Many people were very pushing about things after winning (demanding tracking numbers, wanting specific shipping companies and even wanting different colors on the items they won). Most of the winnings were shipped from the companies sponsoring the prizes, so I had little control over much of that. Back in 2011 I spent nearly $750 on shipping out of my pocket for the contest, so it can be costly.
To top that all off, many of the forum winners here turned out to be staff on other hardware review sites. So, the contests that were meant to go to our readers and regular folks were going to other review site staff members. Just felt kinda pointless at the end there.
If you or any of our forum members are willing to help run and organize contests I'd be happy to bring them back and hook up those that help with some hardware or something of the sort in return for helping out. This goes to sbohdan or any other forum member that doesn't work for another review site.
