Congratulations to BuckeyeFanatic25 (Ryan), you deserved it! As I said in my post last night, if BuckeyeFanatic25 didn’t receive an e-mail, it means Andru didn’t announce the winner. He truely did an outstanding job on the forums and the blog. I’ve talked to Ryan before and I could tell he was nervous about winning. I asked him last night if he won before the winner was announced and he said “Hotmail wasn’t working” for him. So I guess it’s because he couldn’t tell! LOL! No wonder he was so secretive. Anyways, congrats Ryan!
Andru, if you don’t mind, I’d like to see what place I ended up getting in this contest. It would be interesting to know how someone with as little points as me did.
@sushrukh: Andru chose the winner fair and square. BuckeyeFanatic25 had a lot of great quality posts. Sure, he lost a lot of posts, and I and other members did too. This is not only because of the old backup that was restored but also because some other spam topics were deleted, but the posts that BuckeyeFanatic25 made were quality topics. As Andru stated in his topic, Buckeye still made more points than you even if you weren’t disqualified! He made a lot of bonus points and posts/comments that contributed to the community. One line posts won’t ever help out!
Before you launch the next contest Andru, the community and I feel that we need moderators to moderate the contest. I expect like in this contest we will start receiving a lot of spam in the next contest too. It is really important to have moderators there and not discourage other members to leave the forums because of the increasing amount of spam topics. I would also like an official “forum rules” topic which defines what constitutes as spam and what rules people are to follow in the forum, because it seems like many people were surprised that what they were doing was marked as spam.
