Update on Promote and Win Contest
I apologize for the delay with this contest. When the contest started I had only hoped to run it for a few weeks but as you can see it has went a little longer.
I’m ready to start tallying up the results, but I’ve got a problem. The problem is that I didn’t realize Twitter search doesn’t keep data past 25 days. My initial plan was to let the contest run and tally up the tweets (and other results) at the end. I’m sure you can see my problem now? In case you’re not following, the contest has ran for over a month now and with Twitter only keeping 25 days worth of data, that poses a problem with figuring out who tweeted about the promotion when it first launched since it was longer than 25 days ago. I’ve contacted Twitter to ask if there’s any way possible to retrieve this information (they must keep backups?) but I’ve received no response thus far from them (thanks for the great support, Twitter).
I am all about fairness and to be fair to all of those people who tweeted about the promotion when it first launched, I want to give them the opportunity to let me know that they tweeted about it before I tally the results. I really have no other option here but hope that word gets out and that most of the people who tweeted about the promotion will see this post and let me know that they should have their name in the drawing.
The honors system will be in place here, so PLEASE if you did not tweet about the contest, do not lie and say that you did. If you were one of the individuals that tweeted about the contest early when it went live, please leave a comment on this article to let me know that you tweeted about it. Be sure to leave a valid email address so that I can get in contact with you if your name is drawn.
Thanks everyone for supporting LogoGala and the promotion. I’m sorry for the inconvenience this may have caused. Within a week or so I hope to have this all wrapped up.
