I have weighted the scores such that a #1 vote = 3 points, a #2 vote = 2 and a #3 vote = 1. I also don't think the weightings really affect the outcome, as 027 is clearly in the lead, and 005 has 4 & 5 votes, while 037 has 5 & 1 votes (for #1 and #2 respectively). So no matter how you slice it I think that 005 clearly has the lead over 037... Anyway...

Clearly the current breakdown is, 027, then 005, then 037.

Please post your votes if you havent already, and for 027 and 037, please submit ideas (everyone) or modified designs (from the original designers only please), that address the verizon logo, and one sided T-Shirt issues.

At this point, and I hope without hurting anyone's feelings, I'd like to cast my vote for 005, and explain why. Remember, we can go with more than one design - I think we will wind up doing that.

1) simple
2) cool - I'd wear it without feeling nerdy - (insert laughs here)
3) does not mention verizon
4) recognizable by anyone thats heard the audio
5) it says a lot without saying a lot


Current Results for the Remix Contest

I have receive 0 - that is not a single - vote for the Remix competition. Please cast a vote, or at least post a comment that you can't decide :).


Thank you all for following along. The traffic on this site has dwindled quite a bit from the big bang the first weekend - the rest of you are real die-hards - Thank's so much for participating!

I might not be speaking for everyone here but I think you've gone from "hot" to "not" due to these t-shirt and remix competitions. Lost some cred imo.

George Vaccaro said...

@yonner, thanks for the feedback. I don't see why that would be. IMO its just dwindling interest like anything else.

I haven't gotten any negative feedback, and got tons of submissions if that's any indication - but you could be right... who knows...

Thanks for checking in :).

Yeah, it seems like it's just on a natural decline now that many people see this as a resolved issue by now. If anything, i think the competitions helped maintain the interest of the more loyal followers by adding a bit more spark to the entertainment value of this whole fiasco before it really dies down.

I didn't realise that you were weighting votes by order. :(

I think, besides the fact that it is human nature to loose interest in something after a while, the decline in "hits" is do to timing. You have done awesome to keep the attention and excitement of many, but during Christmas (likely the biggest American Holiday) people are too busy for Internet (or at least this kind of Internet experience). Lots of people have vacation (when you're not spending a long day at work there's lots of better things to do), and this week is the "last minute" shopping time for many of us.
I bet people will find out later that they missed out on some good clean fun, after the season (don't forget New Years) slows down. Especially after their friends have had them listen to the actual phone call.

I forgot to say that Tony's latest "paper-wise" design, where the background looks like paper, is pretty clever. I like that one.
And I haven't heard the new remix, but the one that got it started was fun.

@r3m0t

As it turns out, the weights don't change the results.

Everyone, I'm sorry I didn't get to posting the results - I'm still thinking about it and interestingly enough - as My Math said - occupied with Christmas stuff :).

I'll try to get to it tonight.

Thanks for continuing to check in!
