    OK FC membership, December is the month to be merry and spread cheer among our fellow humans. So in an effort to spread some happiness and joy to the FC membership I, Photorider am going to host a contest each week in December, with first, second and third prizes to the winners. Each prize is 100% free, you only pay actual shipping and that will be worked out after the contest between the winners and myself.

    Each contest will follow the exact same rules, but will have a different actual contest item, with different prizes. The prizes are displayed as Prize A, Prize B and Prize C. The winner i.e. first, gets their choice, second gets next choice and third receives what is left. Every prize has both flower and oil attachments of some type. Images of each item are shown in the contest page. If you are a winner and really don’t want the item you are allowed to PLAY-IT-FORWARD to another member. You simply work it out with whoever and PM me. However, the member still must meet the minimum trophy value as defined below and in each auction.

    Each contest will start at Midnight PST on the start date, and it will end on Midnight PST on the end date plus 1 for full 7 days. The contests date ranges are:

    1. December 1st through December 7th.

    2. December 8th through December 14th

    3. December 15th through December 21st

    4. December 22nd through December 28th

    Each FC member is allowed only one entry per contest; if you rebid aka change your mind because of someone else’s post (and repost) you are disqualified from the contest. Please be fair to everyone.

    There is a minimum trophy points for each member to quality to enter the contest. This is to play it forward to members that provide benefit to these forums and are actual participants in them. It is the simplest metric to measure this value.

    The minimum trophy point to enter for week 1 is 35 trophy points.

    The rules to determine who is first or second or third are as follows.

    1. If the contest item is to bid a number of some type i.e. weight, quantity etc.

    a. First is the closest bid without going over the actual value

    b. Second is the next closest bid without going over.

    c. Third is the next closest bid (excluding first and second) to the actual value. It can be above for below the actual value.

    Example:

    Contest 1: guess the weight, which the actual value is 29 OZ.
    Person A: guess 30
    Person B: guess 28
    Person C: guess 26
    Person D: guess 27
    Person E: guess 25

    1st: person B, second person D, 3rd: person A (closer that C and E, but since it was over can’t win 1 or 2).


    2. If the contest is a text response (only the last auction is like this) – I determine the winners because I only know the answer and it is not black or white. Also there will be criteria stated in Contest 4 on how each winner is determined by different questions of the item on display. In other words, its three questions about the item.



    OK Contest for the first week of December….

    CONTEST #1

    The contest is to guess the weight of the colored material inside this pipe. The value needs to be in ounces (oz). Sorry for the metric people, but the internet is your friend.

    I hope that PhotoRider's stunning generosity inspires you as it has me.

    @PhotoRider It was a pleasure working with you in dreaming up these contests. Thank you for being such a positive force in this community!

    If all is working correctly, members with at least 35 trophy points should be able to post in this section/thread. A lot of effort went into this, so please be sure to carefully review all the rules before posting.

    Good luck. :)

    I am going to pass on this round and give newer members with less trophy points a chance to win some stunning glass.

    @PhotoRider , your generosity is absolutely flooring. Here's wishing you the happiest of holidays.

    I said it before and I'll say it again, FC is a very special place with some very special people. This type of generosity is inspiring.

    Thank you for reminding me, Vtac, but I did think about that and the thrill of the actual win is something I don't want to take away from anyone. Even though it is a small chance, it's a chance I'd rather a newer member gets. Winning something like this as a new member would be so awesome. It might make someone want to start a contest of their own. We can pay it forward all year round.
