Of course, Anonymous, you can never win if you don’t include a name and email address with your entries on Fridays…

anyone else have trouble entering? every time i tries to enter it would tell me i had already answered.

From mod: That’s impossible because there’s nothing automated set up on these contests.

Sa thing about this Michael Runyon guy who has entered multiple times using different accounts is, that just in the last 2 months, of those six names, Vince Williams won on April 12, Anthony Treece (aka Tony Treece) won along with another Treece person on March 8th and on March 15 Michael Runyon himself won.

From mod: If that’s the case, good job outing the problem. We can’t control people who will go to lengthy degrees just to get something free.

umm, it’s not impossible, it happened to me repeatedly and on two different computers. just giving you a heads up.

From mod: Perhaps you’re not the only “anonymous” who isn’t putting your name and email address with your entry?

was I a winner?

From mod: I don’t know — none have been drawn yet.

To anonymous — there are no blocks of multiple entries. A comment is a comment on WordPress. All are held until approved.

We have three choices:

1. Continue as is — where cheaters will constantly try to find ways around the system.

2. A free-for-all that makes it harder for you to win (enter as much as you want).

3. We stop doing contests — just as Topps is on board to provide items on occasion.

I’m leaning toward 1-2.

It’d be nice if people weren’t desperate to win something by any means necessary.

Free Stuff Friday contest winners to come later tonight…

Comment by chrisolds

I’ve never entered more than once for any FSF contest, and I’ve been randomly drawn as a winner twice (I won a third item thanks to my Black Knight on the Black Horse story). It is certainly possible to be a winner without going to extreme lengths. Sad truth is, if there’s a system, some people will attempt to find a way to cheat it. But even then, everyone making a post properly has a chance of winning, and I think that the Beckett staff does a great job of doing all they can to stop cheating from occurring. Keep the contests coming, and keep doing a great job with them, guys! They’re fun!
