Default Re: BREAKING NEWS: WI Member Designs Contest Winning Room, Doesn't Win Prize

I still have zero understanding of why it is so difficult for Ganz to check the Winner's acct to see if it is actually their room?

How difficult would it be for them to check, really, it is not that tough.

Because someone could still copy your room design on their account and claim it as their own. Prevention is the best way to avoid stolen room designs, if they cant see it they can't steal it.

Point well made...however if someone is to lazy to create a room, steal one instead, they most likely would not go to the effort of recorating the room. But your point is a very valid one.

The only problem is that Kinzvillenewz frequently has their 'fall contest' or 'whatever' contest after WI has done one.

So by not showing our rooms, it would really discourage and even stop people from entering the contests here.

I feel that unless you are a memeber that Non memebers should NOT be allowed to view any pics from any part of this site...contests, houses being shown, whatever...basically any WW room should not be able to be seen by the public.

Granted someone could become a member for a short while, grab a pic, use it, and deactivate their acct (but we could have a policy of some sort where once you are a member that your acct cannot be deactivated for 6 months/1year or something... I don't know someway to trace the theif.

I know it would still be very difficult...but you never know.

Unbelievable!
HAHA Completely agreed! xD

Seriously though, it's stupid that people try to cheat you out of a virtual reward that won't even be worth anything except for in WW! People can be so stupid sometimes...

Good point, but a lot of people actually want their rooms to be viewed by as many people as possible.
I know some people can put kinda of transparent words or some sort of mark over their picture- its sad but that may be what this comes to where everyone has to somehow mark their pictures so others can not use them. Although i think it takes away from the picture its better than seeing your room stolen by another.

I was hoping there would be an update regarding this situation by now. I'm just shocked that this blatant rip-off happened again. I've got my fingers crossed that Newsboys will be awarded her trophy soon.

And if they check the account, I know that I am continusly rearranging my rooms, so if I enter one contest,change my room I could win they could check my room and be like " You cheated!!" But I wouldn't have. Just saying

I hope your fox arrives soon!

I hope that things like this will not cause ganz to get angry or tired of it and stop running contests.
It would be a shame for all of us then.
