    Default Wouldn't 'prize winners' leave comments/posts on NarutoFan?

    Hey just thought of something, maybe you guys already thought of it...

    If Tazmo really does give away prizes, wouldn't the prize winners, like, leave at least a comment or something on NarutoFan saying "HEY I GOT THE PRIZE IT IS SO COOL LOL!!!" or something similar? I've never seen any comments or forum posts like that. But I don't read the forums much, so I could be wrong.

    The forums tend to be very detached from the main site. Most of the regulars at the forums rarely visit the main site (usually only to download the manga), and most regulars at NarutoFan only come to the forums if they have a technical issue.
    You wouldn't find much at the forums.
    I'm not here much, but if you have anything to say to me about Tazmo, you're either (a) fanatical, or (b) wrong. If not, we can be friends. Except you, Martyr. We can never be friends.

    Yeah, but all the same, you'd think a regular visitor of the main site who's won a prize would say something about it in the thousands of comments each Tazmo post gets.

    I mean, if I've just won a prize, chances are I frequent the site often, implying I leave at least some comments. And a "I won your prize" comment certainly makes more sense than a "Hey i'm in top 20 lol" one.

    Just trying to point out that the lack of comments from prize winners probably mean they aren't any.

    Of course, but who do you know who's sifted through every post in the threads? There are thousands of them, and the spam builds up so fast a lot of good posts would be lost.

    You're probably right. Was just curious to see if anyone would respond with a genuine sighting of a proper comment.

    I've never seen any responses from the 'winners' on N-F either, although I'd bet that a thread like this just might give young Mr. Tazmo some ideas if he happens to read it.

    *sees a future naruto-fan forum post titled 'Thanks For the Great IPOD Tazmo!', posted by a spanking new poster/winner named 'Christy Smith' or 'John Edwards' or 'Fill-in-this-blank-with-any-generic-sounding-name', etc... *

    Do you really think he would go to the extent of fake prize winners?
    I know you guys may think he's been doing some "shady" stuff, but fake prizes is outright lying, and I don't think he'd go that low. Think of it- what could a couple hundred bucks do to him?

    Nah... probably not, but it's not too hard for me to imagine some newly registered poster named, "ILoveRamen" or "SuperSasukeFan" starting a thread thanking Tazmo for their recently awarded Ipod or plush Naruto toy gift, by saying something in the Potemkin thread like, "Hi! I was the Christy Smith who Tazmo gave an Ipod to on his last great Tuesday post, Thanx Tazmo, you're the Greeatest!!! See, If you donate to Tazmo and Naruto-Fan, you're Dreams really can come true!!!"...
