“BAEby, you’re my SUPERSTAR. I’m your biggest fan.” That’s what you all are thinking! I know because the number of entries for the competition completely exceeded my expectations. So many #1 fans out there! We had people representing the Philippines, Malaysia, the USA, Canada, The Netherlands, France, the UK, even Laos, Brunei, Brazil, New Zealand and more. This is very very very awesome!
You have another shot at winning a free album today, but before moving on, check your answer for yesterday’s question:
Question: Youngbae wrote the lyrics to one of Big Bang’s songs. Which one was it?
Answer: Goodbye Baby
I’ve gotten a lot of questions about the giveaway so I thought it would be helpful to make a FAQ to answer them. Please read and refer to this post and the rules before freaking out/asking a question. If it doesn’t answer your concerns then, feel free to email/post. (firstname.lastname@example.org)
1. How do I know if ATY has received my entry?
In general, if you get a confirmation message, it means that Google has processed your answers and I will see it. The confirmation is NOT AN EMAIL. If you are extremely concerned, shoot me an email and I will check for you. What you SHOULD NOT DO is submit again and again. We will only take your first response. If it gets out of hand and annoying, we’ll just disqualify you for this round. Consider this a warning. If there’s any special circumstances, please contact us. We really want you to be part of this, but please make it easy for us too.
For reference the confirmation message should look like this:
Thank you for participating in ATY’s Album Giveaway.
Come back tomorrow for another chance to win Taeyang’s ‘SOLAR’ album.
2. What if I get the wrong answer?
Don’t sweat it. Consider each question you answer correctly as a ticket for a raffle/drawing. We are providing a total of 6 opportunities to get a ticket so the maximum tickets you can put into the drawing is 6. If you don’t get this ticket try again tomorrow! It just means you have less tickets in the drawing as someone who answered all 6 questions correctly.
3. How much time do I have to answer the question?
24 hours from the time the question was first posted. I want to reiterate that this is not a race. The first 10 submissions have the same chances of winning as the last. You have plenty of time to do some research to ensure that your answer is correct. Incorrect answers will be taken out so answer carefully.
4. Do I have to put down my address yet?
Absolutely not. The location question is optional. You can leave it blank if you want. The reason it’s there is because I was simply curious of where Taeyang fans came from. We will need to know your REAL name and address if you are selected as a winner.
5. How many albums is ATY giving out?
Only one. Each day you get the chance to enter one ticket into the drawing. Only July 1st we will compile all the correct entries into one big giant list and select one winner from it. From the looks of it, the prize will be the normal edition of “SOLAR.” We know you all want a deluxe edition, but ATY doesn’t think we can get copy for ourselves either.
6. How fair is this competition?
This question is an important one and many have approached me about it. To be completely honest, it’s as fair as you all make it be. Readers have brought up the possibility that people will use multiple email accounts to increase their chances of winning the album since we have no real way of checking or controlling this. In fact, this is a brilliant idea. Some of you may already have thought about it and done it, but some of you haven’t. We decided to throw it out there to level the playing field for everyone. ATY admins have discussed it and we concluded that we will trust that ATY readers are good people and will play nicely and fairly. Our goal with the giveaway was to thank our readers for all the support you’ve shown us, celebrate Taeyang’s comeback, and give a dedicated fan a real hard copy of Taeyang’s album because for some, it’s hard to get. I hope that it doesn’t get tinged with any ill feelings. This is just for fun and we’re not professionals. We try but there’s bound to mistakes and problems. So we will apologize now for any problems that have and will occur.
With that said, if we suspect any cheating, though it’s hard and you all have been fantastic, we will do something about it. FYI, I have lots of power. *evil cackle*
