Wow – last month’s activity contest was one for the ages. Three community members were neck-and-neck up until the last day of July. Here were the final standings:

  • ToddN2000: 6,055 points ($200 Amazon gift card)
  • Subhendu Sen: 5,050 points ($100)
  • CharlieBrowne: 4,860 points
  • Ncberns: 1,030 points
  • AlbertGareev: 1,020 points

And as an added bonus – CharlieBrowne will also receive a $100 Amazon gift card. Now – let’s move on to this month’s contest. One ITKE user will receive a $200 Amazon gift card but here’s the catch: The user will be randomly selected and has to be ranked in the top 5 for ITKE points. There’s no rest for the weary so it’s time to get started again!

Points, points and more points….that’s what the community piled up during May’s activity contest with two power users hitting the 3,000 point plateau. Here were the final numbers:

  • CharlieBrowne: 3,570 points
  • Subhendu Sen: 3,150 points
  • Meghabhardwaj: 2,150 points
  • Harisheldon: 1,700 points
  • ToddN2000: 1,175 points

Now, let’s move on to this month’s contest. Since we only had two winners in May, let’s double that amount for June. The first four users to reach 2,000 ITKE points will receive a $50 Amazon gift card. That will help you buy that wireless bluetooth floating sound system for the summer months. Good luck!
