    I thought the same at first but, without this promotion, I wouldn't have got over my embarrassment about posting my photos (which are in the shadows compared to all you guys). My point being that this promotion encouraged me to post that which I might not otherwise have posted.

    As it turned out, the "five photos and ten posts" critera is easily achievable without "just posting for the sake of it". There's plenty here to comment on or discuss and, if there's nothing to suit your taste, you can always post a topic of your own.

      Well something must have worked as we had our busiest day (yesterday) in terms of members logging in since August 2008

      We also had more new threads started in one day since May 2011, and more new posts in one day since the forum opened in September 2006

      We also had 231 images uploaded to the gallery yesterday - about 10x more than usual.

      I'd really like to build on this - there were so many interesting images and comments and discussions and it's all down to you

      The prize draw will take place later today and I will announce the winner before the end of the day.

              OK - to put you out of your misery, it's Tom Holle who won. I haven't heard back from him but I will post a full announcement when I have heard back from him.

              Commiserations to the rest who were unlucky, but I do have some more rewards to distribute during November, so there is some hope yet for you

                    No need for commiserations, it was great to be in with a chance in the first place! Also, the competition provided a lot of interest and created significantly more activity on the forum, so in that respect we are all winners!However, special congratulation to Tom and a big thank you to Ian and Olympus

                              Gutted it wasn't me, but congrats to the winner! Enjoy!

                              It worked inasmuch as I've come back to the forum and will check in at least weekly; schedule permitting.
