 2020 GeoNet Contest Rules



Thank you for your participation and contributions to the GeoNet Community!

With all due respect Michelle, I find the rules a bit intimidating.  I guess the ESRI legal department had to get involved.  All I want to do is participate in this forum, seeking answers to my questions and hopefully providing answers and solutions to others when I can...

Hi Joe, the rules have been pretty much the same since we started this contest years ago, I just have to update any minor tweaks and the dates each year. And yes, legal had to review them since we are giving away prizes. But they shouldn't deter you from doing what you do by participating in the community, which is the true value add. These rules apply only to the contest and contest winners and the contest should be considered an added bonus to what you do in the community.

Your'e pretty much stuck with me for at least a couple more years until retirement!  I'm going to try real hard to find a beach without wifi or cell service after that!

Joe, that is good news for us, your contributions are highly valued! But I do like the sound of your retirement plan/goal!!
