Un-finilizing contests

Blog Posted:7/11/2018 12:05:00 AM

Dear Soupers!

I need assistance with un-finilizing my contest "Grens Evergreens # 4 Cilla Black". I judged the contest, but must have clicked something incorrectly as on the "Contest Winners / Status" page it does not show the winners list. Instead there is a text "Winners not chosen".

I have tried to un-finilize the contest on the contest admin page, but without success. If anyone has had a similar problem, please let me know if there is a way to fix this.

In the meantime I wish to thank all the poets who entered my contest, and apologise for this mishap with regards to judging. Hopefully I can get this fixed soon and submit a winners list fort he contest.

Try this.. go to your contest page ..where it says lock contest, make sure you click unlock, scroll down to the bottom and unfinalize. Now go back into your contest, make any changes you want and then finalize again. But there is a time limit on doing this. If that fails you are going to have to ask admin for help.

I suppose it has been too long for that to work, I have only done it, right after when I noticed a mistake, hope you get it sorted out soon.

Thanks, Constance. I've tried doing that, but it won't unfinilize the contest. I need to wait for admin to help me out. T.J

Hi Teppo. I am just reading your blog here about your contest. I didn't enter it, but maybe you can somehow list the winners here as a blog post until it is fixed? If the winners list is gone, maybe try the all poems entered list and pick out the winners again, to put in here? Just ideas. Good luck :)

I have the winners list, but it has only the poems and not the names of the corresponding poets. Thank you for your suggestion Heidi. T.J

Did you save the changes you made on the winners page TJ. Go back in and try redoing it, then save the changes before you finalize..

Thanks Joseph. It will let me redoit, but does not allow to save changes (not activated). T.J

I have done other weird things to myself when I used to do contests, and my only hope was in going to Soup and asking them for help. They are able to get into your contest and make it post, Teppo, so good luck. Just go to the bottom of the screen where it says "contact us" (though you may have to wait a while!)
