i do not think it is a good idea... to award a prize to those who post the most. i believe there are a lot of loyal listeners out there that do not have the opportunity nor time to post to every little game in the community. when i view my "view new post" link it is always a stream of the same names in almost every thread out there...i would like to see quality and not quantity of posts and i dont believe that will happen awarding prizes to who can post the most.

just my humble opinion. take it or leave. note.gif

I understand where you're coming from, Dundee. Perhaps we could limit the number of prizes a person could win to add more variety. I was a winner this month, so it would not upset me if I was not eligible for August.

I don't think you meant to come across the way you seemed to. I posted more this month than I ever have before. If you would want to select a winner based on quality posts, what would be the criteria and who would judge? I am not closed at all to the idea, but I also think that we played according to the rules this last month, whether or not the posts were quality.

Not trying to be contentious, Dundee. You are a great poster and I always enjoy reading your opinions, agree or disagree.

Have a great day!

Some great comments here and yes I understand the concern with quality of posts versus quality and the fact that there are many a faithful listener out there that have never posted to this forum. Some great feedback dundee!

This is not something we want to do every month, and maybe it might be a good idea to have it as a seperate contest from our standard monthly contests.

We have about 100 CDs in our inventory of contests, so we need to start accelerating the # of CD giveaways. You can thank all of the new Founder Member signups over the past few days for our ability to continue these contests, as the costs of shipping and the packaging is funded by the sales of new Founder accounts.

We should announce the winners and new contests in a few days, probably by this Saturday - the 5th.

How about a compromise?

A winner for a specific contest can not eligible for the next, say, 90 days in the same contest, but would be eligible in the others.

If there is a concern of quality over quantity, then exclude the "Fun 'n Games" forum altogether or could it be a word count of all posts? I know that some posts are rather lengthy but fewer.

Additionally, how about a random selection of a poster with just one post as well as the most posts?

Do the prizes have to be just CD's?

With all this in mind, does Macfive have the time?

good quality post ya have here stevenpd beer_mug.gif thumbs_up.gif ......me thinks you have some good idea's.... i especially like the part of excluding the "fun and games" section. that is where most of the posts are going to: "the person above me" , "word association", "change the letter"....etc..... these are (although i am sure fun) simple one word or one sentence snippets... but yes they will get your post count up.

hey i think it is ok to give recognition to the highest poster... plaster their name on some of the pages..... but if its for a prize then that could be the only reason they are posting. again my humble opinion

oh and thank you steven for not ripping me for answering a question proposed by the man behind the creation of this site. beer_mug.gif note.gif

You're welcome, dundee. I had to think a little about why you would be concerned about any comment. It's all constructive, every little bit helps!

The more we "spread the wealth" the better as far as I'm concerned. Like I have said, since I have won two CD's this month, it would not at all hurt my feelings if the powers that be put a time restriction until another item could be won. Not a problem at all.

Winning a prize or not, I'm still gonna post like there's no tomorrow biggrin.gif !

Have a great day, all!
