I TheMailman78 esquire promised Kreij that in the case of his passing I would continue some of his generosity in a random giveaway. I also promised him I wouldn't get banned in doing so.....I'm gonna try on both accounts as a man is only as good as his word. Problem is I tend to act like a jerk off and drunk post far to much. If you love me or hate me, this giveaway is going to be designed for you to take out all of your aggression on me OR say something nice about an epic man.....READ ON!

Some of you may know Kreij as the cool moderator on TPU and the occasional writer on NextPowerUp. What many people didn't know about him was he had a reason for doing the random giveaways. Well it was simple, he had some disposable income and years ago his loving wife and him lost a son in a tragic accident. Kreij and his son were gamers and the giveaways he did on TPU were to be for his son. However since Kreij was unable to give him anything more in life he would shower strangers with the gifts he intended for his only son. Sad yes. Kreij was a strong man in life so in his honor its time to end this cupcake party and put on our big boy pants. Lets get to the rules and prizes. Kreij wouldn't want a bunch of sobbing nerds talking about him.

Ok the rules are going to be broke off into sections. All TPU rules must be followed. Break a forum rule and face the wrath of a thousand pre-pubescent homophobic squirrels or as the guidelines state "Forum Moderators". If you get busted for being an ass don't blame me that the better half of you ran down your mamas leg. "Moderators" are also welcome to join in the giveaway as I think Kreij would have liked that.
The prizes have been dedicated by me (only one) and the rest a mysterious fellow the ladies call "Backdoor Man" for some reason. You must have a steam account and rules are subject to change as I may sober up.

1. Say something nice about Kreij. Something nice he did for you here on the forums. You have to be a member for at least a year for this prize. The winner of this will be chosen from some random generator site that will be sure to infect my rig with a virus:

Prizes:
Tomb Raider GOTY
Titan Quest Gold
Skyrim Legendary Edition
Borderlands 2 GOTY


2. Write a haiku about Kreij or how much Cancer sucks. There will be three winners, one game per person chosen by the mysterious "Backdoor Man" as I don't even know WTF a haiku is. I'm thinking its something like "Uncle Kreij was a good ole man, he jumped through the window with his...SOMETHING in his hand."

Prizes:
Spec Ops: The Line
Deus Ex: Human Revolution Director's Cut
Amnesia: The Dark Descent


3. Join the TPU Crunching or Folding team for at least one week. Winner will be picked by a random generator site and if you lie Ill find out and the karma that will ensue will be unprecedented.

Prizes:
Psychonauts
Battleblock Theater
3DMark (2013)


4. Insult me. TheMailman78. Stay within forum rules but have at it. Make fun of my gaming skills, drinking, nationality...whatever. Just stay away from family. They already have to deal with me everyday. Why make fun of them? Ill pick the winner of the insult that makes me laugh the loudest. Be warned its TOUGH to insult me with something I haven't heard before. Power hungry wannabe rent-a-cops aka "Forum Moderators" are especially welcome to enter on this one.

Prizes:
The OddBoxx
Goat Simulator


All entries must specify what prize section they are going for and only one entry per section. This is not, I repeat NOT an official TPU giveaway. This is just a few members that want to keep their word and give back to a community that gave a dying man something to do that he enjoyed. No thanks are needed nor wanted.
Drawings will be held on the 18th.

Enjoy and have fun sissies.

FYI here is the folding info....

FYI- here's our forum sections for crunching:

*there's a Team thread in each section where you can post and ask questions- there's usually a member online willing to lend a hand
@TheMailMan78 - it may be useful if you could add these to the OP :)

I'm out for the prizes because I intend to break the rules of your contest right now....

4. Insult me. How am I doing it? I'm giving you the first comment that Kreij gave me on this forum:

You're a good egg, @TheMailMan78 . :toast:
Thank you.

There it's done, a complement rather than an insult, I meant it and ain't taking it back... I accept whatever wrath you wish to unleash upon me :p

Seriously though, I usually don't game much and I don't enter these that often so I'm posting to thank you for sharing.

Even if you have the games I urge people to enter. You can win the games and re-gift them to other people who don't. I probably should have mentioned that in the OP. So just have fun and enter.

I'm not entering, as I've entered a few lately and don't want to be greedy, but I did want to say thank you. This is a giveaway Kreij would have loved.
Thank you @TheMailMan78 for the giveaway, thank you "backdoor man," and thank you to everybody posting in this thread(whether you're entering or not). Just another example of Kreij bringing out the best in the forum, even after his passing.

Well I guess I will jump in.

First of all, I laughed my ass off a little bit ago reading the original post! :laugh: Mailman, you never cease to amaze me with your witty comments and shit giving in these forums. This forum would be at a loss if you left, that is for sure!!!

Now, on to the contest entering:

1. Say something nice about Kreij

I spent many times talking to Dean about many different things. One that I remember most was the loss of his son! He dearly dearly missed him.........Not any more, as Dean is with him now.
Oh man, this just saddens me so much its beyond words. Dean was such an awesome person. Hell, I was suppose to try and make it out to see him this year some time. Offered me a place to stay and we were going to go to dinner and hang out.
I used to just laugh my ass off when he did give away's! Some of them were so funny at times, and some of the members responses were just hilarious.
I will and do miss Dean very dearly! There will never be another member quite like my friend Dean!:oops:

Awesome so far! Remember you can enter multiple times. Just once per prize section. Basically for those crappy at math you can enter 4 times if you have been here a year and 3 times if you are a noob.

1. Uncle K was a good man, the kind we grow up here in the Mid-West. He had the sense to laugh at himself despite the tragedy. He offered advice in a uniquely Uncle K way, often with a sly sense of humor. Or, a blatantly open, back handed ninja-slap. He will be missed, by all. The common consciousness, lost a good one!!

2. My Mom died in aught.
Cancer hurt my family,
and a lot of us.

3. I'm a Cruncher, my Badge don't lie!

4. You are a piss-drunk mess, a biased fool and often, and a gregarious and perpetual stain on humanity! However, as can be clearly seen, often the most unlearned and vulgar can be the most loyal. Uncle K's superior intellect made good use of you. If I can be anything close to proud of you, this giveaway is it.

Not an entry or anything, just paying respects to a great guy. He was a neighbor (Wisconsinite to my Minnesotan). He had joked a few times about coming down, having some beers and relaxing when he found out I was just next door (and I'm sure he wouldn't have had a problem sticking to those words). Great guy, will be sorely missed, even in a community of people who mostly never met him (and that says a lot).

I didn't know Kreij, so I cannot say anything he did for me. I will however in my donations to pediatric cancer will do so in his name.

Here is my haiku:

Darkness from within
sucking souls without regard
be cured and extinct

To throw in on the insult: The IRS would lose less letters than the post office :p (Don't really know you all that much or I'd throw something in about being a soul sucking troglodyte or something of the sorts!)

You insulted me more by double posting. Honestly I thought TPU would be better with the insults being a bunch of pent up sexually deprived nerds.

Please. You don't even have the sense god gave chestnuts, and they don't even have the sense to be in the right place!


*sigh* What is the world coming to... have to thank the mail man for posting... a giveaway.... in the spirit of Special K... Ragnarok is nigh.....


Thanks. TMM.. No insult here either... You can tell the quality of a man by the company he keeps, or something like that... . I don't think you can have any higher compliment than to look at the fact that Special K associated with you. He didn't save the world (that we know of ;) ), and most of us only know him by the small circle of our lives here that he intercepted. But the simple fact is, he was a good man. I try not to judge a persons' belief system, or lack thereof, but simply ask "Did you try to make someone's life better today? Did you look back at today, and see where you yourself might improve?" K did those things. Often. That makes him a good man in my eyes. Thanks again, to you, and to K.
