CONTEST, CONTEST, CONTEST


Further to my earlier post regarding the sponsor of a contest with two copies of Mr. Bryant’s Best Seller book, “The Modern Goldseekers Manual” as the prizes, the contest is officially open as of midnight tonight (August 10, 2010).  This contest will end at midnight, August 31, 2010, and prizes will be awarded for member activity.  ‘Activity’ is to be construed as meaning active within postings, not simply leaving one’s connection to the Forum idly open.   Usernames used in generating posts is that which will be counted, but there must be substance to the post.  One-liners and menial comments will not be eligible for the count.

As further mentioned, do not permit the contest to delay your order and enjoyment of the book, for if you are a winner, you will be reimbursed the full cost paid for the book and its shipping.  A scanned copy of the Invoice is all which would be needed.


More and More Contests

Also stay tuned and active for a further Contest regarding Mr. Bryant’s book.  This will be a three month long contest and based on clues found only within The Modern Goldseekers Manual.  The prize will be ‘exceptionally nice’ - - and just in time for Christmas.  This contest will commence at midnight, September 15th, 2010.

All the more reason to pick up the book rather than wait.  For those not familiar with the book's price, I assure you it is most reasonable and affordable by all.  The prize will be announced when the contest is posted.

But he with a chuckle replied
That maybe it couldn't but he wouldn't be one
Who'd say so until he had tried.

Is this by chance a members book? I'm pretty sure I remember reading that. I want to say GMS, but I'd hate to look like a moron. (See what I did there? Clever eh) ;) LOL

I'm gonna post my butt off :P

Contest Guidelines Update

I can see that for me, the criteria I’d set for this Contest could literally prove a total nightmare, in trying to keep tabs on the number of posts each and every member is making.  So I am going to ask that all posting participants (every person making a post during this Contest period, who feels they may be in the running for one of the prizes) keeps track of the number of posts they’ve made.  And within the two-day period following the end of the contest (between midnight August 31st and midnight September 2nd), that they email me with their count.  This way, I would then need to only crosscheck a more limited number posts for ascertaining the winners.

Again, posts which count, are those appearing onsite between 0001 hours August 11th (1 second after midnight Aug 10th) and midnight August 31st.

Please keep in mind, that menial posts, such as the most basic form of idle chatter, will be exempt from the count.  Nonetheless, one-liners can also say a lot.  The primary objective of this Contest is, to generate the conveyance, query and discussion (with dialog) of topics and information useful to prospectors as a whole.

Excluded from the running, are Dave and I, of course.  And being as Tom himself (GMS), is the Author of such jewel, I think I am going to exclude his posts too.

Thanks for your understanding and cooperation, folks.

Larry

Doesn't matter whether you've won something before, or not, Greywolf.... 'tis open to all persons who post, except the named three.  And there's no signing in required, so to speak, it's based on all posts appearing within the many forum extentions here.  If you already have Tom's book, another would make a fine Christams gift for someone you know more personally.  So post away, everything counts and I see no reason why you should be excluded.

regards,

Your contests are awesome Larry =)

This is actually encouraging me to want to post more & be a part of the forum.

I use to actually just kind of read everything and not leave a reply, or put in my two cents. I think I've been registered for nearly a year or so?!

I honestly enjoy being a part of this forum & the amount of information I'm taking in is great.

Congrats, all !

Subject to an additive in criteria which I set down after assigning the contest, I'd asked that each contender send his or her count of their own posts..... this is now not needed, as Dave with all his computer wizzardry was so kind to help me out with the count.  All I need is full name and mailing addresses.

thanks to all....
Larry
