    Default Subscription and Competition Prizes - Where are the Winners?

    So I got around to compiling a list of all the prizes offered in various forms in the magazine for the last 12 issues and since I still can't find any winners posted on the site as advertised I thought I would put that list here. Prize values were taken from the magazine in which they were offered.

    Subscription Prizes

    #211 & #212 - 2 trips to Fiji - $7300 each
    #213 - AMD upgrade package - $900
    #214 - 3 Starcraft 2 collectors bundles - $700 each
    #215 & #216 - Home Theatre Package - $9795
    #217 - Everyone gets a T-Shirt :}
    #218 & Tech Special : 10/10 Gaming-ready PC from PC Case Gear - $1499
    #219 & #220 - 2 trips to Port Douglas - $8400 each
    #221 - Everyone gets a T-Shirt :}
    #222 & #223 & #224 - Trip to Hawaii - $12000 (open until February '14)
    #223 - Gigabyte P25W Gaming Laptop - $2099
    #224 - Everyone gets a War of the Vikings early access steam code.

    Competitions started up again in April Issue #214, listed here as a matter of interest. Bold listings are valued over $100 and should have been posted on the site.

    Issue #224 - It appears that these type of "competitions" have been discontinued!

    I know there are several forum goers here who have expressed an interest in knowing the winners of prizes, probably because they entered them. I wouldn't mind seeing a list of all winners of all prizes (even those valued under $100) posted on the site, even if it's just in a comment in the relevant issues feedback thread, but at this stage I would settle for the advertised posting of the greater than $100 value prize winners.
    Curiosity can be a real bitch sometimes - and I want to win something dammit :}

    Thoughts?

    Not good. There's probably been a heap of editorial changes so no one person can be blamed, but it's a poor way to treat readers. Even taking 2mins to fill out a form for a non-existent contest is a waste of time.
