    W1zzard ...much respect! I was wondering how long it was going to take you...lol!
    Every thing on the page looks great is IT SET PURPOSELY TO NOT SHOW UNTIL A like has been given? Sorry damn caps lock.

    Worked for me.

    Should we use our steam associated e-mail to signup with or does it matter?

    Somehow the formatting/font seemed a little off compared to facebook too. No big deal but just to mention.

    DRDNA: I think that's the whole point lol. Fine by me.

    that's correct

    the page is not made by facebook. it's pulled from our servers and integrated into the fb outside page.

    i suck at design, so that's why it looks like it looks :)

    i assume when doing contests with companies they will help with graphics

    Yes I agree also with the straight to the point approach of this set up is just wonderful and refreshing!

    I did and it works. Thanks for giving the option not to use it/have to use an "app" to enter. :toast:

    I was going to try it and it looked like I had to install an "app" so I went back to the page and entered it the old fashioned way.

    FB Page looks good!

    you have authorize the contest app to get your basic details. otherwise facebook doesn't send them.

    any ideas if/how this should be clarified on the page ?

    the verbiage you used there seemed pretty straight forward about it.

    First time, I clicked like, filled out the info, check the agree box and clicked "join the contest". Then I clicked on the TPU page button on the top.

    Second time, after just reading your reply, I did the autofill and accepted the app, it filled in the info and I accepted again, then it said thanks for joining the contest.

    I'm confused. Perhaps the "join the contest" should install the app (after "warning" you)

    i think most people prefer to have the choice of not having to authorize an app to signup for a contest

    Absolutely, I haven't ever installed a facebook app, except for now. What wasn't clear to me is if I needed to install the app to join the contest... so apparently after installing the app, I entered a second time.

    we got methods to avoid duplicate signups :)

    so far we will just show "thank you" instead of "you already signed up", so it's harder for people to figure out how to beat the system
