The Points System
I will give max points for quality comments that are engaging not simple one liner comments. If you purchase tweets, votes or buy anything to influence wining this contest you will be disqualified. The final decision is not made from total points but the quality of the blog article. All decisions are made by me and once announced will be final. You can offer innovative ideas to encourage voting and engaging but it has to be indirectly and not with cash money. Example: You cannot purchase Facebook likes, Tweets, or any other votes.
It’s also important to understand what is allowed and what’s not allowed. You are 100% allowed to ask for tweets, shares, likes or whatever else you need to do in order to win. You can private message users on any social platform etc but do this at your own risk as many members my get offended and upset.
