If you haven't signed up for it yet, what are you waiting for? Join over one thousand entrants for your chance to win up to $100 worth of free stuff! All you have to do is register at our forums and enter your user information on our giveaway page.

For those that have registered, be sure to check back on April 15 to see if you've won - we'll announce the winners here on the homepage and send the winners private messages and emails via our forums. Best of luck to everybody!

Just out of curiosity, how will the winner be determined?

And I don't know if this matters but just in case it does: I'm masteratt from the forums, changed my name but this name didn't change.....So.....I hope there isn't a clash of some kind.

Thanks again for this.

Nah there's no clash, don't worry about it.

The winners will be determined by drawing random numbers and matching them to entrants (each person has a number ID assigned to them already).

Using PHP (web programming language)...it will choose a random number between two others, so for example: rand(1,number of contestants) and boom it spits out a number.

hey dudeman, having an account on the homepage wont work... you need to have an account at our forums (http://www.gtagaming.com/forums). Make sure you can log in there, then use that SAME INFORMATION to register for the giveaway. If it's still not working, let me know and I can enter you in the drawing myself.

Just letting you know, there is NO USER named "dudeman" on our forums.

I would prefer if it was pulling out of a hat, because random numbers on a computer aren't random they use the time to pull the seeded number out of the values.
