So I’ve been following their little daily competitions, and was pretty chuffed when, on Tuesday, I knew the answer to the question (not “What is the matrix?”, a different question).
I answered … correctly! Mine was the second correct answer, and I refreshed a couple of times to make sure. Result!
This morning, I realised I hadn’t received an Inbox message telling me to come get my t-shirt (result!), so I checked their page.
Okay, hold on a second. What? Okay, despite the fact that two of the “winning” comments are EDITED, which is suspicious in itself, you know that timestamps don’t lie, right?
It’s no big deal, I’m over it (and of course the judges’ decision is final and no correspondence will be entered into) but, it’s the principle of the thing, no?
If you’re going to play fraudulent little games with tiny little things like this, how can you possibly have any credibility? It’s ridiculous.
Timestamps. Don’t. Lie.
update – HIFA sent me a message. I applaud them for that.
