Is this contest and / or giveaway still going on?

We awarded the prize a few months ago, but I encourage you to share your one-liner story anyway if you have one. You're welcome to either way.

I like scotch, too... and keyboards... I'm not sure you wrote scotch but I'm drinking now so...
it's scotch, right?
It doesn't matter you wrote or didn't, but I think scotch and keyboard are best inventions people made.
Oh puhlease folks! Read the rules, there is nothing mentioned about how the entry is judged, just a requirement of up to 12 words. If the content were to be judged then I should be the winner! 😈Grats @Sputnik19 you lucky bastard!

BTW does Sputnik come in a female gender in Russian? Sputnika?
GREETINGS ALL! We have our official winner! Congratulations, Sputnik19!
Thank-you all for participating! We were absolutely blown away how many people took part in this and very much look forward to doing this again soon. So stay tuned.

ALSO! Just because this particular contest is over doesn't mean you can't submit more of your one-liner stories. Feel absolutely free to keep the discussion going and keep submitting your stuff.

📢 Hey guys! We're announcing the winner this week! The contest might be over, but that doesn't mean you can't still contribute your one-liner stories. Thanks for participating and stay tuned for the official winner announcement.

Your timing is actually funny because I literally confirmed the winner 2 minutes ago haha. Whenever we have these giveaways/contests, we reach out to the winner via e-mail to make sure they accept being the winner and I literally just got that confirmation. I'll have a formal announcement following shortly!

It ended on the 25th :)
Is the winner announced? How do you know if you have won or not?

Same question here

I mean, I'm all for the idea of Massdrop and awesome, fun competitions. But seriously, there needs to be some kind of structure here, some kind of announcement. At least say 'The winner has been selected, congrats!' Or 'Sorry, you did not win, but thanks for your one-liner!'
Great potential and idea, poor execution.
