THIA Contest Rules and Regulations

Contests are open to users who have registered on the forum and are active in the community.

In order to be eligible for the contest you MUST fill in your information during registration in the "Contest Details" section. Failure to do this will delay or possibly even prevent you from joining the contest. If you registered before this option appeared or have forgotten to include your information please Private Message Dot50Cal with the following information:
  • State
  • City
  • Birthdate
  • Zipcode
Contests are created at random times however there will always be a waiting period from when the contest is announced to when it is open. This is so that the maximum amount of people who visit the sitte can know when the contest opens.

Currently with the site being under construction the way contests are held has been modified. We will now modify a post in the forum. The post can be made by anyone and not just a Moderator or and Administrator. The post will be modified with the following image:

You are then tasked with finding the post which contains the image. When you find the post with this image in it, Click it and it will currently take you to an email form. Simply fill in your Forum User Name in the body of the email and send it. That is all you need to do. I will email winners as they send in their form.

Since the prizes differ each time the number of winners also fluxuates. Also since we realize that not every winner can use a particular assigned prize, we allow the winners to select their prize. Who gets first choice is determined by who finds the image and sends their entry in first and so on.

Once I confirm your place as a winner in the contest I will ask what prizes you would want and in what order. You do not need to pay for shipping and the contest is open to users who are anywhere in the world.

Do not send in multiple entries. One is sufficient and you will not win all the prizes. Only 1 prize per user is permitted.

Do not attempt to cheat in the contest! This is very important. Anyone caught cheating in the contest will be:
  • Banned from the forum and website forever
  • Have his or her city blacklisted on the contest
We take cheating VERY seriously. It does not matter who cheats, the above actions will be taken against them. Cheating consists of:
  • Informing other users of the contest links location and or form
  • Using multiple accounts to get prizes
We have many different ways of detecting cheaters so do not try and attempt this.

During the contests running time we will disable the following on the forum in order to prevent cheating:
  • New User Registrations
  • Private Messaging
  • Searching
The contest will run until I receive enough entry's to cover all the prizes. We also reserve the right to deny prizes to any user for any reason. If someone does not respond to my email we will then go to the next user who submitted their form.
