I can think of only three reasons for this: my entry got lost, decisions are still being made, or I’m a finalist. To you lucky people who’ve been finalists, how long does it typically take before you get the news? As you can imagine, I’m going crazy.

Hope was high due to the delay, but you get what you get...
D.Kav wrote:It seems weird that the first notification I got was a certificate. (no call. no email.) Has anyone else had that happen? I emailed Joni to ask about it but haven't heard back yet.
D.Kav wrote:Finalist-- I got the certificate in the mail a few days ago.
D.Kav wrote:Question for those have gotten Finalist before: How did you find out? I'm still confused at not having received an email or phone call, just the mailed certificate. And does that mean the judging is done or is my story still under consideration for a prize? I don't know and Joni hasn't responded to my email inquiry.

D.Kav wrote:That's been my experience in the past as well, Athena. However, this time is different. I emailed (responded to her initial confirmation email) the day I got the certificate, and also a week later. Nothing. I don't know what's going on. Maybe there was a mixup and they didn't mean to send out any certificates yet? No idea. It's odd.
Hi Matt, I'm a lurker on the WoTF forum because it's still not being nice and allowing new folks to register. :( Anyhow, I saw where D.Kav received a Finalist cert but no call/email. Don't know if you'd be willing to pass along some info? I was also a Q3 V33 finalist. I received my phone call on 9/16. On 9/27 I got the call I wasn't a winner, but they would like to hold my story. Joni thought I'd be hearing about that by mid December. So I'm assuming the winners are all chosen for Q3. That doesn't help with lack of response for D.Kav. I haven't really seen any other finalists come forward though.
D.Kav wrote:Okay. So I finally just called Joni, which apparently I should have done a while ago. She said she had tried calling me (I didn't get the calls-- weird) and emailing me (I didn't get the emails-- weirder) and that she didn't get any of my emails (weirderer). How'd that happen? No clue. We basically concluded that we're all living in the twilight zone and nothing makes any sense.
Anyway, they've chosen the winners but haven't gotten around to posting the results yet. I am not a winner (boo) but finalist is still awesome. They're holding my story.
