I actually spent way to much time on the computer trying to answer a lot of questions that were asked by a lot of newer members. Since I am retired it was just time that I took away from something else that and submitting a couple of stories helped me. But there are a lot on here that have been here a long time that made this forum in the first place that don't have the time to sit at a computer and answer a lot of questions. The big problem that I saw last month was a member asking a question and then in the next minute puting in his answer to get two post. Then there was the question of how many days are left, and then coming back and answering with 99, then 98 then 97 and so on. Also looking at a lot of the point totals it didn't look like there were too many deductions. I know that I had some but that was from me deleating a post that I made. I also wonder just how this will help the fourm after all the contest are done and if you will have anywhere near the paticipation and web hits from members. I can't wait to see the questions that are going to come up when we get into the months with the first prizes being rifles, but then I won't be around much then since it is going to be hunting seasons and I'll be out on the hills.
I'll agree the running a contest and coming up with rules and then people to enforce the rules is diffucult but it seams like some of the ones here could of been a little better thought out.
