Thumb drive drawing

Posted 09 May 2012 - 02:21 PM

On the right hand side of the site there is a link to a thumb drive drawing. When you click on the link, it takes you to a thread regarding the drawing. The last post on the thread says that the drawing is no longer happening.

1 of 2 things should happen:

A.) There needs to be clarification that the drawing IS still going on.

B.) The 2GB thumb drive contest link should be removed.

C.) You should check that link before you submit the snippet :)

(a drawing for a thumb drive seems a little silly these days... I think they're giving them away in cereal boxes now)

I choked on a 4gb thumb drive the other day while having my lucky charms...

This has absolutely nothing to do with what I said.

It seems misleading to have a link to a contest that ended a year ago on the front page, especially if it's sitting directly on top of the kudos list.

Instead of being a smartass, just use your head for a second. There's no reason for this to be on here.

atraub, the moderation/administration teams recognize this. We just need to get the template changed, which is on the list of stuff to do.

You clearly have no idea how much thought goes into effective smartassery.*

And besides, I have nothing to say about the layout of the site. Smartassery is my bailiwick. That, and giving good advice to the befuddled.

EDIT: *That is, I used my head for exactly one second. :)

Thanks Dogstopper, I also noticed this at the bottom of the snippet pages.
