    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.... :respect: 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.

    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).

    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.

    Just a reminder that the giveaway is planned to end tomorrow evening, with drawings shortly thereafter (hopefully :p).

    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 :)

    edit:

    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 :)
