iocean x8 review

Update: some people are having trouble finding the comment box on Punchtab, not to worry just use at least one other form of entry (there are 9 in total) and you will still be entered. Also the more options you try the more chance of winning. The comment is no longer needed.

Over this past week we have posted some simple questions and sentences which need the missing words adding to them. If you missed any of the steps don’t worry as the links below will take you to the questions so you can still take part:

iOcean giveaway Parts:

If you answered all of those questions and completed all those steps correctly then you should have a jumble of  8 letters, here is what you need to do next;

  1. Unscramble the 8 letters to make a Chinese tech website.
  2. Enter the giveaway using the Punchtab box below.
  3. To enter you must enter your email (this will be used to let you know when we end the giveaway, announce the winner and tell you of more giveaways).
  4. In addition to using your email you will also have to post your answer as a comment in Punchtab. (the email and comment are the only mandatory steps to enter).
  5. Comment no longer needed, just enter with at least your email.

For more chances of winning you can also perform the additional steps in Punchtab including, liking our Facebook page, sharing on Twitter, Tweeting etc You don’t need to perform these extra steps but you will get more of a chance of winning if you do.

Winners will be chosen at random and we will announce he or she next Sunday first via email then as a post on GizChina.com.

    Nice! But i don’t know where i can put the answer.. There is no box in punchtab.

    • June 22, 2014

          • June 22, 2014

            nope, won’t be counted. Enter using at least your email in punchtab and you will be entered, comment not longer needed

        • June 22, 2014

          Yep you will be fine, the comment option has been removed 😀

    Hi Andi,

    I´ve enter the contest and there is no comment box in the punch tab box to comment…. in fact I cannot edit my empty comment….

    Can you check it?

    Thank you!

    • Andrew P
      June 22, 2014

      Same, I can’t see any comments box as in previous giveaway. Check it, Andi.

      • June 22, 2014

        In punchtab enter your email
        then you will have some options to choose
        the first is add to your timeline if you don’t want to just skip, then you will see a box which asks you to enter the answer this is the comment box.

        • dawid
          June 22, 2014

          there is no box in this step

          9 steps but no comment box to enter the answer.

          • June 22, 2014

            it is step 2

            • MLP
              June 22, 2014

              Step 2 is the youtube video

            • Ron
              June 22, 2014

              #2 was a twitter share.

            • June 22, 2014

              Well the box you are looking for is the one in the image above. Perhaps it shows at random but each time I checked it is step 2.

            • Tazkira Prilianda
              June 22, 2014

              But, it can’t fill the answer:(

            • Ron
              June 22, 2014

              Ok, saw that one, but there was no box to enter the answer, clicking on the text didn’t change a thing either. Also using firefox.

            • June 22, 2014

              Don’t worry comment is now longer needed, Punchtab seems to be broken for some.

            • Ron

  5. Γιάννης
    June 22, 2014

    Seriously Andy, there IS NO comment box here. The widget’s javascript is obviously wrong and doesn’t show up.

    • June 22, 2014

      See the updated giveaway rules, just choose any option to enter and you will be in with a chance.

      • Γιάννης
        June 22, 2014

  6. June 22, 2014

    UPDATED: Just choose at least one of the options from Punchtab and you will still be entered. The more options you complete though the more chance of winning. Currently 227 correct answers 😀

  7. M Junaid
    June 22, 2014

    Well I think I didn’t noticed that comment box and have skipped it… so now it is saying “Congrats you have earned 1 entry for your comments” even when I did not post any comments… so how am i going to edit and Post my answer there???

    • June 22, 2014

      haha lucky you 😀 Updated the rules now so that as long as you have entered your email you are entered in the giveaway.

      • M Junaid

    This definitely is not an easy contest 😛 . The answer is not the problem , but the entering

  9. Dan Valentin
    June 22, 2014

    thx for for the amazing giveaway!. How can i verify that my comment was send? I know it says : thx for your comment… but i had an error while click that send button due to the disqus log on. So i had to log out from disqus, but i’m not sure i sent an empty field or the complete answers wrote.

    • June 22, 2014

      if you entered your email that is counted as at least one entry 😀

      • Dan Valentin
        June 22, 2014

    Hi Andy, i just clicked on done on the comment section because it was not showing the area for writing comment, although i have completed all the other entries, so am i still eligible for the contest.

    • June 22, 2014

      yep, see the updated rules

      • Parag Sarwade
        June 22, 2014

        Ok

  11. June 22, 2014

    Andi, I cannot edit the empty space with “LEAVE YOUR ANSWER TO THE IOCEAN X8 GIVEAWAY” to enter my answer. The space is locked and cannot be edited.

    ANDI THIS IS SO NOT FAIR.

  12. Csaba
    June 22, 2014

    So how should this crappy PunchTab work? I enter everything, press the button and nothing happen. Just like last time I tried to use it for something. Seriously I don’t understand why good sites like this are using this “tool”.

    • June 22, 2014

      so we can easily store all entries and choose a winner.

      • Csaba
        June 22, 2014

        Yes, that should be the point. But without entries it won’t be easy.

        • June 22, 2014

          Seems there are more people entering without issue rather than the other way around. Anyway I have updated the entry details

  13. June 22, 2014

    yep, guess punchtab is broken 🙁

  14. June 22, 2014

    Andi do I need to click the DONE button before I can edit the empty space to enter my answer? Please reply ASAP.

  15. June 22, 2014

    Pleasure, hope it is all fixed for everyone now

    Dear.Andi I had only a total nine entries,because in 4th step it just didn’t gave me any options to like the fb page of yours.But,I didn’t gave a like button before for your fb page,then why such error happened?Also,I no where found a option to enter the right answer,but I did entered my mail id as you have suggested,Is that ok,Andi?

    I hate these giveaway contests … Because i never win… but i feel like such a greedy bastard!!! because i end up getting tempted and go for it again and again… SO basically i never win but end up over burdening my conscience with guilt for wanting things and end up self judging and self criticizing for being an GREEDY A$$HOLE..!!! While when i have never won anything in the first place… How depressing.. !!! T_____T

Really huge visitor IMHO, more than 2K joining this giveaway, yes I not lie, actually more than 3K, but only some of them refused my request 🙂 and the rest enter this giveaway with my short link ptab.it/
