    It seems strange that of the many items given away not ONE has claimed to be a winner...a bit unsettling

    Agreed. However if I was one of the winners of one of these contests why would i want to go about rubbing it into your face that i won and you didn't? Doesn't seem right IMO.

    So what's the point of saying that this is fake?

    You dont have to rub it one's face that you're a winner, you can simply present yourself so others can verify the contest is real

    Huh no :eek:
    I believe you said in the thread that there is no list of winners. & I tried to link you here that there is indeed a list. :)
    I am sorry if I misunderstood something.

    This is why I think the contests are (partly) fake:

    One of the members checked the list of winners:
    This was the conclusion:

    I myself watched a few other contests of the last few weeks:

    Happy Birthday contest. You could enter till the 24th of December. Won by thechrizzy. Membership from 29the of December.

    One in a million contest. Won by Austin Venzen, memberships from May. No messages. States he can't login. How did he enter the contest?

    Thats why some of us have questions about how fair the contests are. It's not more then normal to ask a question about that? It has nothing to do if we won anything or not. We find it just strange that people are winning a contest after they become a member or didn't even log in during the contest!

    Wow, if it's true then I would get very disappointed by OnePlus. But it really seems that you're right :( We should ask to dbrand if they really gave the skins.

    Wow that's some decent detective work. But I do have a plausible explination for why, but it doesn't make the situation any better. When the Names were picked what I'm assuming happend was that they used the current list of members at that EXACT time. Not when the contest should have ended. So whomever is running these contests have not been crossing their ts and dotting their eyes that the potion to enter those contests are removed the moment the timeline closes on that contest. Not only that but they should have used the Google doc list. Not the forum list.

    That could be an explanation. An other reason can be that the want to give the prices to new members/cupcakes for commitment. And that's why no KitKat of Android L member has won a price. But that's just guessing! I just would like a straight/honest answer from OnePlus.

    Your argument is invalid, it was not a requirement on any of these contest to have an account in the forums. Not everyone is in the forums, you have to keep in mind that our facebook page has one millions fans, yet there's less than 500K members in the forums.

    Please, refer to the post above to find the winners of the different contests.
