Some giveaways can appear to be expired or completed (for example showing no keys left) but can still have keys remaining for another part of the world. Since this is a global site, many giveways are done regionally to allow people in different time zones the same chance at grabbing a key as those in the sites native time zones.

In short, what may look like a giveaway that is over to you, may not be over for someone else.

Well, here's one example : https://na.alienwarearena.com/ucf/show/1779741/boards/contest-and-giveaways-global/News/alienware-area-51-threadripper-edition-giveaway .  Stickied thread that has been over for a while, in all regions


Another example - This is just an annoucement of the winners of the March 2017 ARP sweepstakes - https://na.alienwarearena.com/ucf/show/1515260/boards/giveaways-and-contest-na/News/na-march-arp-sweepstakes-winners


Still getting posted in and it's coming up on a year.  Those subforums are full of threads getting bumped, even tho those giveaways/announcements have been ended (in all regions) for a while.




ya have to agree on this one once all keys are gone giveaway comments need to be locked as well as the contest give people a max of 3 days after it ends or something because brining up a month year old post to say congrats to a contest normal folks don't actually do that. have to agree I have been pushing this as well and it comes up again and again from other users since i started a few years ago on this site.
