Giveaway Rules

I'm thinking about doing a giveaway of one of my upcoming Instructables. I want to give away an origami model to a randomly selected user but I was wondering if there were any rules about this. I would prefer to give the item or items away to one of my followers so I could reward them and encourage more people to subscribe too. Is that sort of thing allowed? I'm also wondering if I can run the same sort of thing with memberships, I have a lot of codes and I would love to reward my followers/entice new ones but I'm more doubtful that this is allowed.  I searched the Legal stuff and didn't see anything about this but that doesn't mean it's not in there. Any insight or actual staff answers would be greatly appreciated, thanks.  More detail about my idea:  I would run the giveaway for a set time like a week or two and post on the Instructable that all current followers are eligible to win as long as they are subscribed to me by the deadline and until the winner(s) is/are chosen (which would be asap). They would also have to comment on the Instructable that they would like to be entered in the giveaway so that I know who to include in the drawing.  To choose the winner I would use a random number generator to assign numbers to each of the users who are following me and leave a comment and then use the random number generator to choose the actual winner. Another option is to just write all the names down on little pieces of paper, mix up, and blindly choose one. I'll do whichever option is the easiest but I definitely want it to be as close to random as possible.  I will mail the prize via USPS normal letter mail so I will have to ask for the mailing address of the selected winner or winners but I will not store their address or anything like that, it's only to mail the prize. I don't want to spend more than the price of a stamp so I might have to limit it to US entrants only :( but I'll look into this.  I would of course also include most of what I said here so that the requirements and selection process are clear.

Book Giveaway

Two of my designs were featured in a very cool new book, PlyDesign, 73 Distinctive DIY Projects in Plywood by Philip Schmidt (and published by Storey Publishing). To celebrate (and to thank the instructables community -- without whom these projects would never have been "discovered") I'm giving away a copy.... but to make it interesting, this giveaway will be in the form of an informal contest. Post a comment with a link to your instructable. As long as your project includes plywood (or other sheet goods such as MDF, plyboo, etc) it qualifies. No publishing date restrictions, you can submit any instructable from the very first day instructables went live up to today -- however, choose your favorite instructable, because I will only consider one per person. The contest will close whenever I have 100 entries or on July 31st, 2012, whichever comes first. I will also be giving away a three month pro membership to my favorite instructable submitted by a non-pro member. I look forward to checking out your instructables! UPDATE: Member Makendo has offered another year membership for an instructable by a non-pro! So far I have no comments/instructables by non pros. Show me what you've made and you've got a very good chance at getting a year's worth of free pro membership...

Great Pro Account Giveaway!

I have, so far, published 179  instructables, many of which have been featured, and I have also been lucky enough to win a few contest prizes. This means I have accumulated Pro codes. A lot of Pro codes. To be honest, it would take a genuine medical revolution for me to live long enough to be able to use them all, so I want to spread the joy. But, you have to earn them. All you have to do is post one of four things in the comments: A photo or video of something you made by following one of my instructables.  A photo or video of something you made that was (however vaguely) inspired by one of my instructables. A link to an instructable of your own that you are kind of embarrassed about publishing, but can't really bring yourself to delete. A photo of an instructable-related image you have spotted "in the wild" - say, an instructables shirt on a passing stranger, or you meet a dog-owner with their dog's back legs in a home-made wheelchair. The ones I like (and I'm often easily pleased) will be sent a code to unlock a 3 month Pro account. If I'm really impressed, I will send a code for a full year's Pro. This contest is open to absolutely anybody, anywhere, with no deadline (except for the natural deadline of running out of codes), and only one real rule: don't be greedy. If you are already Pro, you can also nominate somebody else to receive the Pro code, or just pass it along to them yourself. Feel free, as well, to share this topic with your friends you wish would join the site. (What does turning Pro actually get you?) A word of warning: if you do not use your code quickly, I may accidentally give the same code to somebody else, and if they use it first, you're kind of stuck...

Upcoming Sugru Contest Giveaways

*************************************************** We have no more Sugru to give out. Thank you everyone who requested some I'm looking forward to seeing all of your projects! *************************************************** We've been spending some time recently chatting with the great people over at Sugru, trying to figure out a good contest to run.  However, in talking it over with them, we have come to realize that if we launch a Sugru contest, everyone would have to buy Sugru in order to enter it.  No one was fans of this idea, and so we came up with am alternate plan. Before running the contest, they would ship us a box full of Sugru Smart Hacks Super Packs for us to send out to selected authors. We've already given out these packs to a number of authors as a way of saying thank you for the amazing projects they've submitted, but we still have some left.  So, here's where you come in!  We want to offer these to anyone who wants to create a project using this awesome material! This is first come, first serve.  We have under thirty packs to give out, so they might go quick.  I'll update this post if and when supplies start running out or are gone. Our only request of you is that you use what we send you to make something awesome and enter that something awesome into the Sugru contest when it finally does launch.  Of course, entering the contest will also make you eligible for a number of other prizes. So let me know in the comments if you would like one, and I'll send you a prize notification that you'll need to fill out.  Best of luck, and happy creating! Current Count: 000

Ornament Patch Giveaway: Give Thanks

UPDATE: Giveaway is closed! Thanks to all who posted here. Everyone is of course free to post more comments here, but no more patches will be given out. The cool thing about Instructables is how so many people share their knowledge and ideas so freely with everyone else. This can be with an Instructable, a forum post, a comment, or any other interaction here. When someone does something that makes your life better or more fun it's truly a gift. So... Post a new comment thanking a member of Instructables and get a patch. You can say why you're thanking the other member or not. That's entirely up to you. Pictures are also optional. Giveaway ends at 12pm PST, December 24! Get it in by then to get a patch. This is the last ornament giveaway. Happy Holidays, everyone.
