Grats to all the winners


Are the Life A2 NC+ review giveway winners being announced today?

I am a little confused as it now talks of winning if you have an unboxing video but originally it looked like people were being asked to pitch for a chance to create a video?

Great update and congrats to all the winners!


Thanks for Update @Winniew95
Congrats to all other winners


What winners? It doesn’t say who won

Thanks for the Update @Winniew95.
Congrats to all the winners. :clap:
I hope everyone has a great week! :+1:


These are the core update winners. The review winners will probably be done on the other threads.

The l3pro winners will also be done on the other thread as well (my guess). Although today is the l3pro winner reveal

Way to go all! :slightly_smiling_face:


congrats to all the winners.

I thought that the testers were supposed to be announced in this update in order for there to be time to ship, test, and have the review ready by the date wanted. Maybe I am mistaken who knows

Reviewers selection is not intended to be random so logically to take longer and of course they can change dates and conditions as they’re in charge. Hopefully not 5 near-identical so pointless unboxing videos.

Winners here are on points to use for giveaways and the same few people to vie for the leaderboard.


Agreed, I just thought they would have said they changed the date. Can’t randomly pick people to review for sure. I’m excited to see how they go.

Happy Monday everyone and thank you for the weekly update @Winniew95.

Congrats to all the winners, especially @sodojka for the amazing pic of the week (I believe it was the one shown below, as I saw the post earlier where your winning image was actually visible).

I was supposed to be going to my first gig of the year tomorrow night – Adam Ant – but unfortunately the tour has just been postponed until later in the year. Still, my wife and I get to go away for a nice short break in Newcastle, as it is too short notice to cancel the hotel now.

Hope everyone has a great week ahead!


So Adam didn’t stand and deliver?

Well that’s charming

I see what you did there @The_Professor. Well played.

It’s a bit annoying for those who are travelling from abroad and are either already here or on their way, but hopefully Adam is OK and gets better soon.
