i think i will stick with my windows XP. im not gullible enough to waste time twitting

You probably use cassette tapes too.

I don't Tweet and I don't Facebook. Don't care for putting anything personal out for public view. I have nothing to hide, just don't care for that type of socializing.

ok i am so out of here. I don't even know what twitter really is for even though I have an account there and has been 'following' few people. All I know is to read their status

lol...this is one contest i would love to join but have to decline since i don't tweet...
(i don't have a facebook/tweeter account...)

Guess us non-tweeters are out of luck. It's a shame that Neowin has chosen this route and excluded a lot of us. When you see me on twitter, look outside.... Hell has frozen over!

Really though, couldn't you just make a twitter account and only use it for competitions like this? You're not forced to "tweet" or follow anyone or even go on the site at all..! It's not that much effort if you care about the competitions so much.

Absolutely not. You should not be required to "join" any third party website / service just to participate in a contest on any website. Not sure how or why Neowin is connected to Twitter but I don't see how giving out my information to Twitter benefits them. Neowin has the right to write their rules about contests they sponsor but I think it's a poor decision to do so. Just my opinion, hence, I won't be entering any contest that requires Twitter. (from anyone!)

don't use twitter,these things should not be limited to just twitter, it would be more fair.
Yeah, I feel the same. If they wanna give twitter users an extra chance, great, but don't exclude everyone else ^^.

Win7 for free. A contest you see. Tweet this code - #neowin7 Follow this tweeter - @NeowinFeed Hope beyond hope. Accept 7 windows if win.

I won! I replied several days ago. A few hours after the PM to be exact. So I guess I should announce it my self then!


Congrats! Were you randomly selected or did you actually guess it?

Hi,

You were the winner as you guessed "goodie bag" which is the closest answer. It's 2x Neowin goodie bags with Windows 7 goodies. We need you to reply within 3 days with your contact information and address so we can ship the items. Please note that any import taxes imposed by your country are payable by yourself.

Thank you

Ugh another Twitter only campaign.

What did you expect? Here on Neowin, deleting a facebook account is a milestone.

Sure is a fanboy community...

Well, they are giving away FREE things. Lets not bite the hand that is giving the gifts. Hell, I'm certain you can complete that in 20 minute if you really wanted to enter.

Once again, proof that nothing in this world is 'free'. The price (joining twitter) is too high for me.

As much as I want Windows 7 I'd rather be burned alive than join the popularity contest known as Twitter.


Hopefully Neowin will open its future contests up to those who aren't subscribed to a specific third party social network.

So you're gonna join the popularity contest known as the people who don't join twitter?

The past two contests, if I recall correctly, were done within the site.

Neowin has its own website, is it not suitable for holding a contest?

If you scroll up you'll see I'm far from the first complainer but thanks for singling me out anyway.

You know you could just sign up to twitter and... not "enter the popularity contest". Why can't you just make an account and only use it to enter contests like this, that's all I use mine for since a lot of sites seem to do competitions on twitter now.

Consider that part of the reason Neowin holds contests is to reward its existing membership as well as attract new visitors to the site.

I've already had Windows 7 Pro installed on my rig since release, but I'd love to win this to give to my girlfriend to update her Vista machine.
