Subject: The wait on this one I can understand. Some of the contests have professional websites who only can use their webmaster to post the contestants. And sometimes the webmaster can't do it for a day or two. I don't have a problem with this. I'd rather wait and see all contestants clearly on a professional site, then never see anything posted anywhere. And that happens alot.
In reply to: 's message, "my pet peeve is why a contest takes 2 or 3 days to post contestants after deadline when they only have a dozen or fewer entries but then you have a contest who can have twice that and have them posted the next day PLUS i personally am an instant gratification person so my patience is limited, if the deadline is on a sunday dont make me wait 3 days for results, lol" on 08:32:56 06/22/10 Tue

  • Most conetstants enter at the last minute (I'm sure that's a pet peeve to MANY directors lol). So it takes time to download all the big photo files, resize them (and most resize in 2 sizes, the thumbnail and then the full size photo), upload them, make a contestants table, and then add the photos. And I have never seen a contest that didn't state how long it would take photos to be posted. If you read the rules, you should see when directors will have them up as well as winners, if you don't like it, don't enter. As far as emails...I could see maybe 1 director not answering them, but if it's more than one, perhaps something is wrong with your email host or theirs. If you really need to get to them, post a message that you are trying to contact them on this board or the black board. I bet you'll get a response then. (NT) -- No name, 06:27:39 06/23/10 Wed
  • I'm the OP and not complaining about the length of time it takes to post contestants for some directors. I'm complaining that to my knowledge they never were posted and there is NO CONTACT updating your paying contestants either with most directors these days. I checked all the sites daily, refreshed, and nothing. One of the contests promised several winners and finally I did find a banner, but it only had one winner. Again, no answers to my emails. And nothing is wrong with my email. I get 100's of them every day I work online and the only problems I've ever had are with some photo contest directors. There's no way it's on my end. I'm just saying, if you are a director and can't understand why your entries are low, I've just probably explained why people aren't bothering with you anymore.
