    Well either way it's probably not the BT guys fault.

    If it is a scam just to get your details then just don't ever buy KFA.


    Perhaps they're just going to take your names and other details and spam you later?

    Guys - I will chase this up tomorrow, as its does seem to be dragging .... KFA2 only supply the prize .. we do not control the comp or collect the data...

    Whoever stole the 460 in the Bit Tech office would have gotten away with it if it weren't for that pesky Graham Brown from KFA2!

    Sorry, bank holiday and general DI slowness - we're not running the competition through the bit-tech back end, so we need to talk to other people in the company and they're not quick at sending us the data of the entrants.

    Kathleen's got mixed up - she's talking about the GTX 480 comp. The 460 hasn't been drawn yet. We need to get the data from the puzzle from Dennis Interactive (DI) and pick a winner.

    However, she is right that we don't announce the winners publicly.

    Well whoever wins it definitely needs to tell us on here, so that we know the whole thing is over and done with.

    Well at least KFA have stopped getting any stick. They've done a decent enough thing and ended up looking a bit crap really! Poor fellas.

    sounds like a scam. Remember the illegal lotteries in your neighborhood. You fill in a number and pay 10€ but you never know who the winner was. A year later the person selling the tickets comes around the corner in a brand new 7 series Beamer...

    I could also offer competition:

    "DUAL CARD COMPO"
    grand price two GTX480 in SLI. Yes two cards!

    Answer this simple question: What is my nickname!

    Reply here and next week I will pick a random winner of the right answer, but you never know who got the cards. could be santa or even god (if he/she really exists)

    ya seriously this is becoming a joke... I mean I know its a free contest and so forth and they dont have to do this sort of thing but seriously if your offering something you should follow through with it.

    I'm not impressed by the way this contest has been handled at all.

    sorry but thats a BS answer, actually there was no answer... it does not in no way take this long to collect data, maybe in the non-digital age it would have where people were reading entries cards and what not but not now where its all done for you instantly.... this is becoming a joke.
