Congratulations!

Great job everyone. We had a great go around with this contest and lot of participants. With over 2000 posts during the contest period there were plenty of questions and answers about Windows 8. For more stats, Bob put together a stats web app where you can compare contest stats and even personalize it! Go give it a check out for more details on the contest as a whole.

All winners will receive an email from the Stack Exchange team with instructions on how to get your prize. (Note: the T-Shirt emails have already been sent, so if you achieved Level 1 and didn’t get the email, check you spam folders and make sure you weren’t suspended for cheating.)


Level 1 Winners

All I got was a Lousy T-Shirt

All users who reached Level 1, and weren’t disqualified due to cheating will get a T-Shirt! Great job guys. It’s our way of saying “You just answered all those questions, and all you get is a lousy T-Shirt!”

To achieve Level 1, you had to have:

… all tagged Windows-8.

  • slhck says:

    Oh, and of course thanks to all those who played fair, you know?

  • Karan says:

    :O Wow, I’ve never won anything in a lucky draw till date! Holy jumping mother o’God in a side-car with chocolate jimmies and a lobster bib!

    Thanks a lot to the awesome folk running and moderating SuperUser/StackExchange, to everyone in the community who contributed great questions and more importantly answers, and congrats to everyone who won (especially multiple prize winners!)

    P.S. I sincerely hope the “Winodws Surface RT” is not a knock-off. :P

    Congrats all!

    And by the way, this commeent was posted from my Surface RT with type keyboard, which is totally awesome :)

  • Günter Haagen says:

    Kongratulations to the winners! Surface is ok maybe for 1.0 product but is not “laptop killer” like Jeff said. No desktop apps. I am waiting for Pro version. Without keyboard long documents are not possible. Is Microsoft giving it with the prize? iPad 4 has billion apps with better screen and ios.

  • Thank you and congrats to all! When will the prizes be sent?

  • Lamb says:

    Thanks a lot to the moderators and all SuperUser/StackExchange community.

    I’m really worried- About my eligibility for receiving the prize, b’coz I was under the impression that I have 4 weeks to reply (as mentioned on http://win8challenge.com/) contest rules, Later I realised that the e-mail clearly mentions that the deadline is 20 NOV by 5:00 AM. But it was too late.

    Finally I sent the deltails at 5:03AM (3 min late) :) Will It be an isssue ?

  • Jay says:

    Do you ship outside the US? I am a level 1 winner and i got the email a few weeks ago. Not sure if i should still expect the T-shirt :(

  • iivel says:

    Congrats all who made it through the rounds and won an awesome prize :)

    Now to dig through my junkmail and find that lost email about the T-Shirt!

  • Received my prize, the Arc Mouse today!! Many thanks!
