    Most constructive spammer: who posts the most but puts an extra something into every post?

    don't even think about it - that's the fastest way to a closed thread ;)

    Ok, I thought we were recommending categories we could judge others on the site on, and eventually award a quazi-award to them for it.

    Am I wrong?

    edit: rephrased so it makes sense

    New Mac Rumors logo?

    We could do that. Of course, Arn would have to agree, but still. We could do it, just for fun, couldn't we? Arn wouldn't have to do anything with the designs, but he could declare a winner in the end. And maybe the designs will be so good that it will end up as being the new official logo anyway?!

    Anyone? Good idee?

    :confused:

    switcher contest

    This might not be the best place to present my contest idea, but here it goes.

    To help the switch campaign we could try to enter people's names who currently want to switch, but are afraid because of the entry price or other reasons. Each entry name would be $1 or a donation. That would go to pay for 50-75% of the winner's new mac, then the winner would be expected to donate back or nominate more people.

    For $1 each we could turn more people on to apple.

    The only flaw is that anyone could enter, we'd have to find a way to prove they are not already a mac user.

    just a though, and i'm not sure macrumors or others would want to handle that much money? i could be wrong?

    We could do a gaming contest, maybe ut2003 or something. It could be sponcered by some companies and the price could be a new Mac. I think I could win at UT2003 since I normally come first on the PC.

    Re: switcher contest

    think of how much planning and effort and whatnot this would require... would everyone paypal the $1? isn't there usually a fee with paypal? what if people decided not to donate? there's a relatively small number of active (and willing is even fewer) members here... don't think it'd work

    gaming seems feasible.

    I'd go with an avatar contest since I wasn't a member during the last one. Now all I need is some photoshop talent and a clever idea.
