30. UsukiDoll

AHHAHHHAHAaaaaaaaaaaaaaa

31. Kash_TheSmartGuy

Anything would be fine unless more than the size of the UNIVERSE

32. UsukiDoll

OS shoes and socks

33. pooja195

We also need to look at the profit being made though

34. pooja195

And if we have enough money or not

35. Astrophysics

Keychains/ pens/ erasers/ school utensils in genera;

36. UsukiDoll

yeah and the expenses too.. we want our profits to be greater than our expenses

37. pooja195

If people dont buy we cant sell

38. Kash_TheSmartGuy

See, Thank God I made this question. All those ideas!

39. UsukiDoll

man I should've took Business as a minor. I used to study those things.

40. pooja195

41. pooja195

OMG OWL CLOCKS!

48. UsukiDoll

49. pooja195

LOL

50. Kash_TheSmartGuy

Oh, Owl Shaped Post it notes

51. UsukiDoll

good one !... OS stylus pens for tablets?

52. pooja195

ooo owl phone cases

53. UsukiDoll
54. Kash_TheSmartGuy

Yes, AWESOME why not OS iPad Cover, iPhone

55. UsukiDoll

what about covers for android tablets?

56. Kash_TheSmartGuy

Well, they come later as the android app.

57. UsukiDoll

k... owl nail stickers XD!!!!!!!!

58. Kash_TheSmartGuy

59. pooja195

owl scented stickers for kids c:

60. UsukiDoll

strawberry flavor XD

61. pooja195

CHOCOLATE

62. Kash_TheSmartGuy

That would work!

63. Kash_TheSmartGuy

Even better- OS laptops

64. UsukiDoll

too expensive :/

65. pooja195

guys the money :P

66. Kash_TheSmartGuy

LOL

67. UsukiDoll

plus the competition is deadly so no laptops or expensive electronics

68. UsukiDoll

Apple will destroy us...trust me ._.

69. Kash_TheSmartGuy

Those are just ideas. We'll decide later on if to put them or not

70. pooja195

its not our choice.

71. pooja195

its based prolly on what sells the most :)

72. Kash_TheSmartGuy

yeah, well not "us", you know "them"

73. UsukiDoll

Owl selfie sticks....nevermind O_______________O

74. horsegirl27

I would sooo buy a phone case and stuff like posters, notebooks, plushies, etc. Maybe not a sofa though. Or a galaxy.

75. UsukiDoll

Owl Coasters and Owl Wristbands.

76. jigglypuff314

owlfred stuffed animals anyone?

77. UsukiDoll

yeah...

78. jigglypuff314

right xD (sorry, on my phone) just saw what ususki was saying :P

79. UsukiDoll

OwlFred pencil pouches.

80. jigglypuff314

custom plash toys can be ordered for as little as $7 a piece but the minimum order is at least 500 of them - can we really sell that many? 81. UsukiDoll @jigglypuff314 Well, right now the site is super ad heavy and Preetha mentioned about how if everyone used QH more often or subscribed then there will be more money to generate revenue sot that all the expenses are paid. The problem is subscriptions are kind of boring . What can$10 bring besides a diamond instead of a circle for a SS and changing a title? It sounds similar to a magazine...a one year subscription to bad articles and perfume samples.

82. jigglypuff314

you didn't hear this from me *cough* but they are revamping the subscription idea

83. jigglypuff314

and have we said one of those drawstring bags? backpack things... people like those right?

84. UsukiDoll

I don't think we have mentioned backpacks???

85. jigglypuff314

lanyard? to hold your keys and cards or something?

86. UsukiDoll

oh that's a good one too

87. UsukiDoll

maybe we can start on selling cheap items like pencils, lanyards, erasers....just as a test to see if people buy them.. and then eventually work our way up into the more expensive items.. Owlfred decals XD

88. jigglypuff314

I like ur ideas :) will look through them when I get on my computer xD (then do my homework on where best to buy from etc) (then tell preetha) ;)

89. jigglypuff314

bumper stickers? ehhh but most of them are kids and dont drive...

90. jigglypuff314

or gather things up like pencils, lanyard, pen, eraser and bundle it up into a goodie bag ;)

91. UsukiDoll

they could put it on their parent's car for the bumper stickers with the slogan My Kid is a proud OpenStudier My Kid is a proud member of OpenStudy Or something like that. I remember when random cars on the road have stickers that said My Kid is a proud graduate at Some High School

92. UsukiDoll

goodie bags are a good option

93. jigglypuff314

but who would by such things when they could easily just go to staples or something and get the same perhaps we should focus on just unique things that people would actually buy

94. UsukiDoll

yeah... we need to focus on uniqueness of the product which is how a business succeeds. What does OpenStudy have that the majority of businesses don't have? Ex.. Jamba Juice and their smoothies.

95. UsukiDoll

Starbucks and their fancy syrups...whip creams

96. jigglypuff314

plush toy (I personally want one :P ) drawstring bag are both definite considerations pencil case, maybe (but it is mainly a girl thing since guys just use pockets which would cut the market in half)

97. UsukiDoll

I've seen guys with pocket cases, but it's just a plain design. x.x

98. jigglypuff314

we can consider stickers if it's dirt cheap to print them ;)

99. UsukiDoll

yeah... stickers don't cost that much to make.. it's just high quality images and custom avery paper.

100. jigglypuff314

ohohoh posters? but it would have to be a design people would actually like... ;-;

101. jigglypuff314

but people like putting posters of their favorite stuffs on their bedroom walls right? ...

102. UsukiDoll

yeah .. posters were popular back in the 90s

lol so not anymore is what you're saying?

104. UsukiDoll

hmmm... posters were popular because of all the boy groups or girl groups. Kids used to cover their entire bedroom walls with posters.

4imprint.com has some possibilies

owlfred shaped paperclips >:D

107. UsukiDoll

ahahhaaha!

108. UsukiDoll

that's a good one... light up OwlFred led charms.

I would totally get a cute case of 25 owlfred paperclips :3

110. UsukiDoll

OpenStudy Tote Bag. save the environment.

but don't only girls get those?

112. UsukiDoll

ummm... I think everyone uses them now? At least in my state, plastic bags are banned.

ahhh not over here my brother likes my tote bag only because it is sweater based and feels amazing :P

114. UsukiDoll

oh that's good... so.. hmmm... what else can there be for merchandise?

fat owlfred shaped stress ball o-o guys always like throwing things around

116. UsukiDoll

poor thing XD

oooo two in one stylus pen thing that's trending right? found a place that sells for $0.70 each min order 250 118. sleepyhead314 and helps with the openstudy app... ish they really need to fix that app ;-; 119. UsukiDoll oh yeah... stylus pens have been popular because no one wants to touch the screen all the time and leave oily fingerprints. 120. sleepyhead314 perf 121. UsukiDoll OwlFred toothpaste XD 122. sleepyhead314 aw helll no xD 123. sleepyhead314 let's list what we got (tired of scrolling) :P plush toys drawstring bag (perhaps tote bag) school supplies stickers posters stylus pen lanyard what else? 124. UsukiDoll a clock Do Not Disturb Owlfred sign 125. sleepyhead314 more things to carry around to spread the word? 126. UsukiDoll yup 127. sleepyhead314 on https://www.marcopromotionalproducts.com (con, does not support light blue color most of the time) Value Drawstring Sportspack$1.23 each for 100 of them + $40 design fee =$163 can sell for $10/$15 = max profit is about $1300 2-in-1 Stylus Pen$0.57 each for 250 of them + $15 design fee =$157.50 can sell for $3/$5 = max profit is about $1100 ordering more for both would not change the profit or cost ratios by much tbh idk our own shipping fees - how much it costs when shipping to each person individually..??? can we mail the pens in normal envelops? :P 128. Kash_TheSmartGuy @Preetha can you come check this "EMPORIUM EXPANDING" ideas? They are fun and also usable ideas. Credible 129. anonymous Great Ideas! 130. Kash_TheSmartGuy Thanks! You got any? They are highly appreciated. 131. anonymous MacBook Cover for my laptop! hahaha 132. Kash_TheSmartGuy Oh good one. Not hahaha. 133. anonymous maybe bracelets too 134. anonymous Some of these ideas aren't realistic 135. anonymous I would never buy a laptop case merchandise from OS… it's as if they're trying too hard. 136. Kash_TheSmartGuy @sleepyhead314 you've got brilliant ideas! 137. sleepyhead314 we are looking for things that people would be willing to buy but and would promote OpenStudy to new people as well 138. sleepyhead314 stickers are a good idea because you can put it on your phone case, laptop, folders, binders, etc :P 139. Kash_TheSmartGuy Yes, and everyone's ideas seem good. Except for mine *sighs and smashes at keyboard* 140. Kash_TheSmartGuy $$\color{#0cbb34}{\text{Originally Posted by}}$$ @sleepyhead314 let's list what we got (tired of scrolling) :P plush toys drawstring bag (perhaps tote bag) school supplies stickers posters stylus pen lanyard what else? $$\color{#0cbb34}{\text{End of Quote}}$$ That's it. Anything else? 141. sleepyhead314 I got nothing xD next step is to find the cheapest price for bulk ordering ;P 142. UsukiDoll yeah, but like one person mentioned, some of the ideas are unrealistic like the laptop case idea. I think we should conduct a survey to see which item is the most popular and have that produced rather than just be like ok let's bulk order a bunch of stuff and only 1-2 items sell. 143. Kash_TheSmartGuy You mean shipping and manufacturing? 144. Kash_TheSmartGuy Yeah, so when should we make the survey? 145. sleepyhead314 ohhhh that's a good idea! a survey to go around and ask: "From this list, what would you actually buy?" surveys are easy to make with google nowadays >:D 146. Kash_TheSmartGuy Google Surveys - but when?? 147. pooja195 I think plush toys and coffee mugs would sell great. 148. Kash_TheSmartGuy Yeah^^ let's start making the survey! 149. UsukiDoll some users were into the plush items... 150. sleepyhead314 right! mugs! *facedesk* I really need to get some sleep :P 151. pooja195 xD 152. UsukiDoll I think plush dolls are going to be in... that's for sure. 153. Kash_TheSmartGuy BRB, gotta help a user. 154. sleepyhead314 I'll make form brb 155. UsukiDoll but I think posters are out... due to digital signage taking over. 156. UsukiDoll unless the posters are in digital format and can be advertised in massive ipad billboards, then it can survive. 157. sleepyhead314 should we include a possible selling price for the items in the form cuz I know some people won't consider buying anything unless they know a price :-/ 158. Kash_TheSmartGuy Yeah, probably. 159. sleepyhead314 think of normal selling prices then o-o 160. Kash_TheSmartGuy Plush toys-$5 to $15? 161. sleepyhead314$15 they cost about $5 to make let alone shipping costs o-o 162. Kash_TheSmartGuy Then-$30?

lol

164. Kash_TheSmartGuy

@misssunshinexxoxo

"Hey! We are looking to add some cool things to the OpenStudy Emporium (Store)! Could you do this really short survey for us? :3 http://goo.gl/forms/gs3M1N2UOo Thanks! :D"

thanks pooja :) let's try sending it out ^_^

167. pooja195

>:D ME GOT AN IDEA >:)

168. pooja195
169. pooja195

its affordable :P

170. pooja195

just add the few teaks ;)

@pooja195 but it is individually sold and would still cost too much :( I've found some places going as low as $3 each for custom design... I'm just not sure quality 172. pooja195 :/ oh right btw how may responses have we gotten? 173. UsukiDoll if the quality is horrible, then we are in big trouble. 174. Kash_TheSmartGuy Responses in what?? 175. sleepyhead314 but it can't cost too mush either :-/ 176. pooja195 hmmm >.> 177. UsukiDoll I know but if the3 material is felt, I wouldn't want to be charge$20 for it :/ I've been sewing for years.

178. UsukiDoll

and I know it takes long hours just to make one. I've made some plush dolls from the Pretty Cure Anime series, and one of the characters took a month to finish.

make sure to survey guys too...

180. UsukiDoll

the owl from stuffsafari look like brainly's mascot @pooja195

181. pooja195

Well it can be customized :P

182. UsukiDoll

but all I saw in those options is a headband or something?!

183. UsukiDoll

184. UsukiDoll
185. UsukiDoll

for bulk order 2 in 1 stylus pens https://www.discountmugs.com/category/custom-stylus-pens/

186. AG23

phone cases

187. UsukiDoll

that was already mentioned though, and maybe that was placed in the other category in the survey because I haven't seen it. But, we should only consider items that are popular. I already mentioned that producing a bunch of stuff and having 0 sales is a very bad idea.

188. AG23

ok

189. Kash_TheSmartGuy

190. AG23

bookbags?

191. UsukiDoll

yeah....

192. UsukiDoll

193. Kash_TheSmartGuy

Can I get the link and the survey response report?

194. AG23

snacks?

195. UsukiDoll

nah. openstudy is not a food service :P. What next? OwlFred's Berrylicious Blueberry Pancake Mix?

196. AG23

lol

197. AG23

i meant like owl shaped pretzels or gummies lol

198. Kash_TheSmartGuy

nah, that would be too expensive to make and unrequired for a teaching website.

199. UsukiDoll

yeah...OwlFred could be the next Hello Kitty if it expands like that O_O

200. Kash_TheSmartGuy

lolololol

201. AG23

a sports team?

202. UsukiDoll

again too expensive. the main goal for this is to expand the emporium store besides the three items (well one is not even released yet)

203. Kash_TheSmartGuy

Good idea. We can also sell real estate then.

204. Kash_TheSmartGuy

lol^

205. AG23

medal and fan plushes

206. Kash_TheSmartGuy

yeah, that's what we are looking for! @AG23

207. AG23

yay

208. UsukiDoll

well this idea all started when I and a couple of OSers noticed that there were a bunch of ads when you search an old question without being logged in. So, yesterday Preetha responded and said that if everyone subscribed or used QH services, then the ads wouldn't be that much and the site will generate money. Well, I think that since we already have an Emporium which is like a store, why not expand on it so we can sell items that are only available through this site? So by throwing ideas here and there and see which items will be the most popular, it can be added into the store. Right now the subscriptions are like magazines...boring!

209. UsukiDoll

like for $10 a month what can you do besides add a title and having a diamond instead of a circle? If the subscriptions had added benefits and be more fun... 210. AG23 or u could buy being a moderator or being 99 ss lol 211. AG23 mod is 100 dollars a year 212. UsukiDoll blahhhhhhhhhhhhh 213. UsukiDoll what if people who bought mod status power abuse the daylights out of it ? 214. AG23 true 215. AG23 ug 216. AG23 ugh* 217. UsukiDoll like false suspensions or ipbans . A NIGHTMARE! 218. AG23 yea rich kids would buy every year to troll 219. pooja195 Buying modship? LOL, Sorry to break your heart but it aint gonna happen trolls + modship =end of OS as we know it. 220. AG23 ik i got it 221. Kash_TheSmartGuy That's right. We should like give a gift from the emporium to whoever subscribes. That would be fun. You subscribe and we send a litlte gift from the emporium! 222. KyanTheDoodle OpenStudy cereal. 223. AG23 buying medals? 1 dollar each 224. Kash_TheSmartGuy Again- too much cost. and:$$\color{blue}{\text{Originally Posted by}}$$ @Kash_TheSmartGuy nah, that would be too expensive to make and unrequired for a teaching website. $$\color{blue}{\text{End of Quote}}$$ 225. pooja195 Owl shaped marshmellows Openstudy candy bar Owlfred bage 226. UsukiDoll lol no - no medal buying that is like medal partying medal spam and that's against coc OwlFred is not a bakery. 227. UsukiDoll unless it becomes OwFred Bakealicious Doodles as it's bakery name IDK. XD 228. Kash_TheSmartGuy No, @AG23 . Buying medals would result a ss of 100 in a matter of 2 mins. OS wants users to learn not achieve by buying. 229. KyanTheDoodle How relate-able! 230. pooja195 TBh i dont think people will waste money on medals. 231. AG23 i struggle sometimes 232. UsukiDoll Ok. From now on, no suggestions that breaks Code of Conduct or Terms and Conditions. 233. Kash_TheSmartGuy Yes, I agree @UsukiDoll 234. pooja195 100 medals = 100 dollars why not get yourself a kindle or something ? :P 235. Kash_TheSmartGuy lol, yeah 236. pooja195 OOOO MAYBE AN OWLFRED COMIC BOOK :D @KyanTheDoodle 237. UsukiDoll if a talking Owlfred comes, it should NOT sound like Barney. XD 238. KyanTheDoodle Or maybe even a cartoon! I'll work on the storyboards! 239. AG23 openstudy app for android 240. pooja195 omg xD barney is creepy ::P @KyanTheDoodle me want in >:D 241. KyanTheDoodle Hehehehehe!!! 242. AG23 i could really use an app for android 243. UsukiDoll openstudy app for android is under construction and in the development phase I think not sure. as for the comic book, that's a great idea. Maybe the newsletter could add an OwlFred Adventures story to it 244. pooja195 We will :) 245. AG23 a mobile game like five nights at owls 246. KyanTheDoodle Well we'd need more owl characters. 247. AG23 lol jk 248. UsukiDoll yeah it it's the original design, we can add more characters to the OwlFred Family. Have an OwlEmily XD 249. UsukiDoll *if it's 250. AG23 five nights at owls would be a success 251. UsukiDoll sounds like a knockoff 252. pooja195 Owlfed Owlbutler OwlEmily OwlPreetha OwlKyan OwlPasta Owlbrownies Owlbunnies And last but not least (the best one) *drum rolls* $$\huge\rm\color{Purple}{OWLPOOJA}$$ 253. KyanTheDoodle Owlfred and his sister Eerin. (if it's unclear, Eerin means small gray owl) 254. KyanTheDoodle That's cool too! 255. pooja195 x'D 256. AG23 why cant i be an owl am i too a noob 257. KyanTheDoodle Your name is admittedly harder to turn into an owl. 258. AG23 good excuse 259. pooja195 Not an excuse. 260. UsukiDoll Owlneko OwlCat BirdCat BiRdcAT -> brat XD 261. AG23 evil owls 262. pooja195 More ideas Owlfred drums,guitars,etc Owlfred bandannas Owlfred purses Owlfred shoes Owlfred computer keyboard Owlfred sweatshirts Owlfred sweatpants Owlfred skateboards Owlfred collectible figures Owlfred uskidolls Owlfred keychains Owlfred video game <---best seller Owlfred robot Owlfred glasses 263. AG23 way too expensive 264. UsukiDoll problem with my username is that Neopets owns it. Using it for personal use is fine, but don't make a profit off of the name. inb4 lawsuit. 265. AG23 too develop a game is super expensive and too make it look and work good even more 266. pooja195 Owlfred shaped badges |dw:1437022797116:dw| 267. pooja195 O_O 268. KyanTheDoodle It could just be a pixelated game. Like an RPG or something. 269. AG23 owl school? 270. UsukiDoll yeah we wouldn't want to develop a ripoff we don't want to get sued due to copyright infringement. otherwise it's bye bye OS. Original creators of their work don't mess around. 271. pooja195 just ideas guys :P 272. pooja195 Owlfred scarfs Owlfred wall paper ;) 273. AG23 watches 274. UsukiDoll |dw:1437022899233:dw| tbh I want this to be in plush mode 275. pooja195 xD ikr its so cute :3 276. AG23 gold owlfred watches 277. KyanTheDoodle OpenStudy 2048 maybe? 278. AG23 ripoff 279. pooja195 Owlfred stapler Owlfred sharpener Owlfred toothbrushes Owlfred tennis rackets Owlfred basketballs , tennis balls etc 280. KyanTheDoodle Well obviously, I mean just for fun. 281. KyanTheDoodle I'll make one right now. 282. AG23 |dw:1437023060908:dw| 283. Astrophysics Honestly, aside from the merchandise, I think they should put the subscription in the Emporium as well (with more benefits, and different kinds), as it will be easier to access, and instant, rather than going through settings where most people don't even go. 284. AG23 owlfred stamps like the one u put on the iphone button 285. KyanTheDoodle Can anyone link me to that owl site collection someone made? 286. UsukiDoll you mean the one AriPotta made? 287. KyanTheDoodle Yeah that's the one. 288. pooja195 289. pooja195 That? 290. KyanTheDoodle Yes! Thank you. I'll be right back. 291. KyanTheDoodle 292. Zale101 lol @pooja195 i type "OS phone cases" on other. 293. pooja195 294. KyanTheDoodle My gosh! Amazing high score! 295. UsukiDoll 296. UsukiDoll $$\color{blue}{\text{Originally Posted by}}$$ @Astrophysics Honestly, aside from the merchandise, I think they should put the subscription in the Emporium as well (with more benefits, and different kinds), as it will be easier to access, and instant, rather than going through settings where most people don't even go. $$\color{blue}{\text{End of Quote}}$$ GOOD IDEA! That would make it easier to see. 297. Kash_TheSmartGuy Why is everything so quiet? 298. Kash_TheSmartGuy 299. Kash_TheSmartGuy @Preetha what do u think? 300. Kash_TheSmartGuy @Preetha 301. UsukiDoll The results turned quickly when I checked again, but at least we have 50 responses so far. It shows that there are people are interested. But anyway, if we're going to do 2 in 1 stylus pens, I got good news and bad news. The good news is that the website I was using allows "free sample" ordering (yes it is just for one pen) and the ability to customize the pens with the openstudy logo or an owl clip art ...the bad news is shipping is a killer. -_-! 302. KyanTheDoodle A killer? How much of a killer? How much is the shipping and how much can they ship at a time? 303. UsukiDoll if a person wants a free sample pen it's the base price of the pen +$4.00 and that's just a blank.

304. UsukiDoll

@KyanTheDoodle let me recheck the site, but I'm really sure that the price depends on the style of the pen, customization, and shipping. I found some pens that are cheap but shipping depends. Like, shipping is nuts if it goes to where I live.

305. KyanTheDoodle

Oh dear. But WAIT! If supposedly each pen costs 4 dollars, then no issue! We just make the cost of the pens 30 owlbucks in the emporium! That way, the user would be spending 6 dollars, and we get 2 dollars out of it!

306. UsukiDoll

here check this out... this is one of the popular styles https://www.discountmugs.com/product/bp803-plactic-pen-with-screen-touch-stylus/

307. UsukiDoll

for 100 pens $0.67 ea X 100 qty$67.00 Setup Fee:$20.00 Shipping:$27.36 $114.36 total because I live on a rock and not the lower 48 states Now for anyone living in the 48 states Like for example Iowa$0.67 ea X 100 qty $67.00 Setup Fee:$20.00 Shipping:FREE $87.00 total see what I mean @KyanTheDoodle 308. KyanTheDoodle I'm just confused whether or not you have to pay the setup fee each time you want a pen 309. UsukiDoll well that setup fee is for 100 pens, so I'm guessing that's fixed. Even if you increase the # of pens, still a fixed setup fee. 310. KyanTheDoodle Huh. Then I suppose you couldn't just buy one at a time. Honestly, if this idea gets accepted into the emporium, I think the ideal number of pens to order at a time should be 50. Not everyone is willing to buy pens for no reason at all so 100 may be a little too much. 311. UsukiDoll yeah 50 is a good number to start. 312. UsukiDoll ON top of that, boxes should be used to mail those pens as envelopes are too flimsy and based on the material of the pen, it will be damaged in transit. And, we should consider wholesale in America, not from China because China to the US shipping (unless you pay a lot for EMS) is super slow. 313. KyanTheDoodle Yeah! Like those little mini boxes that people keep their collector spoons in. 314. UsukiDoll exactly and yes there are options for 50 pens and that's a good number. It's just that it has to be someone living in the 48 states for orders so they can get free shipping. 315. Kash_TheSmartGuy yes. true. But we need to expand the emporium. Does everyone accept that? 316. jigglypuff314 usukidoll, I'm flying to china right now if u order something from a factory and I'll pick it up and fly it back with me ;) haha jk xD I don't think we can get any of this approved within two weeks >.> 317. UsukiDoll ughhhhhhh........ I have yet to receive my gel polish and temporary metallic tats from China. Hurricane Season has something to do with it I think idk, but I did order those items since the beginning of the month. See how slow that is? 318. UsukiDoll by the way, it seems that Preetha mentioned "little fluffy owls" on the ceo chat, and asnaseer mentioned mugs and shirt. http://openstudy.com/study#/updates/551822ebe4b05708382f64bb @Kash_TheSmartGuy 319. sleepyhead314 would the mug be with the openstudy logo or of owlfred? or openstudy on front and owlfred on back? :P 320. sleepyhead314 @UsukiDoll http://www.qualitylogoproducts.com/ ? 321. Kash_TheSmartGuy 322. Kash_TheSmartGuy @KyanTheDoodle 323. KyanTheDoodle Yes? 324. AG23 each pen should be$5

325. KyanTheDoodle

Or 6! We have to go the highest without going over.

326. AG23

2 pens for 4 dollars

327. KyanTheDoodle

Too cheap!

328. UsukiDoll

I think we should set up a deadline for the poll first and based on the results the top 3 should be considered. Should there be a tie, we'll also put the idea into consideration as well, so for example if Stress Ball and Backpack are tied, we can do both of them just to be fair and not leave one idea out or something like that. Also, this thread is getting too long :P.

329. Kash_TheSmartGuy

Yeah it is! What should I do?

330. UsukiDoll

1. Make a new question 2. spread the survey link around 3. set up a deadline for the survey so we can figure out our top 3 and anything tied will be considered.

I wanna buy my own personal chat room just like Mathematics below and then I'd be the moderator of it and could kick people if I wanted to and appoint other people to have powers to invite others and mod it too, like I could set it public or private. I'd also like to buy to turn off ads. I'd also like to buy special titles that you can't normally get with smart cents. I'd also like to buy my own special pattern or colored fancy border around my image.

332. Kash_TheSmartGuy

Guys, sorry please come on to the new question I make. The deadlines, and other things will be on there.

333. UsukiDoll

that's a good idea. Kash
