I don't understand this contest. You get entries for tracking activities, but there really is no way to say anyone actually did any of them?

Maximum activities per day is 10. I did the maximum entries today and ended up with 60 entries (like almost everyone on leaderboard), with the first day bonus entries. One person has 65 entries, no idea how,

Anyway...at least the draws are random?

You will earn 5 entries for registering, 10 for your first activity, and 1 entry for every completed activity following that.


how did you get 60 entries for a day? Today I only got 15 + 9 completed activities = 24?

You also get 5 entries for the "first time" for each activity. If you looked at the leaderboard, almost everyone had 60 from yesterday. If you are picking repeat activities, they're only worth 1 point after the first time.

Quidditch? Really? Lol

I'm not going to pretend I did some of these things, I guess I'll have to just take a hit on my entries.

You get different points for new vs repeat activities, are you tracking that?

I just picture winning something and being asked about how I liked playing sledge hockey. ;)

I know most people are checking the activities and not paying attention, but I still think its low to say you have participated in something like Wheelchair Basketball (if you are not in a wheelchair), just to win a prize.

Same, I can't do it. Once I've run out of activities I've actually done, I'll just take the hit on less entries on repeats.

sent a note when this first started re the fact that they are giving people who cheat an overwhelming chance at the prizes and typical of most sponsors they did not care. Here is her response:
Thanks for reaching out to express your concerns about the ParticipACTION 150 Play List.

Understanding that there is no technology in existence yet that can keep Canadians honest about how they participate in the Play List, we are working under the assumption that some users may participate honestly, and some may lie. It is our hope that people will not cheat the system, but we know that there are users who will try. We have designed our points system with this in mind, and will be watching behind-the-scenes for manipulations.

We have established a maximum number of entries per day based on what we feel is a realistic number of activities one person can try. We did not wish to cap this out at “one new activity per day” because we feel this might deter Canadians from participating all together.

Some Canadians will be excited and competitive about the list and may wish to knock off a few activities at once. We don’t want to deter people from doing this, and we feel 10 is a realistic number of new activities to try in one day. For example, during our launch event I tried curling, wheelchair racing, bean bag toss, a kayaking simulation, walking, running, stick pull and hockey all in the same day.

A side note – with regards to the users you saw with 60-65 points on day one, those were actually tests that we set up to ensure the site was working on launch day.

It is our hope that people like you will continue to be motivated to participate honestly to increase their physical activity levels.
After all, our primary objective is to get Canadians to sit less and move more. If more Canadians move even just a little bit more as a result of this program, we’ll consider it a success.

Best regards,

Michelle
