Help TWF help YOU!

We've got some goodies to give away and we're looking for a new and creative way to facilitate that. Something that doesn't require a lot of time to administer and something where it's not easy to cheat.

Ideally, everyone would have equal opportunity to win. If you've been around, you know what we've done in the past to give away "stuff".

Throw your ideas out there, I'm anxious to give away goodies!

Here's one. Whoever is the fourth post in this thread gets a helmet.

But seriously, I'll think of some.

When you say "everybody" and "equal chance" does that count those who are registered, and log-in, but only lurke? Or are we talking "everybody" who contributes (eg. Posts).

Is there a way to figure out the ratio of a user's reputation points to posts? either given or recieved? you'd have to do a lower limit of like users with over 50 posts or something but...

I have two ideas on forums I've ran in the past.

One is a post challenge, here's the rules...
The last poster to THIS THREAD will be declared the winner!

What determines the last poster is how much time goes by between posts. It will start at 1 hour between posts. So if 1 hour goes by without someone posting and you were the last post then you win! The time frame will get shorter over time!

To start with! - 1 hour without a post (Current)
Week 2 - 30 mins without a post
Week 3 - 15 mins without a post
Week 4 - 5 mins without a post
Week 5 - 1 min without a post - Until we have a winner! (The times on this thread will settle any dispute.)

The weeks official start on Mondays.

Week 2 starts 07/24/06 at 00:00:01
Week 3 starts 07/31/06 at 00:00:01
Week 4 starts 08/07/06 at 00:00:01
Week 5 starts 08/14/06 at 00:00:01
(You could days as well to make it a shorter time table.)

When the contest gets down to minutes there will need to be +1 added so that the full time frame passes. For instance if 1 minute must pass then actually 2 will show for a winner and so on. Another example would be if 5 minutes has to pass then a difference of 6 minutes actually need to be reflected.

Seond Idea... A Photo Scavenger Hunt

The contest will be a photo scavenger hunt, involving 3 different images to be found.PLEASE REMEMBER to post 3 seperate images,do not post all three items in one image or your entry will be void. At least ONE of the images Must include some sort of proof that you took it (Perhaps a sign saying TWF, your username on a piece of paper, etc). This will be your entry into the contest, which will be a RANDOM DRAWING from all the entries in the contest thread.

So there's some ideas let me know what you guys think

I believe we hid photos for that, no? We just gave away some T-shirts using that method.
