    UPDATE: vfem was the winner with the guess of 6/22/09!!!

    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 35,000 members and win a 1 year Golden Feather Membership for you or a friend!

    We'll be accepting guesses until the end of this month, 5/31/09. The winner will be based on the number of members at 12:00 AM Eastern Standard Time.

    Go ahead and post your guesses now. Keep in mind you can edit 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!


    • 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 edit 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.

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

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

    BYC will have 35,000 members on 7/25/09

    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 see if you see a change in the new member trends.

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