Sock Puppet Coin

69 posts in this topic

This is NOT a statement toward anyone. Just my attempt into the world of trying to be humorous!

 

While not limited to just forums, sock puppet accounts are a way of life in the world of cyberspace.

 

Below is the coin to commemorate this not-so-great achivement of creating a fake persona to hide when you don't want to tarnish your real account name!

Made in Platinum, Sterling Silver, 24 Karat Gold, and a very limited number of Crystal (for those rare few that prefer to be seen through their alternate persona).

 

:P<_<:P

EDIT: SEE POST BELOW - THIS MAY NOT BE JUST A JOKE AFTER ALL. LET ME HEAR YOUR VOICE

Hmmmm... <_<

 

Already recieved a couple of emails asking if we're gonna make them :P

 

So... let's hear your opinions.

 

If the price is reasonable, and they are made in realistic metals, would you buy?

 

This just might be a reality after all, if the demand is there. :P

So if we are not interested in scratching our name on the coin can we order Tungsten?

I didn't think a disclaimer was needed when offending a Virtual Persona. :P

 

Shouldn't there be a pre-order requirement of actually having a sock puppet account? I'm interested in a Virtual one. :P

 

(I now see that people ARE taking this seriously. <_< )

Thanks for the laugh.

The front is cute, but good luck selling 500 to get the icon. They would have to be dirt cheap if the backside is blank in order for me to buy any.

Ditto. I'd get 3, depending on price.

No, I wouldn't want a blank backed coin either. B)

 

If we make them, some ideas for the back would be to probably have the tracking number info, maybe the GC logo, the outline of a hand, ??? :P ... , and then a space for "name scratching". <_<

 

D-man :P

Just had a thought...

I also design a little bit for a local trophy shop.

I bet if you took these to one near you, or a jewelry store that does engraving, they could easily engrave your name in them for you :P

 

D-man :P

I think it would be funnier if you left the back to say what is shown in the picture. You can still engrave a name there too.

I'd like one of these after you work out the details.

If I had one, I'd probably have "AKA The Dream Cachers" engraved on the back.

Your coin makes me smile!

The back could include the phrase "Burning through the forums..." lol!

 

Seriously, develop a backside (did I just say that? <_<) and make the price reasonable and I'll bite.

 

(Actually, it's dern cute.)

Why I would leave it blank where the name goes.....after all it is suppose to be a sock puppet.

 

Great idea.

It's a great idea and we'd love to get some! If you left the back blank for us to scratch on, the price could stay lower, too! I think we might get a whole new crowd of puppet accounts out of this though <_<

But every Sock Puppet has a real person behind it! <_<

 

Hence your "real name" on the back.(Think "behind the sock") :P

If you do make the coin, I say trim the extra material around the sock puppet and put all the tracking info and such on the back. That way the coin is just a sock puppet on the front.

Have you thought about making them biodegradable ?, Sock Puppets tend not to hang around for too long.
