Well, things are looking good for DrKen here. But we all know it ain't over until it's over. Still a few hours left for the stragglers to try and make a run. I will post final results in the morning.

Thanks for the extra chance Webman. Any chance you'll do it again in May?

That's what I was thinking, as well. After all, you did say it was fun for you.

Yes, I think we should do it again. There are some regulars who didn't get in who I would love to see in there. I also want to adjust the rules a bit... for instance, to qualify I think you should have at least 10 forum posts to your name before the end of the month (not new posts, total posts). That's a fairly low bar but would at least ensure some level of forum participation. People who participated last month are only a couple posts away from that now any way and it would be great to have everyone back.

I feel like the rest of the rules came together pretty well. Maybe a slightly earlier cut-off for eligible entries?

Any other feedback before I set up the next contest?

I think the cut-off date is good; it looks like there we barely had enough (10 or more) that played all sessions in order for the contest to not be voided. I will make sure I play all sessions this month.

Special add-on to the Monthly Contest for forum participants:

The highest score of a confirmed forum participant will receive one free year of Gold membership and a merchandise package.

You will of course also win the standard contest prize if you finish in the top 10 overall.

Forum contest void if less than 10 people participate fully (playing all qualifying sessions).
Webman, thanks for the contest. I must have misinterpreted the top 10 prizes wording. I assumed the top 10 monthly contest prizes were being applied to the 1st-10th finishers (the usual forum participants).
