    Unfortunately, there's a good chance that our millionth member was a spambot :(

    I will get my digging head on and find out for y'all.

    Here we are at 3 million posts...
    I thought a month ago that Aurora Bell was going to win that part... hope someone actually checks...
    I could swear that until today or yesterday, there were over 1,030,000 members. I wonder if I'm imagining that the number dropped by at least 10,000...

    Anyway, congrats AMHD people. Not a lot of warm feelings for the people in charge of the contest.

    Rick ignored my personal Q to him months ago, so I waited patiently for the second half. He's on site today, answering other questions, so I guess the contest was a sham.

    Next stop: CEO of AMHD, Ram.

    And I was promised a toaster almost 7 years ago.

    And RAM is no longer with us.

    Holy cow. I do this for FREE. I volunteer my time to answer questions as well as moderate the site. Us moderators never get a word of THANKS much less any monetary gift. Not even a Seasons Greetings, or a Christmas Card... Nothing, nada, zilch. Not even a pat on the back for work well done.

    J_9, this was a contest with two prizes. Where were you? It's the principle. Good grief.
    I don't welch, personally.

    Oh and 2 other tiny details:
    I volunteer here for free too. Does anyone not?
    And the owners of this site make PLENTY of money off all those pesky ads that pop up after every keyword that is typed.
    So, please

    I'm not sure if that 'personal advice for xx$/minute' ever worked for anyone. I'm not certain if there is any advert revenue sharing but I assume not.

    This is your standard Web 2.0 user generated content site where the users add all the content... for free.

    It's very easy to block the ads. I'm always surprised by the sheer number of them when I access the site from a computer that is not my own.

    HUH??
    I'm a greedy mercenary bastard for expecting a company that holds a contest to honor their promise to the winners?
    You either aren't aware of the contest or you are jerking my chain.

    Yea, I remember that. In the meantime there were a few staff changes weren't there? Maybe the ownership decided they couldn't do it anymore and didn't communicate that.

    Cliff and Ram, both paid employees, have both gone on to life without us. Rickj is the one who created the contest and established the prizes, and am not sure how he figures into the ownership of the site. Roel is the official owner, from what I understand.

    To me their silence says it all. I would assume this contest has fallen by the wayside.
