The Admin Forum's Grand Opening Posting Contest

I'm glad to say that our opening week was a huge success! We already have a community full of kind and informative people, and it can only improve. To help increase our activity more, and help reward the members that make this forum possible, I am hosting a posting contest!

The rules are simple: post! Starting on July 1st, all threads will be worth 4 points and replies will be worth 2 points. The contest will continue until July 15th, when I will disable the point counter. Throughout the entire contest, you will be able to view your progress on our leaderboard.


What kind of contest would this be without prizes? I'm proud to say that we had two great sponsors to help us out in this contest. MyBBWebHost, who is offering almost 2 years worth of hosting to our members, and eXtremepixels, who is offering a free premade skin to the first place winner.

eXtremepixels is one the most trusted sources for professional forum designs for vBulletin and Invision Power Board. All skins are of the highest quality, fully compatible in all browsers and tested on PCs and Macs. In addition, all forum skins come with layered .psd files so that you can edit graphics to fit the needs for your forum. Both fluid and fixed versions are included. A purchase (or win in this case) includes file access and top notch support for a full year.

MyBBWebHost is a reliable and affordable web host that provides hosting catered towards forums. Although it is targeted towards MyBB users, all types of forum software work fine, and the knowledgeable staff have lots of experience. Hosting is not oversold to provide the best performance. All plans come with the latest cPanel and other great features. Clients also get access to the 100% payout affiliate program. PS: The Admin Forums are hosted by MyBBWebHost
