For those of you who don’t know, SOS and The Monstrometer game is a project maintained for free by me and sometimes my friend Graham and a whole lot of helpful volunteers like you who pitch in whenever you can with true stories and advice and sometimes even to help make another set of videos like the 13 werewolf videos coming soon-ish, The Lupine Life of Louis Pine.
So in honor of all of you and your awesome stories and helpful tips to me and each another, I am finally implementing a suggestion that came from the Cyborg p5t5r and the gone-but-never-forgotten werewolf Ashpaw, among others. Finally A Survivor of the Month prize and front-page profile.
It goes like this. On every full moon, one of the helpyest survivor of that month will receive a little prize in their email – a ten dollars (US) iTunes gift card number that you can redeem at the iTunes store in your country, AND I will try to summarize your story as accurately as I can on the front page to cut through some of the confusion that results from the fact that Graham is so lazy he is still working on your changes to the site.
It’s just a little prize but I only make 12.00/hr at Pizza del Muerto and besides it will come with a lot of big thanks for helping us all survive in 2012. I’ve asked Scarly to help pick the Survivor of the Month because she already got a prize on One Million day so she’s not eligible. Maybe Graham will help her pick.
If there are too many we may have to draw names. If so, I’ll do the draw like this. For each helpful comment or story you contributed that month, I’ll put your name into the “hat” once (actually it’s my iPhone App but you get the idea). That way the odds of the most helpful person winning increases and you get more chances to win the more often you comment.
Anyway, it’ll be hard to pick just one because there are so many but hopefully over time we’ll be able to get all of you with a little thank you. You may not realize this, but part of the reason this site doesn’t change the way it functions very much very fast is because nobody wants to lose any of the vital survival info written here by you and so Graham is always trying to find a way to make the changes without losing anything. But since there’s always new stuff, he’s always behind.
So thanks for keeping on keeping on whenever you can and look for the first Survivor of the Month on the Wind Moon in March!
I just hope it’s not a leprechaun…
