Sorry Apop to be posting again in this thread, but I feel that some aren't behaving with a community spirit over this issue. As happy as I was to be able to enter without the hoopla, I have no problems with this contest being extended/suspended/canceled if the desired results aren't acceptable to the benefactors of the contest (thanks again to both LR and NZXT). Free giveaways are the icing on the cake, but if people aren't here because they want to belong to a community that is both helpful and informative, then it may just boil down to greed and we won't miss them in the forums anyway. They are the ones missing out though by not taking advantage of all the FREE TECH HELP, ADVICE, and REVIEWS that can be found here. Hell, I've saved at least a hundred dollars just by subscribing to the "Legit Deals" thread alone, and gotten deals that I didn't even know about on stuff that was on my short list to purchase anyway.
Bottom Line: If Apop needs a lawyer to hash out the legalese just so he can give away FREE STUFF on his own website, how long do you think said free giveaways will last? The point about needing minimum participation is a valid one and don't forget NZXT can easily withdraw their participation at any time if their minimum conditions aren't met, which these obviously weren't. Did some people really think that 10 entries for 10 prizes meant a guaranteed multiple hundred dollar payout for a handful of lucky schmucks that just joined for the contest and has never participated in the forums? REALLY? Do unicorns crap glitter in your world?
NZXT would never give this site another tech sample to review if they had to follow through with this. For that matter, such a decision could also influence other manufacturers to withhold samples from LR as well, and as you should know by now free advance tech samples is the lifeblood of any review site. If they had to buy what they reviewed then it would not only be prohibitively expensive, we wouldn't have the review until the tech actually hits the market and by then it is old hat anyway. What do you want? Do you expect Apop to pay for all of you newcomers' to get new stuff over a little technicality that those of us that are regular participating forum members take as a logical given without needing to close "grasping at straws" loopholes?
Sorry if I stepped on some toes here, but if the shoe fits, then it is probably causing bunions anyway.
In closing, I will offer a bold statemet--real community members will be here long after this contest ends, or even if it is discontinued. So ask yourself this...will you?

The date is March 25th, but I don't see it on our facebook wall... That is why I missed it.
