Contest Rules

Hey Infobarrelers!

We are one month into 2010 and the site is off to a roaring start! Thanks to everyone that participated in last month's contest and put their minds to making the world a bit greener. Now its February, and to everyone here in Vancouver that means one thing, the Olympics.

With the opening ceremonies to the Vancouver 2010 Winter Olympics on February 12th, less than 2 weeks away, I though we should do this month's contest on the Olympic and Paralympic games. So we invite everyone to write articles on whatever strikes their fancy about the Olympics. Whether it's the origin of the Olympics, a biography on your favorite Olympian, or how to bobsled, as long as its Olympic related we'll be giving out those percentage points. Also, we'll be keeping up with the holiday themed articles, like Valentine's day, Easter or any other holiday that strikes your fancy.
So to sum up, You will get a 1% increase on your ad share for the month March 2010 for every Olympic or holiday themed article written this month, up to a maximum increase of 5%. You will also get a 5% increase for getting over 20 points and another 5% for getting over 30 points, giving you a maximum ad share of 90%! Oh, and the writer with the highest point totals will get a $100 Amazon gift card, the second highest gets a $50 Amazon gift card and the third highest gets a $25 Amazon gift card.

So here is the deal, each article will still be worth 1 point for 500+ words, 2 points for 800+ words and 5 points for 1000+ words.

After you have completed your articles we ask that you send us an email (via the Contact Us page) with the titles of your holiday articles so that we can verify them and give you your ad share in February. Please try to send only one email as the more emails we receive the longer it is going to take us to read them all.

Prizes:
Member with the most points - $100 Amazon.com gift card
Member with the second most points - $50 Amazon.com gift card
Member with the third most points - $25 Amazon.com gift card
Achieve more than 30 points - 85% Adsense Share
Achieve more than 20 points - 80% Adsense Share
For every holiday themed article written receive an extra 1% Adsense Share, up to a maximum of 5%.

How do Points Work?
1 Point - 500+ Words
2 Points - 800+ Words
5 Points - 1000+ words

You MUST email us your holiday themed article titles by the end of March 1, 2010 for them to count.

Any questions, please email us via the Contact Us page.
Note: All articles involved in the contest must remain on the site in order to qualify for the prizes. If articles are removed they will not be counted towards your point totals.
