New LinuxQuestions.org Contest


I am happy to announce a new LinuxQuestions.org contest! This contest is being sponsored by the folks at VMware. I'd like to thank Stephanie from VMware for working with me on this. The prize will be a free copy of the soon to be released VMware Workstation 4.5. There will be two winners for this contest. So how do you win? It's simple. On March 30th I will select 2 members at random from the LinuxQuestions.org DB. You must have at least:

1 post in the forums - http://www.linuxquestions.org/questions/
1 entry in the HCL - http://www.linuxquestions.org/hcl/
1 entry in the reviews section - http://www.linuxquestions.org/reviews/

That's right, you are eligible simply by contributing to LinuxQuetions.org. Remember, the script that chooses from random will be run on March 30th, so make sure you have meet the criteria by then. Also remember, entries to the HCL and the reviews section are moderated, so please do not add fictitious entries - they will not be counted. If you have any questions let me know.

BTW, if you have never heard of VMware or would like more info you should check out http://www.vmware.com/ as they really do produce a fine product. If you *have* to dual boot for some reason VMware is the way to go. They do have a 30 day trial if you'd like to try it out.

'New LinuxQuestions.org Content' should be 'New LinuxQuestions.org Contest'

You do have a way to change the news title, right...?

Just a little thing, what happens if a member which has not been active in a year wins it? Does it still count, because if you dont come here in a year, would that not mean you are not longer interested in this place?

I don't think a member that hasn't been active in a year would have an entry in the Reviews or HCL section, especially the HCL because, IIRC, that hasn't been around that long.

Craigwd, there is no official mimimum. Succinct is fine, as long as you get your point across.
