User Appreciation Contest UpdateSeptember 14,2005 10:48 - Rollie
Due to the overwhelming amount of submissions recieved for the contest, I will be ending the contest early. As of right now, the contest will be ending at 12:00 CST on the night of Tuestday, September 20. This will give plenty of time for all submissions be processed by the following weekend. At which point the tickets will be assigned and I will plan to do the drawing on the 24th outside Orgrimmar on US - Bloodscalp.
After the contest finishes, I will be performing some additional database tweaks and optimizations. At that time, processing will be halted for a day or so while I make some changes that will hopefully help to increase the rate at which submissions are processed.
This is necessary because I do hope to continue doing these types of contests in the future. I think the contest has been a huge success in helping to cover many of the undercovered realm/factions out there and having more data is a great thing!
