Those who took part, and I thank you for doing so! - it was an excellent round of entries - will be aware that the winners, jimbuna for the edited comp and and mariuszj1939 for the unedited comp each win one these prize pins, very kindly donated by Mittelwaechter.

But! If you recall, there was a third pin - and that was to go to someone who simply voted. Both voting lists were combined and 'randomised':

You are all in there:

<span class="ev_code_YELLOW">Oops. *RJ flicks through the heavy 'Ubi Moderator Handbook' searching for the chapter 'What to do when you have made a mistake - and someone has noticed'*

OK. Jimbuna and Mariuszj won the comps, their pin prizes still stand. Messervy won the random voter prize - his prize still stands.

BUT! A few names were entered twice, and that will have affected the randomising - creating an unfair advantage. I also meant to leave out the winners from the voters list as they had already won a pin.

"So what ya gonna do about it then. MR. RJ!?" I hear you all cry.

.... There is a 4th pin. I will donate the pin Mittelwaechter kindly insisted I kept for myself and the randomisation will be run again. As I said, all previous winners will still receive their pins. I apologise for this oversight, but if anything, someone else will win a pin now!

I'll be back later with the result. In the meantime I'm off to flog myself with some birch twigs to within an inch of my life as punishment. Oh the shame! http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/blush.gif

Don't do that RJ.....your making me feel like a real hack http://imgcash3.imageshack.us/img240/4669/slapheadrc6.gif

I put up enough smilies to show/portray the humour.

That 4th pin (that nobody was aware of) was given to you as a gift.

Come on mate...think of the wishes of the supplier/provider.

I'll find something in Texas for 2nd place winners as well. http://imgcash3.imageshack.us/img412/4774/thumbsuplargeon1.gif

jimbuna - Worry not! I took your post in the way you intended, I assure you. The mistake had already been communicated to me.

Truth is, I got it wrong and to rectify the problem the easiest solution was to donate my pin and run the randomiser again.

However, there are high level talks currently going on. Testament, yet again to the community here - there are too many Gentlemen of high moral standards in the mix! I'll reveal more later! http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/25.gif

And thank you of course for your kind offer to find some prizes! I am very grateful, and sorry I can't make it too Texas this year for the meet - Pesky kids! http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-very-happy.gif

Then why didn't you follow the book?

It clearly states that in a situation like you found yourself in, you should ........
A: Delete the evidence.

B: Ban any witnesses.

C: Deny any knowledge of the aforementioned mistake.
and
D: SMILE, because nothing happened.... http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif

Thanks BTOG for the wise advice! Not sure we should reveal what is in the Ubi Mods Handbook though http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-very-happy.gif

If truth be known, it was the smilies. They are too big and they got to me. I must be getting soft in my old age.

Note I didn't use the word 'intimidated' http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-very-happy.gif
