I have been toying with the idea to run a competition to attract new members to my forum. Seems like a shame to have a shiney new forum sitting there with no one on it after all :)
So the idea (borrowed from one I saw on another forum - I have no idea if it worked for them or not):
The next 10 people (maybe more, just want to see how it goes) who reach 250 posts in this forum will be given $25 via PayPal. (PayPal ONLY)
To qualify you have to have 250 posts, and of that 250 30 need to be new threads that you started.
You can welcome new members, but welcoming members that joined before you or simply "spamming" the introductions section of the forum will exclude you from the payout.
I reserve the right to not pay anyone for any reason (in case some less than reputable people try and scam the system).
When you hit 250 & have your 30 threads simply send me a PM letting me know you made it. I'll verify, and send you your payment within 72 hours.
(limited to one payout per person - ie you can't join 10 times and get paid for each account)
See you in the forums!
What do you think? Suggestions or comments appreciated.
