The Results Are In



  • Thanks to the 4,812 readers who collectively cast 5,113 votes, the logo from Snipez is a clear winner. Here it is again:

    Also, thanks to everyone who took the time to make a logo. Here is a break down of the results ...

    1. dailywtf.gif by cricex received %16.8
    2. snipez_wtf.gif by snipez received %55.7
    3. wtf2.gif by pseudonymous coward %0.9
    4. wtf_1.gif by DanielVF received %7.1
    5. wtflogo.gif by Scoutn received %6.7
    6. wtflogos.gif by hostile17 received %12.6

    And some fun facts:

    • After choosing a logo, a cookie was set to indicate that you voted. When recording the choice, the presense of the cookie was recorded, along with IP and forums username.
    • 3.4% of people voted more than once
    • The highest vote count from a single person was 49
    • The only clickable choices were 1-6, yet five votes were cast for non-choices: 7, 8, 12, and 25, 42


  • Well, 42 is the answer to Life, the Universe, and Everything [;)]



    I'm hoping that you only counted one vote for each person? Not that it
    would have mattered since so few voted more than once and the winning
    logo won by so much.



  • I think a recount is needed.  There are some fairly clever haxors
    around here, and some of them may even know how to delete
    cookies!  I didn't know I could vote 49 times....[^o)] [:'(] [:(]



  • WHERE IS THE KATJA LOGO?!?



  • So, when does it go up on the home page? [H]

    Well you certainly could have, but only the first pick (i.e., the record without the Voted cookie = Yes) would have counted. I decided not to block people from picking again if they had the cookie. Judging by the #ips/#votes ratio, looks like no one thought to clear their cookies out just in case they were being watched [;)]

    And CPound, I only included the six logos that met the critera of being "rubber stampable." I'm serious about getting rubber-stamps [:D] -- those would be so great for code reviews.



  • I will definately order a rubber stamp with the new logo when they become available!



    (I bet you would sell more if you made a Katja version though)




  • Woo, I'd love to have a stamp like that! Too bad nobody ever reviews any of my code [;)], and I don't have any authority when (re)viewing other people's code.

    <FONT style="BACKGROUND-COLOR: #efefef">Drak</FONT>



  • Wow... the choice for the logo is a WTF in and of itself. I prefered
    #6, but seeing as how when I voted for #6 the first time, the selection
    page was screwed up and voted for the wrong one. (#5)




  • I am so happy the one I picked got choosen as the winner. It is very creative and I love the facial expression, it truly says WTF.

    WTF? Does this page have 4,812 readers??? WOW. I thought there were only a couple of dozens of members...

    Btw... I've tried to vote for 7, which is that logo with my pic in it. Only one vote? I'm disappointed...

    Now, who was that anonimous guy who has a dynamic IP address and voted 2000 times for this logo, deleting his cookies after every vote? [:P]



  • Analysis of the Breakdown of the Count



    5113 - 4812 = 301 duplicate votes

    301 - 48 = 253 duplicates from 'other' people (who didn't vote 49 times)



    Number of duplicate voters = 3.4% of 4812 = 164



    So, number of duplicate voters who didn't vote 49 times = 163



    Average number of duplicate votes per duplicate voter = 253/163 = 1.55



    Since votes can only occur as whole numbers, at least 90 people voted only one extra time.



    It is possible that everyone except one other person voted one extra
    time, but that would mean that the one extra person would have had to
    have voted 92 times (including a single valid vote), which is more than
    49, so this was not the case.



    Two people could have voted 47 times (including valid votes) and the
    rest voted only one extra time. This is the best (most honest)
    scenario. In this scenario, 161 people absent-mindedly forgot to ink
    their fingers, or possibly inked the incorrect finger after the first
    vote and voted a second time.
















  • Wow, and I thought Alex was into statistics!

    I'll stamp this with the winning logo!



  • Katja, I would have voted for the logo with your pic in it, but my wife would have disapproved...  And I dont remember seeing it on the voting page..... (unless I'm just plain stupid).



  • You are correct...Katja's logo was not on the voting page.

    I'm kinda upset at Alex and his "rules" about what a logo should and shouldn't be...



  • Yeah yeah, CPound, we know you're only p***d off cuz it involved
    Katja.  If it had been Bustascool's avatar (or anyone else who
    isn't Katja), you wouldn't have raised a fuss![:P]
