Congrats to everyone who made it into the raffle! The October event has now ended, and the November event has begun.

I will calculate final ticket counts and draw the winner in the next 1-2 days.

Well, of course, and I see that you are already #15 in the new General "raffle".

Ok thanks for that, just put me off as it still says October.

and this post has not counted, still on 0, that happened at the beginning of October as well. It is already November here.

ok now it is counting down, strange that it misses the first post each time.
From the October 'raffles', the database takes a minute or two to include a post, but it will eventually count all of your posts, including the first.

Did I miss the winner announcement? Can't find it.
@Adam, I believe, lives in Arizona, which is something like GMT-8. He plans to check the final results by hand, so it may take him a few hours. Be patient - we've waited a month, a few more hours won't hurt.

101 posts + 0 likes would then qualify
I know, but people who do not write 100 posts will have other means of getting a chance in the raffle.

frankly I like the rules of the current contests

I don't think it is hard for someone to post 100 times in the time period given

Well the solution is simple...........write 100 posts in a month that isn't hard........or sit and complain 100 times that counts as posts too.

I believe the theory is to count likes received; so if I "like" this post, you would receive an extra 'point' towards the 'raffle'. I also believe this was suggested last month when @Adam was asking for suggestions on how these 'raffles' should be run. What it boils down to, is that people will complain no matter how he runs it. I think he is very gracious in running the 'raffles' at all. .
Donít know if thatís a comment to my ď1 like = 1 postĒ sugestion reg321, but it was certainly not meant as a complaint, it was rather meant as a constructive suggestion (I did not see Adam asking for suggestions). Iíll never write 100 posts in a month, but if likes for pictures or comments posted counted as well, it would/could add to the forum as well as posts.
Iím fully satisfied with participating in the vintage 50mm contest

The last thing I would do is to complain, read my reply to reh321 above this
