    Maybe a good half a dozen calendars with different cars would of been the answer to allow more members to show? I wonder if admin's cars will be on the calendar for the third year in a row?

    Well, we couldn't have had half a dozen different calendars for starters as we haven't had the submissions to do that. We'd need 72 submissions to have six different calendars with a month per car. If we'd gone for that method - different calendars - we would have only just managed three different calendars, given the number of submissions we had. That's based on the assumption that every submission would be up to being reproduced in print - which not all were. I don't mean by being a good photograph etc., I simply mean of a big enough file size to print properly. Some that were sent in were simply much, much smaller than the size that had been requested and would never reproduce in print.

    Then you have the problem of dealing with orders of, say, three different types of calendars. We've had orders of around 50 calendars - that's both from people who've submitted pics and those who haven't i.e. they simply want a calendar knowing fine well their car isn't in it as they didn't submit a pic. Now spread those orders over three calendars, or six as you were suggesting, and the number of each calendar that sells is reduced, so we therefore can't have a larger order of one calendar and negotiate a discount for a bulk order. As an example - 50 orders over three calendars is around 16 of each calendar, with six calendars it's down to around 8 per calendar. No supplier is going to offer any significant discount when there's only that many of each one being sold - especially when they're doing a lot more work to produce 3 or 6 different calendars. So with no discount on the calendars, we'd have to then pass that onto the members and the calendar price would jump up - possibly past an amount that folk might be willing to pay. £11, I think, is a figure that people are happy to pay for a calendar. It'd be over £15 if we only had a few of each calendar selling.

    Plus there's all the extra work involved in sorting out the pics for all the different calendars. It takes enough time to sort out the pics and everything else for one calendar, never mind for three or more.

    That's obviously aimed at me - a little dig it would seem (regardless of the smiley on the end before you refer to it) - given that Graeme didn't have a pic in last year's calendar. Just say, speaking hypothetically and for sake of argument, that my car is in this upcoming calendar - what of it? What exactly has it got to do with you if it is? If it is in again, would anyone begrudge me having my car in the calendar? - given all the time and work I put into the club and forum?, and it obviously goes without saying that it would be up to it in terms of quality of pic.

    Given that this thread was originally a question by Glynn asking about when people find out who's in the calendar, you've seen fit to try and turn a thread into something completely different - yet again. Well it ain't gonna work.
