View Full Version : Would this be allowed on the Mane?

Quick question. My wife wants to win a competition from her favorite photographer. She asked me to get votes for her. All it takes is a like of the page and a comment on the picture.

Rather than put in effort hounding friends and family who are generally lazy, I wondered if I could put something on the Mane and offer, say, 25 or 50 cents per user that commented to the OM fundraiser. I win because I get to keep the wife happy, the OM community raises a few bucks, and we all smile. Would that be allowed here? I wanted to make sure as I don't want to spam the place but figured a mutual benefit might be a good deal. With all the sorts of these things that pop up from time to time, it could be a viable fundraising opportunity to help TJ out.

Mods?

EDIT: Looks like folks think it would be OK. I'll go with .50 for up to 100 people. $50 contribution for clicking on two links if you have a facebook account.

Here's what you do.

Click here: http://www.facebook.com/veritasphoto and like the page.

Then click here: http://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=197751060250739&set=o.71793390916&ref=nf and put any random comment. Just tag a -OM on the end of it so I'll know to count you. As soon as this is over, I'll delete the thread so as to protect anyone hesitant about linking their OM and facebook lives.

Thanks again! Everybody wins!

Well I don't want to bum off anyone so I don't mind giving back. For community efforts (the save the animals thread, for example) I can absolutely understand but where this was a personal benefit, I just wanted to see.

I'll go ahead and add the info to the OP. If this is against the rules, just let me know and I'll get rid of it.

Much appreciation gentlemen. That's two.

Not looking forward to pictures but what the wife wants, I try to make sure she gets. I don't mind supporting my two favorite things at all (her and the Mane).

LOL

Preferably the fewer "I'd hit it"'s we get, the better.

Thanks for the comments though! Much appreciated to all! Wife appreciates as well!

Haha... It can only be resisted until you've tried it.

After that, it got addicting making comments when people act like sobbing teenage girls and I couldn't leave. Made one status post in the year I've been on it and it was this thing for the wife but I check it probably 10 times a day.

I also refuse to friend people.. they can friend me but I'm not friending anyone.

seems to be 3 groups when it comes to facebook,

1 Baja type who want no part of it, and insist on sitting in a cave with a thin foil hat on to stay off the grid.

2 people who only share and are only friends with people they are actually friends with.

and this last one is where i fit in as do most people i think

3 you friend anybody who you've basically walked on the same street with.

There's a rule here. No starting threads or posting until you have 100 posts.

I promise I didn't show her the thread (http://www.orangemane.com/BB/showthread.php?p=2827574#post2827574). I told her where the people were coming from and she did the rest.

I love how people slam you out of the blue and then when you react to it they tell you to lighten up. Maybe if you weren't a dick in the first place you would not have to tell me to "Lighten up".

Put me on the "I do not face book list as well" Nothing about hiding in a cave, I just do not care enough to follow the sheep.

I tried to respond to this earlier, but my internet connection has been a hassle all weekend. I have no problems when regulars of this forum do stuff like this. I don't like it when non-contributors who are just trying to get over try to use the forum like this.

There's a fourth kind of person toward face book too. Those who have a real life and think that being a self grandizing doucher who posts a picture of every worthless moment in ones vain, colorless existance is a sad waste of a human brain.

"Enjoyed a delicious nonfat pumpkin spice latte after an invigorating 5 mile run and a trip to the farmer's market where I found some perfect plum tomatoes for my homemade stew. Junior rolled over for the first time in his crib this morning and on my way home, I killed a drifter. Plus, today I didn't even have to use my A.K., I gotta say it was a good day."
