    In my opinion, I think it's fine that people just sign up here for this. The more people that come to TPU the better and if this is the catalyst to do it, so be it.
     
    Urlyin, SkyKast and Paulieg say thanks.

    I agree. Something brings all of us here. Why not this? Chances are new members will gain and contribute more than whats going on with this contest.

    I agree and since I see how many have entered the previous ones that are limited to TPU members since such and such date... unless it's a straight giveaway post your name thing we don't get very many posts...

    I can't enter... I'm not crying but I'm excited to see what gets posted and I would be lying if I said I didn't hope to see one of our very own win but you know what? the winner may end up not being a member since last year or whenever however the chances are he will be along with possibly many more... so a larger turn out should bring us more contests and give aways... hint hint

    so the submissions from this thread are the only ones being judged? or are other forums participating in the same contest?

    Heh, tro_avionic's entries (1,2) are pasted on a photo of a HD4870, and not a HD4890 one would expect to see.
    Now, if the competition just was about reskinning a Geforce...
    :D

    You are right. Picture provided in the official thread is HD4870, not HD4890 :twitch: Anyway, that doesn't make a big difference because cooler has the same shape and length on both cards, only PCB is different (and elements soldered to it).

    So let me get this right, we are designing for ourselves, in other words,

    If we could, what we would like the deisgn to be? Not what we think would make a cool design to sell?

    And can we use pics owned by TPU/AMD/HIS or do they have to be our own?

    Oh and thanks for making the contest open to staff and moderators! :D

    I seriously think that theres no ned to discuss the rules of the contest... Who ever posted the contest had their reasons for doing it, and its their call who gets to enter the contest or not..
    HIS had their reasons, TPU had their reasons and we have out reasons to participate or not...

    Nevertheless it seems oddly funny that the first three posters have just joinedTPU :D...

    Hi, my first post, I been a long time reader check site each day, check forums sometimes and finally decided to sign up due to this competition. I wanted to ask as I only have one post but if i come up with a excellent design would I have a less chance of winning then someone who made lots of posts? Please answer this as I really want to make a nice design but if there no chance of me winning them might aswell not do it.

    Many thank.

    you will have the same chance. postcount nor anything else don't matter. you have the best design, you win.
    you only need to be a member here at the forums. joining just to participate in the contest is fine as well.

    What about who made more than one account on TPU ? He can post 6 design and can be the same author... And he can have alot of chance to win.

    Hello many thanks, Im sure the IP address will be checked so fake accounts cannot be made and if two accounts on same IP are given then a ban should be done. My suggestion. Many thanks I will post my designs this weekend.:)

    you do that, we catch you and delete all your designs. maybe we will tell you you won and then say "oops, sorry". you should spend time on refining 3 designs to make sure one of them wins instead of making 6 average designs

    I have a question:

    Do I have to add All-The-Logo (TPU-HIS-ATI) in my design??

    // I made the Megatron
