I took a look yesterday at the contest webpage and there were less than 2000 entries (online). This thread has had so far around 1000 views. There are good odds that one of the winners will be a RFD member. The period for sending entries has ended and Rakuten took down the contest webpage. Expiring this thread. Good luck everyone.
