I think it's okay to have this contest, at least it encourages people to participate in the forum. I've always been wanting that 40mm XS! I love that lens

So the best flooders, spamers and trolls of the forum will get prices?
A troll is somebody who makes inflammatory, non contributory posts just to agitate or sir things up, right?

Just asking..........

Well, that's probably best since:
A: You don't have an understanding of the rules. (The grand prizes haven't been awarded yet.)
B: You are actually another forum member who has registered a second account, in violation of forum rules, so you could further express your discontent with the contest. (See my post above regarding trolls.)

This is in fact a 2nd account by a member.

I'm kind of confused - I've received 3 likes today and yet in the contest it says I've not got any. Do the likes have to be on posts I've made today?

Yes, that's how it's set up at the moment.

Multiple Likes from the same member only count as one like (each day)
You must have at least 1 Like for every 5 posts in order to be awarded points for any post



Somewhere is also says that a like for a post prior to the current day does not count in the daily score calculation, but I can't find it now.


Oh, here it is:

FYI I've just patched an issue with the giveaway standing page. Earlier this morning it was counting today's likes of yesterday's posts toward yesterday's standings, which shouldn't be the case. Only likes made on the same day count for posts made on that day.

The originally-announced winner (dansamy) was correct.

Meaning when Amy finds the next loophole in the algorithm, tests it & then PMs Adam, it's subject to change!

Not really!

But the rules do say that the contest rules are subject to change. Meaning that if there's a way to manipulate the contest to skew it unfairly, it can be changed to fix that.

Me too, maybe there should be somewhere we can have 'gender' on our bit on the sides of our posts (e.g. under 'location').

So long as there is a choice for "Undecided" or "Choose Not To Respond".
