Team-BHP merchandise options...
reading Rudra's quote from (The TBHP T-Shirt Design Thread)The TBHP T-Shirt Design Thread which i've listed here for quick reference, i'd like to make some suggestions :-
for starters, i don't know whether the Mod-Team is really interested in such a venture or whether such a venture is currently feasible but in any case i do have a couple of suggestions regarding team-bhp merchandising options.
1. i'm a member on MBWorld.org and they have their own online shopping area located here -> MBWorld.org Apparel and Collectable Store.
i'm aware that Team-BHP.COM is just starting out and all the Moderatos are working professionals or students, and don't do this as a full-time job.
i'm not aware regarding the costs involved in upgrading the website and other details but as far as my knowledge extends, an online-shopping arena would make more sense than the previous method which involved wire-transfers to a bank account, etc.
2. pick-up a couple of sponsors (no pop-ups please!!), put their adds on the website so that every click on the ad earns you some money from the sponsor.
3. setup an account (eg. a PayPal account) where you guys can accept donations. maybe you won't get much benefit out of that but every little bit should help as i'm sure the Moderators are spending out of their own pockets to keep this site running.
thats all i can think of for starters, will try and add to it if further options come to mind.
BHPians please add your own inputs to this thread.....

i dont agree with this idea of making our site a profit making business. i think the mods are dopin a grt job by spending tehmselves in upkeep of this site. but being a forum, it is the most indistractive forum where you can concentrate on hte threads and not on the ads.
secondly the shopping kind of thing requires a lot of co ordination as well as logistics to have something like this.
i think we have team bhp stickers ans all bhpians have the option of choosing to buy them so that should be enough, i think.
