The randomly selected winners are:

coraanne

I'm at work early today and am feeling like putting together a little scheme, so here's what I came up with...

' . substr('//www.dpchallenge.com/images/subscribe/gift_membership.gif', strrpos('//www.dpchallenge.com/images/subscribe/gift_membership.gif', '/') + 1) . '

I'll be giving out up to FOUR (4) One Year Gift Memberships, how about that! This is not restricted to non-members, either. If you're already a member, you can add another year to your membership. {if you aren't interested in membership, you can win and give it to anyone of your choice. *Amendment 1}

' . substr('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_portfolio/35357/thumb/213791.jpg', strrpos('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_portfolio/35357/thumb/213791.jpg', '/') + 1) . '' . substr('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_portfolio/35357/thumb/213791.jpg', strrpos('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_portfolio/35357/thumb/213791.jpg', '/') + 1) . '' . substr('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_portfolio/35357/thumb/213791.jpg', strrpos('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_portfolio/35357/thumb/213791.jpg', '/') + 1) . '' . substr('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_portfolio/35357/thumb/213791.jpg', strrpos('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_portfolio/35357/thumb/213791.jpg', '/') + 1) . '' . substr('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_portfolio/35357/thumb/213791.jpg', strrpos('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_portfolio/35357/thumb/213791.jpg', '/') + 1) . '

So what's the catch? What's the deal? How do I get a One Year Gift Membership from Slippy?

Here's my scheme, it's an attempt to buy myself into the Top Favorite Photogrphers list. Yes, I have no shame to go along with no talent, but I do have some $$$, a silly imagination, and a need for validation through the approval of others.

For every 50 people who add me to their favorites, I will draw a name for Gift Membership. There are already 33 that will be included in the draw. (If you're one of the original 33 and prefer not to be included in the draw, let me know.)
-If my favorites get to 49, there will be no draw.
-If my favorites get to 50, there will be one draw.
-If my favorites get to 99, there will still be only one draw.
-If my favorites get to 100, there will be two draws.
-If my favorites get to 149, there will still be only two draws.
-If my favorites get to 150, there will be three draws.
-If my favorites get to 199, there will still be only three draws.
-If my favourites get to 200, there will be four draws.
-Four draws is the limit on my credit card, sorry.

So to enter this draw, just go to my profile by clicking on "Strikeslip" up and to the left, and click on the link in my profile that says ' . substr('//www.dpchallenge.com/images/addfavoriteuser.gif', strrpos('//www.dpchallenge.com/images/addfavoriteuser.gif', '/') + 1) . 'Add this photographer to your favorites! How easy is that!?!?!

The submissions for this draw will be running until Saturday, October 8, when I will put all of the names in a container of some sort and draw totally at random. I will then give the Gift Memberships and post the names of the winners here! Sweet! I do reserve the right to make the draws at an earlier date if additions slow down, or I get bored, but I will not draw the draw out past Oct 8 unless I'm hospitalized from a car accident or whatever. Maybe I'll make one draw every once in a while, maybe not. You are at the mercy of my whims. But I will be making all draws by Oct 8.

I would appreciate it if you kept me in your favorites list after the draws are all done, I don't take up much space, and it's a good way to keep track of my latest antics. But of course, you don't have to, though I do hold grudges. ;-)

I think I've covered everything off pretty well, so...

LET THE GAMES BEGIN!

' . substr('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_portfolio/35357/thumb/213774.gif', strrpos('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_portfolio/35357/thumb/213774.gif', '/') + 1) . '

-edit to add *Amendment 1 - {if you aren't interested in membership, you can win and give it to anyone of your choice. *Amendment 1}

Oversight on my part.....thought you were there already!

You are *shameless* !! :-)
09/27/2005 08:51:55 AM · #5
I'll add ya to my favs......but I don't want a membership renewal. I think after mine runs out I will just stay a registered user for awhile and be like the black sheep of the family. ;-)
09/27/2005 08:59:29 AM · #6
I added you back in June, slippy. I was reading your mind :P
09/27/2005 09:57:53 AM · #7
Damn you, with your scheme you have beaten me :{
09/27/2005 10:08:50 AM · #8
Hey, my membership's due in November. Sure, I'm in.

And when I looked at the list, it seems I'd be in good company too!

09/27/2005 10:21:28 AM · #9
can i add you as a favourite and remove you as soon as you're finished drawing? ;)
09/27/2005 10:24:54 AM · #10
I am happy to be #51

Of course!

-edit... hmmm (thinking of method to discourage removals...) AHa! But that may void your entry into future, exciting draws which may be held in the house of Slippy. Would you want to risk losing the chance of having a date with two Playboy Bunnies?

Wait a minute...so the whole 'favourites' thing is more of a popularity contest than a nod to one's photographic skill?

Geez, who would have frickin' thought?

What will happen next? Will the 'mark this comment as useful' button be simply to indicate that the comment has been read? The whole system is falling apart!

Weee, there's at least one draw that's going to happen... will there be more?
09/27/2005 10:28:39 AM · #14
Gee Slippy, some things just can't be bought. Fortunately for you, this isn't one of them. ' . substr('//instagiber.net/smiliesdotcom/contrib/sally/lol.gif', strrpos('//instagiber.net/smiliesdotcom/contrib/sally/lol.gif', '/') + 1) . '

Actually, I was surprised you weren't in my list. So why not.

Now if I could find one more myself, I'd hit 100. But I am not going to stoop to that. Cough. ' . substr('//img.photobucket.com/albums/v53/theantidote/suspicious.gif', strrpos('//img.photobucket.com/albums/v53/theantidote/suspicious.gif', '/') + 1) . ' Let's see, prizes...

ANARCHY! ANARCHY! If you want to hang with popular crowd, you'd better join the Minions of Slippy. I throw the best parties, and there'll be a fish tank available to stick our heads in for portraits!

I love Newfies!

I'm the 57th to add.

What are the odds of 43 more desparate DPCers buying into the madness?

Combined with the odds of 1 in 50 after that, I'm not holding my breath any more -
09/27/2005 10:44:53 AM · #19
The best odds will be 2%. But you have to play to win!
09/27/2005 10:54:33 AM · #20
I'll throw my hat in the ring, but since I just became a paid member, I'd be more than happy to donate my prize to a non-paid member... if I should win that is... ;)

Disclaimer
Offer void where prohibited. Recipient must be legal drinking age and own a car but not a drivers' license. Recipient must also pass a written test using nothing but a mouse and bag full of shredded mozarella cheese. Should no suitable Recipient be found, Donator reserves the right to donate proceeds to cover the cost of Slippy's extensive therapy sessions.

Ha ha! TOO FUNNY! I'm in! ROFL
09/27/2005 11:20:52 AM · #25
Another Canadian has added you!

I've never had a membership, so sure, I'd like to have one. :)

Good luck in getting your number of favorites, oh yeah, and some of your photos are really good!
