important problem RRS feed

  • Question

  • hi ..

    my name is arun, rank 33 and this is my first post here.

    I have a problem. I haven't  received a single mail from microsoft  since the contest ended. Was ill for the past 15 days , so am very late in realizing this.

    Apparently, u ppl have even sent your documents and some have received the prizes. What documents have been asked for,by the way?  Did you all receive mails or is there some common link where it has been mentioned what is to be done by the contest rank holders ?

     Can any1 suggest what shud i do now.

    Have sent a mail at stdrkstr@microsoft.com but am not optimistic about their replying.

  • @ Deepak and @Chaithanya,

    well you both can expect the express cd's from the MS, the express cd's are good, maybe they might hv the visual studio 2005... and yes the mails were sent out to some top 70 people only... because they all are going to rec the higher gifts so their details needed to be confirmed...

  • I think they will be sending the express cds, and desktop calendars to all top 50 regardless of the 10K limit.

  • I reallly wonder, if they really wanted to have students spending hours and hours hooked onto their computer monitors and posting and all that stuff and give the express CD''s Only!  HUH!  I can download that from their website anytime! (I have purchased the Visual Studio when it was launched!) There must be some real cool stuff from their side. 
    Afterall they are a Big Big MNC! and what students did here was not a simple work!

    Well, X BOX is a real class thing! Congrats Harshil for that You were super here. My heartly congrats for alll those who gained in this event! Kudos on their back.

  • Hey Mmm  I dont know the exact  reason But in my case the first mail on 22 went into Junk bin and was deleted within 5 days as per Junk policy of new Hotmail live  Beta.So the next time i marked them as safe i could recieve them.I reported the same thing to Mr abhinav bakshi.This cant b the reason in every one's case.

  • Same here my rank is 114 but till i dnt received anything not a single mail or anything....

  • Hi,


    I think all the members who won X-Box 360/Windows Phone/Flash Drive got the mail as these are main gifts and costlier too, so the docs. needed by Microsoft ... All others are also winner who did't received any mail, all such winners will receive the Gifts like Desktop Calender and Express CDs without any Verification of Docs.!!!
