Hello Gardening & Langscaping users! Following my last post asking for contest ideas, here's what we've come up with:

  1. The contest will start on 1st of August UTC (tomorrow) and last for 4 weeks, until 22 August.
  2. Every week, 2 winners will be selected, one each for:

    • asking a question with the highest number of views
    • posting an answer with the highest score

    The question/answer must be posted during that week for it to be eligible. So get to sharing, and don't forget to upvote good answers!

  3. Winners get to choose one of the following as their prize: a waterbottle, SE t-shirt or an SE mug.

We'll announce the winners each week in answers, and the moderator team will privately compile contact/shipping info for prizes. (Good news: SE ships internationally!)

Additional notes:

  • Closed and deleted posts are ineligible for the event.
  • Winning one week makes you ineligible to win again. Somewhat harsh, I know, but we'd like to reach as many people as we can.

Good luck, everyone!

  • Thanks for participating in this contest, everyone! The winners will be emailed soon. :)
