    Hey, you can now strike real gold here at Gold Derby by reaping the best predix. We’re now paying $1,000 to the person who wins our contest to predict Oscar nominations and we’re giving $100 gift certificates if you win our contests predicting other awards.

    Winner shall be the player with the best percentage rate of accuracy. If there are multiple players tied with the same result, then the winner will be the one who has both the best accuracy percentage and the top game point score. In the event of ties, all winners will split and share the prize jointly.

    Read the official rules here:

    Here’s link to our leaderboards to the scores of all past prediction events. Prizes don’t apply in those cases, but you may be interested to see how we keep score around here.

    Tom is clearly following US law for contests (these things can be tricky) but maybe as a community that benefits from all our international members perhaps there is a way to overcome this. Apologies to Tom if this is presumptious or otherwise out of line.

    If there is some way to include non-US residents in submission of entries, I’d be willing to say that if I enter and win, and someone outside the US does better, I’d be happy to send the prize (less my tax obligation, since this stuff is recorded as income) to the actual winner. Does that sound like a fair idea, particularly if a bunch of people agree? It would be a way to show how much us US members appreciate all the ones from elsewhere. (And nobody should feel he/she has to do this, just only if people volunteer). 

    I’m not likely to win of course, and this isn’t to say I couldn’t use the money, but I wouldn’t feel right about winning because of a valid but painful technicality.
