Requirements/terms to qualify for a prize:

* in order for your name to be drawn- you would need to be a member of this forum also (we will draw according to forum name so please post if WCG name is different)
- Winners will be chosen randomly at the end of the qualifying period.
- Winners will need to claim their prize within 72 hrs of the time/date of the drawing
How Random Winners Will be Drawn (see 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:
Originally Posted by The System
Member 1: This member creates a list of all qualified participants usernames. This list is sent to Member 2.
Member 2: Using the list of names, Member 2 will assign each entrant a unique number. A list of the usernames with the unique numbers is sent back to Person 1. The list of just the random numbers is sent to Member 3.
Member 3: Member 3 has a list of just numbers. They use Random.Org or whatever random system to select which number wins a given prize. The list of winning numbers and the associated prize is then sent back to Member 1.
Member 1: Using the lists, Member 1 ‘decodes’ the winning numbers into the winning usernames and posts the results.
The lists are sent as Private Messages through the forum. This establishes an electronic record of everything while also preventing alterations of lists after the drawing.
When the winning usernames are posted by Member 1, Member 2 can verify that the number belongs to the correct username and Member 3 verifies that the number was actually pulled as a winner.
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.

Btw @Norton, another challenge that will be going on while I'm out of town. :laugh:

It's not too big of a deal for me but I don't know if I'll be able to "borrow" the other pc(s) that I normally do... I'll sure give it a try though ;)

I'll be throwing some games in for a giveaway. It saddens me to say that I'll be passing this time on hosting since I'm going to be pretty MIA those few days, and it'll be nice to let someone else share in the fun :)


I talked with @Norton about it, and I'm sure he'll be figuring it all out in short order. ;)


Either way, I'll be donating some Steam keys :toast:

I'm all in until the VM ends...I have to look when... But I will still Crunch my Lappy Top as usual, or, even more...;)

So far, looks like the Teams that joined are rather small, other than the UK team. Is it Kosher to include prizes for other teams, preferably the one or 5 member size? I think it would be nice, and could possibly lure some smaller teams to join us. I would love it if some independent Cruncher's would join us and become part of a team that is dedicated to the same goal.

What's the catch?

I love new member's, especially new Cruncher's!! :D

I would give some STEAM game's to the cause...I have more than I can play, and even some I can't play, on this computer... @Norton , what do 'ya think?

You know I'm in, plus I probably have a i5 CPU/MB combo and (testing it out today) I won't have a use for after this weekend (got a R4BE coming for the 3930k I bought from @james888 a couple months ago).

My current 3930k is still running under Kriej's name, and I was planning on putting the second 3930k under his name as well. Does that matter for the challenge?


edit: tested the Z68 board, it's dead like I originally thought. I actually first got the board when I originally bought my 2600k, system stopped working so I replaced the board after some trouble shooting. Never threw it away or RMA'ed it. Came across it the other day, decided to try it out with the i5 I have. It worked for a few hours, then the system just shut down. Now when I try to start the system, the fans spins up and then it shuts down and tries to restart, then shuts down and on and on. Oh well, putting the H67 board back in that system.

I hope you mean "and/or". I've had to reign back due to power concerns. I can certainly fire everything up for a challenge though. :p
