    Just ignore the naysayers, just Arnold Schwarzenegger said so many times.
    You persevere. No pain, no gain.
    One can expect to receive a 600€ graphic card on a silver plate WITHOUT some effort, as little as browsing some webpages? And even if I should pay for shipping, I would say Thank You so many times, it will be not enough.
    Yeah, coming from a poor family, I can appreciate even a warm smile, when it is offered. A graphic card...for FREE? Well, buddy...
    Oh my goodness, the entitlement of those people...

    Though they've become a tradition not everybody likes hunts, not everybody likes difficult hunts, not everybody likes easy hunts, ergo this is why we have a mix of questions, newsletter subscriptions, and hunts. There's plenty to go around and to choose from. But above all, let's keep it nice and friendly, as in that spirit we are organizing these contests.

    didn't find the logo, waste of my time. I think I will never do this again, goodbye. Best of luck for the rest who still hunt for the "must be very hidden" logo.

    Read the following with a friendly warm voice.

    Shouldnt be frustrating either. Its a little game to spend time relaxing while looking for the logo, with or without the logo your chances of winning are close to none anyway.

    The banners (and going trough 200+ pages) are our way to thank to the G3D staff por their work on planning and doing this giveaways. Thats why some of us will react againts what we consider unfriendly or not possitive messages about this FREE giveaways. You may or may not like them, take part on those you enjoy and skip the rest. Just be thankfull about them. No one is forcing you to "waste" your time looking for a logo.

    PS: Some minor frustation handling skills are good in life, take theese logo hunts as training and do them all !! Maybe you are lucky enough to win :D

    They say there is a first time for everything, and it's true. This was the first time I missed the logo on first go. Well done boss.

    Almost embarrassing the amount of time I spend looking for this logo. Well, good luck to the participants.

    Since I started it, I will finish.
    Imagine having some gifts, and you want to give them to people who may or may not afford buying them.
    So, you somehow, make a raffle or a contest. While you are doing that, some people come to your house saying various things about the raffle or contest.
    Say, you open your arms warmly to them and just give handle the gifts? Wouldn't you expect something from them, as little they can offer?
    I henceforth apologize to everyone who may feel offended, but I keep my affirmation.
    And yes, the quantity of people commenting their frustration regarding the contest on December is sky high, hence the little tolerance to that kind of commentary.
    It isn't personal with anyone, but its tiresome and leave one with the wish of NOT doing again.
    So, @PraetoriaN_IT fellow guru, as @Goiur said, minor frustration handling skills are good in life, take these logo hunts as training and do them all !!
    And I do volunteer from time to time, and I remember vividly going back home with the utter desire to choke (figuratively)the ungrateful people for whom I stayed in a cold, rainy day just to offer them something for free, and not receiving a simple Thank You or a smile. Can't imagine what Hilbert does when reads commentaries about the contest. Man, I couldn't for the life of me bear or restrain my anger. How you cope, it's beyond human understanding.

    Humanity lost its way , we are beyond salvation.

    I mostly do these hunts because I hope it gives some extra page view stats Hilbert can then show off to advertisers. Chances of actually winning something are probably only slightly higher than hitting a jackpot :) This is why I prefer difficult logo hunts, because that's where the fun is for me. It's the journey, as far as I'm concerned.
