The winner of the sticker contest is Star_Cleaver! Congratulations! I will mail you the prize pack on Monday.
Thanks for everyone who sent in an order. Not to many people actually entered, about 30. So your chances of winning were pretty good! I will be sending out all the sticker orders on Monday as well. So if you have been waiting, your wait is almost over!

Bah. I no longer like you.
Arghghghghg. #;-}> Half of you were joking, but come on. Did you all just decide to ignore Wade's sentence in the VERY FIRST POST of this topic that said only 30 people entered the contest?!?! Only 30 people bought stickers and entered the contest in the whole month or so since it started... that's approximately a 3.33% chance for each entry. Most contests do NOT yield that kind of odds.
I figured there wouldn't be that many people entering, even with the prize package, but A) I'm sticking to my "too lazy to order stickers until it could be done through paypal or credit card" attitude for now... and B) the prize package wasn't quite cool enough to get me off my lazy ass and order stickers the default way. #;-}>

aw come on now, does everyone have to hate on wade? so this starcleaver guy won one contest, so what? you guys dont have to be such sore losers.
It takes a 1 post newbie to sum it up. Good job, jumboshrimp, that's exactly right.

I didn't even enter the contest.
Which makes your attention-seeking protesting even more stupid, I suppose! #;-}>

What's your problem, SpecialK13?! You're congratulating him!? I hope he trips and breaks his shins! I'm not nice about losing! I spent $5 on stickers I haven't even gotten yet! Arg! I hope they do another one of these.I hope I win the Experience Points contest, but my chances are a lot smaller for that one. I'm sure 90% of the actual users on NG (not the ones who sign up and never use their accounts) deposite daily. But, seriously, Wade, if you guys did another one of these things, you'd get a lot more people, now that they know that this last contest was a 1/30 chance of winning.
There are tons of "actual" users of NG who haven't come to the site in more than a year. They have thousands of exp but don't use their accounts anymore. That, along with all the signups who did nothing, the alt accounts who don't get deposited for, etc. etc... means there are far less than 90% of accounts being deposited for.
And besides, even when it comes to ACTIVE and CURRENT users, not everyone deposits every single day. If you deposited 31 times in July, you are one of the few, the proud, the most likely to win the July Console Contest.
Because even with the contest in place, there are some people who don't know about it, and there are others who do but still forget to deposit or are on vacation or etc. etc. etc. So don't worry so much about your chances, you'd be depositing anyway, right? The only person I've heard say "I stopped depositing but now I'm going to do it again" is Tanner, who used to be even with Josh Bedn, but is now way behind him in exp.
