If we're doing it like last year, the cut-off would be 12/31/ 08, I guess, unless we are given more time to get all the guesses in.

And is Justin even available to ok it?

My guess is that Justin has to be the one to ok it and since he's obviously taken a year long trip to Zimbabwe, I think we're SOL. (unless he comes back I'm guessin this year's winner is SOL too)

I don't see the new contest thread yet but won't have internet access again until the 6th / 7th. Can someone put my guess of membership in for me if the timeline expires before then? I wanted to guess 73, 369. I won't have computer access by the time a response would be sent for a help ticket.
I would appreciate it greatly!

We know there's a lot of excitement around this time of year, but please have patience. That thread in Hotwire is confirmation from Justin that these contests are still ongoing. It is NOT the place to be posting your guesses for the 2009 contest. We will be posting an announcement about the 2009 contest shortly.

Thank you.

Ok. I'm willing to be the sacrificial lamb here - the scape goat. I know it's presumptuous to sound like I'm speaking for others, so I probably shouldn't try to do that. But I'm just reading the thermometer of other posts....

It seems to me that a contest that seems to usually close close to midnight on New Years Eve, EST, but hasn't even been set up by late 30th of December, EST, is like telling people you're throwing a New Year's Eve party but not telling where the party is or actually buying any food or drink.

I say that only because it seems that pushing disclosure of the details to the last minute is going to prevent some of people who want to participate being able to as they won't be near a computer for a short time and don't even know when to go out of their way to make arrangements to get themselves online so they can take part. Hopefully you guys plan to leave the window of opportunity open for several days so no one is prevented from playing by just lack of planning by the powers that be.

A lot of people who have loved Sploofus with their hearts, time, and money feel abandoned already, and waiting so late to give details about a contest so many regulars have been asking about for weeks is kind of pushing the envelope of loyalty, seems to me.

Ok, I tried to word it as diplomatically as possible, but criticism often just can't be worded any way but damaging, so I understand there are those who will not be pleased by my post. I apologize. But i stand by it.

We always try to be sensitive to making contests fair for everyone. We have been discussing deadlines and other details. We believe we are designing it fairly, and everyone will be able to participate. The deadline will be extended beyond Dec. 31. The official announcement will be coming shortly, and we hope it will assuage your doubts about how we've handled this.

I'd like to add that we apologize for any upset, confusion or other distress caused by the delay of the official announcement for the 2009 Guess the Membership contest. Rest assured that we are working on it, and we're doing our best to ensure all Sploofusers have an opportunity to post a guess. We do take your concerns seriously and appreciate your feedback.

Thank you again for your patience.

Thanks Diva for pointing out my boo-boo! Sploofunky caught it too and deleted and replaced it, but I appreciate you having preserved it for posterity
