I just deleted a large number of invalid posts.
Please remember that we have over 600 active members here. Every post you make is read by hundreds of people -- make them worth reading.
If you cannot take the time to use proper capitalization, punctuation, spelling, and grammar -- then please do not post.
i just deleted another thirty posts 4 being off-topic written in all lowercase without punctuation with bad spelling and with bad grammar

Will, I must say you are working very hard for NB.
This would be right base for NB.
Good luck :)
The meaning of this contest is not to win it, but to get more active members on the forum. Please do not add this to 'paid to signup' programs, or don't ask your friends to join this forum, make 10 posts and leave.
Just refer people you think that will stay here and make the forum better.
Or you can refer people and they're not interested after all so they have 0 posts, or you refer people and they're really here to enjoy it and they have dozens of posts. I don't care which case it is with you, but if you just refer people to make sure they post 10 posts and than they leave than better don't refer those people ;)
wow..i love contests..will take part too
Due to the enormous problems this contest has caused, I have made the decision to end this contest early -- and with a bit of a twist.
I did not write the contest rules well enough. I thought that this would be clear enough:
- Spammy "me too" posts will not be counted.
I could not have been more wrong.
Contest participants simply hired paid posters with offers like this one.
Though not specifically disallowed, it certainly violates the spirit of the rules.
What To Do
We can't, in good conscience, cancel the contest and not award prizes.
We can't, in good conscience, eject people from the contest for violating the spirit of the rules.
But it would also be bad to punish the honest competitors by rewarding the prizes they have earned to their opponents.
So... it looks like we're going to have two sets of winners!
Good decision Will :D
Congratulations to all prize winners.
Congratz to the winners! ;)
