Nerd Alert: Spafford nugs.net Subscription Giveaway and Fundraiser... The Reprise



  • Nerds! In celebration of the release of the Raleigh show to nugs.net we've decided to run our first prize giveaway/fundraiser of 2018! This is your chance to plug into the band's official releases and hear all that they have to offer in pure, chomper-free, glory.

    We also want to take this opportunity to ask you to help us fund this site. There are real dollar costs involved in running and maintaining this infrastructure. If you use this site, please consider making a donation to support it. We are 100% community supported and nobody involved in the project takes a penny for ourselves. We donate our time, energy, and money, because we love this band and we love the fans. You do not need to donate to participate in the drawing.

    Prizes
    Let's be honest. You want to know about the prizes. Let's get to it. We have a few subscriptions to offer and we want to get them into your hands. To do this we will structure the drawing as follows:

    • There will be a total of (3) prizes given away.
      • (1) lucky winner will receive a 1 year subscription to nugs.net
      • (2) lucky winners will each receive a 3 month subscription to nugs.net
    • The drawing will take place on Sunday, March 11th at 12:00PM Arizona Time
      • (This is subject to change if real life interferes. You will be notified ahead of time should the time of the drawing change.)
    • The drawing will be live streamed on the Spaffbase Facebook page
      • As soon as the live stream is completed we will post the video to our youtube channel and make it available on this thread.
    • Names will be placed in a list which will be randomized and numbered. A random number will be generated and the name which matches that number will be chosen as a winner.
    • Depending on how the fundraising goes we may add an additional 1-year subscription to the drawing. Generosity is contagious. We will announce any additional subscriptions in this thread, so keep an eye on it.
    • Donation is not required to participate in the drawing. If you decide to donate, please post your donations to our paypal account. https://paypal.me/spaffnerds/5
      • We suggest $5 but don't let that hold you back. We'll take $1 and we'll take $50. Any amount helps. We ask that you use the "friends and family" option to avoid fees. If you need to use a credit card the fees may be unavoidable, that's okay.

    How Do I Enter?

    • Like the Spaffbase Facebook page and/or follow us on twitter.
    • Come back to this thread and add your name to the list and say something like "I'm in" (but feel free be more creative).
    • Share this thread with your friends who are into the scene, bonus (worthless internet) points if you turn somebody new on to Spafford.
    • Consider making a donation using our paypal account. It doesn't have to be much, whatever you can contribute. Remember, 100 people donating $1 is as powerful as one person donating $100. There's strength in numbers and this community is strong.

    We have some REALLY exciting stuff coming right around the bend and we expect the coming months to bring some cool changes and features that you guys will enjoy. We seek to give you new and interesting ways to engage with your favorite band and this amazing community. Thank you, the Nerds, for what you do on a daily basis to make this site great. Without you this is just a web space. With you this is a community.


  • $$$

    Did my part, thanks for leaving the light on for us Damian! Appreciate all the hard work on spaffnerds. So great to have all the stats, instant updates and great community of fans!


  • $$

    All in here!



  • @damian I'm totally in!!! Spafford is my new thing!!!!!!!



  • I'm in and leaving the light on...



  • All in it for the ride.



  • OK, I want to (and most likely will) make a PayPal donation of $5 to help you guys out.

    But do consider a few things please. Many people might not be comfortable sending donations directly to YOU Damien. I'm sure you are an honest guy and only care about promoting Spafford and being on the forefront of a cool musical movement.

    However, if you want people to donate, perhaps you should set up SPAFFNERDS as an independent entity, separate from yourself. Then use something like Quicken to keep the books, and make those transactions freely available on a quarterly or at least yearly basis online so people can see where their donations are going. (And that you aren't using them for personal expenses).

    I was a member for a few years of a Feral Cat Rescue group and doing these things did promote more donations, especially since we were registered as a 501C3 tax exempt organization.

    Yes, doing all that requires more work, but can be beneficial to a group in the long run. Just my 2 cents...

    Good luck to SPAFFNERDS...

    We're working on it. :) Truly. Our plan is to create a not for profit... stay tuned. We're short on resources but there's good to come. For now, you guys just have to trust me. I can't offer you more than that. If people don't want to make a donation, that's totally okay. Still enter the drawing. You'll still be in the running for a prize. No worries. I totally understand the reservation and/or hesitation.
