The one millionth comment countdown: So you want to know about prizes?
Comments are coming in at breakneck speed, especially since we put counters on our sites Monday.
In fact, look at the graph below, which shows total comments per day since Sept. 1. You can see just how many more comments we've been getting since the start of our Millionth Comment Countdown on Sept. 16.
All that leads me to believe everyone is in a hurry to get those "possibly fabulous prizes" just as quickly as possible. Well, the time has come for me to make plain what we'll be offering our user who correctly predicts when the 1,000,000th comment is posted.
From LJWorld.com: A megaphone, so you have a little bit of help in getting your message across
From KUsports.com: Two tickets to the Nov. 14 KU-NU game.
From lawrence.com: Two concert tickets to a local concert that fits you. (Ben Folds has been mentioned as possible...)
From The World Company in general: Dinner with members of the staffs in Lawrence. A tour of the News Center. Various mugs, pens, T-shirts and other World Company schwag. If the winner isn't in the Topeka-Lawrence-Kansas City area, we may substitute the local dinner for a gift certificate.
That's it for now. We'd also like to give some public recognition to both the person who wins the contest as well as the individual who posts comment 1,000,000.
As of noon on Tuesday, we're just a few comments away from punching through 997,000. It won't be long now.
