At the end of this story the simple lesson is......

Make sure when you create a contest, its easy to understand, and..... above all else make certain that not only your contestants understand how it works, but that you understand how it works. XD

What about contests already in progress? Such as the Sasameki Koto one?

Oh my. Seconded. Seriously, people need to grow up and get a life. Missing one concert is not something to complain over. I mean, there will be more. Besides, most of us didn't win anyway. Just accept it and move on. It's not the end of the world.

I believe they mean they wont be performing anymore contests of that format so all current contests are most likely unaffected by this. Read some of the previous posts people the 1st post here is misleading users were not to blame for this 'problem'

Have you guys even read the whole thread or previous threads about this? It wasn't about who won because it's been proven who won. It's about how CR is handling this topic and scapegoating on their participants.

I'm getting quite annoyed at these posts. xP Gah, just ignore it. Sooner or later they'll realize how dumb they were being for only reading the first page. Yay for reading!

I'm hoping that someone smart at crunchyroll headquarters retracts or at the very least rewords this post as it is very misleading through either clever wording or just bad wording. A site like this shouldn't lash out at users unfairly unless they are looking to lose support -.-'.

I can't blame them...you'd have to thumb through pages of this stuff to fully understand what's happened. More or less, I want to make sure every knows what has happened here.

Well okay I admit I didn't read the previous news post's replies. I mean, not until after I replied here. Sorry for not getting the whole story.

I have a comment to make though, about Twitter...

Some people have their profiles set to private - could that have possibly been the cause of confusion? I'm just putting it out there, because I'm personally curious. Anyway, it's not too much of a problem it I don't get an answer, so...

Well, I do hope we have more contests in the future, but maybe with less competitive rules... And rules that don't interfere with school and/or work. I mean, it seems like many people (regardless of winners or losers) skipped out on important things in life, just for some free concert tickets. I mean, contests that induce actions like that just don't sit right with me...

Do it through the power of imagination, no, quoting xP But in a non-annoying way

Pika - Yeah it happens. If I wasn't an insomniac I would've not known the entire story xP I think CR isn't really blaming the Utada one but their previous contests too.

I hope so too - it's very unprofessional to say the least.

To be fair noone is all that worked up about the contest results anymore, as the site has tried to fix that issue. Its just this post is directing fire at users when the source of the problem lies with crunchyroll and twitter i.e. scapegoating, which isn't cool. You can argue they don't name names but it took me less than a minute to find the names of who they are blaming.

In respect to the problem, its mentioned in the post of the user 'nexusmaylo' with the dugtrio avatar picture(page 3, second post) as a quote, it has to do with iphone apps and different forms of retwittering or something.... basically the contest was too confusing for its own good...

Thanks for checking back Pika, it's hard to figure out what's going on with all these posts. Basically the problem was "retweetering" technology.
