    Maybe too late for 2013, but how about this?

    1. We start a new thread - Entries for Calendar Photos
    2. All members can participate and submit entries
    3. 12 Pictures with the most "likes" get chosen for the calendar
    4. Members who submitted those entries get their calendars free
    5. All other interested members pay for the calendar

    What do you guys think? Doable? If the Mods agree, I can take ownership of the whole exercise - design, printing and logistics.

    We are done with merchandise. Numbers and statistics prove that just a handful of members actually end up buying merchandise.

    Everybody just wants a free platform that they can use and abuse as they like. In fact we will no longer be making any enhancements / improvements to TFI.

    We are done spending our time, effort and money for people who are least appreciative and concerned about the forum.

    This is not a rant. Just a plain fact.

    @amogh, understand the fact that you are mentioning. But this should not be taken as a sign by people and discourage people to refrain from this forum. This is one of the few forums where we have the liberty to say anything and everything that we want about our own product and we are also free to say about other brands.

    This forum is mainly for cars, but still we are able to discuss anything under the roof.

    Really appreciate the efforts that the mods have put in time and again.

    @amogh & Mods Team, I understand the effort and pain you guys go through to arrange a single merchandise item.
    Always we can work out ways to see how we can get the merchandise through and get a good response.

    Next time, you are welcome to disturb me for anything related to any merchandise you plan.
    Always there to support in anyway I can.

    +1 - "Really appreciate the efforts that the mods have put in time and again."

    @amogh and Mods, just a thought, could we not have advertisers as other sites within this that could generate some revenue? Is it viable?

    Probably not many know the difficulty in running a web site like this. Could it be mentioned in a separate thread about the difficulties faced to run and maintain this website and at least some people would come forward to lend their help in whatever way they can.
  9. It isn't just the revenue that matters. yes it is needed but more than that what is essential is support and enthusiasm. we see selective presence and even a lower turnout when it comes to standing up for the forum. things are expected but to fulfill those expectations there aren't any front runners. all we have is "we need that" and "we need this"
    much of what effort goes is single handedly amogh's. this forum is for all enthusiasts but only if it is supported so.

    Is any one of you interested in these 4"x4" FIAT stickers ? If yes I can get a few made as per order.

    There won't be any TFI logo or text anywhere but just plain FIAT.
