The Power1 Biker Code of India
Took a look down a westbound road,
Right away I made my choice
Headed out to my big two-wheeler,
I was tired of my own voice....
We rolled across the high plains
Deep into the mountains
Felt so good to me
Finally feelin' free

Here's a contest for all the bikers out there - and those of you who have biker friends!
Let us know if you have any questions, and please give us your ideas for the T-shirt design!
How willl Indiblogger will know where to deliver the T shirt ??
You will soon get an e-mail from the IB team, to update your profile.
Go to Dashboard--> Account Settings--> Edit Profile
and update your address. The T-shirt will be courierd to you!
This wait is never ending.... Pls IB announce the results!!
Sorry everyone, there's been a delay because we found not one, but two plagiarized posts. Contests bring out the best in most, and the worst in a few. I don't see the winners being announced before Tuesday.
In the meantime though, could you all update your profile with your address (India only) and T-shirt size?
Ohh thats sad!!
small is it 36??
medium is it 38??
large is it 40??
xl is it 42??
xxl is it 44??
xxxl is it 46??
please notify as it would result in mentioning the correct size .... cheers!!
Btw, 1 tee per entry or per participant? If 1 tee per entry, can I get the 2 tee's in 2 diff sizes???
Ah.. multiple T-shirt sizes for multiple entries... I didn't see that coming!
All right then - we'll make a special form and send the link to the participants by email!
Yayeeeeeeeee. I'm going to get 2 IndiShirts then. Yay Me. Finally participating in contests paid off.
Who doesn't wear T-Shirts
He mentioned now na
You don't wear T-SHIRTS. Ok give them to me. I'll wear IndiShirt daily
And what about the color of the t-shirt....can we have something in black...:P
HOPE POSTS WRITTEN IN LANGUAGES OTHER THAN ENGLISH IS CONSIDERED WELL.................
Now, plagiarism is a fairly serious thing to encounter, Renie... it happens quite so often on the social networks. Lifting FB updates, sending other's tweets as your own, and pretending that a picture was clicked by you are just some of the things I see a lot of people doing without any qualms. Copying entire blog posts is taking it to a higher level. Deal with it severly!
Well said Arvind. It seriously pisses off when you have put in all the hardwork and someone sitting somewhere passes it as his/her own and there is no dearth of such people all around.
:) We are talking plagirism on personal blogs. I have seen plagiarism in corporate websites too. Way back in 2005-2006, we (my Boss and me) prepared a document highlighting our consulting service offering.
Years later, I found the same text word-by-word on a competing company's website !!
Getting inspired is one thing. Plagiarism is another. People often end up doing a Ctrl+C, Ctrl+V without any application of thought.
Plagiarism? Well simply, barred those entries and move on!
I have found one entire blog that has copied me completely from pen name to my "ABOUT ME" AND ALL THAT...what to do? :(
I felt bad and wrote to google but no avail!
Hey Ekta ... thats taking plagirism to the level of Identity Theft.
Posing someone else's work as your own - Plagiarism ||| Posing someonse else altogether - Identity Theft.
Hope they have restricted to only the blog and not other spheres of your life.
I agree with you...someone just use my pen name, uses my "about me" and freely blogging on the net. I hope they do not do otherwise else it will be very unfair.
The lady could have just asked me to give her some ideas rather than stealing my whole stuff :(
announcing a firm date for contest results would save a million missing beats..
Let us do a community blog on "Waiting for Results"?
Congratulations, Ranjith on moving from consolation winner to main prize winner. This years seems to have begun on a cracker for you.
Not too bad for me either. After breaking my Indi jinx at Vodafone, I have added one more to my tally - this time in the main medals section. Thanks Castrol and Indi-blogger. Never imagined my fantasy spoof would actually win.
Congrats to Princess for her first win. Congrats to Bhavana, Mr. Passey, Frigid Insanity and others. Though most prizes are biking gear, funnily quite a few non bikers seem to figure in the winners list.
Congrats all winners!!! The Fool, I am so happy for you! Your spoof worked! Congrats everybody else! All of us won at least a T-Shirt!
Congrats to you too TF.. :)...Looks like ur on a roll!!.. and congrats to all the winners as well for great entries!! was fun reading them again.
Thanks DS. I couldn't just believe my eyes when I woke up in the morning and had a text message from Ani saying I had won a prize.
You are the true winner, man. You are the one who inspired me for this post.
Congrats Ranjith. A well deserved win. We Want PARTYYYYYYYYYYY.
Congrats to TF JHI. You are on a Roll. Hope you keep getting more and more and that we get to keep reading awesome posts.
Congratulations to all other winners as well.
I can't believe I won. At least for this, I'm really going to go learn how to ride a bike.
Thank you so much
Nice to see a lot of my indi-friends on the winner's list... a great feeling. And yes, even I have won a prize.
...and the best thing is that I'll be eligible for TWO Tees... lovely!
Congrats to all winners! :)
May the non-bikers in the winner's list also get an opportunity to ride a bike soon enough!!
Congratulations! Tell meif there' any contest that you do not win?
