      Hey Emil, We can't really check that for the t-shirt winners, (relying on the community to be open for rookies to win that), for payments, we do a thorough check so we will have that covered.

How much time does it take to get a t-shirt (or just a confirmation that you are eligible for the prize) from topcoder after the contest ends, normally?
