I am just learning this game - but I’ve been the victim of a misunderstanding this week.
As a newbie, I’m restricted to five entries per competition. For a particular contest I submitted two entries, one of which was marked as on the right track. I submitted three further entries. Before they were assessed I got a message from the contest holder saying please submit more ideas. I replied to say that I had already submitted three, and unless he liked one of those I would be unable to submit more, because of the 5 entry limit.
What happened next - he marked one of those suggestions as on the right track, then he must have read the message and taken it that I was trying to wheedle him into liking one of my ideas. So now he’s downgraded both of the right track suggestions to no thank you.
I think his petty minded attitude might have cost him the name he wants.
What do you think?
