Take the SitePoint Reader Survey and Win One of Four Cool Prizes!By Rachael Wilson
We at SitePoint HQ want your input on how we can improve sitepoint.com—and we’re prepared to bribe you with a bunch of great prizes (each to the value of approximately US $1,000) to get it!
Read below to learn why we’re running the survey, what the terms and conditions are, and what you could win. When you’re ready, go ahead and take the survey!
Four Incredible Prizes—Which One is YOURS?
No matter what your pleasure, we’ve got you covered!
- For the designer, we’ve got a new Wacom Intuos4 tablet. This amazing device amplifies the range of design tools at your disposal, letting you unleash your inner Picasso. Weighing in at less than 4lbs, with an 8” x 13” active area, it’s big, it’s black, and it could be yours to keep!
- For the gamer in you, we’ve got a brand spanking new Nintendo Wii. Take a break from design and development and indulge in some playtime, with the latest in virtual console entertainment. As well as the console, we’ll also throw in some games and accessories to the value of US $1, 000.
- If you still don’t have one, and you want to see if the hype is true (and it totally is) we’ve got a fresh out-of-the-box unlocked iPhone 3GS (and a few accessories) to the value of US $1,000.
- Sometimes it’s better to give than to receive. If lending a helping hand to those in need sounds more like your cup of tea, then we’re very proud to be offering a donation to the value of US $1,000 to the charity of your choice. Just tell us where to send it, and feel the karma love!
To be in the running to take your pick of the above-mentioned prizes, all you have to do is fill out our survey (you must answer every question). It should take no longer than five minutes of your time.
What Is This Survey For?
We’ll be using the results of this survey for two things:
- To shape sitepoint.com into the site that YOU want it to be
- To gather data that we can use to bring more relevant advertisers to the site
Do I Have To Be In The USA To Be Eligible To Win?
No! Readers in other countries are encouraged to complete the survey, and are also eligible to win! If for some reason we are unable to ship your prize (e.g. shipping difficulties), or it’s not available for use or purchase in your country, then you will receive an Amazon gift voucher of equal value.
How we are selecting the winner
There will be one winner, who will be selected entirely at random. The email address of everyone who completes the survey will be placed in a spreadsheet, sorted alphabetically. We’ll then use the Random Integer Generator generate the row number in the spreadsheet that will correspond to the winner.
We’ll inform the lucky winner on Monday, October 19th, 2009, and their details will be announced on Wednesday, October 21st.
Good luck everyone!
