TS New Year Giveaway: Second winner announcement

By on January 17, 2006, 5:31 PM
Congratulations Asphix! You are the winner of the second GeForce 7800 GT, with two more still waiting to go in our giveaway. Enter here for more details.
The selection went as planned and consisted of TS' staff and moderators picking members based on their activity during the December 29 - January 11 period.

It's so unfortunate we can't giveaway more than four cards, having SEVERAL valuable members deserving the prize, luckily it's random drawing between those eligible so we don't have to pick a final winner, best of luck next time!

Users from period #1 who continued participating (received double chance): arcanum, asphix, barfarf, bartzy, canadian, cyrax, DragonMaster, Eleventeen, mentaljedi, MonkeyMan, nathanskywalker, nimo333, otmakus, PanicX, PUTALE, Rage_3K_Moiz, spike, vigilante

New users added to the pool: 2old, Cartz, Cy6erpuke, exscind, flavin, fury, Kaleid, luvhuffer, raystorm

Once again, we are thankful for your participation and we certainly hope you keep doing so, as there are still two more videocards in play.

Those wondering why you weren't included, remember that users are being hand-picked, meaning quality and relevance of comments matter A LOT. If this wasn't the case we could simply run a search of users posting over 20 items during the contest period, but the fact that we read everything you post makes a difference.

The winner has now been contacted through his registered email, and we expect a response during the following five days.

Alright! I hope you make good use of the card Asphix!Kind of ironic he wins the card at a time he isn't contributing to the board, lol. Don't mean that in a bad way, just think it's funny.Now get Battlefield 2 and rock on!

Well done Asphix, you've written some good posts.
Eko said:
Hello, I'm happy for asphix, I hope he gets to play a lot. Sorry I wasn't chosen for the next round. But.. I hope to equal the odds, sooner or later.Good luck to all from now, I'll continue writing, after all we are a big community, and should help each other, even if no video card was envolved. In gaming, there has to be a winner and a loser too. But also, fair play is needed.

I think that i will win...I just got back from skating and am too excited
Cartz said:
Thanks to Techspot for even considering me! I fully thought I'd be waiting until next draw, seeing as I only joined on the 9th.Whoever the marketing genius behind this contest was deserves a raise. It definately has peaked many peoples interest. I know I for one will be sticking around even after the contest, this is like a more tech oriented slashdot!Crossing my fingers for the next draw :)
SCHUMIinSA said:
Gongrats Asphix.Sucks that I was not even considered though :(I tried my best, made a few mistakes, but still tried my best and I was not even considered.Just noticed something I only joined 2 days before the second part of the competition closed. I guess that;s what it was. Hopefully I will be considered for part3 although it may be too late.
poertner_1274 said:

barfarf said:
Congrats Ashix! Now that leaves you out of the competition for me to win!! Mooooohahahaha =)
mentaljedi said:

Cy6erpuke said:
Wow, well done Asphix. Thanks for including me in the pool. I feel very flattered. You guys rock.
Kaleid said:
Congrats! And I'm now in the pool :)

exscind said:
Just saw this announcement. Congratulations Asphix, a very deserving winner indeed.I never would have found this site without someone telling me about the site and the contest. I know I am staying and will participate long after the contest :).[b]Originally posted by Cartz:[/b][quote]I know I for one will be sticking around even after the contest, this is like a more tech oriented slashdot![/quote]And without the pointless flaming/bashing.[Edited by exscind on 2006-01-17 19:46:17]

sjps220 said:
I doubt I'll be considered for the third session because I joined yesterday and just got over 20 but I've been waiting for a site like this and I just happened to find it (not because of the contest) right before this deadline! I fully intend to keep posting here. Congratulations to Asphix! Enjoy it!
