NOW CLOSED; My 1000 post Giveaway; win one of three Sipik SK68s

_the_ can't start a tradition unless the next person to get to a 1000 posts does a giveaway too, so, _the_, this one's for you, buddy!

I've just order another three pack of colored Sipik SK68s from Meritline, y'all know the ones.  Anyway, all three are going to go to three differernt winners, drawn at random from three different groups; i.e. one light each.  Group one will be comprised of users with 1-99 posts .  Group two will be users with posts counts from 100-499.  The last group will be users who have posted more than 500 times.  All post counts are as of the day you enter this giveaway.

Clearly, the groups are not of equal size, my intent is to encourage the newer folks to participate more.  Plus, I imagine that most of the other two groups already have a 68 if they wanted one so a second one isn't such a big deal.  I hope this is still fun for you more jaded types.  I guess we will see how it plays out.

The giveaway is open to everyone, including those who normally sit these contests out for one reason or another (sb and kreisler, I'm talking to you both).  The honor system still applies, so you "shadow account" folks can only enter once.  

This is open to all members who are members before the time stamp on the OP.  I will ship worldwide, although I reserve the right to PayPal gift the cash equivalent to a winner who's location makes the shipping costs truly outrageous.

Also, in order the thank the people who initially welcomed me to this forum, and to encourage the rest of you to be welcoming in the future (by no means do I mean to imply that this isn't a very welcoming and friendly place; y'all are great!), the following people get a second chance in the giveaway... jacktheclipper, Match, ChicagoX, Langcjl, gen1.3_, ezarc, Chidwack, _the_, kreisler, edc, veer, JohnnyMac, BetweenRides, and, last, but not least, fishinfool... asumming, of course, that any of you guys even want in on this in the first place.  If any of you 14 post that you are in I will count you twice regardless of your wishes on the matter.

Speaking of entering, all any of you have to do to enter is to post your current post count in this thread.  I'll reorganize the the contestants into your new groups from which a random member will be picked.  Once each group has a winner, I'll randomly pick the order of the three winners so that they may then choose their color preference. 

The giveaway will be open for as long as it takes Meritline to get the lights to me.  It took a little over two weeks the last time I ordered from them, so... I will post when they arrive and that will be the end of that.

Good luck to everyone, especially those I've annoyed in the past!  Bygones all around!  It has been my pleasure to hang out here with y'all and I've truly enjoyed every minute of it.  We've had some fun, haven't we?  Here is to hoping that my next 1000 posts are slightly more helpful then the last 1000.

 

 

REMEMBER- PLEASE POST YOUR CURRENT POST COUNT IN THIS THREAD.  THANKS.

***WINNER… kreisler!***

If anyone happens to notice any mistakes in this list, please let me know. Thanks.

And it seems the the number 8, followed by a right parentheses, will get you a “smilie”. Obviously, you three are still number 8 in your individual group.

"It is critical that there is a credible academic source for the growing and important discipline of alternative facts. This field of study will just keep winning, and we knew that all the best people would want to be on board. There is a real risk in the world today that people might be getting their information about science from actual scientists"
