Support Hours and WordPress Logo Fun

As Matt mentioned in the September Wrap-Up, the Automattic crew is heading to Québec City to work on some top-secret projects. It worked well when we closed the email support system for our London Support meetup, so we’ve decided to do it again.

Support will be unavailable from 10 a.m. EST on Friday, October 9 to 4 a.m. EST on Monday, October 19.

Of course, our team will still be monitoring servers and services while we’re out to keep you blogging smoothly and safely. In the meantime, we encourage you to read through the Support docs and make use of the WordPress.com forums (which are full of friendly users like you) if you need a little help.

wp-wheelWhile we’re away, we’ll be running a contest to see who can use the WordPress logo in the most creative way. Take advantage of your camera, graphics applications, crayons, and anything else you have at your disposal. Create a post on your WordPress.com blog, upload your image or images, and leave a comment here with the URL of your post. Please make sure to leave the URL to your post in the comment text or the entry will not be accepted.

wp-milkWe’ll get you started by providing some official WordPress logos, but the rest is up to you. I’m sure you can do better than the photos I’ve included here. We’ll keep an eye on submissions and post some of them to the @wordpressdotcom Twitter account during the week.

The deadline for submissions will be 4 p.m. EST on Monday, October 19.

We’ll create categories based on the best submissions and run polls to let you select the winners. Prizes will include WordPress.com upgrades, swag, and maybe other surprises. Good luck!

    I think my entry is a rather humble one compared to what others will come up with, nevertheless, you may find my entries at:

    http://123hallelujah.wordpress.com/2009/10/18/you-are-the-light-of-the-world/

    and

    http://123hallelujah.wordpress.com/2009/10/19/to-overcome-them/

    I am still working on this second one, but when it gets scheduled, that is what the address should be. Not being very saavy technically, I’ve experienced problems in formatting the bottom photos in the post for the 18th with their notations. It looked fine on my screen, but on a friend’s screen it is messy.

    I had fun working with this and think you’re going to be having fun looking at all the entries.

    Hi. Great idea for a contest — here is my submission:

    http://aytonart.wordpress.com/2009/10/18/the-horde-redux/

    I had just uploaded a drawing/collage from 1993, “The Horde”, which contains a circular object (Earth, Moon, planet, it’s not clear) behind a pile of figures (the horde in question). I replaced the globe with the WordPress logo & voila! (or viola, as the French say)…you can check out both versions from my blog home page…
