Well it appears that even the 1st re-draw winner still hasn't responded yet, so I replied to your comment about that, where you ask who wants it (Ronald Smith on Facebook). Seems a few others have done so as well. I can't believe people would enter and not claim their prize when they win it.

Can I have it please? I'm building a new pc and the only parts I don't have are the motherboard and cpu. Pleeease. I already had to decide between putting food on the table for my kids or a good graphics cards. Now that my children have died of starvation I have nothing else left to decide on.

yup...

I'm trying to hook someone up big time and have struck out over 10 time now. I sent a notice to a new person 6 hours ago and still no response. A free Z77 board and 8GB of memory is pretty sweet and people are missing out. Makes me wonder why people aren't responding. Never had this big of an issue giving stuff away.

Some of these people could be the victims of Facebooks' changeover to timeline and not understanding the new privacy provisions. I'm still on the old format being a staunch holdout, and so far have not fallen prey to the new layout... *crosses fingers on that* .

Also, these people must not have joined via their friends' shares on Facebook, or those friends would have been on the horn to them to give them a heads up, so you gotta wonder where they originally came from and where they went :?

I just now saw the private message in Facebook that I got from Nate back on the 19th of June. I dont understand how I missed it considering I check Facebook daily. I wonder if it has something to do with receiving a message from someone not in my contacts? It put the message in an "other" folder under messages and didnt notify me for some reason. Oh well, here's hoping. I sure could use this board to build my folding rig.

Well that sucks :( Exactly, if you receive a message from someone not in your friends list then it will go in messages/other and you will not get an email about it.

Need to have Email address in addition to contest entries to avoid this problem...
Trying to contact a winner via Facebook is a no no anyways and will only lead to problems in the future.
