I've gotten some e-mails over the past few weeks asking if I was ever going to open up a set of forums here on Hey, It's Free!, so I decided it was probably a good time to get my act together and see if I couldn't get some put together. I'm still learning all the nooks and crannies of the forum software, but I've got enough put together to go ahead and launch the newest section of HIF!
My vision for the forums is that they will help HIF! grow and expand. I'll still accept freebie submissions through the contact link over on the right, but I also hope that people (including myself!) will post freebies they find on the forums! So in theory, there will be even more freebies to be found in there and then I'll take the cream of the crop and stick them here on the front page for those of you who aren't participating in the forum fun. In the very soon future, people will get “points” for posting freebies, which can then be redeemed for prizes / privileges (ie, a cheaper prize = you'll be able to change the rank under your name. A bigger prize = me sending you something in the mail, etc.) I'm in contact with a few companies who are discussing sending out special freebies to me to give out, so I might tie those in or something if things work out. As you can see, the possibilities are seemingly endless!
As of now, there are two members. Goob (me) and John (the test dummy I used to see if things were working). By the end of today we better not still be the only members! Soand start posting!
