Time flies. It has been exactly one year since the launch of Pets Keepers Guide on 2/20/2012. Thanks everyone who has been contributing to this community! The One-Year Anniversary is on 2/20/2013, and we will launch a new series of contests on our pet forum with cash prizes for the winners!
The event will have three contests.
1. The most informative posts
2. The best questions
3. The most active member
The Most Informative Posts (The Prize = $10 USD through Paypal)
Through the period 2/20/2013 to 5/20/2013, whoever can make most 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 = $10 USD through Paypal)
Through the period of 2/20/2013 to 5/20/2013, whoever can ask most of the best pet related questions will get to 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 active member (The Prize = $10 USD through Paypal)
Whoever can make the most posts (without spam) during the event will get the prize of being the most active member.
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 $30.
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.)
b. You must have an average daily post count of 5 or more during the entire period of the contest. (If you joined as a new member in the middle of the contest, the daily average post count will be using the number of days you had been a member)
c. You must be a member of the forum for at least 14 days by 5/20/2013.
d. You must not spam, and your posts must not be too short, low quality, or irrelevant.
e. No copy and paste from other sites is allowed. You may make short summaries of what you learned elsewhere in your own words. It is required to post the source link if you copied more than an entire sentence without a word of your own.
More tips for winning -
If you can refer someone new to join the forum, 20% of his or her post count will be counted toward yours for the contests. Make sure your friends use the referral feature when they sign up, because we will only count those referrals in your profile.
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.
We reserve the rights to cancel one or more contests if there is an overall lack of interest and participation or wide spread abuse.
