It's a UK based forum, many forums operate own-country only competitions?

Great, they removed my reply instead of just editing it. Thank you Bit-Tech.

What I meant to say, now that I have calmed down and am far more civilised, is of course:

Thank you for presenting us with the opportunity of winning all of these goodies. Could you atleast not make it very clear in the sub-headline of the article that the competition is for UK users only?
I am only slightly bothered by the fact that your competitions are UK only when you have such a large international userbase. What annoys me the most is how it is presented in the second to last line of the article.

They don't even have a sub-headline for the article. Besides, pretty much every competition like this has T&Cs you need to be aware of, which are usually placed at the end of an article and not in the headline. The article itself is only a few paragraphs long, so you only have yourself to blame if you didn't bother to read it properly.

It's in the terms & conditions, which you'd be foolish not to read.

By the way, I've voted and I'm pleased to see quite a range of options on some questions. I often buy hardware from unusual places (Amazon, Play, etc.) so it's good to see those put in.

The image on the main page looks like CPC & Bic due to the placement of the comments link.



I thought this must be the awards for the best modded biro.... I have one bound in elastic bands so if I drop it, it bounces straight back up.

In the 'Best game developer' I had to go Other >Dice ...as they're not listed.

Is it expected that if you want to vote Dice you actually have to vote EA?

I'd rather like to come second in this one;o)
