Android Port-A-Thon email rewards..

I upload 19 apps in the last Android Port-A-thon.. but I received the next email..

 

Hello! 

Because of YOU, the BlackBerry® 10 Community Port-A-Thon was a huge success. Keep reading to learn about the reward(s) you have earned. 

Congratulations! You are eligible for the cash reward. 

Here is a list of the apps you submitted which are eligible for rewards:

Just 2 apps were elegible from my 19.. but I participate in the Android Port-A-Thon.. not in the Community Port-A-Thon..

All my apps are ported from Android... I dont know what is wrong.. Anyone received the email with the posible awards??

 

Thanks. sorry for my english..

Re: Android Port-A-Thon email rewards..

I got a similar email. And am as confused as you.

 

I participated in both the community and android portathons, and my email  lumps all of my apps into one list. I was told specifically we could participate in both portathons and get rewards from both by a RIM person during the chat sessions -- 20 apps for each, $100 for each x 2 portathons, so 4K total limit + device rewards.

 

I am hoping it was just an error with how the email was sent.

Re: Android Port-A-Thon email rewards..

Yep.. You could upload 20 from the all differents ways..

20 from android

20 from air

20 from.. etc..

So.. dont worry.. I guess..

 

At least you have all our apps in the list..  but I just have 2 from 19.. 

I send an email to rim.. I hope its a mistake..

I have all the emails with the confirmation that upload correctly..

Re: Android Port-A-Thon email rewards..

According to the Android Port-A-Thon FAQ (https://developer.blackberry.com/offers/androidportathonfaq/) your app is only valid for one reward. So even if you were registered in both Port-A-Thons, you will only receive one reward.

 

But even then, if all your apps were ported from Android, that doesn't make sense. You should contact RIM. Keep in mind that a free and a paid version from the same application only counts as one version too.

 

And if you already had similar applications submitted in the App World, this will also not be valid.



A like is always appreciated,
but a nomination for BB Elite even more :-)

I got email in which they request payment info for rewards but its for Community portathon, and I participate in both , Android and Community ones. Anyone got this email, but for Android portathon?

 

Also, how can they distinguish between apps, i submited 20 apps for Android, and 20 apps for Community (Cascades)?

Re: Android Port-A-Thon email rewards..

<guessing>
They will probably first filter out all Android apps. Which are rather easy to discover. And then when they have filtered out the Android apps, they will start filtering out the Community apps (see if they are according to the specifications etc).
