A Public Apology

Dear Magilyn and PlaidElf,

I would like to apologize for being a complete and utter dork. I went to the Blizzard store to purchase your pets, the Guardian Cub, and found that it is no longer available. They retired that pet last month on June 18th (according to a Wowhead comment).

Talk about being an inept contest host!

I have emailed you both explaining this and asking you to visit the Blizzard store to choose any other pet they offer. Please let me know which one you would like.

I am posting this here in the off chance it catches your eye before you check your emails.

Again, I am very sorry for my blunder.

1.) Blizzard Store Pet - Guardian Cub (US servers only - sorry)
2.) Key Code for the Closed Beta of the game EverQuest Landmark

I'd also like to mention, if you hadn't noticed, that I took part in the contest as well. In each of the photos I've posted for each month, showing what the Blizzard Store Pet would be, I've donned my best interpretations of the colors. I also tried to get the screenshots taken in a location that best suited the pet I was giving away. Hopefully you've enjoyed the photos as well as the contest.

Thank you everyone!

ROYGBiV Tmog Contest - June's Deadline

Hello all!

Today is the deadline for June's leg of the contest. You still have roughly 13 hours to get your submissions in if you have not sent them yet.

I currently have no comments on the outfits submitted yet. I have intentionally not checked my email this month to see if I have better luck making sure that every entry makes it into the contest. In the past I have failed twice at this "trying" to be organized.

You see, when I first started the contest, I was a good girl and I created folders in my email for each month. I named the folders with the month and the color figuring that would be the easiest way to keep track of the emails I would receive. I would place the emails, as I received them, in their corresponding folder.

That plan worked for the most part. One month I completely missed an entry even though it was in the correct folder. Another month I put an entry in the wrong folder. This month I decided I would do things different and not touch my email at all. Less chances of me screwing it up this time.

Tomorrow morning I will be opening my emails for the first time this month and should not miss one of them....hopefully.

Also, I've learned that my bank does not like me making purchases on the EU Blizz store. Last month one of the winners I chose lives overseas. Not knowing this, I bought the pet from the US store and sent it off. She was kind enough to let me know that I bought it at the wrong store and sent the code back to me. When I tried to purchase the pet from the EU store I could not complete the purchase. I tried a couple of times with no success.

A few days later I received a phone call from my bank. They locked my credit card because of what appeared to be "fraudulent charges". Thankfully I hadn't tried to use my card during that time. That would have been embarrassing being at the register and having my credit card not work. Eeeeek.

So, for this month I've decided to do things a little different. I am still offering up Lil' K.T. for those of you on US servers. For those of you who are not, if you win, I will allow you to browse my collection of pets and choose any level 25 pet, that can be caged and traded, as your prize. I will create a list of the level 25 pets I have, that can be caged and traded, and post it here along with the winners on the last day of the month. You can also browse through my pets on the WoW Armory. I will post the link in the winner's post as well. Or, you can choose to receive a key for the Closed Beta version of the game EverQuest Landmark. I still have two keys left.

(If you're keeping track of the keys I have, yes I "should" have three left. I broke down and used one and made an Damn alt-o-holicism. hahaha)

Good luck to all the entrants! I can't wait to see your submissions tomorrow.
