Re: OSNN, BUZZ CORPS and HP MAGIC GIVEAWAY

Has anyone else noticed a marked increase in the number of posts in the past day or so? I wonder what's up with that? :D
You will see it go back down to two posts a week after the contest is over. These things always bring out the spammer :p

Re: OSNN, BUZZ CORPS and HP MAGIC GIVEAWAY

Isn't there a chance that old members will get better reputations than new members ? I mean people know them well,they are continuing to support the community much longer than us new people.So, it's for sure that people will like to vote for them rather than voting for someone they don't know.I'm a bit confused.Thanks.

everyone has a chance to win, new members, old members - except staff, there is no bias here....i think ;)

Yeah, so far the results seem to indicate that new folks are getting as much rep as existing people.

I am keeping a very close eye on things however.
It is really all about creating great content since the competition started.
For many it is business as usual.

Re: OSNN, BUZZ CORPS and HP MAGIC GIVEAWAY

I am still trying to figure how some one can get 734 rep points on his first post ?? lol!

I am sorry to say that I would not be surprised if there are people who are spamming to get the rep enabled then voting with in a group, if you know what I mean. It is for this reason that I feel this stuff should be for current members only. ;)

Re: OSNN, BUZZ CORPS and HP MAGIC GIVEAWAY

interesting way to run the contest. i got a bit confused in all the details but it seems to favour members who have been around and contributing a while (rather than newbies like me). if that is the case, i say well done. that is as it should be.

best of luck to everyone, but especially to the long standing contributors at osnn!

Someone with 734 power gave them rep on a single post. Go make good posts and you too may be so lucky.

Sorry dudes, I must be blind - how do you pick a winner? Is it the person with the highest rep?

Hey EP! All good with me, applying for Microsoft MVP right now, should have done this a while ago.

Notifications don't work, I only found your response by coming back to hunt up some threads, if you want, give me your email address so we can keep in touch easier!

EP, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there!
