While questioning everything would be superfluous,ignoring the question begged by implications that are not reasonable inferred is a resolution of ignorance.Where inquiry is unwelcome, it is most necessary.

I don't think the the contest/giveaway/raffle/sweepstakes/drawing/lottery/competition etc was "questioned" as I believe you mean it. I think its a reasonable discussion of its ambiguity, which is often an accompaniment to "simple". So don't misunderstand. I am not implying that HotHardware is doing anything other than offering a legitimate chance to everyone who participates to acquire this luxurious beast of a machine. I am however making the point that if someone where to ask me, I could not conclusively explain how the winner would be decided.

I do enjoy this site. While I rarely feel I have something to contribute, the fact that most content here is original and not a mostly lifted off another site, which also lifted is a HUGE plus over those Gawker folk.

That was a detail response there, analog.  Inquiry is fine.  In short, the  judges are looking for the best contributor to the site and we will be picking that person based on their efforts in the community; and not just the number of contributions but the quality as well.  Hope this helps.

I understood this. I see nothing wrong with the method of your giveaway and think HH are awesome for having this.

It's just in my somewhat anal retentive nature to want the contest to be properly descriptive in it's title, and to actually consider discussing this in the forum to be a contribution.

A really awesome high quality contribution. ;P

Don't worry, I still enjoy my Just Cause 2 copy HH gave me! Thanks HH!

I still visit daily and read the comments and try to chip in when I can. Great site, keep it up.

this is such a powerhouse. I would love to use its full potential to process my digital images as well as scientific analyses.

I knew these weren't "randomly selected".  Could you take that out of the contest announcements and list the judges' names?

Good catch, eunoia.  That was a copy/paste typo from a previous contest.  I removed the word random and the judges are me and Marco.

A WD velociraptor and an SSD?! Damn this baby is gonna pack a punch in terms of speed

and not to shoddy on the other components either if I might say:)

So HotHardware, let me get this straight,

This is a contest where the winner will be decided upon who has been contributing the most knowledgeable, interesting, entertaining comments across the HotHardware's blog articles, based on the "Thumbs Up, Thumbs Down" voting system?

I don't think the Thumbs up/Thumbs down system does it O Sunday. Of course Dave or Marco would decide that, but I think the that system will to some degree influence it maybe. The final decision is made by Dave and Marco with that as maybe a degree of the decision. The problem I think with the thumbs up and down rating system is that it can be manipulated rather easily.

Of course I am also just commenting on this, and any real answer from be from Dave and Marco alone. So Dave and Marco?
