Alexa Skill Name Change

When I submitted my Alexa Skill for certification, I called it "State to State." I also submitted the submission form here on Devpost and put the name of my Alexa Skill as "State to State."

However, after the submission deadline for the Alexa Skill Challenge had passed (at 5 PM), my Alexa Skill was rejected because I had used the connecting word "to" in the invocation name, "state to state." So I changed the name to "State the State" and updated my Alexa Skill's icons, my project page on Devpost, and the description on my YouTube video accordingly.

The only places where the discrepancy remains are in the actual content of the YouTube demo video and the submission form which I cannot change. Everything else in the YouTube demo video show exactly how my Alexa Skill works. And everything else in the submission form is exactly the same.

The only thing changed is the invocation name. (because my Alexa Skill failed the certification process) I really hope this will not disqualify me as I put in a lot of work into developing my Alexa Skill and it passed certification in all other areas.

    Hey Caleb,

    As long as the skill ID submitted to Devpost matches the skill, we will know the name changed. No problem!
