This giveaway is just a test and no prizes are available, however you can enter the giveaway so that we may test the new system.

Wow this is so much better than the previous system. Thanks for the upgrade, Jack! :)
Thanks @Paul Lee ! We're still doing a few tests before we can actually use this new system but everything seems to be ok. Our next giveaway most likely will be run through this new system.

Here is how the list with all the giveaways looks: MalwareTips Giveaways

Please do keep in mind that the current giveaways are not real, there are no prizes as we just want to test the system.

I like it..but not sure how will you verify share details, as there has to be a link posted for social share.
Hey @grrr,
If the giveaway rules ask for a social share, then members will share the giveaway and if they win, they will send the link with the share to the staff via a private message.

Here is a summary of the advantages of the new system:

1. Click to Enter - Unlike the previous system there won't be a need to link to your computer configuration or other threads, that's because the staff can now set different criterias before members can enter the giveaway. Basically, members will just need to share giveaway (this is what most antivirus companies ask us to setup a giveaway), accept the terms and click Enter giveaway. No other actions is needed (post in threads..)

If you don't meet the criterias to join the giveaway, you won't see the the "Enter giveaway" button and you'll need to check the Giveaway rules.

2. Clear and detailed information - This new giveaway system makes it easy for everyone to know what's the status of the giveaway (Open, Drawn, Closed), Start, End and Draw date, number of license keys and who has entered. Also to be noted that above the "I agree to terms" box, there's a "Share" section to make it easier to share the giveaway.

3. Giveaway System is Automated - Unlike the previous system which required the staff to drawn the winners and contact them, this new system will automatically (randomly) draw the winners at the Draw date and time, and post them on the giveaway page. The Giveaway system will also send the winners a PM to let them know that they have won.

Also, the MalwareTips Giveaways forum (will be used for discussions about the product/giveaway) now has two sub-forums that lead to "Active Giveaways" and "Closed Giveaways". As the title says, Active Giveaways are giveaways that are open and members can join, while Closed Giveaways are giveaways that have ended but contain useful information like the Winners and who has entered.

When creating a giveaway, in MalwareTips Giveaways forum we will post a thread that announces the giveaway and in this thread members can also discuss about the product or giveaway.
