BTW, how many times can I enter? ;)

As many as you would like. If you have 5 pedals you want to enter, that is 5 entry fees AND 5 possible chances of winning ;)

At the behest of some forumites, I am re-listing the prize pool for those of you who have joined us late  ;D

PRIZES:

Prizes will be awarded in order of ranking. Basically, when all of the entries are judged, they will be given a final score. The 8 highest scores will be deemed the winners. The winner with the highest score will have his/her choice of prizes from the pool. When that person chooses then the next highest scoring winner will have their choice of the remaining prizes, and so on until the final winner (8th place) will receive the remaining prize.

Prize#1 -- $25 in credit to Smallbear electronics w/ free shipping. Courtesy of Steve.
Prize#2 – Custom Vocalizer pedal build shipped to winner. Courtesy of Digi2t.
Prize#3 – Custom Digitech XP ALL (XP 100, 200, 300, and 400 in one box! And you don't have to power it down to switch effects!!!) Shipped to winner. Courtesy of Govmnt_Lacky.
Prize#4 – Custom “Stupid Pedal Tricks” Pedal shipped to winner. Courtesy of pinkjimiphoton.
Prize#5 – Store credit to DIYStomp store in the amount of the entry fees (minus shipping costs). Courtesy of the entrants and Aron.
Prize#6 -- A prize pack of your choice of 3 PCBs from JMK PCBs shipped to the winner in accordance to the rules in the initial post. Courtesy of Jacob

ALL OF THE 8 WINNERS WILL RECEIVE A LARGE (Sorry folks... Large is the ONLY size available) DIYSTOMPBOXES T-SHIRT COURTESY OF ARON AND DIYSTOMPBOXES.COM.

Deadline for entry fees is 23:59 on October 18th. Contest ends at 23:59 on Turkey Day... November 22nd.

there is no limit to how many entries you can do, but you have to pay an entry fee for each circuit.

so...wanna ensure you win? enter 8 or 9 projects for 80 or 90 bucks, and odds are, seeing as how there's not enough entrants, you may well take one of the prizes home.

unless your stuff really sucks!!  :icon_mrgreen:

Considering that an XP-1000, which pales in comparison to Greg's XP-ALL, goes for between 350 and 500 clams on EBay (when available!), I would enter at least 5 or 6 entries.

My Colorsound Vocalizer clone is already boxed, and ready to ship. Battery included! :icon_eek: Just needs a winner.

Come on people, tangible prizes here, no guff!

If some of you are jaded from the "1000 Competition", this is the forums chance at redemtion. We're adamant on running a tight ship here. This is what will ultimately ensure that this competition succeeds.

Besides, personally, I value my name and reputation enough to make sure that this baby works properly. After all, my name and reputation is only thing that will remain after I'm dead and buried, so I don't feel like messing with that. :icon_lol:

It's beginning to feel as if this competition was called the "Touch a Leper Competition".  :icon_lol:

I love these forum contests. Some of the most inspiring, entertaining and killer work out there comes from these. Looking forward to seeing the entries!

No. If it was called that, there would probably be 100+ entries by now.  :icon_lol: :icon_lol: :icon_lol:

This is the last time I am going to post about the following topic until October 18th.....

The submission deadline is the deadline. If builders want to wait until then to enter... that's cool! I can understand not wanting to put down your hard earned $10 unless you are absolutely sure! I can agree with that.

I will only attribute the "lack of entries thus far" to that fact!

Personally, I am far too busy to worry about it. I could be spending my time with the family or building some more boxes!  :icon_mrgreen:

I will say this, if we do not get the required entries by the required time... it will be a shame however, I will be comforted by the fact that we tried to do something good and honest for the forum, for Aron, and for us.

Also, it won't hurt to use some of the XP ALL eBay money to get a new axe!  :icon_twisted: I have been wanting one for a while now  :'(

That is all from me regarding this subject until October 18th..... NOW GET SIGNED UP AND GET TO BUILDING!!!!!!

+1 on how fascinatingly slow the contestants are dropping in. I mean I started a "donate to this site" thread and people donated well over a hundred dollars to Aron within days with absolutely zero chance of getting any money back. If you can donate, why not enter this comp if only to make sure someone will win.

Keep this site live and ad free, donate a dollar or twenty (and add this link to your sig)

Just entered, and started designing something just for this. It might be completed just in time to be pedal #50 for me, provided I don't box up too many things between now and TG. :)
