I'm in for Sniper Ghost Warrior Gold Edition
MEANWHILE it seems pretty much everyone will win the specific game they voted for by default.
+ manofthem confirmed it was a mistake. That figures...
I get one idea. It requires a mod's intervention, though.
Make a completely new thread with a proper poll and move all the posts of this thread there.
Not necessarily a mistake. My initial thinking was a long the lines of theonedub's; it makes sense that we think similarly since we often do giveaways and are accustomed to the ins and outs. While creating the poll, I gave it thought and chose a single option, mainly due to fairness. If person A enters for 1 game and person B enters for 5 games, it doesn't exactly end evenly.
After it was posted, it was suggested for multiple choice. After thinking about it, I thought that it might be a good idea for multiple entries, given the number of games available.
Mod intervention is a given, but I'm waiting on responses from the mods. Hopefully I'll hear back soon.
And theonedub is 110% correct, running a successful giveaway isn't as easy as one may think.
I'm glad he understands
Agree 100%- these giveaway's are quite a bit of work.... to you and theonedub for bunches of them that you do.
Clearing it out and trying again isn't necessary imho
I would suggest throwing a spoiler at the top of the OP addressing any corrections to the drawing or the poll.
Entering for Serious Sam 3, but only if no one else wants it.
If multiples are a go, I'd like to enter for Tom Braider, Velvet Assasin and Deus Ex.
A correction, the prize I offered is a "Humble Weekly Sale: THQ!" bundle, not a Humble THQ Bundle (the included games differ between the two).
This is what the crunching and folding community is all about. Being able to stand against disease and illnesses to have a better future for mankind! Thank you to all of those who put their PCs to work and fight the good fight!
In for alan wake!
Are the games mentioned in the poll after THQ Budle correct (DS 1&2 and Raf: G&A)?
Ah, well, yes, the list of games is correct. Disregard my post then, I just saw the logo in the first page but didn't check the game list.
in for Red Orchestra 1&2
Entered for Tomb Raider. Thanks for another awesome contest!
I chose for Avadon: the Black Fortress. I like role-playing games.

I'm in for Splice, then!
In for the Serious Sam HD Double Pack. I crunch under "xvi_tech.kyle".

Just a reminder that the giveaway is planned to end tomorrow evening, with drawings shortly thereafter (hopefully ).
I'll be in talks with Norton as to what to do with the leftover and unclaimed games, so maybe there will be more chances
After the winners are posted, the remaining games will be listed and posted. Then members who didn't win can then enter for what is leftover.
Hopefully we will have a lot of happy crunchers/gamers
Glad to see tomb raider is a popular one.
Indeed so, thanks for contributing the game
