Win Mashugly's iPod
To celebrate our 20,000th member, I’m giving away my iPod. There’s no gimmick, we’re not doing it to be cool or trendy – I just have a pristine 40 gig Click Wheel iPod (along with cables and cases) that I want to give to a member of our forum . You may be saying, “Why would I want a 4G when the 5G iPods are so much better?” Well, the main reason this one is better because it’s free. The second reason is that it comes fully stocked with 40 gig of my favorite music, ranging from The Beatles to Beethoven to… well… just about everything. Since the giving away of digital music is still a legal grey area (the courts haven't figured it out yet), just be sure to delete all the music when you get the iPod. Mkay? Mkay.
Anyway, getting this iPod couldn’t be any simpler. Here’s how:
1. Post on the forum. The winner must have at least 231 posts by the contest’s end on March 1. The site staff will be making sure that your posts are substantial, helpful, and kind.
2. Post in the new forums. That means that helpful guides in the Genius Bar and threads in “Reviews” will score you more (imaginary) points.
3. Nominations. Who you think should win? Every forum member can send one nomination to firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject of “iPod Nomination”. And yes, you can nominate yourself.
Pretty easy, huh? On March 1, the site staff will compile all that data and decide who should win. The contest starts today and it’s a blank slate – someone with 500 posts right now isn’t any better off than the person who only has 3.
I hope this will be a fun contest – we’re doing it because we like to do crazy things and this is a good way to reward you for helping us make The OSx86 Project the excellent community it has become.
