EDIT-
!ENTRIES ARE NOW CLOSED. PLEASE DO NOT SEND IN ANY MORE EMAILS!



Just a short notice to say that the draw will take place on the 28th of this month, Sat. It will be made into a little video show available for viewing along with the winners names being listed on the website for those of you who can't watch videos for some reason. Think of it as the NiGHTS lottery lol.

Those of you who haven't entered yet be sure to do so here:
<a href="http://www.nightsintodreams.com/NiD/black/...s/giveaway1.htm" target="_blank">http://www.nightsintodreams.com/NiD/black/...s/giveaway1.htm</a>

And thanks to the huge amount of people who have already entered :lol: I'm going to have fun writing all these names down on paper D:
I'll contact the winners after the draw to let them know they've won and to get their postal sending stuff adress. Note- It's ok to have the item sent to a relatives house or someone you know as long as you TELL THEM (and that you can collect it) XD; You have my complete 100% honor that i will not do anything dubious with either your email or postal details.


Good luck guys ^^

Considering i have no idea how to do streaming video that'll be a no. DiGi wants to do a flashy looking recorded show, so i will let him play with his bells and whistles.

Welll, I can't exactly help that fact, iLLViLLAiN. It's a Mac, therefore it has an internal modem, therefore the entire console IS the monitor.

Quoth the Raven, "Nevermore."

'Tis a Mac and nothing more.

Damn the year 2000 and it's place in the timeline of being eight years ago and therefore being an old piece of crap! My grandpa buys a whole new computer every year. He better get me a laptop for my birthday or I'm beating this computer with a stick until it breaks.

Frofrofro! Been there, done that. I had to write down raffle names for a thing in middle school once...me and my friend split the work in half, but I still had about 900 to do! XD It was so annoying, I can STILL remember it!

You would hate doing that for my school. We've got names like "Shaniqua" and "Ebuka". We've got long names that are so unpronouncable that the teachers give them nicknames. One kid in one of my classes, right? He's got a name that's like, seven or eight syllables long. The teacher calls him Kevin. Or Kenny. Or some name like that.

I know I'm totally not going to win so I'll just sit back and watch the show.

I haven't won anything worthwhile since the first grade.

I'll be going into the 11th grade in September.

Yes. I am an unlucky loser, but hey! Life is good anyway. I'll sit back and watch the show, and if I win, bonus. If I don't, well then kudos to whoever did. *goofy thumbs up*

BTW, I hope this video like, isn't going to be live. My computer + Live video streams = Bad.

This is so exciting! It is the prize draw of the century in gaming! How much would it take to make the drawing go my way... :D j/k. I would want someone kicked out of the competition if they tried bribery! ... Ooh, maybe this could be like the first video podcast of DreamCast!

With the amount of enteries that have come in this may take slightly longer than expected. Today i have to put all the enteries into each catagory then we have to film it all and then i have to edit it and then finaly you'll see the video. I don't know how long it is going to take but if it's going to be sometime today then it will be later on tonight. If we slip tonight then most definitely tomorrow, for sure.

I'm gonna work as fast as i can on this as i have a lot to get through today. Gonna be tough. XD;

Once again, good luck to everybody that entered.
And if we pronounce your name wrong then "oh well", my bad.

...well... in true Turkish luck i've come across a major f*!*ing problem that's caused yet ANOTHER famous set back here at NiD.com.

We held the draw yesterday and recorded it live. Nothing was planned. We put the names into the NiGHTS hat, drew the names, announced them and all the while the camcorder was recording it. We finished drawing the winners names from the hat and then watched it back on the camcorder to see if everything was recorded properly. Thankfully it was.

We tidied up the recording area, put all the items used in the recording back into storage and this morning i go to start editing the footage so we could have this video up by tonight, just as i said i would try and do. I was prepaired to work all day on this thing and have it ready by tonight for sure.
Well, that's not happening now.

For some UNKNOWN STUPID REASON my sh!t camcorder messes up the footage and screws it two days from Sunday whenever i transfer it from the camcorder to the computer. It's fine on the camcorder but when i transfer to the comp it chops and cuts and slices and glitches the unholy hell out of it leaving me with the mightiest of pains in my side to work with. It has NEVER done this before on any occasion where i've had to record something and edit it on the computer but the one time we decide to host a competition it gets rawly raped.

As of now i'm in a really pissed off mood about it all because we worked out arses off yesterday to get this done and it's amounted to nothing but screwed footage thanks to JVC's amazing brand of HD camcorders. Wankers.

The winners have been chosen now and to re-shoot the footage means having to start everything over from scratch. Again. And i'm not about to do that.

So, i've given up on the video because i'm annoyed beyond belief at how this just happens to sh!t on my head at the very last second.
So f*** it.
TRiPPY says she might have a try at editing the video so good luck to her.

As of now we may have to result in doing a podcast show instead where we read out the names of the winners rather than give you the TV GameShow style video that we had promised you.

Once again, sorry for this delay. The mood here at NiD.com just took a nosedive.
We'll be right back as soon as we figure out just what the hell to do.

I like this forum, it's a good forum.

Well, worse things could've happened. The camcorder could've fried and set your whole house on fire and no one here would like that('cuz everyone loves you guys). So I say be thankful you're not standing in a heap of ashes. And we forgive your camcorder.

Mweh, I didn't even enter (on purpose; I'd rather not have any NiGHTS merch at all than end up having it somehow ruined/lost in the screaming vortex of my room) and I feel a little sad that there's not gonna be awesometastic video-things (which I probably won't be able to see anyway, since I can't see any of the videos in the videos section that don't have a youtube link).

It's understandable, though; this was beyond your control. I wish I knew enough to offer educated suggestions, but I know you guys know more stuff about this than I do.

..... I still wonder if the program on the computer for the video-things is compatible with the camcorder, though, but you've probably checked that. ^^;;;; ..... And now I'm thinking 'conflicting file types' and I don't know why. 0-0;;;
