Why would robhofen think he's ineligible? He has 50 posts, if he can find a suitable book he should be fine.

He didn't have 50 when it started, though.

Umm no he wasn’t a member back when the last competition was on, as DB said, it’s because he didn’t have 50 posts at the start date.

You can always rely on the old guys coming back for a chance at free stuff. :D Free stuff is my favourite kind of stuff.

As for the sticking around part...If anyone wants me here I might just stay. Provided I don't have to "catch up" on all the old topics. Might mean I'll have to start playing again though...

Official winners:

#2 Swiftman
Who chose "Captain Harlock" (which is NOT currently in stock so he'll have to choose something else)

and

#17 GAMER
Who chose "PostSecret : Extraordinary Confessions from Ordinary Lives"

Which goes to show that it's better late than never to register for these things I guess :D

Swiftman & GAMER, email or PM me with your full name, address, & phone# (which I will of course use only to ship your book & will promptly delete afterwards). Also, Swiftman pick a new book, one that says "Usually ships in 24hrs" on the page. :suspicious:

For those interested, heres the php code I used to randomly pick the winners ...

Code: Select all

$numppl = 17;
	
$winner1 = rand&#40;1,$numppl&#41;;
$winner2 = $winner1;
while &#40; $winner1 == $winner2 &#41; $winner2 = rand&#40;1,$numppl&#41;;
	
echo "Winner #1 = $winner1<br><br>";
echo "Winner #2 = $winner2<br><br>";
Congrats to those who won, and better luck next time to those who didn't. As I mentioned before, I plan to run a more elaborate contest during the summer, where the prizes will be game CDs of some kind. So stay tuned for that ... hopefully that contest will also serve to get more new members posting on the boards here. L8rs all :bday:

No it goes to show it pays to have nice people like me on your MSN contact list to tell you about the comp so you can enter the day before it closes. :P

There are some thing even Samurai's can't do, Sinister. XD

Waita sec, off topic....



Thanks for the winning wishes/jealous spurts, everyone! This just means that there's two less people to compete against next contest!
