Some great feedback so far. It's a national holiday here but I wanted to lurk using my mobile to check on everyone.
I'm really please with some of the constructive feedback and solution ideas. Ultimately, feedback are mix but heavily favouring towards positive. We will discuss them internally.
The broken URL in the in game mail is a bizzarre one as the link worked fine when tested on our own handsets but turned out broken when sent out to the masses. What is stranger is the replacement of the url's colon with a space, which suggest to me a language encoding issue. We will test and send out another link in our Monday morning which will be in most people's Sunday and the contest's midway point, which is fine. Hopefully this issue won't happen again.
Regarding Cyan. As mentioned prior it is still in the hands of engineering. We didn't purposely witheld it as that doesn't make sense. Hopefully, cyan is ready for next week's contest.
Also, I want to let everyone know that due to daylight saving time (some countries adjusted their time last week, some others vwill adjust this weekend), we have extended this contest by not one hour but two hours! This extra time should help so please take advantage.
Other that that please keep the constructive feedback coming along with your ideas for solution as that is the point of this thread.
