    Exclamation Contest Starts Tomorrow - Only 8 Participants

    The title says it all. The contest begins tonight at midnight. So far we only have 8 entries. Those of you who emailed me know who you are. I thought we would have more people interested than this, but maybe it will grow.

    So far only 9 people have e-mailed me per the instructions in the sticky:

    Here's how it's going to work. It will be easier if I know who all I should be monitoring for the contest, so everyone whom wants to enter should send email to admin@ocsetiteam.com and state 1)your forum name if applicable, and secondly your seti user name and what rank you currently hold. This will help me organize things a bit. The cut off date for entering via email is midnight June 30th - this coming Sunday. Now the rules:

    1)Everyone that enters the contest will get one ticket for doing at least 1 wu per day for the entire month of July.

    2)Any member that joins the team during the month of July, and enters the contest via email as discussed above, will get 1 bonus ticket (provided they follow rule 1 also)

    3)An inactive member - one that hasn't returned a unit since December 31st 2001, will get 1 bonus ticket for returning and following rule #1 of course. This is hard to follow folks. I do have a list of inactive members for several months, but not 6 months. I'm not sure how we're going to handle this part.

    4)You can get 1 extra ticket by donating $1, and that's all.

    5)You can buy as many extra tickets as you like for $5 each.

    I would prefer that donations be sent to the Paypal account listed on the donations page. That makes it easier for me to track. I don't want donations coming via snail mail after July - that just won't work. We need to run this in an organized fashion within the month of July.

    A creative solution (that works :)) is a good solution.

    My setup: Ghetto Celeron 600, Athlon XP 1600+ (currently OOS), and A64 3200+ - "yay it finally works!!"

    Actually no - that's not how it works. You enter and get 1 ticket for the month as long as you turn in 31 units during the month of July - or average 1 per day, however you want to look at it. New members get a bonus ticket. One and only 1 extra ticket may be bought for $1. If you want more than 2 tickets extras may be purchased for $5 each. So if all you do is just enter then you only get one ticket. If you're a new member and you enter you get two.

    I don't want it. I'll let a newbie or returning cruncher win it.

    should we make a better way to annouce this contest???

    like sticky saying "join oc.com seti team & win a combo system"

    or,

    make an anoucement/statment on the front page

    this should help to draw more new/old member.

    also, should we extend the entry period for a little longer in order to give time for new comer/old schooler? like till the first/second week of July. and as long as they ave. at least 1/day, they r in.

    just my $0.02

    and lastly, good luck to u all!!!!
