Our profile fields have been updated recently so we are conducting a promotion for our community members to update their profile with accurate information. This is important to the health of our community; an accurate profile helps us determine authentic members from profiles set up by spammers.
Your name will be entered automatically into our weekly drawings when your profile is updated and all required fields are completed AND an avatar is present (see Avatar sites for ideas on updating your avatar).
To update your profile:
Once you have done this, you are automatically entered into a weekly drawing for a for 13.5" Bendable BunnyPeople™ Doll AND the drawing for the grand prize: a Dell Inspiron Mini 1018 4034CLB Netbook. This promotion will run from November 7 through December 15. We will have four weekly winners and one grand prize winner that will be notified via email (so make sure your email is accurate!).
Winners will also be announced in this thread weekly.
For a complete description and eligibility of Engage community drawings, click on the blue Intel Bunny Person at the top of this thread.
Neil - each community member can choose to have a photo as their avatar. Currently my avatar is a picture of me at the grand canyon, but it has been various cartoon versions of myself. So whether it is a photo or a cartoon image doesn't matter. What does matter is that it is a visual representation choosen by the user.
What we want to encourage is for each user to find or select a visual that represents who they are.
The avatar is something that appears every time you post. and many users have not updated from the default which is shown in this profile picture and we want to change that. We want to see more of the users profiles throughout the community.
Congratulations to our first weekly winners of our profile update drive!
These teachers engage members have won a 13.5" Bendable Intel BunnyPeople™ Doll and are now automatically entered into the grand prize drawing for a Dell Inspiron Mini 1018 4034CLB Netbook.
In order to win you must have an udpated profile, with a image and an avatar representation of yourself. Still 3 weeks left to participate - update your profile TODAY!
Updating your profile helps other community members know more about you. I like adding people as friends after I have seen their community contributions because they have interesting things to say or great resources to share and this is one way I can "follow" them in the community.
Mark - I don't recall exactly where this particular picture was taken from and if we were close to Phantom Ranch or not, but it is the Grand Canyon from this fall. As for updating your profile I took a look at your's and it looks like it is updated. I do suggest choosing a different Avatar - something that represents who you are instead of the default- everyone sees that picture every time you post in the community, but if you are happy with the default- then keep it.
I'm gonna take a stab at Mark's question about the photo location. I don't believe that's Phantom. You can see a bit of the Esplanade which runs west/east about halfway down, and what looks like it might be a village is really rocks jutting out from the right side- rocks behind Julia. You can't see the bottom from this view. I believe she was sitting on the rim, probably right across from the curio shop which sells ice cream. She's a bit West of El Tovar and a bit East of the Kolb Studio.
Just my two cents' worth, and not very useful.
Thank you to everyone who has taken the time to update thier profile! The following individuals won a 13.5" Bendable BunnyPeople Doll:
And our grand prize drawing winner was Tasha, a 5th grade teacher from North Carolina who won a Dell Inspiration Mini!!
