I agree Dimitri. If we keep on going we WILL come up with a solution. Twenty-five posts, 100-posts, either is is fine. But I agree that to qualify to play you should have some minimum number of posts or meet some prerequisite.

Yes. Don't know why Bryan didn't use it this time but he's used the "self picking number assigner" several times in the past. ::shrug::

::idea:: How about we get 12 volunteers from this site to commit to donating one knife in advance for the monthly giveaway?

1.You can choose the month you want to donate the knife and post a picture of the knife in a dedicated thread and it can be seen in advance by all members.

2. You don`t have to be a former winner of the monthly giveaway, so no pressure to donate.

3. Donate 1 knife or several, what ever the individual wants to do.

All it would take is 12 members or less to have all the giveaway knives accounted for the year.


I like that idea. I would be glad to donate a knife for one of the drawings.

For a spontaneous give away such as Dimitri's Christmas give away or the one WoseyJales just had, 25 posts prior to the date the give away begins with a hard date entered in the original post by the give away sponsor.
I went back and checked the Giveaway thread I started 3 years ago and my requirement was 100 posts minimum :o Like I said, I caught hell for that requirement, but still think it is very fair.

No one who just checks in once a month to win a free knife is going to make 100 posts to qualify, they will move on I believe.

I am not against new members and it should be open to all, just they will have to wait till they have the required amount of posts.
I agree with Miller Bros, I think 100 posts is a good number as a "filter". When I first joined the site, I was told (very diplomatically) that I could not participate in a contest because I didn't yet have 100 posts. I had no problem with that because my purpose for joining was not to score a free knife. I think its a good idea, and that 25 may be too low a number, as there may be the temptation to jump on the threads and post 25 three word responses. Doing that 100 times would take a bit more work ...

I will still contribute regardless. There is no easy solution but we are headed in the right direction ::handshake::
I agree, and I will also contribute - please put me on that list and let me know what is decided.

I only try to win a knife every once in a while but I like the min. post idea at least 100. If I won a knife I would certainly supply a knife for the next available month. The truth is my luck is soooo bad I could promise the moon if I won :lol:
