We’d like to thank all the people who signed up for the free ball python contest that we were running. As of 5pm EST today (8/15/09) the contest has ended. The winner will be chosen tomorrow at 5pm tomorrow with specific instructions for verification purposes. Once verified we will be in touch with BHB Reptiles to complete the transaction.
There were over 200 sign ups for the contest, but over 50 people were disqualified. All of them for not verifying their email address. Sorry, but we weren’t willing to risk entering email addresses into a contest that the owner hadn’t taken the time to verify. We also manually removed a few entries because they seemed a little fishy to me. I’m sorry, but freebpcontest1@email_address1, freebpcontest@email_address2, freebpcontest@email3 etc, etc, etc stinks of multiple entries from the same source. Rather than taking a risk I made an administrative decision and removed all entries of that kind.
We’re going to be hold another contest at the beginning of September but the only way you will know about it is by being subscribed to our RSS Feed. Please note this is different than being subscribed to the email feed, but more contests will be held through that method as well in the future.
