You're invited, muddafukka!
GOOD DAY MEADAMNÃ‰! Deck your dick, prepare your beehive, and get your anus ready for the cleansing of a lifetime. Oh and also, you're invited to this year's Christmas Eve event. Bet you can't guess what we're giving away...
Everything is going to be done the same way as last year, except the prizes of course! Last year was extremely lame, we know, that's why there will be NO WELKAS allowed this year.
Oh, and no fucking any Christmas trees or snowmen this year! Instead, you'll have to bash a beehive. Bash it good and hard now..
We're going to be throwing up some more holiday movies on BetaChat TV and again, very strategically placing the giveaway in between them.
Anyways we hope that you'll join us again this year for some awesome fun and some awesome giveaways and prizes. It's gonna be a good time, we promise.

Some Q&A to answer some "common questions":
Q: What the fuck is this shit you're gay as fuck?
A: Damn haters again! Go play with a beehive, light it on fire, and throw it on your neighbor's porch. Wait no, don't.. That's illegal.
Q: I'm allergic to bees and I'm still pulling pine needles out of my dick from the Christmas tree two years ago.
A: Sorry to hear that and that you take us so seriously.
Q: What are you giving away?
A: Free beehives and packages of bees.
Q: What are you seriously giving away?
A: We have at least 3 sponsors so far this year at the time of writing this newsletter with some other people thinking about it still:
-Taylor's going to be sponsoring a dedicated server giveaway. This server will be shipped right from the vendor to your doorstep. We're looking at a SuperMicro 1U rack server with a Xeon 5420, 8 gigs of RAM, and a 500 gigabyte hard drive. (just kidding)
-Mike's going to do a $50 BestBuy gift card to the OnDeck winner come giveaway time. We've just reset everyone's scores before sending this out.
-Nolan's giving away a $25 Amazon gift card.
-Noah's giving away a brand new latest generation Apple TV and $50 in ZTN Hosting credit.
Q: What do I need to do to participate?
A: Same as last year. You'll need to:
-Have Voice (+) in #betachat
-Not have a network ban in place on the BetaChat network or channel ban in place in #betachat.
-Not be named Taylor Welka.
-Participate in the festivities in #betachat on Christmas Eve.
Q: Do I really have to participate? And to what level?
A: Yes. You have to show your face and like last year, be online and talking in the community for a good portion of the night.
Q: I won't be online on Christmas Eve..
A: Sorry! Find a way - even if it's on your mobile device! We've got BetaChat TV mobile-ready this year for most devices including Apple ones!
Q: Why did you change your name to BetaChat? Can't you make your mind up?
A: lol no
Q: Will Taylor be sponsoring any of the giveaways this year?
A: Lol, absolutely no Taylors allowed this year or anytime in the future because of what he did last year.
Q: Will the staff be allowed to participate?
A: Yes. The staff have the same chances of winning as anybody else.
Q: What time will the giveaway be?
A: It's unannounced and completely random. Nobody, not even the staff will know the exact time that the giveaway happens.
Q: Is anybody not permitted to participate in the giveaway?
A: Yes, the following people are not allowed to win:
-The sponsor of the particular giveaway occurring (obviously)
-Anybody that has a ban in place on the network or the main channel.
-Anybody that does not meet the criteria above ("You'll need:")
Q: What if one of those are chosen?
A: Another winner will be chosen instantly.
Q: How will the winner be chosen?
A: The same way as last year. We'll display a phone number on BetaChat TV for about a minute or so. Call that number as soon as you see it - right after the number is shown we'll display a code to punch in that will connect you with Noah. The first person to key in the code will win that giveaway. Don't worry - we'll also tell you with the phone number to press the spacebar on your keyboard which will reload the player and eliminate any excess buffer and ensure everyone's watching at the same time, giving everyone a fair chance to win.
Q: So, the person won't be hilighted when they're chosen as a winner?
A: That's correct. This ensures that the winner is participating and watching BetaChat TV when the giveaway happens.
Q: Should I highlight the person that's picked as a winner continuously when they're chosen?
A: Obviously not - you should be hoping that the chosen one is not paying attention or not there, unless you're nice enough to nudge the person.. but I'm pretty sure that YOU want to win ;)
Q: What movies are you playing this year?
A: You'll just have to find out come Christmas Eve. :)
If you have any more questions about the giveaway, hit us up in #betachat on irc.betachat.net.
Cheers & Happy Holidays from all of the BetaChat staff team!!
