View Full Version : FilmJabber Announcement: Please re-enter contests as soon as possible

I wanted to let you know that due to a technical glitch in our systems, some recent contest entries, dating back to the beginning of January 2008, were not recorded correctly. As a result, I cannot guarantee that every one of your entries was properly recorded.

As a result, I invite you to please return to the FilmJabber contest section and re-enter any contest available on the website. I have also extended the end dates for contests that recently closed to give you another chance at winning - they will expire from January 31st to February 2nd, so make sure to enter now!

I have 24 open giveaways at the moment, so don't delay.

And, of course, I apologize for this huge inconvenience. I have fixed the problem and it will not happen again. On another note, I have selected winners from many of the December contests and will be sending out prizes (about 30 DVDs and then some) over the next week.

Thanks for your understanding,

Erik Samdahl

I got the email, too. I didn't recognize any of the sweeps on their site but I went ahead and entered one I'd like to win. It seemed a little strange but I know I've entered sweeps at their site under the old MovieSource name so I'm not worried about it at all. Just another weird Sweep Thing.

Did you notice the contests on the site (right hand side) were for sweepsadvantage?
PS - I didn't enter this one either and I got the email

Got the e-mail also and entered all the contests. Was that bad? Uh-oh, now I'm nervous....and now I'm not, because I have such a short memory, or ADD. Look at that squirrel! Happy sweeping everybody!:cheer3:

I got it, too. I'm not sure if I've entered from them or not (but I'm 95% sure I've entered through Movie-Source). I didn't do it, though.

Boo-hoo, I'm confused.

Yes, I got the email and I've also entered a few of their contests before.
I used my normal log-in and it went straight through.
Had I not already been a member it would have taken me to a registration page.

I went ahead and re-entered and had no problems.

I checked MySweeps and have entered some of their contests. So I went in and re-entered the ones I was interestesd in, but I did it from MySweeps rather than using the email. They are all 1x and I didn't get any error messages. As far as I can tell it's legit.

I know that I've entered from them, so I reentered all the ones I was interested in.

They just changed their name a few weeks ago, so perhaps that's my so many people are unfamiliar with them :-)

I also got an email today and thought is was very thoughtful of them to send out. I entered all of them again.

Thanks for the heads up.

I entered with them when they were MovieSource as well. If you are concerned, search expired sweeps for MovieSource and check if you entered. Good luck everyone.

I had a email in my yahoo acct. also and I DID NOT PUT THAT DOWN. So I don't know what is going on but I did go back into the site and re entered again..

Just weird how you enter a sweep and just put down one email and then before you know it they know your otherone...

I did it the same way.

That's right. The site used to be called Movie-Source.com.

Hi everyone,

This is Erik Samdahl, who runs FilmJabber (formerly known as Movie-Source.com). If you received that email, it was because you had entered a Movie-Source.com contest at some point over the last few months or so. Sorry if there was any confusion or concerns; the email and announcement were legit.

I did send out an announcement at the beginning of January discussing the change from Movie-Source.com to FilmJabber, but judging from the response to that initial announcement compared to this most recent one, most people didn't get the message.

If you have any questions, feel free to contact me at http://www.filmjabber.com/contact/

Also, if you participated in a Movie-Source.com contest but are not yet a FilmJabber member (or don't want to be), don't worry - you aren't subscribed to a spam list. That was the last email I plan on sending "in bulk" to past visitors. Unless you opt in to the newsletter, I have no intentions of sending out extra emails unless another major bug is found (hopefully that won't be the case, though).

Hope this clears things up!

BTW, for those of you wondering how I got your "other email address", the only way is that if you entered a sweepstakes with that email address at some point in the past. Sorry to disappoint, but I don't have a magical way to track down your other email addresses. :o)

Sorry for all the posts... the text link for Sweepstakes Advantage is just an ad - I will look into making it clearer that it is an ad. FilmJabber is not affiliated with Sweepstakes Advantage.
