    Sorry we forgot the UK is the only country with a decent postal-system and the rest of the world is stuck in neobarbarism...:eyebrow:

    If you're motherfirm is a GmbH it's probably german...they have been seen with a package and a stamp, you now?

    First of all, thanks for the competition! The whole thread is too negative, and you are now taking flak for giving out freebies. Rest assured that your effort and investment is very much appreceated :thumb:

    Having said that, you should understand that by joining bit-tech, you have very much joined a global community. While I understand that the support forum is limited to giving support to UK readers, this forum offers you a chance to communicate on a global scale.
    It's always frustrating for us non-UK people that 90% of the competitions on bit (bar the Mod of the Month compos) are UK-only, so opening up this competition globally would give you instant brownie points within the whole community as "the company that gets it".

    I believe that extra credit should be well worth the shipping and possibly handling cost. I could think of solutions, but so can you, so i'll leave that to you, but i do ask that you reconcider. :dremel:

    Dear all

    Thank you for the comments both negative & positive about the way that the competition is being run. I think that for the next competition sponsored by Nanopoint UK maybe we can reach out as far as Europe but only have one chance for delivery, if delivery fails it will be up to the winner to collect the prize from their local depot. However the goods will be returned after a week or so and if this is the case a new winner will be chosen that is UK based.

    I'd be more then happy with that! Thanks for reaching out, and responding so well :)

    Too bad you cannot go global, but again, it's really not fitting to make demands from somebody who is handing out freebees :)

    How about emailing the winner, please provide your phone number for the courier orde as you have won the competition.

    I don't want to be spammed by adds and call centers calling to sell stuff...

    Doh! We have to wait to NEXT competition. Oh well - at least that's positive action for you (even though the head office is in germany and they need to ship it to the UK office - I wonder if they have a telephone??) much less than the other companies have given us a chance.
    Thanks Xtrafresh for taking to time to write something positive and for nathan and his positive response.

    You made me laugh with your last comment! Maybe we can ship from Germany for some European parcels, we will have to look into this!

    No, those numbers are given to the editorial team. We ring them randomly after drunken nights out to make jokes about the persons mum. It's great fun. But no, no we don't sell stuff.

    Wow someone who registered but never posts on the forums won...

    I wish these contests would only be open to regular contributors on the forums :sigh:
