    After a lot of laughter, gnashing of teeth and threats of banning members, the moderators' votes have been tallied!!

    The winners of the Flatter or Abuse the Mods Contest are (based on total moderator votes) :

    1st Place
    OCZ Vertex 2 SSD : TotalChaos

    Runners-up
    Retail "World In Conflict" Collectors Edition : t_ski
    Settlers 6 : Rise of an Empire Game : metilic
    HP Notebook Sleeve : de.das.dude

    Congratulations to the winners!
    Will the winners please send me a PM with their name and shipping address so the prizes can be sent out as soon as possible.

    I want to personally thank the other mods who kicked in prizes to make this contest even better than I thought it would be.
    Only at TPU will you find moderators who volunteer their time to keep your sorry asses in line and are still willing to toss you a bone for being part of a great community.
    We really appreciate all the help you have given to everyone who comes to TPU for tech assistance, and also for the help keeping the forums free of crap.
    TPU ROCKS and it takes us all to make that happen. Keep up the good work. :toast:

    Thanks to all who entered this contest. It was a lot of fun and we look forward to having more contests in the near future.

    Congrats winners!

    erm... I did not win so I guess you regard that as having "failed". Yet I am not banned and honestly I never expected anyone getting banned, except maybe for folks doing stuff that would always lead to a ban on these forums.

    De.das.dude, a laptop sleeve is a textile (nylon fibre or whatever) cover for the protection of a notebook that is not in use, for example to carry it safely in a bag (without the risk of damage caused by other objects in a bag). Like this

    Is it okay if I asked why that was? I guess it was for some general disrespect for the forum rules that would have lead to an infraction anywhere on the site. In case I grab too much "freedom" here and should keep my mouth shut on the subject, just tell me and I will not touch the matter anymore.

    Can we get a post of all the winning entries in this OP? It would streamline the process avoiding a lot of searching for a lot of people.

    Thanks for doing the contest mods! :)

    So instead you want to make the mods go searching because you're to lazy?
    (Note to self : Add jasper to "The List") :laugh:

    Thanks again to everyone who entered. This one turned out to be quite fun.
    Now I have to dream up a wild new idea for my next contest. :wtf: :)

    Just out of curiosity, the 2 two that got banned, what were the infractions?

    This should be made public. Not the people just the offense.

    It would also make sense that they should win as well, they did abuse the Moderators I presume.:laugh:
