Well, we’re officially approaching the best time of the year… Halloween! Get your PSL’s or your pumpkin beer of choice, because it’s about to get spooky.

Before you start filling your Amazon cart with 50 pound bags of dum dums and a bunch of candy corn nobody will eat, let’s take a look at the winners from last month!

  • $100 Amazon gift card – Most Thoughtful Answer: ToddN2000, for their answer to this AS400 command question!
  • $75 Amazon gift card – Most Thoughtful Answer (2nd): TheRealRaven, for their answer to this question about RPGLE!
  • $50 Amazon gift card – Most Thoughtful Answer (3rd): TIE – ToddN2000 and TheRealRaven for their combined advice on this hacking/photo stealing discussion with a concerned user. $25 each to the winners!
  • $50 Amazon gift card – Friendly Face – ToddN2000!
  • $25 Amazon gift card – Points Player – Subhendu Sen! [2000 points]

There were plenty of other awesome discussions from this month for most thoughtful answer – Really great job everybody. Awesome to see!

If you didn’t get a chance to see my blog post about the awards changes from August, feel free to click the link and stay up to date. In case you need a refresher, here are the categories below!

  • $100 Amazon gift card: Most Thoughtful Answer – Give an answer that goes above and beyond the call of duty to qualify. Are you an expert in a particular subject? Hunt down a question and answer it with your expertise so that others can benefit! This prize can stack with the prizes above or be won by another user, so don’t be shy about submitting those answers!
  • $75 Amazon gift card: Most Thoughtful Answer (Runner-up) – Same as above!
  • $50 Amazon gift card: Most Thoughtful Answer (3rd) – Same as above!
  • $50 Amazon gift card: Friendly Face – A neglected category! The internet can be a scary place, especially for those who don’t use it often or stumble upon the wrong communities. Show a little love to new users by welcoming them and encouraging them to get comfortable here. Interact with your veteran neighbors – we’re all in this together. After all, the more users this community has, the more helpful it will be for everyone! And who knows, they may end up answering questions alongside you down the road. A good example of this is Todd’s comment on this user’s question about honeypots.
  • $25 Amazon gift card: Points Player – Most points obtained in the month. There is something to be said for someone who interacts the most with our new questions. To discourage spam, only one comment per question will be tallied for this. Points for this award will only be tallied for questions asked within the last 6 months.

Keep it spooky, everybody, and save some full size candy bars for me!

    Nice to see that the winners were people who answered questions about topics on which they are actually experts, and not someone just asking for more details on questions they wouldn't be able to answer even if all of the necessary details were provided.

    Good job, guys.
