      it is a hard one isn't in regards to users maybe being an active member for more then a month? Whatever method you choose there will always be flaws.

      Its a tough one. The whole idea of the competitions was to reward our members who participate on a regular basis. However, to be fair to everyone we included everyone within the conditions.

      However the power of the internet is phenomenal and somebody posted on MSE about this competition.

      Although we are flattered that people have posted a link to our site on there, I personally feel that this is a disadvantage to those genuine members who do post, taking part on SkyUser and asking for help or to help others.

      But, we don't want to upset anybody with new rules.

      How about:
      • Admins are the sole arbiters of eligible members (against existing criteria and intention).
      • Post a list of all qualifiers on the last day.
      • Give anyone that feels they've been missed off 24 hours to make a claim by PM.
      • PM non eligible claimants with reasons for ineligibilty (optional).
      • Make the draw.
      • Publish the results.

      Simple.

      Jesus MSE that is a lot of users.one potential way is to announce the compettion but make the posts valid only from the day before. ie competition was posted on the 1st feb, but the 10 posts would have to be in January. Do I make sense to anyone else apart from me?

      I've just looked at the thread on MSE and the list of people who thanked the poster. One of the 37 usernames looked familiar so I checked and he/she made 11 posts in 12 minutes, the last one being to this thread to register a claim.

      Perfectly legal and all that but hardly in the spirit is it?
