Will The Pressure Set You FREE? (in Contests)


SNK3R June 4 2006 6:15 PM EDT

Another free item naming contest is now open. This will be the last, so get ready and get prepared. This is your last chance!

This contest will not begin until 5:00 PM EDT on Monday, June 5, 2006.

Yes, that's correct. I am posting this about 24 hours in advance. Let's see how well you do with everyone else trying to submit their entry at the same time! There will be no disqualifications before the contest begins.

No entries will be considered eligible until at exactly 5:00 PM EDT. Good luck, everyone!

Read ahead for the rules (or if you've been with the program, you should remember the rules!). Thanks go out to all participants for making these programs successful.

This is the fourteenth and final continuation ( 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, 13 ) of my free programs.

Five (5) individuals have the chance to win two free item namings by submitting the following mandatory information: Payment and namings will be made to Jon when the first five (5) eligible participants have successfully given the above-mentioned information.

DO NOT LOAN YOUR ITEMS AFTER YOU POST! I will tell the first five people, who submit the information completely, who to loan the item to.

Final Statistics of Programs:
A total of 35 free supporterships have been handed out over 14 contests. ($350 USD)
A total of 110 free item namings have been handed out over 14 contests. ($550 USD)
Total Donations: $900 USD.
Thanks for making a great game, Jon!

SNK3R June 4 2006 6:38 PM EDT

And for those who can't read (yeah, that's you, th00p!), let me reiterate it one more time:

There will be no disqualifications before the contest begins. You can post in here before the contest begins (although I really don't see the point) and you won't be disqualified.

Maelstrom June 4 2006 6:40 PM EDT

Aww, I'll be teaching then - want to change the time for me? ;)

SNK3R June 4 2006 6:42 PM EDT

Sorry, Mael, I won't change the time. I specifically made it at this time to give the majority of time zones a fair chance. ;)

Maelstrom June 4 2006 7:21 PM EDT

I know, I was joking :)

Besides, what's the chance that I'd get my entry in before everyone else? Good luck to everyone!

SNK3R June 4 2006 7:47 PM EDT

If you have a trigger finger, there's a good chance! ;)

Mandy [Journey] June 4 2006 10:14 PM EDT

I've never won any of these.. They are all held at bad times for me. Wonder if I can get a shot at it tomarrow. What's with the last one? You gone broke? heh

Nerevas June 4 2006 10:31 PM EDT

*Begins making preparations and calculating time differences*

Seran [Hidden Agenda] June 4 2006 10:31 PM EDT

SNK, my time zone is 8 hours _ahead_. There's no way I'll be able to post in here without everyone else posting first.

SNK3R June 4 2006 10:38 PM EDT

There's always people who complain...

BlueWolf June 4 2006 10:46 PM EDT

i do'nt even have the two items to be named. :P

AdminShade June 5 2006 9:18 AM EDT

Questions for as far as the naming goes: Say I have a not so conventional name and it by accident comes out wrong on the forum, do I still have the chance to correct this and to have the proper name or will I be forced to be able to correctly display the name in the forum because It will copy/pasted?

Or will you ask for a verification during the actual naming and make sure it looks ok?

Roenall June 5 2006 11:39 AM EDT

Can we renamed item ?

SNK3R June 5 2006 2:24 PM EDT

Shade: I normally expect people to submit their names correctly the first time. I do double check on the verification page to make sure it is displaying correctly. If I think something is weird, I usually chatmail them about it. However, I sometimes don't get an answer back soon enough. In any case, post it and if I have any questions during the naming process, I will contact you.

Roenall: I suppose I have nothing against people who don't currently like a name they have and want to change it to something else. You may submit an item in your entry that is currently named.

AdminShade June 5 2006 2:38 PM EDT

Great :)

Nerevas June 5 2006 4:10 PM EDT

The pressure is mounting ahhhh

SNK3R June 5 2006 5:09 PM EDT

Congratulations to the following five people that submitted their information successfully (and the fastest, wow!):
Please loan your items for one hour to Nascence and I will name them.

Thank you for participating and congratulations once again!

AdminShade June 5 2006 5:10 PM EDT

still something strange from first post:

Five (5) individuals have the chance to win ...


... when the first five (5) eligible participants have ...


... I will tell the first five people...



5 ? first 5 ?

Nerevas June 5 2006 5:10 PM EDT

Spellcheck killed me. It didn't recognize "hilted".

http://dictionary.reference.com/search?q=hilted

Oh well, congrats to the 5 winners!
(Edit: Hilarious! It wouldn't let me post this either because of the spellchecker picking up hilted 2-now-3 times so here are more words words words to allow this post to go through).

SNK3R June 5 2006 5:35 PM EDT

All items have been named except for Slayer's 'cause he's a slowpoke and hasn't loaned them yet. ;)

For those that have loaned me your items, you will get them back within the left over time in which it takes for your item to return.

Thanks again for every person participating in the programs to make them successful! I'm glad to have helped several, several people.

Thrasher June 5 2006 5:43 PM EDT

I've never entered any of your competitions but i think its very cool of you! =) But why have you decided not to do any more?

Where did he say that?

Thanks again, everyone!

TreeVillan: Nobody knows. ;)

Novice: Check the first post in this thread. :)

Slayer: He only gave me the first MoD before it was released--no big deal. The MoD was pretty cool, though. ;)

Wow SNK sad to see it end, but amazed at how much you've done.
