The WWOMB Contest, Sponsored by Squidge.ORG
Please note that as of January 2019, the contest has been suspended.
Want to win a prize for something you already love doing? The WWOMB, in conjunction with host Squidge.ORG is running three monthly contests starting in October 2010. Participate, and you can win one of four US$10 (£ 6.50, or € 6.50 - the non-US equivalent of US$10, as it fluctuates) gift certificates to either the Apple iTunes store or Amazon.com or item(s) out of the Squidge.org CafePress store up to US$20 (£ 15.00 or € 15.00 - again, fluctuating with currency exchange) before shipping. NOTE from 08/2016: CafePress no longer has gift certificates, so this option is now no longer available.
Please note that as of January 2016, we are dropping the category for most prolific author. Other categories still apply.
Here are the categories:
1) One random author from the month
2) One random commenter from the month, as well as the author the story was made about.
Every month, on the first of the month, three different queries will be put to the database. The first query will search for the author with the most stories for the previous month, the second one will find a random author that submitted a story from the previous month (excluding the most prolific author's penname), and the last one will find a random commenter who commented on any story over the previous month. Each winner will be contacted via their email address in the system, and be offered one prize from the following: A $10 Apple iTunes gift certificate, a $10 Amazon.com gift certificate, or one item from the Squidge.org CafePress store worth up to $20 (not including shipping).
The Fine Print:The contest was not run in 2013, but has resumed with drawings as of January, 2014. Additionally, it wasn't run May 2014 to December 2014. There will be no drawings nor prizes for those months.Open to anyone registered on the WWOMB and participating per above requirements.Hostmaster 'squidgie' and Webmistress 'peja' are not eligible to winWinners from one month will not be eligible for the next contests that month, and for the next month's contest. e.g. If user 'maximo' wins the most prolific author contest for the period September 1st - 30th, they cannot win the random author or random commenter contest that month. They are also ineligible to win the 'most prolific' prize for a period of 12 months. However, the most prolific author and all other winners for the month are eligible starting the second month after their win (for all contests except most prolific author).It is assumed that all registered users are participants. If a user wants to opt out from all contests, please contact Hostmaster at 'email@example.com'Apple iTunes and Amazon.com gift certificates available worldwide. Squidge.ORG CafePress store items available in North America (Canada, United States, Mexico), The United Kingdom, and The European Union only.Hostmaster and Webmistress reserve the right to mark a winner ineligible in cases where the entries are fraudulent, including but not limited to A) stories the author has not themselves written B) the same story uploaded multiples times with intent to skew the numbers C) entries deemed ineligible such as random characters (i.e. 'abcd1234') being submitted for a story or a comment on a story or "placeholder" stories where the text of the story says something like "Will be uploaded soon".Winner's pennames will be listed on the WWOMB for the month period after they win. All attempts will be made to contact them, though hostmaster and webmistress will not be held responsible for those with bouncing email addresses. First attempt will be via the email address in the author's/commenter's profile, if available, then by the 'Contact User' form available on WWOMB. A second attempt will be done, if no response is received, ten to fourteen days later. Final attempt will be made ten to fourteen days after that. If no response received by the time of the next drawing, the winner forfeits their prize.
If you have questions, please direct them to Peja at firstname.lastname@example.org or Walter at email@example.com
