Announcement of Posting and Recruiting Contest
« on: October 29, 2011, 03:45:30 PM »
Dear Politirant Members,

Our founders have decided to create a contest in an effort to increase membership and participation. We value your input and suggestions as to how best to make this happen. We are considering the following:

- The contest would run from now until Dec 31st, 2010
- The contest would be open to new members, current members, and VIPs as well.
- A formula would be developed based on number of posts, thank yous, karma, recruited members, and other factors.
- Points earned by members would result in lottery tickets.
- A random lottery draw would be held.
- The winner would receive a $100 Visa / Mastercard Gift Card.

Please chime in with your thoughts and suggestions in this thread and thank you for your continued participation on Politirant!

Conley may already have this in the bag but we'll see.  ;)

Woah! Yes, you are all my bitchez.  :D 8)

To be fair it probably should start with everyone at zero. Maybe a bonus for the VIP members though? Interesting idea.

Actually maybe it would be good to recognize the people who have put so much in to get this place started? Dunno.

I don't know seems it would be between CL, D and Myself if one was to go by all that was stated. Even with the new members we have they do not post up that much. Plus Cap already said he wouldnt be round as much until he gets sitauted.

 >:( Well if idea is to encourage participation and all that we can start from scratch. Plus I would guess that bringing new people on would count for more than just posting  :D :D :D which you may have noticed I do a lot  ;D
