I want to win the 40XS, but I think quite a number of the daily prizes are pretty cool too!

Good luck, have fun to all!

Great incentive to get people active.

Just a clarification on what is considered a post:

Is it a new thread/discussion or do replies to existing threads count as well?

I always dreamed of a fridge magnet that says "unlimited attachments"

This competition must be for pensioners or all those lucky, snowed in folks. Some of us have to work , and some have so much sunshine, we can't waste it.....we must go out and shoot!

I have to work too, but it is awfully snowy here

I think the bit about 1 like for every 5 posts over 20 will make this contest a little less like a spam fest.

Yup. We'll all have to find worthwhile input to post! Which is a good thing.

Yes, I agree about the possibility of spam clogging interesting threads. Hope it does't happen.

neat competition Adam. Hopefully we can get some cool threads and some interesting banter going back and forth.



edit: realize that this is a bad day for this to start as I'm solo shifting at work and it's going to be a long slow day....

Forget about winning. Ain't gonna happen.

Think about the power you possess in the mouse click on that thumb.

These prizes are really nice and desirable. However i have mixed feelings about the contest. i want to comment on the forum, i enjoy reading the and learning from the experience of other photographers here daily, but with the prizes, i feel like if i comment more than i already do. it might look as if i'm spaming. Anyway. Wouldn't mind having the remote.

We should advertive this on the Nikcanon forums (insert evil laugh here)

I also have mixed feelings about this contest. Rather than post to purely participate I think there will be a small nagging voice telling me to filter my posts a bit in order to evoke responses and likes on purpose.
