Splash the Balloon Contest Prize:
Well since the contest have been going on for quite sometime and
have been extended more then expected so it was decided to give out some
Special Prize to the winner.
Member who reaches ZERO balloons left FIRST with no questions pending will be announced as our Splash The Balloon Contest
I am also looking out for some more prizes for the first and second
runnerups in our Top 100 chart and also a special prize for the member
with MOST Correct answers.
You can also help me in deciding a nice prize (ofcourse in budget
) through PM.
Last but NOT the least inorder to appreciate temasek and scs07 (sachin) efforts in the first round of the contest in which they were leading was cancelled due to coding errors will be getting prize too.
So what you all are waiting for guys... throw the balloons to all the members you know are participating.
Splash The Balloon Koi bachne na paaye !
Splash the Balloon Contest - Changes:
After the recoding of most part of the code the Contest is running smooth and is stable.
- In order to notify members of their pending questions it has been added to the navigation panel.
- This time to save on balloons going waste or blocked for 24 hrs with members who arnt playing or inactive for sometime we have restricted sending the balloons to members who are participating in the contest. Inorder to be counted as contestant in the game you need to send atleast one balloon out.
- While testing out the new code on the Production Server many members didnt knew it and started sending balloons which also did went to members with less then 20 balloons or were not participating in the contest. This thing further created problem with the Contest Helper script.
- All the balloons sent to & recieved from members who had less then 20 posts have been removed from the tables. This may result into few balloons increase/decrease.
- All the reported questions have been verified and corrected.
- Around 1000+ questions added to the system. (Thanks to the whole Dev team who have been patiently doing it.)
- Since the Dev Team members are also playing who have added questions to the systme and inorder to give everyone a fair playing level none of the Dev team member will get the question they have entered into the system. We will be continously adding more questions and will also be inviting members who want to help us in adding enriching our question bank then please do PM me.
- There are more announcement coming on our Newsletter Contest winners and our Radio Show winner too... so stay tuned!
