Forum Contest Announced! Win TBS Merchandise!

I'm very pleased to announce's first ever CONTEST! The first three users who reach 500 posts -- the post count includes posts on the forums, blogs on the blog page, and comments on the website -- will receive a single product of their choice from the official store, up to $25 not including shipping.

To participate in this contest, users must respect the following rules:

1. Users must obey the rules of the forum. This includes no spamming -- whether in the form of solicitations, the spread of pornographic material, or obviously useless posts intended to increase one's post count. If you have any questions about this, please ask me.

2. The contest is open to anyone that the store will ship to, including international users. HOWEVER, I am only agreeing to paying U.S. shipping costs; if international shipping costs are too excessive for me to cover, I reserve the right to ask the user to cover shipping costs over the standard U.S. shipping cost (such as by sending me money through PayPal). (In that scenario, an international user could also choose to have the product sent to someone else in the U.S. who could then ship the product to them.) If you have any questions about this, please ask me.

3. Once reaching 500 posts, the user must CREATE A POST IN THIS THREAD to claim their prize. That way there will be no disputes about who reached 500 posts first. If you reach 500 posts but don't post in this thread and someone else posts here before you, well, sorry; rules are rules!

4. I reserve the right to add to these rules at any time (but I don't expect to do that, and don't worry, I'm not going to screw anyone over). Users are responsible for checking back with this thread and making sure they're following the rules of the contest.

And that's it! I wish everyone the best of luck in this contest, and thanks in advance for your participation!

YAY finally a contest that people outside the US can enter :)

By the way, if you like to see contests like these, be sure to click on any ads that interest you as you surf through the website. I know ads suck, but all advertising revenue will go toward paying hosting fees and, with the money left over, sponsoring contests like these.

(It's kind of funny, actually - Google sends out checks for every $100 you accrue. For three or four years now, I've had $95 in the account, but I haven't had a website during that time, so the money has just been sitting there. Hopefully soon I'll finally get the money, and I'll be able to use that money for this contest :).
