End of year contest, $75+$50 prize!

  1. Dec 17, 2013 #1

    I will be calculating who the top posters of each main forum for the year of 2013 (Quantum Mechanics, Biology, General Engineering etc...). I will then pool all the top posters and randomly draw a winner (you just have to trust me). The prize will be a $75 Amazon gift card. We also have a $50 gift card for second place!


    Just for fun I will also release a table of the top 5 posters of each forum for 2013.

    You have two weeks! Go! :smile:

    * this just in, a generous anonymous member has donated $50 as a second prize!!!

    I suppose these posts require actual content with merit, not "thanks!". "yeah", "great", "me too".

    What, precisely, does "top poster" mean? Kindly provide a detailed description of such an entity.

    . . . ugh, just playing about the detailed description thing. :)

    Dang!! I should have been posting my responses above the quoted question in my replies all this time. Surely I would have won "Top Poster" then...

    It's bad enough to have people begging for thanks without giving them even more incentives.

    Most of the top thanked members are nominated for the homework help award :)

    The trick is to just report a post every 60 seconds and win top poster in the Mentor's Forum.
