Date of FreeVPS Monthly GiveAway - 15th of the month?
#1
It's a human Pavlov reflex after all of the months of having had the FreeVPS Giveaway Competition religiously on the 15th, to be focused on the date of 15th for the monthly giveaways.  It's so much of an institution that it's become a rule of a kind as well - as per the FAQs:

November is the second month that the 15th deadline was missed - it's almost the 18th where I live and we still don't know when the Giveaway is going to be. If the date of the 15th is still the Giveaway posting date, and is being missed for any number of good reasons, could members of FreeVPS be brought up to date on the 15th with the expected date when the Giveaway will start?  A suggestion could be to open the Giveaway Announcement thread on the 15th of the month as scheduled and if the listing of VPSs is not ready yet, to inform members when the VPSs will be listed in the OP.  This in effect will become the revised competition date for the month.  That way all of us will have equal and fair access to the monthly giveaway date.

I'm sorry. I meant to post the thread this past weekend, but I missed the chance. I will post it by noon tomorrow (UTC-6).

I tent to try to post the giveaway on the nearest weekend to the 15th, to give people more chances to see it (and to ensure I have time to hand out the VPSes).

Thanks for letting us know @Ignis. Sounds like a good plan. Maybe you could revise the FAQs?

If I may ask - how soon after the posting of the giveaway VPSs do you allocate them? Like if you're planning to do both the posting of the VPSs and hand them out during the same weekend how much time will members have to apply for a VPS?

First off, let me just say this:

We are all human, if we don't get to a giveaway on time, we will get to it. Members will have enough time to see the giveaway, Like if a giveaway was posted on a Sunday, the VPS's should be handed out by Monday and everything should be done by Tuesday.

I hope this clears things up.
Thanks For the VPS 18 FreeVPS.

There's no set rule. I post the end date of the first round in the post when I make it, and I will admit the end date can vary massively as per what time is convenient for me.


One other thing I want to get squared away. I'm not Chris. I'm not HR. Although I look to them as role models, I don't expect to follow their methods exactly.

A fixed date would be awesome, People can work on getting needed posts and improving their score whenever they feel the giveaway date is nearing.

I think this should be considered as a fun exercise for all of us. we are here to mix and mingle and share and get some freebies too. They are doing it for free. Just out of their love and care for the community. I am thankful to the staff and the sponsors.

It is not a job and we should not expect so much. They are all humans.

I know we have to do our posts before a fixed date and that is really really fixed. But then we get something in return. They are spending so much time and effort and they dont even grab some servers from the best ones which would be totally acceptable in return for their service.
Many thanks to Freevps, Chris (cw1998), The Guy( ID 4810), optimus, GHP and the other  staff members.
