    O dear.
    Imagine how he must feel when he does check in and he finds out he won the turbo's and lost them again.
    I do feel for him.
    But, careless non the less. Foot in mouth moment for sure.
    The king is dead, long love the king.

    Congrats to E90SoFlo!

    Holy $#@!.

    @Sticky didn't send him a PM informing him he won? The notifications system is great but it's not a like a PM that pops up a dialog box when you log on. It's very easy to overlook the fact that you have new notifications. I would be pissed.

    Yeah, like when you just realize the DEA is swarming your multimillion dollar grow operation and you are inside harvesting your crop.

    The rules were clear. Read post1 on page 1:
    The winner will be drawn at random at a time and date of the administrator's choosing after 1/15/13.
    Nowhere in the rules was stated that a PM would be sent.
    The idea of course was to create traffic. It was not, and was not intended to be, a fire and forget kind of contest.
    Also, he had a bunch of notifications.
    Hard to miss...
    All he had to do was visit the site and log in, and he would have known.
    But he didn't do that.

    If you can't take the time to check to see if you won free $#@!, not sure if you deserve it. What's next, our responsiblity to book a mechanic to install them or arrange alternative trans for him?

    People can feel bad for him, but it is what it is. I'd rather someone win that is active in the community. If you don't check the thread or forum and miss the claim timeline, it's your own fault. I'm glad that rule was in place, kinda like how you have to claim a lottery ticket, they don't chase after you if you win...

    The rules are what they are, but to say he isn't active is not true. He may not have 1420.9 rep points, but he did manage 8 posts yesterday, and 13 in the last week. Last activity was 9:41 AM today. Ironically the last post was in the Vargas Stage 2 and 3 pricing thread.

    I have to say though, I managed to check back to this thread and find out who the winner was the day of the drawing, and a week is long enough to figure it out as long as you do check the thread. I still empathize, however. He missed a hell of an opportunity.

    I don't know what to say to that.
    He received 3 mentions from me allone when I posted the result tables. All participants got those (sorry if I scared anyone Click here to enlarge). That should have been a wake up call to at least check the thread, right?

    I feel bad for him, but Im still really happy that I continued to check this thread.

    Hopefully I can get this all set up and go S3, obviously that is a long process considering I am still a AT. But hopefully it all works out.

    what a winner and then looser... crap. I wouldn't have known unless I got a PM. I unsubstribed to this thread long ago due to the disinterest in random chat and people putting in their name. I never check my notifications, cause if you don't do it regularly they just pile up... I just view the actual threads I have an interest in or get updated by email. With a PM, I can read it in email. The @function does not send an email to my knowledge.

    Probably because to respond to them he would have to look at the precise obscure portion of the page to notice them.

    Well, the rules were in place to help ensure an "active" member received the turbos.

    But, I'm really beginning to think Sered simply did not want the turbos.

    It's a contest, not a charity. It's not my job to hand deliver FREE parts to the guy. It's designed to get more activity and participation and if asking to check the thread is too much then they should go to someone who does. SIMPLE AS THAT.

    Sucks for you then. A little effort to get almost a couple grand is too much these days for people?

    It's highlighted in blue, not obscure at all.
