    Problem with 8086 Sweepstakes entry

    Bill_Stuntz

      I just tried to register for the Sweepstakes, but I had a problem.  There's absolutely NO feedback.  I have no idea whether my entry was accepted.  The rules say that multiple entries void ALL registrations.

      I assumed I'd get some sort of feedback, and clicked "Submit" more than once thinking my click was ignored.  WAS my registration accepted?  Or did my multiple clicks count as multiple entries and I'm not entered at all?

          There was also more than on person in our house, that signed up for it. If coming from the same IP, will it all be disqualified?

            Darned if I know.  I couldn't find any way to contact anyone about the sweepstakes, so it seemed reasonable to comment/question here here.

              And by the way... You will probably, most likely, definitely not be disqualified for "clicking Submit more than once." @Bill_Stuntz

                "Limit of one (1) Sweepstakes Entry per person. More than one (1) Sweepstakes Entry from any person will void all Sweepstakes Entries for that person."

                ...

                "Sponsor and its agencies are not responsible for late, incomplete or misdirected Sweepstakes Entries; lost, interrupted, or unavailable network, server, or other connections; or miscommunications, computer or software malfunctions, telephone transmission problems, technical failures, garbled transmissions, damage to a user’s computer equipment (software or hardware), or other errors or malfunctions of any kind, whether human, mechanical, electronic or otherwise. Consequently, Sponsor and its agencies are not liable in the event your Sweepstakes Entry is not captured due to the aforementioned reasons."

                ...

                "Proof of submission will not be deemed to be proof of receipt by Sponsor."

                 

                The above quotes are the basis of my concern.  "Proof of submission" does not exist because there was no feedback that my entry was accepted.  No "Thank you for entering" email or "You've already registered" message when I clicked "Submit" multiple times without any feedback.  I would have appreciated confirmation that I'm registered.  I'm HOPING that multiple submissions from the same email address won't void my entry.   The only way I'll know for certain that my entry was registered will be if I'm lucky enough to win. Or (I suppose) when I start receiving a bunch of "Buy an i7-8086k now" emails.
