I don’t spend a huge amount of time in public forums these days, but a few years ago I gained a lot of valuable knowledge from a multitude of forums, and still communicate with old friends.
Forum mergers probably happen all the time, though I can’t recall one in the webmaster space before that was significant so this seems like a good excuse for YAC – “Yet another competition”
They are giving away $25,000 in prizes in a referral and participation competition and it is free to enter.
I am not entering, so please feel free to add your referral link in the comments
I am always surprised when all the contests from bloggers, forums etc don’t have legal restrictions on country of residence on competitions with physical prizes.
Note: I generally don’t write about competitions even if I am a sponsor – in this case when I heard this was happening I thought it was quite newsworthy.
I wonder how much duplication of membership they had? Maybe even email addresses being used by people with 2 different names, one for each forum?
