!CBA Contest

From Electriki
Jump to navigationJump to search


2011. New year. New resolutions. Remember the ones you've made last year? Sure you don't, because let's face it - you didn't do anything about them. How about making a bit of change in this matter this year... I introduce you the "Non-CBA of the month" contest.


General idea is to beat CBA. Contenders will do their electronics related projects and document them on the Electriki. Yes, this fits the "What do you build?" rule perfectly. Then the !CBA chart should be filled. Basing on this chart, every month we will reveil who wins (active users) and who loses (non active ones). Then the non-active ones ship prizes to active ones. What's the prize? Noone knows exactly. One BC547B? Ok. One 150Ohm 0805 5% resistor? Ok. Brand new 100GHz laptop with 20GB RAM and 100" LED display? Ok. Loser's choice what he's going to give away as a prize(s) - as long as it's strictly related to electronics.


  1. CBA is evil.
  2. It's all about fun.
  3. By the end of each month we sumarize activities of all competitors.
  4. Results will be presented in the activity chart (below).
  5. Each month the most active competitors win.
  6. Each month the least active slacke^Wcompetitors lose.
  7. Winners win prizes shipped to them by losers.
  8. Prize will be... Surprize.
  9. One can join the competition at any given moment.
  10. Only electronics designing/fixing related posts count as an activities.
  11. Several posts per month are allowed.
  12. One cannot apply projects for a upcoming month's account.
  13. Major updates can also be applied as monthly activities.
