On the last day of each month I will randomly select 1 ticket and that user will win 1 years membership.

1. Make a new facebook account.
2. Spam CC posts
3. Incur zero wrath from real friends on the real account
4. ?????
5. PROBABLE PROFIT!!!


inb4: "you must have >0 FB friends in order to qualify."


If >0 is required, then collude with other CC players by making FB accounts to spam each other and get CC lottery tickets.

p.s.-so glad i don't use facebook... i sense a lot of CC users losing friends as their walls turn to CC spam...

Actually owen, you are correct and this was meant to be a global announcement and not just stickied in GD, I clicked the wrong button :)

When you see someone trying to do something to promote the site, you could try to help instead of trying to tear him down.

There is no number large enough to represent the odds of winning all 6 years. There should be a penalty for claiming you could " Win up to 6 YEARS PREMIUM".

Why the f*ck is this spamy crap on the top of my clans forum page?

This is the sort of shit that would prevent me from renewing my sub. Appreciate the need to advertise, also don't care about the competition but I don't want to see it on top of a 'private' forum.

Guys ... that link at the top of the Forum page is super unobtrusive. Cut them a little slack as they try to attract more members. I don't want to post to FB either, but I understand the motivation to get us to do so. More members is good for all of us. Especially for Hop since he is always looking for new friends.

The system only has two options for announcements. Local announcements that only show up in one forum, or global announcements that show up in all forums. There's no middle ground, there's no option to pick and choose which forums it should go to. It's either one or all.

Given the fact that not everybody goes to GD, where this was originally posted, and the fact that we need to reach as many members as possible, TeeGee decided to send it global. I think it was the right call.

Thanks, Robes! At least somebody understands. We're all in this boat together. Personally, I hate Facebook, but I opened an FB account anyway, and I regularly post CC links. It's just a matter of doing what I can to get some fresh blood into this site and make something happen. We have to get more members in here or there won't be any site left for us to bitch about. One extra thread in your forum, is it a major sacrifice?

While I can agree with this sentiment that this announcement may not belong in your clan's forum, it's the way the site is programmed, as Duk explained.

Therefore the next question is, which improvements are more important to you: taking coding time to reprogram this global feature - assuming they agree to do so - or take coding time to incorporate some of the hundreds of suggestions folks have asked for?

Personally I hate that my clan's forum is several layers/clicks deep now and I'd rather see them fix that back than worry about this link - unless they start making so many global announcements that this section becomes super obtrusive.

It's in the mod forums as well (oh wait, are those a secret?), so don't worry, we aren't excluded either in OUR private forums. However, going back to Duk's point- it's either all or nothing, and all seems like a much better option.

It's one little link that will get out of the way soon enough. I'm sure this has been used at least a few other times in the history of CC with more excess than it is now, whether by accident or intentionally. TeeGee made the right move here, cut him some slack. He wouldn't have done it if it wasn't necessary.

In-site advertising isn't spam and even if you pay premium, you have to put up with it. It would be worse if they put a ticker on the top of the site on all pages announcing news :lol: . Most forum sites do global announcements for competitions and such. Although, I do know some allow you to choose which forums see the announcement but I don't think that's a default choice on phpBB. Really, it's not that annoying, in fact, I didn't notice it in our clan forum at first. I thought that was to be expected that you would have announcements now and then . If you guys actually cared about seeing CC survive so you can play here, you'd not be complaining. :P
