Once again, the community stepped up to the plate and delivered an incredible turnout for April’s activity contest. In fact, four users will be receiving $50 Amazon gift cards. Here were the final standings:

  • Meghabhardwaj: 2,650 points
  • Subhendu Sen: 2,440 points
  • ToddN2000: 2,390 points
  • Harisheldon: 2,320 points

Now, for May’s activity contest, I’m going to up the ante even more! The first two users to reach 3,000 ITKE points (Yes, I said 3,000) will receive a $100 Amazon gift card. Sounds too good to pass up, right? Time to get started!
