    Well, the contest specs did say to participate in the forum and join in the discussions and a winner would be picked based on participation. I guess they picked random people first, then went by their posting.

    I was on here during every minute of spare time between working and taking care of my family. I admit that I am very disappointed but somehow things will work out and I will be able to get one for my son one way or another. I enjoyed "talking" to you and hope you will be able to get one too.

    It clearly said the case winners would be picked at random and then from those people the main winner would be picked by participation. It was your choice to stay on the internet 24/7 and your initial post in here and your response in the other thread was quite rude and childish. Nice to see you edited it and gave a congrats but just based on your reaction I am sure there are many people that are glad you didn't win. Like I said in the other thread, be gracious or don't say anything, you're just embarrassing yourself! Lets try to keep this positive for the winner DARK_BLU!

    Haha I wouldn't have spent the 500 on another 4S. I would have put it towards another device.
    But I didn't think I would win regardless.
    Congrats!

    Congrats to Dark_Blu!

    And I'm honestly a little taken back reading all these people who are either complaining or questioning why they didn't win.

    When did this contest stipulate that winner would be the one who posted the most?
    When did this contest obligate the prize to someone who helped more than another person?
    When did this contest ever identify the winner as one who is a regular on the board?

    ...NONE of these things were a guarantee. And you guys have the nerve to whine, moan and complain about a contest from a website that doesn't even have to correspond with you (much less give away ANYTHING)? What a freakin' joke. Many of you acting like a bunch of 5 year olds who didn't get a toy on someone else's birthday, lol...i'd be ashamed of myself.

    You guys act like you worked for it or something...lmao...get over yourselves. It clearly speaks worlds to the fact that you only participated and posted to win a prize, and not to be a part of the community.

    Anyways, congratulations to the winners! Dark_Blu, hopefully they'll have a write up of your prize with pics and stuff so we can razz you a bit and see a happy new iPhone owner in full HD glory!

    I guess my post was more a reflection on everyone who only contributed to win the prize...whether they spoke out or not. We had just unreal traffic in this forum, and then it just died this morning. And while yes, those speaking out were limited, LOTS of people were BSing just for a prize and not to participate in the community for any other reason...

    Not trying to be harsh here, but do you expect anything more than that? When a contest is held people do what they have to in order to win. Usually nothing more.

    I understand your retort, and yes, it's an obvious guarantee that you'll have an overwhelming influx of traffic that simply want to win and have no desire to be a part of the community legitimately...i guess my rant was a 2 part issue really, and perhaps saying "all these people" was a little generic, but you still got the point. Im still shocked at the pettiness from the couple that thought they "deserved" it, and i guess you could say a little annoyed that you had a billion people posting a billion posts, acting like they wanted to help and discuss and blah blah blah...and then bam, contest done, no win...never hear from them again (until another iPhone is given away).

    Not shocked at that aspect, just ranting...its raining and I'm stuck in the office while my cruiser gets worked on and i have NOTHING to do, hahaha...

    Scam. I want an investigation on how the winner was chosen. Clearly this was bought. TiPb has some explaining to do!
