Okay folks,

Here is something I want to run by you...

I have been toying with ideas to get new users to join. I have found in the past that no matter what I post or how well I do in the search engines, the best users I get are really referrals from you good folks. So, with that in mind, what do you think of having an MFP New User Contest? We could have new users post in the "New User Forum" and they could post who gets credit for their joining. We could have an up-to-date page showing the results of the contest. We could run the contest from now until the walleye opener. As for a prize, I really cannot offer anything substantial... only myself and my time. How about a day of fishing with me on a lake of the users choice? I could supply all the tackle we would need, bait, gas... the winner could just show up. I have a fairly nice boat with all the amenities. Maybe we could pick the top 2 winners. I have plenty of room. We could start a new thread on this and just keep it going. I will not be able to do this ON the opener, but maybe a couple of weeks after the opener.

Now this is just in the planning stage. You all may have some ideas that will make this idea better.

What do you all think?

Well... this is going over like a load of bricks. Comments? I know I am not that great of a fisherman, but this is embarrassing blush smiley

I think it sounds like a good idea.

I know that I have refered 3-4 people here in the last week alone all were from FM and were looking for info on BSL. Not much info on FM about that lake but there is a ton here.

I think Fishnhawk was one of the guys I refered, not sure if any of the other guys stopped by or actually registered yet.

I like the idea, but I think it might be hard for the regulars to comment since they will not be part of the contest.

Dude,
I'm always telling guy's on the lake to come & check us out.
I do not need a contest to do what I should be doing as an active user of this site & that is to get guy's to come here.
I think your idea is great.
I'd love to be on the pampered end of things for once instead of working to make everyone else's trip enjoyable.

I just want to know one thing....Do you gaurentee me fish? hahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahaha HOOOOO!

I'm not looking for you to answer & it is not a statement about your fishing ability either. I just hear that a lot & I thought to throw it on you. hehehehhahahahhooooo! wink smiley

Hey Bobber Down,

Why wouldn't regulars be part of the contest? I would think this could be open for everyone.

As for actually initiating something like this, I am just trying to come up with ideas. And no, CK... I cannot guarantee fish, but I must say, I haven't been skunked for several years. Of course, the lake would have to be of my choosing then...

Any other ideas out there on trying to expand the user database... I am all ears.

I like the idea of new people joining and posting smile smiley I'm curious if ANYONE's ever even come to this site referred by the MFP banner I've got on my site and I've blogged with a link to the site.

Dude,
My bad, I thought it was a contest for just new users. I must have been sleeping when I wrote that. Yeah, I like the idea!

Webdude,

you're good with the 'html' coding and stuff.. you can add TOO the new user registration a form/box where it asks them to tell you who referred them right? Then maybe.. (just an idea).. have two contests.. one for our referrals to members and one for new users to win something.

Maybe run it from January through March when people (besides CK and Iceman) are getting cabin fever from being inside so long.

Just a couple suggestions of course
