After reading long paragraphs from others, why did you just posted for Charlotte? I think this comment could be aimed for anyone (sometimes we all need to get a job!?!?!) why did you just name Charlotte? S
It's ok Rosa I had to rebuff Maureen's affections a few times and she is having trouble getting over it. In Maureen's case one always has to take into consideration her limited abilities.

Hi Mindi. This is from my earlier post on page 3.

"Where exactly was the screw up? Richie’s website stated that the first person with the right answer would be the winner. He set that as the standard for determining the winner, and that failed to play out for three days. Did he not convey that to Press Here? Did he tell one person at PH and then it was someone else at the company who was tweeting the name of the winner? Where the breakdown in communication happened remains unclear."

So, since Richie's website stated that the first person with the right answer would be the winner, Press Here was in error because they were just randomly choosing a winner. Who is at fault for that? Depends on what the answers are to those questions.

As far as them being fired, I did not hear that specifically but I assume it to be true since he himself (or someone tweeting from his account on his behalf) named the winners the last two days. Of course the problem there is that Richie only got it right once. He can't blame Press Here for the last day. He got that wrong all on his own.

Even if you feel that way, do you really need to say it and send everyone else the negative vibes? I'm not attacking you or anything, but is it hard to ignore instead?

Well I guess the people who actually had the answer first can have themselves a little snicker. It seems the 'winners' are still empty-handed two months later.

Yet another screw up with this situation. How long can it take to mail a CD and lithograph? That stuff should have been autographed and packaged, just waiting for a mailing label to be slapped on. Oy.
Thank you

Latest installment of 'Richie Needs to Stop Doing Twitter Trivia':

He tweeted yesterday that after American Idol aired he would tweet out a trivia question about their appearance on the show. He specified that a winner would be picked at random so at least he has somewhat learned a lesson.

His tweet, sent out at 10:29 pm EST was "Sending a signed CD to the lucky follower who can tell me what color my guitar was during tonight’s episode of @AmericanIdol #BecauseWeCan".

The problem? The show hadn't aired on the West Coast yet! Not a huge number of people in the feed pointed that out, but then the people on the West Coast probably weren't watching his twitter account for a question at that time since the show hadn't aired yet for them.

I can understand if you're not gonna wait 24 hours or so to allow everyone around the world to see the footage, but at least wait until everyone in THIS country has had a chance to see it!*shaking my head* Oy.

Have you seen the latest? He was talking about how he didn't have much in his butt but up front is more important. Now he asked for people to stop because he is getting tagged in butt conversation. Firstly, people are stupid but so is Richie. What did he expect?

He expected people to have commen sense and not take a joke too far or too seriously.
As for the contests, if I were Richie I wouldn't do them anymore. The constant complaining and ungratefulness wouldn't be worth it to me. People need to stop acting like bratty, entitled 7-year-olds and grow up.

The 4 women doing the butt talking had been doing it for days and hours at a time. The whole time they were doing it they were tagging Richie so he saw all of them. When he said something the first time I think he wanted to do it jokingly as not to hurt any feelings.But as usual there was a lack of class and "common sense" where the women were concerned. After the second tweet it got very nasty with all the butt tweeters turning on each other lol.

The only thing I can say about the contests and any other of Richie's tweets is if they are bothering some of you that much stop following him. Then you will not be exposed to any of Richie's tweets. And after some intense therapy on Richie's part I'm sure he will get over the loss of the few of you and move on with his life.

And yes the for the ones that do not understand sarcasuim the last sentence is a joke.

The "complaining and ungratefulness" are based on his own errors and as I said earlier, there isn't exactly a degree of difficulty in what he's doing. He's a grown up, he should be perfectly capable of carrying out this type of thing in an error-free manner.

If you say that the first person who gives the right answer will be the winner, then you need to acknowledge that person as the winner. That person is in fact entitled to whatever the prize is.

If you are not the winner, but just another fan observing how this all plays out, there is nothing wrong with recognizing the errors and wondering aloud how this can keep happening.

The ball is in Richie's court. All he has to do is step up and handle a very simple situation correctly. At this point, I would think he'd be embarrassed enough by his past trivia mistakes to make sure he carries it out correctly going forward. I guess we'll just have to wait and see.

I have a solution to your "problem", lisa: Tell Richie himself! Complain to him directly. He has Twitter. Tweet him your complaints. Tell him how wrong he has handled the contests and how YOU would be sooo much better at it. Bitching on Topix is both silly and pointless, because he isn't going to read them. And you're the only one who has complained so much.
People like you are often too cowardly to do things directly.
I dare you.

(Nothing makes me more angry than cowards, know-it-alls, arrogance, entitlement and Bullies. And this thread is full of it.)

Complain to him directly, huh? That's a great suggestion...except for the fact that it's already been done.

Plenty of people voiced their complaints while that week of trivia was going on, and it did go directly to Richie because @TheRealSambora was included in the tweets. For him to feign ignorance at this point would just be silly. When he took the step of announcing the names of the winners himself the last two days, that action was, by default, an admission that he knew things had gone wrong.

But that is three months old now and what's done is done. I just can't believe that after all that went wrong with that week of trivia, he would have followed it up with such a silly mistake last week with American Idol. I mean c'mon dream, you have to admit it's a pretty big oversight on his part. The man lives in California and he didn't take the west coast time zone into account before asking the question and announcing a winner.

Really?
