Akesha is OUT from the Contest!


"ANNOUNCEMENT: By popular demand, we are suspending the Pinoy Smile Monthly Contest until further notice. Please help us improve the contest. -pinoysmile.net "

"I lose respect already. I have no desire to help you guys neither to improve your contest nor your website. This may not be your fault, but the rules that keep changing all the time is unprofessional. And also, you need to improve your costumer service. Good luck and thanks anyways!"

That's the comment I left from pinoysmile.net when I found out that they suspended the "Smile Contest". I was irritated when I found out about it. What a waste of time!

Not only I wasted my time and effort campaigning for Akesha, but also I failed you guys. The full support that you showed to us means a lot.

If you are planning to enter you kid to join the Smile Contest, just please please don't ask my favor to go over there. I already made up my mind to not visit their website. You can ask me any favor you want, but please don't make me go over there.

To all my blogger friends and some people from the blogging community, in behalf of my family I would like to thank you all for helping us vote for Akesha. I am sorry to tell you guys, the contest has ended like this.

For those of you who have posted a campaign for Akesha, I am asking a favor to please remove the campaign. I am very lucky to have your support guys. I know that you knew who you are. Your help means a lot. Now I know who my real friends are.

If you have a link or you have followed them, I don't think if it's worth to support them. Don't waste your time.

I am not a bad person, but once you get into my nerves that's the time you get to know the other side of me.

Sorry to be mean and a pessimist. Just expressing my thoughts. God Bless those cheaters!

I understand what you feel right now, Well, kahit wla na si Akesha sa contest na yan, para sa akin, winner pa rin sya.

karen said...

Oh, this is really sad news, but I agree with Fe that Akesha is a winner to all of us.

nice A said...

sad to hear about this, dhemz. but maybe the organizer has realized that you have a lot of supporters and their credibility was at stake. i understand how much effort you put forth into Akesha's participation but then if the game was dirty as that then the organizer might be right in calling it quits. It's not only the organizer to blame but also the cheaters out there. But had a concrete and feasible rule been set out prior to the contest, this mess would have not happened.
Anyways, it's for the organizer, you and all of us to learn from. Whatever we set, let's look at the possible issues that may arise.
I'm one of those being happy to have supported pretty Akesha in our own simple way even if the contest has been called off. And yes, Akesha remains the WINNER to us all- by HONEST and CREDIBLE votes!

Janmah said...

weeee! keep smiling iha! but i understand what you feel! just don't let these things break your mood..heheh!

anyway..I WILL NOT VISIT THEM EITHER..hehhe not anymore!

A.Marie said...

Your little girl is definitely a winner to all of us!

I think that calling off the contest was a good idea, but I would feel the same way that you do if I was in your place!

Tell Akesha to keep on smiling! :)

Bambie dear ★ said...

sana may online contest pa na well organized at may prize naman aside from featuring in their website.. sayang pero mas ok na siguro to dahil marami yata nagccomplain sa system.. next time ulit, sa iba naman..

David Funk said...

Dhemz, I agree with nearly every word you said here.

I agree with A.Marie in that Akesha is a winner to us all.

That said, it's very frustrating when one is sacrificing time for a contest that is fishy from the start. Yet, this post more than confirms it.

Dhemz, I don't see you as a failure in this contest. They failed. They failed to use professionalism, respect, and communication in a timely manner in order to keep the contest running smoothly. I agree contests are difficult, but changing the rules on the fly with no communication whatsoever won't go over well with anyone. That's the only part I disagree with you on. You did your part.

Unfortunately, I've seen contests bring out the worst in some as well as ruin friendships. I can relate to that.

There's no way anyone that has followed you would ever think you're a bad person. I know this upset you, but that's what is good about blogging is that you can express that here.

Anyway, I back you up all the way on this my very dear friend!

Hello sis pasensya ka na nahuli ako sa pila.. I deeply regret that i dragged you into this mess, I was the reason why you entered Akesha into the contest. I thought that the same system of voting will be used by them. But even then, some tried to cheat too yun nga lang they were caught.

But anyhow, as everyone is saying, Akesha is still the winner for all of us. I understand your frustration and I like what you wrote "God bless the cheaters". Because of them, the contest which intention is for fun was resulted to a bad end.

So sorry sis... David is right, you are not a bad person. Its just the circumstances that's making you upset. Mwah!

jodi said...

they have only one purpose, maybe they just wanted their blog to bcome popular but sad to say they used some of us here to popularized their site. akesha is a winner.

smart blogger online forum valuews, reviews, business

I just wondering yesterday when i'm about to vote your little girl but i couldn't get through due to some errors...

DOnt worry your little girl is the winner from all of us..

Cacai M. said...

Ay naku, gi-out na diay nmo si Akesh sis.. sus oi kapoy pod lagi ni'ng daghan cheaters oi. Anyway, am just be at your side sis.. ka-cute ra ba jud sa smile ni Akesha.. deserving nmn sana.. hemmm.. yeah God bless to those nlng!

Mel Avila Alarilla said...

Ay naku Dhemz, parang nakikita kita na umuusok pa ang ilong sa galit, lol. Anyway sabi nga namin susuportahan ka namin all the way. I respect your decision and your thoughts about the contest. Pwede lang magbigay nang unsolicited advice my friend. In life we don't get everything we want. God may be teaching you a lesson in patience and tolerance. Hindi lang naman ikaw ang nabiktima nung contest, lahat kayo pero pinersonal mo yung pangyayari. Tapos na yung contest, as far as all of us are concerned. Ang akin lang ay me makuha tayong lessons sa pangyayaring ito. It is better to be wronged and maintain your humility and tolerance, for God will equalize whatever wrong that may have been done to you. Sabi nga sa Bible, "vengeance is Mine." Alam ko naman na ang primary reason mo sa pagwithdraw kay Akesha ay protektahan ang mga kaibigan mo na matiyagang bumoboto sa kanya. And you should be lauded for that. Anyway, mahal ka naming lahat at kami ay nagmamalasakit nang husto sa iyo. At my age, I have regretted so many rash decisions I made when I was younger and impetuous. God brought me down to the lowest point in my life until I saw myself as what God wanted me to see. I want you to rise above your personal limitations my friend and become the person God wants you to be, purposeful and full of grace and wisdom. Pasensya na sa sermon ko kapatid. I mean no harm in all my statements. I will pray that God will guide you in all aspects of your life. Thanks for the honest post. God bless you always.

bingkee said...

I really understand what you feel. Siguro maski ako, basig pati akong kalag magyawyaw. You're not a pessimist. You're just venting out. It may mean that God wants you not be there.
Cheer up now....at least you know you've got lots of friends and supporters. God bless u.

SweetMom(PinayMom.ORG) said...

siguro naramdaman nilang mananalo si Akesha, doon niola pinalitan ang Rules... dapat sa mga contest na it, i-blog ang kanilang hindi magandang ginagawa para hindi na sila paniniwalaan...

talo ang mga organizers...hahaha!

Hi! I'm Grace said...

Sorry to hear about it, Dhemz. Kasayang sab... sure na unta daug si Akesha. :(
I hate something like that, and I can be mean, too.

Juliet said...

hi dhemz, didto bitaw ko sa ilang site ganiha kay mag vote unta kay akesha pero natingala nako kay suspended naman diay ang botohan. walay ayo sila :-)

melandria said...

So sad but your right there are times that we need to speak and stand in our decision. I have many things to tell you pa naman but i was not able to do so but when time permits i will just chat with you in YM. As you wish, i will remove the link immediately. Thanks and Take care.

tripzibit said...

I'm really sorry to hear about it. I guess they just want to attract more visitors to their site. I'm always support you my friend :)

eden said...

i am with you dhemz.lain bitaw kaayo sila kay dili sila consistent sa ilang rules. kada contest lain lain man ug rules.
And I agree with what others said, Akesha is still our winner..!!!1

Nisha said...

Oh, sis(don't mind if i call you this).. :).. am so sorry to hear the contest ended this way. I even posted your link on my facebook for my friends and family to vote.. but all's well that ends well and your angel is surely a winner in our eyes! :-)

Good thing that you vented out something you think wasn't fair, and at no cost should we give in to unfair treatment. We as bloggers have the right to voice our emotions so don't feel bad about anything dear.. Blessings to your daughter and a happy week ahead :-)

kathy said...

Hi dhemz! Sensya na kron pa nko nbasa imong comment, na-busy ko this weekend man gud. Cge lng kay i-remove na nko sa akong site and pic ni akesha. Ayaw kalain day kay kung ako pud naa sa imong sitwasyon, labaw pa ana akong buhaton, basin baya'g ma-balikas nako sila...

Basta ato na ganing anak ang mabutang sa alanganin, mo-lutaw jud atong pagka-inahan, so your reaction is very much understood since you only want to protect your daughter.

Ayaw kabalaka, ug naa pay contest nga imong apilan, I will always support you...

It gets into my nerves too and I am not even part of the contest, unsa pa ba kha ug akong anak ang naka-apil! Agoy! Ipabarang ko gyud.. hahahahaha....

analou said...

Hello Dhemz. I really didnt know what had happened but if there is cheating it's better to get out as soon as possible. Cge lang magaba-an ra nang mga dishonest nga mga tao. Heads up my friend.

Meryl (proud pinay) said...

Hi sis, sorry now lang ako naka visit...di ko ng nakuha pang mag bloghop nitong weekend...medyo bc kami...

by the way, yep nakita ko b4 ako mag visit dito na pina tanggal mo na si akesha sa contest...mag comment sana me doon today pero nakalagay 'withdrawn from the contest'
i think tama na din ang decision mo sis...pababago bago ang rules nila.

nuts said...

nadismaya din ako sa kanila rules.. pabago bago nga..

But anyway, walang tatalo sa sweetest smile ni akesha.. you're a winner to us..

Mrs. Stevenson said...
