This thread is for comments on the article "Trailspace 20,000 Reviews Contest: Win Gear"

Back in 2001, a little outdoor community called Trailspace hit the world wide web with a small collection of backcountry gear reviews. As we approach 20,000 reviews, we think that milestone is worth celebrating. So, we're giving away gear in the Trailspace 20,000 Reviews Contest.

I am confused about how we enter for this contest? Is every review one entry ? Or are you going to pick from all active users ?

Welcome to Trailspace, nckgonzalez.

1. Every Trailspace member (not guests) will be entered into a random drawing each time they write a valid gear review between now and whenever the 20,000th review is submitted.

From that pool of member reviews/entries we'll pull a number of random winners and send them some prizes.

You only get entered into this drawing by being a member and writing a valid gear review (no one-liners, spams, etc) between now and #20,000. Each review is worth one entry.

2. In addition, whomever writes review #20,000 (member or guest) will win some prizes.

3. Also, if you write the "most helpful" review you will win prizes.

Being judged "most helpful" is based on how other members rate your reviews. At the bottom of every review on the site is a "Was this helpful? Yes/No" option. This will determine the most helpful reviews.

I hope that explained it for you.

What about the member with the most gear reviews? Isn't that worth something? LOL...JK. Fun contest though.

Ha ha! I hadn't thought of that one. Maybe I can come up with a few additional ideas like that for prizes.

Any other ideas?

I just wonder how many more members this contest will bring? Unrelated, for me, the contest gave me the kick in the butt I have needed to post some of the reviews that I have been meaning to put on here for a while now!

Just put my new SteriPen Adventurer, Xponent led pack lantern, Guyot design micro utensil, Columbia Utilizer2 pant, Guyot Gription cap w/ Cyclone 1 liter, Leki Super Makalu Trekking Poles, LaFuma Warm n' light 600 bag, and Sierra Designs Alpha CD 3 person convertible tent through the ringer. Fantastic fun, but now I have lots of work to do! :) Some fun review writing will be happening tonight!

I have never seen so many NEW gear review postings on here since the contest started! I would hope that once these new folks come on here they realize what a great tool this site is and continue to add and provide info for others.

As of right now: 19,810 reviews.

If you haven't written a review, you still have a little time to pull one together.

Hi Alicia, I wrote a review of Barilla Pasta PlusĀ (a new brand). Does it have to go through review before it posts? It's great stuff. Thanks for all of your efforts to make this such a great place to spend cybertime.

Good question. Only reviews not already attached to a brand on the site need to go through us first, since we have to add a brand to get them up.

We do get to them all though.

Otherwise, all reviews appear on the site immediately, though we do read and moderate after the fact to make sure they follow our rules and guidelines.

Thanks for the thanks, and the reviews!
