People aren't that kind of stupid unless they don't read at all, one of the stones says that is the way to the cave, once you beat all of them you can go back there

You could try throwing in basic subtitles with short hints of what to do next.

That's what I have in mind, yet I was thinking: "Why should I do that if they still won't read xD"

personally I think any COD fanboy would mess up here too, considering how linear COD is.

But I figured it out after 30 minutes of idle'ing, really, there wasn't anywhere else to go.

The game prizes have been awarded and should be redeemed soon!

The cash prizes are not going so well. I had to find a website that sells $10 cash cards but the only one that worked was a site in Australia... and their sales support services are unbelievably bad. I've waited 4 days for a response to an email that they claim should have been answered within 24 hours. What's worse is that they won't give me the codes for the cards but they have already taken my money. ... The $20 card I've been trying to get from eBay but for some reason it won't let me purchase it through PayPal...

So in the future I will not be offering cash prizes.. besides, I think it actually stifles the competition. Comments?

That's sorry to hear, whats more to a contest then, money?

I'll redeem the code ASAP, when I feel like bringing my laptop in.

Prestige. Bragging rights. Recognition. And just because you love competition and making cool stuff.

except many contests get more contestants, because they don't think like that, they play for the prize.

That's why Space Odyssey got so many contestants.

Not really. We had prizes too and got very few. Our mistake was limiting it to SS3. Very few people map for the newer games.

Wrong. For two reasons:

1. Not limiting it for a single game would have caused for many to take the easy way out with SS1. Also, wouldn't make sense when the original idea was to make a campaign.

2. The main problem was when it was announced and when the contest took place: It was in the spring, when most people doesn't have time, due to exams and whatnot.

Look at 7smoke's recent Tennis "contest". They managed to get 15 people, all for SS3! Just because it was summer, when most people had time.

Did it also have protective bubble wrap? You wouldn't want to damage it.
