Quick Question: Will the shipping be considered part of the 1800 or will Longevity ship the merchandise free? I don't know if you guys still do the free shipping or not and didn't know if the shipping cost needed to be taken into consideration when I place my order after I win! LOL


I am entering this contest.
I currently have 580 posts
I currently have 29 images in the gallery

In order to make it easier to tally the totals at the end of this contest please post all comments, questions, and non entry related posts here rather than in the contest thread.
I will move posts that are not entry related to this thread as I find them.

Holy crap Bluesman, I only read the part about your question, not the entry. I'm so sorry I missed that, it was not intentional. Glad you caught it and fixed my mistake though.

Hey Dan, Art just posted in the new contest thread and stated that he has 42 images in his gallery but accross from his Avatar it shows that he has 55 images. Is Art confused or am I just missing something?

Just wondering,

Aaron:
I just talked to Dan about this. The picture count I was using was the number of pictures in my personal galleries ("arandall", and "Arty's Stuff"). Apparently I must also have some pictures in the general "Longevity gallery" as well, which must account for the extras. I know during the last contest I posted some pictures which I didn't feel should qualify for the contest since they didn't really involve welding or fabricating, so I didn't put them in my personal gallery. Anyway, apparently the correct count is 55, and I'm happy with it.
Hope this clears up any confusion.

It's all good Art. I was just wondering why the numbers diddn't match. So it's good to know that any photos that go into the Longevity Image Gallery still count in our own gallery.

Hi Everyone,
Example of entry post: For example, if you have 20 posts now and will have 30 posts since the new contests starts for a total of 40 posts at the end of the contest, you will have THREE (3) entries in the raffle drawing.


Shouldn't it be 50 total posts at the end or starting with 10 posts? The math doesn't work.

A suggestion for next contest. I like the multiple entries per person idea. Something to add in besides posts and pictures might be the number of times the person has been thanked. I think it would encourage thoughtful posts.

Another thing to consider may be a max number of entries per person.

Do pictures that are in your posts count or do you have to put them in the gallery too? If so, how do I do that? All mine have come back with errors...

Gadget

They must be in the Gallery FH5. Here's a link to adding a category in the gallery. Instead of adding a category though go into members categories and post an image, it will automatically create a member gallery for you. Then you can open that gallery folder and post more images. There is a bug that says page not found but it doesn't affect the image upload.

Actually you now have one entry. The 50 number was just for an example. You get one entry for every 10 posts.

I've added 9 images and 80 something posts... That is if we still get 1 entry for every 10 posts and 1 entry for every 3 image uploads..

Any ideas? And does it work for other people?

It will be posted on Youtube but it may take a few days. I will get a snapshot of the posts and images for each entrant late tonight to allow last minute posts to count. Then I will compile a list and get it to Simon. I'll also post the list and number of entries for each person in the forum so there is no question about the results.

If you can get 10 good posts in from the time of your entry or 3 gallery images (not user album) you will get a point for entry which will put your name in the drawing. Post bumping is not allowed. By that I mean just running through all the new users in the last 6 months and just saying hi or welcome just to increase the post count.
The next drawing will give everyone one point just for entry so their name will be in the drawing at least once.
You can get an easy 5 points by posting something positive about the Longevity welders or cutters on another forum. You would have to post the link to the forum post in the sign up page for the contest to get the points.
Bottom line, not too late if you're active here. Good luck.

That gives you 10 contest points. be sure to post the purchase in the contest thread once you've entered. Let me know if you need help with the signature and avatar.
