Marc will become famous soon enough
Default The Sports Central GOLDEN TICKET CONTEST

Just had an idea. What if I were to run a contest where several members would be given cash/gift certificate prizes each month? Based on the "Charlie and the Chocolate Factory" model, say three members at random would be awarded prizes each month. So the more you post, the greater your chance to win. Your thoughts?

Honestly Marc, you don't have enough members to make this remotely interesting. Toby, Doug, Anthony, catman and doublee are pretty much the only posters still making at least 2-3 posts per day regarding sports in here. And 3 of those guys are your mods.

Sounds fine to me. Although we don't have a ton of people at the moment, if you could find a way to bring in traffic during the contest, it would probably get a lot of new people to register.

I think that's the point of why I'm not a fan of it. The idea does little to nothing in terms of bringing in new blood.
