    Straight from the horses mouth.

    example @hotukdeals "Answer" #winblackops

    Sadly I failed the first question based on this.


    -----------------

    There’s a Call of Duty: Black Ops giveaway happening tonight, courtesy of HUKD and Dealspwn. Be there – 6pm until midnight – we’re going to be giving away copies of Activision’s new shooter on the hour, every hour.

    You lucky, lucky people. That’s right, you’d better get following Dealspwn and HUKD on Twitter, ladies and gents, because tonight we’re going to be having something of a party. No, I’m not talking about the kind of party where you drink too much, throw up into a pot plant and blame it on the neighbour’s dog, this is a Twitter party. So get following, prepare yourselves with snacks and sustenance, because we’re about to have it large…cyberspace style!

    This is how things are going to work. Every hour between 6pm and midnight there’ll be a question going up on either the @Dealspwn or @HotUKDeals stream. We’ll be kicking things off at six and then alternating proceedings into the night like so:

    •6pm – Dealspwn
    •7pm – HUKD
    •8pm – Dealspwn
    •9pm – HUKD
    •10pm – Dealspwn
    •11pm – HUKD
    •Midnight – Dealspwn
    All you need to do is reply with the answer and the #winblackops hashtag within the hour.

    Individual question contests will last an hour, after which five winners with the correct answer will be chosen at random for each question. You can expect the 6pm winners to be announced at 7.30, the 7pm winners to be announced at 8.30 and so on.

    A few house rules:

    •One entry per account per question. You’re welcome to compete in all of the question contests, but the maximum you’ll win is one copy.
    •One entrant per household.
    •UK entrants only.
    We’ll be popping messages through to the lucky winners so watch your DM inboxes!

    Luckily there is a little cross to eliminate it!

    The prizes won't be sent out until well after the launch - admin is waiting to see if Sainsburys/Tesco/Asda/Morrisons are selling it for £25 before he buys any copies.....

    Or maybe he got some ordered from that poor ebayer Sy bankrupted....

    Oh it's like that is it.

    wish these comps were just for loyal HUKDERS in some way instead of having to sign up to FOLK like last time,or twitter etc etc-I have no desire to sign up to twitter,facebook,folk or anything else-can we not just have a straight comp for hukd users,entered on hukd?

    well said Barky!! Should be limited to users with say 1000 posts minimum

    Its a promotion to get you to follow their Tweets..............the more people they have signed up the more free advertising they can do and the more business the site (Hotdeals) gets....

    PS Chesso - I don't tweet either - guess I'm going to have to investigate......

    As i'm not likely to get much for christmas can I win top prize please and for my generous disagreements with you this year I deserve of course.

    It would be nice to have a post in this thread to win comp.

    Then have two threads one for regulars and one for lurkers and newbies.

    Nah - just limit it to those with accounts at least 4 years old.....X)

    On a more serious note - every competition has its flaws (though the matchstick one worked well) - relax and enjoy. As long as they don't ask us to get creative......really hate those ones.....

    I expect you are right.
    I have just wandered over there to have a look. I had to google as I couldn't find a link on here. ( Is there a link to the HUKD twitter,normally, straight from HUKD??)
    Twitter looks like a random mess to me.

    yeah all those who have been on the site about ten mins * rolling eyes smiley*

    well, I have no complaints. Good luck to those entering!

    Any chance you can make the banner actually stay away when I close it? I get rid of it with the close button, click on a different page and it's back again. Seems rather pointless having the close button to me.

    Admin

    What are you lot like?! X) We're not forcing you to do anything, you can join in or you don't have to.
    As I've said twice now, if this one's not for you then wait for one of the other comps which will be coming up soon.

    Dangergod, no min followers needed, it won't be beneficial to people to sign up multiple Twitter accounts though b/c of the way the promotion itself is going to work so that's absolutely fine.


    Imafish2002 we had problems with the bar disappearing, we're now having the opposite issue but our Dev Monkies are working on it. Expect a fix sometime next year (_;)

    The banner is gone for me as well. That means that only 25, or so, of us willl ever know about the comp!
