why are the posts not visible ? Surprised

Does that mean the date is silently extended !! PHEW! and one more thing am not getting the discussion here. I dont see any major change in the topic for the contest !

IMHO I am sure there's no need to write entries where a person drives only Tata Safari. 

Smile

 

By the way can some one throw light on what was the previous topic and what are the changes done to it ?!?!

@Ranjith : OOOPS ! I saw just now :P The change in topic. 

Some how , may be I had browser cache  ,  I saw only the previous topic and wrote based on it . The prev one was more cool 

But even in this its written A COMPLETE FICTIONAL JOURNEY to A FICTIONAL PLACE.

I guess it should hold good for who ever wrote about unknown lands :) Am also among themCool

Hi Nandini, even I reverted to drafts and had the same question? what did you decide - are you putting it back to published? 

Prasanna and Afshan: Normally till they close it, changes are ok... That's what I noticed in past couple contests.. I made a very tiny change too just now!

I got a new doubt now. I hav a blogspot blog and my word press blog got recently approved.

I dont remember If I selected the word press blog while submitting my contest entry which is written on blogspot.

I submitted again selecting the source as blogspot!

Will that be an issue ? :(

 

The entry was accepted! 

Bushra M
from Bangalore

Submit the post again Afshan. The submit button is still there...

Ranjith
from hyderabad
8 years ago

You were able to submit twice? Surprised

If you select site1.com as your blog, and the link you submit if from site2.com, then it  [ should not ] accept your post.

Something may be wrong with the IndiVine system or you got confused.

Whatever it may be, just check that your submitted the right one after the entries are displayed. If something isn't right, SHOOT a mail to Renie Wink

Or as Bushra said, submit again. Laughing

Micky Fernandez

I have the same question. I published my post on the 7th of September (and which can be verified by going to my blog), and I am certain that I then followed all the steps necessary to enter it in the contest, but I can not find my post on the specific IndiVine page.

Is it indeed there? If not, then can anything be done?

Micky Fernandez
from Kolkata
8 years ago

Ignore my other reply; I have now found it.

Having said that, though, is there anything that can be done in the future? I would hate to write a post, eager and hopeful of winning a prize, and linking it to the contest page, only to find that it did not become an entry (for whatever reason).

feeling happy happy coz now I can see my entry among the other contest entries. Embarassed last time when I participated in indiblogger contest, thy did not show my entry Yell .. now waiting fr indi votes .. however, I did not include Tata safari car or its name in my story (I forgot Innocent that the contest is all about promoting the Car ) so will tht make any negative effect .. Frown

I don't think the sponsors want a post with pictures of Safari Storme... they already have expensive ads in all sorts of media all over. They want to read creative stuff that follows the brief given... and if you were able to storme into it, good! :)

I'm currently doing a backpacking expenditure across Himalayas. This contest came just at the perfect time for me. Thus, thought of adding a couple of video and photo blogs of a few explorations that I made in the past one month :)

And yeah, I posted some 10-15 entries :P SealedSealed (but they are all either videoblogs or photoblogs :D)
