We will be holding a contest on General Talk to mark the 2nd anniversary of General Talk since it was first launched.

General Talk has over 9,800+ posts and 350+ members. We have made a steady progress since General Talk relaunched early this year. To mark the 2nd anniversary of the forum and also to boost the growth of the forum and the community we will be holding a contest.

Contest Information
The contest will run for 3 weeks from Friday 10th(12am BST) to Friday 31st of August 2012 (9pm BST), it's a posting contest however it will be measured by how much GT Cash each member gains throughout the period.

We will record how much GT Cash each member has at the start of the contest and compare that to the end of the contest and whichever member that has gained the most GT Cash will win.

The Prizes
Winner: $40 cash via PayPal, 250 GT Cash
2nd place: $20 cash via PayPal, 200 GT Cash
3rd place: $10 cash via PayPal, 150 GT Cash

Rules
1. All members are eligible for contest with the exception of the Administrators.
2. If you make several posts of poor quality (i.e one word posts) you may be disqualified from the contest.
3. The contest is based on the amount of GT Cash that is gained by each member.
4. Any GT Cash transactions between members is prohibited during the contest.
5. During the contest, you will not be able to request the PayPal for GT Cash.
6. Bumping topics where the last reply was more than 3 months ago, will results in a warning and continuation of this will mean disqualification from the contest.

Although this is a posting contest, it is based on GT Cash. You receive 2.5 GT Cash per post and 5 GT Cash per topic, slightly less in Forum Pass Time and Introductions forum.

We were going to hold a regular posting contest but the idea of having it based on GT Cash, I did get from Top Admin.

Just 3 days to go before the contest starts.

@radon - There is no daily post limit. However spam posts will not count and if they continue, this will result in a warning and disqualification from the contest.

I'm guessing you recorded the amounts of GT cash that each member had?

I'll look to post a leaderboard in a day or two.

Sorry for the inconvenience, it's because everything is done manually with recording the GT Cash and doing the leaderboard and when there are 350+ members it could take a bit of time.
