Ask people to draw an AC3 poster using MS Paint for fun then draw a random number to determine the winner.

use random.org and make the join date only those people who have been a member of Neowin for longer than a year

Its not fair to penalise people who are members for years but don't post, many people do not like to post lots on forums and prefer to lurk

You're right it is.

10+ years then. Seems fair. :laugh:

should be 11+ years and have exactly 5,641 posts :)

On Topic ...

I have done these things before, I stipulate a mimum 50 posts with a member status of more than a month or so, and use http://www.random.org/integers/ with a number between 2 and the last post number before you do the draw. All seems fair then, and include a screen grab of the random.org result to verify.

You can ask people to post... then use a site like random.org to determine which number wins :D

Just do this and forget about a minimum post count or number of years, people say that so they will have a better chance of winning.

I agree with the posting in a thread (with restrictions, that is) and using random.org to select the winner, it's how I gave away my NS2 copy (and likely how I will give away anything else that I have to give away).

To give it to the first person who say that he doesn't want it !

I really really don't want it :)

Well if you go the random.org route, here is my entry, as I would really love it.
Or, you could give it to the first Veteran who posts in the thread, since they were once a staff member who was actually tasked with just the Gamers Hangout and who now participates in a weekly podcast that is recorded just for your listening pleasure.

Yeah, I'm with the rest... random number guessing.

By the way: I'm not in, as that's one of those games I want a retail copy of, so it'd better be given to someone who doesn't want or need the boxed version!

Good luck to everyone! :)
