July 2008 Prize Winner(s)!

Wow! What a month, and thanks to all of you who contributed to the site 🙂

The first and second place winners were so close to both winning, that after checking and re-checking point scores, we have decided it would only be fair to award both users a prize. So the first place winner will be given a choice from our current prize selection, and the second place winner will be given a choice from a secondary prize selection (see prizes page).

Drum-roll please……….

The winner of the July 2008 GMNews competition with 55 points in comments and 10 points in news tips and a total of 65 points is….

Elmernite

And our second place winner (who will also receive a prize [see Update below]) with 50 points in comments and 14 points in news tips and with a total of 64 points is…..

Caniac

Congratulations to both of you! You both have put in a lot of effort and deserve a prize. We never thought it could come down to this and it very much surprised all of us how close the numbers were.

For those of you who are wondering: Caniac had more posted comments than Elmernite, however most of them were short and quick. Elmernite wrote longer posts that showed more effort, quality, and contained more information.

We also want to thank the following runner-ups who also did a great job:

– Mattthew_H
– Legocrazy1
– Nikhil Sharma

For everyone else, please see the Prizes page for information on the competition and prize choices.
Remember, all you have to do is post a comment or submit a news tip and you’re in the running to win the monthly prizes.

UPDATE: Caniac has generously declined and donated his prize back to GMNews in exchange for the opportunity to win next month’s prize give-away.
