With summer fast approaching and the weather becoming warm and lovely, the obvious way to spend our days is basking in the beautiful sunshine. Right? Wrong. The sun means sweaty clothes, heat stroke, and melanoma. Your best bet for surviving this season is to stay indoors and have a ball on everyone's favorite fanfiction mockery community during The Summer of AFTER!

WHAT?
The Summer of AFTER is a twelve-week celebration of all things PA. Forum members will have several special events to enjoy, including the chance to win fabulous prizes in the form of Amazon gift certificates!

WHEN?
June 7th through August 30th, 2015—twelve straight weeks of good times culminating in Project AFTER's 12th anniversary!

WOOZLE WUZZLE?
That's right folks, you can win Amazon gift certificates just for being active on the Project AFTER Forums. It's like getting free ice cream for being naked in public! On five secret dates during The Summer of AFTER, I'll use a random number generator to pick a lucky forum member from the crowd. Said member will then receive a $10 gift certificate to online superstore Amazon.com via e-mail IF they meet the following criteria:

  • They are an active user. (Read: Their account is not suspended or banned at the time of selection.)
  • They've made a total of at least 50 posts at the time of selection.
  • They've made at least 10 posts within the last seven days prior to the time of selection.

That last stipulation is where your loyalty will really be rewarded. If you want to win it, you gotta be in it ("it" being the forums, as an active user). Good news though: Each new thread you start will be worth two posts. In other words, if you spent the week making two threads and six replies, you'll totally be eligible for that sweet e-cash.

By the power vested in me by this admin account, I hereby declare The Summer of AFTER officially underway! Put on your coolest pair of shades, mix yourself a Mai Tai or eight, and get ready to party like a mad motherfucker all summer long!

What stopping someone from making 10 posts in quick succession?

Absolutely nothing! If you want to be a crafty sumbitch and make your ten posts all at once at the start of each week, then go for it. Just make sure these are quality posts we're talking about—if you spam a bunch of dumb bullshit and one or more of your posts gets deleted, then you don't get no prize if your number comes up.

So wait just to make things clear, do you have to make 10 posts once a week, the last seven days, or from June 7th to August 30th?

Suppose today was one of the random selection dates. If your account number came up, I would then look at your post history so see if you've made at least ten posts since May 31st. If you had, you'd receive a $10 Amazon gift certificate; if you'd made less than ten posts, however, then you'd be disqualified and I'd move on to a different member's account. Does that make sense?

Oh, so essentially you have to be at least active before May 31st, then we have to make at least 10 posts?

Makes sense.

This is the kind of high-content posting you get when gift cards are on the line.

Amazon gift cards, eh? Interesting choice of incentive, I guess I should post more if I want the dough to buy me some quality literature

The first step is admitting you have a problem.

The second step is anal sex.

I'm going to just post my unpublished novel in the Misc. section.

So what I'm inferring from this contest idea is that it's time to resurrect the Hugbox.

That is amazing, I loooooove it. XD

Sounds like a neat contest and a good way to get extra activity!
