I know that there are other threads in this forum which discuss the DV 2012 entrant stus check results. However, I decided to start a new thread to discuss the details of the status checking process that other people experience.
If you have been selected for DV 2012 further processing, please describe us the details of your experince (for example what kind of browser did you use to check your status etc.). I am hoping that every applicant will be able to make sure that "Selected" or "Not Selected" messages are true or not. I describe the reasons below.
I am running a bit suspicious and I wonder if the browser is causing a problem to me. I had 9 applications applied on behalf of my friends (some of them are couples so the total applications is 15). But all of them are doomed
When I went to check the statuses, the website says it only accepts "Internet Explorer" vesrions 6 and 7. Although it does let me check all of the the statuses of 15 applications I had applied, this seems a bit suspicious to me. All of the applications have been submitted in different days (distributed somewhat equally throughout the application period) and I thought at least one of them should have been selected... (I do acknowledge that I might still be wrong and the odds of winning the lottery is very slim)
So, I am inviting anybody who has IE version 6 or 7, please report us if you have received "This application has been SELECTED for futher application" message, or if you have these vesions of IE 6 or 7, but checked your status on other verisions and got the "Not Selected" message, I urge you please retry it on oplder versions...
