Man oh man... This must be an ass load of work for you. Hats off to you for getting it done and doing it in an awesome job. Maybe next year you should get some help."I will if I am free" Maybe get a team together... Santa has elfs to help him. You should get some too.

I will still take that copy of Warhammer 40k off your hands if you still have it... just a side note.

@HellknightLeon: Yup, at this rate I wouldn't be surprised to see Gerstmas roll over into next Gerstmas

Yeah, I seem to be getting much slower responses this year, than last and when I eventually *do* hear from people, it takes a little extra time to let them go back and pick from what's still available. If we do this a third year, I will probably just put up a site with a simple interface where people will have to enter all their information (steam info, choices, personal email address, etc) so it's all quickly accessible and I don't have to go back for anything.

Oh well, we learn and improve, I guess. :D

Same here :(.

#509 Posted by Jayzilla (2571 posts) -

or just do a "snooze you lose" thing on next year. not fair to you branthog or the people waiting. if they can't be bothered to get back to ya, do they actually care?

#510 Posted by Subjugation (4740 posts) -

@Branthog: I think it would save you a lot of headache if you set a restriction on the window of time for response. That way if one (or a few) individual(s) turn into a problem and take forever to respond, they just forfeit the winning. As long as it is reasonable, I don't see anything wrong with it.

#511 Posted by ripelivejam (4765 posts) -

didn't think about it but i guess it makes sense that you have to wait for responses before doing the next round of giveaways :doh:

#512 Posted by Ghostiet (5304 posts) -

I'd like to confirm that I received Resonance and thank @branthog and whoever donated the game.

#513 Edited by Branthog (5596 posts) -

Reposting from before the GB move:

  • Gordo789 - Warhammer Dawn of War II
  • Ghostiet - Resonance
  • BulletproofMonk - Legend of Grimrock
  • ripelivejam - Serious Sam 3
  • Ducksworth - Awesomenauts

PS: Where the hell is the First and Last button on the forum threads?!?!?!?!

Also.. great.. can no longer open multiple pages of a forum thread at once. CTRL+CLICK on the page numbers at the top/bottom of a thread simply forces it to load that page... not load it in a separate tab. That... makes this a lot more work (going through to find people's wanted list).

*sigh*

#514 Posted by Ghostiet (5304 posts) -

@branthog: What browser are you using? I'm on Opera and Chrome - both CTRL and SHIFT + click works fine in both browsers.

In Chrome, both CTRL+CLICK and SHIFT+CLICK on the page number just loads that page number in the existing tab. (For example, if you're on page 5 of this thread and you CTRL+CLICK on page 8, it'll load page 8 in the same tab, as if you had simply just clicked it).

#516 Posted by Ghostiet (5304 posts) -

@branthog: Weird, it's working completely fine for me.

@branthog: I assume Gerstmas is over, or was the topic merely unpinned from the forums?

I think it was unpinned, because a couple people came in and started entering their names for the drawing, like a month after entries had been closed.

#548 Posted by Branthog (5596 posts) -

Thanks for the Broken Sword Trilogy.

It's weird, but I read that in a sarcastic tone. As if I was supposed to reply "sorry, I should have fixed the Sword Trilogy before giving it to you". Hehehehe. :D

Anyone else have a bugged inbox that keeps showing a ton of messages in it even though it's empty? I do.

If I end up winning something and don't reply, it will likely be because I was unaware I even had mail in the inbox. I do check on a daily basis though.

I'm not sure. I have over 800 unread messages, but they are actually legitimately unread. :/

I am also not getting email notifications of new posts, either.
