The date for the give away has been set for this coming Sunday, Jan 8, 2012
Please make sure that if you have posted the correct link on Facebook or anywhere else that I actually know about it. Send me a PM here on the forum with at least one link. Thanks
I do agree that this drawing is "easy," but I think with a fledgling site such as this it's probably necessary.
I wasn't around for the first drawings at Fiddlerman.com, but I don't think they required anything other than a minimum requisite number of posts to qualify. Now that Fiddlerman.com is a mature and well-established site, increasing the difficulty of eligibility makes sense. He already has hundreds of daily visitors and a good placement on search engines. My understanding is that the drawings are intended to generate buzz and excitement for each of these sites, so until we get Violaman.com up to the level of Fiddlerman, keeping things "light" will probably be necessary.
Even on the violin drawing that gave an entry for participation in the Christmas Project, it was still not a requirement. It just earned an extra entry for those who already had the requisite number of posts, or gave an entry to those who participated, but were still new.
Besides, requiring participation would automatically exclude those folks who have been visiting, but don't yet have an instrument of their very own to play.
Just my two cents on this.
Full disclosure and disclaimer: I'm also eligible to win this giveaway, so I can't guarantee a 100% unbiased opinion one way or the other on this, no matter how hard I try. Everybody likes to win. Fortunately for everyone else, I also have no influence over the what/when/why/how of Violaman's rules or drawings and will be as excited or disappointed as everyone else when the time comes.
The following people are eligible to for the drawing tomorrow.
1. First share this post on facebook and share with as many friends as possible.
