NOTE: Winners of the April Contributor Contest, Loyal Reader Lottery and Forum Lottery will be announced shortly.
*Just a note: I'm sorry the Daily Visit score isn't more 'every day' instead of its current 'every 24h1m', but that is just the front end tracking for you guys and when we run the lotto we pull from a more accurate list. So for those of you visiting every day diligently but not triggering the Daily Visit score reward, don't stress about it!
- Contests are NOT limited to the US/NA.
