COMPETITION: Guess Date of 20,000th Post

Postby Son of a Beach » Fri 26 Jun, 2009 8:42 pm

It's time for our next competition, which will run along similar lines to the last one. This time you need to guess the date that our 20,000th post will be submitted to the forums.

The prize for this competition will be from Macpac (thanks to blacksheep).

To enter simply send an email to: post20000@tasmania.bushwalk.com including:
  • your forums name
  • the date that you think the 20,000th post will be sumitted to the forums

Please do not include any other information in the email message (simpler email messages will be easier to sort through when determining the winner). So the body of the email you send should look similar to this (except with your own forums name and your own guess):
Brass Monkey
1st March 2009


The current number of posts is well over 19,000, and I expect that we'll reach 20,000 some time between 14 and 140 days, but I may be wrong (that's merely a stab in the dark based on no calculations or formulas).

Note that this competition will remain open until the 20,000th post is submitted. During that time, the total post count has been removed from the statistics section on the index page. Anyone who is found (or suspected) to be attempting to determine the current post count by illegitimate means or by means against the spirit of the competition will be disqualified.

Only one entry per person is permitted. Any subsequent entries will be ignored (only the first entry per person will be accepted).

Congratulations to ILUVSWTAS for having the closest guess. We ticked over 20,000 posts just before midnight last night (12th July 2009).

I'll check with blacksheep to confirm the details. Don't forget to send me your postal address (if you haven't already - I haven't checked email yet today).

I believe the prize is to be a merino top and merino beanie. Sounds good to me! Thanks to blacksheep and to the Hobart MacPac store for supplying the prize.

Did ILSWT make the last 500 posts? From 19500-20000 :lol:
Well done ILSWT.
From a more 'wet blanket' side, I really think that the prize (what it is) for these things needs to be 'declared' while the comp is open? (no i didn't have a guess..)

Nuts... I know what you mean, and I apologise for this. This competition was a real last minute thing, suggested by a forum member, and we had a very short time to get the competition up and running before the 20,000th post came in. The whole thing was a bit rushed this time around.

So ILUVSWTAS - What did you end up getting? Any more details?

Did you go into the shop to pick them up? What's it like... I haven't been to Hobart since it opened.

OK - post your guess to this topic, and you'll have a very high chance of winning a warm fuzzy feeling of getting it right.

My guess is about 5 minutes ago. (I'm feeling warm and fuzzy already).
