Competition Rules
« on: December 28, 2015, 20:59:51 »
The most important rule.  My decision on the winner is final.  No arguments please.

Competitions will be run most months, they should start after the 1st, and run until the end of the month. The operative word is should, they may start late, and may end before or after the end of the month.  This all depends on my availability.   There will always be a posting in this board announcing the start and end of the competition.

The start of the competition and end of the competition will be announced in the Competitions board.

The competition prizes for the month will be announced in the start announcement.

To be eligible to win a prize, you must reply to the monthly competition start message, listing those prizes you wish to accept if you win.  It does not matter when you reply to the posting, so long as it is before the end of the monthly competition.  An early reply does not give you an advantage in the draw.

You can only win 1 prize in a monthly draw.  Once you have won a prize, you will be withdrawn from the months draw so that you will not win a second prize in this draw.

All prizes and winners will be announced shortly after the end of the competition. 

Prizes must be claimed and used within two months of winning.  By use this means featured advertising prizes have been started.  In the case of AW credits, that you have given me your email address and you have accepted the transfer of credits.

The prizes will be drawn when the competition finishes.  The winners will be selected at random.  You will get a greater chance of winning by posting more posts in the competition month, or having a greater increase in Karma during the competition month.

Members who leave the forum, or are banned during the competition will be dropped from the competition.

There is a minimum of four postings in the month to be eligible.

The more postings the greater the chance of winning, though someone who posts 1000 posts does not have a 10 times advantage over someone who posts 100 times.

All non banned members are eligible, except me and the board PA
