    Claim your Prizes!!

    I shouldn't really have to be saying this, but all of a sudden people have stopped bothering to claim their prizes from the BeoWorld Prize Draw..  Yes, i know - it's crazy!

    We didn't have one single unclaimed prize for 9 draws, and from there on we have seen 2, 3 and then 4 prizes unclaimed.. The current draw has had 3 emails returned, leaving 70% of prizes unclaimed so far. I used to get emails within hours of the draw - now it's not the case!

    I go to a great deal of effort to enable the draw to happen, and without sounding like a moaner - it's not really my job to hassle and chase people in order to give them their free prizes!!  I assume some emails don't get through due to spam filtration perhaps, but would it be too much to ask to click a button once a month to open the prizes tab and see if you've won anything?

    Anyway - this isn't a moan, i really do want to give everybody their prizes and make them happy BeoWorlders - but i simply haven't got time to be chasing members and bothering them to be doing something they should be doing themselves already.

    I am adding to the T's and C's that all prizes not claimed in 90 days (that's three months - which is ample) will be re-entered in a future draw. I think that's fair.

    If anyone would like to check the last draw 'winner list', it's on the 'PRIZES' section of the main site at the bottom of the page, and if you would like to search previous draws, simply enter the month name and the words 'prize draw' after it. The search function will find the draw immediately, and you can read through it at your leisure.

    I do send emails at the end of every draw to all the winners, and even 'cc' a copy to Peter as back-up.  All i can do is inform the winners on their registered email address - the rest is up to you guys. I do want you all to have your prizes - you deserve them for being Gold Members and supporting BeoWorld !!!

    Hi there Lee!

    Don't worry, you are not moaning at all. I fully understand your frustration. Of course we must expect the gold members to check out if they have won, I always follow the draws with great excitement every month myself.

    I'm sorry that people are not responding, and I mean that's the least they can do in respect for all the effort you guys put into this website and the faboulus prize draw!!!

    Don't let them destroy your feelings for the prize draw, and be sure that's there are lots of us beoworlders who love it and just can't wait until the next draw!!!!

    Keep ut your fantastic work!!!!

    Re: Claim your Prizes!!

    Lee, I fully understand you, and I don't understand the winners that don't claim there prizes. But here might be an explication:

    In the June PD, I noticed there was a winner from Luxembourg and I checked in the members list who he was. There I noticed, that he had registrated in 08/07 and has been online for the last time in 11/07. I imagine that a member, that shows that much interest for the site/ forum has not given his principle email-adress to beoworld and therefor doesn't even know that he has won.

    Whose fault is this? I don't know. Beoworld needs every member, even those who don't claim their prizes. But if you need to get rid of some unclaimed prizes, just send them to members that have not won so far... Wink

    I think a personal message should do the trick, there is no spam filtering. It also notifies the sender through email but they would get it 2 different ways.

    Cheers

    Hey, nobody can destroy my feelings for the Prize Draw - and i know there are plenty of people that love it, and that includes me - even though i can't win anything!

    All i am asking is that people who pay their Gold Membership check to see if they have won.  We currently have 525 Gold Members, and if we give away 10 prizes a month over 12 months, that makes 120 Prizes between 525 people. Now, i'm not a mathematician - but that makes pretty stupidly good odds of winning - so i would suggest people actually check the draw results every month!!!

    Don't worry guys, i'm not on a 'downer' - i just really enjoy giving the prizes to the winners, and it's a little frustrating when the prizes are not claimed, hence this thread. I will not raise this issue again, promise. Smile

    If any of the notification emails were returned it is because I have  been entering the prize draws under loads of additional user id's.  If you bundle up all the unclaimed prizes and send them to me, that will solve your problem! Devil

    Rest assured that we are many who follow the draw and are excited to know what you have come up with for the next draw. Especially it is interesting to se what older/classic equipment you have found for the next draw.

    Ceep on the good work, spreading B&O-equipment to the people.

    Re: Claim your Prizes!!

    Maybe the winners don't need the prizes? I think its crazy not to check! A nice B&O for free, no B&O fanatic would let that go surely!

    Re: Claim your Prizes!!

    Hi Lee

     

    I suggest you make a new rule:-hold the prizes in 2 or 3 months and then if no one has claimed them, draw them again amongst the other members.
