    Contest - The 8th Annual NYYFans.com Prediction Contest

    This year's contest is up and ready.

    Here is the link to the contest:
    http://rltranstech.com/nyyfans/

    (Thanks so much Lou!)


    Here are the Rules:

    1. You must be a member of the NYYFans forums to participate in this contest. (Fans of any team may particpate.)
      1. If you are not already a member, please sign up.
    2. You must remain a posting member of the forums from now through the end of the 2009 baseball season.
    3. Here's how the contest works:
    4. The first section of the contest is a set of simple yes-or-no questions on whether a player will be on the opening day roster, plus a couple of other Opening Day/early season questions. (Note: If a player is on the Disabled List to start the season, he will be counted as a YES as part of the 25 man roster.)
    5. The second section involves Yankee firsts in 2009. Choose the player you feel will attain each first.
    6. In the third section, you'll see a Yankee player and a target amount for a particular stat. Simply pick whether the actual value for that stat will be over or under that target.
      • If the target stat is reached exactly, the choice of Over will win.
      • Note: The stats for each player are only stats compiled as a Yankee, so if you feel that a player will not remain a Yankee all year, keep that in mind when predicting.
    7. In the next two sections there will be a few questions about the Yankees in general. Answer those questions in the space provided.
    8. There are seven tiebreaker questions that should be filled out and will only be used if there is a tie for first place. If the players who are tied don&pos;t answer any tiebreaker questions correctly, the winner will be determined based on whose responses are as closest to the correct answers.
    9. The deadline for entry is Tuesday, March 17, 2009.
    10. Please feel free to direct any questions about the contest itself to JDPNYY on NYYFans.com.
    11. Technical questions about this web site can be directed to sweet_lou_14 on NYYFans.com.
    You must use your exact NYYFans.com User Name and if you have signed up for the 2008 Contest or the OffSeason Contest, you must use the same password.

    Write down your password. Please write down your password. I implore you to write down your password. After you write down your password, put it in a safe place, perhaps in a safety deposit box or something. If you are signing up for the first time, please pick a password other than your NYYFans.com password. Don't let that confuse you... You MUST use your exact User Name for the contest... (just choose a different password... then write down the password and put it in a safe place).
    Whatever you think...
    Well, you're wrong.

    I'd like to take the opportunity to thank Lou for his amazing contribution to this Contest. He has put a lot of time, energy and hard earned dough into this Event.

    The Contest looks amazing and the technology that Lou has added has made this contest that much better and more interesting all year long.


    Thanks Lou.

    I'm just hoping to finish in the middle of the pack to be honest.

    You're welcome John, it's a lot of fun. This is the third contest we've kicked off together in a little over a year, and they definitely get easier each time.

    I should point out to everyone that this is the first time we've had two contests running simultaneously on the site. I had to make various code changes to make this possible, and I was only able to do some basic testing to make sure things looked good. If you see anything that isn't working properly, please let me know ASAP so I can work out the kinks.

    One last thing, because it's the only thing about the contest that causes me some pain ... PLEASE take to heart my sincere plea that you not lose your password. The site does not have a lost-password function for two simple reasons: (a) it doesn't ask you for your email address when you register, and (b) it has no ability to get your email address or contact you through the NYYFans site. Maybe there will come a day when we'll link the sites closer together, but that isn't even remotely in my jurisdiction.

    And finally, I lied about the above being the last thing. Here's the real last thing. If you enjoy the contest, and you enjoy NYYFans in general, please think hard about donating to NYYFans to keep this community going. This is so important that we actually thought about requiring a donation to participate in the contest this year. We decided against it, but we're not above reminding you that this place provides a lot of information, entertainment, camaraderie, and opportunities to make fun of Dustin Pedroia. So if you can afford it, please donate. Here's how:

    Hmmmm. How do I register? I click on the link but I see no place to register, and the prediction contest page does not accept my information from this forum.

    A big thanks to John and Sweet Lou for organizing one of this site's highlights yet again. The economy has affected my business, as it has most others both large and small, but I can still pony up a $100.00 cash award for the contest winner. I'll register for The Contest and make my picks shortly with the slim hope of becoming its first repeat winner. If on the odd chance that does happen I will happily award the cash prize to the runner up.

    Thanks for the heads-up ... just fixed that. You should be able to register now.

    As you point out, the contest page cannot accept your login info for NYYFans, as the sites are not linked.

    Hey, guys,

    I can't get into the contest. I forgot my password from last year and there is no prompt to get a new one. I can't register again because I'm already registered. Help...please! Thanks.
