    The SVS give away is a great idea, but the winner is selected by the luck of the draw and really doesn't have any lasting impression on the rest of the members.

    I suggest HTF conduct a contest open to all members who have HT web pages listed in the members theater section.

    A panel of judges could be selected from the forum. This honor could be given to members who give good advice, write quality reviews or even by randomn.

    The contest could have a wide variety of categories beyond just the "mother of all home theaters". Most inviting HT, best webpage, the little theater that could, and biggest wire nest are just some that I can think of off the top of my head. Nothing quantifiable like most money spent or biggest screen. Just subjective categories to have some fun.

    Prizes could be just the honor of being selected or some free swag from studios and manufacturers if you could get it.

    You never can please everyone so to cover the vast majority of the membership the best contest to have is to just leave it up to the luck of the draw.

    Maybe next year we will do something like this. Since SVS is going to be giving this away a couple of weeks before Christmas it is really too late to do something like that.

    This contest will be done as outlined in my previous post. Just submit your name and HTF username to SV Subs and you are entered.

    Thanks for the suggestion though.

    I wasn't trying to suggest that the SVS give away be changed. The SVS give away is a great idea. [​IMG]
    My suggestion was just a thought on how to get more milage out of future give aways and foster that community feeling of the HTF. [​IMG]

    We will always be looking into all kinds of contests, etc. on the forum. One of the things that I would like to see us start is an HTF award that we give out to studios, companies, etc. This is just another idea that we have been kicking around. The past few months we have had to deal with software and hardware issues and now that those are behind us we will look into other things like future contests, etc. with greater attention.

    Thanks for the suggestion.
