I "won" one time. They never contacted me and then when I contacted them they never gave me anything.


So how do you know you won?

In the contest section it had my name at the bottom. It was a few months ago so its not there anymore. A friend PMed me with a question and say congrats on winning the contest. I checked and I had won, but no emails or prizes EVER got to me. I was in contact with Casulty01 and all he said was "I will handle it tomarrow". No one even handled it no matter how much I asked all the mods and Admins!!!! Err.

They announced his name as a winner. Unfortunately he'd entered a UK only contest.

That doesnt explain anything about why I wasnt contacted or anything. If you knew about it then so should the admins who were supposed to contact me.

Plus, It doesnt require you to enter your address or anything when entering so how would they have known!?

Dont bother. If you win, they will find a way around it.

They probably knew from your ip address I guess. I don't if you can tell where someone lives from it.


Looking for someone to jam with? PM me if you are.

True, but there would have been reasonable delays between you emailing Cas, Cas emailing the contest host, them emailing back etc.

People do win them, I never try, but people do.

The late Casualty01 once told me, or rather the chat, that he was giving the prize to a recognized UG name, because he wanted it to be someone that actually came here.

Indeed, the guy who actually won didn't respond to emails, so Cas had to pick another user, and he figured he'd give it to a regular rather than a random name.

One of the chat regulars won an XBOX not too long ago.


See.

Cas also once told me that there are roughly 3000 people enter each contest, sometimes that reaches around 10 000 if it's a big contest.
