We want to do more activities like this, and of course utlizing video, as we think this adds to the excitement.  But obviously we need to figure out a more secure method, or the other option is we just don't have such contests in the future.....  

Either way, I thank you for your honesty, it is refreshing to see it.
Look, this guy KNEW he wasn't guessing which was the contest instruction. He could have PM'ed you when he found out. He KNEW it was wrong to claim the prize under the circumstances.

Yes, I also looked noble cable pull strength up on google because I thought maybe past indicators would be a good starting basis for my guess - I saw a private video and moved on. I am however offended at the implication that the rest of us would also have participated in the contest if we too accidentally saw the exact answer.

Congratulations to the winner and noble, the actual number is pretty astonishing smily_headphones1.gif

Rediculous...

Lol. I like how everyone who didn't guess it right is now getting all up in arms because a few of the contestants actually did their research before posting a guess.

The contest only stated that you had to take a guess. Whether it was a blind or educated one was never stated. Get over yourselves

There was too much ambiguity in this contest. I did not watch the contest video but the first post stated that the pariticpants of the contest should answer the question about "pull strength" and I did answer to this question, but in the meantime it appeared that Noble is asking about tensile strength which is a different story.
Congrats to the winners. Looking forward to another contest.

I agree, he won fair and square. Everyone here has the same capacity to use Google or Bing to their advantage. He just stumbled upon the good stuff, I don't see how he wouldn't be qualified.

Thanks to all the whingers and whiners now the guy is out of the competition. I say you're all sore losers, the ones who complained. He should've got his prize.

What I got upset about had nothing to do with you guys. I got upset about the negative assumptions about my character from a few of the members. Of course I read that it said "guess" but I simply didn't think to take it at its exact meaning. Not because of ill intentions, but simply because I didn't think about it... I did what I always do when confronted with a question I don't know the answer to... Research. ;)


Hey, congratulations. I just found out you won. Great and, really, really, I ENVY YOU with capital letters. But all the same, congratulations. I really hope you enjoy your Nobles.

Some one needs to close this thread. Its depressing how some people are. @dr13zehn should've got his prize. I bet you 99% of the people here would've did some kind of internet search for the answer. Its just ridiculous.

Now, for future contests and whatnot, it will be helpful to know that I saw the video simply by hovering over the search result and Bing will just play it automatically in a small window. I never clicked on the video link since I didn't have to. I guess that Bing just played a cached copy of the vid without actually going through Vimeo. So evidently just password protecting a vid will not stop some search engines to play a cached version. Again, that's just speculation.

 

Congrats to the winners!

 

 

and I was trying to see cached site with Google :| damn it, I should've used Bing for that. and no, I wouldn't admit though.

WTF ...Don't put me in your cheating list. The thought never even crossed my mind, but then I'm not you. Pretty much says it all about who you are and the morals and standards you were brought up with and live by. Grow up and get a honest life.

Cheating is if you're breaking the rules. Look back at the OP, I see no restrictions to finding info about the cables online. Rather, I'd see your multiple post edits on the thread more borderline "cheating" than what was mentioned here, but yeah, like you said, morals and standards.

Way to judge someone for being honest. Really shows your character and what kind of person you are. It's a two way street, mate...
