Have any of the all-time winners received their prizes - $100 worth of a web application subscription?

A while back I received an email with a link to a Google Forms form, which I completed, but feedback since.

  • Sorry about that. We'll get back to you as soon as we can. – Adam Lear ModStaff Apr 20 '12 at 19:57
  • I emailed the staff last week, have not heard a response. – phwd Apr 25 '12 at 16:08
  • @phwd Thanks a lot! – Alex Apr 25 '12 at 16:09


Sorry for the delay on this - I handled getting most of the prizes out back in January, so missed that you'd updated the spreadsheet in February.

Unfortunately, I can't find a way to purchase GMail storage as a gift; can you think of some other web app you could use that we can actually buy?

  • No problem. No, I don’t at the moment. I’ll think about it and get back to you. Thanks! – Alex Apr 29 '12 at 10:42
  • @Alex: kinda looking to get this off my plate - perhaps I could interest you in something from the SE store? – Shog9 Jun 16 '12 at 6:10
  • Yeah, I guess we can fix it this way, no problem. How do we proceed? – Alex Jun 16 '12 at 6:27
  • Just let me know what you want, @Alex. – Shog9 Jun 16 '12 at 6:30

    OK. So, one SE hoodie (size M), one SO hoodie (size M), one Area 51 t-shirt (size M) and one white SE t-shirt (size M). – Alex Jun 16 '12 at 6:42
  • Cool. Is your address still the same? – Shog9 Jun 16 '12 at 7:17
  • Yes, it is the same. Out of curiosity, what is the usual delivery time? I’m asking because, if I remember correctly, the previous package was delivered after more than a month, if not more—is that normal or it was an exception? – Alex Jun 16 '12 at 7:32
  • To Italy? Yeah, it could easily take a while. International shipping tends to be a bit unpredictable that way. – Shog9 Jun 16 '12 at 8:06
  • Got it. Good to know. Thanks! – Alex Jun 16 '12 at 8:30
  • Man, USPS really takes its time. – Alex Jul 28 '12 at 10:21

    Do you have the possibility to track the delivery status of the package? It’s been almost three months and I’m curious of its whereabouts. – Alex Sep 6 '12 at 20:40
  • I'll look into it, @Alex - wouldn't be the first time a package headed that way up and disappeared. – Shog9 Sep 6 '12 at 20:41
  • Yeah, I can imagine. Thanks, @Shog9. – Alex Sep 6 '12 at 20:48
  • Hey @Shog9, sorry to bother you again, but it’s been almost four months and still no sign of the package. Do you know anything about it? Should I still expect it to arrive (and if yes, when will it arrive?), or should we find another way to fix this? – Alex Oct 10 '12 at 7:20
  • I’m sorry if I’m annoying, but do you have any news about my package? It’s been more than four months now and nothing has arrived. – Alex Oct 23 '12 at 6:23

I'm pretty sure they did. I wasn't directly involved in the prize side, but I'll make sure that someone from SE sees this.

  • I didn’t and that’s why I asked. And I asked it now because, somehow (I don’t know why), I assumed it will take some time, just as it took with the swag package. – Alex Apr 19 '12 at 21:07
  • Also, thanks a lot! – Alex Apr 25 '12 at 16:10
