ResiDance - Throwing Good Money After Bad

Looks like, due to a lack of buy-in on ResiDance they’ve added a contest - you can win a PS2, DDR, (and?) a party for your floor. You get an “entry” for uploading your pic and doing a “ResiDance”.

They’ve also got some sort of a time-travelling team setting up booths for taking photos of people, and uploading them to the ResiDance site.

Maybe if they wanted to REALLY make it work, they could go around and just pay everyone $50 for setting up a profile - ‘cuz if you have to bribe someone to do something, they obviously really like to do it and it’s awesome.

And, yeah… they can time travel… or something: (From the email I received - yeah, I guess I gave Housing permission to spam me somewhere… though they don’t appear to have an opt-out. That’s about as reputable as a Viagra pitch…)

Somehow, Thursday and Friday are co-existing on the 25th, and then they’ve created a second Friday on the 26th. Hey, I love Friday, and having two isn’t really a bad thing, but maybe we could’ve thought of a new name for the day, since we’re switching to an 8-day week?
