You people do realize that...
1. We are not idiots - there are reasons the threads are closed.
2. The Mods donate their time and effort - our time has value too.
We move the thread to 'Closed' because the contest is over; leaving them open makes them appear thay are still open. When they appear to be open, people often keep trying to enter the contest even through it is over. This makes more work.
Also note that if anyone wants to communicate shipping information or receiving prize information they should directly message each other.
