Post MBN \ LBA stuff

Coming soon to a store near you:
MBN \ LBA stuff I'm going to create a online store where you can buy MBN and LBA stuff (tshirts, mousepads, coffee mugs, baseballcaps)
I'm working on the designs now. The price of these items are the base prices charged by the company plus +- %10 . This extra 10% you pay will be used to improve\keep MBN (yes, it does cost money to run this site).
This way you can support MBN and get cool LBA stuff.

note: none of the money collected will be used for other things than the MBN

Cool idea...but why now?
Has the cost increased or something?

But it is a good idea in general..

Well, there are very much Dutch Users (I thought) so I hope they could just give money via the bank. That's solved for the Dutch ones who don't have a Creditcard (like me). I hope El would do it that way. Maybe also the English people (but I thought there was a banking fee, maybe not with the Euro, though). I know England doesn't have the Euro, but like Belgium, Sweden, Denmark etc. would have paid no banking fee (I guess, don't know that for sure). But like the Australian people (Kieron for example) or the Saudi's (kaderoboy, Axx) it will be much harder.

A good plan El. If you need any help with designs and so forth, I'm willing to lend a hand.

I would have thought the younger people, with no credit cards, could perhaps use their parents?

There are also other ways to order... I. E. the old fashioned air mail way.

My parents don't have a creditcard as well... but I hope I can do it by bank.

I can help with designs too, if it's neccesary.

Just wondering... El, did you get permission from Adeline to use LBA-related prints, or do you just have to put "© Adeline" on it? Would be sad if they sued you...

I once dreamt I'm in an LBA store filled with LBA stuff, my dream can come true!

...but are you sure it's legal? like wacko said, would be sad if they'll sue you...

Yes, Funimation did it, too I'm sure you guys know about the BFP story.

The site providing this service is ww.cafepress.com they acces credtiscards, checks and money orders.

For dutch people I might be able to pay the product for them if they transfer money to me.

Darkflame: MBN needs money to keep it up, the forum isn't free. The domain name isn't free either. And I also want to expand.

The shop's location is: http://www.cafepress.com/MBN
(note, do not order yet, it's just a test shop)

Well I haven't checked with that yet, and I don't know how I could ever do that at this time, there's no Adeline. So untill I don't hear anything from then it should be ok.

And original art is always ok. Stuff made by you guys it copyrighted by you, not adeline.

ChoasFish: yeah, I took over his license.. He didn't need the forum anymore, and still had a few months left. But when that's over i have to start and pay for it.
Uhm.. don't know about the private message

Yep, but it might be that the words "Little Big Adventure" or Twinsen are copyright/trademark/registered/etc. I'd double check it if I were you... it's even "worse" because you're making money of it (for the site, okay, but that doesn't matter).

I'd love to see this shop, great way to make money for a site, but better be sure about the copyrights.

Yes, Funimation sold the rights to make a dbz game to infrogrames. BFP was a GREAT mod for Q3 and they received a cease and desist order from Funi. More details at http://www.bidforpower.com (Check the screenshots on the main page)

as far i know, it wasn´t really an order "do this or i´ll kill this" was more like an advice, ("you don´t have any chance to do it")because Bird of the Power wasn´t getting any agreedment with Infogrames.
-
i didn´t like the idea of a lba store... I understand that the forum isn´t free, but (even with a few decrease of quality) some free services like YaBB can be almost good as our loved forum, and there are lot of free servers. What enterprise will do the products though?
