See the previous discussion. Apparently it's "to give them access to the Wave library & challenge questions that they wouldn't get otherwise".

We could see in the live-streams the drawings of the first and the third winner.

Who is the second winner???   :-//

Have I missed something? Is it possible to see the daily drawing? Or will the daily winner somewhere published?

Where???     :-//

BTW: The confirmation mails working fine now. At least mine.  :-+

Hi ProBang2,

There should have been the Friday winner embedded on the Wave webpage and on the Keysight Labs YouTube channel. The video will be posted at 10 AM MST to the YT channel, and embedded into the webpages after that.

Trap for young players to get your daily entry:

Go to:
https://www.wavekeysight.com/landing/

Not:
https://www.wavekeysight.com/sap-landing/

For some reason I was alway getting redirected to the second URL, and never saw the daily entry button again after the first visit.
This was true on several PC's and nothing seemed to fix it.

After finding that link in this thread I tried it and got the button again. Clicked that and got the email confirmation - which I had not had since March 1.

Over and under.

The different countdown timers displayed on each of those sites are indicative of different locations and accordingly time zones, the relevant page states that tomorrows start time for AUS is 14:00 and in NZ it will be 16:00.

Yes, no doubt the pages are for different regions. The confusing thing that suckered me is at one point or another I have seen both pages and have clicked the daily entry button.
So I thought I was supposed to click the button enter each day, but I haven't seen the page with the button to click for some time so figured I was doing it wrong.

In summary, there is no daily button to click on the sap-landing page. There _is_ a daily button on the landing page. I assume this is how it is supposed to be because NZ is not in the list of countries for the 'main' competition posted earlier (yeah I know, read the fine print etc):
"This promotion is limited to specific countries and is only open to entrants aged 18 years or older at the time of submission who are legal residents of, and physically located within, Austria, Canada (excluding the Province of Quebec), Chile, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Ireland, Japan, Korea Republic of, Poland, South Africa, Switzerland, Taiwan, United Kingdom, United States (excluding Florida, New York, and Rhode Island), and Venezuela."

As someone who has had their fair share of name twisting in primary school, I'm sure Daniel has experienced this as well.  Not cool.

The phrase member bsubbrink referred to was mentioned at 4:30 in the current Keysight video, it was nothing more than a bit of lighthearted fun by those shown in the video,

Oh ... my apologies.

Uncommon names are cool to learn more about. The site below indicates that in 2010 only 376 people in the US had the surname Bogdanoff, with a high concentration in California.

I've also seen it spelled Bogdanov.

I've just found out that you need to have cookies enabled and must not auto-delete them when closing the web browser. Unfortunately that isn't explained anywhere. If you're a person concerned about privacy and have set your browser to auto-delete cookies when closing the browser you'll see the registration form again next day. So I re-registered again and again, and I assume Daniel considers this an attempted fraud and removes my entries. Only if the cookie is saved you'll see the webpage for re-entering for the next draw. Keysight, if you require cookies to be saved please tell so. Otherwise privacy concerned users won't have any chance to win because they re-register every day and you'll simply delete their entries because you think they are trying to cheat. But the problem is that the users won't see the page for re-entering the draw because of the auto-deleted cookie.

I fell foul of that too.

I've been doing that as I've gone to the site on different devices. I assumed that a completely fresh (but identical) entry every day was the same as clicking the "get your daily entry" button. Is the not the case?

Entry submission flow is confusing, i would rather fill out a registration from scratch each day instead of relying on cookies and stuff. it is unclear what the daily challenge does, is it just for fun, is it required to be answered, or what, it is not explained. I once was on that page and both the daily challenge Submit and Get Your Daily Entry Submit buttons were there, i answered the challenge,  clicked Submit it and the page refreshed and the Get your daily entry button was gone and i could not get it back and i never received a email confirmation for that day. Since then i do not touch the challenge button, just click the Get your daily entry one. With that i do receive email confirmations.
All in all, i think the flow could have been presented better, it is confusing to have multiple Submit button on a same page.

I do not have a "Get your daily entry" button at all after I submitted my first entry.
And I never got a confirmation email.

Suddenly today I got an email with confirmation and I did not even do another entry, LOL!

So, there is really no way for us to know, if we made it in to the contest or not.
There are 3 kinds of people in this world, those who can count and those who can not.

I have decided I hate competitions I never win. 

The only thing that makes failing the daily draw liveable is the fact that I know that the LED alignment in the sign is winding MikesElectricStuff up the wrong way.

Oh.. and I've decided on selling some merch so I can save up to buy my own 4CH scope. (Although now I've decided I really need a 24+CH logic analyser too)

What really struck my "funny bone" was the subtle "Karate Kid" reference.

If this is true, then there is no chance for me to get anything.
Seriosly: Make the rules clear or the event might have the opposite(getting people pissed) effect than wanted.

I disagree. If anyone goes through the registration and sees the same information entered multiple times, once a day, I don't think anyone would see it as a cheater.

Otherwise, if the same physical address has 20 e-mail addresses being re-registered everyday, I suspect that would be a tremendous red flag.

Oh, the "whys" of the datasheets... The information is there not to be an axiomatic truth, but instead each speck of data must be slowly inhaled while carefully performing a deep search inside oneself to find the true metaphysical sense...

These competitions are important and beneficial for character building so people learn to cope with disappointment and injustice. The South Asia Pacific Quiz probably would have gone to the person who could type the fastest which wasn't me.   ::) :(

If you're using the same email address, all should be well. It's clearly the same person entering. No worries.
