Post-of-the-month results - December 2010

Post by richard@imutual » Sat Jan 01 2011 2:28pm

I'm pleased to announce that the winners of the Post-of-the-month competition for December 2010, as determined by ratings by our members, are:


Winner (100 shares): kevinchess1 for the post in the topic Rudkev the red knows (Not) Band here Christmas Comp with 20739 votes

Runner-up (25 shares): kevinchess1 for the post in the topic MaD Macky's Massive Michelmas scratch card giveaway with 19533 votes

3rd place (10 shares): kevinchess1 for the post in the topic QOTM(Nov) with 17782 votes

So a clean sweep for Kev after missing out on last month's prize!

The prizes have been credited to Kev's account :)

To encourage other posters, I'd like to suggest for this month's comp that we have a limit of one prize per poster (sorry, Kev!)

Good luck to everyone in this month's competition. For a reminder of how the competition works, click here

Comment from Kev in another thread
And Richard has decide to limit the POTM to one prize per person
without askin us if that what we want
I don't deny I have a vested interest in the POTM havin had a clean sweep this month
But i didn't win at no cost.
What happen if one month Expresso or XXXRaich posts up 2 or 3 grate freebiess
are they to miss out?
Is that fair
Not sayin Richard's right or wrong
But I do feel that it's somethnig that be should ask on the forums
Happy to hear what everyone thinks on this. My thoughts for starters...

When we extended the comp from one prize to three, the idea was to encourage more people to post who might otherwise think that they had no chance of winning. The same person then won all three prizes! Richly deserved, of course, but I feel that the top prize should be recognition enough for one person and that 2nd and 3rd prizes should be reserved for the next best posters

I believe there should be a limit of one prize per person per month - simply to encourage many people to post on the forums. If one person (no names mentioned) wins all three prizes every month, then others might stop posting quality posts.

I am inclined to agree with this otherwise it becomes predictable and self defeating. In fact if it happened every month as it could (given the popularity of certain posts). then there becomes no point in having it at all.( As Bruce has said already others might stop posting) maybe because they see it as pointless.

Kevin wrote "What happen if one month Expresso or XXXRaich posts up 2 or 3 grate freebiess
are they to miss out?" In my opinion they won't because they will still get equal chances to win one prize. It will be a level playing field for everyone
