    ChevyCobaltForum.com iPad Mini Giveaway + more!

    We are doing this giveaway to spark some life back into CCF and to show how serious we are on trying to accomplish that. We all know this site was very active in the past and I want to try to get that activity back. We may not be as active as before, but I want to give it a try with this giveaway. The details are below....

    EDIT:


    Why we are doing the giveaway?

    First and foremost, we want to have some fun by giving away free stuff. We will be giving away a total of 10 prizes ranging from a 16GB Black iPod Mini to $10 Amazon gift cards. We want to reward the members who consistently post quality information and possibly encourage others to do the same. Without all of you, this forum would not be able to succeed. This is our way of giving back and thanking everyone who contributes time to our forum.

    So, how does the contest work???

    Every post has a unique ID number assigned by the forum software. Starting RIGHT NOW, each on-topic post made before October 31, 2013 (11:59 pm EST) will count as an entry to the giveaway. To be eligible for this contest, you must have at least 30 posts total by the contest ending date by October 31th, 2013 at 11:59 EST.

    Posts within The Lounge area will NOT count as winning numbers. Also, "off-topic" posts that are made outside of The Lounge will be omitted from winning. Examples of off-topic posts are: one word replies like "cool", "nice", :smiley:, "bump", etc., and anything else that is clearly off-topic in nature. Determination of a quality post will be made at the discretion of Shaggy. Staff is also eligible for this contest, expect of course for me(Shaggy).


    The more you post quality information, the better chances of winning one of the prizes!


    The contest will end on the last post made October 31st at 11:59 pm EST. We will use Random.org to enter the range of post ID numbers that were made during the giveaway. We will run the Random.org query and reference the associated post. The first "on-topic" post that is selected by its ID will be awarded the iPad Mini to the member who posted it. We will continue using the same method for the rest of the 9 other prizes:


    Grand Prize- 16GB Black iPad mini

    2nd Prize- 16GB Black iPod Touch

    3rd Prize-16GB Black iPod Nano

    4th-5th place prizes: $100 Amazon gift cards

    6th-7th place prizes: $50 Amazon gift cards

    8th-10th place prizes: $10 Amazon gift cards

    Fine Print- Contest starts with the post ID number following this one and will end with the last post on 10/31/13 at 11:59 AM (EST). The Grand Prize is an 16g Black iPad Mini. There will only be 1 Grand prize winner for the iPad mini and 9 other prize winners. All prize winners will be selected using Random.org and only posts made in the selected dates listed will be eligible. Winners will be contacted via PM (Private Message) and will have up 7 days from contest end to claim the prize awarded. If not claimed within the 7 days, we will select another winner. One prize per person. If an International member wins one of the top 3 prizes, he/she will receive a gift card equal to the value of the prize. We reserve the right to remove any posts for any reason during the contest period and ban users. Any posts or members banned or removed during the contest period will be deemed ineligible to win the contest. We reserve the right to change, alter, or cancel this contest at any time for any reason. There will need to be at least a total of 1500 posts made within the contest time frame or the prizes will not be given out.

    That's pretty much it! If you have any questions about this contest, please post them here or you can pm me.

    Thanks again and good luck to all!!

    Good idea Shaggy. We're already setting an increase in traffic. I just hope we don't end up with a bunch of zombie threads being dug up.
