Our forum is still growing - we had 5.9 million unique forum visitors in October (Google Analytics stats), so to celebrate 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, $2200 in January, $2250 in February, $2250 in March (one user declined), $2350 in April, $2400 in May, and $2200 in August. The total given out to active posters in just one year is now $17,850! 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 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:

Big House
Camden Northsider
Classic Satch
desert sun
harry chickpea
middle-aged mom
W-B proud

-Previous winners were eligible to win and will be in the future as well.
-All winners should check their Direct Messages for further info.
-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, what a lovely thing to find logging in after a long day of hard work! Thank you, Administrator and fearless Moderators, both for the lovely gift and for keeping all of us fractious souls in line here every day.

One of the reasons that I keep coming back here is the conscientious and effective work you do to limit the inevitable troll & spam influence that is prevalent in so many similar fora. It can't be easy to keep track of so many threads, but it makes a huge difference to all of us who meet here to converse on a regular basis. Thank you for all that you do to keep the discourse civil and on-topic.

Thanks again for a very well-timed and much-appreciated gift, and best wishes to all for a joyful holiday season!

This is so cool! I love surprises! I am thinking of using some of this gift to participate in the overstock.com Toys for Tots giving program. This is just so much fun! Just in time for Christmas shopping!
