Simpsonizeme Not Working

Filed under: Information,web design

Many people have been visiting my post Friday Just For Fun Site – Turn Your Photo Into a Simpsons Character and most have been searching for something like “Simpsonizeme Not Working”. In fact, it’s been my most popular post ever and it makes me think that the Simpsonizeme site is just too busy to work very well.

The people at Burger King have created a site that, if you can get it to work, is very cool and their connection with the new Simpson’s movie could have been one of their best promotions. Today I noticed that if the site is too crowded they are just not letting you in instead of letting you try to start and then giving you the generic error message that really didn’t let you know what was wrong.

Maybe they are not letting anyone in and are taking the time to fix the site, but Burger King may have bungled what could have been one of their best promotions ever. Hopefully it’s not too late to fix this.

The lesson I’m taking from this is that you run a promotion, not only do you have to be prepared for your idea not to work, but you have to be prepared for it to work beyond your wildest expectations (which may be harder).
