Hi!
I just got an email from DPC saying my photo was disqualified. I KNOW that it shouldnt be. Who do I contact about challenging this ruling?

Thanks!

April Fool´s Day is 1st of April. I got an email from admin reporting that my submisson has been disqualified, dated Thu, Apr 2, 2009 at 3:16 AM.

There is nothing wrong with my image... and I am not amused.

But it was still April 1 where the email originated :)

Yeah but the fool is on Langdon....as you have to play the prank before midday 1 April!!!!

Quote from - April Fools Day

" April Fool Jokes
April Fool jokes usually involve persuading someone to do something silly, like looking for hen's teeth, striped paint, a long weight, a left-handed screwdriver or some other non-existent thing.

However, you can only play April Fools on people before midday ľat midday the fun must stop or the trickster is told:

'April Fool's Day is past and gone,
Your 're the fool and I am none.' "


So ' . substr('//www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/1.gif', strrpos('//www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/1.gif', '/') + 1) . ' Langdon.....'April Fool's Day is past and gone, Your 're the fool and I am none.'

I also got a message about disqualification because of adding texture to my picture (????). I replied to that message. I´m also not very amused.

Enough of the whining already - you accept presents when it isn't yer birthday.

LOL, I am not in the freestudy but I love a good April fool. sounds like he really got to some of you. lighten up, its just a bit of fun.

My favourite one is when I worked at an computer supplier that was based next to a plumbing centre and sending the work experience kid in to buy 4 metres of fallopian tubing. They wised up to the gag and got him to come back and ask us if we wanted sterilsed or un-sterilised. I can still see his face when we was rolling up..

Another time when I was a youngun and worked in MacDonalds (all those years ago), and there was a kid there called Will, a bit slow, so was the brunt of all the gags, and we told him the Fizzy drinks machine had run out of gas and got him to run around the store with a black bin bag trying to collect CO2. When he had collected enough (and tied the ends of bags up to stop the gas escaping) we then got him to stock-check all the sliced pickles (which come in HUGE buckets), it was in the tens of thousands by the time his shift finished.

OK THAT is a good one. Very funny.

Try having a picture already in validation and then going to your email and having it say "Dpchallenge Disqualification". I thought it was for the one that was already in validation and not for the FS. That was scary!!!

They waited right till the end of the day. My email came at 11:17pm.

I just got my DQ e-mail this morning - half asleep. What a way to wake up! Grr!!!

Ha ha site council! You wait until next year - we will all get you back!!!

Very funny April fools joke. That's exactly why I logged in this morning. I got the email and was like WTF I didn't even get a chance to send in my original! Very funny. You got this newb!
04/02/2009 07:20:02 AM · #24
Luckily I already had gotten an email from a friend that theirs had been DQ, but I'm glad mine was only at 5.2 when I got it. If I had had a freestudy at 6.5 I would have affected me a lot more! (Oh, I guess I used clipart in mine, and that's why it was dq'd)
04/02/2009 07:21:43 AM · #25
I thought it was funny. They should have went out when people were awake to appreciate the joke though. I opened my mail this morning and knew it was a prank. LOL! Maybe next year!
