Contest: Win $ 10

Post  dctim on Wed Jul 16, 2014 9:30 am

It has been awhile since I sponsored a contest, so here goes.

Pick the closest date when I will get a hit in my 75th new Zip Code for 2014. If there is a tie on a particular day, the first person who posts in this thread is the winner.

Currently at 66 Zips (July 14).

Contest remains open until I get Zip # 73.

I will update this thread whenever I get a new Zip from this point forward.

Ya know...not a huge issue...BUT...it seems to me all guesses ought to be submitted by PM ONLY...so that later entrants in the game can't "bastard bid" you by going one day under your guess or one day over your guess.

The official guesses should then be posted publicly ONLY AFTER all future entries are closed.

That way, nobody gets an advantage seeing what others are guessing first.

Looking more and more to me like Dave has this one won.

But, seriously, we should consider...for future contests...keeping bids secret until bids are closed.

BTW, I do NOT think Dave "bastard bid" me on this one...but it occurred to me that someone COULD.

Meh. It was for fun in any case. Plus, there is still time for someone else to enter and beat both of you. I'll consider PM bids should I do something similar in the future.

Nah, just did a mental average of the hits he had posted... Very Happy

That's the same thing I did.

Looks like your mental average might be closer.

It just occurred to me that such could happen, so bids like this ought to be secret bids, just so there's no hard feelings later.

I know you didn't do me that way, Dave. Hope ya win!

Zip # 72 - 7/25/2014  3:02 AM

Perhaps because it is summer, my hit rate has crept up a bit lately. Most of 2014 has been a disappointment for me hit wise.

Nice and congrats!

Go ahead and send the winnings to Markus.

Thanks for hosting the contest.

Hopefully we can get more participants to make it interesting next time... Very Happy

Agreed.

Not much fun when there's only two participants.

I would have told you to send it along to Markus, too.
So I'm glad to see that happen.

I DO wish Markus still took paypal though. It was a lot easier to contribute to the site that way.
