    Default The more you share, the more you win!

    Stan, thanks so much for putting together the summer giveaways.

    I have a question though: how are the prize winners drawn?

    In the rules it states the more you share, the more chance of winning.

    Does this mean the only means of sharing is the pure oc giveaway thread via Facebook? Does it take into consideration how many times you share the link?

    For example, if you share the link 50 times in one day, does this give you more of a chance?

    Or is it referral based? E.g. if someone clicks your Facebook share, you get an extra entry point?

    I'm not trying to be bitter or ungrateful here, just would like some clarification on how the numbers come out of the hat.

    It's so good of you to take the time to do the competitions and I'm certain you've made a lot of people's summer

    Well that's what I hoped. But there's wording "the more you share, the more chance of winning".

    Which made me wonder, does this mean the more times you share the topic link, the more likely you are to win?

    Does it mean: The more people also enter through your share link, the more chance you have to win?

    Basically, how are the competitions measured and drawn?

    BSOD. This was already answered my man. Maybe you are hoping Stan confirms it which is fine.

    Simple share the contest post on FB for that week. The more times you shared it the more entries you received. Simple. There is a share count on the link. Stan can click on the count and it will display who shared it. As the page owner he can see who shared more then once. Simple as can be my man.

    There is no way for people to "enter off your link" because it is not going through Woobox or an app like that to record who entered off what and where. The link just brings you here. That can NOT be tracked buy the website or by Facebook. Facebook by itself does track that info but does NOT display it to the page owner in the fashion you are thinking of. That is the purpose of Woobox and Woobox type applications. They can track who shared what link and who clicked that link and who entered off what link. This was not one of those contest.

    I am a contest sweeper so I know how all of these contest work. There are other members on here that are sweepers that will verify what I just stated.

    Not trying to be mean or anything but this question coming up yet again comes off as you are upset that you didn't win or you are questioning the integrity of the winner selection process. I hope neither are the case. Stan does a tremendous amount of work with the sponsors to get these giveaways together and does not benefit by selecting only people he wants to win. How would that help gain new members? It doesn't. By making the contest easy to enter, not having post count restrictions like other sites, offering extra entries for sharing a fb post and having multiple winners each week, Stan has made this contest as fair for everyone as possible. New member or old everyone has a shot at being a winner. It is not Stans or the sponsors fault people didn't follow directions for a valid entry or come back and claim prizes. There would have been more new people win then old members if they would have claimed prizes.

    I hope Stan comes by and reads this to put this subject to bed once and for all.

    All the giveaways have ended, including the grand prize giveaway which ended last Saturday August 31st, so sharing links to the Giveaways are no longer an option seeing as they have ended. I've had very bad week, so I'll most likely start the Game key code giveaway next Saturday, September 14th

    Thanks once again for explaining. Ideally a description of the rules used from Stan would be ideal, after all, he is the one to put such tremendous effort in arranging the competition.

    So the competition is drawn by the number of shares in total each user makes on their Facebook. There is no limit?

    You can share 100 times to stand 100 times more of a chance to win?

    Also, how are the Facebook profiles linked to our usernames? Do we have to link our shares each time in the given competition thread?
    Do we need to have our Facebook profiles linked in our pure oc profile page?

    I'm not in the least down hearted or unappreciative at all.In fact, if you see my post history I didn't even enter the grand prize giveaway because I saw others far more deserved than I. I just think rules should be stated clearly so everyone stands the same chance of winning.

    Some kind of official confirmation would be nice from the kind sir himself.
