Do you check your emails daily?Consider this a special request from me. I would like all of you to check your profile account and update it with your current email ID and one that you use regularly. When a contest is organized and I decide to put in some special element in it that requires a participant to contribute to it, I will need to communicate with you through that email ID. You see, I genuinely do like organizing contests and there is a certain gleeful, childish excitement at throwing in something unexpected. Now if you have provided an email ID that you are not checking, then the whole concept of the special element fizzles out and I am left disappointed. Due to conceptualizing a contest with some time schedule, I may not be able to select another participant in a timely manner.
Another thing is that sometimes I feel the necessity to explain how to submit content in an article effectively to fetch traffic or inform somebody about the need to check content in the forum or some other section for English errors. Whether I use the ISC messaging system or communicate with you through my official email, it is the email ID that you have given is where you will get the alert message from me. Now if you are not going to bother to check your email how will you get my messages? I am not expecting any thanks for any sort of guidance that I am giving, but it is exasperating when I continue to see the mistakes despite my message and I just have to conclude that you have not seen my message at all.
So I have two requests - one, update your email ID; two, make it a point to check it regularly, if not daily, then at least every two days, especially when there is an ongoing contest.
I would seriously like to know if you have provided an email ID that you do check frequently.
