Let's help Ben Swann get a super bowl commercial .

You can VOTE once a day it's only two clicks to vote and requires no info from you.

"Ben Swann spent 14 years working as a journalist in broadcast news, (most recently as an anchor in Cincinnati) has won two Emmy Awards and two Edward R. Murrow awards, and has come to believe for a while now that the mainstream media is not interested in telling the truth. Ben is taking a stand and going independent and online.“

Benn deserves something like this.

Judges Cracking Down on Rules

I've heard there have been some issues, so I'm posting this just in case for Ben's entry. Can anyone please confirm?

1. Deadline for entry is 9/22/2013;

2. 9/22/2013 is also end of Round One. Top 50,250 entrants move on to Round Two. If total entrants is less than 50,250 then ALL entrants move on to Round Two. Top 50,000 entrants by most votes, who meet ALL guidelines, will move on to Round Two. 250 entrants without high popular votes can move on to Round Two by special judging criteria of judges. [20 Semi-Finalists comes in October, 4 Finalists in November, each Round having it's own requirements and judging criteria and votes reset to zero]

3. Sponsor of Super Bowl Contest/Promotion is Intuit Inc. developer of software and services for small businesses. Sponsor is promoting their QuickBooks line of products and services, thus the requirement for entry to be submitted by business "owner" or "employee" (by IRS definition?) at time of entry with express permission of owner at time of entry. Entrant must be good representative of sponsor for advertising and public relations purposes.

4. Round One Public Voting is limited to one vote per person per day. Multiple votes will be voided and possibly lead to disqualification of entrant based on judges sole discretion.

5. Complaints and Issues for Ben and Zak:

-Claim/Record of over-voting per day (sometimes dozens per day by one or more people - the supporters are not helping by doing this and posting about it)

-Claim of entry by friend, not employee with advanced express permission of owner, at time of entry. Definition of Employee: what, when, how work is done is controlled by employer with payroll taxes withheld from pay (state/federal/social security-medicare/unemployment tax)

-Claim of not being a Small Business. A Small Business is generally an activity carried on to make a profit by an unincorporated entity, or a LLC with unincorporated tax status. (Sponsor guidelines: no more than fifty (50) full-time permanent employees as of the start of the Promotion.)

Solutions?:

-Tell people to limit voting to once per day (and not from same ip/device as another person?)

-If submission didn't meet employee status at time of registration (and for rest of contest?) Ben can delete and re-register as owner before 9/22/2013, if he meets small business definition. (If there is less than 50,250 entrants this won't be an issue, plus still 5 days for supporters to vote him back up.)

If Ben and Zak meet all the criteria, then he's good to win! Get ready for Rounds 2 & 3! Yeah!!!

[Everything will be verified including appropriate behavior and actions of owner, entrant, employees, and supporters....so be nice to others and don't swear, demean, etc.]

Voted, 4th day

keep on voting

Don't forget to keep voting once a day and help remind others. Benn has moved from 25th to 14th(as of now) since I've been watching. Right now Norml is number one. Wouldn't it be great to see them at 1 and 2.

"Hey everyone, about a week or so ago a friend of mine entered me into a contest to receive an ad during the Super Bowl. I just got a message from him last night that we are in 26th place and need to be in the top 20 to advance. Check it out and if you want to give some support, that would be very cool." Ben's Facebook post 12 hrs. ago.

Maybe you could change the post title to say help Ben by voting. The first thing I thought was that he wanted money.

Thanks to you

TemeculaPatriot and everyone else who has voted! Ben has moved into 18th place - and if he stays in the top 20 between now and the 22nd, he advances to the next round!

Employee Rule?

Does he qualify? :( Would be cool!

Entrance had to be by owner of lawful small business or by paid employee at time of entry with express permission to do so from its owner?
