The TOTALLY HYPOTHETICAL "Babes of TWF" Calendar idea.....

Ok, so the idea has been tossed about the "Girls in leather are HAWT!" thread quite a bit, and there seems to be some interest... However, IF (big if, seeing as it's pending Shan's approval) there was to be such a thing, we'd have to get moving on it, and quickly, if we wanted it to be a 2008 calendar.

So first things first, some possibly guidelines:

- In order to prevent the B.S. that accompanied the ad contest, I think there'd have to be some requirements, i.e. "Member since....." and post-count minimums. Also, since we have so many hot ladies that are members of this forum, it might have to be limited to them (and just GF's/wives of members).

Then there's the lineup:

- Ummmm... so we have: (IN NO PARTICULAR ORDER... just rattling off names as they pop into my head)

RaeRR
Pippi
ItGirl
Devilstonic
1HBC
Neebs
Katherine
JustPucky
Melime
Psychochild (sorry!!!!!!!)
Twinkies
Accaliste
Becca_007

Who else...

Brie?
DJNyteblast?
Princess_Rider?

In any case, we've easily got 12 ladies (assuming a couple might not be up for being recruited for this project)... and we can always do a collage for the month of December so as to include a few more than 12 ladies.

- I think in order to avoid the drama like we witnessed with the TWF ad, we'd let the mod team be the 'voters'... and PRIVATELY (though voting would only become necessary if there were lots more than 12 ladies interested in participating).

- And of course, Mod Team would have ultimate approval over the pictures, and the final layout, since the goal is to raise money for the site, right?

Other thoughts...

- The best route to go with a project like this is for us to submit the photos to one (or a couple) of people who are talented with Photoshop (Twinkies, you came to mind.... ), so they can layer in the month, the screenname, and any bio info.

Then submit the prepared layouts to Cafepress. They'll print and process calendars by the piece/as ordered for about $14.95/each. If we want to make money for the site, we tack on, let's say, $5/each, with that $5 going directly to the site.

By using a site like Cafepress, we eliminate the need for minimums (this is what kept the calendar on another site from getting off the ground -- they never made minimum), and no one here has to bother with warehousing or shipping them. We might pay a little bit more per calendar, but the convenience makes it worthwhile.

- IF we're going to do this, we have to act quickly... ideally a 2008 calendar should be available for shipping by September, which means we would need to set a hypothetical photo submission date of about August 1st. That's not much time, in reality....

- As for layout, I think a double-pic/split-pane layout would be great... one shot in gear (i.e. riding, posing, at the track, etc...) and the second shot could be whatever the lady likes -- whether it's sexy, just normal in street clothes, etc... whatever... but one shot should definitely represent her as a rider.


SOOOOOO... feedback? Questions? Comments? Shan????

Another idea for voting would be to only let first 1000 members vote, but I don't know if that's possible to program into the system.

Will cafepress allow a pic for each month? There is always a 16 month option.
zazzle has them too

I don't think that's fair or sensible. There are members like myself with 1000 posts that only joined a month ago, and there are first 1000 members that only have less than 10 posts and haven't been on here in a couple years. That doesn't make sense to me as a requirement.

Either letting just the mods do it, like nee said, or members with some significant post count, would probably make sense.

Or if you did want to allow everyone to vote, you could just use a join date as a cutoff. Like before this past contest...

Understandable. Still not sure if it's possible to even program into the software, though.

So we only had 4 women willing to pose for the magazine contest and we are concerned about who's going to vote in the 12 women who are supposedly going to be in the calender?

Well I guess it would be up to the ladies as to who wants to be in it. There are 16 and 18 month calendars so voting may not be necessary? If not I would say maybe let members with at least 50 posts and a join date of before the polling starts to vote?

I'm down for this...I agree that cafe press is the best way to go, that's what was used for the local calendar i'm involved in.

As far as voting, wait and see how many women are interested in this, if we have more than 12, do an 18 month calendar. If we have more than 18 then go to voting.

I believe with the forum software, private forums can be created and anyone to be involved in the voting can be given access to that forum. None of the rest of us can see it.

Like with the 2WT contest, I think that all participants should be active members of the board to participate. Additionally, seeing as how Shan is putting up ads on the board, maybe we could get some sponsors and put a few ads in the calendar itself? This would help bring the cost of the calendars down just a bit and maybe we can sell more of them.

Just a thought.
