OpenD: tomorrow's Sunday - so why not set up a live quick fire draw at pre-announced time if no one claims this time rounds. For instance 60 secs to respond to the PM. Otherwise it is going to be Xmas present for someone!


Sounds good Tongue out except for those of us who have work.

I need to go out and don't want to in case I miss a message!!!! I'm even compulsively checking my spam box and my inbox here in anticipation.

The redraw timer could still be made shorter, say something like 2-3 hours...

This is getting a bit beyond the joke, how hard is it to check your email for the chance to win a prize worth over $1k. I know i havnt won when i check PM/Email but i still check my email multiple times just in case i missed it.

Im not to sure about a quick fire draw as im working tomorrow, but something has to be done.

Pick someone who has been following the electronic pass the parcel! At least you know they are following the thread and logging on regularly :)

freitasm: Ok... No claim, so there's another PM sent just now.

Seriously, if there's no claim on the fourth attempt I will just lose faith in humanity. And on those geeks who don't check emails at least once a day. Or those who enter competitions and then block our emails.


Feel free to give it to me! I've received like a thousand emails from this forum in the last week! I'd be happy to reply to your PM!

this is worst than being tortured by Osama Binladin with your hand tighed up and your foot hanging upside down while he slowly burning your testcles with gas torch.

This what i feel like waiting and refreshing the page every 2minutes. It's torturing
