Contest offering a LIX 3D pen - a no show for thousands of backers for last 2 years ! Answered

How odd to find a contest (https://www.instructables.com/contest/firsttimeauthor/) offering a LIX 3D Pen as a prize when thousands of backers on their KickStarter campaign are still waiting to get theirs after some two years of run around and non-delivery of the paid for rewards, very same 3D Pen.

Insctructables might want to retract LIX as a sponsor given they have not been able to deliver their product to thousands of individuals over last two years.  They cercainly have not earned any (free) advertisement from anyone.

Go check the comments at the KickStarter's campaign :

That's surprising, as I know they got burnt on the Clime sensors that were part of the Small Spaces prize packages. The contest was in Jan. of 2015 and Instructables decided last month that they would just send out Amazon gift cards to the winners instead because they still hadn't shipped.

Wow ... over a year before they decide to substitute the prize. That's a long time.

Well, I didn't push since I knew it was Clime's fault. I only asked in March once I saw that Clime had begun shipping some of their preorder items to their other customers. When I asked staff to check with Clime they offered the substitute. If I, or others, had brought it up earlier, I'm certain staff would have substituted earlier.

Oh...

Maybe HQ got some early stock?
