Oh, no! Not you too, Kenny! Doesn't anyone read the Front Page or subscribe to the Announcements forum? It was even announced on Facebook and Twitter!

Maybe we should have done another one of those find the star contests or another mystery.

Not a bad idea for the next time we have a contest. I don't know how hard that would be to implement, but I've forwarded the suggestion to the rest of the team.

Thanks for mentioning that. I rarely visit the Home page (I have Forums bookmarked), and I don't usually read the Notifications either. I guess I'll have to get in the habit of doing that. I've probably been missing a lot!

Same here. I link directly to the forum main page and never go to the home page.

As far as facebook/twitter announcements... never gonna happen.

I didn't visit the Home Page (I rarely do) but still saw the notifications, which were almost everywhere I visited, near the top of the page. Not sure how anyone could have missed them, as they are quite intrusive (in a good way).

That's how I found out about the contest too. I can't remember how long the banner stayed.

This. I still see the notification up there. I rarely go to Home Page and have Forums bookmarked as well.
Anyway good luck to those who entered the contest. I didn't, I thought I didn't need another ereader and if I'd won I'd have taken it away from someone who does. Good luck again!

I did sign in, mainly to wish a Happy B-Day.

Then started reading what I could win. Mmmmm Not to literate with this stuff but think I want my next tablet/ereader to be open. I like my NT but don't like having to buy only from B&N.

So in short if I was chosen would not reply so someone else could win!

Here's the link in Announcements you missed.
I never go to the home page; I go right to the forums page.

I don't do Facebook or Twitter, and I never saw any notification.

I never read the front page, nor do I subscribe to anything from this board. I also don't do Facebook or Twitter.

But, I did know about the contest. I saw the thread last week when it popped up on the Forums home page as the Last Post for the Announcements forum.
