K-1 Giveaway Announcements

I am creating a single thread on our K-1 giveaway in order to make it easier to find important announcements and information. Any changes to giveaway rules or procedures will be posted here.

We will give away a Pentax K-1 in July, once we reach 40,000 total posts on the forum (per the "thermometer" at the top of each page, or roughly when the total post count on the homepage reaches 4,224,000). The cutoff for this post count will be 11:59:59pm UTC-8 on July 31st, 2018.

Once we reach the post count requirement, I will create four raffle threads in the Pentax Forums Giveaways section. These threads will open at 5am, 11am, 5pm and 11pm UTC. Each thread will accept up to 75 replies, each of which will be a raffle entry. Our system will attempt to automatically enforce this limit and any post beyond the 75th in any of these threads will not be considered a raffle entry.

After all raffle entries are claimed, I will pick a random number n between 1 and 300, and our winner will be the holder of the nth raffle entry.

There are some additional requirements for users to be able to post in the raffle threads:
  • You must have at least 10 posts on the forum in July, prior to the creation of the raffle threads
  • Your account must be registered at least 24h prior to the creation of the raffle threads
  • You are not eligible if you've previously won a camera through this giveaway

I have been alerted about inconsistent post sorting in the raffle threads for certain users. This has now been corrected, so the order of posts submitted at the same exact second will now be consistent for everyone.

This was just a display issue and wouldn't have affected the results of the first iteration of the giveaway.
