Mac-Forums.com Software Giveaway!

Recently Mac-Forums introduced the User Reputation System and in honor of its release and to help spur usage and familiarity we decided to have a software giveaway in April. So get your mouse buttons ready, here are the details:

April 3, 2005 - April 30, 2005

How does it work?
Everytime you use the reputation system you're automatically entered into the drawing that will be held in early May to win one of the great software products that we're giving away.

Here are rules of the contest:

You must comment along with your vote. Votes without comments will not be entered
You must be a member in good standing when the drawing is held (e.g. not be banned)
You must have an active member with at least 10 posts in the forums.

I like the idea... I'm glad I've been commenting. :-)

04-02-2005, 06:22 PM
I like it, I've commented too. though I have most of that software, except the first 2, expressionengine, ibiz and ibank, or synergy classic. though if I don't have them, I most likely have no use for them. I don't use super duper, I currently have been using deja vu, its very good and has the features I'm looking for. I guess we'll see who wins, I doubt I will.

04-02-2005, 06:24 PM
Well the more you use the Reputation system, the better your chances of winning :)

04-02-2005, 07:14 PM
I haven't been commenting as much as I should... now I've got incentive.

That's the idea ;)

Will you let us know, when you've selected a winner (like saying in the post that the april contest is ending), 'cause I have this site send stuff to my .mac email and I only check it weekly (and I'd hate to miss out on free stuff, 'cause I was slow responding).

04-03-2005, 01:17 PM
The contest ends on 4/30. The winners will be selected and notified on 5/1.

04-03-2005, 01:18 PM
That's exactly what I wanted, thank you.
