost, Exactly like Ebay, because if u have more than 10000 people atleast half would want to sell cd's dvd's and all?
and i came up with another one, if we ever start selling t-shirts: Actual quotes from users.... maybe some stuff from the Best Quotes thread (too lazy to get the link here)
noobie is gonna be immortalized for sure then
The ebay idea is invalid. Frihost is a place for web hosting, not for people to sell stuff
Seriously, I agree with you.
For implementing something like that, you need to put in lot of work, big time
And I'd rather buy from ebay than here.(it has a better reputation as a seller/buyer)
Who says we HAVE more than 10000 people.
More than half have never posted.
800+ are in -ve points
Only around 500 users are active, if you can call that.
Useless for a forum like this
FriHost merchandise = cool
FriHost Auction = Nah... why when theres ebay and who would actually use it....
how about a shirt saying. n0obie4life vs. Blaster thursday May 5 2006 at 8:00 and have a picture of a computer
Selling merchandise is always a good idea.
There are 2 good reasons I can think of.
1) Money gained from selling the merchandise can be used to keep frihost.com running.
- And those who want to donate can get something in return for their nice deed.
- Just imagine people wearing frihost.com T-shirts and walking down the streets. If the design of the T-shirt is good, more people will be likely to notice it and more people will check out this awesome site and hopefully join us =)
Besides, it's so easy to set up a small e-shop nowadays...
You will be bankrupt by making those shirts
Nobody except you is gonna buy it
If you hat a FriH hat I'd buy it...And a keychain too probably ...or a beanie..lol I'd support you guys ! hells yes!
i would defenitly buy a tshirt!
i love what frihost is doing in providing webspace and would be wearing a tshirt of frihost with pride!
also would be a commercial stunt
I think that it is a brilliant idea to sell things here and I think Bondings should hire you to be incharge of sales.I'm serious on this one.I think may people will buy stuff since the forum probably has like a million members (not counting the visitors)
The only problem I think is that it might slow down the forums but that's just a guess.I know nothing about internet traffic except the name"Internet Traffic "
I would love to have a frihost keychain or maybe for that matter a pen, a t-shirt is also a good idea.So, what do you Bondings?Ready for some serious selling?
Yes Indeed, i would love Frihost Merchandise.
But the question is who , would buy it & what benifit the buyer gets. :s
And since merchandise is akin to donation I dont think Bondings will accept it. So dream abt merchandise till bondings says no
Dang your mean. But I agree with what you said just don't you think you could of been nicer about it.
Go ahead and use the Frihost logo.
Just don't blame us if you make losses out of selling the stuff..and be sure to have a "we are not directly related to frihost" there.
I'd like Frihost baby bum wipes =/
I think that frihost is at an early stage at the present time, no point in trying to sell merch at the moment...
baby bum wipes? You have a baby?
Yes, I agree that frihost is at an early stage but I WANT MY FRIHOST KEYCHAIN!
This is something I will most likely be implementing one day, but most likely not in the soon future.
Yay! Any ideas on what we would have?
Though, currently it would have no effect for me, I'd rather he implemented some good use for the frih$ first..
because this was told a long time ago.
I mean, he said a long time ago that, in the future he might bring out stuff for frih$.
I dont mind if that gets implemented first
I didnt think he ment for Frih$
No of course he cant sell merchandise for frih$
I say, that he could implement the earlier idea of selling bandwidth and space for frih$ before implementing the idea of selling merchandise for real money
oh yeah I agree...
sory for the missunderstanding my fault
Well, I personally think that if you need more than 10GB of bandwidth for a website, you should seriously consider paid hosting But yeah, upgrades of some kind would be good for FriH$...
<offtopic>Billybob, you're the creator of poxyproxy.com? Nice . I've used that site quite a few times...
lol thanks nice to see someone still uses us, im down to gettin 200 - 300 Unique visitors per day now (ater the downtime)
p.s. I agree about considering paid host if you use over the supplied bandwith as did I, I got paid hosting for poxyproxy but they banned it! = that 2 week down time I had...
<off topic, sorry>
Billybob, i did find a a script from a link on your site, is it your script at phproxy.com
And how much bandwidth does it consume every month, I mean the site.
It was phproxy.....I will PM you now with the details
oh yeah, i'd buy a keychain and i'd show it off,
might get a hat, just depends on what it says
It is amazing to note that there is a "Popular" topic in the "Suggestions" forum.
Usually no0bie cuts off a topic in a few replies.
Anyway, Bondings said he wont be doing it in the near future, so why just argue along
Bah true, Bondings said he'll implement this soon..
So suggestion approved?
Just wait, in the near future.
