I received the email on the 23 December 2010 02:42 (I'm in Australia so...*shrug*)

WooHOO!! I received an email 13 hours ago (oops :) from CCP, they are reviewing and pre-qualify all submissions before posted to the site. They expect it to be completed today or latest tomorrow! This is excellent news,don't know why this isn't indicated on the main site but whatever - a response that says the cogs are working.

Thank you CCP for responding with an explanation.




Did you file a petition or did multiple people get this? I never got an email myself and saw no posting, just wondering, as stil concerns about receivership, will have to see, and whether I rabble or not :p


I sent an email to the help@evecontest.com located on the contest website.. that was several days ago that I sent it. I sent it to state to them I had sent a 2nd submission of the same ship and to explain what I wanted.
They could be busy replying to everyone or just those that make the most noise? Sad I got a bad feeling my ship submission might be left out? lol oww ... oh well.

Where is this help link on the contest site? I looked everywhere and tried typing it into my browser and got a 'this might be a trick' message.

Happy December 23rd, the day before December 24th, upon which the night is Christmas EVE. Remember, CCP staff have lives outside of EVE, and you wouldn't want the children of the staff of your favorite game to go wanting, would you? :P

Cut these guys some slack, this is the season to have plenty to finish up, and it is almost Christmas. That being said, Merry Christmas to everyone, and thank you for throwing this contest.

Another note - keep in mind, a lot of submissions happen last minute, and many of them may not fit the guidelines, or barely fit, or etc, so a lot of decision making about whether to accept them as is, send them back to be cut down a whole 200kb of data, or the like, may be at hand. Saying that the voting would be up by the 22nd was a bit optimistic and unrealistic. Oh well.

For the sites;
Main Contest Site: http://www.evecontest.com/finalvote/

View Entries Site: http://www.evecontest.com/finalvote/browse.php


If you guys want something else to do while you wait, feel free to do one of the EVE Radio contests if they are still going, or come to Holiday Spirit's Ship Giveaway later today. He says it MIGHT start somewhere around 7pm EST (4pm Pacific, Midnight Thursday Night / Friday Morning UTC time). You can find his post here: http://www.eveonline.com/ingameboard.asp?a=topic&threadID=1432012&page=2

Enjoy. Behave. Santa doesn't have to play EVE to spank you. Keep in mind... he knows when you're sleeping

who knows when..

Anyway at least they know there is a problem now (if they didn't before) jumping up and down might seem annoying to the calm, but if there is an issue (prehaps there was a problem with uploads and they didn't know? *shrug* anyone's guess) - it can help to direct attention to it for a fixing. :)

Regardless, have a happy and safe Christmas everyone! Very Happy or Lo Saturnalia Confused

You would think CCP would be nice enough to post a sticky thread informing their community as to whats going on and when we can expect a voting.

Let's not forget this contest is being run internally (thank goodness no more DA). And CCP is in the middle of prepping and deploying the largest part of incursion, so I'm surprised this contest actually proceeded as fast as it did.

If you try to submit anything you get a message the contest is over, so some gears are moving somewhere!

....Make-up is a fail? I'm as anxious and checking this with enough anticipation as you, but anything a week before the 8th of January is a success. In fact, they might even extend the time allocated for voting.

Needless to say it's a bit of shame no one of CCP say nothing to us.. but I prefer they make it slow than as DA staff has done, in time and with bad result(without saying wrost possible results). Also think that the people who are working on this contest maybe don't have the rights to post on this forum on behalf of CCP, maybe that's why it's all so quiet.

As DA has done i think they underestimate the community thinking that a internal contest would give them just some hundred ships, and maybe they got some thousands :D So let's just wait and keep faith, at the lest they have done this contest after our request and we all new that day for pre-judge all the entries was optimistic at the very least. In the end all the time they are buying is for judge our work in good way and to take some holiday they deserve(who can blame someone for going vacation?! NO ONE! :P)
Let's wait ...... we cant do anything about that :D

Hello.

I do not know why, but one of my works published twice. Excuse me, but I do not understand how it happened. Published once it.

This is a work of "PREGRINE Strategic BC Tech 3.

Please take note of this incident.

Anyone know why the site for the contest won't show any of the entries or allow voting? All I get is a link to the rules and a submit button; and the submit button only tells you that the contest is closed. The hell?!?!?

When it says the contest is closed, it is most likely referencing that the contest is closed to submissions, rather than that the contest itself is terminated.
Unfortunately, CCP does end up taking a while on the contest, sometimes much longer than they announced. That is a fact to be anticipated with any contest, unfortunately - even in game ones such as the Alliance Tournaments.
And I do lament the fact that there have been no updates on the contest, not on the website or in this post - some sort of update to even let us know that they are processing would be nice, and it wouldn't take too long to post a simple message. Alas, it comes to a question - how long would it take to post a simple message detailing what is going on with each individual aspect that the person is responsible for? 5 minutes per responsibility can add up, and rather easily.

However, this contest wasn't going to be over by New Years anyway. And it occurred very close to the holiday seasons, over which there is always less time to get things done. On top of that, the devs also have to take care of the largest of the Incursion releases. The devs that manage this contest weren't hired specifically for it, to lose their jobs after the contest is over... so give them some time to do their main job, and to sort out all of the last minute entries, as well as so many of the entries on this forum thread. In a way, it is our own faults that this is taking so long.

But on the bright side, this contest will be updated, eventually, and once the entries are all organized, everything else should go much, much smoother.

This being EVE and all, I won't tell you to go out and do something to make up for all the pods the lot of you have killed this year. But even though it'll probably kill half of you to do so... do try to smile. That'll take half of you out of the picture, and double my chances of winning. Dead people can't win, right?
Of course, what with the recent talk of giving zombies health care, I might have to reconsider what dead people are entitled to.

It would be a lot better if a dev said these things, and confirmed that the contest hasn't been forgotten about and that our entries won't end up in the trash folder of someone's inbox.

I just got an eve newsletter that shows voting has started and gives a link. But when you click the link it goes to the same contest page that we all know about with nothing on it for voting. So I don't know what is up....

Give it till Monday. They picked a bad time to try and rush it thats for sure. They have to get revised voting dates approved and that can only get finalized once they have all the entries ready for voting. I think CCP got in over there heads with this one againWink Most likely got started late builing the voting pages give them some time.

Ditto.

I will not join Facebook to vote in any event. I hope there is some sort of way we can vote without being part of "Comradebook".

In light of the delays CCP is experiencing, and my own personal experience of just not being able to scrounge together enough time to even try to participate, it seems that doing this contest in the middle of the Christmas holiday season... was not such a great idea. ugh

It's too bad. Even mid-to-late January would've worked so much better for me; and likely for CCP as well.

How will I vote on the semi-finalists after the 21st?
The Facebook “Like” button will be the vote mechanism.


OMG FAIL! simply FAIL!
i thought the EVE-Community can select the 20 Semi-finalists, i really thought CCP would allow us to be part of the voting-mechanism... Neutral But NO!, some Facebook-morons now have the choice for voting wich 20 Models maybe get it into the Game... wonderfull... I ask myself how much Facebook have paid to CCP to make this Voting happen...Rolling Eyes
For myself i don't see any sense for subscribing to "Facebook" just for this Contest, so like i said... FAIL!
