Hi guys and gals.

As you might have noticed I recently entered a bunch of contests and I got quite pissed off by something that happened, so I decided to give you my opinion and thoughts about

deadline extensions.

Let me tell you what happened so that we're on the same page: 
At the end of September I entered a contest when it was about a week from the deadline, it was tight, but I still wanted to give it a shot. As expected, my drawing wasn't at the best of my possibilities, due to the lack of time, but I still was pretty happy I could make it with such short notice.

Eagerly awaiting the results I discovered that the deadline was extended about a week later; not a big deal, there must be someone else who, like me, joined few days from the end and couldn't make it in time; I would have asked it, too.
A week passes and it was postponed by another week, and again, and again; long story short, this contest hasn't finished yet.

I find it unfair to anyone who actually made it in time, myself included, and to make it worse, there are people who are still joining now. It would have been much better if the extension was for who declared entering before the initial deadline, excluding new participants.

In my opinion, extensions should be done in "extreme" cases (i.e. too few submissions, more than a half of the participants asks for it, etc.); these guys had more than a dozen entries so it should have been fine.

To be clear: my criticism is towards the hosts of said contest not to the unknowing participants.

Thank you for bearing with me and my rant Sweating a little...

Hello contestant! 
I don't know if you remember but you entered my contest and as a friendly reminder you have about 4 days left until the contest is over. The contest will officially end on Feb. 25,2016 5pm MST.

If you cannot complete it, please let me know so I could take off your name from the list.

However you are committed, so please before you decide to leave, give it some thought.
If you do leave, I will have second thoughts in letting you in other contest I may have in the future.

I hope to hear from you again!

Please don't take this personally, I'm sending the same message to all the contestants who have yet to enter. 

Thank you again!
