Claiming your Google GHOP Prizes

Post by AmyStephen » Tue Jan 29, 2008 11:06 pm

I hope you are all staying involved in the Google updates on How to Claim Your Google Prizes. Leslie Hawthorn sent an email worth reading. Make certain you also take time to do the things needed to get your stuff from Google. If you have questions on that process, feel free to respond in that thread to Leslie. She responds to everyone.

Earlier, I sent PMs to those who were contestants at the time asking those who are interested to share a picture of themselves, their name, and a brief description of their involvement in GHOP. If you have not had time to provide this, or if you were not asked for this (which would either be because you are a newer contestant or simply because I made a mistake  :-[ ), please consider sharing this. To do so, just email me at AmyStephen at gmail dot com. We will use this for presentations and for sharing with the Joomla! community at the conclusion of this contest.

We sincerely appreciate the time and energy and passion and commitment and skill that you applied to this contest while you produced amazing things for the Joomla! community. Thanks!

Amy :)

Branko -

I am sorry you are having trouble. I sent a note to Leslie, explained the situation, and copied you on the note. Leslie is very good about responding and she does a great job taking care of these things. I expect we will hear from her soon.

Thanks!
Amy :)

I received my t-shirt few days ago, but I have found free time to take photo, now. Of course my page on Joomla! Docs has been updated. This photo is with dedication for Amy, Marieke & Michael (alphabetically, ordered by sex). MySQL methods are really good and work in real life ;P

Cheers!
