    I did too. I was there early waiting for the update and didn't submit the final thing until about 10 minutes ago or less.

    yeah I've got 3x 503 errors. I submited within 3 or 4 minutes from when the last question was posted since I knew most of this stuff in my head already. I'm sure I would have been one of the first people in had it actually worked...but now I gotta leave for a dentist appointment...freaking last 90 minutes of my life wasted.

    Well I think they said the "first to submit" thing for extra merchandise got cancelled due to the server going down. Just remember you'll have plenty of time when you get back!

    I definitely liked the limerick contest here more than the contest we just completed on Core. However, I do like the idea of their live stream randomly giving away beta keys rather than on a set time.

    Seems a bit off to have thousands of people only show up on the hour simply for the key ignoring the stream and creating chaos for those actually watching the stream and attempting to ask questions and get informative answers.

    A core group of us would be watching the stream and asking questions and starting 10 min or so prior to the hour, thousands would start showing up spamming the chat channel with 'when is the key giveaway', 'have they given the key away', 'what is the #word'.

    This would go on for 10+ minutes and then there would be spamming again after a name was called in what appeared to be an attempt to have the winner's response get lost in the spam shuffle hoping for another roll of the dice. Which of course was not possible given the structuring of the winner's message being filtered out of the spam mess for Zap but the 20 minute zoo each hour got old quick.

    None of these 'on the hour' contestants did anything wrong given how the contest was structured, I just would prefer a contest where the key giveaway is random rewarding those actually active during the stream.
