    Who's on Facebook here?

    I could use a favor: it's been a rough month with my wife in the hospital, several job opportunities fell through (i still have a job, so I'm thankful for that), just had to drop $27K (out of my 401K) on a foundation and plumbing repair and I feel like I've just run out of luck.

    So, if you would, visit this Facebook page and vote for my photo for a Direct Buy: Spruce Your Space contest!

    https://www.facebook.com/DirectBuy?sk=app_407532255959294
    (Link doesn't work on an iPhone)

    Ours is the very last photo on the second page (#24), talks about foundation problems, cracked tile and water damage.

    If we win, we'll get $1k towards our remodel and free designer services to help plan it to look nice!

    Thanks.

    ETA: You can vote once a day, each day through Sept 30th. You will have to "like" the page to vote, and when the winner is announced, feel free to unlike.

    Darn... Thanks for trying.

    Question, are you on an iPhone or other mobile device? It works on my iPad (had to re-copy and paste in address bar, didn't work in Outdoorhub app).

    I actually finished the demo today, need to scrub the rotten wood (mold) with a wire brush then clean everything with bleach water (as per the instructions of an environmental engineer), following that with painting the wood with a sealing primer with an anti-microbial additive.

    How'd you get there?

    I'm wondering if it's because I recently tightened down my FB security. :dunno:

    I got a link in the email notifying me I was a finalist. Then I tried on my iPhone with no luck: must be a Facebook privacy thing, the URL does have the word "app" in it. But it works on my iPad, so I'm confounded.

    I was already logged in to Facebook so I just clicked the link, liked the page when it loaded, then waited for the choices to load and went to the second page of choices.

    Not sure if you're on a phone or a PC but, I've noticed several contests don't work with the Facebook mobile app.

    I wonder if you have to "like" the page first. After the winner is announced please feel free to dislike :).

    Thanks for voting: remember to vote once a day, everyday through Sept 30th!

    That's new to me and glad we figured it out. Stupid mandatory "like"... I don't like that.

    That's how pages get free advertising. Whenever you "like" something, facebook has to post it on your wall and put a notice on the constant news feed to all of your friends. I don't like it either. It's hard to keep up with all the newest sex toy manufacturers and still be able to look my grandma in the eye!
