Two days ago we launched a contest with $800 in prizes to help encourage members to meet new friends and contribute content to GenealogyWise. We received feedback from members suggesting that our contest could be "gamed" and abused. So, last night we wrote new rules to the contest to try to address these concerns. We then created a forum discussion asking members how they felt about the new contest rules. You can read the discussion here
. The response was almost unanamous that the members felt that the contest, even in the revised form should be pulled. So, to be sensitive to the feedback of the community members, we have withdrawn the contest. Thank you for your feedback.
