kiwiharry: I don't have a facebook account and don't want one. What are the alternative means of entering this draw?


the t&cs of the competition state that you MUST be a slingshot facebook "fan" to enter - so if you have no facebook account then you are out of luck.


Seems kind of typical these days.  It's Facebook or you treated as a pleb..

Now would this be a case for the Human Rights Commission.  Discrimination  against people who don't use Facebook..


Wow. The amount of crying I am subjected to on these forums lately is astounding. 


facebook rants are also becoming a common theme, boring.


Bought shares did you??  Some of us don't wont or need to put our who lives  on Facebook for all the world to see..


Wow..

It is unnecessary to complain about a facebook competition, when you could easily setup a blank facebook page with no information on it.

Wow... Complaining on Geekzone about Facebook competitions not being fair because you don't have a Facebook profile.

What's next?
  • Complaining on Facebook about Geekzone giveways not being fair because you don't have Geekzone account;
  • Complaining about US competitions not being fair because they have a clause saying it's open only to residents in the 50 states and the DC...

Agreed, Guys slingshot not so long ago gave away a ATA this was only exclusive to Geekzone, This time theres a give away and its exclusive to Facebook and I would not be surprised if theres a give away on Twitter soon.

If you don't use Twitter or Facebook then Im sorry you miss out.
Stop complaining about things that are free, Slingshot is not YOUR charity.

No not saying the comp is not fair. If the comp is only for facebook users, then Slingshot should only post the competition on their facebook page. I can't recall seeing the twitter comp being posted here on Geekzone by Slingshot.

Essentially saying target your competition only on the medium for the intended audience.

Dislcosure: I am a Slingshot customer.

That is crazy. I am a slingshot customer and a facebook user and found out about the draw from here. I am pleased that I did.

Not a facebook user, oh well. Either create one or suck it up.

I have a facebook account (which I use one or twice a month) and wouldn't have known about the competition if it hadn't been posted here or over on GP.

I was assuming some people, Slingshot customer or not would be interested in another free giveaway I organised.
