No Confirmation Email?

Postby hannahAZOK » Fri Feb 01, 2019 10:02 pm

So, I never ended up getting a confirmation email for my Q1 entry and I'm wondering... should I be concerned? Has this happened to anyone else? I've emailed Joni and haven't heard back (that was a couple weeks ago now) and though I did get a confirmation for my Q4 entry, I never ended up hearing back from the contest about my results? (Ima go out on a limb and say I got an R? XD) Considering WoTF has just kinda gone dark on me, though, I'm starting to think the system is somehow eating my email or something...

I guess I'd like to know for sure whether or not my Q1 entry was received, because if not, I can just reenter that and procrastinate on my Q2 story! :P (Though on the flip side, I'm really gonna have to buckle down if they did receive my other story.) Is there any way to check on the website if your story from another quarter was received or not?

Sorry about the troubles, Hannah. Q4 is easy. Results are posted on the WotF blog. So if your name isn't there, you know the results. But on Q1? If you submitted via Wizehive portal, you should have gotten a confirmation from the system on the portal page when you pushed submit, as well as an email from Joni a day or two later. Since it's been a couple weeks since you wrote her about the matter, I'd write to Joni again to verify whether or not it was received (after you've checked your spam file, of course). It's a busy time of year for them at ASI with all the plans for the workshop and gala.

And no, there is no other place to check. Just results blog, and writing directly to Joni.

I hope you figure it out. Do write your next regardless.

There's something odd going on there Hannah. When I recently submitted my Q2 entry, I got an automatic entry received reply within minutes and another one from Joni the next day.
And I've received results for each of my entries. And Joni has answered several questions I've asked. Mails aren't going into Spam are they?

Thanks for the advice, guys! And the confirmation that you've heard from Joni/the contest recently, Tim. I think I may just email Joni from a different email address to see if that makes a difference... as far as I know, there's no mail from Joni or the contest in my spam.

Fingers crossed!

Your confirmation comes from GalaxyPress. Perhaps it's in your junk mail folder.

Or maybe you inadvertently deleted it out of frustration for not getting a winning notice for Q4 - wotf011

Yes, clearly my subconscious was upset and wanted to save my conscious self the heartbreak. XD

I have since gotten in contact with Joni, though, and she's confirmed that my stories for both Q4 and Q1 were received, so yay! Now I'll just have to keep an eye on that pesky subconscious mind of mine... >.>

Hannah,

Were you ever able to figure out why you didn't get any of the submission confirmations or results notifications?
