    Why did 3 of the 4 site supporter winners not have 1ff accounts?

    Badly thought out?

    Not a case of badly thought out. It's actually impossible to know whether a Facebook/Twitter entrant has an account with us until they tell us - so unresponsive winners just means we can't know, at least until X amount of time has passed... at which point we can pretty much assume as fact that they don't. Site supporters runner up prize are easily solved- that aspect can be redrawn from the forum-only entrants.

    Inb4 "only let registered users enter then". No, covered this. Wasn't the point of this contest, nor would it have achieved what we wanted and had such a significant impact on our social channels - which was the whole point of the contest in the first place.

    Future contests aimed at only forum members will be much easier to regulate & get right first time but this also needs looking at because broader contests like this will happen again too as the idea & benefits behind them vs a members-only draw is completely different.

    My understanding was that the 4 runners-up spots were for people who replied to this thread only.

    No, there's no cash alternative. :thumbs:

    Not that it matters when they haven't tried to claim. I'll give all winners until midnight Sunday noon to get in touch at which point we'll decide what to do with the unclaimed prizes.

    I did announce this and get the details from LeylandWhite (Address wise) but it was one of the posts unfortunately lost in the data restoration.
