Why do ALL of these giveaways require Us to be on Phase-Book?
Me NO like it, social Sites are really annoying to me for Some reason, but I must admit, for these Prizes it would be Worth it to join.

Also wont touch this crap. These corps have no business tracking me. Still, one cant complain too much - nobodies MAKING anyone enter - I just find forced artificial likes to be in very poor taste and form.

Just goes to prove to anyone who ever did pay any attention to these stats what a total load of bull-crap they probably really are.

I've ALWAYS loved gigabyte boards for their reliability - and have used them on almost all of my customers with incredibly low failure rate (less than 3 ever under stock conditions) and fantastic return policy, but any company that will blatantly and fraudulently falsify their "likes" by offering prizes for them is telling the world that they are in the active practice of fudging their numbers, willfully and intentionally.

Still, I also remember a fast rising band called "Milli Vanilli" where shooting for the stars when their entire career was shot down in a "lip-synching" scandal - and now days if you don't lip-synch at a concert you get booed off stage because your performance doesn't sound like the one in their iProduct.

Perhaps the days people just don't care anymore, and as long as someone else is prepared to fudge up the numbers they will just go along with it. That's how TV shows are created and destroyed anyway.

See : UNIVERSAL Formula For TV Series Development (UFFTSD)

Is it good for product placement?

a.) YES, it may be vapid and utterly pointless, but its about rich, spend ready tweens in a hip city full of brands - RENEWED

b.) NO, its in space, you need to think about the story, there's no pepsi, iProducts, or new cars forever "PULLING UP" and jamming their logo into the middle of the screen - CANCELLED


End.

In the United States, contest drawings must have alternative means of entry besides the main one. This is usually done as a mail-in option and it's why you see contests with fine print that say 'to enter mail your name and address on a post card to ' It may be state laws that govern this but I rarely see a contest that doesn't have the alternative means of entry.

Do these contests not require it because they aren't based on the US?

Like before the giveaway
Unline AFTER the giveaway

This simple can't be!

Create 10 fake accounts
Tell 10 of your friends
Raise the chances to get the mobo

One big hint: How they are going to tell each other that you liked all 3???
Maybe it is one guy who has all 3 pages?

They pick a winner, then confirm if that person really liked the three pages, if not then, pick another

and plus its their giveaway, all of the three pages, so they can access all the "likers"

Stop the facebook hate already, You don't wanna use it? fine, You use it? fine, Social Networking ain't that bad. For all intents and purposes what we are doing here is very similar to social networking.

I seem to remember a TPU giveaway that recently utilized facebook. Perhaps we shouldn't crap where we sleep....



Additionally, who gives a crap. You don't fill out the slips in a mall for "a chance to win free replacement windows." Why is a facebook contest any different? If you don't care, don't enter. Raging against facebook, for what is ostensibly a human failing, is foolish. The second that people realize that they don't actually have 1000 friends is the second they grow up.


I have no love for facebook (see: facebook doesn't even get a capital letter). Most contests are a sham. What I can't get is why there is so much hate for one facebook contest.

fine for vendors, but i hope that tpu only does contests and giveaways through this site and not through facebook. not because i hate facebook, but because i think it takes away from our tight knit community. it is always awesome seeing somebody win a giveaway whose posts i recognize. remember when themailman won the that shinobi case because he says he faps silently??

These rules are the cheapest way of advertising products, of course, the manufacturer does not cost anything crust.
It would be good to rename such forms of reward!
Advertise FREE, Throw me a bone. !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
