A polite reminder

Morning folks.

Sorry to pop up on your dashboard again so quickly this month, but can I please remind you all to check our rules before you enter your work.

We believe our rules are pretty flexible and reasonable and not as tough as those on some challenges. So in fairness to everyone who enters, most of who do observe the rules, can I again remind you of the following:

1) Your entry to Stampalot challenge can be combined with up to five other challenges, so a maximum of six challenges in total.

2) If we find you have added more challenges to your entry at a later date.....sadly some folks do........and yes we do check as we all visit a second time when we do our winners selections, then your entry will be discounted.

3) You must mention our challenge in your post along with a direct link back to this blog.

4) In line with most challenges our rules do not allow backlinking.....this means your entry must be posted/dated the day you enter our challenge.

**********Up till now I have always tried to mail peeps or leave a polite message to remind them if they do not meet the rules but this takes a lot of time when myself and the DT could be visiting other entrants.

Stampalot Design team all work very hard to make this challenge fun to enter and ensure all entrants receive comments from us. Plus the prizes on offer from the guys at Stampalot are always rather special.

So please do show your appreciation by observing the simple rules. It is YOUR responsibility to ensure your entry meets the rules and any that do not will have 'not eligible' alongside your name on Mr Linky and not qualify for the prize on offer*******************

  1. I just can't believe that you are having to remind people of this - crazy and spoils the whole idea of challenges which really is to be given a theme and work to that- to 'challenge' yourself to do something different.
    Oh dear do hope that the problem stops.

  4. I'd just like to say thankyou to Sir Stampalot for persevering with the rules - I have come across challenges which occasionally are not so thorough and it is frustrating when entries and, I hate to say it, randomly picked winners have not followed the theme or stuck to the rules...so even though it's not a nice thing to have to nag about thank you for making it fair for those of us who try hard not to break the rules...Esther x

  5. Nice to see a challenge blog that does stick to the rules. You see some of the randomly picked ones and wonder how on earth that matches the challenge brief! I don't think I have ever knowingly got it wrong, but I apologise if I have.
