In the mean time, here’s a quick breakdown of the event:

Quests completions (practice included): 219
New users (signed up): 4
New users (signed up AND contributed): 3
Quality of contributions was used to determine the # of tickets assigned to contributors, and the winner of the event was determined by lottery (more on this later).
Top three contributors based on quantity and quality of contributions: aprilwent, yanggan, skye.
Everyone who participated will receive a Mark2Cure marker. We’re so amazed by the volume of contributions that we’re upgrading the top prize from t-shirt to mug. We’re also sending prizes to the top 3 participants. Mug to the top contributor based on quality and quantity (Aprilwent), and T-shirts to yanggan and skye.
Mark2Curathon live chat random prize winner: Laraine (T-shirt)
We’ll contact all the participants shortly to distribute the prizes. If you didn’t win one of the prizes you wanted this time, keep marking! We’re planning on giving prizes away on a regular basis.
