I'm Callin' You Out!!!

Here we go again... Honestly, I dont think that I ask too much of any of you to enter a giveaway. I really do enjoy giving you my opinion on this and then giving you an opportunity to win. Its fun and I love seeing everyone else's point of view on things, what they think they'd like, what they'd like to see etc.... I save the more involved stuff for the extra entries and I appreciate greatly those who go the extra step and do them.

With this being said, I have DQ'ed so many people because they don't follow the instructions on the entry, or because I can't contact them. I don't want to leave it up to you to come back and check for the winners, I'd rather you come back and read the other posts that I've put up on the site. I would like nothing more than to be able to email the people who leave the valid comments and tell them that they've won, but more times than I'd like, I cant. And then you lose out and I have to pick another winner. It sucks really.

Please, all I ask of you is to follow the entry directions and please make sure that there is a way to contact you. I really don't like when the first person drawn cant win their prize.

With that being said...

I'm not about to go through every post ever written on my blog, but this is just a small example of just how many people could be losing out on prizes, either due to not leaving me a way to contact you or by not following directions.

Please... dont do this.... (taken from the Quirkie Buddies and Funkie Monkeys giveaway)

Not only did we not follow directions... but even if we did... there is no way to contact.

Aside from all that you mentioned here another point would be that it isn't fair to those entering legitly {is that a word?}. If we have 200 comments/entries and 25 of them are bunk, we should be deleting those comments so random.org only pulls 1-175. It's borderline disrespectful to the host{ess} and sponsor to disregard entry information.

Grr, piss, moan. ;) Stepping off my soap box now...
