For the person who gets no answers right - a container load of IIS beanies delivered to your front lawn?



This is great Mike - I think I just qualify to enter!

It's no wonder this is the biggest Amateur site in the Southern hem (hopefully soon the world). With awesome people involved and kind sponsors too.
well done Mike, IIS crew and too all the members who helped keep this site going from the start (wish i was one of them).

Great stuff!!!

IIS just keeps going from strength to strength, and for many good reasons.

Congratulations, Mike, ahead of the official 3rd anniversary of this great website.

I have no doubts it will still be here long after others have come and gone.

It'll be interesting to see it in another 3 years.

Hi all

Time to bump this thread again, because the 3rd birthday competition is now only 10 days away. You will notice the changes today the left bar, which will have a countdown to the competition and also proudly displays the sponsors of the competition. Without their support, there wouldn't be a competition and there wouldn't be prizes to give away! So thanks once again to the sponsors for donating prizes to the competition.

Also coming as somewhat of a surprise, the 3rd birthday competition also happens to timed with our 3000 member milestone. Thanks to the incredbile level of activitiy sustained throughout the Total Lunar Eclipse last week, we had a remarkable number of new members registering in the space of a few days.

We passed 3000 registered members (does not include un-activated accounts), which is another fantastic achievement for the IceInSpace community.

So, the competition is to celebrate both milestones - turning 3, and reaching 3000 members.

Remember, only active members of IceInSpace who have been a member for at least 1 month, and have made at least 5 posts, are eligible to take part in the competition.

Good luck to everyone!

Congratulations IceInSpace on celebrating two milestones, turning 3, and reaching 3000 members, One interesting point though, the rules of your comp bans your 3000th member from participating in it. I understand why the rules, just bad timing for #3000.

Great site, found you while looking for information on eyepieces and I'm still exploring.

Hi mib, to IceInSpace.

Congratulations on being there when the total # of members ticked over to 3000!

It's a shame you can't participate in this competition but I hope you'll be around for the 4th birthday comp.

No, you don't have to be in Australia to participate. However some of the prizes are available only to Australian residents. Check the rules which detail those exceptions.
