Just in case Onkyo have any bots scouring the Internet, a couple of 818's for a competition would go down well Blum 3

I think of late we have been adopting other strategies – with some degree of success – to drive traffic to the site.

So Gel, you're missing that frustrating feeling of not knowing the winners of the latest competition?

Or seeing the winning goodies on sale on eBay within hours of the announcement? Wink

I don't think we've actively dropped them as in 'there will never be a competition again'; it's rather that we just haven't run one for a while.
