August Posting Contest -- Win Two $25 Amazon Gift Cards!

Post by gali » 31 Jul 2018, 23:47

Another two prizes are up for grabs!

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

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

The August Book of the Month is World, Incorporated by Tom Gariffo.

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.

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

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.
In the case of good books, the point is not to see how many of them you can get through, but rather how many can get through to you." (Mortimer J. Adler)
