WinRAR GIVEAWAY - INSTRUCTIONS ON HOW TO ENTER DRAWING
« on: September 19, 2005, 10:01:45 AM »
DonationCoder.com will be giving away 5 copies of WinRAR in the next week (the winner of our best archive tool review http://review.donationcoder.com).

The free copies will be given out in one week (on september 26).

To enter your name in the drawing to win a free copy of WinRAR, send your forum name + email to:
giveaway@donationcoder.com

and put the word winrar in the topic so its easier for us to keep track.

NOTE:
you must be an honorary or donating member to be elligible to win one of these giveaway copies.
If you've already received a copy of another piece of software from us in a previous giveaway you can still enter again but we'll probably do something to make it more likely that new people who haven't had a chance yet will win.


Thanks to zaine for the review that brought about these donated copies, and to WinRAR for donating them to us.

a lot of people entered for this one, winners were picked at random this morning, and everyone who entered was sent an email regarding whether you won or not.

if you didn't win a free copy, please don't feel bad, we will be having more drawings soon and your time will come if you keep entering :)

just an update:

winrar sales support are as dysfunctional as the worst of them - it really boggles my mind sometimes how these companies operate...
but have no fear, we are on it and should have the free copies and discounts any day now.

ive emailed winrar about 5 times in last 5 weeks -
seriously they are messed up -  most emails are just ignored.

however i started getting hysterical and cc'ing different email addresses in yesterdays email and i did finally get a response this morning promising to get back to me tomorrow.. i apologize for the annoying nature of this, but believe me no one is more irritated than me and i am on top of this.  i expect will have it sorted this week.  i hope.  thanks everyone for being patient.

No problem, Mouser.  It's a great program, so I'm looking forward to getting the full version.  Thanks for arranging the giveaway and discounts, and thanks for persevering with their incompetent help(?)desk.
