Curses. I have never even been remotely tempted to make a Twitter account before this. *Broods over cost/benefit*

I do like the idea of writing about one's favorite WW2 weapon though. The possibility of those nice prizes might just force me into this...

Bah, had picked a weapon and stared to figure out what I was going to write when I saw it

Wilsonam, any idea if Tripwire are planning on setting up any other type of competitions with some UK and/or European based sites?

Yes, I'm a Brit. So I hate all Europeans... Blame the IRS - they insist on US companies withholding 30% tax on anything that goes outside the country, including prizes. Which really makes these things fairly ridiculous. Yes, we had to sort out the tax issues on events like the KF mapping contests.

I would say none, without any kind of joking.
