The contest thread can be found here: ´╗┐Friends 34

The contest started on August 23rd

You may use this thread for the general discussion of the contest.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

// Ignore the remaining part of this thread

The concept is simple. There will be a new puzzle everyday, mostly but not necessarily related to blogging. It might be a jumbled word, a quiz question, a crossword puzzle or some other thing. And each question carries a fixed number of points. The first user to answer it correctly gets those points.

Some questions can have unlimited numbers of answers. For such questions, everyone who gives an answer will be credited with points.

The one who accumulates the maximum number of points at the end of 34 days will be declared as the winner.

 

Prizes:

Rs 250 gift voucher for the top scorer

Text link for a period of 30 days on  A light hearted talk for the top 5 scorers

A collage (or something similar) which would contain the profile images and signatures of as many Indimembers as possible will be given to the top  5 scorers

 

Schedule:

'Friends 34' starts on August 9th.

Is this something that you are wishing to host on your blog, Ranjith?

Ranjith

I am ready but "winner will get nothing"??.  Come on, Ranjith, try and arrange some prize :)

Ranjith

Let's discuss about it.

abhin@v

ah, I thought this was for your blog. Usually  blogs have 'give aways'  to ensure greater participation, a nice marketing strategy. No need if its for indiblogger. :)

abhin@v

I have a suggestion. Instead of cash prize you can give the winner the title of "Smartest blogger" or something like that.

Ranjith
from hyderabad

Good suggestion. We'll take even that into consideration.

Coming to the prize, ( as suggested by abhi)I will, on my behalf give a gift voucher of Rs 250 redeemable at one of these stores :

  • Big Bazaar
  • Pantaloons
  • Planet M
  • Sodexho
  • Cafe Coffee Day

Who else is realy to sponsor a prize, even a small prize of Rs100 will do.

Figured it outby googling it. CCD = Cafe Coffee Day

However, it can mean 27 other things too. Smile Check out here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/CCD

You can sponsor in another way too by giving free ad space (text link or image ) on your blog for a month or as long as you wish.

Ranjith

Anyone willing to sponsor in this way (text or image links) ?

Hello dear Ranjith i liked your idea of contest without prize money, you can always make a virtual gift of a car in picture etc, and a certificate rather than giving cash. I have been in other forums wherein contest winners are given virtual points. So it will be in order, let us not have a rat race. Let us have pure fun.

Thinking about a virtual gift as suggested by umesh:

The top scorers would be gifted with a collage of as many IndiBloggers as possible which includes profile pictures, signatures and messages. 

The collage might look something like the one put up on Mohini's blog here: http://narayankripa.blogspot.com/2011/06/awards-of-love-pt-3.html

I too would like to participate. And talking about free ad space, i be honoured if i can sponsor it. But i would like to make it clear that my blog is technological related and now recives 750-800 visitors daily so i can't say whether anybody wants his ads on my blog. but i would be willing to offer a 1 month 100x100 graphic ad to the winner after 100 days.

Ranjith

Thanks Mayur. I will be preparing that list in a few days.

Anyone would be glad to have a free ad space on a blog with 750-800 daily visitors.

How about this - The winner gets his/her 3 posts (the choice of the winner) which are stumbled, dugg, tweeted, facebook liked and google plus 1... Its a very good prize, plus no money involved... Even 5 people do it then the blog will get massive traffic...
Ranjith
