Valued members,

While the winners have been already selected and picked, we still have a few days to rationalize the process of this great giveaway, as well as add a few twists!

One such twist, if you haven't yet noticed, is that we have removed the price tags off all the prizes. Why? Picking the most "expensive" gift does not require much attention or skill. We would like our winners to make sensible choices based on need, so that the most benefit is gained when the prize is delivered.

Stay tuned for further updates on the contest.

We can't wait to give these amazing prizes away!

It's party time!



Valued HostingDiscussion.com Members,

Along with the end of year 2005, HD's contest for most valuable members of the year is coming to its own conclusion. However, there is still much to do in days to come - selecting and processing all the prizes to well deserved winners!

The 2005 “End-of-Year Most Valuable Member” contest is the biggest contest HostingDiscussion.com has ever run. It was not a conventional contest found on many other forums where members compete based on the number of posts members make. This one was content-driven, and it proved to be a huge success. Apart from sharp increase in both quality and quantity of discussions during the previous year, we have seen competing communities starting to run contests closely similar in format and objectivity.

The following winners, as decided by forum staff, are members who showcased true web hosting industry knowledge, who were able to help and assist other members, and who actively participated in non-commercial discussions.

As per our decision, we selected three big winners. In addition, we have also chosen two runner-up members to arrive at a total of five winners. Runner-ups may not have qualified based on number of posts, but they were certainly noted as one of the most valuable assets of HostingDiscussion.com community. They will also be honored with prizes.


And the winners are (rank order):

1. Exon - 5 prizes
2. dubs - 3 prizes
3. Equinox - 3 prizes

And the runner-ups are (rank order):

1. Senad - 2 prizes
2. vito - 2 prizes


We congratulate each and every one of our contest winners! In the following week these members will be taking turns to pick rewards for their efforts.

PRIZE DISTRIBUTION:

First round: Exon chooses 3, dubs 2, Equinox 2, Senad 1 and vito 1;
Round two: Exon chooses 2, dubs 1, Equinox 1, Senad 1, and vito (poor him) gets the left over prize.


Stay tuned for updates!
