K, here is the skinny! Time to run my own little contest. No in-game time required! I have created a fairly simple five question quiz about content that has been on the blog. What you will do is send me an e-mail with the answers to the three questions (give questions)… five questions and I will give out three prizes as described below (Hopefully some of you just got that movie reference).
CONTEST SUBMISSIONS ARE NOW CLOSED!
Thanks to everyone who sent in answers! I will be going over them this weekend to find all entries with the correct answers and randomly selecting two winners as well as finding the first person who sent in all the correct answers to receive a tabard!
I will post the contest questions in this section of this post at 9 PM Mountain time today (Tuesday, September 2nd, 2008) and will let the contest run through 5 PM Mountain Time Friday (Friday, September 5th, 2008). Please be sure to have your submissions in before that time.
1. What is the name of my tamed Humar the Pridelord? (Peaking over there in the blog header)
2. What was the fearsome name of the guild I was in with Warbull and Moirainne?
3. All my pet names (not counting the beta pets) have one thing in common. What is it?
4. My wife has three characters on Illidan. What are the classes of two of them?
5. What’s the name of my retired Night Elf Warrior?
Hint: Use the now functioning search. :)
I would prefer that each person only enter once, as I will not accept multiple entries from the same character or e-mail address. I will do my best to check and see if characters exist, etc to prevent duplicate submissions. But if someone is really intent on entering more than once, there isn’t much I can do.
E-mail your answers to firstname.lastname@example.org.
When you submit your answers please format your e-mail as follows:
[Body of E-mail]:
1. Question Answer
2. Question Answer
3. Question Answer
4. Question Answer
5. Question Answer
One prize will be given to the first person to e-mail me all the correct answers. Two other prizes will be given to 2 random participants from all eligible submissions.
Chances of winning are . . . well based on how many entries I get. My random selection will probably involve figuring out how many correct entries I get and then asking two co-workers to pick a number 1 through however many I get. Unless I can come up with a better system. Or maybe just /random 1-whatever in-game. But we all know how we feel about the in-game roll system sometimes. :)
The prizes will be one of the FIVE awesome tabards available through UDE. Each winner will be able to choose which one they like the most.
1. Tabard of the Void
2. Tabard of the Arcane
3. Tabard of Frost
4. Tabard of Fury
5. Tabard of Nature
I will use the weekend to go through the entries and compile all eligible submissions and notify the winners. As well I will make a post the following Monday with the winners once I have confirmed their information as detailed below:
If you are selected as a winner, I will post your name on the blog in a separate post as well as notifying you by e-mail in order to verify your character name, server, and that it was a working e-mail address as well as which tabard you would like. After doing that, I will e-mail you an in-game code that you will redeem at at Landro Longshot in Booty Bay. After sending you the code by e-mail, barring out an error on my part in copying the code, I will believe that it worked successfully as all the codes I have redeemed so far have worked perfectly. I will be more than willing to help you, however, if the need arises.
Hopefully everyone enjoys the contest and I look forward to your entries! Tell your friends! (Or don’t, if you want a better chance at winning) ;)
