Congratulations DragonMaster! You are the fourth and last winner in our New Year giveaway.
It is very unfortunate that we can't giveaway more than four prizes, having several members deserving the prize (hence making sense this is a random drawing once eligible members are selected). We are grateful for your participation and we hope to continue seeing more of you in the news comments and forums. Enter here for more details. TS' staff and moderators selected members based on their activity during the January 26 - February 10th period.
Users from period #1 who continued participating (6x chance): barfarf*, canadian, cyrax*, DragonMaster, mentaljedi, MonkeyMan, nathanskywalker*, otmakus, PanicX, PUTALE, vigilante*.
Users from period #2 (3x chance): Cartz*, Cy6erpuke, fury, Kaleid*.
Users from period #3 (2x chance): AeonXX*, Buttus*, djleyo*, Eko, gamingmage, JMag034, JMMD, Need_a_Dell*, Nic, Race*, Vaulden*.
New users added to the pool: cookiedude, crossfire851, enasni, evildust, liquid, Masque, mastronaut, sjpd220, skip, sornypanafonic
*Received a bonus chance due to good participation during this last period.
Those wondering why you weren't included, remember that users are 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. Original rules for the New Year giveaway can be found here.
We will now give it a rest for a little while, but rest assured, more contests are coming your way later on 2006! Suggestions for future giveaways are welcome, too.
