Congratulations to winners.

I've tried hard, but 100 posts without spamming seems to not possible for me. Maybe this month?
I try to make around 4 posts a day to reach the 100 limit, I try to add something to the discussion with each post. I do feel I'm almost tied to the schedule of posting, it was almost a relief to finish with a few days off at the end which was weird with a contest with such great rewards. I realize that the contest is to create forum content, but maybe some happy medium of 60 or 75 posts would have been better.

It depends on how you define "spamming".
I have taken part in discussions both in this section and in the "PYP!" section.
I expect to reach 100 posts this month today ... and I don't believe any of my posts (including this one) are "spamming".
you are not the only one

" spamming " depends on your personal definition

answering questions, posting comments and photos to me does not qualify as " spam "
even the silly comments in certain threads which have that type of post in mind when created

Spamming is in the eye of the beholder. If you can make meaningful contributions to multiple conversations, I do not see how one can call it spam. You can have both quantity and quality.

Let me express my gratitude being a winner... I rarely win things so this came as a shock when I read my e-mail this morning. This is the best forum- really. Now to select the lens...

Thank you!
Darren

Some of us just aren't prolific posters. Here or on other forums.

I read a lot, post occasionally, post photos and commentary from time to time.

100 + posts a month is outside my normal.

i think, perhaps, that is why Adam created three contests

one requiring entering the photo contest

one requiring 10 posts in the month

and one requiring 100 posts in a month

Posting 100/month is outside my norm as well. It feels like I'm spamming stuff too. If I'm not contributing by answering a question, giving advice, critique or posting a photo to new topic, then its just spam. But apparently that's what the forum wants for these 3 months, so I'll try to go along with it.

My family considers me to be a 'hermit' - more than an introvert - and yet my "lifetime" average is more than 7 per day here - which is well more than 100 per month. I discuss and ask questions, and make reasonable comments about photos. That is not spamming. You can use whatever language you choose - but I don't know of any reasonable definition which includes that as being 'spamming'!!

Was this in regards to my comment? If so, I know that page says they will be announced but it doesn't say how or where. It's early November but still no announcement that I can tell
