I was not here - and when I logged in Wednesday to put one up - Mike had already put one up. This is almost the same as the last couple of contests where it came directly from a user - I just did not put this into Google Docs since Mike had spent the time to draw something up in Ms Paint. No one gave Mike permission to create a promotion while I was out, he did for himself and for you guys. He offered his own money to pay for the promotion, and I decided to make it official when I saw it. If jackxbob came into the thread and posted a question (which happens all the time on Saturday promotions) and people want to answer it with our without my permission of it being an official promotion, then so be it.

I know most people understand that I am an actual human being who has a real family just like they do, but this is my job. And I let you guys down by not posting a promotion within the time I allotted - so instead of re-creating the wheel, I ran with the one that Mike had created. This is not a normal circumstance, and if you do not want to participate in it then that is your own prerogative.

Also, I do not feel like my response was harsh in any way, shape, or form. I was not intended to be harsh, but rather explain that I had a family issue and missed the promotion and was going to allow Mike to run this promotion. If people do not like it because I didn't come up with it - then there is nothing I can do for them. Will a situation come up like this again? Probably not. One of the main reasons I allowed Mike to run the promotion (and run is a loose term, all he did was create it) was because he had spent the time and effort into putting together an image and the idea. If he would have just posted the questions, again like everyone does in the other promotion thread, then I would have created an "official Google docs promotion", but I felt like he had spent the time to help out members so I was going to let him run with it.

To answer your first question, if you did not know it was official until Wednesday - then you could still easily submitted answers to get in by the time I said it was okay to do. Right now there is no where near 40 responses, so you can still enter and win if you choose to do so. Also, I do not want anyone to feel sorry for me or anything like that, but I do know that this is a business. And I want my members to be happy and if something comes up then I want you to know the truth of why I let you guys down.

Just so U2BMATH & Kohler know, I wasn't complaining about the format, I just wasn't sure what I was supposed to do. I think the promos are great, what ever format they come in. Thanks to both of you!

I did not answer 'cause I didn't know!!

I thought #4 was OJ Simpson - football - I don't know how many charges/convictions. He is in jail now (I think)

I don't know the players faces well enough to know more--by the way

#2 Michael Vick - football - animal abuse - 23 months in jail.
#5 Pete Rose - Baseball - tax evasion - jail time - kept out of Baseball Hall of Fame for Gambling

That's why I didn't answer.......I did not know......I'm not a sports fan at all.

If your not here Kohler, then your not here....no biggie, I for one say real life comes first, no matter what. What is 3 cents or $1,000 to what you must do with what life throws you.  Nobody had any problem with you not being here. I for one don't care if a promo is missed because you have other things on your plate. I don't feel you have ever let us down.

You and Mike made it sound like we were complaining, when some of us were wondering if this was going to be approved as a good promo.  If your giving Mike a green light to submit promos in your absence, okay. I for one did not know that, or missed the memo.  All I was trying to do was obey the Fusion Cash rules.

You both did insinuate that we were complaining or can't be pleased, and that's just not fair.  We don't know who is approved to initiate promos...or I might be out of the loop here.  Also, I didn't know that we were doing both the posting for some promos, and the form (you make up) for others.  Again, my fault for missing that memo/post too. I thought you made up the forms to "replace" the posting on the forum.

Your correct. If we don't want to participate, we don't have to.  At the same time, if we don't, that doesn't mean we are complaining.  That means that we either don't know squat about what is being presented (me), or we want to make sure this is a "legal" promo coming from Fusion Cash staff (me again).

I for one voted to do away with the Tues. and Sat. promo and have just one big promo for the month.  It has to be a hassle getting 2 promos up and running every week.  I wouldn't like to do it.

KOHLER, Thank You Very Much for even thinking to explain any situations or issues in your personal life to Any Member on this Forum.

I think by now, your loyal followers {KOHLER GROUPIES} as well as those who regularly participate in your Scheduled Promos
WOULD KNOW that if the Promo is not posted by You on Tues/Sat, SOMETHING HAS COME UP TO PREVENT YOU FROM DOING SO!!  

The only question that needs to be asked/answered by a FC Member is...

"Do I wanna participate & possibly get $$$ ?"         Yes or No   :wave:

Nope.....I don't recognize any of these faces except Mike Tyson, and won't copy someone else's answers.

Integrity and Honesty is part of the game here, isn't it? Do you go do the research yourself, and find your own answers, or do you just copy and paste from someone else, HOPING they are right? If you choose to copy and paste, then you've cheated yourself. If you choose to do the research yourself, then you can feel proud of your accomplishment. Even when Kohler presents his contests, don't we all get an "Idea" for which team to vote for, by seeing how others are voting? Don't we all take stabs at numbers, based on what others are guessing? I know I do. Is that considered cheating?

I volunteered my own money to help out here, and Kohler opted to make it his money. But no one else's money is in jeopardy here, so why is there such a fuss about this game?

You know, I can't help but feel offended with the people that are saying they don't want to play because it's like cheating, it's no fun, it's not Kohler initiating the contest, the standardized form isn't being used. I'm so sorry I ever stepped in to help, and I'll be sure not to do it again. I'm sorry I cared to want to help out. You know, if you don't all want to play, don't. You don't have to voice it, and make the person, ME, feel bad for giving a rat's  :bootyshake:

Kohler, maybe you ought to withdraw this contest before it snowballs into something we don't want it to become. Feel free to award those that participated. And I won't bother walking on the Holy Ground again. Sorry I tried.

Mike

Mike,
I'm going to be the first to step up to the plate here and apologize because I didn't mean to offend you with my response. I happen to think that you stepping in for Kohler was very kind of you, and I don't have a problem with it at all. It just felt very awkward to me to post answers that were already "on the board", per se. You are right in that we should each do our own research, which I would have done, but it just felt weird to me that everyone would have the same answers, pretty much. I happen to think that you come up with some pretty brilliant ideas. As a matter of fact....the other game you posted a while back (having to do with the Google search), I spent a good couple of hours late one night trying to find an "A" name that would yield a high number, but gave up because first, it was late, and second, I knew I wasn't going to be able to beat the top number that had already been posted.

When I said that I like picking the winners of different sporting events, it's because I don't follow sports other than football, and I like to see how well I can pick 'em. I don't look at others answers.....I like to go with my gut feeling and see how well I do.

I hope you'll accept my apology and I'm sure that I'm not the only one that did not intend to offend anyone. You have a great knack for thinking up great promos, so I hope we'll see some more from you down the road.

The only ones that I knew were the last two - Mike Tyson, Boxing and Pete Rose, Baseball so that's all I'm putting in.  After it was first posted I didn't know where to answer it at, I was out of town yesterday and this is the first I knew where to put the answers.
