    To end the 2012 Holiday season with a bang, I am starting this Grand Prize Lottery thread. To win, your join date on MilePoint must match the randomly drawn date on January 1, 2013 (month and day only need to match, not year). Entries received after midnight on January 1st forum time are not eligible for the lottery. The winner will receive a one-time payment of $50.00 USD via Amazon Payments (or PayPal if you don't want to sign up for AP). Should there be more than one winner, the prize will be split evenly amongst the winners. One post per person please.

    RULE AMENDMENT: If there are more than two winners of this grand prize, those winners will be required to post exactly the following:

    "I'm almost a winner of the 2012 Holiday Grand Prize Lottery sponsored by malikguy!!"

    There will be two winners regardless of the amount of winners above and beyond two. Of the winners that post the previous statement, two random numbers will be drawn until there are two winners of the Grand Prize Lottery of which the numbers drawn match the posting numbers.

    Additionally, if a date is drawn and there is no winner, dates will continue to be drawn until there is a winner.

    Please post in the following format:

    Comment (Optional)
    Join date: MM/DD/YYYY

    Example (italics not necessary):

    Happy New Year!!
    Join date: 11/15/2010

    Please remember why we celebrate the Holidays and pass on the generosity as I have to the MilePoint community and give to others as you would receive from them. This is what makes the world a better place! We are all different races and religions and we all have different beliefs, but we are all here for the same reasons, so I leave you with this:

    "Do not do unto others as you would that they should do unto you. Their tastes may not be the same"

    Happy Holidays, Happy New Year and the best of luck!!

    True.

    I believe during the 1st week of MP's "opening" in February 2011, there were hundreds, if not thousand, of folks signing up daily, especially during the first 3 days, aka Feb 5th, 6th and 7th. If this grand prize is going to be divided among those "earlier birds" when winning, people will only get pennies. It would be very funny that your nice gesture of a grand prize would end up much less than other single GC giveaway when claimed individually. :eek:

    I would think whoever is the winner, s/he would prefer a single payment of $50 winning prize. So, would you consider to revise the rules so this $50 AP/Paypal will go to a single winner? Something like a 2-stage drawing, 1st stage to go by the join date, then the 2nd and final drawing will be a random number selected among the same chosen join date? I do believe a $50 prize will be more useful than a say $5cent AP. ;)

    Nevertheless, you good will is much appreciated.

    ETA: I thought the earliest possible join date was Feb 5, 2011 (per Randy's Time). Not sure how we got to see some Feb 4, 2011 here. Perhaps OP would have to specify which clock he goes by since MPers are from all over the world and the join date may appear globally and differently.

    To be clear, you must post in this thread to be eligible. ;)
    I think this is a good idea. I will modify the rules. :cool:
