        Hey [MENTION=2]Paul G[/MENTION], give us a contest that is full of chance, and I'm all over it.

        If it involves gambling, that's an improvement.

        If it involves someone getting knocked out in the second round, I'm ringside.

        Unfortunately, posting numbers just to post makes it easy for people to keep track of how many posts, but no one will read them...also the activity is all surrounding one thread...which actually takes away from the entire site.

        Here's an idea for the next contest. Give a sweepstakes ticket for people who post in ALL subsections in Powwows...not just a post, but they have to quote someone and write something meaningful (not a number) OR write a meaningful question if they don't know anything about beading or how to chicken dance. Then each time someone goes and posts in all subsections, they get a "ticket."

        This will bring people into areas that they have never posted in before and expose them to more of the site.

        Each ticket from making the rounds enters them in the drawing for prizes. So each time someone posts something meaningful in all subsections of Powwows, they get a virtual ticket into the contest. The more tickets, the better the chances of winning.

        So those who rely on chance (people like me), and people who want to work hard (people not like me) actually fulfill a goal of the site and that is for more meaningful participation.

        Just a suggestion.

              Love the idea.

              The posting contest is just for fun. Some of the people here really enjoy them.

              For your idea, how could I track all the activity?

                Easy. Make participants submit their post numbers for a ticket, they put down the # of the post in the thread. Like this is #8...you can make a template with the thread titles, and the participant just records the number on the template. When the sections are all full, they submit the template and get a virtual ticket which you store in your magic server until drawing time. :)

                Wow, I'm surprised, I actually have 10 posts in there? That's amazing.

                  I'm still a little confused. Show me what you mean by template?

                        Paul how often will you show the number of user posts? That is a good idea.

                          Well, the template would be a page with a listing of all the current thread titles (not going back to really old ones) under each subcategory. So under Powwow Talk, let's pick on Amigo K and the Template would look like

                          POW WOW TALK
                          -2013 Powwow Trail
                          -Arizona Powwows and Beyond..... #990
                          -Gathering of Nations

                          Now since Amigo K was #990, he fills that in on the template. Then he fills in each number for each category, then he hits a submit button at the bottom of the page.

                          I could make a pic of what I'm talking about. You have participants CLAIM their post so you don't need a big expensive program to track it all. Each # can easily be verified if necessary, but I think most here would be honest. :)

                          Let me know if a pic of a possible template would be helpful...I could make one up. I wish muskrat_skull was around tonight, she used to do this type of stuff for a living. She's back in a few days. She'd be able to set up the template, I'll bet. It's rather simple in design and people just type in their post numbers before submitting for a ticket.

                          She knows how to code stuff like that so you have a template.

                                Ok, considering all of the drama associated w/ the tabluation @ Sycuan, and that other dance w/ the jacked up drum contest w/ an 8-way tie, and some other goofy stuff I heard about people winning in like 3 different categories at a dance in central TX.........

                                Why don't we all post contest...

                                Hope this is a fun contest for everyone!

                                Here's how it is going to work.

                                At different times during the summer I'll post a thread in Chit Chat to start the contest. The person to post the 250th post in that thread wins.

                                So what will your strategy be? Try...
