idea Erodov Old is Gold Contest 11/11/11 Special! Prizes worth ₹ 26,000/-





We promised something special on 11/11/11, so here we are! A uniqu[e] Old is Gold Gadget contest! (thanks to Vijay for the idea!) The rules are simple. The person with the oldest verifiable electronic gadget in possession matched with a awesome write-up describing 'Why you still own and love it?' will get:

1 x AMD Phenom II 1090T CPU + 1 x ASUS Crosshair IV Formula motherboard

The contest is open to everyone, Indians and people from foreign countries alike

So to win:
  • Like Erodov's Facebook Fan Page and the Contest Page:

    Erodov Facebook Page (Erodov | Facebook)

    Contest Page
  • Share this contest page on your Facebook wall: Simply copy paste the following line and post on your wall:

    I am competing in the [E] Old is Gold Contest 11/11/11 Special! CPU and Motherboard worth ₹ 26,000/- http://www.erodov.com/forums/erodov-old-gold-contest-11-11-11-special-prizes-worth-26-000-a/47101.html

    Make sure you tag Erodov in your post! (use @Erodov)
  • Post in this thread (if you have not registered on Erodov yet, you can do so now): A photo of the oldest gadget you own (it is mandatory for you to take a photo of the gadget now with your Erodov username and 11/11/11 written clearly on a piece of paper. Erodov.com must also be clearly mentioned in the photo.)
  • Post along side the photo: Why you still own and love the gadget? The writeup can be as small or as large as you want. This will be the decider/tier breaker for the contest.
  • A video submission (uploaded to YouTube or Facebook) combining the above TWO is even more welcome. Instead of writing about the gadget, speak to your audience (as they might end up deciding who eventually wins.) Of course you need to mention Erodov.com in the video

I would say posting a video would increase your chances of winning by at least a factor of 3x Also, the gadget may be in a non working condition as well (as long as you can justify in your write up/video why you still own and love it )

Winners are governed by the following fine print, of course:
  • The contest is open for to all members from 11th Nov 2011 to 11th Dec 2011. If you are not already an registered member, you must first register as a member on Erodov.com. Registration is free and can be done here.
  • You can submit multiple entries in the contest.
  • You must follow all the steps outlined above (including liking the contest page and posting about this on your Facebook Wall page.) Inviting your friends to the contest gets your extra brownie points with the judges!
  • Decisions of the contest judges are final. The final winner may be picked using a open public vote! Democracy! Hallelujah!
  • The prizes are not redeemable in cash and must be accepted as awarded.
  • The prizes will be shipped to people residing in India only. Winners from other countries will have to bear any additional shipping and tax costs.
  • The CPU and the motherboard have both been bench marked under extreme cooling for a overclocking event. However, both of them are still under warranty and are fully functional. The products will be shipped as is and no returns/refunds will be accepted.
  • Everyone (inside and outside India) is free to participate in this contest. Erodov Staff members (and their relatives) are not eligible to win in this contest.
  • Facebook is not associated with this contest in any way.

Re: Erodov Old is Gold Contest 11/11/11 Special! Prizes worth ₹ 26,000/-


Please be cool mate, no need to be angry..
nobody said anything to you, it was a general statement, so many entries have to be checked, thought about and we are all contributors only and all of us do this as a love and passion.. so you are not complaining to the staff but to fellow members like you..
there are no instances that any contest on Erodov has been left without prizes being declared etc..
I am not saying that your post count makes a difference... so please be patient.. as for asking a member to quit whining is looking bad to you, did he ask in a polite way.. why did that not irk you as you have been a member for longer than he has been?
when he threatened to leave the forum saying bye bye.. why did you not feel insulted..
coz you think that you are not a part of the staff.. and a mod etc.. that is why.. so that is why @JD666 said, that guys come on and be a part of the family and be patient..
look at things from all perspectives mate.. and be cool.. and how can you say that we have gone back on our promises...??? please illustrate.

i guess this is the impression you guys want to give to any new member that joins ; mods are rude go back on their promises

i have been a member of this forum for the past one year and even though i don't comment on many topics as i am not as well versed in the technical details, i do take the time out to read as many posts as possible during the limited free time i get.

i may have only 66 posts to my name but i try to only write when i have something valuable to share

i posted when someone discussed a medical condition as it is my area of expertise

i posted a personal note to usforces during the whole suskrukh fiasco

i have bought and sold items in the marketplace multiple times

so if the number of posts is the criteria for being accepted as a member of erodov, i guess i will never be one.......

Sigh. No wonder people tell us we Indians lack patience. :|
On a side note, complaining wont help you (whoever) or anyone else. Instead people will find you irritating.
Also, guys please dont forget that ERODOV wants to bring quality and not simply quantity. The giveaway was done to, i believe, keep the forum interesting. Even if you are a newbie (i'm not judging by the no. of posts, mind you) at least try to be more open up and interact with others instead of isolating yourself. Dont hesitate to ask anything.
Be part of [E] family.
Cheers!

PS:Going back to topic why not close this thread till @krashnburn comes back?

What I am going to do next:

- Make sure there are enough quality entries
- If not enough, extend the competition a bit so we hit the target.
- Decide winner
- Send prize
- Sheks

You are a staff member, hence a part of Erodov. You have no right insulting it in public.
