Results of First Anniversary Contest.

by Pikkdogs ~ January 13th, 2011.

A big hello to everyone from Omarnation.  This is Pikkdogs here with a quick house cleaning article.

As most of you know, a few weeks ago we started our first contest to celebrate our first anniversary.  Now that the results are back, we can finally share them with all of our readers.

Ed and I were excited to run the contest, but unfortunately it did not go as well as we hoped.  We didn’t get half the entries as we thought we would.  But, we still did get some entries and got to  connect with a few of our readers.  Here are the winners of the contest:

1. Evan C.-winner of a Pokemon TCG Tin

2. Alan T.-winner of a 2010 Play Pokemon Energy Pack

3. Myles D.-winner of a Ho-oh Legend.

The winners have all been contacted and the prizes are on their way.

Since we did not get the amount of entries that we thought we would, we would like to know why.  This input would be very helpful in making our website better, especially if we ever decided to have another contest.  Are you guys interested in contests?  Was this specific contest not interesting enough?  Was the contest ran at an inconvenient time?  What would you like to see in another contest?  If you could leave some of your thoughts on these questions in the comment box Ed and I would greatly appreciate it.

Thank You all and congratulations to the winners.

    It involved a lot of reading and math, and I’m not good at either of those things.

    Congrats to the winners; Alan T. runs the league I go to here in Ann Arbor!

    I didn’t submit an entry for the contest for 2 reasons:

    1) I felt that as a contributor to the site it might not be the best thing if I had won a prize (favoritism and all that).

    2) The post in which the contest was embedded was a long read, and when I got to the contest itself and it had something like 20 steps, I said to myself – I don’t really have time for this – so I moved on.

    I think a lot of people (Me) are just to lazy to go and research all these things.

    It sounds like the contest was just too involved. When Pikk first talked with me about it, I wondered the same thing. Then, I considered it more and realized that we were talking about a group of people that obsess over a kid’s game. I figured it would be perfect for that sort of geek. I guess I was wrong.

      You obviously didn’t take into account the laziness of the average geek :)
