More Than 10 Submissions

Written by Scrivs on August 7, 2008

In my last post it seems that some people actually believed that only 10 sites submitted to 9rules for Round 7 and therefore only 5 in Round 6. Sarcasm is sometimes lost online or you just don’t know me or the fact that 9rules rocks the boat. I won’t report the number of submissions, but it’s not even close to what people are thinking in the previous comments.

When I say twice as much as Round 6 I mean it and Round 6 was a large number. With that out of the way enjoy your weekend.

    The first commenter played along with you afaik.

  2. MichaelG Says:

    So it’s quite a few more. Maybe like even 16 or 17.

    Looking forward to the stream next week.

    oh well, bring on November.

    Well, FinalDog is submitted this round along with no doubt hundreds and hundreds of others. I think this is my first go round so we’ll see what happens, but I’m glad I got the submission in any way.

    Best of luck to everyone.

    The world evidently thinks 9rules is going downhill πŸ˜›

    I giggled when I read that, and thought to myself how funny you guys were πŸ˜€ Too bad that there were people who thought that was true..

  7. MOin Says:

    I was shocked! Obviously I didn’t get the joke either.

    When are you going to announce the winners?

    I hope I’m one of the lucky few who get approved. ^-^

    Expect the unexpected as they say round here.

    (and all over piddly dialup!)

    LOL, it’s funny how gullible some people can be. It was almost believable.. almost. The wording was great, but that long list of monthly archives told me something completely different. πŸ˜‰

    Can’t wait to find out the results!

  11. Joel Says:

    When actually would be the results announced?

  12. Edrei Says:

    Humouring humour is always the way to go. Unless humoured humour was lost in…humour.

    Now I’m confused again. πŸ™‚

  13. th13rteen Says:

    When are you guys posting the results? Its been like 5 days now. Sorry I can’t wait to see if I got in. πŸ˜€

  14. Lindsey Says:

    Guys they answered your question in the last post:

    Next week we will be doing a livestream going over some of the sites that were submitted (anonymously of course) and you should expect announcements in the upcoming weeks.

  15. Tyme White Says:

    Be patient, enjoy the summer! We will be having a Streamcast so you can see us go through some of the submissions tomorrow night (Wednesday) at 9pm EST.

  16. Chris Guillebeau Says:

    That was a pretty good joke! I have to admit I was a little puzzled at first… and then I thought, either I’m reading something wrong or that is one huge typo. πŸ™‚

    This feels like a nomination to the Emmy’s or the Oscar’s πŸ˜‰

    I cannot wait to see if I make the cut.
