Additionally, we will randomly give away another 20 more shopping sprees ranging from $20 to $100 based on the entries listed below. We will be giving out a total of $2,000 of shopping sprees.

Warning: This is intentionally a stress test. We are doing this before Black Friday to measure what load our servers can handle. We do expect that you will experience some errors. Try as much as you can over the course of the hour.

Have fun!

UPDATE: 6:50 PM PST
Congratulations! You successfully stressed out our server, and you helped us uncovered some areas that need to be fixed. We will be taking the site down from 11PM PST to 5AM PST to address several of these issues. Since many of you were unable to accomplish some of the tasks because you were so successful at stressing out the server, I will see what we can do about awarding some extra prizes for those of you that hit errors.

The COMC Store Credit Giveaway at the 2014 Industry Summit

We’re less than a week away from our annual trip to Las Vegas!  As if you needed another reason to visit the COMC booth at the 2014 Industry Summit, how about we give you 250 reasons?

New Social Media and the COMC Hockey Pool

Greetings to the COMC Nation! We’re pleased to announce the arrival of our new COMC International Facebook page, as well as our presence on Twitter as COMC International.

We’ve introduced these new venues as a means for our friends outside the United States to communicate with us, so we can address any issues that arise and to help them meet their needs as international customers of COMC.

Everybody into the pool!

We’re pleased to announce a contest for all our hockey loving friends. We’ve set up a hockey box pool for the upcoming 2013-14 NHL Season.  We’ll be offering prizes for 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place – the prizes will be determined on the number of participants in the pool, overall. The more players we have, the bigger the prizes we’ll give out.

Entry is really easy:

First: Score the COMC Social Media Hat Trick, by liking our COMC Facebook page, our new COMC International Facebook Page, and following our new COMC International Twitter page.

Next: Go to COMC Hockey Pool to register your team. Be sure to use your COMC username as your team name for easier identification.

It’s a beauty!

Then: Set your lineup and you’re good to go!

Along with the grand prizes at the end of the season, we’ll be giving out monthly prizes of COMC History points, based on the pool standings at the beginning of every month. We’ll also give a random team a prize of COMC history points, just for participating. So, there’ll be plenty of opportunities to win!

Be sure to sign up as soon as possible, as the season starts on October 1st and the deadline to enter and make any changes to your team is October 6th, 7pm PDT.

Good luck to everyone who signs up. Game on!

And, as always, be sure to keep up with all the news and company updates by following us on our blog, Twitter, Facebook, and Youtube pages.

COMC All-Star MVP Contest Player Assignments!

Hello everyone, Moe here. We’ve just closed the doors on entries for our 1st All-Star MVP contest. We want to thank everyone who joined us on Twitter and tweeted the winning phrase for everyone to see.

We’ve compiled our list of entries, as well as a list of the players participating in the All-Star game tonight, and through the use of abject randomization, we’ve matched each player to a twitter handle.

Now, you may notice that we have more MLB players than COMC Nation members – we noticed that, too. And, some of the starters didn’t even make the list, that’s just how random things got.

So, here’s what we’re going to do. If tonight’s MVP is a player *not* attached to a COMC Nation member, then we’ll head back to Random.org and use their services to pick a winner from the list of entries. One way or another, someone is getting $20 of COMC Store Credit.

So, here are the pairings! Enjoy the game tonight and we’ll announce the winner after the game!

*update*

Apparently, Twitter needs to do some work on their search engine software; we were trying to track #COMCMVP and we missed a few people. If your name isn’t on the list below, let us know by 3pm and we’ll add you to the list. We’ve sorry about the inconvenience!
