No more Waiting List!

I think it’s safe to say that the waiting list has outlived its usefulness.  When we first launched LookContests.com, I wanted to make sure that the site would be reasonably fast and responsive, so the waiting list was a way of managing the number of users and ensuring that new users were added only when I was comfortable that they wouldn’t negatively impact the existing users.  So far, the site is holding up very well, so I’ve approved everyone who was currently on the waiting list, and I’m comfortable with the idea of opening it up to anyone who wants to join.  Tell your friends!

Also, the old way of creating an account was, admittedly, confusing.  You had to go to our partner-site, ContestCanada.net, and create an account there.  This has been changed.  Clicking on ‘Register’ now lets you sign up directly on LookContests.com, and your account is active as soon as you hit the ‘Submit’ button.

Lastly, you can now request a password change by going to the Login page and clicking “Password Reset”.  I’ll be adding more functionality for maintaining your account soon.

As always, if you have any questions or suggestions, I’d be happy to hear them.



Membership Update

OK, I’ve sent and re-sent invitation to everyone who has added their email address to the waiting list over the past few days. If you’ve signed up but still haven’t receive an invitation from me, please send me an email at webmaster@lookcontests.com

Now that that’s out of the way, I can hopefully turn my attention to the list of suggestions and enhancement requests that I’ve received over the past few days. There’s been some really good ideas. If you have any feedback, now would be a great time to let me know. If all goes well, I’ll make a bunch of changes over the next couple of days and do an update of the site sometime over the weekend.


Catching up on the new Memberships

As you may have noticed, I’ve run a couple of posts on ContestCanada.net to invite new members to LookContests.com. There’s been a lot of interest and, to be honest, I’m struggling to keep up with approving the new accounts and responding to questions and comments. The biggest problem so far has been that a lot of the automatic e-mails that are sent from the site are being marked as spam and not making to the proper inboxes. I’m trying to sen the invitations manually to ensure that they arrive safely, but it’s a slow process.

If you’ve added your name to the waiting list but haven’t yet heard from me, please rest assured that I will be contacting you soon. If you want to expedite the process, send me an e-mail at webmaster@lookcontests.com and I’ll get back to you ASAP.
