    I got a PM stating that there are winners who have issues with sending me a PM. I need to see what the Admins are at this so in the meantime send it to my email. I cannot post it here so you need to ask someone here if you do not know it. If I have in the past sent you an email from a past win use that. I will ask the Admins if I will consider you as winners but the deadline is today (because it is the 3rd day). You have all day to send me the details via email.

    To those who have issues with sending me a PM send it to my email in the meantime. All the Mods know my email (can't post it here so please ask them). If I have sent you an email previously from a past win use that email address. Today is the last day of the 3rd day so I'll wait just today. I'll ask the Admins if that can be considered. They will have to check first.

    WINNERS (past and present),

    ANYONE WHO WILL BE CAUGHT TRADING LICENSES WON FROM THIS FORUM TO OTHER FORUMS WILL BE BANNED.
    Your win license is tagged with the details that you have given when claiming your prize. I will personally inform the developer/representative to void the license awarded to you if found to have been traded or used indiscriminately.

    YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED!

    Heimdal/AppCheck Pro WINNERS,

    For the love of GOD...is it really hard to understand the rules? Check your PM's you have 2+ days remaining! Starting today the next round of winner claims will be checked on the 3rd day (last day) so you will not have a chance to amend what you sent. This will be done to teach you all a lesson.

    If you have concerns/issues with any giveaway/contest do not post your concern in the giveaway page. USE THE PM FEATURE!

    I will post additional guidelines and rules for the giveaway in the next couple of days especially on PM claim etc. In absence if this the giveaway rules stands (unless otherwise stated).

    We have to have some sense here because you guys, especially the winners who do not get it. I am surprised why!

    READ THE CONFIRMATION I SEND YOU. IF IT'S STATED THERE THAT THE DEVELOPER WILL SEND YOU YOUR WIN/LICENSE VIA EMAIL PLEASE WAIT FOR IT.

    You waste my time on petty things. From now on "no leniency"!

    GIVEAWAY/CONTEST REMINDERS

    Giveaway/Contest Rules and content

    1. Rules are stated in each giveaway/contest posted. All giveaway/contests that we host here have been approved by the developer/sponsor/representative and they have been given PDF copies of the giveaway/contest page prior posting it here so they can check what is posted and what has been sent to them. Unlike other sites, I make it a point to have the sponsor/developer/representative check the contents first prior posting it. All contents of the giveaway pages posted here have been approved by both parties (Tweakbytes/sponsor/developer/representative). Unless otherwise specified in the giveaway/contest page or thread, the existing rules are enforced. No exemptions will be made.

    2. Do not use the giveaway/contest thread to ask questions there. I will delete any content other than an entry or congratulatory statement. Use the PM feature.

    3. At the moment those who join cannot edit their entry once it is posted so please make sure that the all pertinent info such as links are correct before posting it. Check the link first and open it in a browser. If there are images to be posted via file/image hosting sites, please make sure that it will be shown correctly. Use the PM feature if you need to amend something. Approval will depend on the issue at hand as the burden of proof is yours. If I do not see it fit to amend your entry for you then it will stay like that. Period.

    Members who join will only be allowed to join or enter a giveaway/contest once. So if a member "double-posts" I will delete both entries. You will have to enter your entry again. Other forums will out-rightly disregard your entry and not include you in the draw. Use the PM feature if you need to amend something and wait for my reply. Approval will depend on the issue at hand as the burden of proof is yours. If I do not see it fit to amend your entry for you then it will stay like that. Period.

    4. If you do not agree with the existing rules of the giveaway/contest, then DON'T JOIN! Period.

    5. Those who join must see to it that their PM is working properly. Check it with Admin before joining because I will not entertain "claim" via email again. This was done only during the Halloween 2017 giveaway/contests. Make sure of it. Otherwise if you cannot send me a PM because of issues I will forfeit your win. Period. PM issues is beyond my control. Do not make it my problem.

    Any irrelevant post or retraction from a giveaway/contest entered (especially when winners have already been announced) will be deemed as inappropriate behavior and will be dealt with accordingly. A penalty will be given ranging from suspension from the giveaways or outright ban (from the giveaways or forum itself) and I will see to that.

    Penalties will start to be given this Christmas/New Year giveaway.




    Winner PM Claim

    1. A winner's PM claim should be concise and sufficient with the proper details as required. State what giveaway/contest you won and your details. Don't make me guess what/where you won because at a given time there are 2 or 3 giveaway/contests conclusions. Unless otherwise specified in the giveaway/contest page, Name/Email is required as it will be sent to the developer/sponsor/representative for documentation purposes. Again, unless otherwise specified this is a requirement. No exemptions to this rule. Period.

    A winner is given 3 days to send a PM claim win. No extensions on this. You have 3 days to give the correct/sufficient data required in the giveaway page. It is understood that within that timeframe you have checked your PM claim as correct. If I received an insufficient/incorrect PM claim at the end of the 3rd day then a "no confirmation" will be given. A "no confirmation" renders your win forfeit. If I confirm your claim then good for you. Period.

    A winner sends a PM to "claim" his prize. I as host will "confirm" that claim. If I do not confirm your claim then your win is forfeit. Period. Do not confuse yourself with both words ("claim" and "confirm") as they are different. Some state in their PM claim, "I confirm that I won in the xxx giveaway etc etc.." It is me, as host, who will confirm a claim and not the other way around. Remember that.

    If a winner has won 2 or more giveaway/contests, then a winner should send a PM distinctively for each of the giveaway/contest he won. Each giveaway/contest page has that requirement. I do not understand why a winner is so lazy to send a PM claim for each of his win. No exemptions to this rule. Period.

    2. I have been checking out data about winners who seem to disregard claiming their win. There are 2 or 3 members here that have that behavior. They join and then disregard claiming their win. This is unfair to those who religiously join and follow the rules. Such will be dealt accordingly. I just need to check it out with Admins about the sanctions/strike rule.


    Confirmation of License/Win Reception

    A winner is "required" to confirm that they have received their appropriate win. This is for documentation purposes. It is a requirement. It is only proper and decent to do so.

    If a license/win is received via email from me. Kindly reply to that email if I sent you that email as confirmation that you have received it.

    If a sponsor/developer/representative sent it to you. Reply to that. Don't forget to say "thank you" at the very least to them. Afterwards send me word via PM or email. Do not be lazy about this. I collect all data via screenshots and will sanction you the next time you join. Failure to do so will have implications for you when joining the next round of giveaway/contests. This is a warning to you "winner".

    Developers/sponsors/representatives are busy that they ask data from us about this. Some scrutinize it especially those that do not have the time to email winners and give the licenses to me so I will be the one to send it to the winners. At any given point in time some instead send it to me so it will not be a hindrance to their busy schedule. Data in the form of confirmation and email copy is sent to them in return. I keep a copy of all of it also. Documentation, my dear gentlemen, is always vital (and it will be if you encounter issues later on).

    License issues etc.

    If there are issues with your awarded license/win, all our giveaway/contest pages have their appropriate support links. Use that. I can communicate in lieu of your issue/problem but it is your duty as license owner to contact support whatever the issue is. I keep documentations of all email correspondences between me and the developers and I use that whenever there are issues but it is the duty of the license owner to communicate directly to support about any issues or problems regarding their license win. Do not make me their support team assistant.

    Time and again, members who join and lately "winners" give an attitude of inappropriate behavior ranging from asking for more considerations to blatant disregard of existing rules. All have been shown leniency here but it has taken it's toll on me.

    So my advice,

    "Follow the rules or you will be dealt with accordingly."

    Winners,

    I really am thinking now that winners here either do not know how to read or understand better. There is no reason you cannot understand simple, explicit instructions that are laid-out here. There are more than a lot of members you can ask here. There is no reason at all! You just do not give that extra effort o your part. You either play lazy or outright dumb. Time and again I get members/winners who are so so...You all have been warned. You have 2+ days.

    PM ISSUES ARE BEYOND MY CONTROL. DO NOT MAKE IT MY PROBLEM. I AM NOT ADMIN! TAKE IT UP WITH ADMIN!

    It's all printed there CLEAR AND SIMPLE!

    [​IMG]

    Warnings will be given out to you winners. If you will be like this always I have suggested a strike-policy and then you will be suspended/banned from the giveaway/contest.

    All further giveaway/contests are suspended for a while. Will just finish up the prizes.

    Winners you know the drill. Please be patient on the licenses as the devs will be the one to send it to your details not me.

    Thanks for all your support in the giveaway/contest threads, reviews and your cooperation.

    Non-winners/Winners,

    When it is the sponsor/developer or representative that select the winners it is their prerogative and right to do it whatever, however they want to do it.

    IF they will select the winners. They will select it on their own. PERIOD.

    We do not have even the slightest right to suggest how they will do it as it is their prerogative and right because it is a simple fact,
    they are the sponsor. PERIOD!

    We should be thankful for their participation.

    Other forums always do it via random.org and limit the participation because you used a VPN etc etc...Here we are more lenient. SO PLEASE. DO NOT SOUR GRAPE ME. I do this for free here. For you to have at least a software license you need not buy.

    I myself sometimes need a software but as host I cannot join and that is the discipline there. Some who host at other forums blatantly ask a license for their own use. I do not. I leave it to the sponsors. Sometimes they appreciate what we do here even the reviewers get a license of their own. I work out licenses for the reviewers because it is in a way payment for their effort and help. Sometimes the sponsors give me but that is rarely. Most of them not. As most sponsors has already pointed it out even before negotiations take place "any extra requests cannot be accommodated. The giveaway/contest sponsorship is enough etc etc".

    Check out the efforts done in other forums in exchange for a giveaway/contest. They say they make a review but when you look at it closely it isn't a review but a mere "expanded-overview". How we present the giveaways take time and effort. In other forums they do it just like that copy/paste etc. Not much effort. Here I make it a point that the presentation is different because the sponsors like it. If I make a review I see to it that it is "different" and not just a mere "expanded-overview". The sponsors notices that and they agree that our reviews here stand-out and how we present their software is unlike others they see. I/we(with the help of the MTAC team) do this so sponsors will like us. I can't offer to buy licenses to have a contest. I am dead broke. I do this alone. I seek out friends and former sponsors to help me out. But even if I/we together with the MTAC team make all of that, even if they say, "I like your review or I like it" sometimes they still do not have a spare for me...The giveaway/contest sponsorship is enough. AND THUS IT IS ALL FOR YOU GUYS.

    Some even had the inkling to question how the sponsor/developer/representative choose their winners...Some
    sour-grape..


    How much more FREE work do you want me to do for you guys?

    Think about it....
