LOL
I knew it! We had all those times but have to use last moment. Exactly same as me. If Rodney extend 1 more week we will have few more. Other side of token it is not fair to you guys who send by next day air to meet closing time.
Anyway lots of luck to everyone.
Cheers! Beers are on me always.

I'm in the airport coming back from ISS Las Vegas, so I haven't been able to see how many entries came in during the past few days.

Most likely the deadline will be extended so that I have enough entries to judge

with all due respect, if you were going to extend the deadline, this should have been announced prior to the cutoff. especially since myself and others asked this several days ago. i spent almost $50 to overnight my entry so you would have it today!!! it would have cost me around $6 to send by ground (4 days).

@23spiderman Sorry, I thought I mentioned that I would extend it if necessary a week ago here.

After that, I was at ISS Las Vegas, so I couldn't really check to see if all the entries came in.

I'll be happy to send you $50 to cover your shipping. Just PM me your PayPal address

I bet my bottom dollars 23spiderman is not the only one who sent next day air. Because too many out there are like myself. last man go in to plane. Always. You will be surprise when you hit your door.
Anyway, your offer was real nice. I hope it will make people feel better. So what date will be? Whew $50 for next day air for 1lbs!
How was the show? Any luck on casino? Found best hamburger?
I think now extra 1 week is more than fair. 8/22nd. Most who want to apply they already did. Few missed the train. If they do not send in 1 week they have no intention to do so, no matter how many days you extend. Now let the Royale plays. All the luck to applicants.
Cheers! Beers are on me always.

Default Re: The Second Annual DTG BATTLE ROYALE (print off) is here!

it's not your fault i sent it in the day before, but we all played by the same rules. so extending the deadline now wouldn't be fair to those who have already sent theirs in on time. also, i replied to your comment about extending but didn't hear back and i didn't want to send mine in late "hoping" you would extend the contest. i waited until about 6pm to get the shirt on the UPS truck.

i do appreciate the offer, but again, it's not your fault. i was just saying that IF you were going to extend the deadline, it should be done prior to the due date. in my opinion, the due date was set a couple of months ago, just go with the entries you have. i'm excited to see how the results come out!

Yap, I see gentleman claim there. Also 23spiderman will have less competitors. so does to others who already sent.
It is up to Rodney's call. I don't want to be in his shoes now. If Rodney close deal today he does not need to pay you $50 agree?
Anyway, hope all will go well. It will.
Cheers! Beers are on me always.

I can see Sean's point, but Rodney did indicate that the deadline might be bumped by a few days to help the shops who are jammed at this busy time of the year. I guess it depends on how many entries Rodney actually receives. Frankly, I'd rather compete against 50 entries than just 3 or 4.

My thought would be to only extend it until this Friday ... that way no one has an extra "weekend" to tinker around trying to get a perfect print to enter into the contest.

Good luck to all!

PS: My entry was sent already.

Rodney could be like a teacher when they deduct points for being late. It's like a client asked us 3 months ago to make one shirt and we don't get it done in time, client be unhappy.
I'm not worried I made mine one night took few hours less sleep, and I dont even get much sleep lol.

Good luck to all.

Yes, the call for entries lasted several months, so there was definitely ample time for people to get their entries in

However, it's not uncommon to have deadlines extended to make sure enough entries are in. Things happen, people get busy, etc. Even Impressions Magazine sometimes extends their deadlines on their yearly Impressions awards.

To be honest, with the ISS Las Vegas show going on, I didn't even realize that today was the date of the deadline. I thought it was this Friday.

One thing I don't understand Sean is how on one hand you asked about getting a deadline extension but now that your entry is in on time, you are saying that a deadline extension would be unfair. Can't have it both ways

Either way, the new entry deadline is August 31st, 2012.

For anyone that really feels that after having 3 months to get an entry in before the deadline that they shouldn't have had to pay extra to get it in before the 15th if there was going to be an extension, feel free to send me a PM

Can i send in another entry and you can just throw away the other shirt? I only found out about this last week and had no time to test it. It would be nice to have tried a lil an not rushed the shirt out overnight. I dont want return payment or anything like that. Just to have chance in actually testing these images.

Yes, you can send in another entry if there was a problem with your first entry.
