    Contest: Pick the date of the 40,000th Member registration
    All,

    We are almost at the 40K mark (39,429 at the time of this post) and wanted to mark the event with a contest. Pick the date you think they'll register and you'll win your choice of the following prizes:


    1. 8GB Aplle iPhone (no service just the machine); or
    2. 16GB iPod touch; or
    3. 160GB iPod classic; or
    4. $400 paid via paypal.
    Rules:

    • Contest open only to ABW members.
    • Members may not artificially infalte the membership count by any means, doing so will result in an IP ban.
    • Only one prize winner is possible.
    • Members select a date by posting it, dates are assigned on a first come first served basis and only one date entry per member.
    Continued Success,

    Haiko

    can we post more than one date?
    will you be giving an update on # of members between now and then?
    and do we need to guess whether in the am or pm?

    I'll take December 31st, 2007....

    Since these are some sweet prizes, H, you might want to add that the winner can't win with his/her own IP or self registration

    I'll also add a second prize ... If someone selects the date I want it to happen, they'll instantly win $100 (via paypal) or an ipod shuffle.

    Edit to add, and a thrird prize: The reason why that date (it's quite simple if you think about it) prize - $50 in paypal cash.
    Continued Success,

    This is also my guess for the date Haiko wants it to be. Reason: It's the anniversary of join date for many many long-timer's here, obviously an ABW milestone of some sort?

    Very good guess, but not correct. I'll run 40K recruiting banners for you (pretty good consolation prize ) Send me the banner and the landing page URL or I can use the old one you ran.

    BTW - The 1/18/05 is the import date when we moved from infopop platform to VB.

    Here's a Hint to all - it has to do with the #40!
    Continued Success,

    My wife has a membership, but never posts (until she heard there was an iPhone up for grabs). Is more than one guess from the same IP allowed?

    She can, there are a few memberships that have the same IP (all of which were allowed with prior approval) and they are all allowed to enter.
