If you wish to opt out of the Grand Prize, please say so, and if you wish to only enter for the Grand Prize, please say so also. Requirements: Must be an active WCG team member with points returned by the end of the giveaway. To make it interesting, you must include the following in your post: ”I’m a TPU cruncher, and I will be crunching on XX cores/XX threads during this February Challenge.” or "I’m an active TPU folder, and I will be folding during this February Challenge" (Obviously replace the XX’s with your particular numbers of cores/threads) Closing Time: Closing time will be Wednesday night, the 18th, (+/- ) Random Drawing: Drawings will be done randomly, as outlined in the following spoiler below Spoiler: Drawing Process To ensure everyone gets a fair shake and to minimize any potential conflict of interest while maintaining the highest level of transparency- I have drafted a new way to draw winners. The system uses (3) members and works as follows: The system makes sure that there is no bias or other favoritism at play when winners are drawn. Winners are drawn based on a random number instead of usernames- where a possibility exists to redraw if that person doesn’t like who won, draw a friend, draw themselves, pass on new members, or skip doing a random drawing all together. My hope is that this will alleviate any concerns about drawings and their legitimacy. If it works smoothly, I would like to see this become the new standard when conducting giveaways that have prizes donated by the community. If there are any questions about this system, drop me a PM. Thank You to all of our hard working crunchers, young and old, that put forth a great deal of effort in pursuit of the greater good, as well as another thanks to all that donated of the games! We hope to do much good not only with this Challenge but as long as we can, and in the middle of all that hard work, we find time for some gaming So let's get entering for some games!
