I'd said I'd write for this one, 2 days back.

Left it for today, went blank in the ideas, a real - life incident reminded to me, at 10 'o' clock in the night, I come up with my FIRST EVER Humorous Take for a blog post in 2 hours.

I've made an earnest attempt. Let's see how my Olfactory Oopsy Daisy turns out to be! Laughing

Sorry, for repititive question. Reading other posts confused me all the more. Hence asked again. Still dont understand the category clearly though :-) 

Thanks Nandini. 

Nandini Deka

See renie's explanation on this page >> http://www.indiblogger.in/forum/topic.php?pageNum_Posts=6&totalRows_Posts=125&id=18390

 

The early bird prizes were given to the first 20 entries received, minus a few which didn't conform to the topic. Most of the entries were submitted withinhours of the contest going live! 

The IndiPattanis were chosen out of the next ten (approx) entries - basically the point of the Indi-Pattani prizes is to get more entries coming in early - it becomes difficult to make an extend/no-extend decision when all the entries come in the last hour!

 

so..its basically same as early bird

Rachh Agarwal

Oh is it. But I cant be an early bird. I posted my entry on the last date. :-P

Hey Ranjith,... is that true of what you say? : Only Indi Pattani winners are in the league for the big prizes.  If that's true, then there's some dejection to shared folks.. :( 

Ranjith
from hyderabad
6 years ago

I didn't say that. Someone said that it might be the case. It is not an official word from Renie.

The logic is - supposeperson A has submitted his post in the first few days and has won the first prize but not an IndiPattani. This is logically not possible because if his entry was the best, then it was better than those who have won the IndiPattanis also. Also, it is not possible that the judges didn't give him the IndiPattani as they wanted to give him the first prize at the end. In that case, what if much better entries are submitted towards the end of the contest?

But if the judges for IndiPattani and main prizes are different, everyone has an equal chance, Laughing

Ekta Khetan
from Mumbai

I would like to believe that blogposts that won "Indi Pattani" and not early bird vouchers would not be in race for final 3-4 prizes as they already won a prize for that entry. Unless, we ran short in nos of valid /good entries [which we clearly have not], it would not make sense to award same post multiple prize. However, one blogger can get multiple prizes basis the multiple posts that he/she created for the contest and that too purely on merit of the content and the quality of post.

Second thing that scares me is plag-modifcation, an abridged version of blogging wherein blogger[s] read the already published entry, take the idea from there, modifies, adds more and posts at last hour and win te prizes :( I have seen a lot of posts which are identicle in nature and like the "tablet" example that Ranjith once quoted, they may belong to it or the "inspired" theory. What say folks?

Rachh Agarwal
from Ahmedabad

I do not know the logic behind the Indian Pattani prize, but I sure have some hopes left even after the condition of #ConditionSeriousHai! Another point if they had to keep the Pattani winners out of the final race, why declare them now? Why not later only with the final winners! I just hope this is so not true. Everyone should stand an equal and fair chance!
Fairy Princess
from Delhi

I don't agree on the Indi-pattani post not winning big prizes. The reason: Indi-pattani is a kind of acknowledgement that the blogger wrote a good entry BEFORE time. And when the entry is good, why not consider it for a big prize, which are generally 1000x times better than Indi-pattani? If they stop considering Indi-Pattani winners for big prizes, I don't think anyone will write early because everyone wants a chance to win big and ultimately, the concept of Indi-Pattani will fail. I definitely wouldn't write early if Indi-Pattanis aren't considered for the final big prize. Smile Hazaar rupee ke liya kaun marta hai Undecided

Whoa!, The debate's quite on a rage now.So, I think I am still in contention and that's all that matters to me the most!! keeping fingers crossed!!!

Ekta Khetan
from Mumbai
6 years ago

Rachh and FP,

Seems you have not read my point right. I said Indi pattani and not "early bird" prize. 

Off course if a post was written much before time [and qualified for early bird] can stand a chance for grand prizes..there is no doubt about it.

The doubt is regarding the Indi-pattani prize wrt this contest where there is already an "early bird" prize given to first X no of entries. The "Indi pattani are chosen at different intervals extending till the last hour of contest. I still did not understand the logic of Indi Pattani here as I read some blogger who won latest Indi pattani had claim to posted her entry at last hour.

Yes , the argument of "why declare them now" is valid though and that made me thinking too.

But to say that the entries that did not made for Indi Pattanis [this contest] was not good enough and hence not chosen for Indi Pattani is not fair. Does this mean that "Indi pattani" is a sort of qualifiers here and top 3 winners would be chosen from them? Surprised

Nandini Deka
from Bombay

i think indi pattannis have equal chance for final prize...they are also one kinda early bird only --- patani means bird

Agree but then why don't we combine the "Indi pattani" and "early bird" together to make one? Why two names?

in this contest there was no indi patanis in the begining..there was only early birds....it was introduced later when everyone protested when it was said that early bird prizes will be chosen as per quality too....read the earlier posts in this thread also some of rio's thread where he raised the issue....only later indi patanis were added in too

Nandini Deka

and also this thread >> http://www.indiblogger.in/forum/topic.php?id=18393

 

so midway indi patanis were introduced for this contest....Laughing

Ekta Khetan
from Mumbai

ND..I am Aware... the question is not what happened...the question is Indi Pattani and Early birds are same..then what is the criteria and whether of Indi _pattani in this contest, the same post can be top 3 winners or nont...or the non qualifying posts for Indi Pattanis, if they are in race too [I believe they are] However I am unsure other ways..no offense intended/ no judgement is being passed....eeeeeks

Nandini Deka
from Bombay
6 years ago

no in this contest they are not exactly same cos they had protested when early entries were to be judged for quality too --- so now, the eary birds are chosen who posted first day itself or earliest and indi patanis are judged on quality too besides being early posted i.e supposedly 2-3 days before last date as renie said ....i'm as confused as you are if they chose from last entries too ( as one won..not sure abt the others )

Nandini Deka
from Bombay
6 years ago

i think early bird+indi patanis+plus the rest ~ all are in raceSmile ( 1st two categories are like a bonus )

Ekta Khetan

Whatever yaar Nandini.... results to announce hona maangta hi hai! waise bhi Ind pattani mein they have not chosen the blog posts but the bloggers..thus eliminate all questions whether they will be considered or not. Obviously they will be considered and looks like having high chance for top 3 prizes. SO Cheers...Results kab aayenge?

 Ind pattani mein they have not chosen the blog posts but the bloggers

No! They have chosen blog posts and not bloggers. But they didn't display the post links because at that time, the entries were hidden. Also, one blogger won two early bird prizeswhich proves that they have chosen blog posts and not bloggers.
