Thank you very much for your feedback.
We would like to assure everyone that the website and contest were launched with the sincere goal of reaching the Filipino global community to share whatever good we could disseminate to all kababayans.
It was with a sincere hope that from this contest something good would come out of it, but the avalanche of feedback took us by surprise. We did not anticipate that problems with the voting system would arise, and that some people would manage to cast fraudulent votes despite the precautionary measures we have incorporated in the voting system.
We do apologize for the inconvenience. We have come up with a solution through your valued support and helpful suggestions.
Indeed, the Filipino spirit of "bayanihan" is very much alive.Your comments are proof of this spirit that we all come together to make our community a better one if not the best.
Our faith in the Filipino community has been strengthened with the show of support where even in the midst of controversy, comments and suggestions were aired with courtesy. Maraming salamat po.
Please read the revised rules here.
