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

Post by gali » 01 Oct 2018, 00:31

Another two prizes are up for grabs!

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

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

The October Book of the Month is McDowell by William H. Coles.

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.

Oh exciting! I read the sample and have this book in my queue to review. I can’t wait to dive in as it looks very engrossing. That McDowell character seems like a real piece of work!
