I'm in, but I have a question, why does it say:
Online retailers are selling this tough flash drive for $449.99 plus shipping, so this is your chance to win a $450+ kick ass prize for doing nothing more than being an active part of this community.
Good proof reading, Nate! :P

wow awesome contest, I think the best I have seen so far and I must say yes I am new to the forums and yes I joined for this contest but after checking out your guys forums its really nicely laid out and unlike other forums packed with a lot of info, so depending on my welcome here I think I might have found a new second.. or umm third home lol. ^_^

that makes about 31 ineligible people by my count(not to mention the spamming and revival disqualifications)

the odds just get better and better :)

Its quite funny seeing new users who just joined the forum make a massive amount of posts for contest in just a short amount of time thinking they are eligible :lol:

I totally agree and chances are quite good as a few users, let alone new users, probably didn't catch this in the rules so yay for us :supz:

well, i actually counted, looking in their posts(click their name -> search posts) the only thing is the spamming/revivals, that is judged by the mods and admins

Anyone with common sense should know its not right to be a "thread digger" when it involves posting for a contest; especially since its one of the rules.

I didn't notice that " 5 posts in January " part .Unfortunate for me.Now i can understand i only had 2 days to post 5 posts, 30 & 31st of January but i thought that as this contest is going somewhere into February, so that'll be the last day of posting 5 posts.I didn't know that i've already missed the chance to even being entered into the contest.Anyways.

I'm surprized myself too Werty.I had enough time to post 5 posts on time but .....Anyways, i think i'm not alone.Most of the new guyz also missed that part which automatically increases you guy's chances of winning.

Well then you need to see the rule number 3.I know the winner will be drawn on 13th February but to enter in the contest, you need to make 5 posts in January.Got it ? Even if you post 100 posts within the deadline won't matter unless you have 5 posts in the month of January.This is my first experience with any competition where the contest is still on but i've become ineligible. :(

Have you read the previous post ? You had to post 5 times within January,not February.See rule number 3 on the first page.Better luck next time.

I highly doubt he meant that. I'm sure he'll chime in, but if you think about it... my logic makes more sense than yours! ;) When he does his contests, he means throughout the contest period. Trust me, I've been here a lot longer than you.

/end discussion. This is a thread for entering a contest that ends February 12th.
