VOTING

Why aren’t my votes going through? Do the votes change immediately?

The following conditions must be met in order for your votes to go through and be counted:

  • You wait a full 24 hours before you vote from a computer. If you voted at 2:00pm yesterday (and it was counted), your vote will not be counted unless you vote again today after 2:00pm. Please keep track of the date and time you voted last from that computer.You WILL NOT get a warning message like you do the login (#3) if you try to vote from the same computer twice in a 24 hour period.
  • You need to turn your popup blocker off in order for your vote to go through.
  • Your login account must NOT have the warning message “it hasn’t been 24 hours since you voted last”. If you do not receive this message, you can vote but make sure number 1 is met as well.
  • Your not voting from the same computer/house/school/llibrary/business, etc as your friends. If your voting from the same computer in a house, office, school, library, business, etc. sometimes those computers are on the same internet ip address and those votes will not be counted. We cannot tell you if your computer is the same ip as your coworker or classmate so please check first with appropriate people at those locations.

Results change immediately in our system and if the above are not met, your vote will NOT GO THROUGH. So make sure you follow the above to have a steady voting experience.

I’m waiting 24 hours and my votes are still not going through?

You probably have a popup blocker. Turn that off and you will be able to vote. If you do not get a popup that displays the results after voting, your vote did not go through.

Confirmation Emails

If you did not receive your confirmation email, make sure you check your junk mail. If its not in your junk mail, please email us from that email to confirmations@kittenkoffinzombies.com. We will get back to you within 24 hours to activate your account.

I reset my password, how come I can’t login?

Did you click the link in the confirmation email you received? Also, how many times did you try to reset your password? If you reset your password more then once, you have to click on the first confirmation email you received or your login will be locked until you notify us. We can delete your login if you have tried to reset your password so you can re-create it.

Will I get spammed if I create an account?

You will only receive minimal updates from us regarding Kitten Koffin Zombies. You will not receive random spam from companies you don’t know trying to sell you something like Viagra just for putting your email in our system. We DO NOT sell these lists to anyone. I hate spam and I’m sure you do too! We might be contacting you with the email you use to create your account because you won a free calendar though.

Why can’t I see the current contest?

You probably can’t see the current contest because either its over or the page has been cached to your computer. Hit refresh and you should see the current one. If the contest is over, come back soon and vote in a future contest.

Do you check votes at the end to make sure they are accurate?

Yes. At the end of every contest, we review the results to check for accuracy. That is why there is a small delay between the end of the contest and us posting the results. This gives us enough time to view the results.

Why did you change the voting system?

We started using an IP checker for our first voting system. While the votes came in in tremendous numbers, we ran into a problem at the start of the year 08. Our system was compromised with a girl receiving over 50 votes an hour. We have done this contest for an entire year beforehand and this has never happened which threw up a red flag. Most girls would receive 150 votes a day. Online contests using only IP checking is not the best way to run a contest. There are multiple things that can go wrong with proxy servers, spoofers, hackers, etc. This is why we added the login feature. I know its a pain in the ass at first, but its more accurate in the amount of votes then just an IP checker system.

KITTEN KOFFIN GIRLS

How do I get into the calendar?

You only get into the yearly calendar if you win the calendar pinup contest. Only then will you be in the calendar.

Why do you need a photo permission form?

Just like you wouldn’t want your belongings stolen, photographers don’t want their work stolen. The Photo Permission form is essential in entering the calendar pinup contest for multiple reasons. 1. This way, the photographer understands that if you win the contest, their photos will be used in promotional materials for KKZ including magazine articles/interviews, posted on the website and used in the Kitten Koffin Girl Calendar. Neither model nor photographer will receive any proceeds from the calendar sales. Its for exposure and both photographer and model will always be credited no matter what. Its also essential that the photographer fill out the form because of the calendar. It will be printed and sold for profit. Its giving us “usage” for the photo submitted for the calendar for the above items.

What do I need to submit in order to be in the contest?

You need to send us:
1. 6 photos max of retro-inspired pinup shots. These should be GOOD quality.
2. Brief bio.
3. Copy of a photo id for proof of age. This can be a drivers license, passport, etc.
4. Model application-available on the contest info page. This will be signed by you.
5. Photo permission form-available on the contest info page. This is signed by your photographer.

Submit everything to contest@kittenkoffinzombies.com in one email if possible.

Even if you took the photos yourself, you need to send in the photo permission form. And if there are any questions about who owns the copyright/usage to your photos, unless both you and your photographer signed a form granting you full usage to your photos, the photographer owns copyright/usage to the photo. If you have full usage of your photos, I will need that signed contract that you both signed. I would also like to have the photo permission form so your photographer is aware that I will be using the photos they took. If you have any questions on this, please email me at frenchy@kittenkoffinzombies.com

How do I get the forms to you?

Please send entire submission in one email to contest@kittenkoffinzombies.com. You will have to print the forms out, sign and have the photo permission form signed by your photographer and scan in the forms and email them over. If you don’t have a scanner, you can take a digital photo of both the forms and your photo ID and email them from that. If neither is possible, you can always snail mail the forms to us at the below address:

Kitten Koffin Zombies
PO Box 275
Newtown, PA 18940

What’s up with the age limit?

You must be at least 18 years old to enter the contest at time of submission. I get a lot of questions about why there is a max limit of 35 though. This is a VERY loose max age limit! The only reason why i seemed to pick such a random age limit was because I did have women try to enter the contest who were much older then that, and i am trying to keep it towards a younger crowd but I don't want to limit too many at the same time. So if your “slightly” over 35, please do enter!

If I don’t live in the US, can I still enter?

Yes! I have had numerous girls enter that are not in the US. So please do. This is not just a contest for US citizens.

KITTEN KOFFIN ZOMBIES

Why the name?

I’m not one for names that sound too vintage or retro for the pinup contest. There are a ton out there and I wanted KKZ to be a bit different. It doesn’t mean anything and there’s no long drawn out explaination of why I chose it. I put three things together that I love hence KKZ. We are not Zombies in any means! ;) I could make up some long explaination, but I don’t have the time for that. I figured why not leave it a little mysterious so people ask “what is Kitten Koffin Zombies?”

Where have you been featured? (PROMO)
