Well, let me just tell you my story ..
It began with the "HP Dragon Contest Giveaway" , in the month of May this year.. , well here at 'geekstogo' they gracefully offer 2nd prizes (wich was a Full Retail Windows Vista Ultimate).
Well, i enter the contest, wich consisted in sending a picture with the geekstogo Logo printed, in a way that described this website.. so i took a picture of me carrying a lot of computer books in a workers 'truck'.
I got an email from the Administrator, telling me that i won !! .. i couldn't believe it!! , never have i won anything ...
so i gave him my details.. and he nicely reply to me.. and all i had to do was wait for my windows vista to get to my mail .
Well, May, June , July, August, September Past by.. and nothing.. no prize for me .. i decided to email again the site administrator to tell me if i did something wrong (with my address) cause the price didn't arrive, if something was wrong.. he reply to me, telling me that he did NOT was the person in charge of delivering the prizes.. but he nicely forward my email to the person , who he told me it was the site owner..
So, here i am again.. September has past, October, Now. November.. and no prize.. bye bye Vista Retail..
Why? , why didin't receive my prize?, they told me i have won.. i'm very dissapointed, i'm sad.. not because i didn't get the Vista.. but because i never have won ANYTHING.. and back in time when i receive the Email from geekstogo telling me i had Won.. i Felt very HAPPY!!. i couldn't believe it!!.. i told all my friends!!.. but now??
Well.. i wish this doesn't happend to anyone.. yes, maybe there was a paper error somewhere.. but.. i think.. that at least deserved an email.. with a note telling that there wasn't going to be a prize after all.. that's all i ask now.
Making me wait for the mail.. for almost 6 months.. i think .. its very bad. people don't deserve that treath..
I don't know if this Topic will be erased, so members don't se it.. i hope not. i'm not asking for a prize anymore.
just, that people could be more error free in their processes.
as i final note, i don't think i'll be entering anymore contest, not just here.. but in the internet business..
i'm not judging anyone, don't have that power as a human, just.. people.. if you win a contest, please dont get to entusiastic.. until you really now that you have won.
have a nice weeekend. and hope to see you soon.. to all.
