Great to see a site that is available all over the world about a show that travels the universe only allows citizens of 1 country to enter its competitions….

Passive aggression aside: We’re a small, independent fan site, and international shipping on a CD costs around $16 each. I’m not going to ask a contest winner for money. We wrestled with how best to do this, and decided we could offer the copy being given away on the livestream to anyone in the world.

If we had to regularly pay international shipping costs every time we ran a giveaway, we just wouldn’t do giveaways. It’s just the reality of being a small fan site.

I guess most of us Europeans would be happy to pay for the postage ;)
But I can totally see how you would not want to get into this hassle. International shipping can be a real nightmare (I used to run a record label, so I have my fair share of experience with that).

Every time there is a comp for something it’s always restricted to the USA. It’s not just you but every US site and company. It treats the rest of us like we don’t matter. If someone wants to enter and pay for shipping it should be up to them. If they don’t want to pay then they don’t enter. That’s just my opinion.

So is it possible to use MyUS for example?

Joshua: I’m not sure what that is. I can mail prizes to U.S. postal addresses, so if MyUS is some sort of international forwarding service, then have at it.
