    @shhquiet. When selecting a winner for this competition, could you please not pick a winner who has sent out spam asking hundreds of users to like their design? These messages are incredibly annoying!

  18. djramsay
    djramsay ·

    PLEASE STOP SPAMMING ME. I do not like and will not like your design. I have Voted and will not again. @shhquiet share the 250 piggies with the loom members with photos on their homepage who spend thousands of pounds to support lomography.

    scusatemi tutti per lo spam... sono nuovo nella comunity e non pensavo fosse un problema.
    non volevo infastidire nessuno e creare alcun problema.
    ho visto che alcune persone pubblicavano nei commenti liste di nomi e davvero non pensavo di creare alcun problema.
    Scusatemi per il disturbo.

    It's not like 5 or 6 people would have participated, or a dozen.. The fact is you received 261 contributions from people, and you haven't said a fucking word after finishing the contest. And it's almost a year since you posted this competition... I think 261 works aren't something to forget/ignore.
