Default Member Contest for Food: no follow through

I recently entered a "member contest for food" in which the member sponsoring the contest never got back to me on my entry and finally let the thread lapse for two weeks, so it eventually got closed. After seeing no response to my entry and then seeing the thread close, I PM'd the person who ran the contest to ask why (s)he never followd through on my entry. I got no reponse.

I looked at the rules in that section and found that since the contests are not sponsored by WI, they cannot be enforced.

I think that if someone is going to start a contest and promise a prize for a correct answer, that person is obligated to follow through on all entries and is obligated to award the promised prize! Am I wrong?

I know! It's so annoying, people should give you a prize if they've promised you one!!!

Sorry that happened to you, but I was wondering if they actually had been approved to have a contest {all contests do have to be approved by this site}. Did you pm a moderator with the link and all so someone could check what was going on? This will at least let them know that this member either was having unapproved contests or else had an approved one that they didn't follow through on. From what I read in the rules about contests through the site {approved ones} they HAVE to show that they have the items and that they will send them within a certain length of time after the closing of the contest. I think I read where they also have to be gifted to run a contest of any sort but on that I'm not totally positive.

aww I'm sorry this has happened to you!!! It's happened to me too! I think maybe people should be approved if they can begin a contest based on number of posts and rep!

I'm sorry that you did not get your prizes for the contest. I think this is why the only prizes allowed to be given away are food, because the food is fairly easy to get. If you want to enter contests where prizes must be given, then the galore section is for you. I always enter the food contest just for fun.

Hmm...I think I read somewhere that if they don't give you your prize, they get banned from having contests...but don't quote me on that. I am not totally sure.
