A huge flaw in this day 5!

    As many of you probably know, day 5 requires you to make a YouTube video where you get as creative as possible to express how much you want the phone.
    "Aha", I thought, "I like making videos, and it doesn't require you to spam your friends." So I participated.
    It was only once my video was published did I read that the first 100 videos would get the invite. Now surely I can't be the only one here thinking that's completely unfair? Some people are at work, at education. Some are even sleeping.
    Surely it would've been a better idea to make it the best 100 videos. That's what I assumed it'd be, and that's why I made some effort. I hope some of you agree with me. I've tagged my video here, because why not.

    Oh OK, I wasn't paying attention to the other days really. As soon as I saw 'tag your friends', just no.

    Actually it is the admins who decide if they will stick to their rules or break it and you would not know.
    Just don't forget the golden rule : he who has the gold, makes the rules :p

    A race would work if it was held in one timezone. Worldwide just doesn't work and puts people at unfair advantages/disadvantages. So many people would be at work or asleep when this day was posted!

    Surely it would be a better idea, but then they would actually have to watch all of them... :p

    really nice video though. and don't worry even if you're not among the first 100, there were several videos shorter than 30 seconds, so maybe you have a chance...

    Oh yeah, it's much more efficient for them. But it just really annoys the people who get unfair chances. And that would be annoying people who are already royally pissed off! But thanks a lot mate, I'd like to think so.

    Yeah, that's true.. Atleast they held the 5 different races at different times to try to circumvent that, so hopefully you got to enter in atleast one of them!

    The YouTube one was the only one I entered because I didn't want to spam my friends! But I see they did try and do different times. A normal competition would've been so much better though!

    Day 4 wasn't very spammy either, just had to post a tweet with a hashtag, not even tag friends or anything. That was the first day I could stand participating :p
