    CONGRATS TO ALL THE WINNERS :D:w00t: And well done to the mods and admin for organising this very elaborate competition!!! Unfortunately I wasn't really able to participate as I've been quite busy lately. The problem with these ongoing comps is that if you have to drop out for a few days due to other committments you're really out of the running, since its so close up top. For that reason it was good that there were mini contests that anyone could win prizes in. I didn't pay attention to these much as I wrongly assumed they were only for points - next time I'll try to pay attention :o
  • geo78
    thanks everyone for the congrats and for the competition. it was hard for me at the end as everyone seemed to be angry with me for providing what i thought and i still think were constructive comments, but i treated everything as missundertandings...and even if some people attacked me, i did not respond with the same tone or i just ignored it as i think this forum should be a friendly forum. i just want to say that i voted cold only on two ocassions during Leg5 and those occasions were for the dominos pizzas delivered deals. i admit i acted a bit harsh, but i was a bit annoyed that because of the flow of unuseful comments from some member (unuseful in my opinion), users and also the poster of those deals could not find the better deal that was posted before (http://www.buckscoop.com.au/forums/showthread.php?t=8400) and ended up paying more for the same meal. while the usefulness of a comment is a matter of personal opinion, i don't think my cold voting for those two deals can be contested. anyway, it was good fun and i hope those people that are still angry with me will revise their attitude towards me.
  • geo78
    i found the tees very cool...maybe we can put the winning picture on the back or the names of the winners? lol. good work. i'm looking forward to the shopping bags as well
  • golfwidow
    Big Congrats Keeys, Geo and Crafty! :) It was great fun so also a HUGE thank you to all that put it together AKA Nod, LP and Admin. You all do a fantastic job. I always look forward to checking in here each day. Also thanks for my pic winning. I was this close to not picking that one but now am glad i did.
  • admin EDITOR
    yea - thanks to all for participating. Dont anyone be thanking me - it was the others here who put the work into it. Was a bit of a marathon comp but I personally think a good one. I guess every comp will have aspects that are good and bad. One of the things with the dialogue part of it was to get you all talking away and there really was some great stuff in lots of the threads - plenty of dialogue that took a deal posting and made it better either through alternatives or tips and tricks.
  • nod
    :D No need to thank us. You guys all did a great job. It all got a little heated in the end .. that is what comps can do ....but I believe that every single Buckscooper that took part in this comp made an awesome contribution to their site :D So keep it up I say :w00t:
  • nod
    I will be ordering the tees later today once I have all the sizes :) And I will add some bags into the order ... now I need to think up something so that we can hand out some prizes... though might have a rest for a bit :D
  • nod
    Sizes : S, M, L, XL, 2XL, 3XL, 4XL
  • Keeys
    Oh I'm so hopelessat picking sizes...are they true to sizr is a L like a normal L or something like a one size fits most asian 10 lol I ordered a Michael Buble tshirt in a L and its so big I wear it as a nighty on the other hand I ordered a L in something else and its fir my 10yr old son lol
  • craftykiwi
    I have the same problem - am tempted to go for M but if it's too small then maybe the L would be better. Would rather wear it myself than have to give it away. If the sizes came with chest dimensions that would help immensely.
  • craftykiwi
    nod;46298
    Sizes : S, M, L, XL, 2XL, 3XL, 4XL
    With all those XL sizes I'm guessing the other sizes might be on the smaller side. Never heard of 2XL, 3XL or 4XL before.
  • golfwidow
    Bags would be cool! Also bumper stickers: "beep if your a BUCKSCOOPER" :w00t:

  • craftykiwi
    nod;46378
    Any ideas for games ... got prizes now :whistling: :D
    The Bingo is always fun and being just luck means everyone's on a level playing field, not that I object to the trivia games either.
  • craftykiwi
    nod;46378
    Thanks Lilpretzel but you were a fantastic help and sorted some awesome games yourself :) :flowers: :D
    Surely Lilpretzel could get a small prize then too - like a bag. You all do an awesome job and don't know where you & Nod find all the time to run all these comps and then sort out all the results/winners.
  • nod
    LOL Lilpretzel will be receiving a tee and possibly bag if she is a good girl :D
  • nod
    I want to finalise the voucher prizes today or tomorow at the latest. Please all winners make sure that you have sent me an email addy and your choice of store for the vouchers. On offer: Latest Buy Deals Direct OO.com.au Dstore Play4me Some of the stores have a min for the vouchers eg Dstore the smallest is $20 so please check the site to make sure I can fill your order :w00t:
  • nlafanclub
    Just wanted to say the shirt & bag designs look great, nod - oh, and well done to all those who won & all those who tried :) There were some great deals about during the comp. Still some great ones coming through now!
  • nod
    Thanks Nlafanclub :) I have ordered some to stick in the Buckscoop "prize cupboard" :D
  • nod
    Ruby darling I have no idea from whom you want your vouchers :) Could you PM me please :) All the vouchers should be received by tomorrow.. well except Ruby :D
  • Keeys
    Thanks nod :) ok now I need deals direct to have a postage special for me :D
  • nod
    LOL not that we ask for much :D Maybe if they were inundated with emails from Buckscoopers asking for a free shipping code they might be generous :D
  • nod
    The Tees have finally arrived :w00t: and they look great Also got a load of the tote bags for the prize cupboard so now all we need is some more comps :D
  • Keeys
    Guess what arrived today????? Not tried it on yet ;)
  • nod
    Oz post took their time then. Let us know how it fits Keeys :D
  • Keeys
    our mail is always slow here :(
  • craftykiwi
    Mine arrived too. Many thanks. Should have known it'd be too big for me but hate trying to pick sizes and rest of family suggested the 'L' just in case. But fits hubby perfectly so he'll have to be your billboard instead of me.
  • leny
    Oooh the shirts. :D

    leny;50590

    Is there an echo??? (See my last post under Nubrella.) Or as the kids would say 'Snap' ! Or as I would say "Great minds think alike" .:whistling:
  • golfwidow
