    While we have over 50,000 members that doesn't mean they are active members. Many of them may have joined while surfing the web they may have visited a few times and never came back. When i wrote this post there were 1306 people on-line on Lottery Post. your idea sounds good --- might look good, but may not be feasible. A person cannot operate an independent lottery.  A person might be able to operate a charitable organization or form a foundation.  Both of which might have to be governed buy federal and state laws rules and regulations.

    I Agree!, it really depends on how many active members and that number is probably under 1000. I doubt there would be $50,000 put into the fund and with such a broad distribution suggestion "Money that we can use for important stuff or stuff we need, like an Emergency Fund, each year there will be 250,000 in a fund that we [LP community] can use for emergencies or other stuff, think about it as or LP own Bank.", it would certainly be a huge responsibilty on the person running it.

      This is an idea that occured to me 3 years ago but remind me when i saw totallydavis post about a National LOtto...I don't know if is a good idea...Again i don't know if is a good idea, but i will say that is better than winning the lottery...Posted it here so that every member have a saying on it...I don't think anybody has thought about it...

      Look you all the fact is that most of us will not win the lottery with stagerring odds...There are LP members that have trouble moving forward or have come across some troubles economically...They weren't asking for it...There are LP member who maybe perhaps have lost their jobs and his/her wife as cancer and that LP member only makes or used to make 20,000 a year....Situations depend...Think of it as LP Community own Charity, except that is not actually a charity is more of a Raffle Charity kind of thing...

      And i thought, well there are 50,000 members here and i thought, why not every year the 50,000 member each put in 10 dollars or 20 dollars...Again each year...50,000 x 10 dollars equal: 500,000 and giving as 50,000 dollars that will make 10 winners...So i thought why not select 10 LP winners or 20 LP winners each year in december, LP members who are in dire circumstances and let the 10 LP winners each win 50,000 dollars...But no same LP winner can win twice for giving room for other LP winner is worse situations...And one contract the LP member in dire circumstances that win must sign a contract saying that after he wins he is going to join LP membership forever, like been a gold membership forever...Think of it as a community helping its own people, helping the weakest link of its community...And more now that the economy is worse...Tell me how much will it hurt you to spend 10 dollars a year, how many times have you taken 10 dollars and dump it in the trash [symbollically]...Literally this is ridiculous money that is asking of, 10 dollars a year...

      If only this was a community of hackers...You know Hollywood should do this also...Deep inside something tells me that Hollywood does it too...The Church does it...We need to take advantage of numbers, there is power in numbers...

      Another alternative is: Or something else we could do is we each put 20 dollars every year place the money in the bank and in 5 years we will have 5 million dollars...Then take those 5 million dollars place it in the bank and let the interest at 5%  give us 250,000 each year....Money that we can use for important stuff or stuff we need, like an Emergency Fund, each year there will be 250,000 in a fund that we [LP community] can use for emergencies or other stuff, think about it as or LP own Bank...Again this is taking advantage of the power of numbers...That's better than winning the lottery....

      I don't know if is a great idea, but please i'll like all LP members to weigh in on this...

      "I don't know if is a great idea, but please i'll like all LP members to weigh in on this..."

      You could simple start a "yes or no" poll asking if people would be interested in contributing to get a good idea of how many members would be involved.
