looking for the winners!

in February 2010 a survey was announced in http://tinyurl.com/3afznf4
with the promise that there would be raffle and “20 openSUSE T-Shirts,
5 openSUSE 11.2 boxes and one really cool thing” would be distributed
among the survey participants…

i’m looking for the winners…

any of them…

or a list of winners and their prizes be posted into that thread…

anyone know who is in charge of that??

We’ve contacted the winners and did not get an answer from all - so had to do a second and third round :(.

Sorry, it takes a few more days to get his all sorted out - with vacations, the strategy meeting and next week LinuxTag (major event in Germany). Hope to have it done in two weeks time.

since all survey respondents had to be logged in to participate (and
are therefore forum/community members), why not just post the list of
26 original winners (and, second and third round) member’s user name
along with what they won??

and give them a contact point so they can provide a (snail) mailing
address??

who knows, maybe some of the original winners are here and will learn
they won, even if the email address they used to set up their account
here YEARS ago is long gone (or was a temporary, throwaway, anti-spam
account to begin with)…

or, is there a good reason to not post the winners list?

hi Andreas,

still, i’ve not heard or seen a single person mention having been
contacted or bragging about winning that “Chumby” or even a
T-Shirt…when there should be 26 folks boasting…somewhere!

it has been a couple of weeks, maybe just have your secretary post the
openSUSE/Novell log in ID’s (used to participate in the survey) of the
winners…

that shouldn’t be so hard of take so much time…just a copy and
paste, right?

am i the only one here who wonders WHY not a single forum user has
jumped up and shouted that s/he won a Chumby, or a T-Shirt or a boxed
openSUSE 11.2?

does no one care that (as far as i can see) none of the 45,000+ or so
forum users won anything…

i would expect that a fair and random selection from the survey
respondents would have at least one (or 13) of the 26 prizes awarded
to folks who would wanna brag about it in the fora…

despite repeated request, no winners list has been revealed…i wonder
why??

yesterday’s news at this link <http://tinyurl.com/2aute8l> references
the wiki’s new strategy portal conveniently placed here
<http://wiki.opensuse.org/Portal:Strategy>, and that in turn
references “he recent openSUSE 2010 Survey”…

and, my question is: since the news outlines the expansion of the of
the strategy discussion time line, i wonder if sufficient time is now
available to publish the list of winners of survey participant’s
prizes…

on 2 June 2010 a_jaeger said it would take “a few more days to get his
all sorted out”…

i just now completed an online poll for Linux Journal (magazine)
they said T-Shirts would be mailed the week of 23 August…

have all the prizes for the February 2010 survey been mailed yet?

has anyone in these fora ever met a person claiming to have won any of
the prizes offered?
