Why does everyone pick on mnementh?
I wonder who's won the most, anyway? ...probably mnementh!



When I first started lurking at woot, it seemed that mnementh won something every week.

mnementh actually keeps track of who has won the most prize money. Some time ago, he would claim that so-and-so had actually won more money, and that he had only won first prize once.

And we pick on mnementh because he is the source of all evil. (Namely recursive Hasselhoff pictures).

I just got my PayPal action as well. And that's for this past week's contest!

I've personally never had to complain about the $$ stuff. Maybe it's because I welcomed my woot overlords, or I'm incredibly lucky, i dunno.

Thanks for the quick turnaround JT and folk! Woot!

Y'all got winnings from Dec. contests already? I'm jealous.

I won #46, sent an unread (if you believe the icon & page view numbers) PM to Jason Toon in November 14th with my PayPal address, then an unanswered email to Woot! in mid-December, and then last week, a second (as of now) unread PM.

Nothing yet.

I'm in the same boat, MMorgan, I've heard nothing from Woot since I won #45. :-(

Yep, I'm still waiting from contest #43. I figure there must be forces at work that I simply can't comprehend. Not wanting to be a rock in anyone's shoe (it seldom makes a person walk any faster) I'm just waiting.

Jason, please forgive the eleven or so PM's.

Happy New Year, Woot crew.

Got payment today for #46, also after a polite email. I'd imagine Jason Toon gets 3.6 billion PM's a day... perhaps Woot should consider setting up an email address specifically for contests.

Anyway, thanks Woot!, I appreciate it.

Waiting for the 2nd monkey since Dec. 19, 'o5.

Didja award me the 2nd monkey, right before Christmas, knowing I'd never see either?

Cuz if you did... well... that's just plain wrong.

Ah, the good old days.

I just loved this Title and thought it needed to be bumped up to the top of the contest posting heap.

A little Christmas cheer for those of us waiting for some news from Toon?

Or a little reminder that things have hit the fan recently?

If we owe you money and you don't see your name above, PM me with your Paypal info. I'm really sorry this whole thing has turned into such a SNAFU, but once we clear these old payments out, everything should run pretty smoothly from now on.



Yay! I just PM'd you my paypal address: I'm due $70 from contest's 226 and 230.

I'm happy to hear that the contest will live on ... I finally got around to reinstalling my photoshop the other day, so I'm eager to get chopping again.

Unfortunately it would seem that Mr. Toon doesn't really care about the revolt he caused with not announcing winners for and not paying previous winners in the photoshop contests.

I for one have stopped purchasing anything from Woot until the contest situation is fully resolved. Woot is a business that started a contest. I would be shocked if it is not illegal for them to have a contest and honor their payouts in a timely fashion.

So, in the mean time, I will just pay a bit more elsewhere for the products. No sense in purchasing from a company that cannot honor their commitment to their most loyal customers/fans.
