    Dear registered members,

    We are rapidly heading towards 5,000 registered members - this board is growing fast indeed!

    5,000 registered members is kind of a milestone,and we want to celebrate this upcoming event.

    Thus, we are giving away free licenses for top notch security software as soon as member number 5,001 has signed up. Those who sign up ultimately two days after we've welcomed member number 5,001 will participate in this randomly chosen "give away" as well.

    Courtesy - and big thanks to software developpers providing us with this possibility, we will provide free software licenses (no doubles!):

    courtesy to DCS:


    courtesy to Look'n'Stop:


    courtesy to Eset:


    courtesy to our highly valued moderator Jack:


    The randomly chosen winners will be contacted by email, and they will have to provide a non web based email address. In case we do not receive an answer to our email within a week, or our email bounces, we will pick at random another winner instead. Please take notice it might take us approx. a week to verify facts.

    For the record: we will verify one winner will win only one available license. Finally: our team members (moderators and administrators) are excluded from taking part.

    Our decisions are final, and not open for discussion in any way.

    Our goal has been and will be providing support and help the best we can. We do value our members, their input and helping one another out in a friendly atmosphere highly as well - this is our way of saying "thank you all, for participating on this board, helping out, posting news, providing useful info in a friendly way".

    Feel free to spread the word!

    On behalf of our team,

    paul

    By random, you mean that any of the 5,000+ members has a chance to win, right? o_O

    Does that mean we should change our email address for this Forum if we have always used Hotmail?

    Thank you, Acadia.

    Acadia,

    Not at all - better leave it the way it is ;). Winners using a web based email address over here will be contacted using that email address.

    regards.

    :D i wonder how there going to do it


    i guess it be posiable to simply dowenload all the usser names in a small sorting utlity and let it pick randomely

    that would be cool

    but if not i feel sorry for the person that has to do the 5000 or so names by hand lol

    Blaze,

    We had a secret "pre-vote" and decided you were JUST the person to write out the names of each of the 5000 members on itty-bitty ballots. Make sure they're itty-bitty or you will have to start ALL over again.

    Hey Blazey, my dear buddy,

    I'm a few days off home; sorry that I didn't tell you in private.
    I'm (trying to) helping a friend getting off the hospital.

    Hey, we all know who is the real Blaze ;)

    Take care all of you my friends.
    I'll see you all in a few days.

    Cheers, Jan.

    Whoah, if Eset, DCS and LnS continue shelling out free licenses like this, I predict Wilders will soon have 10 000 members. :D
