To celebrate our forum exceeding 10,000 posts/day we are once again giving out $2250 in Overstock.com gift cards to authors of semi-randomly selected posts. This is in addition to $2000 in gift cards we gave out in December and $2200 in January. The more one 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 please 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 on 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.

New $50 gift cards winners are:

Captain Bill
compelled to reply
Gretchen B
love roses
Magnum Mike
Maine Writer
Northwoods Voyager
Valerie C
Wild Style

-Current moderators and previous winners were not eligible.
-Previous winners will be eligible to win again in the future at some point.
-All winners should check their Direct Messages for further info coming up soon.
-Sorry, no details on the selection process are available.
-This is not any kind of endorsement of these posters' views.
-This is not a solicitation to enter any kind of sweepstakes.
-If any winner declines to accept his or her gift certificate or wants to be removed from this list, another winner will be chosen.

Wow! Congratulations, everyone! If "pocket cash" entails me getting a large City-Data tatoo across my stomach to help promote the site when I go running along the highway in a few months, then count me in! I'm within a few short weeks of finally using the generous gift I received back in December. Let's just hope I don't get banned before I have the option of putting my 23-hour per day City-Data addiction to good use for myself financially! LOL!

I see a lot of familiar names on that list along with a few I've never before seen. Congratulations to you all, and keep posting!

Oh my goodness...What a wonderful surprise. I am almost speechless, almost. I just love this forum and it has been such a life saver for me so many times. I can't thank y'all enough for this honour. And it is such a sweet Birthday Present also. (2/25). You are so nice. Thank you, thank you. This is my first one and I am honoured to be in such company. Thank you again, Administrator and all.

Hey, Izzy, congrats, again.

Cool Thanks Admin...for the gift card

Well, I seem to have found myself in distinguished company this time, having been named as one of the $50 Overstock.com recipients for February .

I recognize about one third of the other winners on Admin's list as members with whom I have shared ideas, photos, jokes and comments - both humorous and serious .

I congratulate everyone on the list for having also been selected to share in this unexpected windfall.

When Auntie Batz hears of this great news she will surely prepare a list for me to "assist" me in rapidly cashing in on this offer.

Our sincere thanks to Admin along with our congratulations on achieving 10,000 posts in a day. We share in your happiness at achieving such a goal and know that this is just the beginning of even greater things to come.

As we say here in The Carolinas, when we receive happy news, and I quote......"Yeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeehaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa "....
