T5 Practice Rally comes to an end.
The T5 Rally ended today. Wow, we sure appreciate all the riders who tested/practiced and shared great fun. We had 1,800 bonus submissions! We all had the privilege to see some amazing efforts!  Uhhh,  It’s pretty obvious there may be some new point whores in the mix.

We’ll leave the posts and leader-boards up for a few weeks, but then they’ll go away as we get set-up for BMR2013!

PLEASE feel free to practice test as you feel best for your needs in the coming weeks, we’re in test mode, nothing is being scored so knock yourself out practicing/testing and sharing your fun with everyone.

Post Notifications -Are you getting yours?
It has been brought to our attention that some riders are not seeing the email confirmations that are sent after each post. These are sent immediately, most riders get them very timely, but it can depend on your email service if you get them immediately or after a few minutes. You also get notifications anytime someone comments on one of your posts.
++ IF YOU ARE NOT GETTING THESE NOTIFICATIONS, it is because your SPAM filter is catching them and not passing them. We’re putting things in place to help avoid being identified as spam ….and you setting your email to pass these actually helps this cause, especially with Google. Google accounts were initially affected when we upgraded the BMR server, but now Gmail seems to have re-found the BMR love.
