- Your entry must be in our hands by October 31, 2007 (Halloween)
- The winners will be announced in the November Newsletter
I may not have it word for word, but both of us saw the October, Halloween, and November parts at different times of day, so did not finish the entry immediately or send it in for what we felt must be an obviously defunct June deadline.
Now we go to the page to clarify something and we find that the original dates are back on, and we’re kinda pissed off—all our work being for nothing, and all. What’s up?
Think I’ll hear back?
Edit: Totally, totally heard back Monday. If you’re interested in more precise information, take a look at the Utilikilts June 2007 Newsletter, where they explain everything. You’ll have to scroll down a bit to the Mock-u-Mercial info, but not too far. CJ was pretty awesome to let me know what was up before the newsletter even went up, but I appreciate getting filled in! As misunderstandings go, this one was pretty awesome… ;}
It turns out that they were going to extend the contest, but then the folks who already had their entries in were vexed… so they decided to have two contests. Apparently the website difference I saw was just an oversight, with the information needing to be changed in various places. So Marty’s going to keep working for Halloween (and I think some friends of ours are going to put in another entry, too, which is awesome).
And at the end of the last email—because sharing glee is good—was this:
Take care, – CJ (who is also an unreasonable headlamp fanatic…)
