    In this thread Haspel and I will be offering to sponsor 12 BHW members for a full years Jr VIP membership.


    Here?s what we?re offering...

    Starting from March 2015, every month for the next 12 months, we will sponsor one BHW member for a full 1 year Jr VIP membership here at BHW.

    The sponsorship covers the current Jr VIP membership fee for a period of 12 months.

    We are sponsoring one new member each month from March 2015 to February 2016

    The money for these memberships has already been paid to BHW in advance.

    BHW will upgrade the members account for them and no money will be paid to the BHW member.


    This is not a freebie-come-begging thread looking for sob stories.


    To be eligible for one of the Jr VIP memberships available each month you will need to start a new thread in either the Black Hat SEO section or the White Hat SEO section or the Making Money section.


    Only threads started in the sections those links lead to will be considered so please follow those links to avoid any confusion.



    So, in March 2015 you need to create a new thread in one of the above sections. At the end of March we will look at all of those threads created during March and the opening post that has received the most ?thanks? will be chosen and the BHW member who started the thread will receive a 1 year Jr VIP membership fully paid for by Haspel and myself.

    In April 2015 everything gets reset and this starts again. The same procedure will be followed in April. Any threads started during March will not be considered so at the start of April it?s a new level playing field for everyone. The number of ?likes? your opening post received from the previous month won?t be counted.

    Each month, to take part, you will need to start a new thread in one of the above mentioned sections.

    The offer of sponsorships will continue until February 2016 so there are 12 chances to earn one of the Jr VIP memberships.


    The usual BHW rules and requirements must be met for being eligible for Jr VIP membership
    ;

    You must have been a member of the forum for at least 60 days and have at least 100 quality posts.

    You MUST be able to meet these two requirements to be eligible for Jr VIP sponsorships being offered here.


    This is your opportunity to earn your Jr VIP status and then use it to open up doors of opportunity in the IM world. And in the process you?re also contributing to BHW and its members in a positive and helpful way by sharing your knowledge and experience.

    If there is any part of this that you're unsure about then post your question in this thread. Please do NOT PM me asking to be given one of the sponsored Jr VIP memberships or reasons why you deserve one etc. Any PM's like that will be reported to a moderator. This thread isn't looking for begging or 'hard luck' stories, this thread is about showing BHW what you're all about and contributing to the forum and helping others.


    The thread will be updated each month to announce the BHW member who has earned the Jr VIP membership that month.

    Important: As a requirement of taking part, once you have started your thread you must post a reply here with a link to your thread and the month that it has been submitted for so we can monitor the number of thanks the first post receives.

    Thanks,

    Shez

    Please clarify something. If you're using thanks to determine the "winner", would it not be unfair to those who post a thread late in the month?

    That's very generous of you guys. I don't need it myself obviously, but best of luck to whoever is participating.

    I don't know if basing it on "Thanks received" is the best way to select a winner though. It's not hard to manipulate such a system if you're really desperate to win. I think some sort of manual review should be set in place too.

    That's a really great giveaway guys and really well thought out.

    Brilliant idea on the selection criteria too - this is the sort of thing that will encourage the sharing and helping philosophy BHW is all about.

    Kudos to the both of you!

    The "Thanks" option was deemed as the fairest way as allowing human selection leaves it open to suggestion of favoritism by others. What would stop Admin, BHW staff, Haspel or myself from choosing someone we had a personal connection with?

    By using the "thanks" button as a way of voting is more transparent and although it is possible to manipulate any system there are things in place that allow manipulation to be spotted. Desperate people are easy to spot because the do desperate things.


    Thanks,

    Shez

    I understand that much but a post made on March 31 will never win. This system makes post date a huge factor, more so than post quality. It's good to see you giving back though

    A good quality post will receive more thanks than one of less quality/usefulness and although a post made on the last day of the month would be at a disadvantage date wise it could still gain more "thanks" than one made at the start of the month if it is of much higher quality.

    We can't offer this to suit everyone and every aspect but it is a fair way of doing things that gives transparency and removes the ability to favor anyone based on personal connections. If a member wants to post but wants to wait until the start of the next month then that's fine and their choice.

    This isn't all about a competition, it's about members putting in to the forum and by doing so they will be helping other members by sharing the best of what they know.

    I just wanted to wish good luck to everyone participating hopefully you guys will get as much value out of your Jr.Vip membership and the community as me and Shez did.And to the ones who wont get a chance to participate due to low post count or being new members hopefully some of the posts that will be nominated in this thread will help you kickstart your IM career and who knows maybe in a few months you will be the ones sharing your IM success with this great community.
