Hey guys,

We are starting a new contest. Here is how it works:
  • Starts October 1st 2010
  • Ends October 31st 2010
  • Level playing field: only posts made during date period are counted
  • Object is to have the most Thanks Received count during period
  • Helpful posts -> Users click "Thanks" button, goal is to have the most Thanks Received
  • Anyone can win except for me

That covers the basics. Again, the idea is that for every helpful post you write on the forum, other users will use the "Thanks" button. The more "Thanks" you receive, the more likely you are to win the contest. So, you will want to focus on writing not just quantity but quality content. Users in turn will thank the most helpful posts.

Posts made prior to the period are excluded, so even if you've never posted before, you have the same chance to win as everyone else.

You will be able to track your progress as well as the progress of the Top Ten scoreboard in real time. I will provide a URL for this on October 1st (the URL goes live at that point, so I can't post it now). The scoreboard will show how many Thanks Received for each of the Top Ten members and their position.

I will evaluate how this contest goes and decide how often we'll repeat this type of contest. For this contest, I am giving away five prizes:
  • 1st prize: Asus 24" 1080p LCD monitor
  • 2nd prize: $100 gift card
  • 3rd prize: $50 gift card
  • 4th prize: $25 gift card
  • 5th prize: $25 gift card

The gift cards are your choice of NewEgg or Amazon. For the monitor, I will pay shipping within the continental United States. You will be responsible for shipping outside that. If you wish to make a substitution, I will consider it. All decisions made by futures.io (formerly BMT) will be final.

I welcome feedback.

Mike

I just wanted to write out a "thanks" for this contest...

While it's unlikely I would ever post enough to win such a contest - besides being a natural-born lurker I am quite the neophyte (I'm still learning & working on my plan and haven't traded, yet) - it's a nice incentive/reward for all of the great posts I've seen here (and expect to continue seeing).

...1st prize: Asus 24" 1080p LCD monitor...

Very nice. New monitor, about $250.00. Not having to explain to your wife that it's a trading investment and not another toy, priceless. ;-)

On a side note, there is a small problem with the real-time stats right now. It's being worked on and will be fixed soon.
