I am well aware of how deep NCIX is involved in this forum. It would be safe to say NCIX owns this place for all intents and purposes.

It's only natural that HWC and NCIX would be close. We both have an interest in the other's survival. Plus, without NCIX's support, we would have never recovered from last year's attack.

But seriously... the alternative is no contest at all. I'll take a small chance to win a FREE contest for a $2k PC over NO chance any day. Would it suck if a single poster won? Sure. But that's the way it goes. I'm not on HWC to win free stuff, so the chance to do so is just a bonus.


Exactly!

I also want to bring up that the last time we put in "bonus tiers" for members with more than 100 posts, plenty of members artificially padded their post count with nonsense or necro'd old threads in an effort hit the next tier.

Basically, we're damned if we do and damned if we don't
.
this is exactly what I was trying to say so know one wins only so much can be done.

I agree its disappointing to see 20 new posters for every regular member. Its good publicity for the site though, and a more active site means more frequent give aways. I hope that hwc is able to figure out if people are posting multiple times under different email addresses and accounts, as I'm not sure how they could stop it. I can't complain though as I have had the good luck of winning hardware twice in the last 4 years!

I understand Why...I get it. I entered. If 4000 people enter the contest, those are still better odds than most other lotteries I've played.

Thing is the majority of those new people never actually participate. I have been here since the beginning and all I mostly see is the same few regulars posting over and over. There is the odd duck who decides to remain faithful to the size but its not that many.

But some of them do, and gaining new members is never a bad thing. Be it 1 or 100.
And for all the bitching, we already have new recruits making posts elsewhere on the forum and participating.
That's a win in my books.
