meh it should be based on rank 4 stars + or custom title required I mean if you aren't actively helping or posting ... then why should you get free stuff
Isn't that a fairly large requirement? I don't know how stars work though. Thanks to post ratio?

I believe so yes but think about it most of the active members that actually bother to help people have at least 4 stars

Out of respect, and in accordance with the Anti Thread hijacking agreement of 1976, where page 3376 ,line 4432-Bd clearly states "after a brief discussion on a topic Different from that of the intened threads purpose, all parties should make it they're Personal duty to steer the conversation back in the original Direction of the thread" ;) in that spirit.....
Damn dude, that was some heavy duty BS'ing there! LMAO. I have to applaud that!

@Laughing_Beast, you give yourself too little credit. You're good in my book!

@ninjacore, I'm sorry you mistook a few of our comments as complaining about the standards. We've had a number of short comments on game giveaways we do as well, always trying to figure the perfect mix. It's no biggie, it was just conmentary. And yeah, @RCoon is practically the poster-child for what a TPU member should strive to be.

@64K, Rock On!! You've got a helluva badass giveaway here. So many entries! :)

The stars come from points. Go to your profile page and to the left click on Trophy Points in blue. That will tell you how you got your points. Then you can click on View All Available Trophies to see how to get the points you don't have. It's a way to acknowledge member participation and the last star comes from length of membership (3 years). I don't know what the points to stars conversion amounts are though.

Here is the list of entrants so far in alphabetical order. This will give everyone that entered a chance to check and make sure that I didn't miss their entry. Let me know if I did and I will add you to the drawing list. Also I may have added someone that didn't intend to enter. If I did let me know. There is still plenty of time to enter if you want to. After the drawing on Monday I will post the winner.

I'm sorry everyone. I just realized this pic I posted said "never" instead of "ever" :shadedshu: it was late when I posted and my attempt at a little cuteness looked more like trollness :oops:

Anyway, awesome giveaway! :toast:
