Hammy
Your quite greedy arnt you... Correct me if im wrong, but the left over 325 frih$'s gets lost in your own pocket yeh?
einstein
yes, u r right. but if i get enough, i may try and continue the Daily Guess A Number Game.....with some help, of course. Wink
hyhy
Good luck with getting participants, i think noone is so stupid to give you free cash.
einstein
OK. i have reduced the fee to 55FRIH$. at least, think about the prize: 250 FRIH$. that's a lot. and also, i am going to carry on your favourite game once this is over, aren't i??? so why do you hesitate??? otherwise, i have no problem, but we are going to miss the Daily Guess A Number Game, if we don't try to reinstate it!!! Sad
einstein
well, if you still feel that the fee is too high, pls tell me. but for that i will have to reduce the prize too. Razz just tell me, so that i can know at least!!!
Ghost Rider103
Im sure you will get 10 spots if you reduce it to 20 FRIH$ but I wont join for anything over 20.
Vanquish
I'll get myself a nice desktop, then i'll enter.

He is absolutely right, no one is so stupid to enter here.

Make the Entry Fee low Then Definitely people will enter here.
einstein
oh, well, it was for good only, wasn't it. still, never mind.........................................i have reduced the entering fee to 20FRIH$

Arrow First Prize: 90 FRIH$
Arrow Second Prize: 60FRIH$

hmm, still a little pricey, how about 10 FRIH$? 10 FRIH$ sound good to everyone else? Sounds good to me. Yeah, I wont settel for anything more than 10 FRIH$

Look at it this way man, if you reduce it to 10 FRIH$ for an entry, you still come out with 50 FRIH$ that go to you.
einstein
if i reduce it to 10FRIH$, i will go into a loss!!! sorry, if you want to join, then join, otherwise pls refrain from telling me to reduce the price, cos i am not goin to!!! i will have to reduce the prize too, if i reduce the fee, and that won't be nice, cos 90FRIH$ are a nice!!! look at it this way..........................if you win, u get 90 and 60 FRIH$!!!

Thats why he is called Einstein!

@Einstein

I think the price is fair since it's the equivalent of 4 Lotto Tickets, But the problem is the contest will probably be based on Popularity? Right?

If so, 20 FRIH$ is a bit outrageous in that case because those who will win will be those who have alot of friends!

maybe you should make the contest fairer and maybe alot more will join. I'll consider joining if you explain the contest in a Better Context! Laughing Smile
mistuh griddlez
I might as well.....just to encourage you! (I think the price is fair...i mean what are FRIH$ really worth? plus if you spend them it makes you have to post more making bondings happy! don't you want to make bondings happy? Very Happy ) But anyways I'll be the first to join and post my desktop as soon as I upload it.

Edit:

Here Is the image url:

pelin
i will enter too.I dont know why you guys make such a big problem with that entering price.Why do you need frih$ anyway.All you guys have so many frih$ and for what.What are you going to do with those frih$ ? buy a new car ????.It is just pointless.So here is my desktop :

It is nothing special but just for contest
einstein
well, till now, pelin has the best one!!! actually, there are only two participants, so i will be needing more to decide...................after all, as pelin said.....................wat do you all need the FRIH$ for??? at least, i will be starting the Daily Guess a Number Game with the FRIH$ i get!!! u don't even do that!! so, hurry up, and apply.............. Very Happy
Hammy
hm.. well i think its pritty unfair that you've already judged them two entries and told us who the winner is out of them two. It must feel like a waste of 20 frih$'s for griddlez to send u his frih$'s then be told his entry is gonna lose already.
einstein
i never told that!!!! i just told that from the two, the winner is pelin......................BTW, u can send multiple entries, though the last one will be counted!!!
pelin
i just wonder why no one wants to enter this competition ? are 20 frih$ that much
Helios
Yep. 20 Frih$ is A ******' LOT comapred to the prizes...

Well i use a lot of customization programs like CursorXP and ObjectDesktopX(widgets and widget desktops). I love windows blinds which i think is a great way to enjoy computing a lot more through beautiful skins which of course are free on places like wincustomize.com . So just check things out and have fun.
einstein
hey, doesn't anyone else want to participate??? come on, its just 20 FRIH$ !!! i need only 4 more people.
ocalhoun
You might have to make due with what you've got...
einstein
OK, since nobody is interested to participate, well here are the results:

Winner: DeFwh (100 FRIH$)
Runner up: Ocalhoun and Pelin (70 FRIH$ each)
congrats all of you. Very Happy

Well, i have lost 120 FRIH$ in this since many didn't participate, but still, i enjoyed holding the contest, and hope that the next time, i would get 10 participants!!!

OK then, let's start the Who has the Best Desktop Contest #2. Very Happy
ocalhoun
You're really going to try this again despite the low participation?
Perhaps you could do something different.
einstein
well, i'll try this for this month atleast, and still, if i don't get 10 participants, then i'll have to close it!!! Crying or Very sad
saiyeek

saskshadowplayers
Well here's my desktop:



I like to keep it simple and clean. It's obviously very Vista inspired (I like the look) with a few extra things that I just love. Oh and I made the background myself while messing around in photoshop earlier... so it's an original! Hope you guys like it!
einstein
hey, thanx for that!!! BTW, if i don't get all 10 people here, then i'll return your FRIH$ saskshadowplayers!!!
