Default MotorWorld.net Giveaway!

MotorWorld.net iPad Mini Giveaway + more!

We are doing this giveaway to spark some life back into MW and to show how serious we are on trying to accomplish that. We all know the site has been down for well over a year and has had its ups and downs before that. We hope this contest will smooth all that out and bring back what JW/MW was before! The details are below....

Why we are doing the giveaway?

First and foremost, we want to have some fun by giving away free stuff. We will be giving away a total of 10 prizes ranging from a 16GB Black iPod Mini to $10 Amazon gift cards. We want to reward the members who consistently post quality information and possibly encourage others to do the same. Without all of you, this forum would not be able to succeed. This is our way of giving back and thanking everyone who contributes time to our forum.

So, how does the contest work???

Every post has a unique ID number assigned by the forum software. Starting RIGHT NOW, each on-topic post made before October 31, 2013 (11:59 pm EST) will count as an entry to the giveaway. To be eligible for this contest, you must have at least 30 posts total by the contest ending date by October 31th, 2013 at 11:59 EST.

Posts within Off topic area will NOT count as winning numbers. Also, "off-topic" posts that are made outside of General Chat will be omitted from winning. Examples of off-topic posts are: one word replies like "cool", "nice", :smiley:, "bump", etc., and anything else that is clearly off-topic in nature. Determination of a quality post will be made at the discretion of Shaggy and BIRDMAN. Staff is also eligible for this contest, expect of course for BIRDMAN and I(Shaggy).


The more you post quality information, the better chances of winning one of the prizes!


The contest will end on the last post made October 31st at 11:59 pm EST. We will use Random.org to enter the range of post ID numbers that were made during the giveaway. We will run the Random.org query and reference the associated post. The first "on-topic" post that is selected by its ID will be awarded the iPad Mini to the member who posted it. We will continue using the same method for the rest of the 9 other prizes:


Grand Prize- 16GB Black iPad mini


2nd Prize- 16GB Black iPod Touch


3rd Prize-16GB Black iPod Nano



4th-5th place prizes: $100 Amazon gift cards

6th-7th place prizes: $50 Amazon gift cards

8th-10th place prizes: $10 Amazon gift cards




Fine Print- Contest starts with the post ID number following this one and will end with the last post on 10/31/13 at 11:59 AM (EST). The Grand Prize is an 16g Black iPad Mini. There will only be 1 Grand prize winner for the iPad mini and 9 other prize winners. All prize winners will be selected using Random.org and only posts made in the selected dates listed will be eligible. Winners will be contacted via PM (Private Message) and will have up 7 days from contest end to claim the prize awarded. If not claimed within the 7 days, we will select another winner. One prize per person. If an International member wins one of the top 3 prizes, he/she will receive a gift card equal to the value of the prize. We reserve the right to remove any posts for any reason during the contest period and ban users. Any posts or members banned or removed during the contest period will be deemed ineligible to win the contest. We reserve the right to change, alter, or cancel this contest at any time for any reason. There will need to be at least a total of 1500 posts made within the contest time frame or the prizes will not be given out.

That's pretty much it! If you have any questions about this contest, please post them here or you can pm me.

Thanks again and good luck to all!!

You're going to get a lot of new members wanting the ipad if this hits the sweeps/freebie sites. Kinda sucks for us that have been here a while but as long the rules are met not much we can do.

All that they had was the forum. The videos/pics are gone I'm afraid.
