Jeez you people are psyched!! And we couldn’t be happier. But we have received a fair amount of questions pertaining to this contest so here you go. Hope this covers it.
Q: Can I enter more than once?
A: Each code is good for one entry, so yes as long as you have more than one valid code than you can submit multiple entries.
Q: Will I retain ownership of my entry?
A: Nah. Everything submitted becomes property of Matador. Of course, the winner will be credited on the record (and thus thoroughly blogged about and locally hi-fived).
Q: MY CODE ISN’T WORKING!!!!!! MY LP DIDN’T HAVE A CODE INSIDE!!!!!!!
A: Deep breath. Email firstname.lastname@example.org and we’ll replace it.
Q: I live in Belarus. Can I enter?
A: Belarus is actually AWESOME. But sorry, no. The contest is open to U.S. and Canada only.
Q: Can I log on to the website more than once?
A: Yes. Your code is not marked as “used” until you submit it with an essay. Meaning you can enter your code, log in, collect your thoughts, spell check, have a coffee and then go back and submit your entry.
Q: What is the deadline for the contest?
A: January 1st, 2011… or 1/1/11… or New Year’s Day 2011. However you wanna look at it.
