The winners for the Zombieguide 5th Anniversary Contest have been chosen! Congratulations to Mattia (Forum name: ridiculous_thoughts86) of Italy for taking home the Grand Prize of an autographed copy of "Everybody Else..." and all the other goodies. Also congrats to Andrea (Delphy) of Italy and Uncer (dummy) of Spain for winning the runner-up prizes. Each will receive a copy of Mick Carran's biography of "The Cranberries." Good luck to everyone in the next contest!
This month, Zombieguide celebrates its 5th year online. Since we were founded in September 1998, we've grown from a small, ambitious fansite into a... moderately-sized ambitious fansite. And it's all thanks to you, the loyal visitor.
Earlier this year, we had some major hosting troubles that almost put us down for good, and so we are very grateful to all the people who have supported us, both verbally and monetarily.
So to give back to our daily websurfing constituency, it's customary around these parts to have an annual contest.
What Can You Win?
Grand Prize: (One Winner)
Autographed CD of "Everybody Else Is Doing It, So Why Can't We?," signed by Dolores O'Riordan and Mike Hogan

Zombieguide has the most active Cranberries message boards on the Internet, with an average of 60 new posts every day, and I know you'll enjoy the company of other like-minded Cranfans. Note: If you registered before March 2003, but haven't posted since then, you will need to register again.
The Rules: All posts by Guests and non-registered names will be deleted and disqualified. Contest is only open to Zombieguide Forum users. Only one entry per person. Anyone suspected of cheating will be disqualified. In the event of a conflict, the webmaster of this site will be the sole judge, whose decision is final.
Many thanks again, and good luck to all!
