    A few weeks back I entered the Pick the Day of the 50,000 Member Contest.
    I went to look at the spreadsheet and to my surprise I am the only one that picked that date, but next to my guess in red says the guess has been taken.
    Could someone tell me how is that possible since I was the only one that picked that date? 4/20/2010.
    How do I contact someone about the error?

    That tells everyone else that the date has been taken by you.

    It can't be. There are more dates without the red date taken. Have a full look at it. It also has when the person posted their guess and the ones that guessed after someone else has the red date taken, not the first person, the second one.
    I am the only one for that date, so why the date taken?
    Sorry I am right, otherwise what about all those other guesses?

    I see the problem. If you look at the very bottom, ShiningFeather has already chosen that date. It is just not updated yet.

    You're right. That was a mistake on ChookHappy's final post. There is only ONE 4/20/2010.

    44 satay 4/19/2010

    .
    153 JCoogle 4/19/2010 date taken

    .
    313 smallbluejellybean 4/20/2010 date taken ******************

    .
    75 pax12 4/21/2010

    .
    14 poultryhaven 4/22/2010

    EDIT: BTW, the error's being there won't make any difference; if 4/20/2010 is the winning date, you will still win.

    OOPS!

    Here's the bottom of Post #312

    4/20/12010 286 Shiningfeather

    This is at the bottom of ChookHappy's final post that I mentioned in my first reply to you:
    286 Shiningfeather 4/20/2010

    ________________________________________________________________
    Your post is #313 , so Shiningfeather had already chosen that date.
    The mixup was caused by the typo of the year being 12010 instead of 2010. So the numerical order caused the mixup.


    BYC 50,000 member will happen on the 4/20/2010

    Yippy not taken!!!

    The spreadsheet is just a guide, but everyone is responsible for making sure their dates are not taken and at the end of the contest what will really count is when the winner posted in the contest thread.
