For the Ubuntu App Showdown I created a Ubuntu-App-Showdown-Participation-Details.txt-File and uploaded it correctly on "My Apps" to participate the Ubuntu App Showdown - Contest. Now I saw, that my .txt-file was changed by someone, because there is a false name and PPA. The txt-file contains an other participant which is listed in app#122 with the app-name "Variety" on Swhodown Apps. The correct app should be my app#38 "Interest Calculation" for my app you can find on My app link. I posted this in the Feedback-section but I am not sure if somewone reads this becauseI got no answers of my other questions, I posted there more than one week ago. I don't want to be rejected from the contest, because someone has updated my .txt-file. The correct content for the .txt-file is also listed in the Feedback-section of my app. This is the copy of original text I uploaded, when I created the app-entry in the developer portal.

I'm the author of Variety wallpaper changer (app entry is here). Yes, seems your application entry is pointing to the exact same "Ubuntu-App-Showdown-Participation-Details_16.txt" file that mine points to. I don't know how this has happened, but can't you just click "Edit" for this section (the link for editing the section is probably: and then upload the correct txt file?

Don't worry, we do take great care in reviewing each app. We saw that, and your app qualified for the contest with the right PPA details. For reference, this was a bug in MyApps: – David Planella Jul 18 '12 at 9:22
