Where does it have a listing as FOG supporter.  And how do you become a FOG Supporter?

Matthew,

How do you know if your listed as a 2009 supporter.  I don't notice that designation any where.

How do you become a 2009 supporter?  Is it content contribution?  Number of posts?  Money contributions?   What qualifies a person as a 2009 supporter?

I was going to ask the same question but you beat me to it.  I'm curious about the answer as well.

The winner will be chosen on June 1, 2009.

By my count, there are 22 members currently designated 2009 Supporter (go to the Members Search Page, check the "Search by Position" box, uncheck any other boxes, put "2009" into the search box, and click the Search button).

If no-one else donates and becomes a 2009 Supporter before 1 June 2009, it therefore appears that the prize will go to one of these 22 members at random, even if they live outside the USA.

Is that a fair summary of the situation?

Would we fool you like that?  No, you really won.  And the competition was fierce!

Here's how I randomized the thing: I put all qualified member names on a spreadsheet, mixed randomly.  There are 76 altogether.  Then I asked my four bowling teammates to each pick a number from 1 to 76.  Then I took the average of their picks (rounded up or down).  Came up with 21, which happened to correspond to Fortrout.

Don't look for logic in this system.

In futue contests, I'll have a system where members take part in the randomization and choosing.  Stay tuned for more on that!

Congratulations again to Fortrout!
