found old contest win
Hi I was looking my name and found a really good win from a facebook contest. This win was Aug 1st. I am pretty sure no one contacted me. Any advice? They pretty much just put my name as their winner and that's it. No call or e-mail from them.

You need to check the rules for the contest. Some contests say you must check their wall and then contact them if you are the winner.

If they did not notify you "outside" of facebook (or facebook features), then they are in violation of facebook's terms of use for giveaways and sweepstakes. You can google for the link to those guidelines (or search the forums here, cause I've posted the link (and I think I've seen others post it, as well)). I would send them that link and inquire why they did not notify you directly.

Did you get any reply? I don't like it when sponsors just post the winner on their page. Facebook should start doing something about it ...
