    Since I have projects from the last contest being 1 through 6, should I start my project count at 7 or at 1 again?

    I would state spring contest project 1 so there would be no confusion, thats my 2 cents.

    Think I'm going to enter the contest and have some questions, they are probably a little dumb.

    Besides my avatar and sig line I need to pick 5 of the 7 welding project categories? Provided I get 100 posts in once I enter, and that counts as one entry?

    In other words I can't just get the posts and build a welding table to enter.

    That sound right?

    You need the 100 posts to enter and then any additional entries count as extra. So 100 posts = 1 entry (required) and then a project in any of the designated areas also = 1 additional entry...

    Oh well that kinda sucks. Guess I'll just start a project thread so I can get my post count up.. Then I'll make one or two for the contest.

    I thought you just had to get 100 posts during the contest.

    Right- 100 posts is the valve that opens to make the other entries count. You can post projects (1 each in up to 5 of 7 possible categories) and those posts count towards the 100, but if you don't achieve 100 then you have not qualified and none of the projects or other entries (detailed below) count.

    This contest also allows passing posts along to Facebook and Twitter friends, max of 1 per week for a max of 5 entries.

    In the end you could have as many as 12 entries:
    1 for 100 posts
    5 projects
    5 FB/twitter "shares"
    1 "like" on facebook

    Man, I still didn't get, I swear my head is thick sometimes.... I read through the peolpe enterd in saw a lot of folks well under 100 and it got me thinking.

    So I can enter the contest now with my 40 posts? I'll need to get to 140 posts to qualify and 240 would get me another entry? I got it now right?

    you need 100 posts during teh contest to be entered once.

    In ADDITION to the 100 post entry, you can add projects, likes, tweets, chirps, barks, whatever, to get additional entries.

    100 posts gets you in the game, the others just add more entries.

    Yea I know sometimes you can see it 2 different ways. You need to post at least 100 times during the contest. After you have signed up with your current post count. That will give you one chance in the drawing, and a 25% discount. Then you get another chance for each of the other things mentioned.

    You can do all the other projects and shares, they will get you more chances at the drawing. But if you don't make 100 posts by the time the contest ends (during the contest) you don't get in the drawing.

    BTW if you post 100 more times it does not get you anything else. And they don't want you posting crap (one liners) just to get your post count up.

    Hope that is clearer.

    Yeah that helps! So I almost had it right expect for the extra 100 posts do not count as an additional entry. I hate those short nothing posts too so that's not even a problem for me.

    I'll get entered in the contest, get my 250EX today! I might just I open her up right there and put her to work on some stainless tubing.

    I'm going to go gang busters on this contest! I'll have 5 projects in no time, I'm just not a social media guy.

    Something I have seen lately with this latest contest, guys, that's bothersome is some people making multiple posts one right after the other, instead of just editing the previous post with the new information to keep the clutter down.

    I hate to be "the guy" that makes it harder for folks to qualify for the contest but, posting multiple times one right after the other instead of just "editing" your old post to add the new information, just makes it harder to read the thread and necessary to load more pages and spend time scrolling around to find useful information in the thread. It seemed to start out as just one or two people doing it, and now I've seen many people doing it. I don't like the direction this is taking the forum with pages of low-quality posts to sift through. Low-quality posts meaning posts with very little information in them.

    Therefore, I would suggest that we adopt a rule of "edit your last post in a thread to add new info, rather than making a new post". The exception should be where the thread is so old that it needs bumping so people see your post. If the last post on a thread is just a day old, it doesn't need bumping because most people don't check the forum that often.

    Making multiple post one after another in the same thread, minutes apart from each other, needlessly clutters the forum IMO. OK I'll get off the stump now, thanks for listening.

    I agree, and more people should use the multi-quote when replying to multiple posts.

    I’m guilty of that mostly when posting my art … it was never my intention of creating any issues … I’ll admit I am trying to get to that magic 100 mark so I can afford to buy a new welder. I’m new to this forum and not quite sure about protocol … again I apologize for my transgression.

    When posting projects with pictures, is there an unspoken picture count per post? I am used to forums where they prefer that you break up lots of pictures over a few posts rather than one jumbo sized post. I would think with the thumbnail system in use here, that would not be a problem, but I figured I should ask.

    Doesn't matter, a browser is going to load the whole page anyway. Thumbnails keep the pages loading fast.

    No, we'd rather you post 5 per post if possible. That keeps from "inflating" post counts. We have to sometimes edit "down" a persons posts count because of "spamming"...writing a one or two sentence post with guys saying : cool post, nice job etc....The one post per picture is akin to the same thing. We want "meaty" posts, that someone can post from. Why make 2 posts when one good one can do?
