Anyone else receiving an error morning email, for the contest?

Posted Dec 19, 2012 at 8:38 am in Threads > News

I’m sure A&Me are aware, but almost every morning for the length of this 25 Days contest, I receive an email without text, with a link to http://androidandme.staging.wpengine.com/

It tells me early what the Prize will be, but doesn’t have the text in the Qualification area. I’m only a 34 rank right now, I bet today’s Nexus 7 is for 35 or higher….

It also only looks like they’ve announced 2 winners. I would LOVE to win this year, I’ve been wrestling with Sprint, and would love to win a n unlocked phone!

    Ew, just had my first pop up ad on the site, too.

    I’m not really against advertising on the site, since they have to pay the bills somehow.

    However, I do hope that the advertising is implemented as gracefully and unobtrusively as the rest of the site. We have literally the most cleanly-designed forums, here; and I hope it stays that way.

      Oh and no error emails, here. Sorry.

  • ndorrough

    No error emails here either. That is very strange.

    When I try to launch to the site, thru the email, it shows today’s contest as a 32G Nexus 7 and there are even 4 comments! It’s not live though.

    The ad was smooth but one of those cover the whole page ads. Not my fave, especially when trying to view on a mobile browser. (Oh the irony of being unable to read an Android blog, from an Android….)

    Also, does anyone know why the avatars are different, for some comments? I’ve gone to look at my comments and some are a gentleman android, a Dog android, screaming woman, etc?

      see, how in this thread alone, I’m a nerd, dog and crying avatar? lol.

        It’s just a randomly generated avatar for those who don’t choose to use their own image on the site. Tried to make it fun!

    No emails at all here. Did you sign up for them? If so, where?

    Looks like they just added a few more winners today. There not sequential so maybe they are waiting for a response from the other winners.

      I think I now see where to sign up: the “Notify me of new post by email” check box next to the “Post Comment” button at the bottom of each page. I had originally thought they just pertained to the specific comment page, not the posts to the site.

    No emails here, could be the checkbox you tick about notify follow-up comments???

    My rack keeps going down Not sure why I tweet and comment and try to participate.Haven’t been able to particpate in 3 days. I think whoever gave me 2 – votes for having some fun talking a Limericks is Bah Humbug and pretty sure that kept me out of qualifiying for Day 15 entry by .5 of a point. Karma is a…….What comes around goes around. On that Note Happy Holidays and Good Luck to everyone else!

    No emails here. The number of announced winners increased… my fingers and toes are crossed!

  • crossbred900

    I get an email everyday that is formatted weird and always says “On day 1 we’re going to make it super easy for you. Simply leave a comment below and you’ll be entered to win. Multiple comments are allowed on this post, but each user will only be counted once. The winner will be chosen at random, so don’t bother downvoting each other.” But it always has the current date and prize. It always links to http://androidandme.staging.wpengine.com/2012/12/news/day-19-win-a-google-nexus-7-32gb-hspa/ and clicking any more links keeps the “staging.wpengin.com”
