    This contest is brought to you by our BYC Sponsors: https://www.backyardchickens.com/LC-supplies.html

    We're
    having so many new members (friends) joining our family all the time that we need to start yet another contest to guess when we'll hit a magic number. Be the closest to guess the day when we'll hit 50,000 members and win a $20 BYC Store Gift Certificate. Get 2nd or 3rd best guess and win a 1 year Golden Feather Membership for you or a friend!

    We'll be accepting guesses until the end of this month, 1/31/2010. The winner will be based on the day we hit the target number of members according to Eastern Standard Time.

    Go ahead and post your guesses now. Keep in mind you can change your guess as many times as you want until the date above as long as that date is not already taken / posted by another member!

    Rules:

    • The closest guess to the actual date (either before or after) wins.
    • You can only enter the contest with ONE GUESS ENTRY!
    • If you want to lock in a specific day, post it before anybody else.
    • You can change your guess to a different day IF IT IS NOT TAKEN but if you choose another day you allow someone else to take your previous guess.
    • To change your guess: 1) Edit your first guest post AND post a new reply that you changed your guess and what your new guess is.

    Simply reply to this thread with your guess in this format:

    Month/Day/Year... kinda like this:

    BYC will have 50,000 members on 7/25/2010

    Make SURE your date is not already taken before you post it. If the date is taken, your guess will not count!

    Dates will go fast, so the members that tend to be on the forum more frequently will benefit by getting the opportunity to read and guess first. [​IMG]

    We may close the contest to guesses early, especially if all the dates that we think could be winners are taken. We'll close the contest and let members double up on guesses (they just won't be qualified to win).

    So, guess early if you're confident and want to lock in a date, or wait a few weeks to wait for changes in the new member trends.

    Oh, and most important... HAVE LOTS OF FUN!

    Is it fair to ask what the growth rate trend has been like (i.e. in one month 500 new members joined) I would like to make an educated guess
