    NetBuilders Best Post Contest!

    I am proud to announce NetBuilder's first contest!

    I am also nervous to announce our first contest, as the number and variety of things that could go sideways appears daunting.

    This contest will not be about the number of posts, as the last thing we want is a high volume of low-quality posts.

    Instead, this will be a competition to create the best post.

    The contest will run from right now until 12:00 Noon on January 20th, as measured in Greenwich, England.

    Prizes will be as follows:

    • 1st Place: $100
    • 2nd Place: $50
    • 3rd Place: $25

    Prizes will be awarded via PayPal.

    Posts will be judged by the NetBuilders moderators -- who are not eligible to participate . (Sorry guys! )

    Posts will be judged based on criteria such as:

    • Usefulness
    • Comprehensiveness
    • Accuracy
    • Originality
    • Spelling, grammar, and readability

    Post which start new threads will obviously have an advantage, but a very helpful and comprehensive response to another members post could easily win also!

    Posts in the General Chat forums will have a very difficult time winning.

    Let the games begin!

    My vote'll go to the person that donates the most funds directly to my PayPal account and says they have done so.

    Good idea. This will increase the amount of quality post around here for a while. Although the prizes seem to be high (just my opinion ), I know someone's going to hate me for saying this.

    Only way I can win is to split the winnings with the judges 10% for me and 90% for the judges to fight over

    You've already posted some very commendable contributions. I'm sure that there are plenty of NetBuilder's that would agree with me.

    Thanked 60 Times in 30 Posts is a pretty good indicator.

    Just a question. Can I post about this contest on my personal blog? Am I allowed to?
