Contest is now over-AND
the winner of the contest is Susan Schoppe. She was the top commenter on the site and we will be sending Susan her Amazon certificate soon. Thanks for participating and until the next one. CONGRATS Susan!
It is going to be a September to Remember with the season 7 premiere and Sunset on the Beach only a few weeks away now. To kick it off we thought we would run a September to Remembe contest and give away something valuable. Originally, we thought that since to any Hawaii Five O and Alex O’Loughlin fan, the season 6 DVD is like gold, we would give that away. BUT after much thought, we decided that we probably don’t have the rights to run a contest like that and decided instead on a $25 Amazon eGift Certificate. (based on US dollars).
The winner of the certificate can put it towards the DVD, a previous season DVD, a Hawaii Five O t-shirt, catch up on a lot of prior Alex O’Loughlin material buy some Alex O’Loughlin merchandise, or frankly do whatever she/he wants with it.
So if that excites you read below to find out how to participate and the terms of the contest.
Here is how it works!
We decided to make this a participation contest so YOU will control your own destiny. The person that has the most points at the end of the contest period WINS. It is that simple.
Who can participate: Everyone no matter where you are located can participate except for us site admins, of course.*

Here is the point breakdown:
Registration – 25 points
Site Visit – 2 points per visit * you can only visit once per hour to avoid spamming
Post/Page Comment– 10 points per comment
* comments must be more than a few words so things like “good post” or “good job” or “I love Alex” will not be counted. The intent is to encourage community conversations onsite. You can comment more than once per post only if there is at least one other commenter on that post and it is in flow of the conversation.
Post Submission – 50 points per accepted submission

IMPORTANT NOTE: In order to ensure true fairness and true participation, the Amazon eGift Certificate prize will ONLY be awarded if there is “enough” participation. The description of “enough” is “total points of ALL participants must be a minimum of 2500 points”. That should be an easy target with all the visitors we have coming to the site but you should also SHARE this post to help spread the word and help meet this requirement so the prize can be rewarded.*
