Founding members, we need your help

we have to come to our first dilemma at rhinotalk and seeing as this place is for the members, we pose a question to you to help us solve it.
we have vendors who want to post banner ads, we also have vendors who have there logo as avatars. if we charge someone to put up a banner ad, they are going to get offended by the other guy with the free avatar.
we don't want to just say, sorry no more avatars. We don't want to become another naziforum, we are charging low rates for banners and will use the money for upkeep and giveaways,events. whatever supports the site.
give us your suggestions on how to handle this and we will go with the majority.
thanks and eff max powers

As long as the vendors know that they will have competition from within the site. Avatars opionions loyalties what have you they have been informed.

If they still want to pay for advertising they have been pre warned.
The paying vendors will still get to the people they want and need, the site mods just wont bend over for them.

"This is a member site not a vendor site"

You can put it together better than me, but you get my idea I hope.

I thought if everybody could post up whatever they want was the only way to keep it un-bias logos links pictures what ever... then if somebody like me still sees a value here Ill pay for ads, forums, ect but otherwise your just like the other forums....whats the point

I Agree with hapa....
"This is a member site not a vendor site"
Let free enterprise roll.
I check out all vendors to see who has the best price at the moment anyway. It also depends who is closer to me...with the price of gas that's an issue too.

Shouldn’t be too hard to figure this out, after all you are talking apples and oranges here.

Banners are just that a banner; much different then an avatar.

Want a Banner then ya got to pay the piper, want an avatar cool they are free (at the moment).

I say let it be for right now. We the people are who makes the site, we the people are who spend the money, we the people are who can make or break a business. I believe if a vender starts to get a lot business from a specific site he will make it right in the long run. For instance I give people 1/2 off thier gardening bill if I get a refferal and keep them as a "paying" customer for over 6 months. If I get a house or job that pays really well, i'll give the person reffering the whole month.

Has a potiental vendor brought this up????. If the forum has the numbers Vendors will want to pay to have a banner or thread..After all its because of us they are all at commieforums....Personally...I think it would be nice to have a vendor or two......But I think it is unecessary to have as many as commieforums....my 2 cents
