That's a rather stupid policy. I'd understand disqualifying all the additional entries, but not all of them without user even knowing (and continue to think you can actually win something while you in fact aren't even on the list because of the disqualification). I'm not sure if i've entered this at all or i've already done it twice thinking of being sure but ending up completely disqualified. Sorry, but this system is really poorly designed. And i'd understand if i was the only one forgetting what i've done 1 year ago for this giveaway, but it seems there are many that just aren't sure but would like to have a chance to maybe someday actually win something.
The policy has always been there for you to read in the contest details. Call it what you want, it's been there (and announced in each news post), is there, and will always be there. It's not the organizers' fault that you weren't careful.

And just to clarify, your PowerColor giveaway entry does not count in any way to the MSI giveaway. Within each giveaway, you have to submit just once. Anyway, no more discussion of the rules here.

Ok that actually cleared up a misconception I had as I entered the PowerColor and the MSI giveaway But I'm still in because they are two separate contests...Thanks BTA for clearing that up

Ok, that clears things up. So you DO have to submit new entry on each new giveaway (makes sense though), you just can't submit it twice for the same giveaway. From what i thought before is that you only entered details into GPU-Z once and it would be valid for each giveaway. I found that odd anyway... No problem then, when new giveaway is open, you just have to update GPU-Z and fill in the form. Thanks for clearing this up.
