Default Techgage's 5th Birthday Contest

Welp, we've done it. Techgage has officially turned 5, and believe it or not, it only took us five years to pull off! Things have sure changed since we first launched, but for the most part, it's all for the better. The industry is as exciting as could be, and the products are likewise captivating and interesting.

If you were to look at 2010 five years ago, you'd likely be wrong about some of your assumptions. Technology is somewhat unpredictable, and we're accelerating at an unbelievable pace. It's truly exciting to simply picture what the entire tech landscape will be like in 2015, and as long as I don't suddenly get completely fit and become a footy star, you can bet we'll still be here that year delivering the latest tech news.

Hitting a five-year landmark of any sort is a big deal, so it seems fitting that we celebrate by giving you the chance to win one heck of a sweet gaming rig. Sound good to you? If so, all you need to do is go take a site survey we've put together. It consists of 20 or so questions, all of which will greatly help us progress our site further. Although we have a good idea of what you like to see, nothing beats getting direct input so that we can make Techgage as good as can be.

So if you want to both help the site and have a chance at winning a sweet gaming PC with all the trimmings, head on over to our contest page and take our survey! If you don't feel like taking it right now, you should still sign up in order to receive the e-mail. The contest runs through the month of March.

Good luck to those who enter, and huge thanks for helping us out!



This thread can both be used for reiteration of the rules or for general discussion around it. If you have stumbled on a bug with our survey, please send me the information in a private message as to how it was caused, rather than post about it in this thread.

You can view the contest page here!

*crosses his fingers*

Let's see where we are in another 5 years. Hmm...$40 phase change? AMD in court for anti-trust and Intel calling foul? Steve Jobs-o-tron?

Is it just me who can't see anything on the contest- or frontpage?

All I get is the top and left menu's, and on the right a box with "site contests" but no content...

You are the second person to mention this issue, and we're looking into it. Would you mind Looking at the front page, and viewing the source code and copy/pasting ALL of it to me in a fresh e-mail (rob dot williams at oursite'sdomain.com).

Our survey attracted over 500 entries yesterday, so I know this issue is very concentrated, but still, no one would see this issue at all. Thanks for bringing it up...
