01.02.07: Contest is CLOSED. Thanks for playing!
By now you probably noticed our “Clicks for Charity” banner. It’s a new part of Siliconera where we are going to be using the site to help make the world a better place. Right now all of the proceeds are going to the Mercy Corps. They provide disaster relief and aid for developing nations around the world. If you like what we do here at Siliconera please help out by visiting the “Clicks for Charity” sponsor. Each click goes towards a good cause.
Now for all of our readers we have something special. To celebrate our server migration and “Clicks for Charity” we’re giving away two Nintendo Wiis! One goes to you and the other goes to one of your buddies.
Here is how the contest works:
Each Sunday we’re going to select up to ten comments as comments of the week. We’re looking for intelligent, hilarious and thought provoking comments for the section. Post comments anywhere on Siliconera for a chance to be one of the comments of the week. The last time we’re going to select comments of the week for the contest is on December 31, 2006. Then on January 1st we’re going to randomly pick out one of the comments of the week as the grand prize winner. The winner will be notified by e-mail and they can choose one of their other friends who also posts on Siliconera to receive the other Nintendo Wii. Make sure you use registered e-mail addresses when you post comments since you and your friend will be notified by email.
Protip: Get your friends to post comments and increase your chance of winning a Wii!
See the official rules past the break
Can I win a Wii if I’m not in the USA?
Yeah! We’ll ship the Wiis anywhere in the world, even Antarctica. Be aware that the Nintendo Wiis are designed for North America. If you live in Europe you probably need to get a voltage converter and have a NTSC TV ready.
How long is the contest going on for?
Right now (Nov. 27, 2006) until December 31st 2006.
When will I get the Wiis?
That depends on where you live. Prize delivery can take up to three weeks.
So how does the whole buddy thing work?
If you win we’re going to send you an e-mail. Then you send us the e-mail of your friend you want to get the Wii. We will verify your friend’s e-mail on Siliconera and send them an e-mail to them that they also won a Wii. If your friend’s e-mail address is not found on the Siliconera comment database we will e-mail you asking to select another one of your friends who is properly registered on Siliconera.
Do I get the monster or Mario?
No those are ours. If you want to trade your Wii for the monster we’ll talk.
How do I register?
It’s easy just fill in your name and e-mail address in the comment box.
Can comments be anywhere on the site?
Yes! Place comments at the end of every thread and we’ll select
what we think are the comments of the week every week.
Can I post more than one comment?
Yes! Post as many comments as you want on the site.
Should I post comments here?
No. Because people haven’t been reading the instruction comments posted in this section DO NOT COUNT. Please post comments on other posts on Siliconera.
Lastly, Siliconera reserves the right to make all final decisions about the contest.
