Hey everyone!

This is the Entry thread for Thursday Thread Throwdown!

All you have to do is post in here saying you're participating in the event.

What you will have to do, is post around in the forums like you would do normally; and be sure that they are productive to the thread. Anyone caught just posting random off-topic jargon will receive a warning and be suspended from the contest.

Pkgamer explains what happens a lot better than I can:
"If you take the post number of whatever post was made first after you posted the thread (in this case, it'd be 561908, since your post was 561907), and then select a random number between that and whatever post number is made last before you end the raffle, you limit the selections to posts made during that timeframe (the thread doesn't matter, since posts are numbered sequentially based on time). Then you just replace the two numbers in this link [http://community.thespeedgamers.com/viewtopic.php?p=561907#p561907] with the number you select, and there's your winner, assuming they entered the raffle."

We have several raffle prizes-
- Codes for the Binding of Isaac
- Humble Bundle 2 Code
- Humble Bundle 3 Code
- $5 - $10 for Wii or Steam games

Seems like an awesome event! Not really a throwdown though....... _objection_

Interesting idea, hopefully I can win something!

So, all we have to do is post on the forums like we normally would? Sounds good to me haha

07-11-2012, 10:54 PM
You can count me in.

07-11-2012, 11:14 PM

I guess I can give this a shot too.

07-12-2012, 09:39 AM
I'm game.

07-12-2012, 11:42 AM
Count me in!

07-12-2012, 01:12 PM
I'm game for this.

07-12-2012, 01:32 PM
I'm participating in the event. This sounds very cool!

07-12-2012, 01:34 PM
Sure, I'm in.

07-12-2012, 02:06 PM
Sounds interesting! Count me in!

07-12-2012, 02:23 PM
Yeah, I'll enter.

07-12-2012, 07:52 PM
By the way, does this end at midnight CST. Doesn't say end point.

07-12-2012, 08:39 PM
It ends between 10:30 and midnight CST. It's unspecified right now.

07-12-2012, 08:51 PM
This seems like an interesting and different way to hold a contest. Not sure if intuitive or just different.

Anyway, I'd say I was in but I'm so much more a lurker than a poster. Good luck to all entrants, and may the best post win. :D

07-12-2012, 09:31 PM
Hey guys, I just got home. I'm gonna go ahead and let this run until midnight CST before I pick the winners. So any last minute entrants, you've got about an hour and a half to enter!

07-12-2012, 11:01 PM
And the raffle is officially closed! I'll edit this post with our four winners in the next 5 minutes or so.

07-12-2012, 11:02 PM
Sweet, I'm anxious to see the result!

07-12-2012, 11:04 PM
I think I posted quite a bit today, considering all of my posts so far are from today. I don't think I'll be able to keep up at the rate I was at today, but I want to become a very active member.

07-12-2012, 11:24 PM
Sorry for the wait, folks, but the moment you've all been waiting for is finally here! Using a range of 561908 - 562258, the four numbers that were randomly selected using Excel's RANDBETWEEN function were (in order):

561967 - dragonair314
562146 - DrewStern
562026 - Stonepaw
562012 - Muzy72

So congrats to our winners! The marketing team will be contacting you with info about your prizes over the next few days or so. Priority for prize selection will be the order in which your numbers were selected (so dragonair first, then Drew, and so on).

And that concludes the Thursday Thread Throwdown. Thanks for playing, everyone! I hope you all enjoyed it!

I actually won!?! Sweet!

Wait, are we doing something like this again during the Summer Camp, because I completely forgot about this and missed it (darn you Persona 3, distracting me, so). :cry:

Unfortunately, there won't be another throwdown thread for this summer camp. But our next forums event (Scavenger Hunt Sunday) should be interesting and fun for those that choose to participate.
