wuguwa,

well, gmail automatically made them hyperlinks when I pasted them in...

but it`s irrelevant now, since fancylad has told people to re-send emails. He said the flaw was a result of the site being screwy.

u definitely didn`t do anything wrong. it`s just frustrating not knowing what was wrong with everyone else`s. i think that some sort of compensation should be offered. of and about the time zone thing: i`m on the east coast and i submitted mine about three hours early even by EST so i don`t think that`s it. did you do anything special with yours like make them hyperlinks or something?

Ah, damn. Now I feel bad for winning. A lot of people got over double what I had. Different time zones, perhaps? I almost missed the fact that it was 11:59 *PST* as well, if that`s the case. Otherwise, if I don`t deserve it, I don`t deserve it. o_o

So far fancylad hasn`t addressed it. I assume (or at least hope) he will when he`s on next.

I spent HOURS and HOURS finding those links. I went through over 2000 links to find the dead ones. And here someone wins with a measly 215.

"WOAH!
LordJohnathan is back? I missed him!"

Well when I first signed up around three years ago I posted like crazy. I left when I reached 1000 posts and didn`t come back for a year. Maybe thats what you`re talking about? Now I post whenever I have time. :-)

Shame about the incredible lameness of this "contest" idea.

I think there`s software (example)
that helps webmasters with link rot...

I have 3 things to say to this entire thing.

1: Why are people actually doing this?
2: Did I-A-B just not want to do the work themselves?
and 3: What`s the prize? if any?

So we get to find YOUR dead links FOR you, while YOU rake in cash for the advertisements WE are forced to see while doing so?

You have got to be kidding me.

These contests fail harder than trying to put a fire out with gasoline.

just go on news & politics and look backwards, like start from page 40, or whatever page it ends on.. if that makes sense. most of the news pages have been deleted, or moved, cos theyre so old.

Anyway, its a good way to get the site cleaned up, but to be honest im too damn lazy. Sorry Fancylad.


Also, if i recieved an unopened present it would probably stay like that. There could be anything in there!!
Now theres a great horror script!

Damn you all are whiners! So effing what if he needs help cleaning the site. At least he is creative and it WILL help. I got one question though, there are only 50 link pages at the bottom. Are those the pages that we go through or is there some more somewhere else too? FANCYLAD, lemme know OK? I am still going to try... good luck to all the NON-whiners B-|

Another question pls? Can we erase AtomFilms from this contest because weather the links to their page are dead or not, they STILL never play for me. I have to wait like 5 minutes (if I am lucky) for it to start to play and even then, it will pause for short bursts through out the videos. I hate AtomFilms... grrrr.

ok, ok... I will still brave my way through their sh*tty website in order to find a `real` dead link ...*glare*

I wouldn`t call it a `contest`, it`s more of like the admin giving away a gift to the most helpful person on IAB.

But hey, the website is free, so I ain`t complaining.

Arrrrr. Dead links tell no tales, although if you find enough of them, you win I-A-B`s latest contest. Simply roam I-Am-Bored.com, and find as many dead posts as you can. There are lots of `em. This URL is an example of a dead link.

Anything counts: a video that doesn`t play, a broken URL, a video game that doesn`t come up--it all qualifies.

Just cut-and-paste the URLs of every dead link you can find (along with your I-A-B user name) into an email and send it to me in one batch to [email protected]

The person who finds the most dead links wins an I-A-B shirt and a still-unwrapped gift I got this past Christmas. Any questions? Post them in this forum and I`ll answer them ASAP.

Contest starts now. It ends Sunday, January 13 11:59PM PST.

Good luck, mateys--it`s a re-gift weekend.
