Re: Jam Europe trip - allaboard portathon

Easy, why the hate? Had you been as eager as me and followed the blogs and tweets from RIM employees you would have known that submiting beforhand was permitted.

You branding me a cheat is completely uncalled for. I've been nothing but polite on this forum.

Re: Jam Europe trip - allaboard portathon

I never said you cheated, I only may have implied that you might have not followed the rules and that's why you didn't receive an email. :smileywink: I can only speak for myself and I submitted during like you were supposed to (I followed the T&C not tweets).

Re: Jam Europe trip - allaboard portathon

Don't come on public forums with questions if you don't like the answers. You asked something and I gave a possible solution. Look at it this way, if nothing else you submitted 10+ apps to BB10 and hopefully you make good money off them from users. After all that's the real goal, not submitting things in a certain timeframe just to win prizes.

Re: Jam Europe trip - allaboard portathon

Just to elaborate on submission times. I submitted the first 10 apps in about 20 minutes, 6 of them are ports from PlayBook, so the product was already there and I had to submit only the bar files. The other 4 apps took about 4 minutes per app to create product description, upload graphics etc and upload bar file.Well, I have won few local StarCraft tournaments in the past, which means that I click really fast :smileywink:

 

Anyway I didn't won the Jam Europe trip. I guess vendors submitting only PlayBook ports were much faster than me.

Re: Jam Europe trip - allaboard portathon

Are you kidding? This is the last port correct?

I got all my approved but still have not received email confirming cash reward.

Just email about receiving the dev unit and wait for further email.

 

this whole port o thing is taking way too long.  If approved then just send us the stuff already.

Re: Jam Europe trip - allaboard portathon

Yeah, the one that was a month or so ago (the All Aboard PortAThon).

Three or four of them have been approved, but the rest are in App World limbo.

Got an email a few days after the portathon saying two were eligible, but not mentioning the others.

Very weird. I'm pretty nervous about it, not gonna lie.

Re: Jam Europe trip - allaboard portathon

I'm doing even worse. I got no email acknowledging my participation in allaboard portathon at all after having submitted 11 apps. And communication is very poor from RIM, I feel lucky if I receive any reply to my mail in 2-3 business days, and I don't expect the situation to get any better considering the portathon on 11th will add more to their work.

I was hoping to win a trip to Jam Europe, but now it looks like I'll be lucky to just get the promised cash reward.
