    Random question for the VMP staff...

    Do y'all ever give away (or sell) test presses of the VMP monthly records or exclusives? Given any thought to putting them up for auction?

    Side note: I would be die for a test press of RATM's "Evil Empire" or The Avalanches "Wildflower."

    We have a giant pile of them. I know Cam has a bunch. We don't always do TP on exclusives--particularly on ones we just have a color variant for--but I know we have multiple copies of TPs for every ROTM somewhere. Good food for thought.

    I have one. Donivan of Blessed Feathers sent me one with a sweet note. They had a random drawing of people who bought stuff from their web store. We cleaned their store out after the AOTM was announced. I was so excited, because I had also somehow guessed it was the AOTM at the midnight hour.

    Thanks for the info @Storf

    While I like @Skalap's idea of having them randomly inserted into shipments (a la secret 7's) I do think an auction might be a good way to raise money for potential charities. Especially considering that the holidays are just around the corner. Maybe a poll to determine what charities best suit VMP?

    Just a thought.

    Oh man, that reminds me, around this time last year I started a thread to talk about doing a "forumraiser" for an organization (if we could find one we all agreed on), but I had the mods lock it until I could come back around to it, and never did.
