Yeah, I agree.

With so many bloggers posting wonderful entries in the contest - they have plenty of work to do, I am sure.

Hi Navin and welcome here. :)

Why're you feeling down or disappointed  for not getting enough votes or by seeing (abnormal) voting made on other posts. 

The key to get more votes on a post is - make more friends on IB, expand the network, interect with other bloggers and they certainly will reciprocate. 

I am not sure whether 200+ votes are real or by fake accounts but I am sure the system will find it out whenever its time to decide. 

In this contest, the winners will be selected considering different aspects and not votes.

I guess, Samsung would like to pick a blog that could create an impact on the Internet as a whole (Google results, Keyword analysis, global visits to their product page on wiining blog) because picking a winner that an impact only on IndiBlogger makes no sense. Samsung has created enough buzz on Internet & IB already (which is why you joined IB too. didn't you?)

Don't worry & let us play fair! Smile

I joined the Indiblogger community very recently only to take part in the Samsung Mobiler contest, but am somewhat disappointed at the way things are moving here. I'm amazed at the amount of bogus voting happening here. It's almost like the General Elections in India Wink 

I hope the judgement will not be based on these votes.  It seems the people having 200+ votes for their posts have a lot of time on their hands to create fake accounts. Wink

 

Cheers!

Naveen Ji, don't worry of vote count. Judgement will be based on ingenuity of content.

Are the Samsung team going to be reading all the posts?

Well, they ought to, even if they don't, they should not say they haven't read.

crawler-referral based tracking is largely ineffective... tut tut.   Waiting for the recorded version to be embedded.

One more question, do these widgets need to be embedded in a blog post to qualify or outside the blog?

Sorry for all the confusion with this contest! We've already run a crawler to check which blogs embedded the widget - so you need not worry, it's sufficient! Anyways, for those who missed out on the launch,  we're giving them the option of embedding the recorded version of the same as a prerequisite for the contest (as soon as Samsung embeds the launch on youtube!)

Hi Renie, Can you claify if in this contest IndiVotes would be taken into consideration or not ?

I don't think it's a good idea to change your rules mid-way through the contest. It is unfair to allow those people who did not broadcast the live launch of the Samsung tab, to participate in the contest now.  What will be the criteria for selecting the final 20 Samsung Mobilers? In my opinion the only criteria should be the quality of their submission and the popularity of their blogs (traffic coming to the contestant's blog site). You better leave voting out of this because we all know how much bogus voting takes place in online contests like this.

Cheers!

Perfectly said by Navin !Now that most of the contests don't count IndiVotes, we can see not much votes being casted :)Indivotes is awesome feature of Indiblogger, but it should not be a part of contest :)PS : My personal opinion !

Hi,There is not techincal issue. The entries for the contest are currently hidden and so when you submit a entry, it would also be in hidden mode till the contest open to public viewing. :)
