  • Some waiting for gifts, some waiting for MS interview. This has transformed into Student Waitstar from Student Rockstar.

  • @ ranjeeth,

    The very first question from my side :::: Are you Microsoft Representative in forums ?

    i'm also working with private sector and in our  company, we import PBXs from European countries and Canada, but they never take this much long.

    Also, the gifts were pre-decided and by any means, it should not take more than 20 days, a month at max to dispatch the gifts. But its nearly 3 months the contest has got over.

    What you expect out ranjeeth ??? Only patience ??? If yes, you are seriously mistaken. I'm not some kind of "sant" who can keep on waiting. Mistake is Mistake, whether its committed by me or by Microsoft. But for this much long delay, Microsoft is surely responsible.

    Think a lot many times before writing this kind of statements in forums. Because what i believe in is :

    Justice delayed is justice denied.

  • thers no point in blaming them  not being able to send the gifts...bcoz they r really not gonna cheat us...lets wait...after getting the mobile u will surely feel that the wait is worth...

    Don think that im supporting ms or asking u too keep quite...im able to understand ur feelings...

    I wish u guys get the mobile phones soon...

  • Well lets see.. 3 more days left for their final commitment.. if the gift is not here in next 3 days.. we should to do something.....

    As sanket pointed out
    "Justice delayed is Justice denied"

    Its just because we have not done anything yet.. they think they can do things their way... they are delaying it without any justifiable reasons and not even care to inform the winners that they are delaying the gifts..

  • Well friends, when i back to evening at my Room, I always enquired that did they got any parcel..... and Reply is NO.

    Anyways i called the concern person in Microsoft on Sept. 05, 2007. They said to me that they sent some gifts on 04th and finsih up by 5th sept. so all pending gifts will be delivered by one week, I am still waiting for the gift, I am here in NCR but till date i did not received gift. Hope MS will quite correct at their end and we all will get Mobiles in few more Days.

  • @ Admins
    please look into the matter of Mr. Yogesh.
    He still did not get the  gift.

    it will discourage the feeling of all the contestants.

    yep...he is right......
    Wednesday, September 12, 2007 11:47 AM
  • yeah if this is true then most of us wil get discourage so admin plzz do take a look

    over his problem..

  • hey guys...this isnt anything like dicouraging...bcoz total participants eligible for prize  r 63...only 10 of them havent received the prize...all others hav received it as said by MS...so keep participating in this contest...and gain as much as u cud...also share ur valuable thoughts with others...
    Wednesday, September 12, 2007 1:48 PM
  • @ Jayakumar,
      This is even more discouraging because all others got the gift 1 month back.. and only 10 of us are still waiting.. also there is not genuine reason for it, nor hv they informed us about the delay.. they expect us to call them and keep on asking about the gifts and then they just keep delaying it.....

    Well enough is enough.. only 2 days are left.. after that, some of us are going to take actions.. As I had mentioned during the previous competition, gifts are not important and the contest itself is good enough to fight for any gift... But if you declare that X person is a winner and he won this gift.. you dont hv a right to hold the gift back.....

    I still believe that the contest is very good and i dont care about the gift.. but the one they hv declared that i hv won.. is mine by all rights and they dont have any right to hold it back....

    So if the phone dosent arrive within next 2 days.. there are going to be serious steps being taken against this...

    Oh my GOD!!!!!!

    this is really unbelievable...


    you don't hav any feelings towards other rockstar contestants.

    u don't care for them.

    It shows that you are totally concerned about yourself only and don't care whether other participant in is problem or


    I thought we all guys have a unity type of feelings present in their heart

    but your statement is totally different from them.


    Let me tell you about one of the earlier participant Mr. Yogesh who had won Windows Phone.

    He had called Mr. Abhinav Bakshi several times, he had also tried to visit the MS office, despite of his hectic schedule  

    but still he is empty handed.

    Don't you guys are concerned about this???

    You are happy in getting your gift but did'nt thought that this can also happen eith you too guys.

    then i assure you tht u'll come here and ask for help..

    Hoping tht this won't happen to anyone..

  • very rightly said Akshat.....

  • Dear Jayakumar,


    Your words really hurt me a lot, you said that "only 10 have not received gifts and this is not anything like discouraging".

    I would like to inform you that 7 persons out of these 10 are in Top 10 Ranking who struggled a lot during last contest and there Ranking points were very close to one another and it really quite discouraging for this contest sprit.
