A Contest is Looming
The blog below was originally published in Soles of Silk's Column section. It was archived and then republished here in 2016.
As I've done for the past few years, the first update of the New Year (January 2, 2013), will feature an all new Soles of Silk Trivia Contest. For those of you who are new, or unfamiliar with the contest, I've been doing it for several years now and it gives people a chance to win free membership time in the form of seven (7) prizes. There are two (2) grand prizes of 3 month memberships and then five (5) runner up prizes of 1 month memberships. Both members and non-members are able to win the prizes.
The way the contest is scored is as follows. There are five main question groupings. The first group of questions are worth one point each. The second, two points. The third, three points. The fourth, four points. And finally, the fifth, five points. The adds up to 75 points. To make the scoring based off an even 100 points, I have a 25 point bonus question. In years past, that bonus question was an all or nothing score. This year, however, the question is a five part question and I'm awarding five points for each part of it answered correctly.
In years past, I've been surprised at the number of members to non-members entering the contest. The entries have been a majority of non-members, which is odd to me as you members have the advantage. I haven't been able to figure out ways to get more current members to enter, but to each their own. I know some people don't want to be bothered with such things.
With all that being said, I'm going to leave you members an early preview of one of the 5-Point questions below so that you may start doing some early research. The question is: Which model was featured in the first 1080p clip on the site?
Hope to see your entries come in once this contest goes live. I picked some good questions, so be ready!
