Hey guys, just got caught up on what you've been talking about.

What an awesome idea! If everyone is excited enough for this contest to donate money, that must mean it was a good drawing.

My main concerns, however-

Some people may try to demand a refund if they don't win the contest. The last thing I want to bring to this forum is drama. That's why I decided to pay for the first one myself. I'd be happy to help script up strict rules, but I want your inputs first.

In my current financial situation, I will not be able to pay for a whole lot out of pocket. I got laid off a few weeks ago, and I'm starting to run on financial fumes until I can get a replacement job. I don't want to have a bunch of people pitch in money, but have it still not be enough to cover the costs of an import, causing the cancellation of the contest and refunds be issued.

What are your thoughts?

My idea is that you start fundraising, but don't actually start the contest until enough money is raised, so that you don't have to cancel. canceling the contest after people have donated may result in the donaters feeling scammed.

a warning should be directed that donating does not give you a higher chance of winning, and that it is bad sportsmanship to cancel a donation if you do not win.

I would be more than willing to donate 5 bucks, no strings attached, towards the next drawing. I think there should be rules for donating though. "The more you donate does not improve your chances of wining. If you donate and loose your money goes to helping the winner and isn't refunded. Maybe even put a donate limit of 5 bucks that way people cant over invest."

I think the 5$ limit is a great idea! it not only stops over spending, but also prevents large differences in donations as not everyone has alot to donate. (some people might donate 10$ and accuse 2$ donaters of being selfish, etc.)

I know this may sound like I'm stretching it.... but what if enough money was raised that a tank for the new fish could be included? big stretch, I know.
