15001: Pick your own title (requires admin approval) Blue Ribbons
How are Blue Ribbons (BRs) awarded and how much are they worth?
Each Blue Ribbon is worth 2 EVGA bucks. EVGA bucks can only be used on the EVGA website when you decide to order a product from the EVGA web store. This applies to the EVGA.com web stores in the USA and Europe only at this time. EVGA bucks cannot be used for shipping costs!
Blue Ribbons are primarily given to strong technical posts. Strong technical posts can range from self written do-it-yourself guides; a self made video review of an EVGA product, explanations of over clocking settings for a particular motherboard, extremely strong Mods Rigs posting with pictures, etc.
We also award one BR for each forum milestone you meet (see above
We do NOT award BRs for posts about Birthdays, Personal Health issues, folding@home*, humor, and news articles (unless you wrote the article yourself without copying anyone else). We also do not award BRs for anyone who writes a forum post that is a near duplicate of another previously awarded BR post.
On occasion we might award a BR to someone who has donated FREE software or hardware to someone else BUT we will not award 10 BRs to the same person who has given out 10 items (hardware and/or software).
*folding@home has its own promotion program so we do not award BRs for anyone who achieves a folding milestone, but on occasion we might award a BR to someone who has developed a strong technical post (of their own accord-not copied) to help others with folding such as a self written ‘do-it-yourself’ guides.
EVGA Management and the EVGA Forum Moderators reserve the right to rescind a BR if we find that the forum post in question is a duplicate of another post or is copied in whole and/or in part from copyrighted material from another forum website. If you write a strong technical post in your own words and reference further information from another forum or website this is acceptable.
We can on a very limited case by case basis award a BR for exceptional originality even if it is not technically worthy. We may also award a BR for a large number of helpful posts within one thread by the same person or a unique post that has been exceptionally helpful.
