Adam, it says the top 5% of raffle ticket holders will get unlimited forum space.  What is the duration of this?  Month, year, lifetime?

I would like to enter this giveaway because I work with special needs kids and I am in need of a long-lasting camera to capture some accomplishments of the kids.

Will a winner be announced as soon as the contest closes?

Just guessing here, but I wonder if the winner is contacted first, before they are shown as the winner on the giveaway page?

Most likely. That is how I would handle it if I was doing this.

I'll bet Adam's PM box is full of "Did I win?" and "Who won?" and "When is the announcement?" messages.  :lol:

I would agree that is the best way to handle it...

 

I also agree that I wouldn't want Adam's PM box today :)

 

On the other hand, I'm patiently waiting for Adam to send me that PM telling me I've won :lol: !


Not that I expect he will send that PM...but, hey, it is nice to dream!

I almost want to create an account with a username of "Adom" and just start PMing everyone with silly messages like "Hi, did you win?" 

 

LOL

So, I'm going through all the giveaway entries right now to make sure they're valid.  Some of the stuff I'm seeing is pretty entertaining, but for the most part things look good.  Should have the winner picked out soon!

Oh man the suspense is killing me! Even thought I doubt I'll win, I still have high hopes for the one who does as well as this forum!

 Look at it mathematically. 6619 total entries. I think the maximum number an individual could earn was 47.

 

47/6619 = 0.007 * 100 = 0.7% chance

 

Those are thin odds for even the highest ticket holders.  So, even if you had 6 entries (a minimal effort to say the least) your 0.1% chance of winning isn't TOO far off from the highest holder.

 

In short... it's really anyone's game!

That is why I majored in Art. I never could get the decimals in the right place. :)
