    Yeah, I'd like to know too... I hoped the prize will arrive by early March (seems unlikely now...) since that's when I'm supposed to meet a friend that I sent my prize to his address...

    I agree. It has been well over a month and I know that it is not just me, but most of the winners are dying in anticipation for their prizes to arrive. I understand that you guys are working on a more organized method to help sort out some of the confusion, but it's not a good thing that it's taking so long. If you guys absolutely can't send out the prizes in a different manner, I would like to see a notice first of what is actually going on.

    *cough* yeah, I echo the concerns. I was really hoping to get some of my prizes for a cosplay tomorrow, but I can see that isn't happening.

    @Archaic

    or really @ anyone who bothers to check this thread?

    I propose that next year, strict deadlines be placed for the address information to be given. I think this would motivate people to choose their prizes more efficiently.

    Sorry to sound antsy, but I won a calendar. The space on my wall reserved for it is empty, and it's mid-February!

    Hello everyone,

    This is a quick update to say that there's nothing to update, I'm afraid.

    Long story short, but this is all pretty much my own fault. Due to issues with my own personal schedule (from general busyness mostly, having just started my PhD), I've not been able to sync my schedule with the guys from HAVA (who give us the money for this contests) to properly arrange for things. In previous years, I just sent them an email and that was it, but after the mistakes that were made last year (with the person who had been sending the prizes out getting things incorrect because she wasn't familiar with Pokémon), we'd arranged that I'd be making those purchases myself, with a corporate credit card they'd give me the details for. That's not something that can safely be done through email, so I need to actually talk to the people there directly, at a time convenient for them, and that just hasn't been able to happen as of yet.

    The good news, such as it is, is that I should be able to talk to them this weekend. We'll also be sending out prizes by rush shipping wherever possible (including for outside US winners), so once things are ordered (which, with any luck, should be this Sunday), they shouldn't take too long to get to you.

    Sorry everyone for these continued delays.

    Well, don't worry too much, but truth to be told, I was getting pretty... unnerved when it comes to things like this. I think I really, really need to get the mailbox replaced right away (it got wrecked)! Looking forward to my prize getting in, hopefully before this June or something. :)

    Things would have to be pretty screwed up for it to be that late. ^^;;; Even with the worst screwups we've had (the Black & White games last year, where our supplier for some reason sent out copies of the PC game "Black & White" to some people), we still got things fixed much quicker than that. ^^;;;;;;

    I guess there's no chance then my prize will arrive by March 8th, right?... that's when I'll meet my friend at some anime convention, which is when he was supposed to give me the prize I sent to him...
    Oh well, worst case I'll get it in April then when we might meet again

    So, this is probably a crazy question/concept, but any chance of upon request any of us with a choice of prizes being able to abort and just get a pre-order of B2/W2: Electric Boogaloo in Japanese? >_>
