Need advice/help...I posted a RAK and picked a winner and so far haven't heard from the winner. I DM'd the winner but still haven't heard back. I realize people are busy but should I pick a new winner or continue to wait?

I'm always the default winner if its not claimed. Should I dm you now or later? - philliprocks  1319.2 #132 7:40PM

we can keep bumping this too. I did a very foolish and sad thing and now I always remember the Rak's I enter. I entered one that dahulagirl did for a magazine I wanted. I did not post that much back then, not sure why I did not see the dm, but she had to give it to someone else. that would have meant a lot to me now and maybe if I could have given it to someone who was close to her would have been nice, so dahulagirl not only brought the RAK's to MW, but she reminds me to that I should follow the RAK's I enter. - secretagentangel  4658.8 #28 8:17PM
I think it's great that all these RAK's take place. And it's sweet to see concern for etiquette. Just shows how kind people can truly be. - KennyV  1154.6 #156 9:01PM
I've never done a rak but what I've seen is that the person giving the rak posts how long the winner has to dm them before they pick a new winner - Cinderellaaa  165.2 #2495 7:27PM
gheebuttersnaps is having the same problem due to a dm problem. I would post that you are dm'ing them, and if you do not hear back within 24 hours , they will have to forfeit the RAK and then either repost or give to the next on the list. - secretagentangel  4658.8 #28 7:29PM
What she said! :) Thank you, SSA and Linzee for your advice...I'm picking a new winner and posting it tomorrow! Hope you're doing okay, SSA! - GheeButtersnaps  377.6 #597 7:38PM
Oh I am, and sometimes when you feel lousy all the time, the good days seem like such a huge blessing!! - secretagentangel  4658.8 #28 7:40PM
This should be a great reminder for people to search their names on a regular basis πŸ˜ƒ - Linzee  1188.8 #146 7:44PM
I hear you...I suffer from migraines, and I am sooooo thankful for the days that I wake up pain-free! Thinking of you.. :) - GheeButtersnaps  377.6 #597 7:45PM
great idea, Linzee...maybe people forget the RAKs they've entered themselves in, too?? - GheeButtersnaps  377.6 #597 7:48PM
Hey Linzee, search your name right now!!! You'll be happy when you do... - goofymom2boys  1502.2 #113 8:04PM
I give a time limit. If no response even after I DM them, I pick someone else - missmimi90  2032.0 #76 7:51PM
Thank you so much for the advice, I'll wait a little longer in hopes that CuriouserAndCuriouser sees it and try the DM again. Otherwise I'll pick a new winner tomorrow. Thanks again for being so helpful 😊 - TiggerBelle  515.6 #408 8:10PM
I actually heard from her ealier today on DM. She may just not have seen yours yet. I have her actual email address too, so I will send her an email, hope maybe she'll see that! - lohofosho  785.0 #235 10:09PM
I emailed her letting her know to check MW - hopefully she sees!! - lohofosho  785.0 #235 10:11PM
Thank you very much :) - TiggerBelle  515.6 #408 9:52AM
Hello there Cdeley! I DM'd you yesterday, perhaps it just didn't go through :( But I just sent you another. Sorry for the inconvenience! (and thanks loho! <3 xoxo) - Mad_Tea_Party  1334.6 #131 11:30AM
My DM isn't working right now (and I have no clue how long it hasn't been working) so there's may not be either. I usually give a time frame that the winner needs to respond by before I pick another winner. - PiecesOf8  608.4 #335 8:12PM
What is DM? - schoolmsw  31.2 #5874 8:15PM
Direct message. It's a way people can send private messages on here. - PiecesOf8  608.4 #335 8:15PM
I see it from both sides. As someone with a funky work schedule and never knowing exactly when I am on MW, I appreciate so much when people DM me to tell me if I won a RAK. Many times I miss the RAK winning post and would never know if it weren't for some awesome MWers. Then again, I see it from the givers standpoint and how long do you wait? I was no help at all was I! LOL πŸ˜‚ - DisneyDavidEMT  2631.5 #49 10:20PM
hahah I get exactly where your coming from. I prefer to send a DM out to the winner rather than just saying they have 24 hours as I understand people have lives and I know there have been 24 where I wasn't able to check MW. But if they don't respond to any communication within a few days, then I would have to move on to a new winner. - lohofosho  785.0 #235 10:23PM
FYI....DM is not working on my iPhone, but it is on my iPad so I DM'd curiouserandcuriouser for you too. - DisneyDavidEMT  2631.5 #49 10:28PM
I hate it when my phone doesn't notify me when I get a DM. It does when some people do it, but not with others. I usually find out through my email. - HasAnyoneSeenMyGlassSlipper  690.8 #286 10:32PM
I did the same, figure hopefully one of the notifications will go through to her haha - lohofosho  785.0 #235 10:37PM
That you very much, appreciate the help :) - TiggerBelle  515.6 #408 9:53AM
This was probably the root of the problem, i was on my iPhone as opposed to a laptop :/ thanks David :) - Mad_Tea_Party  1334.6 #131 11:32AM
For me personalΕ‚y? I don't really care how long it takes. It doesnt bother me. I will Post a few times, and that usually works. I have actually had one RAK way back when that was never delivered because they never contacted me. But, it's no big deal. It is YOUR RAK, however. So you set your own rules. - MeridaFan  4243.7 #34 10:43PM
Yep! - Cinderella_Schnooks  3370.7 #42 2:48AM
I know I don't always get an email when I have been sent a DM. Phone, I never get a notice. - Lelundrial  656.4 #305 7:26AM
Thank you all for the tips and advice...I was trying not to be impatient, was just really excited to give away my first RAK on here 😊 - TiggerBelle  515.6 #408 9:56AM
And I heard from her...YAY! πŸ˜€ - TiggerBelle  515.6 #408 10:03AM
