So bingo is over. So what should we replace that section with? Any thoughts? I was thinking of a sort of freeola members arcade section. Have a variety of games arcade, puzzle etc etc. We can have a high score table which allows us to have bragging rights i suppose.

Additionally it could mean we could have tournaments. Winners of these tournaments could win a GAD or something.

Ok, so its very basic thoughts right now, but it could work and make the forums and freeola a place of excitement and fun. We could appeal to more people as well.

failing that, porn. Can we have porn?

How about designing a new graphic for the logo each time there's a special day of the year coming up, and the winner gets theirs used on that day or during the run-up to that day? Christmas is coming.

eg. a party hat on the G of Gameaday every year on the 10th of October. ;-)

Yes, the Bingo is gone!!! It was a horrible idea in my opinion. How about some creativity contests. Some graphics contests, and some story writing contests would be awesome. We could use the graphics contests to make Freeola banners, and maybe t-shirts.

Post it notes with Freeola.com written on them.

Stick as many as you can up on different places...

Seems to work for other viral marketing ploys.

Or a 'wear your identity' competition, where you need to wear something with a Freeola advert and your username on it (having a picture taken in the process, obviously).

No, I don't see people getting arrested with something Freeola branded would be that great. Although if anyone can think of something decent to do with a Freeola logo, I'll prob do it, with permission from Tony of course! :p

Possibly, though I don't think it would do Freeola's reputation any good... :D

so getting arrested by the police with the t-shirt on will get you top marks?

I never thought about it that way, but yes, it could be interesting if there are marks for making a fool of yourself too.

would the objective be to get maximum attention or have the guts to make a fool of yourself?

So if i walked around town at the height of the day wearing nothing but a tshirt that had the freeola slogan and took a photo of it. Or getting arrested by the police?


Reminds me of the PCG competition where people had to make a mockery of the MGS cardboard box idea where they had to wear it in places and take photos. One person stood in a box (feet only visible) holding a pcg mag when it was raining.

Something like; design a Freeola t-shirt or banner and take a photo of you wearing it somewhere you'll get noticed.
