Can moderators be winners of book promotions? Personally, I think they can be if their posts gets picked and relevent to the forum. I am asking this question as I don't remember seeing any moderator winning so far.

See this related thread: http://www.javaranch.com/ubb/Forum10/HTML/000511.html
Almost all the moderators are eligible for the book giveaway as long as they post relevant questions in the host forum. Carl and Paul are the only moderators who are excluded from the drawing. I believe a few moderators have been lucky in the giveaway before although I have not been

I've received BOTH my books.
The 1st one took awhile and when I contacted Carl the publisher sent it via priority mail with UPS , which as far as I'm concerned must have cost them more than the book did
Dont knock anything Carl the Great does around here !!!

I have not received it yet.


The book I won is going to be published on 17 December (according to Amazon). Probably that explains my situation.
I can wait.
