Compo's

The only thing that really truely annoys me throughout the Internet is the extra things american residents are able to join and get their grubby little paws onto.

One question for you admin have you ever EVER done a compo a resident outside the US can enter? (excluding canada)? If the answer is no i think you should atleast try to find one people from other countrys can enter because don't you see it as unfair at all? you know what would be good if you could find one AMERICANS CAN'T ENTER! lol that would be goodimage nearly impoosible but i'm sure you can do it.

Also in these Compos you always say its a contest for our members well no its not a contest for your members its a contest FOR YOUR AMERICAN MEMBERS!

    Did they have to pay for shipping or not?

    If they didn't fair enough but how many compos have you have roughly since you opened this place?

    If we have to ship something to EU then we pay the first $5 and you pay the rest.  Typically the shipping is $15 to $20 because we are shipping a boxed game (just like you buy in the stores).

    Sorry, but I don't have hundreds of dollars to fork out in shipping for these prizes...as it is it runs me from $50-$75 every contest that we have tangible prizes.

    With betas there is no shipping, if there is it is not done by us.

    Also - we have made every contest we COULD open to all.  Understand that the US/Canada rule is not ours...this is only when betas are involved and the game company tells us so.

    I think we have had 15 competitions including the one I am trying to get up right now.

    I don't know of any site like ours located anywhere :)  We set out to create a truly original site (not your average PHP-cloned game site) and so far I think we succeeded :)
