<u>Dallas-Mavs.com Jersey Contest</u>

To celebrate the re-opening of the Dallas-Mavs.com Forums, we are proud to announce the second Dallas-Mavs.com Jersey Contest! Unlike the first contest where the winners were randomly drawn, this time <u>you</u> have control over the outcome! Here's how it works: To be eligible, you must first be a member of this board. If you aren't already a member, registration is fast, easy, and completely free!

For every message you post, you will receive 1 point.*

For every new member you get to sign up here at the Dallas-Mavs.com Forums, you will receive 15 points.**

On April 18th, the member with the most points will receive either a replica Michael Finley road jersey OR a Dallas Mavericks hockey jersey [photo (http://www.dallas-mavs.com/images/mavs_hockey_jersey.jpg)]. Your choice!The contest officially started on Friday, Feb 23rd, with the re-opening of the forums. Please post any questions or comments you have regarding the contest in this thread. Good luck!

* Members who post spam or junk msgs with the sole purpose of boosting their post totals will be disqualified.

** Once the new member signs up, he or she must post a message in the Contest Referrals Thread (http://www.dallas-mavs.com/forums/messageview.cfm?catid=2&amp;threadid=29) with the name of the user who referred him/her. IP checks will be conducted to make sure everything's legit (meaning, members who create bogus new accounts WILL BE BANNED!)

Allright ROB go and kick some ass why dont you.

Hey guys, just joined up. I saw the post in NBAtalk about this site.
Yes I am a Laker fan, but I don't see the point in trashing other teams, especially on their boards. I'm really a basketball fan and I just love a good game. I moved to Dallas about 3 years ago and have been supporting the hometown Mavs since. I absolutely LOVE what Cuban has done for them in his short time of ownership.

The site looks pretty good, but doesn't to have many people in here yet, which would explain the contest to get people to join/post.
I have a suggestion about this contest. Is there some way you can get an immediate, up-to-date account on the scores? That would be very nice to have and could get some posts going back and forth.

Be talkin' to y'all later!

Welcome to the board dallaslaker i/expressions/face-icon-small-smile.gif .

You can get an update on the point totals by clicking on the &quot;Today&quot; section above. It's not updated in real time but it's close. It does Not include the 15 bonus points for getting new members to sign up though.

03-05-2001, 11:21 AM
Glad to have you aboard dallaslaker! Don't worry about getting flamed here, cuz me and dallmav are going to make sure the trashtalk here is kept to a minimum!

Oh and in addition to clicking the &quot;Today&quot; tab like Rob mentioned, I'll also be posting the top 5 scores every Friday. We've only been up for a little over a week now (previous board got wiped clean when we switched servers) so there's plenty of time for everyone to catch up.

03-06-2001, 10:08 PM
DallasLaker, you used to contribute fairly often to the Mavs' Rant on sportstalk. Where have you been lately?

03-08-2001, 06:43 PM
EvilMav, maybe I've taken over someone else's identity. I haven't really posted that much. I usually just like to check out the post in the morning and in the afternoon before I leave work. I've been posting on this site from home, at night.

03-09-2001, 02:01 PM
1259 messages and 21 sign-ups later, we've now reached the two-week mark! Here are the current point leaders:

3...Evilmav2 (88pts + 1 referral = 103pts)

Remember, we've only been up for two weeks. With SIX weeks to go, there's still plenty of time to catch up!

03-12-2001, 10:19 PM
Rob and dallmav will have to share the credit for me joining. I hope thats allowed.

03-12-2001, 11:18 PM
I'm cool with that..though it's not like Rob needs any more points i/expressions/face-icon-small-wink.gif

03-13-2001, 10:50 AM
Give my shared credit to scooter. He posted it there before I did and everyone just ignored him. Besides, he needs it i/expressions/face-icon-small-smile.gif .

Rob has achieved the sign of the devil...

03-30-2001, 06:52 PM
Thats a bad sign

04-10-2001, 10:00 AM
DJ, I've got a suggestion for you to consider. When a thread has multiple pages, it always starts you off with the first one when you first enter the thread and also when you add a post. How about changing this in reverse order with the latest showing most recently. It's kind of annoying because I'm on a unix machine at work with Netrape and it absolutely sucks. I have to wait like 15 second for each page to come up and some these threads are getting pretty long.

Anyway, just something to consider. Still love the site. I've notice that NBAtalk has seriously declined in Mavs fans. I think Mavinator is pretty much the only person to grace the boards. I read, but don't actually post that much. Keep up the good work!!

04-10-2001, 10:06 AM
dallaslaker , I believe you can do that by clicking on the &quot;Customize&quot; tab at the top. You can change it to however you want I think. Might want to give that a try i/expressions/face-icon-small-smile.gif .

rob, you truly are $Rob$. I was wondering the same thing.

04-10-2001, 10:46 AM
Thanks BBL i/expressions/face-icon-small-smile.gif .

04-10-2001, 11:04 AM
Thanks for helping the guys out Rob i/expressions/face-icon-small-smile.gif I just woke up from an 18hr sleep. Well actually I got up at 9 last night to eat and watch some tv, but I've pretty much been out all day and night! Worked on another web site on Sunday and ended up pulling an all-nighter. Can't believe I actually finished a whole stinkin web site in less than 24hrs i/expressions/face-icon-small-smile.gif Now maybe I can finally get some work done on this site (then again, there's that term paper for my law class..).

04-13-2001, 10:59 PM

When does this end? I wasn't going to try, but I have quite a few posts and thought I might as well give it a shot. I don't think I'll catch up though.

04-14-2001, 01:57 PM
Contest ends this coming Wednesday, April 18th. Unless you get like a couple dozen people to join the board, I don't think you'll be able to give Rob a run for his money i/expressions/face-icon-small-wink.gif You can also try to convince Rob to push back the contest too, but I doubt he goes for it i/expressions/face-icon-small-smile.gif

04-14-2001, 10:52 PM
What ever. I'm not here to &quot;win&quot; anything i/expressions/face-icon-small-smile.gif .

04-14-2001, 11:26 PM
Uh huh suuure Rob i/expressions/face-icon-small-wink.gif

04-14-2001, 11:38 PM
Nah...I don't really have a legit. shot at all.i/expressions/face-icon-small-happy.gif

04-15-2001, 12:15 AM
Ok, well...ummm, The contest is extended to a further date yet to be determind.

Cool DJ i/expressions/face-icon-small-happy.gif .

04-15-2001, 03:25 PM
Rob has been kind enough to drop out of the contest and let someone else have a shot at the jersey! Since it was his decision to do so, I asked him to set the new contest end date. His decision? May 30th Memorial Day i/expressions/face-icon-small-smile.gif Here are the current point leaders:

1...Evilmav2 (512pts + 1 referral = 527pts)

2...Hales233 (474pts)

3...LAM0015 (357pts)

4...scooterj5 (278pts + 1 referral = 293pts)

5...dallmav (198pts + 4 referrals = 258pts)

Flying Tiger (228pts), Mavinator (214pts), and Madape (204pts) are close behind.

04-16-2001, 03:51 AM
Nice work Rob i/expressions/face-icon-small-smile.gif

04-16-2001, 10:32 PM
Evilmav referred me.

&lt;&lt;LOL - I had to check the spelling twice. I orginally typed Evilmav reefered me, which has a totally different meaning.&gt;&gt;

Sorry to have posted to the wrong thread.

04-18-2001, 03:52 PM
LOL Mavs#1... No reefering going on around here. Boozing yes... Reefering no...


04-25-2001, 10:57 PM
Is this thread supposed to be falling i/expressions/face-icon-small-confused.gif ? .

04-25-2001, 11:36 PM
Yea this thread was only supposed to be on top until the end of the original contest date. So that's why it's falling. It's weird how a new reply doesn't bump it up though.. I'll post a new contest thread later this week with a points update.
