  • completing offers is the original version and is importantly the version of the article which was Featured.
  • money was introduced here several days after Featuring. Its only virtue is that it is funny (and is the version used in the "expanded article"), but that misses the point of why it was featured in the first place, which is that it's supposed to be authentic vandalism with no redeemable qualities. --L 07:56, 17 June 2007 (UTC)
"Money" is not a verb. You can't reffer freinds to do money, unless you all have some pretty sordid private lives. --Strange (but) Untrue  Whhhy?Whut?How? *Back from the dead* 13:01, 17 June 2007 (UTC)
I do money all the time. I just wish a hot sexy female would be on the dollar bill. Marilyn Monroe, anyone? --Crazyswordsman...With SAVINGS!!!! (T/C) 19:52, 17 June 2007 (UTC)

Explanation behind the change

On the Euroipods website (now Eurogiveaways), this text explains how offers are completed:

"To get your free item you must complete an offer on our site. When you log in you will see a list of our current offers. These change quite regularly, but will usually be very low in price, but usually are around 10 British Pounds. Of course you have no obligation to carry on purchasing products or services from our offer companies but we find that many customers often do!"

So, since completing offers does indeed cost money, that's probably why the change was made. --14px-Stupcarp_for_sig.png» >UF|TLK|» 21:27, 17 June 2007 (UTC)

We need to return Euroipods to its pristine state.

The entire article should read as follows:

A website giving away free ipods in return for

a) completing offers
b) reffering freinds to do the same

And the featured templates. The rest should go onto a page called Euroipods/Testimonials. This will make Euroipods look the way it was meant to be. --Crazyswordsman...With SAVINGS!!!! (T/C) 04:13, 18 June 2007 (UTC)

Flamewar, anyone? --Strange (but) Untrue  Whhhy?Whut?How? *Back from the dead* 08:42, 18 June 2007 (UTC)
/me pulls up my deckchair and cracks a tube --Pieface 08:47, 18 June 2007 (UTC)

Here's my two cents:


NO.


Chron's already declared that page off limits for a year (expires roughly next Euroipods day), and I, for one, am not going to incite the third flamewar in a year and a half. But if you must dredge up this shit again, by no means let me detain you. (polishes banhammer)RT. HON. HINOA, KNIGHT COMMANDER OF THE ORDER (BEG FOR MERCY)17:07, 20 June 2007 (UTC)

Yeah. Move on. Go and write something new. Sir Modusoperandi Boinc! 20:46, 20 June 2007 (UTC)
Hey, I'm not flaming, I'm just giving my two cents. My opinion on the article has never been revealed. I'm just saying I think that would be nice. But if you guys don't want it, then, well, at least it's on the table for just in case you change your minds. I'll shut up now. --Crazyswordsman...With SAVINGS!!!! (T/C) 20:49, 20 June 2007 (UTC)

I like the following version:

A website giving away free ipods in return for

a) completing offers
b) reffering freinds to do the same
c) giving Electrified mocha chinchilla a tugjob

Oooooo, is there going to be more blood on the servers, Mummy? Will a notable user's head asplode again? Wait, why are you dragging me away from the topic, Mummy? *is dragged off the topic by his protective mommy* ----OEJ 02:41, 21 June 2007 (UTC)

Compromise?

Why not just

I thought the compromise that we made was that we removed various names off the page and then we left it...

Nobody cares about Euroipods. --Hotadmin4u69 [TALK] 06:57, 23 June 2007 (UTC)
At least nobody who hasn't been banned and doesn't count. --Strange (but) Untrue  Whhhy?Whut?How? *Back from the dead* 09:44, 23 June 2007 (UTC)

I feel your pain SbU. My first block was for mispelling "your" (or was it "you're"?) in a message to Famine. At least thats what he said. I still maintain he banned me because I said he was adorable. ~ Dame Ceridwyn ~ talk DUN VoNSE arc2.0 06:18, 24 June 2007
Well, I managed to avoid one for well over half a year, which is a pretty good record judging by most people's block logs. As long as I can avoid any serious bans, I'm happy! --Strange (but) Untrue  Whhhy?Whut?How? *Back from the dead* 10:27, 24 June 2007 (UTC)

Why is this being debated

Let the damn thing R.I.P already. --Uncyclon - Do we still link to BENSON? 09:46, 27 June 2007 (UTC)

Unfortunately, you've ignited a new fire in me now. I now must bitch and moan incessantly about Euroipods, an article which is pointless in every sense of the word. GO EAT SHIT FUCKERS! Oh wait, wrong article....Sir Ljlego, GUN VFH FIYC WotM SG WHotM PWotM AotM EGAEDM ANotM + (Talk) 21:12, 27 June 2007 (UTC)
Personally, I enjoyed the many, many months I spent bitching about Euroipods. I remember that feeling of anticipation I would get, get before clicking that link to the talk page... that hot adrenaline rush, followed by the dull ache of regret whenever I discovered that nobody had added any pointless bitching that day. I remember getting into my Ferrari and driving for hours, just hoping that I'd quickly run out of gas, and then have to walk home for miles in the cold, just so I could blame it on Euroipods. And then one day, it all came to an end. I had no idea where to go, or what to do with myself. Eventually I learned that by dipping my head in a vat full of hot Turtle Wax™ car polish, I could make myself almost completely unattractive to the opposite sex. So, I decided to stop doing that.
So... what were we talking about, again?  c • > • cunwapquc? 00:57, 28 June 2007 (UTC)
I believe hot turtle wax was one of the industrial strength cosmetics used to highlight Seth Brundle's (Jeff Goldblum's) transformation from human to common winged insect in the 1986 sci-fi classic, The Fly.

Seth Brundle? Ohhh, yeahhhh, I remember him. Damn, he still owes me fifty bucks from that time I helped clean off his thorax after that nasty incident with the exterminator they brought in to forcibly remove him from the Trump Taj Mahal in Atlantic City, NJ. Anwyay, that would certainly explain the "unattractive to the opposite sex" thing, I suppose... Thanks, T!  c • > • cunwapquc? 05:33, 28 June 2007 (UTC)

Didn't this happen like two years ago?

Get over it, people. Beating dogs that have already decomposed. The pile of bones will not pop up and make people laugh unless those bones were all funny bones and they start dancing the Charleston (if they're white bones), or something like that.

Beating a corpse? Doesn't Zombiebaron make a living doing something like that? --Starnestommy (TalkContribsFFSWP) 07:41, 30 June 2007 (UTC)
Actually, I think it happened a year and a half ago. --Crazyswordsman...With SAVINGS!!!! (T/C) 12:20, 30 June 2007 (UTC)
This was slight exaggeration, but we're talking interwebnet time, and in that context it's like 500 years. Dawg.gif » Brig Sir Dawg | t | v | c » 2007.06.30.13:44
Older than that. More like a billion years. --Crazyswordsman...With SAVINGS!!!! (T/C) 23:42, 30 June 2007 (UTC)
