How Many Entries?

How Many Entries?

Postby Alex555 » Wed Oct 24, 2012 11:14 pm

Does anybody know how many contest entries there have been? I think it might also be kind of cool to have an automatic entry counter, if they do not already.

Hehe, sorry no one's counting them just yet, Basicly you drop an enty we process it on the blog, and post about it.
There is a backlog of about 5-10 entrys waiting to be bloged about. Once the entry time expires. We finish posting about all the backlogged entries, and then make final list with links to all the entries. post it on the 7400 part of the site, and blog about it...

The entrys that have been posted on the blog can be found here

it's return a mix of entry and prize posts...
best regards FIlip.

11 posted on the blog, so somewhere between 16 and 21 entries to date.

Competition is good ;-)

Also expect a bunch entering at the last second before the deadline.

Thank you. I was just curious how many people use a different website than the forum for their project.

Is this because they have not gotten to it yet or because they do not want to flood the blog with entries?

It was a backlog in our publishing queue. Two more now. I think about 50 entries, half last year. But I'm not sure exactly how big the last minute flood was.

Will you also have a "reader's choice" vote on the blog?
