    9 YEARS of the World Community Grid and we are celebrating! Team TPU has joined the WCG 9th Birthday Challenge (11/16 thru 11/22) that SETI.Germany is sponsoring, and we are kicking off with a game giveaway, open to all active team members.

    This challenge is even really exciting because we have seen a lot of interest from the TPU community, and many of our forum members have joined the team to share with us! Combine that with the devotion and enthusiasm from our long term crunchers, and what we get is an awesome party! :respect: :respect: :respect:

    If you wish to join the team for challenge, or perhaps longer ;), please stop by the Challenge Thread or the Team Thread :)

    The Deal and How To Enter: We have several games to enter for, and we have 2 Grand Prizes! You may enter for up to 3 games, and then select 1 of the 2 final prizes (Splinter Cell or Assassins's Creed IV)

    In your post, please select which games you entering for: 3 of the main lot and then choose 1 of the main ones.

    Requirements: As this giveaway is only open the active team members, you must post the following in your official entry:
    "I am a member of TPU's WCG Team and will be crunching for the Team for the 9th Birthday Challenge."

    Closing Time: Closing time will be ~5pm, Tuesday the 19th :eek: (Alien :p)

    Random Drawing: Drawings will be done randomly, as outlined in the following spoiler below ;)

    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.


    Obviously we want to thank all of you for your continued hard work and amazing efforts, as well as thank those that offered up games for the giveaway! :respect: :respect: Team TPU is an awesome team, members new and old, so let's get this party rockin'!!! :rockout: :rockout: :rockout:

    Don't forget to state which games you are entering for. I just edited the OP to make that a little more explicit... I think. ;)
