Is microsoft cheating us? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Is microsoft cheating us by showing points and offers? Many of the points are not given by Microsoft.. like for referrals, forums etc. I think they are stealing Indian student's brain n time..

  • I agree that thsi contest requires more devotion of time from the students, but we are also getting something in return, which normal persons will not get. We have  a chance to learn and know abut the latest cutting edge technologies. why not just take it as a oppurtunity rather than just focusing on being the winner or in the top 50 :)
    Ofcourse, everyone wants to become a winner, but what is more important is the thins that we would have learnt at the end of this event.

  • we're still not in good position to learn good things. lot of useless forums are running in this forum.

  • yes m8, there are lot of useless stuffs going on here, but i think that is what MS wants us to do, they want us to learn in this forums, but as we dont have anything to discuss, we keep on posting useless stuffs. we need something that can help all the members  learn something from each other. there should be  a teaching/learning spirit amongst all the contenders.

    there are abuot 3000+ accounts created in this student rockstar, and only a few of them are into the forums, rest of them i think have just signed in for the participation :) If they all become active in the forums, then we can get to learn a lot.

  • same here m8, the points have always been updated for me as specified in the points table on the site. Once the points was not updated for the announcement, but it was updated in 2-3 days automatically.
