    Hello all! I've set up my website and recently got a generous donation from someone I helped find a job, and decided to run a huge contest promoting my forum/website. (URL is at the bottom of the post).

    The contest will be a posting contest. However, there will be strict rules that you must follow in order to win.

    #####################

    Rules:

    - Invite/Refer a MINIMUM of 5 other people (all they have to do is register, they don't have to post more than once). You will create a thread in the "introductions" section as: 'YOURNAMEHERE' 's referring thread. The people who you refer will have to post on that thread confirming that they have been referred by you.
    - Write informative posts/replies


    The contest will run on a "point" system:

    - Each post equals 1 point
    - Each karma/reputation 'point' equals 1 point (I monitor ALL exchanges of karma, I will review them before I decide the winners. Whoever has given someone a negative karma will be disqualified. Contest participants can only give positive karma, or none at all)
    - Each referral equals 10 points
    - Each blog post (emailed to admin@ourislamic.com) is 100 points. The post must be related to Islam, the world, OR doing good deeds.
    - Each blog comment is 1 point.
    #####################

    Please do not register on the forum with the same name that you have on the forum. I don't want anyone to know who the other contest participants are.

    Prizes:

    1st Place GRAND Prize: $600

    2nd Place Runner-Up Prize: $250

    3rd Place Prize: $150


    All payments are sent to you through Paypal or Western Union (if those methods are a problem for you, please let me know.


    URL of the forum: Our Islamic .COM
    Forum Posts DO NOT have to be related to Islam, as I know some non-Muslims will be interested in participating in the contest. (Please just post in the appropriate category).

    Please ask any other questions that you have. You must post here that you are participating and then send me a PM with the user name that you registered on the forum.

    Thanks :)

    I've been looking into that. I've been writing many articles regarding the internet and information for webmasters (especially for masterweb), but I don't have any previous work (besides my own posts) in the same niche as my site. So, I think I'll have to write some free articles first (that's how I got started with some content writing jobs I have currently).

    Right now, I'm really trying to fill up the forum while retaining SOME members from this contest.

    I actually meant you should pay for some posts ( about your competition ) on other related high traffic blogs to get some good coverage, there is nothing worse that having a competition and not having enough members join the competition to warrant the high prize

    Ohhh. Yeah, I'll see if I can get someone to do that. Currently, I'm posting it on most forums which I think have a mature audience (the last thing I want is some immature man-child, :p lol, ruining the contest.

    I've also been commenting on blogs (VERY subtly, in order to not look like I'm spamming).

    By the way, if anyone refers someone else who wins (and they are NOT participating in the contest) I will send them 10% of what the person they referred won (not 10% out of that person's winnings, but a separate amount).
