Aside: I always chuckle at you guys' bemusement at BJSC
Although I am especially sent by this post
I remember the interaction you're referring to and you completely misinterpreted that! The rule is just that BJSC is only open to accounts that are at least 3 months old (it's a somewhat questionably effective rule to prevent people making alias accounts to vote for their own songs, which yes has happened a couple of times), but we don't have that rule for spinoff contests. At the time you tried to sign up your account wasn't 3 months old yet but we had a spinoff running that you would have been able to enter if you wanted to which is the only reason someone pointed you to it. To be clear you absolutely can just come enter BJSC any time now if you ever want to. x
Accounts that are less than multiple years old? Must be nice.
