Are you sure it's not stuck in a laybe?
Just a quick one, do the winners need to get in touch with someone regarding claiming?

^ My mistake, thought you meant contact would be made by someone at What HiFi.
The competition was in October, is it worth trying to get in touch with someone or hold on for a bit longer?
Henley Designs got in touch earlier this week and have now sent the Olive 3HD. It's about to replace the bulky/noisy computer hooked up to the hifi with all my music stored on it, much more lounge friendly!
Really neat bit of kit, thanks WHF!
Great, hope you enjoy it

I'm more conflicted if there is just one prize*. But if there are multiple prizes going to one winner, I think no one expects you to actually want all of them, so selling some is fair.
*Though I have on occasion managed to beat my conscience into a bloody, compliant pulp.
Must admit, after nearly 5 months I'd started to loose faith but it's here and I have proof :grin: Yes I know units aren't meant to be stacked directly but its only temporary until house move in 10 days then will get everything set up in the lounge properly and escape the bedroom setup..
A few thoughts which no one is to rely on:
The skill element in competitions is used to avoid paid competitions (e.g. premium rate phone in crap) being deemed lotteries (which would get the promoters into very hot water). However, given that no payment is required to enter WHF competions (purchasing a magazine for the normal price doesn't count) I cannot see why the questions are necessary at all. Free prize draws could be used instead. Furthermore, I'm not aware of any law preventing prize draw or competition promoters from restricting entry, provided qualification is not by payment in the case of prize draws.
The UK only restriction serves a a purpose addtional to the one stated by Andrew above: It's a reasonably reliable way of ensuring that the gaming laws of another country cannot be applied with possibly unforeseen effects.
I would say that attracting the attention of these competition entering hobbyists / professionals is of no particular benefit to either WHF or the distributors / manufacturers. It might increase the traffic on the WHF website slightly, but I doubt it's commercially significant.
Yes, I know - I'm a really interesting bloke.
I guess some are soar losers
It happens in many communities that older members feel that they have more rights or must be the first to eat when the food is served. it is just a competition, like many others and as always the fortune is not for everyone.
I have followed the forum and WHF for a long time but I registered as a member just recently as I was in need for some technical advice. Forum and you dear members have been of
an immense help to me. Let the lucky ones enjoy their prizes. Our life wont get better if we will win some speakers. It wont solve any of our problems. I enetered the competition but I dont even think about it. I wont loose my sleep over it. Still have a life and friends :cheers:
Isn't it time this post was taken down as a "sticky" as the competition winners were announced over a year ago on Fri, Oct 28 2011, 8:45PM?
Just a thought!
Where does it show up as a 'sticky'?
