Congratulations again to @Jengd for winning last month’s draw for a Green Day gift card! The plan was to give away the new Warning reissue from 1-2-3-4 Go! Records but they’ve taken the page down for some reason. So the prize is the Warning vinyl or if that is not available (or you have the album already on vinyl), you can pick your own record from the store as your prize.
To win the prize you must be among the top 20 most active members of the forum during the month of April. You can check where you stand on the leaderboard for the month. The top three on the leaderboard will receive two entries and everyone else will receive one.
January winner: OperationSmily - Nimrod XXV Vinyl Box Set
February winner: pacejunkie - Oakland Coffee gift card
March winner: jengd - Green Day gift card
How do I get activity points? - Activity points are rewarded for reading posts, liking comments, and of course making posts and making comments.
How do I see how I’m doing? - You can see how you are doing on the leaderboard .
Can I increase my chances to win? - The top 3 users on the leaderboard at the end of the month will receive two contest entries while all other active users will receive one entry.
If you have any other questions feel free to ask below. Good luck!
Congratulations to @HCATZ123 who finally pulled through with the win! You have your choice of the Warning vinyl or something of equal value from 1-2-3-4 Go Records.
Update on the Monthly Draws
I know I had said there would be a draw each month until a new Green Day album was released but I’m afraid I’m going to have to go back on that promise and this will be the final draw
Unfortunately, we still have no indication of an announcement coming anytime soon and it seems we may be several months away at least.
With summer approaching I have considerable expenses coming up for travel, concerts, etc along with the monthly bills to pay for the website & forum hosting, discord bots, and whatnot and it’s getting rather expensive adding a prize each month to those bills.
That said, I will still be doing periodic giveaways for big events like when the album is finally announced. You may also have noticed there is a badge for “Idiot Of The Month” which is given to the most active member each month. At the end of the year, I will do a grand prize draw for one member that achieved that badge over the year.
I apologize for abruptly ending it this way, but let’s be honest - Green Day are the one’s not releasing an album so you all should be mad at them and not me
But seriously, I do appreciate you all being here and forming this little community, and I hope you all will continue to be here for a long time to come. Thank you for playing along for the last four months.
Totally understand you’ve gone above and beyond to make this a great little community and I know every one of us here appreciates it. Don’t give it a second thought. I for one am happy to blame the MIA Green Day right now and all I have to say is when they finally do promo for this album, they better have a great story for why it took so long!
Congrats HCATZ123! Also, don’t feel like you have to do this for us, Jason. It was fun when it lasted. We understand why you’re stopping and I won’t abandon this community because of it, I’m having way too much fun being in a community of people who love my special interest as much as me. And I’ll totally be blaming Green Day;)
