We are going to be doing a contest here for upload credit, games, and even some seedbox time. The way that it will work is going to be that for everything you do here at the site there will be points for it. Be it donating, uploading, downloading, posting in the forums, or just plain old lurking in IRC. You will even get points for just being an active member on the site!
1. Donate - This is the easiest way because it will net you the most "points" in the contest. When you donate you will get 10 points per dollar you donate. With a minimum donation being 5 bucks.
2. Upload - This is also an easy way to get some easy points. For each upload you do there will be 5 points given. The more that you upload, the more you get!
3. Download (and complete it) - Just download anything on the site and you will get 3 points for every completed download.
4. Seed - You will receive 2 points just for seeding a torrent. Every 15 minutes you will be given 2 points and it will just continue to go as long as you are seeding that torrent with torrents stacking!
5. Post in the forums - Finally there is the all important forum post bonus. If you post a thread (or reply) you will be given a point for each post. If it is a useful post you may get more, depending on the type and quality of the post.
There are other ways as well, but those will be disclosed at a later date.
Prizes are still being worked out as well but right now the following things will be available:
1. Games - Dead Space, Burnout Paradise, Crysis 2 Maximum Edition, Medal Of Honor and Mirror's Edge. These will all be steam keys so you will have to have an account but they are free! We havent really gotten specifics on these, but know they will all be up for grabs!
2. Bonus Points - The all important currency here. We will be giving out bonus points in special denominations depending on the winners and the activity. Again, this will be disclosed later.
3. Seedbox - Again we are going to be giving away some seedbox time. There will be (hopefully) 2 or 3 of these included in the prize pool
This may be a lot of information, but there's a lot to this one! It's not just a contest, it's a Summer Spectacular contest!
Keep eyes posted for a news post with all of the specifics when it comes to this, but for now build up those libraries and get ready to have some fun!
