Three rounds ????? [confused] I thought it was two rounds.

That would be great if we were ordering drinks [bonk]

Does anyone know what the "winner determination" critera actually is? Is it votes alone?

I hope the votes are overwhelming for the Lyme Awareness car, I don't think the judges could ignore the votes. But, stranger things have happened lately, right Paul?

Now turning to a positive attitude...what a wonderful place to exhibit the racing helmet in Dr. J's office, especially since the car was a tribute to him and his kids. He certainly deserves it and more for all the children he has helped. I'm sure his kids will love it.

More positives.....Vote, Vote, Vote

Good Job, TC

or why they don't display the vote count

Elaine G said ... "Does anyone know what the "winner determination" critera actually is? Is it votes alone?"

From what I gathered from the Official Rules ....

It is the same criteria as in the first round of judging. 20% of judging is based on public votes. The other 80% is on design, originality, etc.

Glad you like the idea of Dr. Jones getting the helmet for his kids to see. I thought it would be cute that the kids and their parents could have their pictures made with it while they are there, if they wanted to.

I did hear from someone who said that they thought I would look really good in the helmet, and I thought I might just keep it to prance around in or wear it while doing some house work or errands in town... but when I checked it out...

http://www.saferacer.com/bell-star-gp-sah2010-auto-racing-helmet.html?productid=2217

I realized with the under garment I probably would get a bit over heated.

Thanks for voting and promoting!

Paul,

I just noticed your car is way above the rest is the "Likes" category! I didn't even know there was such a thing.

I know that probably is not the category you wanted, but nice to know, just the same, folks are "Like"ing your car!

Wish we knew what happened with the judges decision.

Tincup,

Should we also be voting for the Lyme Awareness car in the "likes" catagory? I am just wondering if it is part of the final judging criteria.

Anybody have a take on this ???

Now, if I could only find the car to vote my like for it !!! [cussing]

Just voted for the car, but am concerned that there is a big problem with the site.

Tincup -- the Dr Jones car shows up on both page 1 and page 2 of the finalists -- which means there are only 9 cars being voted on -- whatever car is missing could easily claim the voting was rigged or get the vote count invalidated.

Logged in again and the site looks ok -- I guess it had something to do with the way they rotate the cars around.

No problem with the site this is how they designed it.

it shows the cars randomly the only way to truly make sure your vote gets in is using the link.

as far as the Likes those are not in the contest but do appear on the most likes page.

Revote now and every day for the next 9 days

I am sooo thrilled to hear that we've already won a racing helmet, and that it will go to Dr. Jones!!

It is also such a wonderful thing to see how gracious you've been, Paul, all this contest, and especially since the weirdness when your car was first in then out of the final 10.

Watching you and TinCup work together, and watching everyone work so hard together towards this goal does a heart good.

Now, down to business, which is voting. Sure wish that the contest wasn't timed for 3 days over Easter, but I guess everyone in the top 10 is in the same position as we are, which is lining up the major push for Monday and beyond.

Getting this far is awesome, whtever happens next.

[group hug]

Hoppy Easter to all!

I went to vote today and noticed that...

The white car was in the voting line-up 2 times.

The pink car was there 3 times.

The silver car 2 times.

And the yellow "#11" car 2 times.

At least 5 cars were missing.

This changes around so you may not see it exactly the same as I did at any given time, but to me that seems like a problem- computer glitch?

So, I wrote to the sponsors to see if they could help with the problem. I also asked if we were going to be able to see the number of votes tallied as we go along.

Hope to hear back soon!!! Will let you know if I do!

Have a good day everyone!!!

I just tried and I can pull up the car to vote- and did- but not the voting line-up page. I get only the LIKES page right now.

My guess is they are working on the computer glitches after getting my email with concerns?

My guess is others probably said something too, but over the holiday weekend no one was able to work on it?

MAYBE we will be able to see the number of votes for all the cars once it is back up, something we couldn't see before... and something I mentioned in my note to them.

I hope you will keep trying!!!

That site is so screwed up. When I check the 10 finalists, the 911 dispatcher car showed up twice and the Lyme Awareness car didn't show up at all.

If someone is going to vote from the finalist page, they can't even vote for the Lyme car.

I checked twice and twice it was the same way.

They didn't answer my question about why voting numbers weren't showing up, but did explain the line-up. Not sure I am thrilled about it, but oh well.

"Thank you for taking the time to contact us.

Please note that this is not a glitch; this functionality is mandated by the Rules. The finalist gallery randomizes upon the page load.

In order to ensure that it is always random, it re-randomizes when you scroll to the next page.

So keep voting and run those numbers up up up!

Many times I went there over the past few days the site has simply said- sorry, not available, try again later. Geez. Has there ever been a more unprofessional (and frustrating!) national competition???!

Nevertheless, I've voted every day that was at all possible, and hope everyone else is doing the same.

I have no trouble seeing the car either, and of course I'm not weird, so that answers the question Tutu raised, along with her pants.

And I vote about 10x/day for the car - it gets my top 10 votes - don't tell anyone...

I just came here to ask what was up and it seems I am not the only one having trouble viewing the page. I have had no problems voting, thankfully, but when I go to look at the finalists it's messed up.

It doesn't make sense that the finalist don't show up correctly (they say this is supposed to happen?). How can people vote that don't have the link?

I have no trouble sharing on Facebook.

This is kind of discouraging. Do you think the IDSA has anything to do with it? [Razz]

Also wanted to thank everyone who is promoting the Racing Lyme Disease Awareness car!

This is exciting!

I went to google and typed in "race car Lyme"... and got almost 50 search results showing where people are promoting it! Holy COW!!!

On the first page through (approximately) 5th page it is filled with our car's news!

And, if you pay attention, you can also see who is NOT promoting the car for our community.

the sponsafier site has been down for 2.5 hours tonight

and nobody can get in to vote.

the page loads 3/4 of the way and freezes

on the bright side nobody can get in to vote on any of the cars so it wont hurt us.

I hope it starts working again soon

Vote, Vote, Vote while you can.

Don't you just love modern technology???

It's great while it is working. Same with puters'

Glad to see everyone trying!!! Sorry it is causing fits for some.

I find if it doesn't load...

I click on the white page where the car is suppose to be 2 times (did that out of frustration) and it starts loading.

????

Don't ask me why, but that has worked for several I've shared that with.

It could be storms are interfering with the cyberspace stuff?

I just got back online because we have been getting them all day.

Since we've not made the Top 10 before, I can't tell you all any more than what I am guessing at and Paul has been able to dig up for us.

But we do keep voting I reckon!

NICE to see the voting in full gear! Thank you all!

Don't trust the stated deadline for voting, as it has fooled us before. I guess we keep trying till the fat lady sings!

Hey tutu...

Oh well... If it is taking up too much space and you HAVE to remove it, I guess you should go ahead.

BUT... since we are going to have to wait till who knows how long before we hear anything.... two days or two weeks (?)...

Why not let it just take a natural slow dive down the ladder and when we have news we know where to find it?

Plus, it may be a few days for everyone who has been voting to check in and see any news that may be coming out in the next few days.

I appreciate you allowing it to stay during the voting. I do, and so do others.

Moderators-

yes, please do allow this thread to stay here where it has been, so that the brain-impaired amongst us can find it again (and putting butter away in my silverware drawer a few days ago surely qualifies me as such). [bonk] [dizzy]
