User Appreciation Contest Update


Due to the overwhelming amount of submissions recieved for the contest, I will be ending the contest early. As of right now, the contest will be ending at 12:00 CST on the night of Tuestday, September 20. This will give plenty of time for all submissions be processed by the following weekend. At which point the tickets will be assigned and I will plan to do the drawing on the 24th outside Orgrimmar on US - Bloodscalp.

After the contest finishes, I will be performing some additional database tweaks and optimizations. At that time, processing will be halted for a day or so while I make some changes that will hopefully help to increase the rate at which submissions are processed.

This is necessary because I do hope to continue doing these types of contests in the future. I think the contest has been a huge success in helping to cover many of the undercovered realm/factions out there and having more data is a great thing!

My plan is to do it at 12 noon on Saturday outside the gates of Orgrimmar on US - Bloodscalp. I might be able to do it on Friday evening though as it appears I will have all the data processed sooner than expected. I will keep you posted! Submissions will only be counted toward the contest until midnight tonight so be sure to get those last minute submissions in!

All submissions for the contest will actually have been processed by sometime tomorrow morning. I will get tickets assigned over the next couple of days. I will do the drawing (/random) outside of the gates of Orgrimmar on the US-Bloodscalp server at 8PM CST on Friday, September 23, 2005.

Will you lock the processing so that no processing is done for anything submitted after the contest close time? So that we can see exactly how many updates we have run for the contest.

That's not necessary, it's easy to query to find what data was submitted between the exact times.

I'll get a final tally done tomorrow as well as get tickets assigned asap. You'll be able to see what tickets you have on your Character listing page.
