    So there are a couple of upcoming events and competitions, thanks to the participation of our awesome moderating team :)

    But more generally, what would you like to get when it comes to prizes that we offer in competitions, contests, tournaments and all ?
    We know, nobody wants DS flashcarts anymore :P those were previously offered by flashcart stores, but I am sure that everyone's got their card by now.

    Anyhow: what do you want?
    Post some realistic ideas only please, we don't really care that you want a ferrari or an apartment in Manhattan etc. :toot:

    It's always good to ask the community what they want... one day you might be the one who gets all the free stuff!

    Yes, that would be nice. Otherwise I would focus on 3DS/PSV since they are kind of the future of GBAtemp atm, you can see it as an investment because the more people have one of those, the more chance you have to get more visitors.
    Or if that proves too expensive, controllers like PS3/360/Wii controllers are always welcome IMHO.
    Or headsets like Hadrian has given one away recently.

    I'm very glad you understand that everyone has their flashcard already.

    I guess you could just do something simple like Microsoft Points, or Steam money or something :/

    Gaming handhelds. Like a DS, 3DS, PSP, PSVita, Dingoo, GBA...or even gaming consoles!! :P

    Edit: Then again, a majority of us gamers might already have most of them... how about reedemable codes towards PS3 DLC, 3DS eShop, etc?

    Or better yet, give us money!! ;)

    That's a much better suggestion than you computer components one. Not everyone has knowledge of hardware, not everyone can fit that component in their PC, not everyone wants that.
    A tablet, especially decent ones like the one you mention, are really appealing. +1

    A GBAtemp themed broadsword.
    ...no?
    A price limit would help.

    GBAtemp themed anything would be fun. Mousepads, mice, keyboards, tshirt, mugs, hats. Handheld skins. Badge/button sets. Though you'd prooobably want to put a few choices (like, 3 prizes, first place picks first, second place second, etc) for most prizes like that.

    better yet, invent a GBAtemp trading card game and give out booster packs that won't be sold anywhere else, so you have to win to collect 'em all.

    +1 for Steam vouchers! :D

    Maybe 3DS games as a big prize, or a choice from 3 3DS games (in case the winner already owns one).
    General tech stuff as Another World said, I'd be more than happy with anything from that list.

    Keyboard and a mouse, preferably good quality xD
    More headsets
    Some retro consoles perhaps? I'm happy getting something like a N64 or a SNES perhaps even a GBA xD...
    Steam gifts
    I'd have to disagree with shop gift cards as it may not exactly work on a country to country basis...
    A 3DS, region of your choice (I badly want a US 3DS for the sequel to 999)
    Memory Cards, USB's, External HDD's
    I can't remember what it's called but it allows you to connect internal hard drives into a holder of sorts which then plugs into a usb port in your computer, usually has support for SATA and IDE HDD's.

    A caddy (or disk enclosure, whatever you want to call it).
