It is already set up for everybody on this forum that have 25 posts and above. People w/less than 25posts cannot enter.
Sorry, perhaps I am not understanding your post correctly. Is that what you were talking about?

No, that I get. I know this contest is designed to get more people to participate and post more, hopefully in a good way. What I'm saying is that the incentive or encouragement to participate is gone once someone reaches that magic number of posts. So for someone who has ~100 posts, the contest is a nice perk, but doesn't necessarily encourage more participation. The contest only squeezes out more participation from beginners and new members. I mean, for me it worked, and got me to start posting more. Hopefully I can continue to post meaningful information, but I don't have to if I don't want to. So it's like the incentive to post more is only temporary. See what I mean?

Then just consider it a reward for your participation. Look at it this way - at least you're not excluded from entering because you've got lots of posts!

Actually cookiemonster - I tend to disagree on a psychological standpoint. 25 may be a little low, but the idea is to get more members posting more often in more valuable ways. Once a person makes a certain number of valuable posts they become psychologically "invested" in the forum and thus are more likely to continue posting valuable information instead of stopping at 25 posts. Ironically, you admit this very activity yourself!

It's different every time. See this sub-forum for the details. When the next contest happens, there will be a post there.
