"You’ve been selected as Space Apps 2016 Top 25 People’s Choice ...."

I have? But I didn't even participate this year, though I did try signing
up for the Kisumu, Kenya, event -- which didn't take place after all. Also,
I have no involvement with cress.space, though I'm certainly interested.

Could someone please interpret this message for me? Because it doesn't make
a whole lot of sense.
