<venting> Either make sure that there is an email contact in your profile, or respond to the karma thread when you are declared a winner.

How am I supposed to send this to you if I do not have an address for you? </venting>

They probably figured you would PM them once they won.

I like adding caveats such as:

"If you don't have an email posted or you don't contact me within 2 days of winning...NEXT."

Actually, I did state 3 days.

It was a multi-winner karma. All winners to date have been mailed out, except for the one entry that has gone radio silence.
I still have some left, so if anybody would like a "2020 Keep America Great" Trump bumper sticker, please contact me via the email address in my profile, make sure that you give me your SIGforum name, and your real name and mailing address. You may post an entry in my karma thread if you like, it might be nice to track the entries that way, but the important thing is that I know who to send it to, and where to send it.

Vtail, I have the same problem.

I posted the winner 6 days ago, sent an email to his public email address that same day as well, and have not heard back.

Perhaps our respective winners are on vacation?

Yeah, I noticed yours, too.

I didn’t post a response time like you did. I guess I’ll give him a little more time and then run the karmanator to select a new winner.

Nah, you don't need to run the karmanator, just pick the next-to-last entry in your karma, you know, the one with the BMW R-65 motorcycle. Wink

People who do not read and follow simple instructions will never know they were the winners. I just pull the lever and move on to the next.

They probably don’t know enough to search for their names when logging in.



"It did not really matter what we expected from life, but rather what life expected from us. We needed to stop asking about the meaning of life, and instead to think of ourselves as those who were being questioned by life – daily and hourly. Our answer must consist not in talk and meditation, but in right action and in right conduct. Life ultimately means taking the responsibility to find the right answer to its problems and to fulfill the tasks which it constantly sets for each individual." Viktor Frankl, Man's Search for Meaning, 1946.

I've done three karmas and had that happen twice. They actually had email addresses, but simply failed to respond in a timely manner.

One of 'em didn't respond until a week after the karmanator selected an alternate winner.

<coat tail vent>
Then there are the winners that never acknowledge receiving the item, much less thanking you for it. I was still happy to do it, and I didn't so much need the acknowledgement as... I mean: Didn't your parents ever teach you any manners?

Lately, I have sent email to several people who have listed their email as being a favored way to contact them. (non SFers)
Crickets.
I think it is now a form of the fake phone number you give out on a bad date.
Endless spam may be a factor in people ignoring email.
If it is not in the form of a text message, no one will respond.

V-Tail,
If you're trying to get me, my e-mail has been down for a few days. I can give you another address if you need.

No, this was not addressed to you. I have your information, and your karma was mailed earlier this week. You're fine.

This was a multi-winner karma, some of the folks responded promptly, others it is like pulling teeth.
