Win prizes by posting your questions or solutions to the CogKnowHow Forum!

CogKnowHow.com is celebrating it 1st anniversary in may 2010
I have come up with a contest for all registered members, where you can win some cool prizes!

The contest is actually very simple… :wink:

The 3 members who post the most (useful) articles during the contest, WINS !!! In this period you may post as many questions and error code solutions as you like!
The contest starts on 1st of may and runs the whole month and the best part… ANYONE can win!! It doesn’t favor anyone more than another. Everyone has an equal opportunity to win one of the prizes, Beginner, newbie, expert… it doesn’t matter
So everyone starts this contest with 0 posts. I send you all on day 1 or 2 of the contest the start values (may 1st) of all users. When the contest has ended another snap-shot is taken of the post counters of all members. The initial post values of users who have already posted something before the contest are subtracted to get the end result. During the contest you can watch the real time post counters here: http://www.cogknowhow.com/forum/index.php?action=mlist;sort=posts;start=0
