@tom @ashley

Thanks for the contest.
I'd like to suggest for future contest that there be a better submission process.

The blog said we may contact andrew iirc, but he has answered none of my emails.

Also, the only verification my apps were submitted was from ashley saying as long as I emailed andrew@microsoft.com with my app then it was submitted. Problem is, were he has not responded to my entries, how do I know my emails are even getting to him, being read, not blocked, or missing information to make my entry valid.

I lost ambition in this contest because of this, it would be better if our entries could get notification to say yes, we got your submission. I've never seen a contest before were your submission is not responded to in some way.

Thanks.

@humanescape - competitions can be very time-consuming to run, and as we're such a small company we didn't want the fact we were running a competition to slow down the other things we're working on. So we really prefer to have it done this way. I'll ask Microsoft to see if they can be more responsive.

@humanescape

Apologies if we didn't get back to you sooner, hopefully you have now received an email from myself (let me know if you haven't received it). We get a lot of emails every day, so it's very hard to keep on top of them. If you've sent an entry to andrew@microsoft.com, then you can rest assured that we've received it.

@ashley

I just got a message from Microsoft about 10 minutes ago confirming my entries have been received (unfortunately it does not say which, but oh well at least now I know they are GETTING at least one entry).

Thanks for the quick responses as usual Ashley, you guys rock.

@chrisatms

Thanks! I did get it.

Apparently this one slipped through the net, MS say they've been replying to all entries. So hopefully it's all sorted now!
