    Why prolong the inevitable, just leave now.

    @tker: The "greedy" are those that just joined because they had an incentive to, ie, the contest. You wouldn't have joined, and neither would the other dozen or so Aug 08s if it wasn't for the contest. You are right though, it is these "greedy" people that are ruining the contest.

    But that's where you're wrong, oh so very wrong. The Devils greatest trick was to convince man he wasn't a threat.

    Also, last contest there was suddenly an influx of "How To" threads (cause they gave the most points per effort or something) from Dragonskull, which included ones like "how to cure a headache" and "how to take a piss", and other things that were common ****ing knowledge. Bout a week later he's bragging about his shiny new iPod or whatever it was. Cheeze tried to do the same thing, but either got banned for "abusing" the system, or just kinda said **** it cause Dragn was so far ahead wiht all his stupid bull**** that it wasn't worth it.

    Everyone avoids the true state of things. You did too, about 15 minutes ago.

    Unless this community offers something unique that the rest of the millions of gaming communites don't have, then most likely people are going to want incentives to join. But having contests with this caliber of prizes tells me that the admin(s) care about the community. And yes, everyone that joined around Aug 08 is probably in it for the contest, but do not assume that everyone will leave after the contest.

    I don't think I single active poster here joined simply because they had a chance to win a PS2 or an XBOX or 200$ or whatever. They joined for the community, something you guys didn't.

    People assumed that the newbies would stay after the contests were over the last few we've had. Too bad people weren't there to tell us not assume then.

    Would you seriously stay if you weren't allowed to join in on this contest, but could be in next year's if you were still active? Knowing that the admins care about their regular members, you should be working to become one.

    Well then it's very unfortunate that has happened. This unfriendly feel from some of the members isn't going to make numbers any better, or the site's reputation for that matter. Again, I am completely new and do not know any of the history so in essence I am assuming things as well.

    I joined to troll the entire forums. Going on 5 years of being a bitch. I think I deserve to celebrate by winning a PS3 without any effort on my part. Anyone agree?

    I am on vacation right now so I can not answer all of your questions. First off, you need to be careful with what yoi say to other members, or I will be disqualifying you from the contest. That includes you renzo. Now please encourage each other and seriously mature up (for those who need to).

    Please. I like you Flash, but don't even put yourself on the supreme level of mine. It's impossible to match my divinity.
