    Plus 1 ....... What is Plus 1? Plus 1 is a way that internet users can share webpages that we visit and like. It's kind of like a Facebook Like button. This contest is a very simple one where one lucky winner will win $50 in cash via PayPal! The winner will be selected in a random draw on November 30, 2011 at 7 PM EST.  Rules: 1. Create a google account. Instructions and the sign up page can be found here.  <a href="https://accounts.google.com/NewAccount" >https://accounts.google.com/NewAccount</a> 2. Log into your google account.  3. Go to our main page of the forum.     <a href="../../" >www.nodepositforum.com</a> 4. Click the Plus 1 button at the top of that page.  5. The Plus 1 button will then turn dark blue, meaning you Plus 1 the webpage.  6. Take a screenshot that shows the dark blue Plus 1 AND the url address bar. You MUST Plus 1 this url ... <a href="../../" >www.nodepositforum.com</a> 7. Post your screenshot in this contest thread. That's it! Simple, easy and worth $50! :dollarsign: :dollarsign: If you need any help at all, please ask the staff for assistance. We want you all to Plus 1 , enter and win! :thumb:  Here are instructions on how to take a screen shot and how to post them on the forum.If all else fails and you can't get a screen shot, take a picture with your camera or camera phone, download it to your PC and then post it on the forum. Here are instructions on HOW TO CREATE A SCREENSHOT .1.

    Sort of PSP. We need the url just a little bit clearer and see where the Plus 1 button is at? If you had hit the Plus 1 . it would have turned dark blue. We want to see dark blue so we know you Plus 1'd If you post another with the dark blue, I will thank you in advance for posting a before and after shot so others will know what we are looking for! :thumb:

    2 problems ...1. A +1 on one page of the website doesn't cross to all pages of the website2. About half the time, I don't end up on www.nodepositforum.com, but www.casinocashgiveaway.activeboard.com - does that count? If you +1 that site vs NDF, it doesn't show up on the NDF +1 status

    1. Correct. Each page has it's own Plus 1 button. 2. I must ask the bossman about that. I think that they are 2 different urls even though it takes you to the same page. and we are going for the www.nodepositforum.com to be Plus 1'd . I think it may be a favorites or cookie issue that your browser brings up the casinocashgiveaway site and not the nodepositforum site. Is there a way you can type in www.nodepositforum.com and get that to come up?  After looking at all the entries so far, none of the screenshots are of the webpage www.nodepositforum.com. That is the exact url we want to be Plus 1'd   krystalkitty, I can see what page was Plus 1'd in your screenshot even though it is not of the page itself but it shows the contest as being Plus 1'd and not the main page of the forum.  lol I am not yelling, I just wanted to make sure you all read this part in read, whoops, red. lol

    I had to change the resolution of my monitor before taking the screenshot to 1024X768 so that you could actually see anything without being too blurry, but here you go (I hope)[​IMG]

    It makes it fit by shrinking it, but that makes it fuzzy

    I deleted it just because it had more in the url than we want and I didn't want the other members more confused than they already are.I was able to read the main url but could not make out the rest. But that's ok, If I see that fuzzy rest of the url in anyone's post, I will know they did not +1 the webpage we want.

    That's weird, queenmap. I can hit the dark blue +1 and it will turn to white and then i can hit it again to make it dark blue again. Did you try hitting the dark blue? Or were you looking a for a redo button?

    No the +1 button isn't even there for me anymore. Maybe I need to log out and re-login again? IDK..oh well!

    Want to put a little wager that you are using IE as your browser, queenmap? Can you let us know if you are using IE? If you have Chrome or Firefox installed, can you try those browsers?

    krystalkitty, type in your address bar this and only this .... www.nodepositforum.com.If the url changes and adds more to it, backspace it out.Then plus 1 and take a screenshot. The url in your screenshot is not what we want. You can do it! I know you can. :nod:

     Yes, you are correct Mben! IE, but don't have any other browser and don't want one. I will figure this out yet. LOL

    Belgamo knows what is going on with IE and hopefully will have a fix. It might be a fix that google needs to do because there is talk on the internet that this is happening.

    RE: "Plus 1" And Win $50! ~ Free To Enter Contest ~ Closes 11-30-11

    And the fix is to update your IE browser to IE9.<a href="http://www.google.com/support/forum/p/Webmasters/thread?tid=4c0aae14c7ed00ed&hl=en" >http://www.google.com/support/forum/p/Webmasters/thread?tid=4c0aae14c7ed00ed&hl=en</a>I went to update mine from IE8 to IE 9 (wondering why I hadn't already) and found that IE9 is not supported on Win XP. Yes, I still use XP on my destop. I love it and don't want to upgrade my whole OS just to upgrade IE. I love Chrome and will never go back to being an IE user.  So to enter the contest, one must have the Plus 1 button. It is all on you whether or not you want to update. [​IMG]

    I still use XP as well, so IE9 isn't an option for me either, but I have 5 different browsers to choose from :thumb:Chrome is a really easy download and simple to use - it's always nice to have an alternative.Here is the download link:http://www.google.com/chrome/
