  • Hmm ... no idea about that. ww.nic.com says, that it is registered to Microsoft Fan Club with no address given (Something that I love with .de domains - there you MUST HAVE real information inside!).

    So at least I do not trust in it. 3 Members get a simple reward. Ok a License of windows 7 is nice, but home edition? What do I want with a home edition license?

    And what do oyu have to do to get points? Write a lot of stuff about microsoft articles? A lot of work for a small chance to get something?

    So at least nothing for me.

    With kind regards,

    Konrad

  •  It definitely does not look Microsoft supported. They do seem to have
    placed a lot of effort in appearing to be supported by Microsoft, but I
    would definitely not give them any personal information. They also seem
    to have copied verbatim some of the content from Microsoft as well...

  • Nope, i've never heard of that site. I took a look and i think is some sort of regional site focused on turkish and russian people. It could well be one big fake site which just wants you to register. Prices are always a easy object for registering. Although it looks like a website i think it's actually a sharepoint environment. Do some searchin on this site using searchengines and there'sot a lot of info on this site. So it's up to the reader to believe what they want to believe.

    I'll pass this one and stick to this site which i'm a fan of ;-)
