Our Huge 5th Birthday Giveaway - Over £600s Worth of Gear to Win

Written Tuesday, February 08, 2011 By Dan Webb
View author's profile

5 years ago today we started off on a path into the unknown and launched this site you see here right now. After many iterations and plenty of assistance from the community and its dedicated staff, in the space of 5 years we've gone from being a small community site to become the biggest Xbox 360 site on the internet.

Today, we celebrate that journey by giving something back to you, our loyal supporters and followers. What do you give someone who already has an Xbox though? Something more than a video game... after all, we wanted to go big.

Thanks to Microsoft's release of Kinect last year, we're now able to offer something that not necessarily everyone will have and for each of our 5 years we've been going, we're going to be giving away 1 Kinect device. So, yes, that's 5 Kinect devices we're giving away.

For this special one-off giveaway, there are no region restrictions, so anyone who is a member of this site can join and be in with a chance to win. The rules of the competition are easy and all you have to do is head on over to the forums and sign your gamertag in this here thread. Next week, we'll randomly select 5 winners from all the entrants and those lucky individuals will get their hands on a brand spanking new Kinect device, fresh with Kinect Adventures.

Look out for a ton of cool birthday stuff throughout the day, as well as our usual offering of up-to-date and engaging Xbox 360 content on all the platform's biggest games.

Happy birthday to us, thanks to Microsoft UK for donating a few devices to the cause and a big thanks to you for your years of support. Here's to the next 5 years!

Rules:

  • Winners: 5.
  • This competition has no region restrictions.
  • One entry per household.
  • Multiple entries will render all your entries void.
  • Competition will end Sunday, February 20th, 2011, at 23:59 GMT. All entries after this time will be deleted and rendered void.
  • Winner will be declared via random number generator after the competition has ended.
  • The winners will receive a Kinect device, with its bundled software.

Enter the competition here.

NOTE: Competition extended due to the weekend's server maintenance issues. Thanks for your patience.

DOUBLE NOTE: Due to our attendance at various upcoming shows, prizes may not be sorted until the middle of March. Thanks for your patience.

Sigh, I really did have the feeling that I would win something. I must say that I'm slightly disappointed by some of the winners. There is nothing wrong with being a new member or having relatively few post, but some just seem to do nothing with their accounts, but then do suddenly win. Some examples without the names:

Last activity, 02-16-2011. 23 posts.
Last activity, 03-17-2011. 45 posts.
Last activity, yesterday (so the prize is claimed). 3 posts.
Last activity, today. 19 posts.

So while I agree that if you are at least active when you are informed that you have won, then you deserve it. But some of them have posted 3 times in the last year, all for contests. That doesn't look like an active user, that looks like an account purely used to enter contests.

Again, this is not supposed to be hate towards the contest winners. It just seems that there are so many users that have contributed a lot for this site, but their chances of winning are taken away by inactive users.

@#95 - The activity only applies to the forums, so frontpage users could have an outdated time stamp on it until they head over to the forums.

@#97 - The forums =)
