    I posted https://hubpages.com/community/forum/34 … ost4139580 . I meant it.

    I offer a contest prize of $25. And I am a poor person, stimulus check emboldened me.

    The remainder of May. Best article submitted. I get to choose whatever article I want.

    Not a joke. I will pay.

    Hopefully, this contest will inspire the more prosperous among us to do the same. If I can do it, anyone can. HP can simply transfer the $25 from the contest sponsor's account to the designated winner's account.

    Just got an email from HP informing me that one of my back catalog articles from nearly a decade ago has been picked for a niche site.

    However, the new article I posted this past Saturday (which I intended to be my entry into this contest) continues to languish in Pending Hell after more than 48 hours. (sigh)

    The HP lords move in mysterious ways.

    I think I have decided upon my selection criteria. For this reason,

    THE NUMBER OF ENTRIES IS INDEED LIMITED TO TEN.

  24. paradigmsearch profile image67
    paradigmsearchposted 2 months ago

    I've decided we've all had enough of grammar, punctuation, spelling, SEO, topic suitability, content, and all the rest of it. It just wears one down. Then I remembered that HP has also done lotteries. So why not I?

    So that is what I will do. For me to pick an article on merit implies that the other articles are not meritorious. Besides, a lottery will be much more fun; especially this lottery. The number draw will be done by an impartial, third-party. It will happen online and in real-time; that way we can all share in the drama.  No, I'm not doing a video. The Dow Jones Index will pick the winning number. More about that next week; which day, which digit, and all that.

    Entry limit remains at 10. There are still three entry slots available. The first seven entries have already been assigned a number; three more to go.

        If there are still any contest openings on Sunday, then HP Staffers are invited to enter the contest when Sunday arrives (HP time). After all, times are tough all over.

        Folks, please do remember; only 10 contestants are allowed. Any more than that would botch up my planned lottery system and will be disqualified.

    paradigmsearchposted 2 months ago

    I'll be posting details about the contest later today. Meanwhile, I see the national news is still chaos.

  37. paradigmsearch profile image67
    paradigmsearchposted 2 months ago

    As mentioned earlier, Mr. Dow Jones will be picking the winner of this contest. Here’s the details:

    The digit to the immediate left of the decimal point is our key number.

    As an example: if the Dow closes at 25,123.45, then the winning number would be 3.
    Another example: if the Dow closes at 25,678.90, then the winning number would be 8.

    This digit placement selection should provide sufficient drama and intrigue from about a half-hour before the close and after trading has finished for the day. Even though the trading is done, the Dow may still be receiving and calculating lagging data. We won’t know the actual winning number until the site states:”Official Close MM/DD/YYYY. That timely note will appear below the number. That could take time or it could not. Someone is going to be having an elevated heartbeat for a little while.

    Once the site states ”Official Close” we will know the winning number. Different media sites have been known to post slightly conflicting numbers; this is due to benign causes. For this reason the below site will be our final arbiter. Right or wrong; whatever it says, goes.

    https://markets.businessinsider.com/ind … /dow_jones (right-click for separate tab)

    The Index number we are interested in is at upper-left. Ignore the data below the graph. That is an entirely different mess with different parameters and differently derived data; it is irrelevant to the contest. For our purposes; that large, upper-left number above the graph is our sole lottery determinator. After all, all we are looking for is something that provides an impartial random number in an interesting way.

    I am posting this draft early, purpose being to see if there are any potential problems I have overlooked. Everyone, including me, can be checking out the site for the next few days. Hopefully, any potential problems will be spotted beforehand.

    THE ACTUAL LOTTERY DAY HAS NOT BEEN SELECTED YET. I’ll give at least a day’s notice.

    It would be nice if the riots stopped first.

    Well. The ticker page that will be picking the winner worked fine again today. However, they have fallen down on the job as far as using the "Official Closing" label; so I'll be scrapping that particular nuance. Shouldn't be a problem, the contest remains on for tomorrow.
