Unless you purposely don't use Twitter to challenge yourself

Grats to all, I would have passed on my beta key if I won.

Tons probably, like all those accounts that have been created for each contest, have 1-2 posts and never came back... and reading through the whole post I wonder how many people are just unable to even read the first few posts, as the same dumb questions popped up on every single page.

P.S.: A shame that only ~1/4 of the keys went to accounts not created solely for the purpose of leeching it. Big congrats to all those formerly existing members that got a key

I agree,
it's all about getting more customers/subscribers, even if there's only 1% that will come back I suppose

This about newly registered accounts and such, usually some contests say "you need active account pre X date to be eligible" to avoid this, but considering 20 keys, it's not much, no biggie. Shame tough, a lot of work was put in making the art and page for the mini-giveaway.

Well, if some of those newly registered people stick around it is well worth it for the site, and us older members, since they provide revenue to keep it running.

With that said I do agree that it is abit sad that so few oldtimers won, but congratulation to those, hope they'll enjoy it!

Forget what I wrote. I thought the previous posted lists where just the first 5 to sign up and not the actual winners. Gz on winning!!

They were all at the bottom of each respective page. After all, treasure chests, you gotta dig down to find them.

We wish everyone could win! Unfortunately, can't happen. :/

Congratulations to everyone that won, and thank you to everyone that played. Hope you had fun!

By the way, does the treasure chests spawn at the first clue giveaway, or do all chests spawn when the first clue is posted? I took a peak around, couldn't find any chests right now, so I guess they aren't placed on the site yet.
It's not logical to use US timezones AT ALL..
CET = 450 million people in 1 timezone, NOT counting Africa..
US = 4 timezones (6 if you include Hawaii), for 300 million people, NOT counting South America
Go do the math, which timezone would be more logical to use..

And if people start to whine, simply use Zulu-time and all will be good.. No need to summer/winter time or timezones...

Timezones didn't matter. The clues were posted for a full 24 hours before the winners were drawn.

Cairenn, it looks like you put a lot of work to make the pages and to put the code in the source of the page and all, shame it was only for 20 keys. You put way too much work for such a little contest! :P
