Flop Contest- Proof RRS feed

  • Question

  • I think this contest is going to be flop! Yesterday, my friend registered on this contest and when he logged in for first time, his profile showed his rank is 424!!!!!
    Now, if there are only 424 users registered (its obvious)  till after the end of first quiz, how can they choose 500 winers? Also, among those 424, we can not b sure that all are real users, who knows if some1 have created 100 accounts to get refferal points?
    Also, they say they will give 250 points for top 100 in forums but if u look at following link which shows toppers int the forum,
    http://forums.microsoft.com/SamVaad/TopAnswerers.aspx?SiteID=43
    there are only 31 names!!
    And wht abt site maintainance? Is microsoft ppls so careless that they cant upadate even the logo of contest showing quiz on 17 & 18 after 4 days too ?
    ?

  • i think this site should have some moderators kind of stuf so that they can delete the acccount of ppl who are inactive of have not logged in even once. like the moderators in orkut

  • Hey

    I also feel MS is not really serious about this contest......

  • Good effort dude .
    But I think you don't have accurate information. My friends rank who joined the contest yesterday is 4170. How we you can claim that there are only 400 participants????????????

  • To add up...

    I think there should be some way by which we can know who all are participating in the contest, their contact if possible.

    What do you feel pals... common speak up.

  • u r right man..and they also say they will select only people with more than 10000 points as student partners.. I dont think anyone will reach this mark..only the winners of omagine cup and such other big competitions can reach that milestone

  • I can understand you but still it is good starting that most of the students are in top 500 but i am thinking how they manage minimum 10,000 points of all 500 students as it is so difficult to earn 10,000 points.

  • we can't say that the contest is a flop show. see the list of rockstars. it shows a very large no. of participants.

  • The information is not correct yaar, my friend, who had registered long back,,, n not active,,,,,has a rank of 3153 now.
    Monday, March 12, 2007 7:21 AM
  • being in the top 100 will not get u points.. to get forum points u should post 20msgs, reply 15 and respond to 20.. these conditions are there in the points table .. now more people have joined it.. one of my friends rank is 1785.. but u r right about the admins.. they are very lazy...
    Monday, March 12, 2007 10:33 AM
  • Agree with you...
    Wednesday, March 14, 2007 7:02 PM
  • no... the contest is not going to flop...  as this time the last rank was some 3500+ and it will increase more.... so till the time of ending of this contest we will have a tough competition. the reason behind so less users is that not many students know about it. but as the time will pass and the already registered users will refer this contest to their friend the number of competitors will go high...
