On a popular website they are running a contest. Today's contest was a secret image contest where at some point an article would be posted that contained a specified image and you had to be the first one to post "the title and timestamp of the post containing the secret image as a reply. Include the sentence immediately preceding the image and the sentence immediately following it in your post on" their specified form thread.
I was the 2nd overall poster, but the first one to include ALL of the specified information. The first poster only included the title/link to article.
My post contains the copy/paste of the entire article which does include the title, date/time, and requested sentences.
I think I won, but a few people (no one from the site) are now saying I shouldn't count as I copied entire article vs just the specified info. Of course there are also many others that say it shouldn't matter as my post does contain required info and I should win.
Out of curiosity, I'm wondering what your opinions are. The winner will be specified tomorrow and I will update this thread with the conclusion then.
However, if I don't win, I'll be pretty pissed as I don't feel I broke any rules and did complete the requested contest entry.
