giveaway/contest question

I followed the links for the giveaway/contest with the tribble and the minis. They wouldn't give me the code unless I had a Facebook account, which I don't want to have. Is there another way to get the code, or am I ineligible? Or, could a friend get the code for me?

    ... could a friend get the code for me?

    This is my question too... thanks, person above me. I might just hijack someone's FB to get the code.

    Hey - they need something from sponsoring the event....

    I just created the account, got the code, and writen account data somewhere (if ever need it in future) ... and then simple "forgot" it...

    Also note that you'll have to give their app access to your account. You may not even notice this if you've already enabled the app system in Facebook. God knows what info they'll leech from your account and what they'll do with it.

    Thanks for info - as i'm new to FB, i don't completly understand this, but i just turned off app access completly (i hope)...

    The Tribble was everything, that i wanted from this, and the account was fresh, so there should not be any information to leech from my account (maybe that i'm male, and how old i am, i even do not use my real name on internet accounts like this).

    Just use a blank account and delete it afterwards pig-1.gif​​

    In this day and age of data mining and such, that is a very wise idea
