Welcome to Librarium Online!
So seeing as how the original thread was locked and Blackhat promised a winner would be picked at last weekend, I was wondering if a winner had actually been picked. It would be nice to know who the actual winner was/is, after all the draw is only a month late.
As was said in the Announcements thread, Blackhat is the one organising it (him being, y'know, the site owner and all), so it's him that will be selecting and announcing the winner, in he has the time to do so.
Heaven forbid he should have a life and functional job outside LO!
He did not say he may draw the winner at a future date he specified a particular date (twice I might add) and then the thread was locked which makes it hard for us to receive any updates.
All I am saying is that this is making the site look bad, if promises are made they should be kept. I cannot believe he has not had any time spare in nearly a month to draw one name at random.
It is not about winning in fact I insist you take my name out of the draw, to show it is not about the prize. Yep we all have a life outside the forum but when you start a forum and then start something to promote use of the forum, then it looks pretty bad when you cannot even be bothered to reward the people who have responded to the thing.
Lets be realistic here, the activity contest was started to get more people on to the forum so the advertisers would be more willing to advertise on the forum (more members means more exposure). if I was an advertiser I would not be impressed.
I care for this forum and how it is perceived, this debacle is not doing it any favours and cocky messages like yours Archon do not add to any favourable perception. it annoys me when people like you perceive this sort of thread as winging when it is far from that, I am actually bothered enough about the forum to notice when something like this makes the forum look bad (which it does).
Please note again I asked for my name to be removed from the draw.

The mod staff apologises for the delay in regards to the Activities Contest. As it has been mentioned, Blackhat is the organiser and so the winner(s) will come from him alone. However, due to the nature of Blackhat's job, he does not always have access to the internet or is absent for short periods of time - this makes it a bit more difficult in choosing a winner.
I am sure that Blackhat will be able to sort this out, soon. Please, be patient a little bit longer. Real life or not, we did indeed promise a winner and we shall deliver; albeit a little bit late. Please, all wishing to comment on this, just calm down - there is no point in getting heckles up over something out of our control. We shall try and sort this problem out shortly.
Thank you, we appreciate all the interest this contest has garnered and we hope the members keep up the high quality posts that makes LO the place we all love to be.
Patience is fine but the thread was locked and not updated for for two weeks so I think we have shown mucho patience. Like I said I am not really interested in the prize but others were and are interested.
Thanks for the reply and I hope it is resolved soon.
My apologises, perhaps the term heckles was ill chosen, I didn't mean to suggest your question or response was angry at all. I wasn't aiming that or tell you personally to calm down, but rather it was a suggestion that other members don't demand result off us. We are working on this, and it is not forgotten, its just difficult for Blackhat to find the time to do the draw as well as any other job he has to do.
I understand other members are anxious about this, and thank you for reminding us (should any have forgotten), and we shall hopefully sort this soon. I cannot, and will not put a date or time frame on this, I'm afraid, but instead will say soon. Again, thank you for the patience you all have shown in this matter, and we apologise for the delay.
sorry for the delay. I will post back here once I got it figured out. Thanks
