A Change In the Upcoming Robocity Contest...

Journal Entry: Wed Apr 26, 2017, 7:47 AM


Hi Robocity fans (and watchers),

I recently had a talk with my fiscal/job consultant after I found out that Italian law doesn't have different categories for contests, so even small ones like my Robocity contest should be registered and I'd have to pay a lawyer (!!).

Turns out that I can't run contests at all, and I only have one alternative:

I can have an event for all fans to join and all participants get a gift as a thank you for taking part in the event.

That's really all I can do. :( Sorry that I can't host a real contest, guys...

Anyway, I'm making plans, so keep an eye out for a journal entry announcing the event in early May.

*big hugs*

P.S. Yes, I'm mad at legislators who won't update the law to reflect current times, but what can I do? Unless there was a group or movement that was petitioning them, I'm only one person and there's nothing I can do alone. Sucks big time, though... *sighs*

I'm glad I can at least run an event with gifts ^^; I'd be furious if I couldn't do that either

Would you still join the event?

I'd still join an event if it didn't have a prize. :)  But I've big projects from school lately so I haven't had a ton of time. :(

Don't worry :hug: and thank you for being open to join even if there's no winner/prize (but there IS a special gift).

It is... and I'm mad about the outdated law making it impossible for me and other small bloggers/site owners, but what can I do?

Thanks, dear :hug:

Yeah... Hope they do at some point (and I hope to find other bloggers who want to petition)

Would you still join the event?
