Just for the record, you dont' have to post code, we just want to get people posting in the help forums. Ask questions, help out, etc. etc.

I have a feeling this contest is going to be a lot of fun. Even if you dont know anything about anything.. asking a question or putting in your thoughts about a new video game or whatever gets you an entry in the contest.

Seeing as your post is not a question, an answer, or a review, it has not increased the value of the forum. And thus... won't be counted as an entry.

If you would like to gauge the value of our community, you might post something worthwhile in one of the forums included in the contest and see the replies you get.
