Congratulations to Leandros from Belgium - he is the winner of the Halloween Competition which ended today 30th October at 17:00 CET. The top 20 members were saved and then a number from 1 to 20 was drawn using the online software from the website random.org - the number 8 was drawn meaning that Leandros won the prize (San Marino Standard Coins in Proof) as he was in position 8.
Now in order to be a fair play for everyone - I would like to ask all the members that if they have any evidence of SPAM by this winner to let me know only at email@example.com - would we get evidence we would invalidate the winner and choose another one. If I don't receive any emails by tomorrow 20:00 CET the prize will be posted to Leandros on Tuesday morning.
Originally this competition was supposed to go to the member that is number 1 in the ranking and who brings the most new members to the website. Alas, this was creating a lot of spam and some weeks ago we had sent a warning that this might result in the suspension of the competition and had suspended some members from the competition. In the last days the number of SPAM had surged which resulted in lot of our members in either quiting the website or blocking emails - so we had to take immediate actions about this and instead of closing the competition for good we decided to change the rules so no one can accuse the euroHOBBY team for using this as an excuse not to send the prize. The rules were changed to stop the spam that was going on, as then for one to win didn't have to be number 1.
In the past we had similar competitions and never had this problem but now that the number of the members had increased we believe it would be difficult to hold similar competitions in the future as this lead to wars between members which is the last thing the euroHOBBY team want to see.
