    Welcome to the 11th Annual Christmas Day Contest!

    This Contest is being sponsored by the one... the only... the REALLY BIG BEARDED....

    RTBs' very own... Jeff Ronne, Sr. ... known by many other names, but best known globally as...

    The Boaphile
    !

    Be sure to let [MENTION=539]The_Boaphile[/MENTION] know you appreciate him and his continuous contribution to RTB!


    Information
    IMPORTANT:
    This contest will run until the end of December,
    so start your daily voting now.

    We will call this a Sponsor's Choice contest. Jeff might announce the contest prize at his discretion OR he might just keep you guessing until the lucky winner is declared, so stand-by and enjoy the anticipation.

    Anyone can vote, but the winner must be a member in good standing with the RedTailBoas.com Staff and Administrators. Remember, the more active you are the more chances you have to vote.

    This is a 100 number matrix contest, so please place votes with numbers from 1 to 100 and make sure you read the following information to understand the rules of the contest.

    All voting is done in this thread.

    Start your voting and good luck!

    WARNING
    REMEMBER:
    Any non-voting posts will be deleted.
    Any posts that violate the rules of this contest will be deleted.
    Be sure to read and understand the rules of the contest.

    Here are the contest standard rules:

    This contest is part of RedTailBoas.com member appreciation.
    FREE Vote Participants must be registered and active members of the RedTailBoas.com forum.

    Rules of this contest:
    1) There will be approximately 32 days in the contest.
    2) The contest will consist of a 100 number matrix (numbers 1-100).
    -- Important - vote with a number not a word.
    -- The search is for the number (numerical) only.
    -- Words will be ignored. Example: Vote 15 not fifteen.
    3) Every day, each member can vote for ONE number.
    4) Members should vote for a unique number each day. Members cannot edit posts so make sure it is correct.
    5) The built in forum date and time stamps are the only guidelines to determine day/time of entries.
    6) It is the members responsibility to ensure votes are unique to the date entered.
    7) Maximum votes for any one member during this contest will be 32.
    8) All votes must be in this thread. Any PMs, Shouts, other posts, or any other forms of communication will not count.
    9) Voting will end December 31, 2015, around 7:00 PM CST (approximately).
    10) Elimination round voting will be used for finalists, if multiple members choose the winning number in Round 1.
    11) The winner or finalists will be announced on or near December 31, 2015.
    12) Finalists must be available on or near December 31, 2015 for second and subsequent round voting if necessary.
    13) The contest winner must be a member who is in good standing with the RedTailBoas.com Staff and Administrators.

    The contest holder reserves the right to reassign the award to a runner-up in the contest should the need arise. This includes, during and up to, any additional time required to ship the contest prize.

    REMEMBER TO VOTE HERE IN THIS THREAD!

    __________________

    Additional rules and guidelines:

    Participants must be willing to pay the shipping fees associated with the contest prize (which, for prizes consisting of snakes, usually average between $50.00 - $70.00 approximately). We will only ship the winning boa within the continental United States. If you are not a U.S. resident read the last section of this post.

    Each member is allowed one free DAILY vote during the contest. Any member with multiple user accounts will automatically be excluded from all contests (and potentially banned from the forum). All votes must be submitted in the contest thread itself. If you submit a vote or votes that are outside the guidelines above, I will ignore them. You cannot change your vote(s) once submitted. I will NOT notify you if you vote for the same square (number) more than one time.

    IMPORTANT - AGAIN, you cannot edit or delete your post once submitted, so ensure it is accurate before you submit your vote to the active thread. Submitting a second post requesting a correction on a number/vote posted in error will NOT be counted and may result in both posts being deleted from the contest thread.

    There are 100 possible numbers in this contest. Increase your odds of selecting the winning number by voting every day during the contest.

    All communications and your vote selection must be done via the contest thread in this forum. This form of communication provides both parties with a date and time stamped copy of the vote. Members must respond uniquely each day. Additional votes that are time stamped on the same "forum based" date/time stamp will be ignored.

    The first round allows each qualified member to cast a vote for the NUMBER that they believe will represent the WINNING NUMBER. Round one ends before, on, or near the contest end date and approximate time. At the time the contest ends, I will determine if more than one member has selected the WINNING NUMBER.

    All numbers chosen as winning numbers are obtained from a random number generator at random.org where the numerical parameters of the contest are entered to obtain a winning number that falls within those numerical parameters for that specific contest or contest round.

    If a single winning vote is the result of round one, the winner does not need to be available at that specific date/time to win the contest.

    If more than one member selected the WINNING NUMBER, we will open round two of the contest. Only the members that selected the WINNING NUMBER from round one will continue into, and be eligible to vote in, round two of the contest.

    It is important that all round finalists must be available at the contest round one completion in order to participate in the upcoming second and subsequent rounds. If a member is unavailable during this time, their current round vote will be forfeited. The vote forfeiture time frame is approximately 72 hours (three days) after the second and/or subsequent round is posted.

    If no one has correctly identified the WINNING NUMBER by this time, I will obtain a new winning number from random.org.

    If multiple members pick the winning number in the second round of voting, those members will continue to an additional round of voting.

    I reserve the right to modify the contest rules as needs require. I also reserve the right to cancel this contest at anytime.

    ************************************************** ************************

    Forum Members who are NON-U.S. residents: Although I do not wish to disqualify your entry into this contest, it is unavoidable because of the shipping constraints imposed on the specific contest sponsor. If you are not a US resident and you would still like to enter the contest, you are welcome to do so, understanding that if you win the contest you must award the free boa to another member of the forum that participated in this contest who lives in the continental United States. You should understand that the boa will not be shipped outside the continental United States; so, should you decide to enter the contest and win, your option is to select any of the U.S. resident active members who participated in the contest and award the boa to them or auction the boa to contest participants to generate funds for the forum itself (all proceeds obtained by this method will go directly to supporting RedTailBoas.com). Think of this as your turn to give joy to another member or to help fund RedTailBoas.com.

    If for some reason a NON-U.S. resident wins and fails to award the boa to a U.S. resident either free or via an auction, I will award the boa to the runner up contest winner or an additional contest round will be conducted to identify a new contest winner.
