Have you guys always not accepted PO Boxes? Because that is all I got and I have entered quite a few contests. I live out in the middle of nowhere and don't even have a mailbox.

I AM IN DESPAIR!!! (even more so if I never had a shot at all those other contest either)

Me too. I was having security issues with mail delivered to my door so so I sealed up the mailbox and got a PO box. They don't even try to deliver mail to my door anymore.

Since your specified shipper of choice is USPS it doesn't make any sense.

This is new. Shipping to PO boxes by FedEx is a pain.

No where does it say we ship by USPS. It says something very, very different that you assumed meant that we ship by USPS.

Does one have to play/beat the game in order to enjoy the series?

I'm honestly rather suprised you felt the need to give an example of what the address should look like... do that many bad addresses come in? (Is this one of those 'I'd have to see it to believe it' kind of things?)

Probably partly that and the fact that there have been quite a few posts asking about what is acceptable lately. People weren't sure if the country was necessary or if they had to also include their name in the address even though it has its own line in the form.





I just have to say that I love the example address. Moral Orel!!

About 10% of the entries are bad. But after we started saying that we discard bad entries, a ton of other people started freaking out with completely unrealistic assumptions about what a "bad address" was. That's what made me decide to add an example.

If you don't submit your mailing address, you won't win.

As long as you enter the right mailing address you should be fine. We rarely e-mail people. Originally that was there in case we had to check with you about your address, but now, if we need to check about your address... well, it's been made abundantly clear what we do in those circumstances.
