2006 Chevy Suburban Club Lucky Member Contest
Info, Rules & Guidelines

To help thank everyone that has helped this site grow to what it is today, we’re giving away a $100.00 VISA gift card to one lucky member that will be drawn at random on June 1st, 2006.

How does it work?
In the upper-right corner of each post in the message forum on www.chevysuburbanclub.com is a unique post number (i.e. #1545). On June 1st, we will randomly generate a number that falls between the first post of March 1st, 2006 and the last post of May 31st, 2006.

If that number matches the post number of a message that you posted, and you meet all criteria listed below, you win the $100.00 VISA gift card! The more messages that you post, the greater the odds are that you will win.

Contest Starts: March 1, 2006 – (03-01-2006) at 12:00 AM
Contest Ends: May 31, 2006 – (05-31-2006) at 11:59 PM

2. All members that have posted at least one (1) relevant photo in the Chevy Photo Gallery are eligible.

Maybe people are holding back??? Who knows, maybe? This is all just an exercise to give back a little bit to people who are posting and helping to turn this board into the #1 resource on the web for the Chevy Suburban!

Yeah, as of right now, I'm not certain how many people are eligible. It might be a race between a small handful of people.

... however, the number of messages that are being posted has risen quite a bit. There may be 10-20 people by the end of the month that are in the pool. I'm going to keep going at it until I get a winner.

This is a pretty cool idea! It also helps to ask people to invite their friends to the club. Maybe they can write an introduction for their friend and that post will count towards them in the contest :)

Well, I was thinking of doing some sort of referal points-bases system to help get people to refer other members to the site, but that seems like a lot of extra work and it makes it complex.

I believe that there is a plug-in module that will help to track referers. I may consider putting that in place sometime soon (after I finish moving).

Even though I've been out and away for the past week with a bum elbow, this is still ongoing. Get your posts in and your pics up on the photo gallery.

I think that very few people are eligible for this unless more people start posting.

As of this posting, only 7 users are eligible to win this event.

2 users have post levels in the 40's.
4 users have post levels in the 30's.
4 users have post levels in the 20's.
Quite a few have post levels in the 10's.
A whole bunch between 1 and 10.

Let's face it though. Anyone could sign-up on the board and post 50 good messages on the board in maybe just an hour or so.

Nope, just posts done on the ChevySuburbanClub.com.

Time is running out everyone. Only two weeks (roughly) to go on this. :)
