Currently i'd like to discuss options on art raffles as well as writer's raffles! They could be separate things, or maybe we could do a raffle collab too. Keep reading for more information. Punkae and I have toyed with the idea of raffles for a long while now I think, and I believe it could be a fun way to gain site revenue as well as revenue to artists/writers who participate. The basic idea behind it is if you are a content creator and would like to offer your services up for the raffle, you'd get a portion of the money. Tickets could cost anything from 2-3 dollars too 5-8 dollars depending on what the raffle offers, an we could offer limited amount of tickets and do the raffle once all are sold. A break down could be like this: Each ticket @ 5 usd, with 100 tickets possible for a total of 500usd. 3 content providers chose to participate! The site could take 10% of the total amount of tickets purchased (50usd in this case) to help host the website as a whole, money which could be used to expand the website further or simply keep it running, and then each content provider would respectively get the remainder split (In this case, 150usd each). For the rewards, they could be something like each content provider could offer x amount for the reward. As an artist this could be like a sketch or colored piece, or a few of each etc depending on what they are comfortable with, and for writers it could be short stories, bios or other sorts of things etc, that the winners of the raffle would win. There could be 1 winner, or multiple winners, depending on what is offered (Or maybe if we use the 3 content provider scenario instead of each creator doing something for the winners, there could be three winners and each gets to pick an artist of their choosing etc? though this might be a bit more complicated if two of the winners want the same person xD) Plus depending on the expense of each ticket (If its for say 3 usd each, the content providers may just want to offer sketches, while 5+ would be full works etc) we could offer dif stuff. There could be three types of raffles: Art, written, and collab. For art the artists would offer their art, for writers they'd offer their writing respectively. Then we could have a third tier for collab stuff, where the writers do writing for the winners and then the artists draw based on what is written (Could be used for short stories wherein the writer doesa few pages of written stuff and then each artist does a page of their own art to go with it type deal? XD) Sorry if i'm leaving out any details. I just would like to know everyone's thoughts on this idea?
