Default $2550 in gift cards given away (June 2009)!

To celebrate a new record of 6,385,025 unique forum visitors in May (Google Analytics data), we are once again giving out Overstock.com gift cards to authors of posts of our choosing. This is in addition to $2000 in gift cards we gave out in December 2007, $2200 in January 2008, $2250 in February 2008, $2250 in March 2008, $2350 in April 2008, $2400 in May 2008, $2200 in August 2008, $2450 in November 2008, and $2500 in March 2009. The total given out to active posters is now $22,900! The more somebody wrote lately, the better chance of winning. Only users still active on our forum were included. We hope to give away even more gifts in the future, so stick around, post, and invite your friends. We are also working on other features allowing our posters to earn some pocket cash (sorry, no details yet). We recognize that we have many very valuable posters not included in this short list and we thank you all for participating. With hundreds of thousands registered users, it is impossible for us to thank you all personally in a similar fashion.

Your posts here are very widely read. Forum thread titles are displayed on our city info pages, so the real reach is even wider.

New $50 gift cards winners are:
