Fjorn: I'm sorry man, but it's the easiest way to do it as most do use it so it's pretty much the most common means of "social media". Doing something on our website would require everyone be registered on our website and then getting the world out is a bit tougher as with FB it goes on peoples walls, is one click of a button, etc. I understand where you're coming from, but if you have suggestions let us know and we'll surely take it into consideration if you have a better method.
With larger giveaways it really sucks as we can't do it for every forum. If we put the same contest on every forum then announce "xxxx from the cbr forum won" it looks bad to all the forum members of the r1, r6, gixxer, etc that didn't win but we posted it on their forum. So we have to try and consolidate everyone to one place to keep the larger giveaways.
