Crap - I posted about this in the Staff forum, but I forgot to update you guys too...
Sorry about that, that was pretty bad of me to neglect that part.

Markus (dev of minecraft) is visiting the UK and has asked to delay things until he gets back home.
I don't know how long that will be, but if it's later than... say...

29th January 18:00 GMT

Then we'll just have to go ahead without him :/

Pfff, this competition is a bit of an anticlimax.
Too bad, I was really hoping for that premium account.

I spoke with both Munck and Julu_jane about this, specifiacally about the lac of being able to successfully deliver PM's to those who need one in order to release the 10 to get the winners a premium account.

Since this has not happened, I was told that, even thought the prizes are gone, the winner should remain.

I asked that, at least, Munik would be appraised that this "suprememe Minecrafter" status be put up as a newspost and that this competition can be closed - the winner triumphing with a solid and most awesome design.
That was around a week ago, as you last emiailed me Munik, so expect to hear something soon!

Idk if it would be hard to untsticky this thread and to make a newspost saying "Munik won (even though it's only prestige unless there's some AB merchandise lysing around [which i doubt there is].

Please can we finish this...?
It's another reminder of how much is messed up here due to my inability to motivate the other staff to work.
Thanks

And maybe if Titan happens to see this, since he never saw our PMs, he'll sort out a premium account seeing as even Markus Persson fobbed us off too...

Look at that mate!!!

Only after a few weeks of saying it, a moment's having publically announced the fact that it wasn't..! You're on top of the world boy!!!

Lets hope you also earned a PM to say that you were on the front page and that Titan had his wrists slapped for ignoring the whole situation from the very start!

Let this be a lesson to all - if you want something done here, public peer pressure is the way to go.

Hey thanks guys!!!
It's awesome that I'm on the front page of one of my favourite websites!
Even though I don't participate much on the forums I check this site at least once a week for new releases or other goodies, thanks for keeping DOS gaming alive, and I hope that you guys keep doing what you do!

No Probs mate!!!

I'm glad you're okay!
I did try to get this sorted again a short while ago and I'm sorry you had to settle with the prestige rather than the prestige you can spend!

At least it's done now, and - even better - you're still checking out the site!
Hopefully, as I said, if Titan reads this post (as he missed the PMs about it) or the Minecraft Dev stops ignoring us, you'll get your premium account.
If that doesn't happen within the next month, I will contact you on the email you provided to organise it for you personally out of the pocket money I get from my granny.

No reason why Abandonia.com should renege on its competition prizes just because it has a fragmented staff who occasionally miss things in their PM inbox when it really matters.

Congrats again buddy!
And consolations to the other 2 - if my pocket money extends to get you both a premium account too, I'll make sure one comes your way

Yo!

FTH just poked me about it, and to be honest, i don't read this part of the forum at all.

For some reason on another, i have NO messages from you, either in my PM-box or in my Email, ever, nor anything on MSN... Sorry if that has caused problems, but to fix something, i have to know there is something to fix

E-MAIL as soon as you can, since i don't trust the PM-system here.

What's the deal?
Servers?
Prizes?

The competition will run until the new year, so you have plenty of time to get crafting.
Warning: This game is VERY addictive!

Post your screenshots, etc... here. And have fun!

Sorry, but you're out of luck. The competition has concluded almost a year ago.
