When you have a contest you should not just tell us when its going to end, you should also tell us when the winners are going to be announced.


For example I am waiting to hear about the winners for the second Mythic Map Pack Contest and I have bee checking like every minute.

It would be nice to know when you should go on your computer to see if you won.

Well, I think the reason they don't do it, is because it's not always certain when they'll do it.

But I think they could give a good estimated date.

All you do is subscribe to the thread, then it gets locked when the contest end date has finished. Then you just go on checking your subscribed threads like normal. When you see that one pop up in the list the next time with Razz as last poster, you know the winners have been announced. Simple.

And they can't always say when winners will be announced because sometimes it takes longer than expected.

The round 2 winners were announced.

Considering we send an e-mail or PM to winners in contests (and usually PMs will be alerted via e-mail as well), you would have a second way of knowing who won aside from coming to the website.
