Avatar Image says: I love HP contests! Avatar Image says: ....and I'd like to win one of them. Good luck, all!Avatar Image says: Too bad they always seem to exclude USA territories from entry. *has a mental breakdown* WHYYYYYYYYYY?!!!?!?!Avatar Image says: I've already entered. And as it turns out, I didn't even have to look this one up. I read The Moonstone a few years ago and really enjoyed it, so I knew the authors name. I'd recommend the book, btw.Avatar Image says: Everyone is blatantly going to google that haha.Avatar Image says: Finally something Canadians can participate in. I do, however, need clarification on how many times we can enter as per these two sections of the contest rules...3 times or only once? 9. Limit of three entries per person and per e-mail account. 10. If there is a dispute over the identity of an entrant whose entry was submitted through email, the entrant will be deemed to be the authorized holder of the email address as determined by the organization responsible for administering the submitted email address. If multiple entries are submitted by the same entrant, only the first entry submitted by that entrant will qualify for entry in the Contest; subsequent entries submitted by that entrant shall be disqualified. Is point 10 only for disputed entries? Can anybody clarify?Avatar Image says: Oh please, please, please! I want it! I want it! I want it!Avatar Image says: I believe what they are trying to say is that, if you enter three times with three different answers, they will take the answer you entered first and disquilify the other two. It appears that three e-mails with the same answer will be allowed.Avatar Image says: "Disqualify" . . . sorry . . . Avatar Image says: Will the Collector's Edition include the typographical errors? Avatar Image says: Probably, I'm sure they didn't reprint them. Mine had errors as well.Avatar Image says: Very shoddy for $100. And not worthy of Ms. Rowling. Avatar Image says: We wish it was $ 100.... Now that the collectors editions are all gone from Amazon you can only find it starting from $199, there are people selling it for $400 Why didn't I get one for christmas!? :( Avatar Image says: And what galls me about the elevated prices is that none of that extra money will ever go to the charity for which the initial proceeds were intended. One can be sure that the people selling BTB for $400 will not be donating a dime of it. Profiteering, pure and simple.Avatar Image says: wait so i can enter 3 times with the same email address?? but i better win anyway...and ill have good luck cuz they r announcing the winner a day b4 my birthday!!!Avatar Image says: I'm so happy i already have my own beautiful copy! Good luck to all you leaky-ers!! I hope a real fan wins it and not just someone who is going to sell it!! :)Avatar Image says: Dang... winner has to answer a "skill-testing question" unaided by anything or anyone... and you have to sign an affidavit saying you didn't cheat. I wonder how hard the question is?Avatar Image says: I'm entering. Even though I have the collector's edition already... Finally something we Canadians can enter.Avatar Image says: Wait. Are we talking about the Collector's Edition from Amazon? Errr, why does everyone want to win something they could've bought ages ago?Avatar Image says: what an amazing prize, good luck to all during this rigorous contest!!!Avatar Image says: im really sad!! im not from usa or canada so i cant partiicipate =(Avatar Image says: so how many times can we enter Avatar Image says: "HOW TO WIN 16. The winner will be the one whose name is selected at random from eligible entries and who within seven (7) calendar days after the draw: (a) correctly answers, unaided by any other person, computer or calculator, a mathematical, skill-testing question administered via e-mail; and (b) otherwise complies with these Official Rules. " I didn't read down to this part nor have I ever read a stipulation like this in a contest. Should be the luck of the draw, not a multiple part challenge..... Avatar Image says: wait so if i look up the answer on wikipedia or s/t i cant enter?!?! victoria- i wanna know the same thing...ne1 know?!?!
