HOW TO ENTER THE CONTEST

1. Read the official contest rules and click Accept.
2. Register a username and create a password.
3. Verify your email so we know that you’re not an evil overlord or mutated animal.
4. Post an interesting Want or Find to enter the contest.

What exactly is FyndIt you ask? We are a community of collectors that help each other find great stuff like comics, memorabilia, toys – you name it! FyndIt members known as Wanters post a WANT – a hard-to-find collectible they’re looking for and offer a bounty reward to whoever can help them locate their item. Finders go out and search for the item online or in a store and post their found item as a FIND. If the Wanter accepts the Find as a match, then the Finder earns some money for their efforts and the location of the item is revealed to the Wanter. The Finder is stoked because they just made money off of helping someone find collectibles, and the Wanter is excited because they were finally able to track down that item they’ve had trouble searching for. It’s a win-win situation!

Now that you have a better understanding of what a Want and a Find are, here’s some information on how your contest entry will be judged should you choose to accept the mission. There will be a total of 100 points possible for each Want or Find. Judges will consider the following criteria for the scores:

COMPLETE (15 Points): How complete is the Want or Find? Make sure to include a clear photo, helpful description,choose a category for your item, list the price and set the bounty reward if it is a Want.

MEANINGFUL TITLE (15 Points): Does your post include a meaningful title? For example, “Comic” is not an especially helpful title. “Eastman and Laird’s Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles #1 CGC Near Mint” is a very helpful title. The more meaningful your title is, the higher your entry will score.

AWESOME DESCRIPTION (55 Points): Describe what the item is and what era it comes from. Make sure to include the condition of the item. If you’re posting a Want, it is good to give a back story on the item you are looking for and an explanation of why you want it. If you are posting a Find, you’ll need to describe the item in detail and convince the Wanter that your Find is the best match. The more helpful and interesting your description is, the higher your entry score will be.

UNIQUE OR DIFFICULT TO FIND (15 Points): Is your Want or Find something which could be considered hard for someone to locate? A greater difficulty in locating the Want or Find will result in a higher score.

WHEN TO ENTER

FyndIt’s Mean, Green Contest will run from July 20, 2014 at midnight Pacific Daylight Time (PDT) to August 16th, 2014 at 11:59 pm PDT.
