I think that if they announce a contest on TA then they're obligated to announce the winner on this site as well as any other social media they promoted it on. Lots of times they announce the winner on Facebook but don't have the decency to return here to inform the members who entered

So it's not first time when it happened
Whenever that happens please report it to the mods so we can contact the devs directly or possibly ban them depending on the reasons.

We normally delete tons of spam, shill accounts from the forums but cant track every single competition.

Even if you think a competition 'might' be suspicious its better to report it than not so we can look into it and check. Most of the time its probably nothing but its best to check if you arent sure so we can sort something out

They're might be something suspicious about the gentlemen promoting all his magazines.. Draw date for his contest was yesterday at 10pm.. I checked in here last night 20 times to see if a winner was announced.. Nothing.. If this is another one of these cases you guys have a serious problem..

Give him a bit of time yet. I must admit it's 'amazing' that many people seem to love all 3 of his magazines, what are the chances of that eh ?! To me fake reviews (to enter competitions) are just as bad as any devs tricking people to get reviews.

Some contest here takes 1-2 weeks before they announce a winner. They were probably busy or something. Just give them some time.

Thanks, these things are hit or miss but I'd rather miss and spoke my mind than sold out and still lost
