I'm worth a million in prizes...
We launched this one last week (08.16.2004 NEWS: THE GREAT BOWIENET GIVE-AWAY IS ON) to a mixed response from you lot. While there has been a massive and encouraging response, there are quite understandably also those of you that aren't so keen to spend your time searching for tokens.
But, as I said in the original news piece, we will still run normal contests alongside this one, and to prove the point I'll be running one for the excellent Sony double disc reissues next week.
As I say, this is proving to be a very popular contest among many of you, and so, rather than wait until the end of the month, (as originally planned) I've decided to post the list of point winners below now in alphabetical order:
Totals as of 08.23.04
chas: 100 + 100 = 200
iPod: 100 + 100 = 200
kimberly: 25 + 10 + 10 + 100 + 100 = 245
LizSK2: 25 + 5 = 30
maarten: 25 + 5 = 30
mandn: 50 + 10 = 60
nemesis: 5 + 5 = 10
route66gal: 25 + 10 + 5 = 40
sandyscandy: 50 + 25 + 10 + 100 + 100 + 100 = 385
vivian: 100 + 100 = 200
zig: 5 + 100 + 100 = 205
Also j_lope and ZiggyStarGirl both found a Mystery Prize token.
As you can see, sandyscandy is running away with the lead position right now, but believe me, these things can change overnight, and they have done several times so far.
There is no pattern to when I post a new lot of tokens, and, as I write this, the 1625 points found so far would have been more than enough to claim a signed item of Bowie clobber had they all been found by one person...thankfully they weren't.
I'll be posting information about how you can redeem your points, including the Mystery Prizes, one of these coming weekends.
Just to give those of you still frantically scouring BowieNet a little rest... There are no tokens to be claimed right now, and I won't be posting more until Thursday.
I've received a few e-mails from members not sure how to PM me. It's quite easy... From anywhere on BowieNet, click on the DISCOURSE button at the top of the page. Then click on Message Boards, click on My Home, which you'll find in a horizontal list a little way down from the Message Boards button. Finally, click on "Send a PM" and enter totalblamblam in the Username box... the rest should be self-explanatory.
Failing that, click on the image above! Good luck.
