I thought the thread said you just sitting in your house smoking what get you in the poll. There's two here that is doing just that, and I thought you could only post one pic not multiples I thinks it's kinda dumb that some people got to add over 5 pics and had more chances of winning. I mean common mine was me on top of my house for Xmas with thousands of lights. I think that's more exciting than someone siting on their chair with there cat with 12 other pictures. Kinda upset this whole thing was dis organized and don't say my photo was photoshopped cause I had to put both pics into one cause you couldn't really see me on my roof. If I knew you could add 10 and 20 different pics I woulda sat in my chair to and took pics

hyper, don't get so livid.....if you were reading the forums, the question of whether you could post multiple pics was answered a long time ago. and the sitting in your house thing wasn't a rule, it was a general guideline that AB posted so a bunch of people didn't post pics of them JUST sitting and vaping. John 1313's pic is a little more artful than just sitting and looking at the camera. I get your point about taking all that time to decorate your house and all, but don't get pissed. I think the whole reason your pic wasn't chosen is probably more that you can't see any volcano product at all in it, not that you photoshopped it. I liked the pic, but you probably should have stood closer to the cam so they could see what you were vaping and had the house in the background. anyway, there's always next contest - these guys are always doing something. just make sure to read and post in the forum if you have any questions whether something's ok or not next time and you should be alright. peace, bro.

Ok where do I start Hyperformance that just poor sportsmanship its a contest your picture was good but so was everyone else's pictures. Everyone got a fair shake and what guarantee do you have that you would've won if your picture made the last ten only 3 ppl we'll get a prize would you have complained then. Just not cool man even if your disappointed about not making the final cut. Just be glad we were given an opportunity to win anything volcano has no obligation to give anything away they are after all a business and there is a bottom line. With all that being said I hope you at least had fun having the picture taken and it will be something you can show off and laugh about later. They'll have more contest in the future I'm certain and you'll get another opportunity to participate.

If you needed to know if oyu could post more than one pic you could have asked. Others did and the question was answered.

NO you were not disqualified because you edited the photo to show a close up of you. Any photo that did not fit the requirements was completely removed from the contest and a note was sent to the poster as to why it was removed.

I am sorry if my wording of the rules was not satisfactory for you. In the first rule, the sitting on your couch vaping line was meant to mean, that you most likely wont win with that one.

Seems like every time we have a contest someone calls RIGGED, and it is kinda ridiculous. All the photos that we posted and fit the requirements, we voted on by the Volcano staff members and the top ten were the finalist that are now in the poll.

I do not know why others did or did not vote for yours but, I can tell you why I did not vote for yours, not that I really should have to, but I will to appease you. I do not vote for your pic of you and the lights on your house, was because I could not make out the e cig at all in the pic. That is the one and only reason I did not vote for yours.

I don't think we should have to explain our reasons every time we do a contest, and I would hate to have to say this, but if people keep complaining about the way we run our contests just because they feel it is rigged then we just might stop having contests altogether. We have already had to get rid of some of our giveaways on Weds nights due to so many complaints and problems.

I mean come on this is a contest test people win and people lose. It is the nature of the beast.

Hyper,

I don't think that was a very nice thing to post. You just threw a fit in the forum???? Because the staff did not choose your picture for the top 10? Come on, we all love ya to death and you know that. This is a contest and sadly not everyone wins or gets chosen for the finals. Lose with grace.... and dignity in tact as well as your self respect. There were pics I liked and some I did not like. Of course I am biased to my own, but hey who isn't. I wont critique your picture, but I could not even see your PV in the pic let alone if all the pieces were volcano or not. Perhaps next time the best course of action would be to ask in private why your pic was not chosen. I worry that the poor sports will make everyone else lose out on this because EVERY single time there is a contest, some one has to throw a huge fit and cry foul. Never fails... some one does it and it is ridiculous and childish. Do not ruin it for the rest of us.
