It's incredible that people would enter and then just not look. But in all fairness, Gigabyte should have also just messaged these people through the Facebook messaging system.

I scored a Coolink 120mm fan and TIM because someone didn't check into a contest. It would suck if there was an extenuating circumstance why you couldn't check. Sickness, personal issues, etc.

You went through a rough time so let me kick you when you're down by yanking away your gear.

I suppose they figured that with all of the Facebook zombies out there they wouldn't run into this.

I know, it's amazing how many people enter a contest and then forget to come back to see if they won or not.

Gigabyte seems to be a big fan of Facebook contests lately. The company has another going on that offers the chance to win a nice HD 5870 card among other things.

Taipei, Taiwan, April 8, 2010 - GIGABYTE, a leading manufacturer of motherboards and graphics cards, announces the launch of the second wave Facebook campaign, GIGABYTE VGA 2000 SWEEPSTAKES. The campaign is to continue increasing the number of fans on our Facebook fan page where GIGABYTE provides the latest information and interact with fans. Just “become a fan” and you will have a chance to win great prizes. Invite your friends and family to follow us on Facebook to receive more information and win big.

This icon image is derived from graphics card fan where the zeroes of “2000” denote ventilators of graphics card. The “2000-fan” on the graphics card indicates our goal to reach 2000 fans on GIGABYTE VGA Facebook page.

The rule of GIGABYTE VGA 2,000 SWEEPSTAKES is very simple. Leave a comment and tag our icon with your name to join prize drawing. We will give away prizes for every 200 fans joined. There are over 1000 fans currently, so we will do a random drawing for two prizes of luxury mouse M7800S when we reach 1200 and 1400 fans, two gaming mice M8000X and mouse pads when we reach 1600 and 1800 fans, and one graphics card GV-R587SO-1GD when we reach 2000 fans. We will announce winners on our Facebook fan page, so please check back regularly to see if you win. Winners must email to [email protected] within 14 days of announcement to claim the prize.
