Gun Owners of Canada, will only supply the product for giveaway, we will not supply you bail money for creeping out your neighbour

These contests seem to be needlessly complicated........would it not be easier just to have anyone that has made say 20 posts ( or whatever required number ) to GOC in the past month automatically entered in the draw . Any website needs members making posts to keep the site interesting.......so the contests should be set up to encourage people to make posts so as to keep the site viable , and draw in more members......

10-02-2014, 06:28 AM
The contests are part promotion and giveaway.
We are a company and we do make money off advertisement. This for get everyone a fair chance to win something.

Sorry as stated before it's not changing anytime soon and if you complain your welcome to pony up the cash to do your own contest.
Gun Owners of Canada is doing this to try to give back to the community. Complaining about how we do it only makes us not want to.

And what's complicated about going to a firearms website looking around and finding some info from it. We all troll these sites daily anyways.

10-02-2014, 06:36 AM
I was actually just trying to think of a way to encourage members to make more posts or threads.....I thought maybe the contests could be used as an incentive for people to post more content so as to draw in a greater membership....just a suggestion is all.....

10-02-2014, 06:48 AM
Check our previous contests starting in 2012. We tried may different avenues for giveaways that didn't work out.
This method has worked the best for all those involved

Is there some way to verify that an entry is valid after submission?

I generally don't enter these contests because for the effort required I have no way of knowing if the entry is valid. And try again and you're DQ'd with no notice.

I'm not complaining that it's too complicated - its just that there's no relevant feedback. I get enough of that level of thanks for work done at my job. LOL

11-01-2014, 08:12 AM
After you enter it will redirect you to another page saying that your entry has been received.

11-02-2014, 06:21 AM
