    I was just wondering, I see this contest all the time, but I never see a list of winners. Is there such a list?

    Hi Derek,

    There is a comment left when the winner is announced and section is added into the contest body letting everyone know what the item was (when it is the name the thing style contest) and who won it. The winners are selected once or twice a month, early this week the winners for the last 3 contests will be determined and posted.

    Thanks for playing!
