Well it's happened again
NapalmSloth failed to respond to my PM with his/her shipping information within 10-days and the new winner of the April 2019 giveaway is MT-Vessel
who now has 10-days to respond to my PM in his inbox.
Just so everyone is aware, the rules of the monthly giveaway were established by the site owner who is passionate about inclusion in the giveaway rather than exclusion. Many sites have giveaways that require a minimum number of posts over a certain period of time to participate, but AAPK has elected to open the giveaway to all registered members no matter how many posts you've made or how "active" you've been.
Sadly, in the year that I've been helping with the monthly giveaway, many months (like April 2019), I'm looking to the second or even third place winner because of the lack of response from the first winning member. To me, if I'm going to take a chance on a beautiful knife that somebody reached into their collection to giveaway, I'm going to find the time somewhere within 10-days after the number is chosen to check-back to see who won. A perplexing situation to which I don't have a good answer.
