#fancybonanza, what a kerfuffle.

I was hoping to draw the Fancy Bonanza prize today so I went to look through the hashtag on Twitter and discovered… I couldn’t see tweets older than 6 days old! Argh! I thought I had 30 days of the hashtag archive to play with! This meant that I couldn’t draw the prize in good faith because two days of entries had been wiped from Twitter’s history and a bunch of people would miss out on the giveaway even though they’d entered. BAD TWITTER.

After having a minor panic attack, Nick’s helped me think through the solution. We’ll be re-running the giveaway and this time we are tracking the hashtag entries in a number of RSS readers (yay backups!) The #fancybonanza redux will now close December 14th at 12pm AEST (+10GMT), and I’m going to be giving away TWO more necklaces (blue and green) to two runners up.

It really blows that everyone has to re-enter the draw and I’m so sorry we weren’t aware of this Twitter limitation before we ran it. I’m so bummed out because I wanted to ensure that the winner would receive their necklace and brooch by Christmas!

Let’s do this again!

The grand prize!

• an ivory No Diet Talk brooch,
• purple hologram fat necklace and
• a custom digital portrait of you.

One of two runners up prizes

• a blue or green fat necklace.

  1. I also recently discovered the limitations of twitter’s history to my dismay and HORROR! It’s great you found a solution and thank you for running the contest!
