To take part in the raffle,

Sponsors

Have you ever noticed how cool vendors we have in this community? Let me introduce the sponsors of this giveaway, offering some awesome prizes:

For Sponsors

Sponsors offering prizes for KBD.news subscribers/followers will be promoted with the shop's name and website during November.

For early joiners this means mentions in 4 KBD issues, 4 newsletters, 4 editorial write-ups and in posts on X/Twitter.

Also, more than 100.000 unique visitors will see this on kbd.news.

Please, email your offer to the address: info at golem.hu. I'll need:

  • name of item(s)
  • region you would like to send the prize(s) to
  • estimated value

No need to ship anything to me. The best way is probably if you could offer a coupon code / gift card code which I can send to a winner in your region.

If it's a physical prize, please offer only in-stock items.

Thanks in advance.

Raffle Method

I will list all the names in random order by executing "SELECT * FROM users ORDER BY RAND()" (pseudocode) - say - 5 times. The 5th run will produce the final list.

To minimize shipping fees, customs and taxes, prizes will be paired with winners based on the country/region of followers and sponsors.

I.e. if the first winner is from the EU, he/she will win the first prize offered by an EU-based vendor on his/her preference list (provided in the application form). If the second winner comes from the UK, he/she gets the first prize of his/her choice offered by a UK vendor.


Announcing & Contacting the Winners

The anniversary is on Nov 20. I will do the raffle, and winners will be contacted directly per email.

Winners who fail to respond in 24 hours may be replaced by runner-ups (I will try to consider your time zone though).

Depending on the prize, I will send the coupon/gift code to the winner, send the shipping details to the sponsor, or connect the winner and the sponsor per email if needed so you can work out some details (choosing deskmat design, etc.).

For transparency, winners will be publicly announced on this page.


Disclaimer

I personally don't own the prizes, they won't be at my disposal, nor will I ship anything. I only organize the event, manage the raffle and broker the info between winners and sponsors.

I have to work out some details yet, rules may change so I will keep updating this page.

Cheers,
Tamas Dovenyi info at golem dot hu
