Default OCZ, In-Win & Thermalright Joint Contest at NikKTech

With less than 7 days left before we give away an RevoDrive Hybrid 1TB PCIEx SSD by OCZ, an Glacier 900W 80 Plus Gold Power Supply by In-Win and a Silver Arrow SB-E CPU Cooler by Thermalright the only real question is whether or not you have already joined our Global contest.

*le sigh*

Why does every contest revolve around Facebook and other stuff like that? Whatever happened to entering your name, email address and checking a box to say you're over 13?

Jump! Jump through our hoops!

Just read someone who was saying they want to unfriend someone of Facebook, but she keeps posting slutty pics. That's the way I feel about Hardware FBs with contests.

For the record, I don't really like 99% of your updates!

I stopped entering contests because of the silly hoops that some of them make you jump through. Enough was enough.

I am fine with requiring Facebook, to be honest. For some sites, it's the best possible method of getting your updates out there, and because 99% of people use it, it just makes things easier. On the other side of the coin, if you require Facebook, it -greatly- decreases the number of con-artists trying to enter a billion times, because the site owner can check each account and see what's legit or not. That to me is the most attractive feature.
