    Default Under $Limit

    How about a section for low-budget animated lighting section? Or perhaps a yearly contest for low-budget props? Sort of like the yearly contest in hauntforum.com for Halloween props. It strikes me that the low-budget displays are scattered throughout the forum and may be hard to find.

    Just a random thought...

    I like the idea for both beginners and expert users alike. "Making more with less" is at the very core of what DIY is all about.

    I agree! This would make a great addition. This is why I looked for DIY controller ideas years ago!

    I have watched the Hauntforum contests very closely in years past. I would welcome such a contest here at DIYC. Lets get some input on how to run it.
    Thanks,
    Brian, your friendly site Admin.
