I am beginning to see MDX's all over the parking lots and was thinking what a neat idea it would be to keep a little slip of paper in your wallet, pocket, purse and stick it under their windshield wiper. Something like:

HI! YOU'VE JUST BEEN "ORGED" by a fellow MDX'er. Visit http://www.ACURAMDX.ORG for great accessory discounts and other MDX owner trivia!!

This would be super simple for each of us to print up a few strips of paper. Think of the potential impact our thoughts and ideas would have on ACURA with several thousand more members?!!

Seems like such a waste to walk by a potential member?? Who was that masked man?? :cool: :cool:

Sounds Like Fun to Me

Great Idea DMor, I'm going to print some out this morning and go looking for my first "victim".



PS: By the by, did I tell you that there is a small logo size Thud Raider.

Orged Card...

Hey RR:

If you could post your "org'ed card" on the site we could all copy and print it. Knowing your prowess with graphic design, I know it would be great!

Watch This Space

Hey PhillyFlyer,
As a matter of fact I was going to work on that very thing today (as day job permits). I'll post any results here ASAP.

Hey Roadrunner - Any copyright restrictions on this sample? I mean that question from two perspectives. In this case, it is a picture of a manfacturer's product, and is also probably a trademark, and do you mind if we print it a place it on every MDX we encounter on foot?

PS - I just tried to view it and look at whether it's "camera-ready". Is there any chance of seeing a better res version?

SS, why am I not surprised

Hey RR,

I noticed that the orged card is in SS. I like the idea of spreading the word about our site, but I hope not to offend anybody by placing a SS card on their NB or GG. Imagine how the remery's tootsie roll would feel.

Great idea DMor.

Now Be Fair - I Did Offer

Now be fair MDXNole, I did of course use SS because it is the best looking color ;) BUT I did offer to personalize it for anyone and that includes a picture of your MDX (if supplied by you) and your logo - if you have one.
Steve, you're probably right about copyright. I will modify the art work to make sure there are no lawyers out there looking for work. Nothing I do for this group is ever copyrighted by me.

Actually in your defense RR, I noticed in the MDX brochure, the last picture that shows the entire Acura line, all the vehicles were in silver. I'm sure Acura spent big bucks researching the color that would look best in marketing hand outs, and since this is a marketing tool for this website, silver is as good a color as any other.

...anyone who is NOT aware that Silver is the superior color :D

Yeah for a milk truck, a blimp, or a Confederate uniform but not a MDX. Glad you made a color neutral version for the more discriminating public!:D:D:D

NEW IMPROVED VERSION ON ITS WAY

Steve Mitchell very wisely brought up the issue of copyright and given the momentum of this idea, it seemed a good idea to make sure before we start sticking these under the wipers of an unsuspecting public. I contacted Admin who graciously agreed to the use of the acuramdx.org logo and has sent me a higher quality version to use. I am also planning to substitute a copyright free MDX image. As soon as all this is in place I will post the new approved and improved version. Thanks for all the interest and thanks to you DMor for a GREAT idea.



PS: OK OK - against my better judgment, the final version will be offered in a choice of colors :D

Are we being all 'official-like'??

Well then...You have been Orged must have $$$ value...RIGHT??

I have been advised by council to determine the intellectual property value of “You have been Orged”. We have also applied for patent and copyright protection. As such, once a Certified Valuation Analysis (CVA) determines the intellectual value we will advise of the appropriate royalty. Also, should this become an Initial Public Offering, we will advise of warrants and options position.

Please send $ so I can pay for Atty fees and IMPLANTS as seen below. . All contributors will receive YHBO stock options...but that's all. :D:D

New Version

A new improved version of the "you've been orged" card is now available in the Gallery Forum.
http://www.acuramdx.org/forums/showthread.php?threadid=2386&pagenumber=2
This version is completely copyright cleared and truly reflects that unique acuramdx.org look and feel.It is also completely free of any "color" bias.

Download a copy, print it out and go forth and ORG somebody:D

Credit??

Did you guys put your username on the back of the card? Don't you get points for referrals and this way would also let you know who signed on because of the card. I'm kinda late, but it was a great idea.

Only if I meet the person and hand them a card. If I leave it on the car, no.
