What about existing members?
Existing members need to make the required (5) quality posts between today and March 31st. If they do not currently have an avatar, they should follow the directions above to update their avatar.

Is this contest open to members outside of the US?
Unfortunately, the contest is open to members within the US. This is due to shipping restrictions that only allow us to send an Apple product within the US.

Is this contest open to forum moderators?
Yes. Forum moderators are not paid. They volunteer to help keep our forums free of spam and to be sure members follow our forum policy. As such, they are eligible for the contest.

What type of posts are not considered as quality posts?
Short phrases intended to pad posts such as, “Yes, I agree” or  “I want to win”. If your stay at everythingiCafe consists of (5) posts that offer little or no value, you’d likely be disqualified. No need to write a book in each post, but your posts should not look like you are simply trying to hit (5) posts as quickly as possible.

Do people really win these contests?
We get asked this quite a bit when we run our giveaways. In short, yes real people win our contests.

    I hope this isn’t a cruel April fools joke! :)

    Does this mean you have to start a new post or can comment on someone elses?

    I think this means if we make a comment that adds substinence to a discussion then it would probably count. Of course some overworked moderator has to make some list of all the posts. I don’t envy them on that job.

    How about “we’ll will randomly select one entrant on or around April 1st and they will be the only one not getting an iPad?” :)
