Be a Top Contributor! (Win $25 Every Month)

Win $25 Every Month!

With the launch of the new Code Snippets 2.1, and a new way of tracking Kudos, you now have the opportunity to win $25 every month by being the Top Contributor!

At the end of each month, I'll pull a report of the top contributors for that month. The person who earned the most kudos will get a $25 Visa Gift Card (or PayPal if you have it). There is no limit to the number of times you can win! If you're the top contributor every month, you'll win every month!

So now, you could win $25 AND a DIC Thumb Drive!

Write those tutorials (their worth 50 kudos each!) and submit those snippets (worth 25 kudos each!).

Ready... Go!

Oh... I almost forgot to mention, you can see who's in the lead this month by checking the Top Contributors list on the right side of each page!

So now we can win month to month, rather than having to wait an entire year to win again? Or is there still a waiting period?

That's good news
But I don't think you can pass money to my country, because of some politic things that I don't really understand.
Anyway, it's enough to be at the top sometime

Code is all that I have :)

Is the winner the top contributor in the listing, the top contributor for the month, or is it chosen randomly from the top 10 contributors?

Just clarification. :)

It's the top contributor at the end of the month. I will run a query that pulls the total kudos submitted between the first of the month, and the last day of the month, and whoever's name has the most kudos for that month wins the $25. Not random at all.

And yes, you can win every month, no limit.

Cool promo...are there eligibility restrictions (mods,admins,etc not eligible)?

And what's the status of the October thumbdrive draw?

*edit
lol. two dudes have negative contributions for November...something wrong with the queries?

I gotta rewrite the query to pull the random winner for the thumb drive.

Team members are never eligible, but mentors are.

Also, the thumb drive is still a once a year thing... if you win, that's it for the year, but the $25 can be won monthly.

Just mail me a bag of thumb drives, if I can send the code in. I've tried to edit this post and the internet at the university is ass, it keeps resetting and the box goes blank, and then it asks me to log in again every time I go to a new page. I'll have to do it from home... But I feel so lazy at home!
