How to Enter:
2 Ways to Win!
  • Start New Topics (Ask New Questions)
  • Reply To Topics (Answer Questions)


The more questions/topics you start, and the more answers/replies you make, the better your chances. Spam will not be tolerated, members found posting just to increase their chances will be disqualified and/or banned. Post because you want to, knowing you might win, not because you want to win.

Eligibility
You must be a member of Dream.In.Code with at least 10 posts at the time the contest ends (September 30th @ 9:00PM MT). Registration is free, no purchase necessary.
Anyone 18 years or older may enter as long as your local laws allow you to participate in contests and receive the prize. You will be responsible for any taxes or fees imposed by your local government. Current Dream.In.Code team members (moderators, admins, and contract employees) are not eligible. Family members of Dream.In.Code team members are also not eligible.

How to Win
On September 30th at 9:00PM MST we'll draw the names of 2 random people: 1 random person that started a new topic between August 16th and September 30th 2010, and 1 random person that replied to a topic between August 16th and September 30th, 2010.

Only one (1) prize per winner. In the case the same name is drawn twice, another random name will be drawn.

Odds
Odds depend on the number of entries.

Rules


1. NO PURCHASE NECESSARY. The contest is open to all registered members of www.DreamInCode.net age 18 or older.

There will be no substitution of prizes and no cash will be awarded in lieu of merchandise or awards, except by MEDIAGROUPONE/DREAM.IN.CODE's sole election due to prize unavailability.

6. Representatives of MEDIAGROUPONE/DREAM.IN.CODE will randomly select 1 random new topic and 1 random post made during the contest.

Just curious... and been curious about this for awhile... but are mentors considered moderators when it comes to contests? Just curious if mentors have a shot at any of these great contests that come up. Also I wanted a definitive answer when it comes to the whole mentor/moderator difference since obviously some of mentors can moderate specific forums.

:)

You guys qualify because you're not part of the team that can influence the results.

Looking forward to see the winners, could be anybody... even a first time poster!

Moderators have the ability to delete posts, ban members, and there could be perceived impropriety... so for the sake of the contests, I try to keep things as honest and random as possible.
