You doubt it?  Do you know where were the link to the rules? In a realy bad place.

I don't care if you doubt it or no. I'm just saying to respect the rules. And if the rules says that if you play nice and find a prize you'll gain it, it needs to be respected. And if the rules says nothing about a person who started cheating and stoped cheating to play nice, it can't be created now when the game finished.

Wait, but you did cheat. Your very own paraphrasing says nothing about having to be cheating at the moment that the prize is won, "If you cheat, you'll gain nothing".

No. The rules don't say "If you cheat you will gain nothing* however if you then play nice again you will be back in with a chance if winning again" They say "If you cheat you will win nothing. If you don't cheat you can win." Meaning once you cheat, the contest is over for you, indefinitely.



*Definition of nothing: Nothing is a concept that describes the absence of anything at all.

---

As for your argument that you "didn't know the rules", that's a silly argument, cheating is never accepted in a competition and you know this[hence why you got scared and decided to check the rules]. Secondly, as for not seeing the rules, aren't they shown when you first start the contest?

I'm sorry but I think you're trying to play everyone for a fool, and even if you're not rules are rules, and they're not debatable.

Its just sad how this happens every time.
If you have problems, simply stay away.. I'm pretty sure Patch had a clause in the rules stating his decision on this whole thing is final and he is a pretty fair guy so he wouldn't have kicked someone off the winners list without having a good reason :)

So lets just move on, shall we? :)

OK. I didn't know there were rules about not driving drunk, so I went out and drove drunk and got pulled over by a cop. I told him I didn't know there was a rule about not driving drunk so there was no way I could have broken that rule, and so he didn't arrest me! zomg!

That's common sense IMO, but if you really do want it spelled out:

"all winnings", that includes before and after you were cheating.

(And here comes another analogy...)
I'll brush for you guys that I'm not here to play with analogies.
(but ok, let's answer him too...)

Kotjze, you drove drunk and got arrested. Now you can't drive anymore because you already drove drunk and broke the rules. Isn't it fair?

And what period of time is it?

The point is that you're not getting a prize. If you want you can sue him and have a judge make a fool of you, not that you need much help with that.
