It has happened to me twice that the new contest notification only arrived at my mail box after it was showing on SH website for as long as 15 to 30 minutes. When I finally ‘discovered’ the contest, there were already closed to 100 entries. I want to know if this is normal? Does anyone experiencing the same thing too?
@Scop, there is a bit of delay in notifications since we send out several thousands of notifications after the contest goes live. If we send them all at once, some ISPs can treat them as Spam/ Promo emails - therefore, we try to manage the send rate, so usually all notifications are delivered within an hour of contest going live.
