Guys and gals, even if you are not interested in the flashlights, please take the time to vote.

https://www.survivalistboards.com/sho...d.php?t=757057

So far, over 100 views of the thread, and only a handful of votes. We can do better than that.

Here is the deal, it is difficult for me to approach a company and ask them if they would like to sponsor a contest when only a dozen people enter.

If the members of this community would like to see better stuff offered in a contest, then you have to participate.

The problem for some of us is that being outside the US we CANNOT participate.

This forum is home to many people from outside the US. See if it's possible to have a contest open to everyone.

To be honest, in my short time here, I have never noticed that there were any contests going on.

Now I know.

How about encouraging more quality content and discussion about survival.

I think there is plenty quality content and plenty of survival discussion.
I also think a variety of 'non survival' topics is par for the course. This is s community of 'like minded' folks, and at least some of us value the opinions (on various matters) of others among us. Discussing among our peers daily topics is a quality of its own

Default Would do reviews again but no social media

I have no twitter, no face book, no picture poster thing. This is the extent of my socializing online, so signing up or liking as a requirement is not going to happen.

A few months ago I received the TG06S from Thorefire there was a give away here that "if selected" all you had to do was write a review, post it here which I did "link below" and they liked it and asked me to post it to another link they supplied, which I did with no issues. The customer rep I interacted with was very professional and a pleasure to deal with. It is still my EDC pocket light for the reasons in my review.

I would be willing to do reviews such as this with just about any gear. I would also go into even deeper depth and do detailed pictures depending on the item if selected again. This type of set up I had no issues with signing up for.

I went in to vote, but the poll was closed. Did give my opinion.

I do not participate in many of the contests, so do not pay much attention to them. Mostly because they are seldom for the types of products in which I have an interest. And usually when they are, the items are not the ones I would prefer.

But I will try to participate more often to help generate the interest.

Just my opinion.

I don't participate in the contests because... well, I'm a mod and don't want to take away from our members chances or do anything that would seem unfair (like a mod winning a contest)

My reasoning as well. But I will do the polls and contribute to the item selection process.

Well after I did the one above. Thorefire came to me outside of SB and had me do another. So you can do some and not conflict I believe and me personally would like to see some volunteers get some items to review as a site perk, as long as it made its way to the masses as well.

I was participating in the contests until I realized I was signing up for tons of junk mail and apparently having my email address sold. I stopped because of the aggravation. Sounds a bit strong, but that's what happened..
