I'm worth a million in prizes...
A mere year and a half since we posted the totals, (09.05.2004 NEWS: BOWIENET GIVE-AWAY LATEST TOTALS) I've finally got my arse into gear and listed the contents of the BowieNet vaults.
Those of you interested in this know what it's all about and have been waiting far too long to learn how you may be rewarded for your labours.
For that I apologise, and by way of compensation I have doubled the points of everybody listed below.
BowieNet point totals in alphabetical order:
Also j_lope and ZiggyStarGirl both found a Mystery Prize token. That concept won't really work how I had intended it to for the original contest now. However, I have awarded both of you 100 points each, automatically doubled to 200.
OK, so that's the amount of points you found at the time, but now you can double them. For example, zig actually collected 305 points, (even though he only claimed 205!) so he now has 610 points to spend from the list below.
All you have to do now is claim your booty in an e-mail to me to the value of the points you now have. There should be enough of everything for everybody to get what they choose. But in the unlikely event that there isn't, it will work on a first-come-first-served basis until stocks are exhausted.
You may claim only one of each item up to the value of your points. For example, if you have 600 points you could claim the withdrawn Hunky Dory and the set of six Simply Vinyl LPs with 60 points to spare, but you couldn't claim two Hunky Dorys.
There's no time limit on when you can claim by, indeed, the vault will be updated as we get new items so you're quite welcome to wait for something else if nothing takes your fancy right now.
We'll also be running a competition on the first of each month to win points that can be spent in the BowieNet vaults starting next month. We'll be making a more permanent page for this purpose which will be updated with new arrivals as and when we get them.
