Talking App for Angry Keystone Owners

So, here is a few of my thoughts. I have sent this to one moderator and member, so it is a "tested product".

As many of the Forum members know, every now and then we have "single time visitors" who feel the need to vent their frustrations of RV ownership upon us, the members of the Forum. Personally, I believe that everyone here on the Forum would be more than willing to help anyone, including the "single time visitor" with their problems. We have enough of a group that someone has probably "seen that" before. But, to that "single time visitor", the purpose does not seem to be seeking help, but to vent their anger and frustration. But! I have a plan!

So, we make a separate subject classification on the Forum and label it “If Dissatisfied With Keystone, Visit Here First!”. We create an app (iPhone, iPad, iPod, Droid) named “Angry KeystoneRVers”. In this app, there will be various Keystone models which can be launched from a slingshot towards a defensive target. Now, just like “Angry Birds”, these different Keystone models will carry different explosive powers and flight characteristics. OK, the defense (or defence) structures are comprised of signs of various Keystone dealers across the country who might have “customer grievances”. And interspersed within the defences (or defenses) are head-shot pictures of sales people who have questionable sales practices beneath their belt. So, points are made as these Keystone models are launched against the towering defenses that collapse upon the heads of the “disliked” sales people! This will give the frustrated "single time visitor" the chance to work through his/her anger.

Here, we explain the “Angry KeystoneRVers” app and offer a download for the app at that entry point. After 5 “free” plays, we have a pop-up that comes up and notifies the user that US$3.99 is due to continue playing the app. We charge for this app and give no “high point prizes” . . . just like “Angry Birds”! With all the money we make, we will all retire and travel North America in convoy to visit RV shows to promote our app!

Now, of course, there are copyright negotiations - don't want to have a violation, and some SMOP costs (Simple Matter Of Programming). But we have a talented group here! Waddaya say?!?!?!?

geo, Howdy;

When utilizing someone's likeness there ARE privacy issues and
then there are release forms to be kept on file ... to prevent the
nucence law suite ect.....

A better approach would be to have a Venting forum and have vBulletin auto-delete posts older than a week (maybe less). One-hit wonders will visit, rant, leave, then not know their post disappeared. Make the forum visible *only* to newbie-level users and most of the rest of us will never know they visited. Like a tree falling in an uninhabited forest.

Now, you-all know I was just being funny. My DW says playing "Angry Birds" is life's time you will never get back. Actually, I thought it was pretty funny when our granddaughter was trying to teach her how to play. The whole comedy of it was time well spent ... at least for me!

Well ron i still think this would be fun! I know there are all those privacy laws etc. but ah what the heck it is easier to beg for forgiveness then ask permission. my wife uses angry birds in her classroom (she is a middle school spanish and french teacher) it is nice to have a good sence of humor!
