    Folks DO know you can lose points if cheating is detected, or if it's determined you DIDN'T meet the mission objectives. That is each submission is subject to review.

    I agree we should lose points if the submission does not meet the required standards but cheater should be treaded as such:

    - warning
    - ban

    Just my two cents...

    Quick Announcement!

    Since not everyone has access to multiple BlackBerry's, I've talked with CrackBerry Kevin and we've decided to make a quick adjustment to the rules so everyone can participate.

    For missions where you have to take a picture of YOUR BlackBerry doing something (charging, at the mall, etc.), you are now allowed to create a cardboard cutout of your BlackBerry and use that as your BlackBerry. All BlackBerry cutouts must be made to look as similar to your actual phone as possible.

    Note: This does not mean you can just stack up 5 pieces of cardboard for "Stack Up". The cardboard cutout is valid for ONE phone only.

    Forget the warning. Disqualification from the contest should be the first and only action.

    Good luck to all in the competition! While I would love a new OS 7 device, I decided to forgo since I a) live in the country and figured it would be difficult to track down everything I need to take a picture of and b) keep a busy schedule of job searching and cleaning

    Have fun, everyone!

    Posted an update on the Blogs to the Original Post:

    Updated: Win a BlackBerry 7 Smartphone and more in the first ever CrackBerry GooseChase! It's a BlackBerry Photo Adventure!! | CrackBerry.com

    * August 9th Update: OK GooseChasers, Day 1 is off to a pretty awesome start and we have a lot of users competing fairly for their chance to win in the CrackBerry GooseChase. We've got a couple updates here from the GooseChase team, so just wanted to get theme out for everybody to read:

    * For anybody who was experiencing an uncaught exception has been fixed and all users should download the latest build at crackberry.goosecha.se.
    * A reminder that all scores on the leaderboard are subject to review. People who cheat will NOT win this event, regardless of how it looks on the leaderboard at any given time.
    * Taking pictures of a computer screen is NOT allowed unless the mission explicitly calls for it (e.g. take a photo of their YouTube video, Poem Comment, etc.). Anyone found submitting an invalid photo (e.g. a picture of Jim Balsillie from the internet for J Baller!) will have their entire account deleted along with all of their photos. And we will actually do it.
    * Note that all photos must be taken from within the GooseChase app on your BlackBerry Smartphone. For photos that require you to take a photo of your BlackBerry then, you can either: get creative with a mirror, put a friend's BlackBerry into the photo (PlayBooks count as BBs), or in an absolute worst-case scenario you could make up a cardboard representation of your BB (make it pretty!) that we'll allow to pass for your BlackBerry.

    Try logging in again a few times please. For some reason there are occasional connectivity issues that go away with a few attempts.

    If this (and a battery pull) doesn't work, please drop me a line at andrew[at]goosecha.se and I'll do my best to help you out.

    All pictures should be taken with the fine 5.0 megapixels camera of your Torch, using the goose chase app. So... Hop in!

    Hi,

    It sounds like you've downloaded the main GooseChase app instead of the custom CrackBerry app. To download the right version, go to crackberry.goosecha.se and you will be able to register on there.

    Good luck!

    For some reason the pictures i take fromthe app come out REALLY BAD i have to get a lamp super close to the "scene" to get something semi clear. But if i take with my blkbry the regular way it comes out good.. (These were taken with my Digital Cam (for my blog.) thought it would be nice to share with everyone.

    *since the pics look so dark through the app.
