Sure we will have competitions in the future but we don't plan on changing the sweepstakes.

I really don't think people here abuse the user ratings with forum posts to gain more entries into the sweepstakes but I think some may with regards to the Folding tags and extra entries you get for contributing to distributed computing.

Personally I'd love to see a regular contest to get more people into folding. It wouldn't even have to be hardware but could be a shiny new HWC coffee cup or a new fangled HWC T-Shirt or case badge. But thats not to dismiss the possibility of say EVGA wanting to raffle off a nice 280 GTX to the folding Canucks
I agree completely, well said...

I like our present sweepstakes a lot because I just don't have the time to compete in anything and enjoy getting credit just for being apart of the community to the degree that I am.
I wonder - if some people FAIL to answer the skill testing question.....that must really suck
