Announcement of Winners – The Gravatar Contest

 align boxBlog Owner and Post Author: Lainy


Before the Winners of Lainy’s Musings 3rd Blogoversary – The Gravatar Contest is announced, may I take this opportunity first, to thank each and everyone, who helped make this event another memorable milestone and for the third consecutive time.

To the V.I.P Sponsors who generously made the Contest appetizing with all their sponsored items, either in Cash or in Kind.

To the Contestants who by their participation, made the intent and purpose of the Contest what it was meant to be.

To all the Readers and Commentators who added their shine and fun to the Contest.

It is not without the magnanimous sponsorships that the attractive stake of Prizes would have been possible to celebrate Lainy’s Musings 3rd. Blogoversary – The Gravatar Contest. Once again, here is the list of the VIP Sponsors and the Prizes for the occasion.


Pursuant to the intended results of winners, names of the qualified contestants and non-winning contestants (three of the qualified contestants who didn’t make it, plus the five contestants for the consolation prize) were drawn in two separate draws at random.org. It is worth noting that it is random.org’s paid feature that was chosen Third-Party Draw Service“.

Here they are:

QUALIFIED CONTESTANTS (in alphabetical order):

And now without further ado, Ladies and Gentlemen, here are the Winners of Lainy’s Musings 3rd Blogoversary – The Gravatar Contest:

5th Prize: Ivy
4th Prize: Mel Cole
3rd Prize: Chie Wilks
2nd Prize: Twerlyn
1st Prize:  Chika Bits

Also established was a list of Contestants for the Consolation Prize

After the 5 Grand Winners were drawn, the Non- Winning Contestants were added to the Contestants for the Consolation Prize and another draw was made at random.org to determine one lucky winner for the USD 5.00, to wit:

NON-WINNING CONTESTANTS:

Ladies and Gentlemen, the lucky Winner of the Consolation Prize for Lainy’s Musings 3rd Blogoversary – The Gravatar Contest:

Consolation Prize: I Heart Contest

 

Congratulations to all lucky winners!

 

To conduct a fair and credible process in determining the prize results, I decided to rein the services from a neutral person to handle the draws. Uncle Che is the best choice. He is neither the contestant nor a sponsor (and obviously not the host 😀 ). Free randomization at random.org requires the presentation of results as screenshots, and since that could easily be “doctored”, their free service is NOT the best of choices.

To overcome and allay any possible suspicion on the methodology, Uncle Che instead, used the paid premium feature at random.org. It is called the Third-Party Draw Service. It permits random.org to monitor the randomization and host the results for public access.

As you can see, great diligence was paid to the matter of the results. Hence, it is my hope that there will not ensue any bickering about WHY I DIDN’T WIN! Hahahahaha! 😉

You can have a look at the results online at random.org following the links below:

Randomization of Qualified Contestants: Click [ H E R E ] for the results

Randomization of Non-winning Contestants: Click [ H E R E ] for the results

NOTE:
Time when the two Draws were conducted at random.org is reported as UTC. For GMT, you add (+8) hours. Therefore, what it means is that the 1st. Draw was conducted at 11:39:04 pm and the 2nd. Draw was at 11:55:02 pm. Thank You.


The Gravatar Contest – The Qualified Contestants

As a precursor to the Announcement of the Winners for Lainy’s Musings 3rd. Blogoversary – The Gravatar Contest due on April 25 (Monday) at 00:01 am, +8hours GMT (Manila), I would first like to inform the entries that qualified for the 5 Grand Prizes.

The Non-Qualified Entries

Try! Try! Try again

1. Anne from My Little Home

Reasons:
– there were no website links given for the two Comments at the VIP Sponsors page.
– there was no mention of the Blog Name and the corresponding website link for the Blogger’s Avatar.

2. Lady from Single Mother on the go

Reason:
The name of the Avatar’s Blogger is Anne at all her Blogs and not dannyannemj.

3. I Heart Contest from I Heart Contest

Reason:
Gravatar Numbers 10, 12 & 18 were not answered.

4. Lollii from i.am.loved

Reason:
Name of Blog given for Gravatar No. 5 is incorrect. It was given as “Amaiden’s Testimony”.

5. Bregie from Reveiling Oneself…Expressing D’Real Me

Reasons:
– No answer given for Gravatar Number 12.
– No display of Contest Banner at the Contestant’s Blog.
– No post published at Contestant’s Blog about Lainy’s Musings 3rd Blogoversary – The Gravatar Contest
– No link given for the aforementioned Post.
– No Comments link given for the required two Comments required, one at each of the VIP Sponsors’ Blog

To these 5 non-qualified Contestants, please don’t lose heart. I am grateful to you for your time and effort and the gist of The Gravatar Contest is the fun in participation and not solely on winning. Hence, you too will be sharing in the 9,000 EntreCard Credits.

Last but not least, there is the USD 5.00 ONE LUCKY WINNER prize that will be drawn by a random pick for those who did not win any prize.

Now that this is revealed and for both Qualified and Non-Qualified Contestants who may wish to refresh their memory of what prizes are possibly theirs for the taking, here is the link to the prizes.


And having said all this, I declare that the entries of all Contestants are now published and may be viewed at: Lainy’s Musings 3rd. Blogoversary – The Avatar Contest

Lainy’s Musings 3rd Blogoversary – The Gravatar Contest is as of this instance, formally closed.

Important Announcement – The Gravatar Contest

Revisions to The Gravatar Contest Rules

Regretfully, I have to announce that the closing date for Lainy’s Musings 3rd Blogoversary – The Gravatar Contest’s Close Date is postponed and amended to April 22 (Friday) at 00:01 am, +8 hours GMT (Manila).

It will NOT be as originally announced, “The Contest Close Date: April 20, 2011, 00:01 am, +8 hours GMT (Manila).”

In lieu of the aforementioned postponement, the announcement of the winners is rescheduled to April 25 (Monday) at 00:01 am, +8hours GMT (Manila).

Again, it will not be as originally announced, “April 22, 2011, 00:01 am, +8 hours GMT (Manila).”

My apologies to all Contestants, V.I.P Sponsors and those who may be closely following this Contest.

Extenuating circumstances now have made it impossible and impractical for me to keep to the original dates when I first determined both those dates.

Owing to unforeseen circumstance and due to its importance which I related H E R E, I will be out of town during the period of the original dates, thereby making it impossible for me to attend to the detailed work that is required.

I hope that this will allow more Contestants to submit their entries for The Gravatar Contest while the rest are held in suspenders, I meant suspense… for a couple of days more for the results. LOL!

Once again, my humble apologies to all.

Pandora's Box for Lainy's Musings 3rd Blogoversary- Gravatar Contest

The time has arrived at Lainy’s Musings 3rd Blogoversary for Pandora’s Box to be opened for The Gravatar Contest’s Prize List.

As you will notice, there are more prizes to be given away. This would not have been possible without the generosity and gracious support from the V.I.P Sponsors who made this Blog’s 3rd Blogoversary another memorable event.

Without further ado, for the eventual Winners and receivers, this is how it is.

First Prize:

Second Prize:

Third Prize:

The remaining 9, 000 EntreCard Credits will be equally shared by ALL Non- Winning Contestants courtesy of the following:

GOODLUCK!

Have No Fear, I Am Here!

Pardon me for having not updated this blog after a week of publishing the  Lainy’s Musings 3rd Blogoversary- Gravatar Contest. Life has been pretty busy offline. This is not a lame excuse though.

Nevertheless, I am here to give you a quick update and to appease the growing concern of contestants who have submitted their contest entries. At the commentary section of the  contest post, there were a few who “complained” that their submitted answers were visible for public view and scrutiny which gave these the apparent impression that their answers had been published and it contravenes the stipulated contest requirement that said thus:

For obvious reason, Contestants’ answers submitted at this Post’s Commentary section will only be approved AFTER the contest closing date.

Let me allay any fears. NO contest entry has yet been approved after submission. Contestants have no reason to fret. ALL comments shall only be approved on April 20, 2011, 00:01.

For this reason, I shall let you take a peek at Lainy’s Musings Dashboard just so to prove my point:

I understand your concern especially if you’re unfamiliar with how WordPress works. Once a comment is submitted and the blog’s commentary section is under moderation, the person who submitted a comment can readily see the comment submitted. But as often claimed, yes, after you have submitted your Comment, you will see this: “YOUR COMMENT IS AWAITING MODERATION” beneath your submitted comment.

This is still in consonance with the contest requirement because your Comment awaits yours truly to approve the Comment. And as said, “For obvious reason, Contestants’ answers submitted at this Post’s Commentary section will only be approved AFTER the contest closing date.”

Lainy's Musings 3rd Blogoversary – The Gravatar Contest

Displayed below is a slide containing the Gravatars of the Top Commentators (2008 to 2011) at Lainy’s Musings. To stop any of the slide images, please move your mouse cursor directly over the image, thereby enabling you to scrutinize the image. Remove your mouse cursor and the slide will resume progression to the next image frame.

(Incidentally, the original Gravatar image size is enlarged with a minimum amount of pixel distortion possible. This was done to enable a “better” view of the Gravatar image. My apologies that the enlarged image condition couldn’t be made any clearer .

Also, a good measure of time was spent to systematically layout all the requirements and rules and include one-stop features right here at the Contest Page.

If there remain any issue that is not explained clearly enough, please seek clarification with yours truly via the Comment Section here).

Lainy's Musings 3rd Blogoversary – Contest Preview

Lainy’s Musings 3rd Blogoversary - Contest Preview

Lainy’s Musings 3rd. Blogoversary - Contest Preview

Keeping in stride with the recent blockbuster Movie, Avatar, Lainy’s Musings takes a cue from it by making the Gravatar the theme for Lainy’s Musings 3rd Blogoversary – The Gravatar Contest.

What is a Gravatar and what is its importance to a Blogger?

Gravatar is an acronym for Globally Recognized AVATAR. It requires an 80 by 80 pixels square image registered to one’s email address.

Gravatar is a concept by Matt who founded WordPress. Since then, there have been other plugin creations that offers preset images for the Blog.

A Gravatar projects yourself to the rest of the web and anywhere you comment or leave a response your Gravatar will follow you. It lets you brand yourself.

A good example is my own Gravatar. Everytime I leave a comment, you shall see this image of myself (Move your cursor on any part of the Gravatar image, it will enlarge the image to get a clearer look):

My Gravatar at WordPress Blogs

My Gravatar at Blogger Blogs

Hence, the Gravatar is the image that you display all over the world wide web so that others are able to immediately identify and recognize you.

In other words, it becomes your personal identification. As a Blogger, this is indeed a prerequisite if you need to make your presence rapidly identifiable.

Lainy’s Musings 3rd Blogoversary Gravatar Contest

To return my gratitude to all Commentators’ support at Lainy’s Musings over the past three years, the TOP Commentators’ Gravatars shall be displayed and will make use of them for Lainy’s Musings Gravatar Contest for its 3rd Blogoversary Celebration.

The 3rd Blogoversary Contest is merely to celebrate my three years of blogging and to share some light hearted moments with Bloggers. In many ways it endorses the importance of the Gravatar for Bloggers and underscores the importance of Commentators for a Blog.

Do you need to get yourself a Gravatar?
