OCULUS VR + TOUCH “RAK” GIVEAWAY 


*** Please read the rules, especially the last one. ***


I am giving away one brand new Oculus VR + Touch + Extended Warranty via direct ship from Amazon.  This is a legitimate personal contest and I have cleared it with Oculus before posting.

I am not an Oculus employee and Oculus is not financially involved with this in any way.  I am solely responsible.  I am not rich,  I just enjoy doing stuff like this from time to time.  I am posting the rules first and then the contest below.  If you don’t read the rules or follow the entry requirements, then your entry(ies) won’t count.  My money, my contest, my rules!  (What a bitch, right?)

If you want to keep track of which entries are valid, I will be using the "awesome" tag for valid entries.  I may "like" or "lol" other entries, but only the "awesome" will tag an entry as valid based on the rules.  Other people using awesome is cool but only mine denotes that your entry is in the running.  Remember, it's not a contest for who is kindest; all valid entries have an equal chance.


Rules:

1)      Entries must follow the instructions below.  If they do not, they won’t count.

2)      All users are free to PM me, but PMs that attempt to persuade me to choose their entry will not work.  If I could afford to buy the whole world an Oculus, I would, but I can’t and this is not a charity so please PLEASE don’t send me messages about how you deserve the prize because you’re poor or some other sad story.  I will feel bad for you and probably cry, but it won’t influence the outcome.

3)      You may enter more than once but each entry must uniquely follow the rules.  Intentional duplication will invalidate all entries.

4)      Only entries posted publicly in this thread count.

5)      Do NOT send me personal info.  Neither I, nor anyone else (nobody else is involved with this) will ask for any personal information.  If anyone messages you asking for it, do NOT give it, it’s not me.

6)      The winner will need to provide a name and shipping address, but do not do so unless I have notified you by PM AND posted that you won in the thread.  If it’s not in the thread that you won and didn’t come from my account, ignore and report it.

7)      If you think this is a fraud/farce I have done this before when Black Desert Online came out.  I gave away like $500 worth of accounts.  You can verify at this link http://forum.blackdesertonline.com/index.php?/topic/11792-angels-bdo-giveaway-conquerors-pack/&page=1 .  I no longer play that anymore, but you can see that it’s legit.  If you read the thread you will also see I took some abuse for it as some people thought it was fake and some people were pissed they didn’t win, but no good deed goes unpunished!

8)      I will be active chatting in the thread because… because I will, you do not have to kiss my butt, it won’t help your chances of winning.

9)      The contest will end on April 1.  Winner will be announced by April 4.

10)   The contest will be extended if necessary until the required number of entries is reached.

11)   The prize and shipping within the USA have no charge and no strings attached.  If you win and live outside the USA you will have to pay for shipping.  Sorry!

12)   The winner will be chosen at random from proper entries.  If you do not win I hope you will at least have had fun participating.

13)   The prize is an Oculus Rift + Touch.  Do not ask me to substitute prizes or cash.  If you don’t want the prize you are free to sell it or give it as a gift.

14)   These rules are subject to addendum if I find I have left out something important.

15)    All RAK's must be new ones, not what you have done in the past.  Past kindness is awesome but new kindness counts as an entry!

 

THE CONTEST!

This is an “RAK” Contest.  RAK = Random Act of Kindness.

In order to enter you will need to do 2 things in each entry.

1)      Post a unique Random Act of Kindness.  By unique I mean that if you enter more than once (you may enter as often as you feel inclined) you must post a different RAK. 

2)      If you are a current Oculus owner you must list your favorite Oculus title or use and why.  If you are not an Oculus owner you must post why you want an Oculus.  If you are entering for a second, third, or greater time post either another title, app, or use OR detail a fun experience you have had gaming with other Oculus users.

I LOVE random acts of kindness.  I try to do one as often as I can.  Now I realize the fact that you will be looking to do them sort of removes the “random” part of it, but it’s really the acts of kindness I get off on (that maybe doesn’t sound right… or does it?).

Random acts of kindness do NOT include things you would normally do every day.  Helping your brother with his homework does not count.  Doing chores does not count.  If it’s something you would normally do, that’s not what I am after.  Helping someone who wasn’t expecting it is the idea.  Stopping to help a stranded motorist… helping an old lady across the street (she had to want to cross the street… don’t drag some old person kicking and screaming across the street!)… something that brightens someone else’s day when they really could not have expected it is what I’m after.

Maybe this contest isn’t really relevant to Oculus, but this is an awesome community, so we’ll see.

I am looking for 100 or more valid entries between now and April 1.  Please share the contest link with your social media friends, reddit, etc.  Maybe it will bring some new people to Oculus.

This is a self-serving contest.  I just love seeing people be kind.  I do realize that some posts will be total BS.  Hopefully they are kept to a minimum.  If they are obvious BS they will be invalidated.  If you claim to have run into a burning building to save people, please post a link to the news story!

I hope everyone enjoys my little contest and maybe gets a smile out of it and I hope whoever wins really enjoys the hell out of their prize!

    Yeah I just posted in TEN THOUSAND HOURS and a few other small groups. I think everyone should have VR especially ARTIST and Game Developers. I've been ten times more productive lately. Thanks for bringing the opposite of TROLLING to the internet Aliantha

    My pleasure!  I'm going to edit the rules shortly and add a warranty to the prize, they are cheap enough on Amazon.

    First entry :
    It was this morning, 12 hours ago, does it count ?
    My hairdresser went to my home to cut my hair, I gave her 20 Euros of course, it's her job, but I also gave her about 250 Euros worth of meal tickets (Tickets Restaurant) I got from my job because I know she lives alone with her 16 yo girl, and she needs them more than me (I live alone too, but I only have a cat to feed).

    Otherwise, I am a mean old misanthropist >:)

    Wow, so good of you to do this!

    It's difficult for me to do random acts of kindness because my severe depression makes it difficult for me to keep in touch with friends and family and I also have great difficulty leaving my flat.

    I did, however, actually help an old lady across the road a few months back. I saw that she was looking stressed and didn't walk across the pelican crossing when the green man lit up. I asked if she was okay and she said she got intimidated crossing the road even when the green man was lit. So I pressed the button again, waited with her and walked her across. I also waited with her at the bus stop afterwards until her bus came because Tottenham is a bit of a rough area and the kids had just been let out of school.

    And whilst it isn't a random act of kindness I also adopted my best friend's puss cat, Rufus, when he died from cirrhosis a while back. He was such a lovely puss too. He was a big old Ginger Nut who used to be so affectionate. I used to wake up every morning with him asleep on my hip. I lost him to a heart attack three years ago unfortunately, but at least he's with my mate Dave now. :(

    My favourite game is Elite Dangerous because I've been dreaming about flying one of those ships in real life since playing the first game on my 48K Speccy in 1984. The first game has been number one on my best games of all time list and I didn't think ANYTHING would knock that off the top spot. It's now number two! B)

    I don't think I'll ever forget the first time I saw the inside of a Coriolis space station or the first time I jumped out of hyperspace and 16 months later I'm still playing the game with a bloomin great big daft smile on my face. :)

    I forgot about my favourite game on Oculus...

    Maybe not my favourite, there are so many games I play and I love, but I'd say Onward because it's the first game that made me feel new emotions I would've never thought I'd feel in a game, despite my 52 yo,  like FEAR for my life when bullets hit around you and you have to physically crouch or go prone to stay alive.

    What a long way from Pong and Pacman ! :o

    I would like to enter the contest to gift the reward to someone. I really like to give to others but I think this was a random kindness even though it was my friend but, my friend Jonathan has been talking to this girl online for a couple of years and they finally decided to online date me at the time had an online relationship too. But mind didn't end so well with me and the girl. My friend is kind of living in poverty and he really wanted to see this girl so I told him "Don't worry I'll pay for your plane ticket to go see her because I wanna see you guys work out since mine did not. I gave him $300 dollars to get a flight to south Carolina from new york. He was really happy that I did that for him and I told its on me don't worry. This was around September of 2016 and they are still together. I'm happy that I got to get my friend to finally meet his lover. This is something I had never done for someone.

    My favorite oculus title is probably the Serious sam franchise I didn't have any coop sessions but solo I really enjoyed this game really action packed and fun to play on my free time.

    Wow! What a brilliant idea! One step that leads to another. I really like the idea. 

    Entry: 
    1- At work, I have a colleague sitting near me that is going back to school. She has 2 kids. I believe it takes courage to go to work while studying and taking care of 2 kids. Not only that, this person is generous with the people around her, while not expecting anything in return. Then one day I overheard a few discussions about her having trouble with a specific topic, macroeconomics. She's not the type to ask for help as she is shy. So I went to see her a bit later, and offered my help as I mastered this topic when I was at university and I would just be glad her if she could feel the success of mastering this topic and truly achieve what she is aiming for - get a university degree. She was very happy, the smile on her face was priceless. Moreover, it empowered her and restored her confidence. 

    2 - My favorite VR Game... really hard to say there are so many. I'll pick Keep Talking and Nobody Explodes, for all the laughs and screams it created with my friends and family. The game itself has a great variety of challenge and this type of game really brings people together as one. The experience is great, and more importantly, creates these kind of moments we cherish for years.

    Thank you for doing this. If more people could join this contest, we could achieve world peace.
