    Dear all the members here at MDL,
    Since, I'm the only person organizing contest here, I welcome other member/s who have contact with Vendors to organize such contest or give feedback /request to arrange future MDL giveaway. Please remember to request or give your suggestion depending on the response from the vendors and availability of the software.

    Yesterday I got a mail from Lamantine Software famous for STICKY PASSWORD MANAGER that they're intrested to make a campaign here at MDL, thus I'm seeking opinion from the members here, if the software is useful for you or not .

    I'm negotiating with ESET India to organize another ESS 8 full 1 year contest, if succeeded it'll be held after few days.

    I welcome all members opinion/suggestion/feedback here.:)

    I was feeling nostalgic about my older contest threads today and the search results bring me here.
    Some new successful Contests threads as well as some disastrous.
    here are those threads for reference;

    I had organized HitmanPro contest it ended with a failure. Very less and irregular contestant participated.

    Okay I'll try to organize another but their condition/s are unsuitable for MDL environment like FB ,G+ or Twitter share and you know the members here are allergic to those social networking sites.:p

    Update;
    ESET India has given consent to sponsor '20' licenses of ESS 8 full 1 year.
    The participating members will be requested to share the giveaway links at least one of the social networking site/s.

    What's your opinion?

    Lol, I visit this forum(not this section of the forum) multiple times a day, it's been like that since 2008 when I was first introduced to this site by a friend.

    It's better to conduct contests of popular products which are also rare to get for free than the products(even if they are popular) that can get usually offered in giveaways multiple times on multiple sites. Limit the number of licenses available for the contest & do it frequently, then I'm sure you will not feel bad for the lack of response.

    By the way what you are doing is much appreciated. TC.

    I just want to say I do appreciate all the giveaways and contests you run Sid. I have been following them for a good while and always seemed to miss some of the ones I really liked, especially Malware and Antivirus software giveaways. I bookmarked the thread so I can be more alert. Cheers for the time and effort you put in.

    Hello , contestants and winners of just finished WinRAR contest!
    I've received 9 out of 10 winners PMs and 1 more is left.
    My question;
    Should I submit them to the RARLAB for preparing personal license or re-randomize the lists? :confused:

    Re-randomizing the list makes little sense to me :thinking::tumbleweed:

    With all due respect, doesn't the silence after this your last post above tell you something?
    If I was you I'd think that silence is telling me "Do as you like, it's your contest and you are doing a big favor to the community to participate in it" imao :D

    Submit them to rarlabs, why take one mistake and make it into something worse by re-randomizing? You have told people they won, they offered their information to you. You should do the right thing and give them their winning keys.

    Mine, feel free to do what you will with it, the rest should be allowed to receive theirs

    No need to re-randomize the list, continue with the current one.

    Next time,
    1. Please define the rules correctly.
    2. Elimination should be backed by proper cause.
    3. If personal details are required, mention it clearly.

    Further stretching this matter will be useless; it would be better if you contact with any mods/admin instead of throwing the question in chatbox.

    You are now blowing this out of proportion. Sid made a mistake in changing rules. Hopefully he learned from it. He hasnt said you arnt getting your prize - tho with your attitude your making me wish more and more you hadn't won. All your whining can do now is spoil it for future contest and other potential future winners.

    I didn't know how uncivilized people are here. If you're talking about the rule then why don't you read the rule/s or other information written in RED first then entered the contest. I just wanted the opinion of others not started re randomization.. which I wouldn't do.
    I'm a member at other forums too and have taken part in numerous contest won very little, never shown my disappointment (shown like this in this thread) over any loss or bad decision by the admin. But people were more generous and offered me few keys, I owe them a lot. When I got spare license/s I distributed them here and in other forums I visit. You can check my profile at MT/Raymond cc/Tipradar etc. (sid_16)

    One post is enough to show your disagreement not spamming the whole page with same intent. Secondly you're not worthy enough to ban somebody here it's the administrative decision not yours..just calm down.

    I've decided to send all the winners information to the RARLAB for licenses preparation which may take few working days.

    I'm announcing wholeheartedly here that after finishing the eset contest, no more contest will be seen from me.
