Everyone that belongs to an Insider site has a shot of winning a prize, whether they joined bublaa or not. There are some members that were too young to join, so it's the only fair way to do it. Not everyone can win something - there just isn't enough to go around when you do the math. $10,000 sounds like a lot, but not when you divide it between 200,000 people.

The offer of such a large sum of money for taking action quickly to join this web site I never heard of before makes me think this might end up being shady. Anyone else concerned, or am I just being too overly cautious?

I wouldn't worry about this site or joining it. It hasn't required you to send any money, it doesn't make you give any personal information. You can even go back and 'uncheck' you birthdate. You just have to leave it there for their admin to see so they are sure you are old enough to participate. You don't have to give your address, phone number or any other personal info. I have been a member there now for the better part of a week and haven't received any spam email.

Think of this - they are a new site. They are trying to get the word out about their site, so they are offering a large prize rather than advertise in varying ways. Advertising is VERY costly - way more so than $10,000 - especially depending on the type of media you choose. So, they chose word of mouth, which considering the nature of social media nowadays is HUGE! And they ARE a social media site, so that fits them perfectly. Think of how many people tweeted them, 'liked' them of facebook, etc. So, now they are out there... all at the cost of $0. So, they took a chance and decided to take that ad budget and offer it up as a prize for one lucky bubble holder in order to motivate the bubble holders to get the word out for them. There are 200,000 Insiders, so the word got out to approx. 200,000 people there alone. The guy who ran the Gleeks bubble said on his site that he had 13,000 twitter followers. There are another 13,000 people that now know about bublaa. Then a celebrity realized what the Glee guy was trying to accomplish and she/he tweeted on his behalf. Imagine how many followers a celebrity has on twitter! Now that many more people know about bublaa. And, so it goes viral.... (or at least they hope.)

What do you all think would be fair and best?

Thoughts.
Everyone should have an equal shot at the prizes. (Just NOT through that horrible button thing! ACK! It never works, you have to hang around waiting and trying it at certain times, and while the thought behind it was good it definitely needs a complete overhaul. Click the image to open in full size. (LOL!)

I wonder if different laptops in the same house have the same IP address. My kiddos have different email adresses then I do and legitimately set up their own bublaa accounts (the ones that were old enough). But, we do live in the same household. But they do have their own accounts, do their own things on their accounts, have their own conversations on them, join their own bubbles (now that the contest is over, etc. etc. I don't think they/we should be penalized for that. Even when we joined here, I got questioned several times over about whether I was one person with several accounts and had to assure the staff several times that no, my kids had their own accounts here. I could take photos of them holding the current newspaper to send... LOL!
