After a bit of useless time, we thought that it was time to give you something again. We are launching a new Contest Aimed for those People who have plenty idea's and Wisdom to share within Forum's but do not get recognised and rewarded for it, So we created this competition to reward those people for their hard effort.

Wow. 800 high-quality posts in a matter of 30 days? That comes to almost 27 posts per day and increasing with every day the contest deadline approaching. Are you sure its not a typo?

By asking for 800 posts per person in a months time, your asking for spam. Your not only asking for spam, but your asking for a lot more trouble than its worth, especially for your admins who you say will be reading it all. You can ask Dan (ldcdc) if he would like to read 800 posts per person (say....30 people) in a months time. I would think not. Its a very interesting and worthwhile contest, but I think that you're making it much to hard for yourself and your contestants (maybe thats the point)

Heh - we are looking for people with 800 Quality posts - It really isnt that much to ask.

I beg to differ I only have 421 posts here and i've been a member since April.

800 posts in 30 days! I find that to be a little impossible because everyone that has posted here so far has post averages of well below 27 posts per day. As previously expressed, I think you are just asking for people to spam the boards. Also, how many moderators do you have on your boards to read all of the posts that will come from all your members?

Sounds to me like they're looking for a surge of traffic so they can mark up the advertising spots.

That is a highly possible reason for doing an almost impossible posting contest. It also makes a lot of sense. If advertisers see that that forum is getting a lot of hits, then they will be willing to spend a little more to get their message across.

The forum currently has 4,068 posts. You think one person can add 800 posts to it? No, I don't think you actually expect it to happen.

IMO this contest is a great way to get your name published out there, but nothing more. Marketing at its best. (Sorry for my bluntness.)

Exactly...there is no way for one person to post 800 times within 30 days. I believe this contest was designed to make ad space cost more because they needed the extra revenue.

What's changed? On your own forum would you count your own posts as "quality"?
