July 2019 Posting Contest -- Win Two $25 Amazon Gift Cards!

Post by gali » 30 Jun 2019, 23:24

Another two prizes are up for grabs!

Prize 1-- The author of the topic in the July Book of the Month Discussion Forum that gets the most unique replies by the end of July wins a $25 Amazon.com Gift Card. :D

Prize 2-- Whoever posts the most combined replies in July on other people's topics overall in the July Book of the Month Discussion Forum wins a $25 Amazon.com Gift Card.

The July Book of the Month is Defining Moments of a Free Man from a Black Stream by Dr Frank L Douglas.

Very short topics and posts will not be counted. Off-topic or meaningless or 'fluffy' posts will be deleted by the moderators.

For Prize 1, "unique replies" means replies by different people, not the same person. So, for example, if one person posts four replies on one of your topics, that counts as only one.

Topics must actually be about the book. Overly general discussion topics or topics not really about the book will NOT be approved and will not counted towards the contest.

You need to read the book to open discussion topics.

Scott is not eligible to win (since it's his own contest).

You can check the current results anytime on the Cool Stats Page.

If you have any questions let me know.

Remember, it's meant to be fun! :D

* You need to read the book to open new threads

Thank you!

If a moderator or admin wins either gift card, then Scott will send that person their prize, but he will also send the prize to the next non-moderator/non-admin in line. This way no member can get bumped from getting a prize by a moderator or admin. The reason for this is that he has asked the moderators to be sure to move or delete off-topic threads and posts, so this will make sure the moderators can be strict without it potentially seeming unfair.

This book sounds like a good read for those who are interested in books like this one. I like how it tells of a man who struggles to gain independence and manages to control his own future and develop drugs that go on to fight diabetes, cancer and seizures. Dr. Frank. L. Douglas also manages to survive racism from Caucasian people and cultural prejudice from African Americans.

Amazing book about growing black man among people who don’t respect and value the others for their achievements. Surroundings see only the colour of his skin and they make conclusions only on an appearance. The main character is black. And he does his best to prove everyone, that the colour of skin is not important. It’s a very inspiring book. After reading it, you will want to do something, improve your live. You will look at your live by a new glance. I advise you to read this incredible book!
