Contest Winners

29 Jul, 2015

Congratulations to our six (actually seven) contest winners! The contest was a big success with over 460 posts added by 20 participants. On the final day alone 140 posts were added!

Justin wins $40 with a total of 72 posts. Runner up Zander Collison wins $20 with 60 posts. Davis Buskirk, Lynn Schramek, Crisu28 and Gina win $10 each. We are also awarding an extra $10 prize to Natalie Frank as she had some trouble submitting posts at the last minute.  Final results are in this spreadsheet. Payments will be made in PayPal later this evening. Our next contest will be in two weeks. Thank you to everyone who participated!

On a personal note, it was great to see the quality of posts improving as the contest progressed, and to see the many different type of topics people are working on. People added posts about Syria, Sandra Bland, Sojourner Truth, Israel, Scott Walker, League of Legends, Donald Trump, Kobe Bryant and many, many more topics. Remember, all posts stay in the system and will continue to increase in value as the site gets more popular.

I will be working to improve the posting speed over the next few weeks and will be starting some discussions about the site in the forum. I’d love it if you could join in.
