Weekly Contest Rules

  • Weekly Prize: Announced each week via the CurbsideMe Blog and Mailing List
  • Monthly Prize: Bragging rights only! At this time we are only giving out prizes to weekly winners.
  • Only physician users of CurbsideMe are eligible to be a weekly winner. CurbsideMe staff members, researchers, non-credentialed physicians, inactive physicians, and physician users without Asked, Answered, or Rated questions are not eligible to be winners.
  • Eligible physician users may choose not to participate in the weekly contest or elect to donate winnings to charity by changing their preferences within their account settings.
  • Weekly winners will be determined based on highest point total accumulated between the weekly interval period from Sunday 12:00 AM to the following Saturday at 11:59 PM, Pacific Standard Time (PST).
  • Points are awarded based on user activities on the CurbsideMe site. Actions resulting in points include, but are not limited to, answering user questions, submitting new questions, referring new users to site, and receiving site awards. Occasionally random bonus points are assigned to each question.
  • Total points for each user will be prominently displayed and tracked on an ongoing basis.
  • In the event of a points tie, the user who most recently answered a question will win the tiebreak. If a second tiebreaker is needed, the physician user who has a longer tenure as a CurbsideMe member will win the 2nd tiebreaker.
  • The award for the weekly winner may vary from nominal recognition to monetary rewards, the precise nature and amount of which will be determined by CurbsideMe and is subject to change from week to week.
  • Nominal recognition of the winner will only occur within the portion of CurbsideMe site that requires user login. Recognition may also occur in company newsletter to other registered physician users. Identity or username of the winner will not be made known to non-physician users or the general public.
  • For awards of monetary value, the actual award item will be announced on the CurbsideMe blog and via the CurbsideMe email newsletter prior to the relevant period of points accumulation .
  • The duration over which a particular award item will remain active will be announced along with award item disclosure and be determined at the discretion of CurbsideMe.
