So yeah, what we talked about recently
is going to officially start tonight at midnight (pacific). Here are some basic rules:
- Posts made any time in December of 2010 are eligible (pacific time reference, again)
- There will be a single best post crowned for the month, picked by cortex, jessamyn, and myself on a podcast we'll record the first week in January.
- We will have three more official categories: best single-link post, best multi-link post (think 2-10ish), best megalink post (think giant wikipedia style dump of 25+ links).
- We'll have lots of silly one-off categories we'll make up for favorites that fit the bill (think "best single link youtube post that actually makes single link youtube posts OK to like", etc)
- We'll award a new iPad (or a $499 contribution to a charity of your choice) to the best post
- We'll award $100 gift certificates to the winners of the other three official categories to a store of the winner's choosing (think Amazon, Apple, etc) or a charity of their choice.
That's about it, sound good?
(also, we're turning off the ordering for t-shirts in a few hours, so get on that quick if you haven't made an order yet)
