We know many are aiming for the Sony Vaio laptop that is being given away by Nuffnang Philippines but in order to be qualified, one must make a blog post about their experience last December 5-7 regarding the Sony Expo 2008 event.
But because of the glamorous prize, the contest was prone to abuse. A fellow blogger was also aware of this.
Actually the original deadline of the contest was last December 15, 2008, I was planning to post my entry around a day before the contest, but days before the deadline, Nuffnang moved the deadline to December 19, 2008. Buti na lang at hindi ko pa naipost yung entry ko since I know that there are a few “hoppers” out there who are trying to get an idea on other entries to gain an advantage.
So my plan was again moved to December 18, 2008, a day before the said deadline, so if you would look at my “A Day at the Sony Expo 2008” entry it was dated December 18, but to my surprise, after I posted it, the deadline was again moved to December 22, 2008.
Now this time, I knew that my entry, along with other bloggers who have also posted their entry just before the deadline are already vulnerable to hoppers.
I did not even tried to post my entry for the contest sa nuffnang blog, basta lang update lang ang tinitignan ko kung anu na ang pinaguusapan.
The announcement was supposed to be last December 23, 2008, but to my surprise, the announcement was moved to January 9, 2009.
Whoa panu na ito, ang dami dami na tumatako sa isip ko including other bloggers, kasi hindi clear, what about yung mga magrerevise ng entries nila panu yun, pati yung sabi ni Ms. Lena na yung mga nagblog just because of the prize or what I call, fly-by-night bloggers? Yup kasali nga din sila kasi nga nagblog sila about the event eh.
Similar to what Earthlin G said, hindi rin naman ako payag na malalampaso kami ng fly by night bloggers. Id rather lose to a real blogger kesa matalo sa fly-by-night blogger.
I hope Nuffnang would make clear mechanics about these…
Just my two cents
eto nga pala yung ibang entries ng A Day at the sony expo ng ibang bloggers.
