Its Christmas! Tomorrow. 

So I am quite excited. And as it's nearly Christmas, that means New Year is arriving soon. And I'm hoping for a prosperous Year in many ways. For example, I'd like this site to get off the ground and become a little more functional, as right now I have 100 Unique Views but only 1 person has commented. Which I find quite sad, but I'm sure things can only get better. 

So thats one of the things I would like. 

Onto the Contest.

So I thought since Christmas is on it's way as well as New Year I'd host a site contest. Since Contests aren't allowed on Foo. All you have to do is post a comment on this post with your Foo-User, when we get to 100, I will randomly pick two members to get a Free LL. Which I will buy at a later date. Then the other 98 can all post on a blog post. And 5th to post will get a LL or something like that.
 
So start inviting friends :)

So I just had a "brainwave" which doesn't happen often. And I think this is actually quite a good idea, and would work well and may even encourage people to "buy from Foo" which is sometimes a good thing.

My Idea

Well you know user run shelters, for example "Old Foo's Rescues" well I was thinking maybe Foo could offer for $3-$5 per month (the same as Club Foo used to be, or maybe it should be a bit more, they will get better things!) but for this price a User would have there account become an official Shelter and they would get a nice shiny badge.

What would they get?

  • 10 FooDollars for everyday they Log in.
  •  Bonus 300 FooDollars every month, then they can rescue one of the Expensive Pets. 
  •   1 Free shelter pet of their choice every 30 Days. 
  •   Be able to "gift" pets. This would be good as Shelters are supposed to be "non-profit" so the shelter would earn no money here. And they should also be able to receive pets free of charge, so then the pets don't have to go to the real shelter 
  •   Instead of a Sale, they have a donation page, where people can donate FooGems and FooDollars (Tax-Free) to go towards saving other pets.
  •   Access to a special members only Forum, where they and other Official Shelters can work together and help out each other so as to rescue as many pets each month.
  •   A counter next to their name on their profile to say how many pets they have successfully rescued and re-homed. (The counter would be split in two so both figures could be shown).
  •   Unlimited pets, and unlimited Food, Water and Flea med, they are a shelter after all.


And another possible thing would be...

  •   It says on their profile how many FooDollars and FooGems they have been given, with top 5 people who have donated, I think that would be a nice little incentive to donate.
  •   Or you can become a Volunteer for that shelter, your name is then featured on the Profile Automatically (or the friends list could become the Volunteers list??) When you are a volunteer you could do things like raise money and advertise.


So their is my little idea, I think I might submit it to Foo.
Edit: I have submitted it :) http://feedback.foopets.com/forums/29673-general/suggestions/1316933-official-shelters

Okay I'm not normally one to rant, but I feel the need to. 

Oh and just a note: I am not a member of Club Foo, but I feel lack of Customer - Business relationship is at an all time low.
                                                                                                                                                                                                            What is wrong with Foo, I mean really. They take your money for Club Foo. $5 - $15 per month. I mean Fair enough, your getting a premium service. But are you really? Think about it...                                                                     - They offer insta-care. One click care for each pet, but can't you do that without being a member by going to m.foopets.com Plus there you can do it quickly, who cares if you have to click a few more buttons, it still works faster.   - They then say we'll give you first pick of new breeds. How can you have first pick, if there is no new breed? You can't can you. It's just impossible. So that little "bonus" isn't really a "bonus" is it, if you can't have it.                                     - Foo then says we will give you a free gift every month or to be precise "Receive an Exclusive Rare Gift made exclusively for club members every thirty days" But how is it rare? I mean every single Club Foo member will get it, not that rare then is it Foo.  
- To try and spice up the deal and make you hand over your cash each month Foo then says this "Have access to the member-only ClubFoo Forum where Admins will listen to your ideas for more ClubFoo features" But this one is extremely pointless. 1. There is already a feedback place available for everyone to use. 2. Admins haven't put anything into place which we want for a long long while as far as I am concerend. You may have different opinions, feel free to share. I welcome comments.

Those are all the points I can be bothered to point out a 2 AM. But I hope I've made you think just a little bit before you hand over your cash. 

Again, I welcome comments and criticism in all forms.
