And the winner is...


The winner of the Pearl Export is Russ. Congratulations Russ!

Russ accumulated points through a variety of means, mostly articles, links, and VIP membership and is now a proud owner of a beautiful new Pearl Export drum set.

This was a really close contest with no obvious front runner. Participation was great as well. Thanks!

We will be giving away free Drumset Connect t-shirts to all participants of the contest. Please PM us with your mailing address and t-shirt size if you would like one.

There will be another Drumset Connect contest soon so be on the look out for that!

Sure, we will release that sometime in the next couple of days. Drummermom, you were a close 2nd place.

We've gotten some comments that the results seem unfair and I can see where you're coming from. However, Russ received most of his points from articles and links. There are about 5 articles that we still have not come around to publishing yet.

Sorry about that. Next time we will make sure things are much more clear cut.

I don't understand (and am slightly disappointed with) comments that the results seem unfair. The only result has been "this person won". I guess it just shows people really wanted that kit.

Congratulations Russ and I'd say to everyone let's keep everything in the spirit that's intended.

Contest Points Breakdown


Since some people wanted a breakdown of the points for the contest, here are the points breakdown for the top 4.

Russ
6 threads x 2 = 12
59 posts x 1 = 59
10 articles x 20 = 200
8 links x 25 = 200
VIP x 75 = 75
= 546

Drummermom
63 threads x 2 = 126
154 posts x 1 = 154
1 review x 20 = 20
11 pics x 5 = 55
6 links x 25 = 150
= 505

full metal
22 threads x 2 = 44
126 posts x 1 = 126
4 articles x 20 = 80
9 pics x 5 = 45
5 games x 10 = 50
= 345

malletjazz
10 threads x 2 = 20
101 posts x 1 = 101
3 articles x 20 = 60
2 reviews x 20 = 40
16 pics x 5 = 80
= 301

Unfortunately, the contest didn't go as smoothly as planned. There were a lot of gray areas that needed to be addressed. Things will be much more clear cut for next time.

For example, we decided in the beginning that we would only count links if they generate 15 clicks to our site or more. This is all tracked in our site logs. We purposely didn't announce this because otherwise people would just start clicking their own links. Next time, we won't even let that be a part of the contest since it was such a huge factor in this one.

Sweetness!
Sorry about the delay in my posting. I didn't know it would cause such a commotion. I've been pretty busy with work and school and such and have been unable to really dedicate a lot of time on the computer.
