Second year anniversary contests with cash prizes!
Hello fellow pet keepers,
It has been two years since the launch of Pets Keepers Guide on 2/20/2012. Thanks everyone who has been contributing to this wonderful community! We will have a new event with multiple contests with the goal of reward our most dedicated members.
The event will have three separated contests.
1. The most informative posts
2. The best questions
3. The most active member
The Most Informative Posts (The Prize = $50 USD through Paypal)
Through the period 3/01/2014 to 6/30/2014, whoever can make the most very informative posts will get the prize. Try your best to answer pet questions from other members. Creating informative threads on your own (ex: how to take care of certain pets) will also be great.
The Best Questions (The Prize = $50 USD through Paypal)
Through the period of 3/01/2014 to 6/30/2014, whoever can ask most of the best pet related questions will be the winner. Any question related to pets will do. These questions may include but not limited to ask for help, “technical” questions about pets, good survey type of questions related to pets.
The most referral (The Prize = $50 USD through Paypal)
Whoever can bring in most new members between 3/01/2014 to 6/30/2014 through referral will be the winner! (The referred members will only be counted if they have been active and made at least 30 posts by the end of the event)
A single member can win one or more prizes if he or she is clearly the winner for each contest. Yes, it means the maximal total you can win is $150 USD.
The minimal requirements to be the winners for all three contests
a. All posts count toward the contests must be pet related. (Asking about how to kill cockroaches in the pet insect forum is definitely not a pet related question.) Posts in off-topic section or any other subforums without post count won't be counted.
b. You must have total minimal 100 posts made with minimal average daily post count of 5 during the 4 months of contest period from 3/01/2014 to 6/30/2014.
c. You must be a member of the forum for at least 14 days by 6/30/2014 to be a candidate for the winner.
d. You must not spam, and your posts must not be too short, low quality, or irrelevant. One-liner or two lines all the time will not win you the contests. Only informative long posts are appreciated.
e. No copy and paste from other sites is allowed. You may make short summaries of what you have learned elsewhere in your own words. It is required to post the source link if you copied more than a few entire sentences without a word of your own.
Please note that only the posts in the sections where there is post count will be included.
Please stay on the topics. Anything unrelated to pets will be moved to off-topic sections, and the posts will not be counted toward the event.
We reserve the rights to modify the rules for the contests if we see exploiting of the rules.
We reserve the rights to cancel one or more contests if there is an overall lack of interest and participation or wide spread abuse.
