<p><strong>Step 1. </strong></p>
<p> </p>
<p>Browse to the section where you have created your giveaway thread. Generally all giveaway threads will be posted <a href="http://www.overclock.net/f/293/overclock-net-contests-and-promotions">HERE</a>. Once in the Overclock Contests and Promotions section, you will be able to find your thread. Please see example below. </p>
<p> </p>
<p><a class="H-lightbox-open" href="http://www.overclock.net/content/type/61/id/3070276/"><img alt="" class="lightbox-enabled" data-id="3070276" data-type="61" src="http://www.overclock.net/content/type/61/id/3070276/width/500/height/1000/flags/LL" style="; width: 500px; height: 256px"></a></p>
<p> </p>
<p> </p>
<p><strong>Step 2.</strong></p>
<p> </p>
<p>Now that you have found your thread as per Step 1, look to the right hand side and you will see a column named <strong>''Replies''</strong> as per the example below. </p>
<p> </p>
<p><a class="H-lightbox-open" href="http://www.overclock.net/content/type/61/id/3070277/"><img alt="" class="lightbox-enabled" data-id="3070277" data-type="61" src="http://www.overclock.net/content/type/61/id/3070277/width/500/height/1000/flags/LL" style="; width: 500px; height: 256px"></a> </p>
<p> </p>
<p>Now click on the number, in this case <strong>''23''</strong>. A new window will now pop up showing you the names of who have posted a long with how many posts they have contributed to that thread, as per the example below.</p>
<p> </p>
<p><a class="H-lightbox-open" href="http://www.overclock.net/content/type/61/id/3070280/"><img alt="" class="lightbox-enabled" data-id="3070280" data-type="61" src="http://www.overclock.net/content/type/61/id/3070280/width/500/height/1000/flags/LL" style="; width: 500px; height: 291px"></a></p>
<p> </p>
<p>Now copy the contents of that table which will be the <strong>''Username''</strong> and <strong>''Posts''</strong> Column. If it is an extensive list with a scroll bar, please scroll to the bottom of the list and select the names from the bottom up, this way the scrolling will move with you allowing to to capture everyone. </p>
<p> </p>
<p><strong>Step 3.</strong></p>
<p> </p>
<p>Now that you have the names copied to your clipboard, open up a blank sheet of Excel (This will also work with Google Sheets) and paste the contents into the <strong>''A''</strong> Column. See example below. </p>
<p> </p>
<p><a class="H-lightbox-open" href="http://www.overclock.net/content/type/61/id/3070283/"><img alt="" class="lightbox-enabled" data-id="3070283" data-type="61" src="http://www.overclock.net/content/type/61/id/3070283/width/500/height/1000/flags/LL" style="; width: 500px; height: 621px"></a></p>
<p> </p>
<p>You will notice that thanks to Excels ability to translate tables it has put the number of posts in Column <strong>''B'' </strong>, simply right click the top of Column B and click Delete. This will now leave you with just the names which you require  as per the below example. </p>
<p> </p>
<p><a class="H-lightbox-open" href="http://www.overclock.net/content/type/61/id/3070284/"><img alt="" class="lightbox-enabled" data-id="3070284" data-type="61" src="http://www.overclock.net/content/type/61/id/3070284/width/500/height/1000/flags/LL" style="; width: 500px; height: 627px"></a> </p>
<p> </p>
<p><strong>Step 4.</strong> </p>
<p> </p>
<p>Browse to the <a href="http://www.miniwebtool.com/random-name-picker/" target="_blank">Name Picker</a> we will be using. Copy all the names in Column A of your Excel spreadsheet and past them into the web tool you have opened as per the below example. </p>
<p> </p>
<p><a class="H-lightbox-open" href="http://www.overclock.net/content/type/61/id/3070285/"><img alt="" class="lightbox-enabled" data-id="3070285" data-type="61" src="http://www.overclock.net/content/type/61/id/3070285/width/500/height/1000/flags/LL" style="; width: 500px; height: 259px"></a></p>
<p> </p>
<p>Once all your names are in, click on the <strong>''Pick a Random Name''</strong> button and a name will be picked for you as per below. </p>
<p> </p>
<p><a class="H-lightbox-open" href="http://www.overclock.net/content/type/61/id/3070286/"><img alt="" class="lightbox-enabled" data-id="3070286" data-type="61" src="http://www.overclock.net/content/type/61/id/3070286/width/500/height/1000/flags/LL" style="; width: 500px; height: 324px"></a></p>
<p> </p>
<p> </p>
<p>Congratulations, you now have your winner !</p>
