The 2019 Instant View contest is over. View results
The Instant View Editor uses a three-column layout, so you really want to use it on a desktop screen that's wide enough. Sorry for the inconvenience.

Issue #1

contact page
Tommaso Madonia
This page doesn't require any interaction
Accepted by admin
This page must not generate an IV in accordance to 2.2 of Perfect Template Checklist: https://instantview.telegram.org/checklist#2-2-pages-that-require-significant-interaction
Tommaso Madonia
Hi admins. My understanding is that rule 2.2 applies to "Pages that require significant interaction" and this page requires no interaction at all. Rule 2.2 doesn't explicitly say that contact pages must never have an IV, instead, it applies to service pages in general with "interactive" content and "contact pages" are mentioned as an example of service pages that could require significant interactions.

Why "about" pages are allowed and "contact" pages without forms are not?
Below, there are a few examples of issues where you said that service pages are optional:
https://instantview.telegram.org/contest/lifehacker.ru/template43/issue3/ (this page even contains contact information)
https://instantview.telegram.org/contest/syg.ma/template4/issue1/
https://instantview.telegram.org/contest/mojang.com/template21/issue3/

Why Template 26 has not been rejected if it generates an IV for the same page?

Next time you should expand the rules to clearly state all the pages that must not have an IV in ANY case, even if:
Declined by admin
Yes, the template author is correct. If the Contacts page had an interactive element such as a 'Contact us' form, it would've meant that it must not generate an IV. In all other cases, supporting these pages is optional.

Please accept our apologies, this decision is now reverted and the template returned to the contest.
