    i need to learn how to read. Someday!


    The best and mosy classic thread has to be hands down the hacking of the HD2 with Android.

  • Alexander Ramirez

    INB4…. Oh F-it…. I don’t stand a chance….

  • Dana Garner-Johnson

    I really hate to see someone who enters with their first post, and all 16 people who thanked or liked their post also joined today, and never posted. Seems a little strange to me.

    • Guest

      +1 An account shouldn’t be able to thank or like a post without actually posting first.

      • Dana Garner-Johnson

        I agree, although I did make my boyfriend join and like my post, but he is the only one I know that would even have an interest in having a Android forums account. I certainly don’t know 16 people that would join for me.

      • EarlyMon

        Creating multiple accounts violates the site rules and guidelines.

        But family and friends, like Rob said, are all aok.

        • shabbypenguin

          somehow i have a feeling regardless of it all i wont be winning :P

    • RitishOemraw

      it’s baes on likes/thanks Omg I am sooo gonna lose…..I have like 0 friends who LIKE android……..only a 1-2 that are anti-iPhone and the rest thinks iPhones rock or don’t care about smartphones in general …..pity me and please thanks/like my post if you actually like the topic I posted…was like 3rd or fourth to post in the topic

    • Dana Garner-Johnson

      Well I see the same entrant is at it again, they now have 33 likes to their post. I checked a random sample, and all of the ones I have checked joined today or yesterday….meanwhile everyone else only has between 0 and 7 likes or thanks….I admit I made my boyfriend join (he was afraid he would no longer get bedroom privileges if he didn’t lol) and I got my ex to join. It is pretty amazing to know 33 people willing to join for you to win a contest!

      • Kieron Quinn

        Thinking the same, very generic names on that post too. Not complaining/reporting, just contemplating

  • arguellas

    If my family members liked/thanked my post, and all of them created accounts in Android Forums only to upvote me, does that count? And if all were done from the same pc?

  • Dustin Schmidt

    I had a big family gathering at my house so I made everybody join and like my post lol there is no other way I could ever get that many people to join.

  • anthonymcneil85

    Well too bad the majority of my buddies are not tech-people…ugh. I really wanted to win a prize too…

  • Jaymoon

    Great, a popularity contest… Well I have no chance whatsoever.

  • Pedro Baltazar

    Cant wait for the Nexus Table 7 : )

  • Kieron Quinn

    Is it just me, or does look suspicious? I’m just thinking, not reporting. It’s just that there are loads of accounts created at times very close to each other, with no other posts

  • nexus4life

    I was going to send my kid to college but decided to get him a new Galaxy Nexus, Nexus 7 and Nexus Q instead. Now all needs is the new Chromebox and he’ll be all set.. problem is I ran out of money. Does this make me a bad father??

  • Tommy Thompson

    I hope I winz.

  • shabbypenguin

    this contest should have been limited to 2 things IMO. one that person should have had to have been the author of said post and a 50 post minimum limit. i cant believe how many new accounts have less then 10 posts but somehow manage to be the most helpful person on AF…
