Yeah, I don't exactly need any more domains myself. I suppose you could just give the person the money that you would've spent on the domain, but that might not be as fun.   You could certainly off

Lol, this is pretty well locked up between the top two.

Wow! Congratulations. I tried participating but my exams are taking over my life.. .   @Nathan, I like the idea about forum softwares as prize for the monthly competition, I would love to participa

Are there certain forums that do not count? For instance, people can beef up some posts in the off-topic by talking about worthless stuff... but will increase their posts.

 

Just looking for clarification on which forums.

Oops, I didn't see this when you originally posted it. Time's almost up!

 

For future contests, you might want to have an actual point tracker or bank type plugin installed so we can see how our progress. If there already is one and I just don't see it, feel free to slap me or something. :)

It's any forum on this contest since I didn't clarify, but makes sense for the next round I will specify certain boards. I did say no spammy crap, so I will monitor that.

Yeah I'm in progress of making a plugin for tracking that stuff, right now it's all just a query I run against the database then check users posts for any spam/junk.

I'm also working on free hosting, so if someone doesn't need a domain they could get a free hosting account on one of my servers.

 

Still working out the specifics but free hosting will be an option.

If we don't need a domain or hosting, can we have donuts instead?

 

Hmm....it might get stale by the time it arrives :) Have any other suggestions to do with web stuff I could offer in the same price range that could be useful to you? I would consider adding it.

Hmm. Donuts are just about the best thing I can think of (I just ate two, by the way). Most web stuff is more expensive - stuff like licenses, ad slots, traffic, backlinks, database junkie services, design, widget coding... it's all unlimited but not as cheap as a domain. Probably best to stick with the domain or hosting, I would guess.

You could certainly offer up free ad space for a month or something. Or a link in your own signature for a month or something? It might not be worth quite as much for some people, but it's still a nice prize if they don't need an additional domain.

Good call Jessi. While signature links don't provide that much, an ad space would make sense.

 

I'm going to work on that tonight and I'll figure out something with that.

 

Between a domain, hosting or ad spot I thing we should be able to cover most people!

Well technically, that's free advertising for a person for every single post you make...and every post you've made before. It's an ad spot spread throughout the whole site and not just on a sidebar that someone may ignore or have blocked by an addon entirely. It's not a permanent backlink, of course, but it still provides a nice chunk of exposure.

Thanks everyone and to DB.net Admins too. I actually forgot about the contest. I just make sure to pop once in lolforums and DB.net everyday. Didn't think that I would be that high.

 

I really appreciate the Prize and thanks again. I am gonna find a good domain now. :yahoo:
