This is a fake challenge. After 4-5 months, I did not receive the prize. I am really dissapointed. Alphama (talk) 14:56, 8 March 2015 (UTC)

  • Hi, Alphama. I very much recommend reading this. I'm very sorry about the whole prize thing. B25es (talk) 16:36, 8 March 2015 (UTC)
Hello Alphama. I'm very sorry, the only guilty is me. B25es and Laura Fiorucci collected data from challenge winners and me from WLM winners. But till not having all of them I didn't want to send the information to WMF. Wikimedia Foundation has to send the prizes of the challenge and some gifts for WLM. At the end I had to send the information without the information about two winners. However, we collected data for more than 30 people. The challenge was cellebrated in October, so the winners were announced by the end of November. Now, we are at the begining of March, so this is Decembe, January and February, so three months and not 4-5. I'm very sorry for the long delay, but WMF has the information and the prizes will arrive. Please, be patience. I've always thought that we are working on Wikipedia as volunteers because we think in it, so, some weeks to receive the prizes could be forgiven. --Millars (talk) 23:44, 10 March 2015 (UTC)

Now, I don't need the prizes anymore and pls don't send me because I changed my address already. I read the policy and I knew you guys are clever.

Let see:

Nota: Si se considera necesario por causas de fuerza mayor, los organizadores se reservan el derecho a cambiar los premios por sustitutos adecuados. -> Mean what, mean you guys have full right NOT to send any prizes to anybody.

Last, next time, pls DO NOT invite these kinds of challenges at viwiki if you guys host them. And if I host the challenge, I will invite all of you and show you guys know how to run a challenge. Thanks bureaucratic challenge. 25 Alphama (talk) 01:22, 12 March 2015 (UTC)

I'm very sad seeing that you can't forgive me. Everybody makes mistakes. I spend many, many hours in Wikimedia for free, and I try to do my best. If you provide the new address we'll send them. I don't inderstand what you mean with that "are clever". I know you are clever too and you know that that sentence doesn't mean that, but that in case some item could not be send, we'll change for another similar. --Millars (talk) 12:23, 12 March 2015 (UTC)
It's OK Millars. I don't know you and you don't know me. That's over. I won't say anything more. Let it go. Alphama (talk) 05:19, 14 March 2015 (UTC)
