Please explain how this is illegal ? How is this not following the site rules? I think you are mad at the wrong person here , be mad at the person that committed theft not DC
1. This was a 3 prize contest, you can't just rechoose one winner
2. CH chose 3 winner contest to reward 2nd and 3rd and will not be using silver and bronze
Who says ch will not choose you again?
We know this is unfair but there is NOTHING we can do about it other than give the ch a refund...then you have NO chance of being chosen again. Is that what you would like have done a refund?
I understand it is frustrating again though this is the fault of the designer that decided to steal. Now ALL entries the ch has in consideration for the 3 prizes will be gone over with strict scrutiny before any winners are chosen for this contest. Do you think the ch is happy about this...NO he is quite mad, he loved that entry he chose as gold
BTW ch did not download any files, yes we have record of every download and NO files were downloaded. I'm sorry you are disappointed. Most of the time we can catch the theft before a winner, sometimes they sneak through and the contestholder has to either choose new winner or receive a refund. I talked the ch out of a refund
Good luck in the contests
