It starts with the members, I am vice president of a BC chapter on another forum that has a good number of participating members with lots of discussion. We did the exact same give-away that went very well. I know this chapter is lacking members but its not going to grow by it self.
I understand that a lot of diesel owners have better things to do than spend time on a diesel chat forum but if you look at the stats most member join because they had an issue, searched for a solution on the web and ended up a message board such as Powerstroke Diesel. As the owner of a diesel repair shop 75% of the people that come in say "I was on a chat forum and read that...."
I can not see how trying to grow the BC Chapter can come across as negative to some but I apologies if I offended anyone. I would like to ad that I did not retract the give-away. I offered to extend it with a better product and I am open to any suggestion on what that product should be and what the "rules" should be.
I am not a event organizer, just a diesel enthusiast so if you have any suggestions on how you all would like to see us give away free products, we are all ears. There will be a product, possibly products given away here as it grows and it will, like it or not LOL. If you think about it this chapter has seem more discussion in the last week than it has in months, possibly ever.... so its already working!
What I don't want is someone to win a product that has no interest in it or supporting the chapter.
