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.

Seems like you should win to me.



You should win, if there is no rule that states that you have to copy and paste a specific part.



 

 

 

Sorry, I think you lost.

It clearly says you must post the "sentence immediately preceding the image and the sentence immediately following it". If you posted more than that you should be disqualified.

With contest, you have to follow the rules to the letter, not just the spirit of the rules.



You'll always be a winner in my book pal! Win or lose!

Well looks like I'm gonna get a $25 gift card to amazon vs the $800 valued actual prize. I fully disagree and this this is a major slap in my face. But it is what it is.



Well you should have been quicker.

When the prize disparity is $800 to $25 of course you're going to disagree, till you're blue in the face.



 

At the end of the day you lost nothing but gained something.

Quicker? I was first. I only lost in the long run because some people started to complain that I copied the whole article (that of course included the requested info) vs posting just the requested info.

It doesn't matter. I still win $25.
