    Thumbs up Golden Linkshare Awards - Predictions : Win US $1000
    Hi All

    Adding a bit of fun on the boards for the Golden Linkshare Awards. Quite Simple. Predict the winners for each category and the person with the most correct answers we'll give US $500 (in the event of a draw money is split equally, in the event of no winner - just in case - Then John will have $500 beer money for the Symposium.

    Enter your predictions in order please, open to everyone, AMs, OPM Staff, Network Staff and Affs. (but not Linkshare or AMWSO Staff, sorry guys )

    Entries MUST be listed below, nothing by PM and email. And be listed before June 22nd

    Make that $1,000 to the winner , Thank you Haiko

    Cheers

    Chris

    Well Haiko should definitely win because he has been so vocal and also given us all the opportunity to be vocal

    but...

    Chris has also been very vocal and helpful, besides we all love his pictures

    but...

    Ecom has the wonderful "ad whore" phrases and spins them like none can

    ohhh how could you choose - you 3 all deserve to win!!!

    as far as the others, lol, who cares

    1 in 15 chance Only?

    Better odds than Lotto around here.

    I think I'm about to change my mind and keep that 1K, since I have better odds now.

    Does anybody have the URL for Wow Things, Inc. or AvenueMe? I can't seem to find a reference to either of these in Yahoo or Google. Linkshare doesn't list anything besides these words. Maybe I just overlooked it somewhere.

    A tie between Chris and Haiko. But if I need to decide ... my money is on Haiko.


    I hope I am not digging out that old PayPal password for no reason now ...
